Gently Sharing Jesus in Our Angry World

As Christians, when we take a stand for our faith, we want to avoid coming across as combative or adversarial. While it’s important to be uncompromising when we communicate the truth, Scripture also calls us to speak the truth with love.

But in a world that seems as hostile as ever, how do we do that? How do we stand firmly in what we believe and build rock solid and loving relationships when we differ on the essentials? On things of eternal significance?

Lindsey Medenwaldt, author of Bridge Building Apologetics shares how to engage in a conversation about Jesus with those who question our beliefs. How to pray before, after, and during those conversations. And she even models for us how to share the gospel in 30 seconds!

Then, if you’re a woman, in your honest moments, do you feel beautiful or do you feel ugly. In a culture that demands image perfection, the gospel tells us we’re beautiful for a completely different reason than what the culture gives.

Lastly, do you struggle to trust God in your life? When someone has wronged you and you feel so justified in holding on to unforgiveness, do you wrestle with God’s command to forgive others like He’s forgiven you? What does the Bible say about those who trust their own wisdom over God’s?

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.
