June 18, 2020

Matt Hammitt had what looked like the perfect Christian life. As the lead singer of the successful Christian rock band Sanctus Real and with a wife and kids at home, it seemed like he had found his purpose in life. But just as Sanctus Real’s biggest hit song was rocketing up the charts, Matt and his wife Sarah got news that their unborn son had a rare, life-threatening heart defect. As their young son went through surgeries and treatments, Matt began to feel like God was calling him away from his thriving career in music to live out a greater calling as a husband and father. Matt sits down with Davey to share his story of his son’s medical struggles, walking away from the band, and finding a new calling he never would have expected.
