"For Someone Wired to Please"

Say what you will about Amy Grant, but she was one of the first contemporary Christian artists and my preference for that kind of music is largely based on listening to her as a teenager (and Michael W. Smith).  I can still go back to her early songs and just really reflect on points in my life where her music and life impacted me greatly.

Right now, she's got a new song out on the radio and once again, it matches me in this season of life.  It's a great reminder for us as mamas (and as wives, daughters, sisters and friends).  I heard that Amy wrote this song as a reminder for herself.  Like her, I am definitely wired to please and I have to constantly remind myself of the theme in this song and that is that grace is given freely -- we cannot earn it.

Here's a video of Don't Try So Hard by Amy Grant for you...

I hope you enjoy it.

  1. I love that song, too. I was going to ask if you had heard it, because I know it would be a good reminder for you.

    Thank you!
