|Rich Mullins chronology|
Mullins originally considered naming the album "Songs" to draw ironic contrast from the unusually long titles of his previous albums. In a 1995 radio special, Mullins commented, "It's a real in-house kind of record. We didn't hire background singers; we had the wives of the guys sing for backgrounds...It was more of a family kind of project, which for me was a real blast."
The artwork on the album cover was produced by Jimmy Abegg, a member of Mullins' band.
