God has always played a huge roll in my life. I don’t know where I’d be without Him. In order for you to truly understand me, I think it’s important to be transparent with my life and my testimony.
Growing up I was always living to please others: my parents, my friends, my teachers… You get it. I had always participated in church organizations and always reached out to others about my faith, but I didn’t fully understand what I was living for until my senior year in high school. I going through a rough time in my life and didn’t have anyone to lean on except God. I was starting to understand the true meaning of having faith and relying on God. I started to really shine in God’s light and really understand my place with my faith.
You may be saying “Woah, Brooke! That’s awesome, now you have such a perfect life!”
Ever since my high school life, I’ve been understanding the road to a mature relationship with God and understanding how to nurture it with selflessness. My life has been FULL of mistakes. But I’m so grateful for them! I can’t even begin to explain to how grateful I am for the idea that I can learn from myself. In college I made so many mistakes my first year. I signed up for everything and completely cut off my relationship with God by not giving Him time to be present in my life. I really started to see myself exhausted, over-booked, and unhappy. During the summer before my sophomore year, I really started to relax and analyze what went wrong. Then poof! I realized that I wasn’t resting in God and that I wasn’t relying on Him.
I could go on and on about what a beautiful mess my life is. If you want to hear more shoot me an email! That little icon at the bottom of the page that looks like an envelope? That’s where to contact me!
