Singer & Songwriter, Ben Fuller, grew up on a farm in Vermont, working alongside his father. He passed the time singing old country tunes. Somewhere between high school & college he picked up a guitar and never looked back.
He was at Unity Christian Music Festival last week and Shawna got to sit down and have a heart to heart with him before he took the mainstage.
Ben opens up about how serving in prison ministry fills him up and shares the story behind his song “Who I Am.” When he met Jesus he was an addict, a liar, and an alcoholic. He says that his first experience with God is the highest he’s ever been.
He talks about how he wished someone had told him at the beginning that following Jesus would be hard. And then he speaks directly to the person who is where he was just 3 and a half years ago. You’ll want to hear what he says.
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 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.
