    Author Dr. Ruth Beechick
    "Doctor Beechick is a prolific writer,
    driven by a need to help and teach,
    and a knack for writing in plain English."

    "I meet teaching parents all around the country and find them to be intelligent, enthusiastic, creative people doing a marvelous job of teaching their children. But, sad to say, most of them do not know what a great job they are doing. Everyone thinks it goes smoothly in everyone else's house and theirs is the only place that has problems. I'll let you in on a secret about teaching: there is no place in the world where it rolls along smoothly without problems. Only in articles and books can that happen."

    How To Write Clearly
    The Meaning Approach

  • How to link sentences to keep the readers with you.

  • How following the story thread is better than "encyclopedia"
            fact writing.

  • How to solve most comma problems without grammar rules.

  • How to write with verbs instead of nouns to perk up your prose.

  • Numerous other techniques that make sense.

  • This book contrasts with much of today's teaching on how to write, which is ineffective and deadening to students. Here we explain the historical roots of that old system so you can confidently move to the meaning system. A bonus chapter gives a history of how English language came to us.

    Ruth also has two previous books on the early history of the world:
  • Genesis: Finding Our Roots
  • Adam and His Kin

  • Heart & Mind

    Heart & Mind:
    What the Bible Says
    About Learning

    Ruth Beechick’s book Heart & Mind offers fresh insight on what the Bible says about learning. Teaching and learning are more effective when people are viewed with heart – with the image of God within them. All other learning theories view man as simply a body. The body learns by seeing, hearing, and sensing in other ways, but it is the heart that acts upon these stimuli.

    Heart & Mind
    This book contains the most complete research available about heart in the Bible. The Bible says the heart knows, considers, speaks, remembers, deceives, meditates, and other functions that modernists like to attribute to the brain. This book also reports physiological research that shows the Bible was right all along in the way it spoke about heart. A chart in the appendix summarizes almost 1000 Bible references to heart by meaning.

    By restoring our understanding of the role of heart, Dr. Beechick is reminding educators and parents – and especially homeschoolers – that we are not only “educating,” but truly training up the child in the way that he or she should go – in the image of God.

Adam, Noah, and other eyewitnesses actually wrote these records for us. This unique course, based on Genesis 1-11, integrates the linguistic evidence and other fields of knowledge with the Bible. It clears up the fuzziness of history before Egypt. Through literature and art it reveals startling insights about giants, dragons, cherubim and other beings that the early people knew but we have lost in myth. Gives true answers to age-old questions of God, man, and the world -- in order to develop the right worldview, which leads to right thinking. Includes maps, charts, timeline and full-color reproductions of ancient art. Six units with flexible uses for teens, almost teens, and the rest of the family.
