Put Yourself Out There

Are you struggling with loneliness? Do you just really long for a good friend? Shawna’s been there. More than once, actually. As she prayed for a friend she also took some intentional steps to grow deeper in her relationships. You can too. We were created for meaningful relationship with God and with one another.

A couple weeks ago a temptation grabbed Perry’s imagination. The temptation was saying to him, “If you give in to this sin it will deliver all your heart is longing for.”

Shawna is so grateful for growing up in a Christian home where she always knew that God loved her. But there came a time when she personally decided to follow Jesus, even if her family didn’t. She shares her story with us.

Singer & songwriter, Rachael Lampa, was seemingly at the height of her career when she walked away from it all. She was working with her parents non-profit discipling women in jail when these words came to her, “You’re not a problem. You’re not a mistake. Don’t need fixing or solving.” That was the beginning of her new song that put her back on the road, “Perfectly Loved.”

Shawna got to sit down with Rachael at Unity Christian Music Festival and she shared the story behind “Perfectly Loved” and another song of hers called “Somebody To You.”


Stay Connected


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.
