Meet the Mid-Morning Producer: Bekah Shaffer


My name is Bekah Shaffer, and I'm the Mid-Morning producer. I came to WBCL in July 2011, after spending 11 years working as a Financial Aid Counselor at Indiana Wesleyan University. (Talk about a career change!!) I applied for the job as an act of faith and courage, and truthfully, I didn't think I had a chance of being chosen! I promised God I would walk through the doors until He closed them; then I sat back and waited for Him to close them. But He didn't!
I love to write and in fact, four years ago, I saw a long time dream come true when I published a devotional for the Christmas season titled His Advent: Still His Greatest Gift. I work on new projects all the time, and I also blog every day.
When I’m not writing, you can probably find me doing one of the following things: scrapbooking (I’m pretty serious about my scrapping!), taking pictures, cooking, hunting for the next perfect recipe, shopping at Cato or Hobby Lobby, or enjoying a coffee date with my husband!
My husband's name is Ryan Shaffer, and we love our love story. God wrote an unmistakably beautiful masterpiece when He began to weave together two people whose hearts had been hurt. Ryan and I strive to serve and honor the Lord with our lives and marriage...and we are determined to squeeze the most fun out of this life that we possibly can! We are privileged to live out the story God has written for us. It's been a joy to watch what has happened in the hearts and lives of those around us as they've watched our love unfold, too.
If you missed it - or if you just love a good love story and want to see it again...check out Ryan's surprise on-air proposal to me - from our October 4th 2012 BLT show! We were married at sunset on Siesta Key Beach, December 2, 2012 in a beautiful, intimate ceremony, officiated by my brother-in-law, Jeff Blackburn.
