Brooke’s Butterfly Touch: Creative Storytelling Services is a Christ-centered 501c3 Nonprofit communication and community building ministry, founded in October 2014.
Brooke’s Butterfly Touch: Creative Storytelling Services (BBT) strives to teach creative storytelling skills from a Christian worldview as a way to inspire hope and healing from hardships and eliminate societal prejudices or misconceptions of those with disabilities or who face profound adversity.
BBT aims to implement personal storytelling techniques to:
1. Develop better communication methods for one’s experiences and abilities to create new opportunities, personally and professionally
2. Inspire hope and emotional healing from hardships, while promoting a participant’s sense of purpose
3. See all forms of the Creative and Fine Arts become more inclusive, fully integrated, and accessible for people of all ability levels.
4. 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.
Your donations will help supply the necessary workshop materials, online tools, pay for event spaces, and fund the building of The Butterfly Touch Christian Center for the Arts; a loving and – fully integrated space where people with and without disabilities or mental health issues can come to learn how to share their experiences/stories, needs, and/or Faith, using their creative gifts to encourage others (1Peter 4:10-11).

Brooke Brown likes to be thought of as “an ink weaver of life, faith and fiction” because her passion is sharing all types of stories that bring Glory to God and inspire audiences. She’s the author of The Little Butterfly Girl; a blogger, coach, and speaker at Dr. John Trent’s Strong Families ministry; a writer for Autumn Magazine; and a creative project editor. Brooke is also an advocate for people with disabilities through acting in Theatre360, serving as Co-State Coordinator for the Ms. Wheelchair Arizona program, and sharing her life experiences with cerebral palsy at many conferences and community events.
As the marketing and promotions coordinator for S.T.A.R. – Stand Together And Recover Centers, Inc. I have had the opportunity to work with Brooke Brown on a few different occasions. Brooke has facilitated introductory and advanced Sharing Your Recovery Story workshops for the members at S.T.A.R. who are looking for a way to express their successes in recovery, while developing a deeper understanding of the recovery journey. Members who attend the training receive feedback on the story sharing process and leave the workshop empowered and informed on ways to communicate their journey and share hope with others. This workshop could be beneficial to anyone who has experienced hardship or overcome obstacles through their life’s journey and should not be limited to those who live with mental health conditions or struggle with substance abuse. Brooke is a very experienced facilitator and her preparation and dedication to her workshops shows. Her energy and zest for life and helping others share their story is infectious and it is inspiring to watch Brooke help develop our membership. Hearing the members reflect on the workshop with enthusiasm and eager to share their triumphs with others who may be struggling in their recovery is a cycle I would like to encourage. Thank you Brooke for doing your part to help end stigma!

I wanted to take a few moments to let anyone know who may be thinking of having Brooke Brown speak at any of their events, DO NOT HESITATE! She is an amazing and motivational speaker.
I think what is so unique about Brooke’s approach is that while most motivational speakers focus on a person’s gifts and how to use them, which in some ways is easy, Brooke’s approach is to motivate the audience to not only utilize their God given gifts, but how to discover purpose in one’s limitations as well.
Brooke spoke at my Leadership conference, and the women were inspired to grow and to dream bigger than they have been to pursue their passions and goals.
It is an honor to know Brooke, and it is so easy to be inspired by her sheer will to trust in all that God has in store for her! Her presentation ADAPT and Discover God’s Plan for you is appropriate for so many different venues. Don’t miss out on this jewel!
