Jared C. Wilson together with his wife Becky Wilson, have authored Go Outside & 19 other Keys to Thriving in your 20’s. Jared says those in their 20s are more willing to learn from the older generation than past generations have been.
In this episode Jared gets honest about the good and bad of his own 20s and he shares that one of the 19 keys to thriving is trying not to be the expert in the room.
Also in this episode: Shawna shares about a time when a good friend asked her, “What are you so afraid of?” Then, those with huge doubts need massive kindness.
Next, as believers do we stand out or blend in? Jesus said we should be identified by the way we love. And last, Perry wonders, “How can I make it to the city of light when there are such powerful sinful motives in my heart trying to destroy me?”
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.
