About Two Sisters

Hey Everybody!

Two Sisters' Southern Gospel Gazette is run by two sisters - Modesty and Mercy.  We've pretty much been listening to southern gospel music for as long as we can remember, and in appreciation of all the artists and those in the industry that keep it alive we started Two Sisters' Southern Gospel Gazette to share our love of it with others.
Here are links to where you can keep up with us on social media

About Modesty :  We were raised listening to SGM and attending concerts, and we've never stopped.  One of my many favorite songs that I've taken as life-goal is, "When the World Looks at Me", written by Roger Bennett-- as the songs says, "I want the world to see Jesus when they look at me".  
I have two and a half years of TaeKwonDo training, a year of Jiu-Jitsu, and recently joined another TaeKwonDo class in order to continue and reach Black Belt.  I love photography and have a photography business that includes a lot of SGM - Memories by Modesty.  I like music, reading, cooking + baking, candles, blogging, traveling, spending time with family and friends.  Quiet, sometimes sarcastic (Me?!?  Never!  Lol), love a good joke, and a bit of an OCD/perfectionist.

About Mercy :  

I'm an ambivert meaning I'm a bit of an extrovert and an introvert at the same time, yeah, you try figuring that out too :).
I love interior decorating, old movies, scrapbooking, Hallmarks, reading, singing, going to concerts and spending time with family & friends.  
Many people have asked us why we started this site and it's kind of funny. It actually started as a homeschool project.  It was supposed to be this one time thing where I interviewed a couple SG artists at NQC and then it kind of just continued... I feel so blessed to be able to do it - to share interviews with you all, to review cds from what I believe are some of the best artists in the world and lastly to share more with you all about the greatest genre of music.  Now, I'm not saying I don't like hymns or listen to other genres, because I do but southern Gospel Music touches people and helps people in their Christian walk in ways I can't explain.
