Shawna puts a high value on feeling safe which is such a challenge in an unsafe world. That’s why, “Be still and know that I am God (Ps. 46:10),” means SO much to her. Then, Jenny, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener, in her nurse’s job, was being bullied by a doctor. That’s when she found uncommon courage to confront him, but with great tact and wisdom.
Next, the culture says truth is like the wind, always changing, unpredictable. God says truth is like a compass; sure, unchanging, leading us to life. Then, Jenny had been struggling with her weight; she was having heart troubles and one night she was gripped by the terrifying thought, “I’m going to die in bed and I won’t be found for days.” That’swhen a supernatural peace flooded her heart.
Next, when Jesus cried, “My God why have you forsaken me,” from the cross it was a signal of his resurrection and of the rescue of the world! Last, Shawna had a friend coming over who tried and tried but couldn’t find her house, so she went back home dejected. That’s when Shawna went the extra mile. It’s conversation about being “devoted to on another in love.”
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
