“No Time Spent With the Father Is Wasted”

He had spent a couple of hours walking the beach, enjoying God’s company, when he felt the need to head back to the condo. He felt the need to be “productive”. That’s when the Father told him, “No time with me is wasted.”

Dan Seaborn, is the founder of Winning at Home, a ministry providing speaking events, counseling, and life-giving resources to help families and marriages not only survive, but thrive.

In this episode Dan shares with Perry and Shawna on several topics: Coming to terms with not being a perfect dad, spending time with the Father throughout your day, our ability to be deceived by culture.

Also, our need to be in God’s Word to discern false teaching, the value of intergenerational relationships, and that the deeper we go with Jesus the more joyful we become.

Always a joy to have Dan Seaborn on the Perry and Shawna podcast. Share this with a friend and please subscribe!

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.
