What Does It Mean To Be Called?

Kelli Worrall, Professor of Communications and the Chair of the Division of Music and Media Arts at Moody Bible Institute has written the November edition of Today In The Word devo. The theme is Send Me: What the Bible Says about Calling.

Is “calling” just for pastors and missionaries? Or for young people trying to figure out what to do with their life? Does God always call us to do what we’re good at? If God calls us to do something outside of our comfort zone will He equip us to do it?

How can we know that it is God calling us and not our own desires? Kelli answers all of these questions and more in this episode. Also in this episode:

A listener asks, “My wife had a miscarriage. Is this punishment from God for my porn addiction?” Then, what would you tell your 18 year old self in 3 words? Shawna would share wisdom from Jesus’ sermon on the mount, “seek God first”.

Perry shares, “It’s been a looonog journey but I’ve come to the place where I believe that ‘Everything that has happened to me had to happen to make me who I am.’”

Last, is it worldly to be optimistic? No. It’s actually biblical. We’re instructed in 1 Thessalonians to “Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

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.
