Biography

Pam Shuler is a singer/songwriter who currently lives in the Midwest. The genres she most often sings are country, pop rock, and Contemporary Christian. Most recently, Casting Crowns, Selah, Michael W. Smith and FFH have influenced her.

“ Pam Shuler is a recognized name and notable voice in the southeast Wisconsin region. Her sunny smile and charisma lend themselves to the stage.” She has been featured at dozens of regional venues including the Beaver Dam Home & Business Expo, Dodge County Senior Expo, Battle of the Christian Bands, regional bookstores and area festivals. Her CDs are on sale in WI, CA, Michigan, and Indiana, and on several web sites including www.pamshuler.com, Target.com, Amazon.com, and AppleiTunes.com.

Pam’s debut CD, “While I Wait,” was released in 2007. About this project, Pam comments “This life can be difficult, but the waiting process is essential to build and strengthen our faith. One thing I am sure of – God sees the big picture and we cannot. His answers are always the best and his timing is perfect.”

Pam is currently recording her second CD at Paradyme Studios in Madison, WI. The songs of this project cover life principles using modern country and pop rock sounds. Some new songs are "Put On Our Armor" and "My Southern Home".

“Music has always been an important part of my life,” says Pam. In fact, Pam has been singing and entertaining audiences since she was four years old. “When we were still children, my twin sister and I performed at a gospel sing near Versailles, IN. I remember the thrill of singing in front of a full crowd at the church and loving every minute. My singing started in the church and it has flourished there. I had many opportunities to sing and improve my talents. My grandmother, Marie, a renowned music instructor, encouraged me to perform and that opened many doors for me.” It was while Pam was putting herself through engineering school in Flint, Michigan that she gave her heart to the Lord. She was forever changed. Pam has performed a wide variety of musical genres, but her favorites are inspirational, pop rock, and modern country.

In 2001, Pam, along with her family, moved to Wisconsin. Since that time, she has actively pursued music writing and performing as a profession.

Pam still gives her time to be part of the Praise and Worship Team in her local church as well as to lead worship through music across the states. She endeavors to use her musical gifts to encourage and to inspire others.

Lyrics

Joy in the Morning

Written By: Pam Shuler

I’m pressed on every side
But I am not crushed.
Perplexed from day to day
But I will not despair
Pressed like my Lord Jesus
Yet never abandoned
Struck down and nearly dying
But never destroyed

I know that on my own
I can nothing
But I must do all things
Through your strength and your power
For you are my Lord Jesus
And You are my Potter.
I know that you will
Mold me each and every day.

Chorus
Joy comes in the morning, Yah
Lord Jesus I’m learning
That you never leave me
Nor forsake me
On the outside I’m wasting away,
On the inside renewed day by day.
Fixing eyes on unseen things
I do not lose heart

What was to my own profit
I count as loss
For the sake of my Lord Jesus
Who hung on that cross.
You have made me righteous
It comes from you.
I want to be more like you
Each and every day

Chorus
Joy comes in the morning, Yah
Lord Jesus I’m learning
That you never leave me
Nor forsake me
On the outside I’m wasting away,
On the inside renewed day by day.
Fixing eyes on unseen things
I do not lose heart

It’s not that I’ve obtained this
Or that I’m perfect.
But I press on toward the goal
To win my heavenly prize.
I forget the past
It’s under your blood.
I strain toward your leading
I will not be afraid
Never be afraid

Chorus
Joy comes in the morning, Yah
Lord Jesus I’m learning
That you never leave me
Nor forsake me
On the outside I’m wasting away,
On the inside renewed day by day.
Fixing eyes on unseen things
I am fixing eyes on unseen things
I will fix my eyes on unseen things
I do not lose heart.

Trying to Find My Way to You

Written By: Pam Shuler

Trying to find my way to you.
Trying to find my way to you.

Verse 1
In the shadows, sometimes
I can’t tell if you’re there.
Then I listen and I hear,
My child have no fear.
I will give you my light,
So your sight will be clear.

Chorus
I want your will
To know your ways.
You are
The Ancient of Days.
I need more faith,
I need more strength,
All the hope that only You give,
So I can truly live

Verse 2
At times the days are dark
I struggle to be free
As I keep on
Keep on being me.
You whisper to my soul,
to you must I
bend my knee.
(Chorus)

Verse 3
I read your Holy Word
To know what I should do.
Those people watching me,
I wonder what they see.
So I turn toward your light
You make all things right.

Chorus
I want your will
To know your ways.
You are
The Ancient of Days.
I need more faith,
I need more strength,
All the hope that only You give,
So I can truly live.

Everything to Me

Written By: Brian Waechter

Who am I that You are mindful of me
You died in place of one so unworthy

And when my sin and guilt
took me down dark roads You forgave me
and sealed the blessed hope that

CHORUS

One day I’ll walk streets of gold
and watch as
heaven unfolds
To no more pain
and no more fear
Your love will dry every tear

And then I’ll join all the saints
to praise You in that holy place
And our song
shall ever be
Jesus, You’ve been everything to me

There are times that my whole life is shaken
And I question paths
I have taken

But there is one thing
my looking back shows You’re always faithful
and You will lead me home
‘till

CHORUS
One day
I’ll walk streets of gold
and watch as heaven unfolds
To no more pain
and no more fear
Your love will dry every tear

And then I’ll
join all the saints
to praise You in that holy place
And our song
shall ever be
Jesus, You’ve been everything to me

CHORUS
One day
I’ll walk streets of gold
and watch as heaven unfolds
To no more pain
and no more fear
Your love will dry every tear

And then I’ll
join all the saints
to praise You in that holy place
And our song shall ever be Jesus, You’ve been everything to me

GIVER OF LIFE

Written By: PAM SHULER

GIVER OF LIFE

Chorus
You are the giver of life,
The Breath of life,
The Meaning of life,
You are the Way, Truth, the Life.

You are life forevermore,
The Gate and the Door.
You gave your life for me
So I could live eternally.

Verse 1
Thank you for this day.
I’ve come to seek your face.
Praise you for these eyes that can see,
Ears that can hear
And a heart that believes.
I just want to say…

Chorus

Verse 2
Your Spirit lives in me.
You saved me from my sin and set me free.
You accept me, lead me faithfully
And help me to believe.
So I just want to say….

Bridge
You are love, joy, peace
Patience, kindness.
Goodness, faithful, gentle
My self control.
You are alive
And so am I.

Chorus

Verse 3
Saviour, all my hope in you I’ve found.
I can’t wait to hear the trumpet sound.
When the Word (of God) stands upon the Mount
I will sing and shout.
And I will loudly say…
Chorus

Crossin' Over

Written By: Pam Shuler

CROSSIN’ OVER

Chorus
Crossin over from doubt to trust,
Crossin over from death to life.
Hearing God’s words
Believing His promises
Walking by faith and
Not by sight.

Verse 1
We’re crossing River Jordan
And moving into Jericho
Obeying what God tells us
in His Holy Word of Truth.
Travelers in a foreign land
Needing Jesus’ mighty hand
Walking by faith and
Not by sight.

Verse 2
Moses told God’s chosen ones
How to keep His covenant
He gave them God’s decrees
to guide them day and night.
Wandering in the wilderness
For 40 years of stubbornness
Aaron led the remnant
To the promised land in sight.

Verse 3
At times Jesus will test our faith
He’ll have us do uncommon things.
We might leave the familiar
He’ll often change our names.
Just ask Father Abraham
Simon, Saul or Jacob.
When we all get up to heaven
We will see our Lord and King.

Verse 4
He’s changing weakness into strength
So living stones remember him,
We’re putting on His holiness
In place of earthly sin.
Trading Satan’s lies for truth,
Worshiping Almighty God
Walking by faith and not by sight.

Chorus
