Cookie Butter Comfort

Yesterday Shawna was feeling sad so she grabbed a spoon and dug for comfort in a jar of Cookie Butter. What do you turn to for comfort? Your answer might reveal an idol. Psalm 62:5-6 tells us our comfort is in God alone.

Perry’s been reading Counterfeit Gods by Timothy Keller and God continues to call idols out of his life as well. He’s realizing that he can sing all he wants to and still get it wrong.

Michael W. Smith shared in a documentary that he has 2 life goals: First, “to be a perfect conduit for the Holy Spirit” and second, “to never be offended again,” as long as he lives.  That’s humility. Shawna shares a prayer by Francis of Assisi that she has made her own as she pursues living the “you before me” life God calls us to.

Perry admits that he’s struggled with sin since he was a teenager, but he knows something now that he didn’t know then. Last, David Harms joins us to share about Moody Radio’s partnership with India Partners to rescue vulnerable children and women from human trafficking and to share with them the love of Christ.

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.
