The Principle Approach®(1) and Other Biblical Classical Resources
Simple, practical, and effective mentoring and discipleship for Christian homeschooling parents.
We Are Biblical Classical Homeschoolers
The Principle Approach®
Firstly, I write about authentic Biblical Classical resources that I know beyond a shadow of a doubt
are either The Principle Approach®(1), with Biblically principled like-minded ministries, or that
are compatible with the application of an authentic Biblical Classical Education.
Secondly, I mentor and disciple Christian homeschooling parents in an authentic Biblical Classical Education (The Principle Approach®).
The language of bondage and tyranny is found in many areas of life and it produces individuals who will manipulate, deceive or succumb to those things. But Principled Academy can help you be confident in learning & teaching how to think and reason Biblically. You will confidently disciple your children on thinking and living in liberty by reasoning from absolute truth.
God’s principles are intelligent and practical.
They change individuals and nations.
Historically, Christians have reasoned from Biblical principles and applied them to life and learning.
Philosophy and methodology matter.
Can You Relate?
You want your homeschool lessons to fit within a Biblical frame for each subject. (1 Corinthians 3:11)
You want to teach your children how to think and reason from Biblical principles. (Acts 17:11)
You want your family to see God’s Providence throughout history. (Psalm 145:4)
You want your family to be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16,17)
You want to learn how to disciple the nations. (Matthew 28:18-20)
You need everything simplified.
We get it. Our resources help busy Christian homeschool parents like you.
The Puritan Founders of Harvard said: “Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed…to lay Christ at the bottom as the only Foundation of all
sound knowledge and learning.” That is the historical form of of education in America—a Biblical framework for each sphere of life and learning.
Hi! I’m Heather Hall. I help busy Christian homeschool parents go from being uncertain, insecure, and overwhelmed in discipling their children for life (through education) to being capable, confident, and equipped to disciple their children.
I’m an artist and creative; my degree is in Visual Communications. I enjoy serving with my gifts, talents, skills, and experience in teaching to help make complex concepts simple to understand. I love viewing the world through a Providential lens, Natural Law, Revealed Law, and the Three Wisdoms as Ben Gilmore taught them to me. Speaking of Ben, I’m certified in Ben Gilmore’s Principles of American Government course. Additionally, I’m certified in the Principle Approach®(1) Master Teacher Certification Program (which includes curriculum design) through the Foundation for American Christian Education.
Teaching with Bible principles in education is about developing Christian character and equipping the individual to reason from the principles of God’s Word through education for righteous living and every good work (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). This is the historic way of Christian thinking, reasoning, and living. Scripture renews our minds and has a role in our sanctification process as Christians.
Restoring life and learning to the Bible is growing! Join the Biblical Classical Homeschool Experience™ discipleship course and get equipped.
