Seeing The World as it Really is

Do you know what your worldview is?  A worldview is like your mental roadmap for understanding life.  It’s a set of beliefs and ideas that shape how you see the world, what you think is important, and how you make decisions.  Your culture, religion and experiences help to create your unique worldview.

Dr. Jeremy Grinnell joins us to help us understand what a Christian worldview is, and how to live into it. Dr. Grinnell has his PhD in Systematic Theology from Calvin Seminary, he taught at Cornerstone Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI. He’s a bible teacher, a fantasy novelist, a stage and voice actor and has his own amazing story of redemption. Check it out at

Dr. Grinnell helps us understand the central points of a Christian worldview; what is unique about a Christian worldview compared to opposing worldviews, such as Modernity and Post-Modernity. Dr. Grinnell also takes some questions from listeners like Chris, who asks “How do I translate this out of the academic conversation for my kids?”

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.
