Daniel Brooker  A widower who has found love again / A husband to an inspiring woman / A father to five incredible children with grieving hearts / An encourager

Our paths crossed not because of the brokenness we had been through but because of what we chose to do with it. God placed a desire in our hearts early in our grief to help hurting people. For me, it was clear that I should help widowers. For @brittanypricebrooker, it was widows. But we never could have imagined that being obedient to help hurting people behind the scenes would be the way God would introduce us to each other, but He did!
Looking back, the biggest blessings in my life showed up when I surrendered my plans and started listening to God’s voice. That doesn’t mean that responding to God’s voice made things easy - grieving, healing, trusting, blending...they are all crazy hard. But the blessings that come from our obedience will be obvious and they will bring strength and resolve to carry out the purpose we are being called to.
So my challenge to you right now is this...take that step that you know you should take. Respond to God’s voice like you should have already done and watch Him reveal a purpose that is so much more than you could have ever imagined.

Tonight, I’m resting in the blessing of God’s timing. These amazing children who’s hearts have broken in ways they can’t describe yet, are exactly where they need to be right now...together. 📷: @kelseytice

She guards her heart and is cautious with who she lets in. But, when she finally does let her guard down, the love she shows is loyal and fierce. I’ve seen her develop and mature so much in this season and my heart is bursting with pride as I watch her embrace her new role as a big sister and helper with all things that include Nathan.
Happy Birthday Aubs...I’ll never stop loving you!!

Don’t just tell someone it’s going to be ok. Instead, stay by their side until they can say it.

I get to see a version of this everyday when I come home from work...I hope they feel as loved as I do! 📷: @christieannaapon

Her love is a compass that helps me find my way.

I remember being so upset with God when I realized my family wouldn’t look the way I wanted it to. Back then, I had it in my mind that adoption wasn’t the same and I let God know that. I’m not proud to admit that but it’s true. But through my struggles, I realized that the bigger issue was me not trusting God enough to let go of my plans and embrace His. Once I finally got to that place of trusting God with the areas of my heart that I guarded most, I experienced the beauty of watching God bring Ethan and Aubrey into my life through the gift of adoption. Meeting both of them for the first time will always be moments that I cherish and mark as life-changing. So honored that I get to be their Dad! #worldadoptionday

Our wedding day was life-changing for so many hearts and I’m so thankful for the way @hicks_photo captured it!! What an absolute honor to be married to @brittanypricebrooker and to begin this journey as the Brooker Bunch. [Link to full video in Bio]

Today we started our new tradition as a family of seven...picking apples and other things haha
Feels like we ran a marathon but I’m pretty sure this is going to be one of our favorite things to do together each year! What a day!

How we are feeling about @brittanypricebrooker’s recovery progress the last few days! Still not back to full strength but definitely heading in the right direction. Thank you for all the love and prayers! We’re blessed to be surrounded by the best!
