“My Son Finished Last, I’ve Never Been More Proud” - Shawna

Of all the races that Shawna has watched her kids run, the most proud she’s ever been was when her son finished dead last.

If you feel like you’re dead last in the race of life and you’re not even sure you can finish, there is a God who loves you and is cheering you on every step of the way. Don’t quit! Keep going!

Then, Perry shares, "Here's what I do when I've let my heart get polluted by the world." Next, “If he can do it, I can do it!” said Shawna’s four-year-old daughter as she watched Olympic athletes compete for the gold.

There’s something about seeing something happen for others that inspires hope in us. The same thing happens when we tell others what God has done for us! Then, Perry admits: "Too many times, I've let my pride get in the way of my heart being healed."

Last, Rob West is the President of Kingdom Advisors. He’s dedicated his professional career to work at the intersection of faith and finance. In fact, that’s the name of his ministry: Faith & Finance Live.

Rob joins us to talk about faith and fear when it comes to our finances as well as the financial questions that are on the hearts of Americans today.

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.
