In sharing our faith, telling people, “You need Jesus,” is nowhere near as powerful as sharing, “It is so beautiful to know Jesus’ love.” The latter creates longing.
Next, we have so many loves that compete for our affections—these other loves are idols, and they suck the life from us. Only the love of a perfect Father can swallow our lesser loves and give us life to the full.
Then, everyone we meet is fighting some kind of battle, has some kind of secret pain. And our kindness and gentleness may be just what God uses to bring them healing.
Next, if Jesus prompts you to reach out in love, out of your comfort zone, and you miss it because of fear, or busyness, remember this, you can always circle back and take a do-over!
Then, Perry admits that his pride keeps God from working in his life but that humility always opens the door. Last, God sees the struggle your life, he hears your cry, especiallywhen you think he doesn’t.
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!
