Amy Grant's Age to Age album (vinyl record, of course!) was my first exposure to contemporary Christian music in my teen years and my sister and I loved listening to it and dreaming about being just like Amy! So when I saw Mosaic, Amy's first autobiography I was excited to read it and I was not disappointed! Amy has richly yet conversationally told vignettes and experiences from her life, from charming tales to emotive losses and all the "stuff" in between. With lyrics to her many songs interposed between the chapters, Mosaic provides an honest and heartwarming insight into the life of a talented young girl, her journey as an artist, a person and as a much loved child of God.
I am thrilled to be giving away six (yep, 6!) copies of this fascinating book! To be entered in the draw, leave a post telling me your favourite Amy Grant song by midnight Tuesday 23rd October, 2007.
Read Amy's bio and more about Mosaic below:~
Grammy Award–winning artist Amy Grant has lived in the spotlight since bursting onto the Christian music scene as a teenager thirty years ago. In that time her work, marriage, and spiritual life have 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 for a warmly satisfying conversation with a gracious and wise friend.Amy Grant is the best-selling Christian music artist of all time and the first to garner the number one spot on Billboard’s chart. Since beginning her career at age 17, she has earned six Grammy Awards and twenty-five Dove Awards, and last year she received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Grant’s numerous television appearances include Oprah; Good Morning, America; and Late Night with David Letterman. In 2007 she’ll tour nationwide, performing with local symphonies in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and elsewhere.
