Amy Grant is sometimes referred to as “The Queen of Christian Pop.” Born on November 25, 1960 in Augusta, Georgia, Grant became a successful crossover pop performer in the 1980s and 1990s after establishing herself in the contemporary Christian music set. She has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Her early Christian music hits include “Father’s Eyes” and “Angels.” Her 1991 album Heart in Motion led the Billboard Christian music chart for 32 weeks and produced the No. 1 pop single “Baby Baby.” Grant has won six Grammy Awards and had the first Christian album ever to go platinum.

We've all had those throw-in-the-towel days, the kind that make you want to give it all up. In Amy's song, she sees two letters. The first is from a friend reminding her of the ultimate goal--heaven. The second is from God, with the same reminder, that heaven is our home, and we're only here to learn to serve Him. She bemoans how often she forgets this important truth, but isn't that how it is for all of us! Oldie, but a goodie.
