Brooke’s Butterfly Touch: Creative Storytelling Services is a Christ-centered communication and community building ministry, founded in October 2014 and will soon be applying for nonprofit (501c3) status.
Brooke’s Butterfly Touch: Creative Storytelling Services (BBT) strives to help others discover the power in sharing their own stories with their chosen community and/or audience in order to cultivate hope, emotional healing, acceptance, and new opportunities.
BBT aims to implement personal storytelling techniques to:
- Develop better communication methods for one’s experiences and abilities to create new opportunities, personally and professionally
- Inspire hope and emotional healing from hardships, while promoting a participant’s sense of purpose
- Eliminate societal prejudices, stigmas, and misconceptions of those that are differently-abled and/or face profound adversity (mental illness, disease, abuse, tragic loss, etc.)
BBT seeks to offer training, tools, support and create a forum for anyone wishing to encourage others by illustrating the higher purpose in their struggles and other life experiences, using the various forms of storytelling. This will also serve to highlight an individual’s skills and talents; heightening visibility beyond any physical or mental limitations.
