“God, Why Did You Flood the Earth??”

Perry wonders, “What was the point of the flood? God cleansed the world of all evil, Noah and his family came out of the ark, but the world just fell back into even greater evil!”

Then, Shawna got a call and immediately knew her day was about to take a radical turn. Those moments can be unsettling. But our peace isn’t determined by things going the way we’d planned but in trusting in the God who’s planned our days.

Perry shares, “There were 2 times in my life that I believed I’d be swallowed up by the darkness—as a teenager chained to my sins, and then in a deep depression when I felt cut off from God.”

Next, Shawna was overlooked in the waiting room. Her initial “annoyance” at the inconvenience revealed her desire to be seen. We long to be seen, known and loved. That need isn’t met in anything but the God who put the need there, and longs to meet it.

Last, God sent Aaron to Moses to help accomplish his God-given assignment to set Israel free. God has really beautiful plans for your life too. And you don’t have to go it alone.

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.
