School Day

I don't make time for play, the whole day is play. - Kristi Mraz

God loves you

You are always being gazed at with infinite tenderness. - Brennan Manning

As They Play

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn. - O. Fred Donaldson

Praying Parent

Being a perfect parent doesn't matter. Being a praying parent does. - Stormie Omartian

Big Picture Thinking

Often the richest, most productive play doesn't look like much because it's dawdling, imagining, daydreaming, big picture thinking. - Janet Lansbury


It is necessary that we dream now and then. No one ever achieved anything from the smallest to the greatest unless the dream was dreamed first. - Laura Ingalls Wilder


Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning. - Mister Rogers

Out Loud

I strongly advise that you read your work out loud to yourself as you revise it. No need to feel foolish. The best writers do this, and it will help you more than anything else. - Paul B. Janeczko

No Substitute for Play

Play is nature’s way of teaching children how to solve their own problems, control their impulses, modulate their emotions, see from others perspectives, negotiate differences, and get along with others as equals. There is no substitute for play as means of learning these skills. - Peter Gray, Free to Learn 

Play for Keeps

As they play they learn to cope with frustration, to continue to try to improve, to share with others, to give vocal expression to their thoughts and fantasies. They literally 'play for keeps.' - Bettye M. Caldwell
