Reignite Our Passion, Purpose and Joy Through the Power of Play 


Play serves an essential role in the lives of both children and adults.  God designed us to explore His world with awe, wonder and joy. Play provides a wonderful opportunity to do just that!  This interactive session is designed to help educators and leaders experience the power of self-active play, an enjoyable mindfulness practice that relieves stress and anxiety, while inspiring self-awareness, reflection, and connection.  We will consider the role of play in our own lives, and in our programs as a means for promoting healing, resilience, and joy. 


Reignite Creativity Through Process-Oriented Art  


Creativity is an essential trait of 21st Century Learning. Come explore ways that we, as teachers can inspire creativity within our classrooms by providing engaging, playful open-ended art experiences. We will examine the benefits of process-oriented art, lay the foundation for integrating creative art in the classroom, and get to explore playful process art experiences first-hand.  


Reignite Resilience Through Self-Care 


Most of us know how important it is to take care of ourselves, but we may struggle with how to make self-care a part of our daily routine.  Come and take some time to be restored and encouraged! In this session we will explore the importance of checking in with ourselves and identify practical strategies to support self-care. Resources regarding wellness practices and support will be shared.  


Registration for the event includes lunch choices from Chick-Fil-A and earning of up to 6 clock hours / 6 CEUs.
