Humble, wild-eyed follower.
Bert’s book — X-Plan Parenting: Become Your Child’s Ally–A Guide to Raising Strong Kids in a Challenging World — is NOW AVAILABLE from Simon & Schuster’s Howard Books.
Bert is a former psychology and world history teacher and a father of three. With nearly thirty years’ experience working with kids, Bert’s unique insights as a dad, educator, coach, camp leader, youth adviser, and speaker provide wisdom, understanding, and compassion to adults and kids. He splits time as a writer, musician, and speaker, and runs a veterinary practice with his wife, Laura. He is also the founder and co-director of Empty Stone Ministry, INC, a Christian non-profit that specializes in camps/retreats, small group events. Bert and his family live in Huntington, West Virginia.
Bert loves to play music, read, write, travel, camp, fish, backpack, and enjoys the simple pleasure of a good beer in his tractor’s cup-holder on a hot summer day. Lovingly referred to as “Dude” by friends, he is still learning to (among other things) abide.
At his son’s urging, Bert is also now on Twitter. Follow along! @BertFulks
