Shawna is a pretty amazing rock-climber and somehow this has a lot to do with how much God delights in us : ) Then, Perry’s son Taylor caught the message growing up that he had to earn God’s love. In college it nearly caused him to reject his faith. Instead he leaned into the suffering and doubt. Next, one day all the earth will shout for joy to the Lord. What if we could bring a little bit of that into right now?
Then, Middleville was reeling after the suicide of one of their teens, and so Shawna went to the football field to pray. That’s when God did something in her heart she didn’t expect. Last, in Perry’s journey he has wrestled with fears of being kicked out of God’s forever family. But the struggle has deepened his faith and has given him more confidence in God’s love. He shares some hard won lessons.
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!
