"Laurie's songs come directly from her soulful heart to yours.  With soothing, enthusiastic
and affirmative lyrics, children of all ages experience heightened emotional awareness
and spiritual groundedness. In a fast-paced workaday world where we often forget our connectedness, Laurie helps one to be mindful of self and others."

~ Jennifer McCandless, Artist, Mom, Heart Light, Sacramento, CA

"Enchanting Sebastian : a unique visual and spiritual treat for the whole family!
I absolutely LOVED the Sebastian Wakes Up story; the artwork is incredible, the story very simple yet deeply moving.
A real treasure for the whole family, Sebastian's story is eloquently presented with a rich tapestry of colour to keep your little ones entertained. Brilliant read! The audio version was recorded by her son, reinforcing the family-thread so common in this author's works. I wholeheartedly recommend this book." ~ Playful Genie, Callie Carling

Laurie Story & JeremiahLaurie Story VelaLaurie Story & Jeremiah15
New Thought Families is brought to you by Laurie Story Vela; often enhanced by her son, Jeremiah, now age 15 and a powerful, proficient musician. The New Thought Families online ministry of merry music & mindful home spirituality practices began in 2006 with the website going live on 2/7/2007. Laurie Story's first professional experience with children & New Thought was as Youth Education teacher and then director at Unity Temple, Santa Cruz, 1992-1994 where she designed & implemented playful curriculum & monthly church performances. She did more of the same for the Spiritual Life Center, Sacramento in 2005-6 where she directed a Youth Choir who sang monthly in church as well as on the Small After Small & I Am A Seeker CDs and in the first Name That Peacemaker production. Laurie Story has been creating, producing & publishing family & children's books, music & curriculum since receiving her M.A. in Education & Curriculum Design from UC Davis, 1991. Her Leaping Literacy program for developing readers & English language learners is full of her innovative 'physical phonics', amazing alliteration, and rollicking rhyme in hundreds of Laurie StorEBooks & songs found in the Leaping Literacy Online Library. The New Thought Families' section of Leaping Literacy Library focuses on spiritual literacy. The SoulPlay sister section sprang up from the 2014 SoulPlay TeleSummer Camp. Based on knowing that what we nurture will grow, Laurie hopes her work play can help empower families to be more heart centered, creative and connected ~ to each other and to Source.
Because conscious commitment cultivates co-creative, caring, compassionate connections!
