For the Wine-O’s

For the Wine-O’s

For the last 5 years or so, I’ve been bartending. More recently, I have been bartending weddings (shoutout to Executive Catering… also my first business sponsor for my podcast). One thing that is easy to spot is when people are in good spirits and their drink choice...

The Great Conjunction

The Great Conjunction

Outer space has always excited me. There is so much wonder out there. I have always loved things that are bigger than me. Miraculous stories, big dreams that scare me, movies with huge plot twists and unexpected-beautiful endings, and of course: outer space. This year...

The Hard Things

The Hard Things

It’s been a hot second since I have written a blog, but I have been reminded of a reoccurring lesson in my life. I was on a 16-mile run about a month ago, and I kept hearing The Lord say to me “keep doing the hard things Brookie”. Do them even when you can’t see the...

Self Talk

Have you ever heard of an ear-worm? An ear-worm (or a brain worm) is when a song is stuck in your head and you can’t get rid of it. This could be an entire song or part of a song that continues to repeat over and over. Like “Baby Shark”. Anyways, the only way to...
