They were So Happy to be together that Brooke had to interrupt them to get the class moving.
The other beautiful element of Brooke’s class was her own transparency. In the middle of class, Brooke shared a letter from God to her that she had written the night before. Yesterday she posted it on her blog, where you can read it.
