Perry admits, “Every time I’ve sinned against God I’ve brought shame on God’s family, and my own family for that matter.” And yet if we’re in God’s family Jesus is not ashamed to call us “My brother! My sister!” How can that be?
Then, she’s got the whole world in her hands. That’s how Shawna was living before Christmas. Like life was all on her. And she admits, “It was my pride that was causing me to think that.” Next, Jesus had moments when he hit the wall. When he had no strength for his next step. That’s why he can help us when our strength is gone!
Then, God is holy, and we are sinful. But Perry doesn’t think that should be our moment-by-moment focus. Next, on the other hand we can treat sin too lightly. Last, reading just bits and pieces of the bible is like walking into the middle of a conversation: When we understand the one story of the bible, the bits and pieces make way more sense.
There is wave of wokeness raging through our culture that threatens to sweep our families away. But it’s not time to cower in fear. It’s time to allow the Spirit of God and the word of God to flow into us as parents and then out of us into our children. It’s the way forward to building an unshakable family that blesses each other and our world. Dr. Daniel Huerta, Vice President of Parenting at Focus on the Family joins the team to winsomely point the way! It’s all about families that not only survive but thrive!
Wokeness threatens to sweep away our kids, even our youngest. But it’s not time to throw stones at culture, it’s time to pour into our kids. To teach them who they are and why they’re here. We can raise up unshakable kids in a culture that’s shaking. And Daniel Darling can help us! Daniel’s a pastor and author. His brand-new storybook for your kids is The Biggest Best Light.
His book is the springboard for our conversation. We talk about teaching kids three to seven to know who they are: beautiful image-bearers of God. Then, how to teach our kids to show God’s love to their broken world. And last, we talk about how to joyfully teach our kids to own their gender and how to have organic conversations with your kids about your faith!
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!
