- Author: Anne Wilson
In My Jesus, Anne Wilson recounts her remarkable journey through the loss of her brother and the surprising moment she heard God's voice calling her to do the unexpected, to sing and create music that could draw people to Him, which then launched her #1 hit song, My Jesus.
Growing up in Kentucky, Anne along with her two older siblings, Jacob and Elizabeth, were surrounded by a faithful community and had ample opportunities to play, learn, and create under the loving care of their parents. Big brother Jacob was adored for his kindness, charm, and boundless energy. When tragedy struck, and Jacob died in a car wreck, the family's grief was all-consuming.
At the funeral, Anne chose to honor her brother by singing in public for the first time. She selected the song What a Beautiful Name, which had lyrics that evoked the powerful name of Jesus. It was then that she heard God's voice calling her to create music that would glorify Him and share Him with others.
Through the fresh, young voice of Anne Wilson, My Jesus weaves together Anne's personal story, keen insights about her transition into the music industry, and an inspiring look at the power of faith. With touching anecdotes about her family and a realistic depiction of learning to trust God through the pain of grief, Anne describes her relationship with Jesus in the poignant, faith-building way that has moved people worldwide through her number-one song.
