Hey, I’m Brooke!

I’m so glad you’re here! Now that you’ve found your way to my little corner of the internet, I should catch you up to speed. Young & Joyful is my side-hustle-slash-passion-project, run from my college dorm room and various coffee shops.

I’m a California college student and aspiring writer, speaker, & musician who’s kinda clueless about what she’s doing with her life (which is one reason I need Jesus). I love to read, write, travel, take pictures, write & play music, drink good coffee, hang out with cute dogs, watch sunsets, redecorate, shop for shoes — the list goes on and on.

I believe God gave me a gift for writing and a passion for using that gift to reach out to others, so I’m sharing my own experiences here on Y&J in hopes that you might be able to relate, to learn, feel like you have a friend to relate to in the craziness of life. I’m young, I’m uncertain, and I don’t know what’s in store for me, but I rest assured that He does; therefore, I’m young and joyful.

How could I not be when I know how cool my God is?
