Hi there,

Just a note to say thank you for visiting my website!

But if you’d like to buy any of my CDs in their real shrink-wrapped form, all three of these sites have them available:

1. Catholic Music Network at
2. CDBaby at
3. at

Or just email me, and I can ship directly to you:

Thank you, and blessings to all!
Gretchen :)

Hi there!!

Wow, I have had to take some time off - like, 2 YEARS! - to take care of our teens… but now things are smoothing out, and I am back to recording and planning a concert schedule. It’s so nice to be choosing songs and really feeling how they touch my heart and what would make the most impact on the listener… Thank you for still staying in touch through your emails and other postings on the internet.

Concert for Lee in San Antonio, Texas, with Donna Lee this Friday, November 20th! Yayy!! Can’t wait. It will be a holy, happy night.

Been a Long Time…

Wow, just taking a moment to breathe… I’ve been gone, traveling in ministry so often this year. It’s all very good, but I’m home for a month and enjoying the break. Blessed with a family vacation last month! Sooooo great! The best hubby and kids ever!

Today’s 9/11… Remembering where we were that day, six years ago. Recalling and imagining what so many went through. Breaks my heart. So sad, so life-changing. I’ve been lifting up all those souls and their loved ones all day long. We will never forget!

“Pray, pray, pray. Pray for peace.” Thank you, Mary, for that reminder, that plea….

Going to see John Angotti in concert tonight. He’s so powerful as an artist. It can’t be an easy night to do this.

Love y’all,
gretchen :)

I am so impressed by the site, and the third CD. I can’t wait to get a copy of it.

My whole family sat around the other night and watched the ‘This is My Body’ video.

We were inspired!

My 5yr old and 3yr old boys were especially captivated when the childrens group sang.

You have an incredible voice and such a wonderful stage presence, but what we appreciated most about the video was the message it shouted out to the world that true love is about laying down your life for others as our Lord Jesus Christ did for us.

As a child of God, our bodies are not our own, we’ve been bought with a price - the blood of Jesus.

Your video demonstrated the healing power of our living Savior to those who surrender their lives to Him.

Thank you for taking such a bold stance for Christ, singing unto His glory, and blessing us with your life.

Because He lives,

Derek Taylor, D.C.


Just ordered your CD “Sign of Love” mainly for your song “Yes Lord” which I enjoyed on DANA’s “We are one Body” EWTN show. Also thought your performance with DANA on “This is my Body” was great, really meaningful.

my friend let’s just go on record and say it loud. It’s official. You’ve recorded in Nashville, TN! Yes, I said Nashville. This one has to be Grammy material. Whew, you motivate me… And you still looked wonderful after more than 12 hours of pouring your heart out in the studio.

Dear Gretchen,
It was a pleasure to hear your beautiful singing voice. I will buy more albums. I love your songs of Mary!
I had a experience sort of like yours where I felt the Blessed Mother standing near me and Jesus was there also.

Love your “Sing of Mary” album… you are a beautiful person with a beautiful voice. God bless!

Prayers for husband

My husband Mike had brain surgury May 27th for a brain tumor which mestatisized from a lung tumor which we did not know he had. He is recovering very well from surgery because of all the prayers that are being said for him. His cat scan did not show up any other cancer, but will be having a pet scan tomorrow to make sure. I was given “Hope for tomorrow” from a friend and it is so comforting. I ask prayer for Mike and our family. Mike is 50. We have 5 children (4 married) and we have 3 grandchildren with another due any time. His vision has been affected by the brain tumor, but other than that, he is feeling good. We will know in a few days what treatment plan he will have. God’s love has poured out on us from all our family and friends and people we don’t even know.
Thank You!
Mary Ann

 My Mom, Denise, has recently been diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. She has had 3 chemotherapy treatments so far, and will be having a CAT scan on May 26 to see how the lymphoma is responding. Please pray that the treatments will remove all traces of cancer from her body. She is experiencing severe back pain during this time (believed to be a result of the swollen lymph nodes along her spine). This pain and the medicine keeps her from getting restful nights of sleep. Please also pray that she is able to sleep and be refreshed so she can fight this terrible disease with the help of the Lord.
Thank you and God bless,
- Karen

Please pray for my 22y/o daughter. Two months ago she discovered that she had a tumor in the upper right maxilla and in the mouth. Please pray that it be benign. She is getting ready for surgery soon. It will be a rather large surgery because they will have to remove a part of the upper jaw and upper palate and I don’t know what else. Please pray that she have a successful surgery and no complication during the surgery or after-care.
Thank you
- Her mom

Please pray for the successful completion of my Sung Rosary project, that I will secure the necessary funds, find the funds that exist that I just can’t see, and that I will not try to complete it alone. Also, please pray that when I sing the prayers, that my vocals will be transparent, showing the many blessings I have garnered from singing this rosary to our Lord and Lady. Thank you.

Pray for Jay
Filed under: Prayers
Posted by: @ 11:38 pm

Please prayer for my nephew, Jay Shields. Jay will be going in for a
very dangerous surgery to remove a tumor from his spine on Wednesday
at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston. They will also be removing a
cancerous spot from his lung. (There are numerous spots but they are
only taking one now and will remove the rest in a few months.

Jay is 18. He has been battling osteosarcoma for over 3 years now. God
has blessed us with so many miracles through out this journey. The
biggest one being the fact that Jay is still here when the other 5
boys w/ the same disease who started chemo at the same time as him
have all passed away.

Thanks to all of you who sent Jay cards and CDs this past year. He
really did appreciate them. Jay is a beautiful piano player and has
also been writing a few songs and poems. He has struggled w/ his
beliefs throughout this process. However, in a recent visit w/ me he
seemed to be opening himself up to God and faith.

Please pray for Suzanne… “Right now.”
Filed under: Prayers
Posted by: @ 11:36 pm

This is from her husband. Suzanne is a fellow cantor at my church and a good friend. She’s going through stem cell replacement at UCLA:

Suzanne needs prayers – she needs them now. Right now. The last two weeks have been the toughest struggle for my beautiful wife and today it has become even rougher. Suzanne is in a lot of pain and the pain is progressing – today it hit her hands. This is what I need – please commit time for prayer right now. Ask God to relieve the pain in Suzanne’s hands and feet. Pray that the Holy Spirit surrounds each finger and passes to each cell to relieve her discomfort and begin healing these tissues. Pray that her stem cells grow rapidly to recreate her immune system. Most of all prayer for Suzanne’s spirit – her confidence is very low (she has endured day after day of this chronic pain) – pray that Suzanne feels the Hand of her God on her pressing, holding, and carrying her through this.

Next job… enlist your friends and family (forward this email on) – no need for them to know Zan. Tell them about this very cool lady and her struggle – put them on duty. Moms are good at that delegating (remember Mary at the feast of Cana – no one can deny a mom, even Christ). Ok… I know you have kept us in your hearts and before God so far… I just need a little more today. Right now. Thanks. We are blessed to be able to call up power beyond our imagination – God has surround us with you.

Went to EWTN, brought Amy, and all went well, praise God! The tapings went smoothly, Amy was so sweet and sang sweetly too…We felt the Spirit carry us through. Taped a Christmas special for 2007 and a Backstage for 2008. Such a holy place… holy ground… I just love it there. The people who work at EWTN full time are always so nice, and many have been there for 18, 20, even 25 years! Many other singers there too this week - Lynn Geyer, Sharmane Adams, Celeste Zupponni, Kara Klein, Sean Clive, Susannah, Marty Rotella… A great few days, and blessed with safety in travel. Did some interviews for Grapevine too, so hopefully those will be available for download in a week or so. Thank you, God, for the opportunity to minister to Your people on such a broad scale as global Catholic television! I pray lives are touched and hearts are healed!

Wow! Went to Adoration, and again, “guidance galore!” Thanks be to God, I think my set lists are pretty much set! It’s not always easy, but things are soooo much better after we just “let go and let God.” God is so good…

Praying for you all…

New Blog!
Filed under: General
Posted by: @ 11:24 pm

Wow, this is great! A new way to keep in touch on a frequent basis. I do plan to update very often, so come on back! My plan is to note what goes on inside this ministry… It’s all so varied, but it’s hours and hours every day, and I kind of want to look at that…

For instance, I was gone all last week at at booksellers convention, where the stores were listening and ordering CDs… Did a little interview on EWTN Radio’s Catholic Jukebox… Did a podcast report of the convention for Grapevine Magazine… Came home and had my website redone (Thanks, Gary!), and am now trying desperately to figure out what to sing next month - taping TWO Backstage programs at EWTN! Very exciting, and am bringing Amy to sing too… But they’re wanting a set list, and it just hasn’t come to me yet…

So, that’s the goal for tomorrow. Praying for answers…
g. :)
