Meet Brenda – Contributor for Engaged: Meditation

Hello Friends! My name is Brenda! I’ve been invited to share how meditation has impacted my story. But first I want to share a bit of an introduction. I am a single mom of an amazing 27 year old girl who is now my best friend. I was in church from the time I was born. My father was a wonderful pastor and dad. I remember praying to accept Jesus when I was 5 years old. I remember God’s presence, so close, as early as 10 years old. I felt called to grow in my understanding of God’s love for me which grew my love for Him. I went to a Christian college and married a worship pastor. We pastored a large church in Oregon for many years. Our marriage ended in divorce after 20 years and I served as a worship pastor on my own here in Branson for ten years. To say I have benefited greatly from the community found in the church would be an understatement.

I cherish the simple life. I have a hammock that hangs 9 months out of the year by a little creek in my backyard. You can find me there most mornings. I am currently teaching 7th grade science and I’ve started a pilot program that focuses on soul enrichment and social and emotional intelligence called Soul Fitness.

Meditation is a gift Jesus has given His Bride. We say yes to Jesus by willingly meditating on His Word. I know now, after many rough years, that saying yes to Jesus gets me all of the wonderful things…
