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 :  My name is Modesty (obviously!), and I am 20 years old (yes, I do realize most people think I'm about 12).  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, a bit of an OCD/perfectionist, and tend to over-think things.
