I am always puzzled about how to introduce myself so I will do it quite simply.
Hi. :) My name is Brandy and I am a sold-out Jesus freak. I am a single mom to an amazing little boy. I work full time at a career I love for two amazing bosses that support me in all that I do, both professionally and personally.
Before I begin, allow me to explain the name of my blog by using the definition of each word. (Definitions brought to you by Dictionary.com)
1. of or pertaining to present and recent time; not ancient or remote: modern city life.
2. characteristic of present and recent time; contemporary; not antiquated or obsolete: modern viewpoints.
The Bible is the best seller of all time. According to Bibleresources.com, the Bible has been translated into 2,018 languages with countless more partial translations. The Bible never goes out of fashion like a dress does, it does not become obsolete because someone else has come out with another book that may top it (though MANY have tried), and it holds the esteem of being the first book ever printed on the "modern" printing press in 1454 A.D.
1. a picture or decoration made of small, usually colored pieces of inlaid stone, glass, etc.
It can be said that a human being is made up of his or her experiences. If you were to ask me who I was as a person, I would say that I am many things: A Christian, a mom, an employee, a manager, a sister, an aunt, a volunteer, a creative individual, a sand volleyball fanatic, someone who likes to make a joyful noise (who cannot carry a tune in a bucket). I have hurts and struggles and joys. I am who I am because of the gifts God has imparted to me and the experiences I have had in the last 31 years.
1. a female parent.
Well, that is kind of self explanatory. I am a mom. I gave birth to my son 5 years ago and it was the second most awe inspiring moment I have lived through. The first is the day I accepted God as my Lord and Savior. Some people may disagree with me, but I am okay with that. God is the reason for who I am and what I have. My son changed my life forever, but God changed my life first.
This is my journey. I welcome your input/comments/suggestions and I look forward to getting to know you as you get to know me.
