"Companion Magazine is the best gift I have ever given to myself. The emails that I receive from people telling me that our magazine has put a smile on their face in their darkest hour is better than any amount of money. The friendships I have made with my editors and contributors are ones that I will have for the rest of my life. We have felt the same suffering and we support each other in the most insightful and deep ways. Today, we have 4 issues all online. I have an amazing staff of 4 other editors, plus contributors who are so brave and willing to write for me. It’s truly amazing. I have gotten the opportunity to talk with people from all over the world who have not only written incredibly inspiring pieces for me, they have changed my life, they have helped me to heal." -Brooke B.
