Don’t Know How Many Days I Have Left (Every Day is a Gift)

So, Sadie takes it one day at a time, counting each day a gift, shining brightly and completely trusting in God’s plan! When Sadie Klingenberg was a baby she received a liver transplant. Her medical team didn’t think she’d live to her first birthday.

But she’ll be 29 on February 20th! That said, because of how Sadie’s body has responded to the transplant she’s had a lifetime of great physical pain, but that has created in her a deep dependence on Jesus. Sadie radiates Jesus! 

But because Sadie’s liver doesn’t work in the way it should, she knows that her next birthday could be her last on this earth. First, “God and angels speak to me.” Then, the cleaning lady who was an angel. Next words of hope for you out of Sadie’s deep suffering.

Then, “I long to be with Jesus.” Next, “If you finish your race before me,” Sadie’s mom. Then, Lori, a Sam Wise on Sadie’s journey. Next, “If you don’t think God doesn’t want you,” Sadie. Last, Moody Radio listeners have been praying for Sadie for almost 29 years! Share the show!

Perry LaHaie

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

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.
