Grammy Award-winning artist Amy Grant has lived in the spotlight since bursting onto he Christian music scene as a teenager thirty years ago. In that time her work, marriage, and spiritual life has been subject to varying degrees of adulation and criticism.
Now, in her first autobiographical book, Grant bares her heart and soul, giving readers an intimate glimpse into her everyday life and the lessons she’s learning along the way. From lighthearted reminiscences of her Tennessee childhood to painfully honest reflections on the journey of faith, her vivid writing draws readers into her world while simultaneously creating space for them to rethink their own perspectives on life.
With honesty and depth, Grant offers poignant and often startling insights on motherhood, marriage, friendship, faith, loss, forgiveness, and redemption. Never-before-shared stories about her husband, country music star Vince Gill, provide a look into her life as a celebrity, while intimate portraits of her mother and musings on the past reveal the various pieces of a life blessed with jagged edges as well as vivid colors. Readers will find their preconceived notions of this music icon stripped away as they settle in f or a warmly satisfying conversation with a gracious and wise friend.
“This is trust: doing what you believe you are called to do and trusting that God will provide.” p.120
Amy Grant could not have said it better that that statement above. Faith is having a trust in God that if you take a leap out into the unknown that he will provide for you, it doesn’t matter whether it is music, writing, or evangilzing.
