I'm am also not afraid to say that I love to cook, shop, and encourage people to give their best, and help them believe in themselves.Hey there...I'm Brook Taylor, mother of two AMAZING children. Living happily in Grand Rapids, Michigan with my dream job. I love waking up early and then waking everyone else in West Michigan up with info, laughter and encouragement. One of the things people ask me a lot is first of all, "what time do you have to wake up?" and then "do you truly like the stuff you say you like on the radio". First answer, "2:30". Second answer, "if I didn't, I wouldn't say I liked it." People that listen to us are not just listeners. We have a relationship. They trust us. They believe we have their best interest in mind.
