Michael W. Smith
"There's a famous quote from a great movie - Chariots of Fire –that I could never forget, because it truly resonated in my heart," he says. "The film's hero Eric Liddell says of his relationship with God, 'When I run I feel His pleasure.' And when I play the piano I feel God's pleasure; it's just what I'm made to do. We all have gifts, and we all have our story, and this is just my gift."
Whether sharing the gospel on foreign soil or mentoring artists that seek his counsel on balancing family and music, Michael has long had a passion for serving God and serving others. It's a fire that continues to burn brightly with no sign of abating. "I don't see retirement anywhere in the Bible," he says with a grin. "It's a calling. I love to write. I love to play. It's still the most beautiful place."
