All we need is love, simple but not always easy. As parents, authors, and educators, etc.  We can change a child’s life by listening with intention, and showing them with our words and actions that they matter and have a voice in this world.  In Barbara Gruener’s book Mr. Quigley’s Keys, she brings connecting with heart to life by sharing the story of a school handyman and how he serves and connects with the students by showing love, empathy and kindness. Her book reinforces the power of connection and how by serving others with heart we can make a difference one person at a time.

  • How can you connect with Heart?
  • What are some words of wisdom to help you live with heart?
  • When looking for books in your classroom, what do you look for?
