10 Million Dollar Day

How would you feel if you were offered 10 million dollars? What if it meant you wouldn’t wake up tomorrow? You’d probably pass. Another day of life is more valuable than 10 million dollars. So what are you going to do with this priceless day?

Perry bragged about himself yesterday. He wanted to impress Ben. He finds it so easy to boast in himself. But he’s learning is to boast in the only one who’s worthy—King Jesus. When we boast in him we begin feel the pleasure of why we’ve been created!

God’s love for us is always a reality but sometimes we need to be reminded of its truth. Shawna shares how an unexpected text that reminded her of another truth completely changed her outlook for the day.

In the journey with Jesus, he leads us into humility. He reveals to us, more and more, a deep awareness of our sin. You see this in Paul who went from “I’m faultless before God,” to, “I’m the greatest sinner who ever lived.” How do we handle this descent without becoming devastated? 

Shawna hates having a sliver dug out. She’d rather pretend it’s not there. She realized that she does this emotionally too. What are the consequences of denial when we leave unwanted feelings just under the surface and try to pretend they aren’t there?

Last, when Perry struggled with sin as a teenager, he was afraid to come to God with his mess. The only thing he could say was, “Lord help me with my problem.” Why do we run from God and not to him?

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.
