Freedom of Self Forgetfulness

Perry shares, “Basing my identity on my performance comes naturally, but it’s an agonizing way to live. Cause some days I get the applause and other days I faceplant. And the only way out of this is to be perfect which is insanity, or to base my identity on Jesus’ performance which is freedom!”

Then, God wants to be with you. That’s what Christmas is all about! The Father sent the Son to be with us – Immanuel. As you prepare your heart for Christmas, reflect on the mysterious, beautiful truth that God wants to be with YOU.  

Next, Perry admits, “I long for a home I’ve never been to, I long for life as it should be but that I’ve never experienced.” What is this longing? 

Last, Rob West is the President of Kingdom Advisors and the host of Faith and Finance Live on Moody Radio. He’s dedicated his career to work at the intersection of faith and finance. He shares with us how he keeps the real meaning of Christmas central in his life during all the hustle and bustle of the season.

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.
