Death Teaches Us How To Live

Every one of us will face it. Nobody wants to talk about it. Death.

She was in 7th grade when her mom invited her to climb up on her bed and she told her that she had a lump on breast. It was cancer.

In her book We Shall All Be Changed, Journalist and author, Whitney K. Pipkin, opens up about how her mom’s diagnosis impacted their relationship, what it was like to be her mother’s caregiver, how we all grieve differently, and what her mother dying taught her about living.

This book is for those who are caring for the sick and dying and for those who have already walked that journey.  

Next, Shawna, Scott, and Ben talk about how we all need each other. If you think you can be a Christian and live in isolation you didn’t get that idea from the Bible. We also get honest about the need for the Church  (aka you and me) to get better at forgivingly restoring other believers who’ve made a mistake.

Lastly, we discuss how to establish holy habits in our lives, starting with gaining wisdom from Proverbs.

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.
