The Importance of Play

In this workshop, we dig deeper into why play/rest/sleep are so important for sharp brains in children and adults; another look at stewardship of our bodies. This is especially of interest to churches with Early Childhood Centers but the information is important for us all. Play is for adults as well, by design!
