Peace, unity, love, hope, and healing are just a few of the themes woven throughout Gretchen Keskeys’ upcoming third studio album, "Words of Truth" (Creative Soul Records), available everywhere on November 22. The celebrated singer/songwriter is no stranger to sharing heartfelt gems of spiritually-centered encouragement throughout her extensive music ministry, but this latest album may very well be considered her most inspirational to date given the candid observations, unflinching honesty and all-around relatability.
"Words of Truth” comes along at a unique time in America, when people seem more divided than ever before. And Keskeys explores that division with this new collection of songs, with faith, God’s love and patriotism as common themes throughout. Songs like “Look to Jesus” offer hope, and "God Will See Us Through” intertwines "God Bless America” and a touch of the National Anthem.
It’s not surprising given her lifelong interest in current events and politics. In fact, prior to her music career, Keskeys graduated with a journalism degree, interned at a news station, and worked as an assignment editor, news writer, associate producer and talk radio producer as well an on-air talent.
“I started writing the songs on this album a year or more ago as I sought the Lord over the state of our country and its culture,” says Keskeys. “It can be troubling. Everyone is pushing for their own truth. But, I believe Jesus Christ is the truth and His words are words of truth. When we look to Him, we have a hope and a solid foundation to stand on in these uncertain times. Throughout history, God’s truth and love has prevailed.”
