For the last three weeks Shawna’s been hyper-focused on being more aware that the Lord is with her in every moment. And after the three-week trial she admits, “I’m more aware of how often I’m NOT aware of his presence!” And that’s been so discouraging, until yesterday.
Then, if you’re finding it hard to keep the faith because life so hard right now, don’t spend all your energy trying to muster up enough faith, do something else! Next, Jesus wants to upset your normal, because he has something way better for you than your normal.
Then, Jesus knew Perry’s teenage years we’re going to be painful and so he came into his life when he was 10 to walk with him through it! Last, how do we do everything we do for God’s fame and not our own? We need a new heart and the power of the Holy Spirit.
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.
