The former lead singer of Christian music sensation Sanctus Real comes clean about the tension between life on the road and life at home.
“Father, lead me, ’cause I can’t do this alone.”
—“Lead Me” by Sanctus Real
Matt Hammitt had performed his hit song, “Lead Me,” almost a thousand times. And every time he sang, the lyrics echoed the voices of his own family. His marriage was strained. His kids were growing up without him. Matt’s good intentions could no longer sustain his family; he needed to be a man of action. Yet even as he told his Sanctus Real bandmates that he was leaving the band to invest in his family, he wondered: Was it really possible to be present at home and still provide financially too?
Matt identifies the tension many men experience when trying to balance work and home life. With bracing honesty, vulnerable storytelling, and practical application, Matt challenges you to be faithful both to God’s vocational call and to His call to lead your family well.
Discover the extraordinary joy of actively and intentionally pursuing your wife and children. Matt reminds us that it’s messy. It’s difficult. And it’s the most rewarding thing you can do, beyond following Christ.
Matt Hammitt is a singer, songwriter, and speaker. He was the lead singer for the band Sanctus Real from 1996-2016.
