After listening to Heather's workshop on creative thinking, I decided to let my five year old son explore and possibly even fail on a sewing project! He wanted to try different fabrics, and I just wanted to select burlap because it would be easiest. Then I stopped; I allowed him to explore, to struggle, to evaluate for himself which fabric would work best. He was engaged in a higher level of thinking! He showed great satisfaction with HIS end product!"

Creating Powerful Learning Experiences for Your Members
After going through the process with Heather, I now have a more intentional desire to integrate the arts into our existing curriculum. I witnessed the impact on our 25 middle schoolers as they discussed the deep meaning in their final photographs with young and old generations in our Congregation! -- Ms. Brenda, Director of Youth and Family Ministry

I realize problem solving is a skill they [my kids] need to develop and this is more likely if I stay present but take more of a supporting role. Be less in 'fix it' mind set." -- F/R PTO Participant
