Perry admits, "I can't uproot the deep sin in my heart, but I know what does!"
One of Shawna’s favorite quotes from The Chosen is when Mary Magdalene says, “I was one way, and now I am completely different, and the thing that happened in between was Him.”
Shawna shares one of the ways she’s been changed by meeting with God daily in the Word. How are you different?
Perry shares, "The more I long for true humility, the more I see how much pride is in me."
Then, if God’s thoughts are not my thoughts, they are higher, holier, better, how can I get His thoughts in my mind? Shawna shows it’s possible and shares practical ways to make reading the word a rhythm in your walk with God.
Last, "Because the bible says so," is not that good of an answer to a tough question. Like this tough one: "What do you think about same sex relationships?"
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.
