“I Feel Like a Failure and a Fraud”

This is how Perry's been feeling lately. When deep feelings like these come, there's only one way to not be swallowed by them!

Does the mention of Jesus’ name stir affection in your heart? If not, tell him. An honest conversation may be just what you need to get a fresh start. Everything in your life depends on the quality of your relationship with God.

Jeff, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener, is wrestling. His uncle just passed, and he doesn't know where he's ended up. Perry and Shawna have some words of encouragement. 

Do you ever wrestle with the generosity of others? The best way to express your gratitude for their generosity is to accept their free gift. The same is true with God.  Galatians 5:1 says: “Christ has set us free to live a free life.” Instead of trying to earn it or pay Him back, live free!

If you have doubts about your security in God's family, you're not weird, you're not the only one. Perry has these feelings as well and shares how he finds security in the midst of his fears.

Jesus said He is the truth. He also said His true disciples will know the truth and the truth will set them free. The more we ask God, through His Holy Spirit, to control our minds the more we will live in the truth and experience the freedom Jesus spoke of.

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.
