Trivia[edit]

  • "I'll Be Believing" was the only song on the album that was a programmed track, and John Mays, former A&R executive at Word Records thought it would be best if it were buried in the album. Oddly enough, it was the girls' first single, and it went #1. When the song was later performed live in 1996 (with 4 Him's band on The Message about Life, Love, and Other Mysteries tour), an entirely new sequence was designed by Michael Hodge and Mark Childers, both of whom were on the band of 4 Him. Hodge appears in Point of Grace's video for a later song, Circle of Friends, which was recorded on that tour.
  • They were not going to cut "Faith, Hope & Love" because they weren't sure if the R&B sound would work for them.
  • The vocals on "Faith, Hope & Love" were arranged by Mervyn Warren, formerly of the group Take 6.
  • The choir on "No More Pain" was made up of many of Point of Grace's new industry friends, as well as Denise's husband, Stu.
  • When the album was re-released in 2003 in commemoration of the group's release "24", a different cover was issued.
  • Since Heather's departure from the group in 2008, the song "I'll Be Believing" has been performed as part of a medley with "You Are The Answer."
