Heather is the mother of four (three boys and one daughter), all of whom have been homeschooled from the beginning. She enjoys learning alongside her children through project-based learning as a Leadership Education Mentoring Institute (LEMI) mentor and trainer and utilizing her college studies in cultural anthropology. Her favorite projects are history-based as she enjoys making history come to life through reenactments, simulations, activities, and meaningful, principle-based discussions.
When not engrossed in the past, she spends time volunteering in the community with the Boy Scouts of America and her church. She especially enjoys being Skipper of a homeschool-based Sea Scout Ship. When not doing any of the above, you’ll find Heather in a hammock reading a book, playing the ukulele, or on a date with her husband of 26 years.

Seek Ye Out of the Best Books (Heather Fuhriman)Room 2
Make meaningful discussion of the “best books” a part of your family’s culture. Learn tips on asking the right questions for kids of all ages that lead them to develop the ability to think, seek truth, promote engaging conversations (especially with those they may disagree with), apply literary life lessons to their own lives, make connections across their studies (especially to the scriptures), and have fun at the same time as a family. We’ll be using the book, Little Britches, by Ralph Moody as an example. Please read if you can; if not, come anyway.
