“I’ll Never Be Who I Was”

Do you ever wish you could go back in time? Back to before you made that mistake, or got that call that changed everything? There’s no way back. But you’re not hopeless!

Brennen Manning says, “Everything that has happened to me had to have happened to me to make me who I am”. All we can do is offer who we are now as we move forward into the future.

“Wasn’t holding you up. So there’s nothing I can do to let you down.” That’s from “Jireh”. Perry shares, “When I was 10, with my greatest failures ahead in life, the love of God was poured into my heart. It’s one of the greatest proofs to me that my salvation doesn’t depend on my hard work.”

“Why did he do it?” Shawna literally said this aloud as she was reading in the Bible about Judas betraying Jesus. Perry and Shawna admit that’s a question they often ask of themselves as they honestly share our propensity to sin.

Perry shares, “The God of my imagination was the God who loved me because I thought I deserved it.” It’s a conversation about how God strips away our false views of who he is so that we can know the real God who passionately loves undeserving sinners.

It was 4:45 am. Time to leave for work. And Shawna could not find her keys! After checking the obvious spots: key hook near the door, countertop by the Nespresso machine, coat pockets, she asked the Lord, “Where are they?” Her very next thought? “Check your trunk.” God cares about the little things and, even more beautiful, He speaks to His kids!

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.
