Hearts and hands
Posted on October 1, 2015
We use our hands in so many ways: to create, to learn, to express, and to bless. In the classroom, hands-on learning helps our students with their comprehension and retention of the subject matter. In relationships, our hands convey caring, comfort, and concern. So often, what’s in our hearts is demonstrated by what we do with our hands.
Our students have been using their hands in heartwarming ways. They are creating, learning, expressing, and blessing.
