"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."

Ruth also has two previous books on the early history of the world:
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.
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.
