    If you had told a younger Ben Bennett that he would one day be writing books, leading a global movement, and helping thousands heal, he likely would not have believed you. Growing up, Ben experienced abuse and was frequently bullied and belittled. His sense of worthlessness increased when his grandpa died by suicide when Ben was a teenager. Depressed and desperate for comfort, Ben fell into pornography and over-eating to cope. But that was only the beginning of his story.Through therapy, recovery groups, and the transforming grace of a redemptive God, Ben has lived a journey of restoration— a route that he has committed to walking alongside others through Resolution Movement. That personal passion led to his new book, Free to Thrive, co-authored with Josh McDowell. On this episode of Trevor Talks, Ben Bennett tells his story while inviting us to join him in learning to see ourselves the way God sees us.

    Singer, songwriter, author, legislative activist: Natalie Grant has held many titles throughout her storied career. However, at heart, Natalie is simply a girl who said yes to God’s call to step out in faith. In this episode of Trevor Talks, Natalie outlines her road from a childhood in Seattle to an acclaimed eight-time GRAMMY nominee and five-time Dove Award-winning Female Vocalist of the Year. Along the way, God placed a passion in her heart for children who were being trafficked, both at home and around the world. The result is Hope For Justice, a nonprofit organization that has brought restoration to the lives of 102,803 children in the last year alone and recently was a key player in passing groundbreaking labor trafficking legislation. Natalie Grant is bringing her passionate heart and intensely resonant voice to so many places that we could barely cover all of them in this episode. You’ll find so much more of the story in Natalie’s most recent book, Dare to Be, written in collaboration with her ministry partner Charlotte Gambill.

Smith’s commitment to the Gospel of Christ and the craftsmanship of songwriting would catapult him to 3 Grammys, 45 Dove Awards, and countless number 1 hits. But before there were accolades, there was a family— and a testimony. On this episode of Trevor Talks, we’re privileged to hear the origin story of Michael W. Smith. He gives us a glimpse at the incredible character of his parents, detailed in his new book The Way of the Father. He honestly shares about his prodigal experience in young adulthood, about how drug and alcohol led him to rock bottom a supernatural encounter with God’s love. He brings us up to the present day, detailing the way his career began through God’s grace expressed through fellow musicians (like Amy Grant and Higher Ground) and has continued in grace every step of the way.
