Kristyn and Keith Getty at home

Hymnwriter Keith Getty has spent 20 years at the top of his game along with singer wife Kristyn. But for now, the Northern Ireland-born couple, who are usually based in America, have taken a step back from their fast-paced lives.

"We've been at home now for months, and we're really loving the experience," says Keith (46). "We have a home in the countryside near the north coast and we're in touching distance to all the beaches, so it's really been incredible. We hit a different beach most days, and the kids are really enjoying the experience."

Along with daughters Eliza (9), Charlotte (6), Gracie, (5) and two-year-old Tali, the musicians made the decision to relocate to their native Northern Ireland for a break back in September - and just recently decided to extend their stay until the summer.
