Drop Everything and Help Me Now

Perry got a call from his suffering friend demanding his immediate help. In that moment Perry had to figure out how to be patient, kind, and wise all at the same time! Patience is super hard in our on-demand culture.

We used to have to wait days or weeks to get a package in the mail. Now we expect it the next day or even same day delivery. We live in a culture that is fascinated with efficiency and shortcuts.

We have become accustomed to having our wants and needs met “immediately.” But in the haste to become more efficient, we often lose the gift of patience and the art of self-control.

Clinical Director at Winning At Home, Emilie DeYoung, shares the benefits of learning to wait, how to cultivate patience, and the need to keep an eternal perspective 24/7/365.

Also, in this episode Shawna shares that we can talk with God while talking with others. She shares a time when God led her through a painfully difficult conversation.

Last, guilt says, “You did wrong.” Shame says, “You are wrong.” Perry shares about his journey with shame, how it poisons and cripples, and what is the only antidote for it!

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.
