Be Kind. Everybody’s Going Through Something

Aaron and his buddy were at a restaurant and asked the waitress, “Is there something we can pray for you about?” And she started to cry. Everybody is going through something. Be kind to everyone you meet.

Then, if you want to be a mature follower of Jesus, don’t run from suffering. When Perry thinks of a person who’s walked this out, he thinks of his son, Taylor.

Next, when you feel overwhelmed do you ever think you’re too much for God? That maybe your need is greater than his ability to provide? Moses felt that way too. God responded to Moses’ feeling of being overwhelmed, with a question.

To forgive the person who’s wounded you so deeply is so hard. Brandon Heath’s song, “I’m Not Who I Was,” is all about his journey to forgive his stepmom. It’s a conversation about the freedom and the painful cost of forgiving.

Then, Shawna shares a childhood memory of fear that she was going to get beat up. But somebody had her back. Knowing who’s behind us gives us holy swagger in life.

If you’re in a season of suffering you may be tempted to think, “God must be punishing me.” But what’s really going on is completely the opposite of that!

Last, do you ever have family drama? How do you handle that in a way that  honors God? Moses had some family drama and man, the way he handled it challenges us to be more like Moses and more like Jesus too.

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.
