Each year we are dedicated to donating a portion of the proceeds from Wondrous Star, Lend Thy Light to an organization that is devoted to helping people.
This record was recorded and mixed in three weeks; rough around the edges and mellow, these songs embody the rainy Pacific Northwest holidays.
Please feel free to purchase this music for more than it's listed to support good people, doing good work.
May this holiday season be your warmest,
brooke & the consortium
Young Life doesn't start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don't happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what's important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids' lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God's love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God's love for them, will impact future decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
