Still Speaking after 31 Years in Heaven

Share Your Memories of Keith Green



Keith Green FB Share Your Memo
We want to give everyone an opportunity to share their memories of how Jesus used Keith to impact their life.  And gather all the stories in one place for everyone to enjoy. 

Keith sure impacted my life.  After Jesus, he was my biggest influence.  Keith modeled giving everything to Jesus, not wanting celebrity, caring for the poor, taking people off the streets, and reaching into prisons.  We did that from the start together. 

I would love to know what your story is.  How did Keith impact your life?  Were you at a concert?  Was it through the music?  Are you in ministry?  On the mission field? 

How did Keith impact you, and what are you doing now that you think you might not be doing — if not for his influence? 

Please share your story in the comment section below.
 
I’ll start!

Who can't remember the first time they heard the words - "You prefer the light from your TV, you love the world but you're avoiding me!" My college roommate and I waited with anticipation for every new Keith Green album. My girlfriend and I saw him with a baby grand at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, in 1977. We married in 1978 and went on the road with a band called Maskil. Keith always challenged me to reach as a songwriter. To tell the truth. To not be afraid to "say it" in a song when appropriate. And yet, Keith, also taught me not to perform - but to worship. I will always be thankful for his influence in my life - his music, his word smithing, his heart. I don't exactly know what he's been up to in heaven - but I hope they have a baby grand up there!

Keith Green's influence on my life and my walk with God is HUGE!! I became a Christian and my life began to unravel. My husband began cheating and as time went on we separated. I was terrified as I had 3 small children. I heard Keith at Melodyland and promptly bought ALL of his albums. A few months later he went home to be with the Lord. Without Keith's music, I would have NEVER gotten through those lonely days alone. Every single night, I put on his music which would usher in the presence of the Lord and I would just BASK in the Lords presence for HOURS and learned of His love!! Even through the devastation of losing a mighty servant, Melody's strength of moving on also gave me the courage to move on also!! Thank you Melody and Keith for teaching me the true strength, love and presence of the Lord. My children are successful thriving adults with families of their own now. I don't think our life would have been as successful if I didn't have your influence in those early days!!

I forgot to add, that the lullaby I sang for my children is Lord, You're Beautiful.... And I am STILL singing it today for my grand babies!! My children also cherish his music as they were raised on it. Thank you Melody for keeping the anointing and the ministry alive!!

As a new Christian in 1983, I was in the in Navy and a friend on the boat handed me a Keith Green CD. It so impacted my live as well as my wife's life in real time. Joanne actually wrote to Melody as we soon found out that Keith and the children were gone. From that point on we interacted with LDM. Used their tracks as teaching materials as well as gave them away, and lastly, actually went door to door in the 80s for AAA as well. I have introduced Keith to so many of my friends over the years that Keith's earthly ministry continues even today. Thanks Melody for you ministry and for allowing Keith Legacy to continue through the generations!

I started listening to Keith and Melody's music shortly after I was saved on July 28th, 1977. It has challenged me to accept "no compromise" and to keep earnestly seeking the Lord and being available for what He wants me to do. I remember the day, five years after I was saved, when Keith, his friend and the children went to heaven. It was such a shock, and I felt so badly for Melody. But I will always cherish the foundational challenges of his music.

As a new believer in the early 70's, I got introduced to Keith Green's music through the son of a friend of mine. I immediately was struck with Keith's ability to combine scripture along with his personal composition of music. I bought every album I could! I have since updated my collection of Keith's music to CD's. My four daughters grew up with Keith and to this day this listen to him and pass Keith's music onto others who haven't met him. I deeply appreciate all that you do Melody! You are a shining light to the body of Christ! God bless you and this ministry!

Loved and still love his music. Did home birth with my first child Heidi and listened to his music during 24 hours of labor. Found the messages of his songs always challenging and was so sad the day we lost him. Remember where I was and what I was doing.

I have been a church drummer since I was 14 now 54. I always like to do different things ( and be different ) But when I first heard Keith on the piano I loved his style. Loved the way he arranged stuff wow !! I miss you Keith!

I first was introduced to Keith's music and testimony by a dear friend. The first album (in those days) I purchased was "So You Want to go Back to Egypt" and it was life changing. I immediately subscribed to the Last Days Newsletter and purchased several of the tracts that were much more than tracts. Each one a unique inspiration. Among those the deeply touched my heart were "Who Cares" and "Breaking Up the Fallow Ground". I still have a copy of the book "The Last Days Collection" that contains so many of them. I was in Africa (Kenya) on the mission field on July 28, 1982 when we received the news of the plane crash. We were returning to Nairobi from the Kenyan highlands and the Great Rift Valley and my heart sank - but I knew that Keith and these precious babies had been immediately translated into the arms of Jesus - the bosom of Abraham. God bless you, Melody, for continuing this great work and God bless you and your precious family as you continue to be the hands and feet of our Savior.

The music piece about The Prodigal Son made me see God's love, and brought me to Him when I was 16. Today at age 56, I still cry when I hear it. I am still amazed at God's love, and how beautifully it was captured in this song. Thank You LORD for Keith.
