Gretchen Keskeys is a singer-songwriter, worship leader, speaker, wife and mom. Her life and mind was completely transformed by Jesus Christ as a young adult and she loves to share all He has done through word and song.
Her walk with Jesus Christ began in college. Early in her adult life, she was paralyzed by fear, insecurity, depression and was spiraling down. At a very low point, her mother knew she needed more help than any person could give. She read Matthew 11:28-30 to Gretchen, “Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” This spoke deep into her heart. For so long, Gretchen had felt no one could understand the torment and struggle she was in. But, for the first time in so long, she had hope. She had to know Jesus and that is where her journey began.
Gretchen had loved singing since her teen years. Both parents loved music and played the piano beautifully and she loved to sing along. But outside the home, Gretchen had a fear of singing. Her voice would shut down. Gretchen’s husband, Randy, often heard her sing at home and encouraged her to use her voice and later to play the piano. In 2008, Gretchen was talking to God: “You have given me these abilities, I want to use them for Your glory, but You will have to help me.” And help her He did!
Gretchen’s testimony is “He answered that prayer and I am so amazed and thankful for what God has done! I am no longer afraid! I can sing! He has opened doors I could never have imagined. He has taken my love of writing and music and has given me the ability to write dozens of songs. All coming from this beautiful and amazing journey I have had with Him”.
All of this led to the release of her first album “Walking in the Spirit” on Creative Soul Records. Each song has come from a place of needing and seeking the Lord, spending time in His Word, trusting Him and living the abundant and victorious life only Christ gives. Gretchen loves to sing praises to God and bring others into that worship and during that, shows her love for Jesus Christ!
