Smith recorded Michael Smith (1986) and Love Stories (1987. Both albums have been reissued as a single CD, which is among Acoustic Guitar's list of essential singer-songwriter albums. Hills recorded her own album of Smith songs called October Child (1993). In the winter of 1987, Claudia Schmidt introduced Smith to theatrical director Frank Galati. It was Galati who asked Smith to write the music for Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. He recorded his third album for Flying Fish, Time (1994), and recorded a duet album with Hills called Paradise Lost and Found (1999). He has also continued to write music for theatre, including for a Colorado Children's Theatre production of The Snow Queen. Most notably though, in 1993 Chicago's Victory Gardens Theatre premiered his autobiographical play Michael, Margaret, Pat and Kate.

Michael W. Smith wrote 26 new songs for his 1998 release Live The Life, but only used 14 of them (12 on the actual album and two more as B-sides to the two lead singles). So does a megastar Christian musician do with the other 12? Well, naturally, include them on his next release! Released less than a year after Live The Life, This Is Your Time has a distinctly different sound from his previous album despite all the songs being written at the same time Celtic. And he even has a funky and otherwise very whimsical track in "I'm Gone. Smith's instrumental reprise of "This Is Your Time" is as gorgeous as any instrumental he has ever written. It surprised me how much I liked this album, considering that this was basically an album full of the rejects of Live The Life. But it does not feel like that at all.
