Hi! I am Brooke Maratta!
I have a tough time summarizing myself. To be honest I have rewritten this “about” section a bajillion of times. I have tried writing an eloquent description of myself, highlighting good qualities to illustrate confidence, while mentioning bad qualities to remain humble. I also feel compelled to tell you that I am extremely outgoing, loud, and energetic, but I am also tender-hearted and sensitive!
My site name and social media handles are all named “bbronkie” (bee-bron-key), and that may odd… it is…you’re not wrong haha! When I was younger, I babysat these two girls from Peru. At the time, they couldn’t pronounce “Brookie” so they called me “bronkie”. When I first got an Instagram, I tried to make my handle “bronkie”, but it was taken. So I added another “b” because I am wicked clever!!
I started this blog because I absolutely love encouraging people. I love being vulnerable and sharing what God has done in my life, Writing allows me to venture into the wilderness of God, to learn from Him, and reflect on His faithfulness. It is a form of healing, learning, and sharing! I love God and I love others, so why not write to you and Him?
As a little girl, I feared the dark, as a teenager I feared rejection, and as a young adult I fear the unknown. As I grow in Christ, I want to break those chains and cling onto Him. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
