“G’day, Mate! How are you going?”

Shawna just returned from Australia and the Aussie’s pace of life made her wonder, “Am I enjoying the journey?” She reflects on Jesus’ pace of life. He wasn’t in a hurry. He took time for the people he ran into even when there was an urgency about where he was going. Are you enjoying the journey?

And now it’s time for another edition of Sauna Stories With Perry. Not really, but God did set Perry up to share the good news with six teenagers in the sauna at MVP. The only thing Perry needed to do was somehow push past his fear.

Next, while in Australia Shawna got to be in church with her daughter and son in law. She shares what she learned from her son in law’s message about being honest with God about our feelings, about our desires, and trusting Him with our future.

Perry shares, “It’s really easy for me to fall into trying to impress you. To work hard gain your respect, applause, admiration. It’s so deeply ingrained that it even showed up in my dreams last night.” 

Then, do you believe that God has a plan even when things aren’t going the way you want them to? Shawna and her husband had an unexpected 9-hour delay in their looooong journey back from Australia.

Because of the delay they met strangers who became friends as they spent an extra 9 hours in the airport overnight. What we call “delays” God calls “my plan.”

Next, a Muslim woman in India and a West Michigan man both saved from drowning by Jesus. 2 stories that show the core of God’s heart—Rescuing love.

And last, if you’re overwhelmed by an enemy. It doesn’t look like you’ll survive this one. Take courage from the ancient king Jehoshaphat.

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.
