  1. Hello Jeanne,

    Thank you for sharing your gift of music! I love your song “The Holy Ghost” and am sharing a cd of some of my favorite music with my family and friends which includes a song one of my friends wrote called “Today, I am baptized” that I sang for my niece’s baptism. We wanted to add a third verse to her arrangement and loved the lyrics to the second verse from your song “The Holy Ghost.” We just wanted to let you know, and see if there is any copyright or royalties owed you for the use of the words from just the second verse? We look forward to your reply and look forward to hearing more of your music. Merry Christmas!

    • Hi Todd. Thank you for contacting Jeanne P Lawler Music. Sadly, Jeanne passed away in June of 2013. Jeanne loved to share her music with everyone, so I feel fairly confident that she would be happy to have you use the lyrics from “The Holy Ghost.” However, since it is currently in print through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, you’ll have to check with them. You can do that at COR-IntellectualProperty@ldschurch.org. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

  2. Hi there – I’m doing some research for the Church. Do you know the original composition dates of Jeanne’s primary songs (prior to their appearing in the song books)? Also, do you have any sketches or early versions – particularly of “The Holy Ghost,” “Family History, I Am Doing It,” and “When Jesus Christ Was Baptized”? Thanks.

    • Hi Brent, Thank you for your interest in Jeanne’s music. Unfortunately, Jeanne did not give me anything having to do with those particular songs since the Church owns them. However, I do have recordings of her playing them on the piano. Please let me know if you would like me to send you those and I would be happy to share them. Please include your email address.
