Prayer is not something we check off our list each day to earn points with God. Prayer is relationship with the God who SO loves us. We talk with God because he loves us, not to get his love. Speaker, author and host of the Prayers of Rest podcast, Asherita Ciuciu joins the team to help us thrive in prayer by resting in the grace of Jesus. Her latest book is Prayers of Rest. Daily Prompts to Slow Down and Hear God’s Voice. First, maybe you feel ashamed because you’re just not praying enough, there’s freedom from that.
Then, how our prayers can affect a thousand generations! Then Perry, and singer, songwriter, and worship leader Natalie Grant have 2 things in common: depression andopening up about it. Next, Asherita had come to the end of herself in a power struggle with one of her children. Then, what God brought to Perry’s mind immediately after praying, “Lord is there something else you want to say to me?” Last, the gospel frees us to experience the oceans of God’s 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!
