December 20th, 1974. The fateful day that would change Chris Carrier’s life forever. That day, walking home from school, Chris was kidnapped just blocks from his home by David McAllister, who drove him out of town, stabbed him, shot him, and left him for dead in the swamps of the Everglades.
Six days later he woke up. 22 years later Chris came face to face with his shooter and did what seems unthinkable. “Sir, I forgive you, and from now on, there will be nothing like anger or revenge between us, nothing except a new friendship.”
And after that, it gets even better! Chris joins the team to share his staggering story of miraculous resurrection, radical forgiveness, and a lifetime of healing from trauma. Please share this show! PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned, Guard Young Ears.
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!
