“I Just Feel Like I’m Never Enough”

Perry admits, “There is this massive gap between who I am and who Jesus is, and I feel that deeply.” It’s a raw conversation about when we feel like we’re not enough and what God feels about us when he knows we’re not enough.

How can you know if you’re growing spiritually? By taking an honest look at the fruit of the Spirit in your life. The Holy Spirit does the heart work from the inside out to make us more like Jesus.

Perry shares, “I was feeling discouraged, a bit down, even a little depressed. And that was yesterday!” And then he started thinking about the gospel and he realized God was speaking right into his discouragement.

Yesterday was a hard day for Perry. But on the way in to do the show this morning, the Lord showed up to restore his anxious heart. New mercies are really a thing! 

When our circumstances are hard, hopelessness sinks in. But when we fix our eyes on God we are reminded that anything is possible.

Last, at what age should we start giving children money for helping out so they learn how to handle, save, buy things, basically to learn to manage money, and how much should we give them?

Host of Faith and Finance Live, Rob West, shares some great financial wisdom and practical tips for helping our kids understand and practice biblical stewardship.

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.
