That’s how Perry felt yesterday as he drove to be with a family member who’s overwhelmed by an emotional, spiritual and mental affliction. On the way he confessed, “Lord I feel so inadequate, so insecure, so incompetent, so weak.” And God said, “I can work with that.”
Then, during the show Shawna wrote, “I feel I’m drowning, that I’m being pulled under by the needs of those I love.” Moments later a friend texted her, “Shawna, I’m praying for you. Praying you can love people well without being pulled into drowning yourself.” God is crazy amazing!
Next, the Grand Canyon difference between the gospel and religion, and what “throw yourself into Jesus” means. Then, our mission is to share the good news of God’s grace till we take our final breath. And leave the results to God!
Next, our culture is grasping for an unshakeable identity in politics, ethnicity, gender, sexual preferences, you name it. And we who know Jesus can seize this cultural moment and show how an unshakeable identity is found only in the perfect love of God.
Last, Five Solas Media creates films for kids, and moms and dads. Stories of faithful people that God has used throughout history to carry on the gospel. And what makes the films extra fun is that the adult actors voices are overdubbed by kids. And they just released John Knox (As Told by Littles)!
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!
