I Feel Like You’re Reading My Mail

Maybe you’re better at hiding your emotions than Shawna is. But even if you are, we leak. What’s weighing on our hearts finds its way into our relationships, our work, our days. Jesus not only knows what we’re going through, He is the way through it.

The Bible’s not a book of rules, or of heroes to emulate. It’s the story of a Young Prince who crosses all worlds to come and save us. It’s a story that shouts: “God’s not mad at you!” and how that’s even possible when he has every reason to be mad at us.

Our best intentions unfortunately don’t always lead to the best outcomes. Shawna opens up about the realities of all that distracts us from the truth that we’re loved more than we can possibly imagine. To live loved we need to be reminded as often as possible of who and whose we are.

If you’re feeling worn out, weak, burned out, poured out, if you feel like you’ve got nothing left to give, Perry can relate. And he points us to one of the Bible’s Mount Everest promises of God to give us strength.

When we sin we feel the weight of hurting God’s heart, and often the shame of it tells us that we did is who we are. What if, instead, that pain led us to gratitude for what God has done for us and reminded us that we’re not defined by our own mistakes but by what Jesus did for us on the cross?

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.
