Shawna’s friend needed help. She felt the pressure to have the right answer. But then Shawna realized, “I should just ask Jesus to speak directly to my friend.” And He did! Then, Jesus knows how to make the greatest impact through you. And to do so, sometimes he’ll ask you to make a change that just doesn’t make sense. Next, God doesn’t want us to stuff our emotions. He also doesn’t want us to spew our emotions onto everyone around us. But he does want us to bring the whole of our emotions to him. And the Psalms show us how. Then, in the gospels Jesus so often called himself “the Son of Man.” It’s a name that should cause us to fall on our faces before him! Last, he prayed for his doctor, who wanted nothing to do with faith. In that moment, it seemed like an epic fail. But not now!
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!
