If you never dreamed of being single in this season, and it really hurts, Michelle Donnelly gets it. Michelle is the head of PlusONE Parents and the host of The Christian Single Moms Podcast. She didn’t plan singleness or divorce, but life happened. She joins our team to share the wisdom born from the pain of her journey. First Michelle shares that till she was 25 she was preforming to get God’s favor.
Then, the painful Christmas morning she was all alone without her kids for the first time. Next, how Michelle learned to know the difference between safe and unsafe people in her life. Then, how she kept dating guys who didn’t respect her. Next, the superpower of boundaries! Next, what real forgiveness looks like, it's hard and its costly! Last, if you feel your identity is shame, God is ready to give you a new name: Seen.
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!
