Michael W. Smith: The Story Behind the Song “Welcome Home”

November 5th, 2010

Radio Friend Phil – Over the past few month’s, I’ve been listening to several tracks off “Wonder,” the latest project by Michael W. Smith. One song in particular, “Welcome Home,” always catches my attention; it’s a tender and moving song that Smith was inspired to write after hearing the story of a family trying to make sense of their life, following the loss of a son. Click here to watch a mother and father tell their story of how they were “comforted with the truth of the Gospel and being present with the Lord.”  http://www.hearitfirst.com/home.aspx

    Thanks for sharing! What a touching testimony of beauty from ashes as the father & mother share their pain, hope and promise… Their testimony brings forth true emotion to Michael W. Smith’s song Welcome Home. Welcome Home is a beautiful follow up to M.W.S’s Song How to Say Goodbye… Would make for a good twin spin sometime!
