Staff Spotlight: Quarantine Style with Eric Brookes

How is Eric doing in the Quarantine??

Eric is our Area Rep serving Putnam and Cabell counties.

Eric was asked the following questions.  Below each are his answers.

  1. How is God using COVID to impact your walk with Him?
    • I feel like during this time God continues to remind me that he would prefer my life look a little more like this and not as busy as life was prior to Covid 19. This season we are in may be taking that to the extreme, but I feel like I keep hearing that reminder that at times my life is too busy, mainly because of choices I make .
  2. What is something you’re looking forward to doing once the restrictions are lifted?
    • I look forward to visiting family and friends. Neither sides of our family live here in Hurricane, so we aren’t able to do a drive by to see them. I look forward seeing our family and being able to give them a hug.
  3. What is the first restaurant you’ll eat at when you can go in and sit down?
    • Outback Steakhouse. I’d like to bury my face in a plate of cheese fries and an extra large sweet tea!
  4. What habit/lifestyle change from the quarantine time do you hope to hang on to?
    • I’ve loved sitting in my driveway with my wife, and watching the kids ride bikes with other kids in the neighborhood. I hope this is something we will continue to do regularly.
  5. What’s been your favorite pastime/sanity break during quarantine?
    • I’ve had more time than ever to just pick up my guitar and play it. I’ve done more of that recently than I have in a long time. Also I’ve have had much more time to read. I’m a slow reader and it usually takes me a couple months to get through a book. So I’ve been able to spend even more time in God’s word, but also working on finishing up a couple books I’ve been reading.
