“If I died today would I immediately go to heaven?”

Dr. Jeremy Grinnell joins us to answer your bible questions, starting with  “If I died today would I immediately go to heaven?”

Jeremy earned his Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Calvin Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI, and taught theology at a local seminary for nearly 15 years.

Here are the other questions Dr. Jeremy takes on in this episode:

“Okay, so I am going through a tough divorce. I know I am to be of 1 mind. I pray for the divorce to be over but also for reconciliation. Is there presidence for this type of bipolar prayer?”

“God was sorry he had made Saul king. Can you talk about that?”

“If we can so easily look up the original language for words, to gain better understanding, why isn't the bible written from that type of insight?”

Next, a couple of Shawna’s small group friends, Sandra Johnson & Nikki MacVean, stopped by the studio to surprise her for her birthday. She couldn’t wait to introduce them to you.  

They share how reading God’s word together, and coming together to talk about it has impacted their lives. We need each other. We come to know God better when we’re walking in love relationship with Him with others!

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.
