My name is Benjamin Shartow and I’m here to say, I love Fruity Pebbles in a major way!
Check it out. I’m just a Christ servant, youth pastoring, Emcee DJing Art Van salesman, who plays percussion and loves his family. I have the most beautiful, loving, hardworking, stay-at-home wife/mom who not only takes care of me (I know, a real task right?), but takes care of my God fearing, Christ worshiping children; my music loving, laid back, handsome son Gabriel, and my beautiful, dramatic, look-at-you-and-melt-your-heart princess, daughter Gianna. And a beautiful baby girl Abigail.
My passion is for my God, my family, supplying for my family (you know, food on the table, roof over your head kinda stuff), and the students at Journey 21…in that order! My goal is to give every student the chance to make the right choices in life that will launch them toward success…the first being a relationship with Christ. We serve as a family and invite any student to be a part of our family. Gota eat, gota work, gota have fun!
