Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present findings from an investigation of health with children who shared their unique stories and drawings when they were asked to "imagine becoming". Theoretical Perspective: Theory of human becoming. Parse's theory of human becoming with its human science perspective honors the voices of children as they convey messages of what is important to them regarding health and quality of life. Participants: Seven elementary school children, ages 6-12, enrolled in an after-school care program were invited to "imagine becoming". Method: Exploratory. The researcher was in true presence with the children as they voiced their health multidimensionally with stories and artwork. Findings: The simplistic beauty of what children expressed is evident as their meanings of health unfolded in their descriptions and drawings. The findings support the use of stories and drawings with this methodology to illuminate the meanings of lived experiences. Conclusions: This investigation enhances nursing knowledge on human becoming and quality of life with children as they live and voice their health experiences. The Parse research method, a phenomenologic-hermeneutic method consisting of dialogical engagement, extraction-synthesis, and heuristic interpretation will be explicated as the possible next step in investigating children's health.
