If you listen to Perry and Shawna Mornings on the regular you’ve noticed that Shawna’s been gone for a while. Well, she’s back. And she’s excited to share with you about her adventure in South Asia.
Then, one of the reasons Christians are deconstructing and walking away from the faith is because a leader they respected ended up being a big-time hypocrite. If you or someone you know is considering walking away because of this, Perry gives the reason not to.
Shawna has been so impacted by her recent travels that she finds herself wondering if what she has considered “comforts” are actually keeping her in bondage. She’s processing it with the Lord so she can live free.
Last year Perry was wrestling with making music an idol, he didn’t know if he’d ever be able to record again because he’s so prone to make it about himself. But he shares how the Lord has reset his heart for His glory, not his own.
On her trip Shawna had the opportunity to spend time with teenage girls who have been rescued from horrible circumstances and are growing in their relationship with God. Shawna shares the unique way that she was able to be close to them and what she prayed over them.
Shawna shares the core lie that has tried to destroy her life: “This world would be a better off without you.” But she’s finding freedom in knowing God sees her, loves her, and that she does belong in this world, to bless the world. God sees you!
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 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.
