What’s Your Why?

Perry’s why started on the playground in 5th grade, it grew in a living room in St. Paul, MN when he was 16, and it was sealed the night Jesus healed his excruciating ankle sprain when he was 18.

Have you ever had a moment when your expectations didn’t line up with your reality?  What do you do with that? Shawna experienced that when she found out she was going to be a long distance, international, grandma. Habakkuk 3:17-19 helped her to shift her focus from her circumstances to God.

Perry admits, “It’s easy from me, an achiever, to feel like admitting my sin to God and turning from it is a work I need to perform and get right to keep God’s favor.”

When everything’s going wrong, go to God. As Shawna started journaling a letter to God with the intention of being ruthlessly honest, the Lord revealed to her what was really at the heart of the matter. Her journal entry ended like most Psalms: Giving glory to God for who He is.

Lastly, there is power in prayer. Jesus said all authority in heaven and earth was given to Him. There’s power when we pray in His name. Pray in faith believing all things are possible.

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.
