Kent and Amy Bowler are passionate about freedom and education. Together they love taking on the challenges of life, of raising a righteous family unto the Lord, and mentoring the Hero Generation and their families. They love the chance to teach and serve in their Commonwealth School in St. George, UT as well as training LEMI mentors and parents in many communities across the country. They have home schooled their children for 17 years. Amy gets excited when she sees the spark of epiphany when a student “gets it”. Her greatest joys are mentoring with her best friend and husband, Kent, and spending time with her 7 children (and 1 grandchild) laughing, hiking, walking on the beach, playing games and reading. Kent also loves playing with his best family, racing his Silver Snatchit, reading, writing, and learning more and more all the time! They are both eternally grateful to their supportive family and their Father in Heaven.
