Name: Amy Brooks
Position: Associate Area Director -- Central High School Young Life Leader/team leader
What would be the title of your autobiography?
I have been following Jesus for 10 years. Time after time people doubt His power and question His plan. I fall into that category, but I have found nothing more promising from my Lord and savior than His promise of a life lived to the full. The past 3 years of my life have been the most challenging and trivial years I have yet to experience. He gives me hope everyday that even though life is hard, I will be okay.
Lake, River or Ocean?
Ocean - more so the beach. Open water is terrifying to me!
What is one goal you wish to accomplish in your lifetime?
Sign language interpreter. My minor in college was Deaf Studies and the experiences I had in those short years was incredible. The culture and the language is so interesting and captivating.
What has been your favorite part about being a Young Life leader?
I love hanging out and having genuine relationships with my high school girls! They keep me young;) Also the community of Young Life, the Body of Christ I navigate through and with has been amazing. I not only have a community in St. Joe but have experienced true community as an intern at Young Life camps and while serving on assignments during the summer.
What is your favorite food?
Crinkle French fries and no I wont share.
If you could have lunch with anyone (past or present) who would it be and why?
My dad. He passed away three years ago and I miss him more and more every day. When I was in high school we frequented Macaroni Grill (when it was open). I cherish those memories of coloring our table and having father daughter time.
