21 Random Facts About Brooke


Spouse: Jarum

Number of Kids: 3

Favorite Foods: Banana Cake, or anything with BBQ sauce.

Favorite Pastimes: I love to bake. And I don’t want to hear about the health effects. The person who said “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” CLEARLY never had Banana Cake.

Quirky Loves: I love Home Depot. And Harry Potter. And Banana Cake (have I mentioned that?)

What You Wanted to be When You Were a Little Girl: When I was younger, I wanted to work at Pizza Hut, so I would know how to make pizza for my family. As I got older I started to become more ambitious, and wanted to perform on Broadway.

How You’d Fill a Day To Yourself: Oh boy. First off, I would need unlimited spending power. I think I would first hit up every craft, fabric, home decorating and kid clothing store I could think of. Then I would come home and watch cooking shows or thumb through the dozens of magazines/catalogs I have that go unread every month. And I would NOT feel guilty about it. Then I would order myself some delicious (and probably fattening) take out and have it delivered. The day would end with a bath, banana cake, and an early bedtime. Sigh.

A Current Dream: Opening a food truck with my sisters.

Something Others Might Be Surprised to Learn: I start listening to Christmas music in September. Oh, and I have to fall asleep reading something familiar (not something new, which would keep me awake). Thus, I have read Pride and Prejudice over 30 times.


Favorite book: This is so cliche, but the Harry Potter series, or Pride and Prejudice. Or the Anne of Green Gable series. I sound like a 12 year old.

One Person You’d Love to Meet: Princess Kate. I'm pretty sure we'd be best friends.

Mercy River Jobs: Anything technical, a lot of social media, wardrobe, sometimes I'm the big sister. I'm also the dad during travel season.

Favorite City: San Francisco or Seattle. I love being near the ocean but I'm not a huge beach person. Both places give you that coastal feeling without sand in your swimsuit. Great places to eat, shop, tons of things to do for cheap, scenery is beautiful...

Coveted Super Power: I would snap my fingers in the morning/night and I'd instantly be ready for the day/bed.

Least Favorite Song: Anything by Gloria Estefan. (Can I say that?)

Something You’d Never Do: Bungee Jumping or swim with sharks. Who are these people??

Afraid Of: Something happening to my kids. Also crickets and grasshoppers are disgusting.

Habit You Are Most Proud of Breaking: Uhhh…this question makes me think I need to be breaking some habits…

Favorite thing about Whitney: Whitney and I can talk for hours--literally--and I always walk away feeling like I needed another 4 hours. I treasure our conversations!

Favorite Thing About Soni: Soni is an incredible listener and there is NO judgment from her. She is one of the most open-minded people I know. I always think I need to be more like Soni.

Favorite Thing About Being in Mercy River: I love that I get to travel, perform and rehearse with my best friends. Even failing is a little easier with them next to me. And of course, we love LOVE meeting new people and hearing their stories.
