“I Was Not One of the Cool Kids”

There was a moment in Shawna’s life when she felt so seen, known, and loved that she didn’t want that moment to ever become a memory. She shares why it impacted her so deeply and how we can live in the right now reality of God’s perfect love.

God’s says that believers “go from strength to strength” as we make our way to our forever home. But maybe you feel like you’re going from weakness to weakness on your journey. If so, Perry can relate! And he’s got encouragement for you.

Then, you can know about God and not really know Him. Who do you know who really knows God? What if you asked them what they do to nurture a personal relationship with God so you can really know Him too?

Next, Clayton, a Perry and Shawna listener stopped by the studio to meet them and we asked him to hop on mic to share the moment he decided to go all in with God!

Last, Perry shares, “It’s so easy for me to love what the world values— applause, acclaim, likes, follows; but Jesus is breaking me free.”

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.
