“I’m So Pathetic All I Do Is Fail”

Maybe you think this about yourself, “I’m just so pathetic because of my failures.”  Or “God could never forgive me,” or “God knows everything about me, I must look so ugly to him.” Perry admits, “I can so easily fall into these poisonous thoughts.”

Shawna is so grateful for the people in her life that show her who Jesus is. Like her Dad who showed her our Heavenly Father’s love. Who showed you who Jesus is?

If you’re riding the wave of victory, good for you! But that fine moment does not define you. If you’re feeling the pain of regret because you blew it, we’re so sorry. we’ve been there. But that doesn’t define you etiher. You are special because you are loved by God!

Some define faith as, “Trusting God when life makes no sense.” Others say faith is about “signs, wonders and miracles.” We tend to gravitate to either/or in our journey with Jesus. But in the case of faith, it’s both/and.

God’s ways don’t always make sense to us but I do trust the He knows what’s best. And He chooses to use people, you and me, to tell the world about Jesus. If that’s God’s plan it must be good!

When you run into a crisis in life it can be all you see. The only way to praise God through it is to shift your focus from the crisis to the King. When we’re looking at and to Him we can’t help but praise Him.

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.
