A Child’s Work

“Play is a child’s work” and those times of pretending, dressing up, acting out, and role playing are essential to children as they process and explore who they are and what they can become. In other words, this is what kids are supposed to be doing, even when it might get messy!  To all the moms out there: enjoy the mess, embrace the pretending, encourage your children to play and forget about ever finding your pancake turner. You never know which childhood dream is going to turn into their grown up reality.


About Helouise Steenkamp

I'm a 45 plus, Devoted Wife and Mother. Adonai has blessed us with two Amazingly Wonderful Sons. We have had the privilege of being Place of Safety parents for 1 1/2 years and there after foster parents to a Darling Princess for 5 years. She was reconciled with her biological parents in Dec'14. Our hearts are still aching from the loss, but we know that as we trust Adonai with our salvation, so we can trust Him with her future. We welcomed our new 4 year old foster child on 05JUN'15.
