Kaylee Brooks 🌻  "YES Lord walking in the way of your TRUTH. we wait EAGERLY for you. for YOUR name and renown are the DESIRE of our souls" isaiah 26:8

SUNDAY + ROYALS. only thing that would make it better is a royals W I N !
today was my last day with my 5th graders! kind of emotional about them leaving me. we have grown and learned so much together the past two years! they are such leaders, they are funny and they have such loving, servant hearts. going to miss them! also thankful for these leaders who serve every week!

Brooks family motto πŸ•

JOY ✨ it's the little things like watching one of my 5th graders get baptized, doing this handshake with sania every sunday (yeah i'm still a little rusty on it πŸ˜…), dancing and singing on stage to Jesus with FREEDOM like a little kid, hugs from my small group girls, and hearing them tell me how they share Jesus so boldly in their schools. these kids fill me with joy with how much they know and love Jesus at such a young age. THIS IS THE CHURCH RIGHT HERE! what a joy to watch them grow over the past 2 years.

in case no one has told you today: YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE. you're not the only one who failed the test, got declined to that school or feels uncertain. you're not the only one who feels left out or misunderstood. you are not the only one who is doubtful or fearful. you are not the only one who has dreams for the future that have yet to come true. you are not the only one wondering why that didn't work out or this isn't working. you are not the only one who feels like crying. you are not the only one who has put all their heart into something that failed. you are not the only one who feels like the only one. stop pretending like you are ok. social media makes it easy to do that. but i think if we were all really honest about how we are hurting and broken we wouldn't all feel like the only one. whoever you are today, i'm excited to see what you make of that hurt you are facing. maybe you can start by finding someone else who is hurting and say "me too." people relate more to brokenness than perfection. #justsayin

"WHERE YOU LEAD I WILL FOLLOW ANYWHERE" 1) i love this picture because we were on the beach in a coffee shop (basically the best combination ever) and also because i was with my mom! thanks for being the lorelai to my rory. 2) i don't think anyone will ever truly understand how much she has gone through over the past few years and how much FAITH + JOY she continues to have amazes me. 3) thanks for making me laugh until i cry (and yes even making me laugh at myself at times) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA BROOKS. YOU ARE SO LOVED ✨

HELLO, 20 πŸ‘‹πŸΌ i can't wait to see what you have in store! i also can't believe that i've lived that long on planet earth. 🌎 like how in the world is that possible? it's got me thinking a lot about how there has never been a time in my whole 20 years of life that i haven't known Jesus (that alone blows my mind). and to think this whole time He has remained the One faithful, Truest, time-tested, unshakeable foundation in my life all these years makes me wanna sing. through cancer, through my own brokenness and sin, through disappointments, through difficult decisions and late night cram sessions "faithful You are faithful forever You will be". He has given me a firm place to stand and a comfort in hardship and he has created beauty from ashes. so heck yes i am going to trust Him with the next 20 because He has kept all His promises to me in the last 20 and He's not about to stop. so i'm ready for you 20's πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ let this be the year of "consuming more life" (i heard that on a podcast by @dallasclayton the other day so i'm adopting it!) so i'm taking a little break from consuming social media to do more of that life stuff. THANKS FOR ALL THE BDAY WISHES FRIENDS. love you all.

FRANK & SYD & FAYETTEVILLE & SUNRISES & TACOS & GOD'S CREATION & HUMMING & HIKING & LAUGHTER & FRIENDSHIP are some of the SWEETEST things in life! 😌

can i be honest and just say some days i am a real mess. i drive over curbs and get flat tires. and then i cry and rant all my frustrations to my dad who is TRYING to help me. some days i sleep in WAYYY past my alarm (ok like every day). other days i forget to say "happy birthday" before saying "goodbye." in all these things, i am thankful for a dad who extends so much G R A C E (even when i don't give myself enough grace) and loves our family so well. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! (i love you even when you are a little dorky and have old man glasses πŸ€“πŸ˜‰)

the start of something new...

cheering for the falcons mostly because i miss this city. #ATL

who needs to watch the bachelor when you get to watch a relationship like this through youtube and insta (minus the drama and 25 other girls)? and their engagement last night was like 10x more exciting to than any season finale!πŸ™†πŸΌπŸ’žπŸ’πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ also, thanks for taking time to talk for a few minutes @ passion and enduring my painful awkwardness / shaky hands (that's why cole is holding the camera πŸ˜…) but also got me thinking why we get so nervous around people who are "well-known" i'm guilty of putting people on pedestals they were never meant to be on even though they're just ordinary people who have been blessed with a large platform to share their love for Jesus and be total GOOFS while doing it. so thanks for just being a ordinary, Jesus-following, crazy, role model of a family. AND CONGRATS!!!!
