A favorite quote:

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony. WILLIAM HENRY CHANNING

About Brooke: 

I am a nurse who has volunteered and lived with a ministry in Port au Prince, Haiti called Child Hope International. This ministry is unique in that it houses, cares for, educates, and shares the love of Christ with young children, as well as teenagers, many of them formerly from the streets. Check out for more information. As of July 2012, I am back living in Seattle and will be working again at a nearby hospital.
