“I want to be transparent in my brokenness and be an example of God’s beautiful redemption. I want my worship to reflect what God has done in my life.” – Brooke
Brooke is not only gifted musically, but she has an incredible eye behind the camera. She has used her gift of photography to capture incredible moments at GH, especially with our kiddos!
She and her family have been members of GH for 2 years and we are so grateful to have her be a part of our team.
Read a little bit of Brooke’s background of how music has always been a part of her life, why she worships and how she chooses to serve to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
I was basically born into music. My dad is a jazz professor and my mom is the staff piano accompanist at the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith. They were both music ministers in church.
I played piano from a very young age and when I was 12, I started playing bass. Growing up, we were the modern-day Partridge family. My dad played the saxophone, my mom played piano, my brother played the drums, and I played bass. Every once in awhile, my baby sister would join us with her maracas. 😊 We played for events all the time and we also played in church.
I led worship for the youth group and played bass on the platform. In college, I played with the University jazz band. It has been about 10 years since I have been involved in music ministry at a church. I am very excited to be involved again and using my gift to glorify God and shining His light as I serve.
My favorite way to spend time with God is serving others with my family (husband, Paul, of 10 years, and 4-year-old son, Elijah). I believe that Jesus gave us a perfect example of His love in the way He loved the unlovable and served the least of these. Our goal as a family is to model the love of Christ to others. I pray that our son (and future children) grows to know the perfect, unfailing love of the Father and that he has a heart to serve others.
I want to leave you with one of my favorite scriptures
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.” – 1 Peter 4:8
