Book Review

Mosaic: Pieces of my Life So Far, by Amy Grant.

This is a nice collection of essays, song lyrics, as well as bits and pieces of biography of Grant's life. Organized thematically instead of chronologically, it bounces around from her early singing days to her current life with Vince Gill, growing up with lots of sisters to approaching middle age to raising kids and step-kids. She writes about her struggles with depression, touches on her divorce from Gary Chapman, and explains where many of her song ideas came from.

Some of the stories interested me more than others, but I found it overall an enjoyable read.

Glad you enjoyed it. I haven't been reading much these days, so I'm backed up. But it's nice to hear about what others are reading. Just stopped by to say hello. Been a while.

Gosh, I don't like Amy Grant! Isn't that terrible? I had seen her and Gary at a camp I had attended as a teen, and I was underwhelmed by the things she shared personally; Gary had to dig her out! But I've been disappointed with her...not what she's done so much--I can't judge her heart--but I might have some questions for her on the other side, if she'll indulge me...we'll see.

Like whoever you want to, and don't feel bad about it!

I tend to keep my own tastes to myself so as not to upset those I disagree with!
