Back in the early eighties, I played a song called "I’m Born Again" when I was a DJ at a station in Boise, Idaho. That song was off an album from Glenn Garrett. Over the years, Glenn has continued to make music celebrating his relationship with Jesus and how being born again changes our lives and makes a difference in our world. Chatting with Glenn reveals a gentle soul who is madly in love with his Savior and wants everyone to know it! Glenn talks about how he can hear his Good God in Heaven speak.
