“Destroy Them All God!”

Have you ever so blatantly disobeyed God that you actually did the opposite of what God told you to do?

Pastor & author, Steve Norman of Winning at Home, joins us to talk about what we can learn about God and about ourselves from the story of Jonah in the Bible.

God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn them to turn from their sin but Jonah rebelled and ran the other direction. He hated the Ninevites!

As Jonah was running we see how God used even Jonah’s disobedience to turn others toward him when the pagan sailors began to worship the true God.

God’s compassion is enough for all of us—Jonah experienced compassion in the belly of a fish even though he was running from his mission. And Ninevah experienced compassion through Jonah’s preaching even though he still longed for the people to be destroyed!  

Then, in the day in and day out we may not see transformation, but God is working. Shawna’s friend Cheryl realized how she was different from who she used to be when she took a road trip to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.  

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by your love for God? Todd, a listener, texted to share with us an incredible moment he had with the Lord – a moment that made him want to burst into dance!

Then Perry shares, “There are moments when something will trigger a painful memory of one of my worst sins.” That happened to Perry last week. He shares his default mode to deal with the shame. Maybe you’ll relate.

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.
