Our culture has been sending a heavy message: “Find a healthy work/life balance!” You could say there’s been an emphasis on every area of life that is not work.
Has the pendulum swung so far that we are devaluing the role of work in our lives? If so, how is that impacting our approach to work? What does the Bible have to say about work?
David L. Bahnsen, founder and chief investment officer of the Bahnsen Group and author of his new book, Full-Time: Work and the Meaning of Life says “It’s time to get back to the Garden of Eden and understand what God created us to do.”
Perry shares, “On a run in East Nashville last week and I heard a rooster crow. It made me think of Peter’s denials of Jesus and of my own.”
In Acts we see the early church was of one heart and mind and shared generously with one another. You might think the Church is failing in this today. Shawna reminds us that if the Church is failing, then we are failing, because we are the Church!
Last, Perry shares about his brother who’s been suffering for 40 years and isn’t getting better. It can be really discouraging but he shares how he’s able to remain hopeful even though things are not as they should be.
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.
