Amy Grant Looks Forward and Back in Personal Glimpse at Faith, Career

(Cameron Powell)
Amy Grant, six-time Grammy winner, multiplatinum recording artist and more, could have any number of things to say about her career. But as she celebrates that career and the release of the 30th anniversary edition of her iconic album, Heart in Motion, they all boil down to one thing: the faithfulness of God.

"As I look back over the last 30 years ... I feel so humbled by the tenderness of God," Grant tells Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast network. "And my prayer for all the people in my life that I know and love is just, 'God, keep finding them the way You keep finding me.'"

Grant, 60, shares the story of how she wrote the lyrics for one of the popular tracks on Heart in Motion. "The real charm of 'Baby, Baby' is the incredible music," Grant says. "And Keith Thomas gave me this track that he had written and said, 'I want some lyrics to this. ... I would just listen to that music, and it just made me so happy. I just remember one day I had toted the little baby carrier and set it on the kitchen counter. I sat down right in front of it, and Millie was 6 weeks old."

Millie, now 30, just announced the news of her first pregnancy, Grant says. And Grant herself is still in motion, with plans to resume a COVID-stopped tour beginning in August. "We've got 39 shows before December," she says. "And then more in December."

As far as what she has learned in her long career, Grant says, "One of them is just how important it is for us to cultivate a language of respect. Yes, because out of the fertile ground of respect, every good thing grows."
