I’m Heidi. I love bridging gaps between past, present and future. And helping others do the same, especially families and students.

As one who often sits & sips among the Great Ones:
Jane Austin,
Mortimer Adler,
Frederick Buechner,
Winston Churchill,
CS Lewis,
Charlotte Mason
Laura Ingles Wilder
Willa Cather.

Welcome to a place where home makes history & heroes, life & learning while cultivating perpetual curiosity & creativity … pulsing at a pace for sustainable abundant living with hope-flowing compassion.

Establishing simple habits enhance ordinary days just as simple exercises can enhance the extraordinary days, too.

Investing and Developing Culture: from lens of history & home.

Personal: Married to Alex for nearly a quarter century. Mom to Micah, Isaiah, and Mia Ruth. At present, 2/3 of my homeschooled students are Presidential Scholars at their respective universities. (The King’s College, NYC and Southeastern University, FL). I still enjoy teaching our youngest who is in high school. We intentionally invested into our children with various experiences, including extended travel abroad. Our time in Germany produced many dear friendships we maintain.

Personal Strength in Education: eye for excellent resources

Some of my fav pastimes: Making memories with family, sipping up fresh air, routine physical fitness, good food with good friends, reading the Great Books, discussing excellent films and I’m happy walking beaches or crunching snow any day.
