Thank You Jesus
Greta was born in Fort Kent and raised in Frenchville, Maine. The fourth of eight children, she was singing as soon as she knew what the word 'sing' meant . . . and probably before that. Her mother taught her to play a few piano notes when she was five, but her hands were so small, she could barely play a triad! She was taught three guitar chords (D, A, & G) when she was twelve, and started writing songs around the same time. In 1987, Greta wrote her first song for the Lord: 'I Will Sing for You.' In 1988, she recorded a demo tape with three songs that she decided to sell as a fundraiser to bring the 'Youth to Mary'--to Medjugorje. After the war broke out in Yugoslavia, she was no longer able to pursue that. In 2001, she recorded a single for one of her friends that had lost her daughter in a fatal car crash. In the fall of 2007, she hired Jamie Thibeault at Cellar Door Recording Studio in Madawaska to combine the cassette and the CD. When he finished that project, he asked Greta when she was going to come back into the studio. She fought the idea until June, when God gifted her with 'Be My Friend,' and she now knows that Jamie's suggestion was a nudge from the Holy Spirit. In September, she asked the Lord to give her another song if he wanted her to go into the studio. Two days later, she received 'Adoration.' 'Surrender' and 'Gifts' followed soon after. Greta considers the CD a miracle because she is the mother of eleven children, and because she would not have been able to complete the CD without the generosity of friends. Thank you, Jesus.
