Delirious & Meet Mrs. Smith * press release *


For seventeen years, Martin Smith held the microphone for Delirious?—the mega-selling, Dove Award-winning, Grammy-nominated band that helped bring the modern worship movement into existence. Martin sang before popes and princes, cheered a generation of history makers into action, and saw his life change in ways he could never have imagined.

Yet Martin still wrestled with questions every Christian faces: How do I balance my ministry with my family? How do I know what God is leading me to do? Can I hold on to my first love for God while still holding onto the wisdom gained over years?

Martin reflects on everything from the craft of leading worship to the challenges of parenthood to how to find a place of compassion in our postmodern culture. Along the way, he challenges us to ask ourselves: Are we going to be spectators—or agents of change? Are we going to read history—or make it happen? Always personal and often surprising, Martin’s story will spur you to embrace the action God wants you to take.

Anna and Martin Smith live a life of deep reflection, artistic exploration, and intense compassion—in the middle of kids, craziness, and all the questions we all have about who we are and why we are here.

Now, for the first time, Anna chronicles her life as wife of the lead singer of Delirious?, the history-making band that launched the modern-day worship movement. A feast of behind-the-scenes insights about juggling family life alongside world tours, this book is also a profound look at one family’s quest to foster a rich spiritual life and care for others while living well in a consumption-driven world.

Anna reminds us that God never wants us to settle for less—in life, as a parent, or in our career—but calls us to live and work with all our soul, even when life gets messy. Take Anna’s words to heart and get ready to surprise the world with your gifts, your passion, and your desire to do great things for God.
