A Delirious Wife

Don’t Settle for Less
One Family’s Quest to Foster a Rich
Spiritual Life in a Consumer-Driven World

Are you tired of just feeling bogged down by your daily life? Do you wonder if your life will have an impact on your family or, even yet, the world? Come join Anna Smith as she encourages you to live a life of abandoned love for Christ.

Meet Mrs. Smith is Anna Smith’s life story—the story of how God used her, alongside her husband Martin, to raise a family, live a wild life for God, launch the worldwide phenomenon that is Delirious?, and start a ministry to orphans around the world. With a good dose of spiritual insight, parenting advice, and wry humor, Anna shares the hard lessons she’s learned. She also shares stories from behind some of Delirious?’s most popular songs while encouraging readers with her warm authentic voice.

For fans of Delirious?, the history-making band that launched the modern-day worship movement, Meet Mrs. Smith will be a feast of behind-the-scenes stories and insights. This book is both the autobiography of Anna Smith and a kind of parallel chronicle of the launching and life of the band itself. Smith writes about the ups and downs of her personal adventure alongside her husband Martin and shares insight and encouragement from the trenches of motherhood. She even includes her invaluable “Ten Parenting Survival Tips.”

Anna Smith and her husband’s journey with God is both one of deep reflection, artistic exploration, and intense compassion for people and orphans in poverty around the world. This book is about not settling for just getting the job done—in life, as a parent, or in our career—but doing everything in the best way possible. It’s about embracing the here and now and enjoying the good, the bad, and the downright messy that life throws your way!

Meet Mrs. Smith is a profound look at one family’s quest to foster a rich spiritual life. How can we care for others while living well in a consumption-driven world? Smith reminds us that God never wants us to settle for less, but calls us to live and work with all our soul, even when life gets messy. Take Smith’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.
