Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far by Amy Grant - Review

Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far by Amy Grant
hardcover, WaterBrook Press
ISBN: 140007360X
240 pages

Amy Grant has been in and around music for thirty years when she started her career as a teenager singing songs about faith to churches, youthgroups, and weddings. Her first record came out in 1978 during her senior year in High School. Since then Amy's life has been uphill and downhill experience she shares with us in her biography Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far.

Ms. Grant shares heartwarming stories of her past growing up in Tennessee, along with honest insights to her everyday life and struggles. She bravely opens up with stories of her stuggles in motherhood, friendship, faith, her marriage to country artist Vince Gill, her children, and things she's learned along the way. Amy adds a collection of her songs and poems that flavor her unique stories.

I remember Amy's songs growing up. My Father's Eyes is still one of my favorites. Mosaic offered me a great opportunity to see and feel the life of one of Christian music's legends. I learned so much more about the person who is "Amy Grant" and delighted in the fact that she shares the same fears and triumps that we all do as Christians, mothers, parents and spouses.

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.
