“Don’t Cross This Line!”

When God gives you a kingdom dream and you step into it, you will be opposed. That’s what Enoch and Nathan faced as they walked into an Islamic city to share Jesus. An angry man got in their faces, drew a line in the dirt and said, “Don’t cross this line!”

Then, instead of blending in to a polluted world we can be a breath of fresh air! Paul encourages us to shine like stars in a crooked and depraved generation by not complaining.

Next, there will be plenty of opportunities in December to feel like getting the right gift, or having the cookies turning out just right, is the most important thing. Let’s keep Jesus at the center this Christmas.

Then, Peter, who denied Jesus three times, was forgiven, and learned how to lead. Before his denial he wanted to rule on a throne, but after his failure he learned that leading looks like washing feet. And it’s the same for you and me.

Last, we love feeling needed but feeling needed isn’t the reason to say “yes.” It’s okay to respectfully decline.

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.
