Last Wednesday, Asbury University students made their way to chapel. When the last worship song was played, students didn’t want to leave because of the thickness of God’s presence. And they still haven’t left! Author, communicator, podcaster, Steve Norman of Winning At Home teams up with us to talk about what’s going on!
First, history tells us the prayer always comes before revival and right on the heels of prayer is repentance, turning from our sin to the mercy of God. Then, Steve admits, “I don’t want to open up about my sin, I want to armor up and come off all put together!” And Perry has a confession to make. Next, just recently Perry realized that he initiated bullying against one of his best friends in high school. And so just this last Friday, he sent a letter asking for forgiveness.
Then, when we crash into grace, it moves us to repent. Last, Steve went through Celebrate Recovery and was moved by the Spirit to write letters to those he’d offended. And some he’d offended rejected him. About that Steve says, “It’s not about the person I’ve wronged accepting my amends, it’s about doing anything I can to build a bridge to someone I’ve wronged.” Please share this show!
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.
