The Self-Governed Child: The Hope of Our Nation

This guest post is by Gina Harden with Liberty Grows. The Self-Governed Child: The Hope of Our Nation   Every religion has its form of government. Judaism has the Mosaic law, a form of external government; Islam has Sharia law; and “Christianity astonished the world by establishing self-government in America.” Self-government is the government of God internally. James Madison said that we “rest all our political experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government.” Many Read more about The Self-Governed Child: The Hope of Our Nation[…]

The Noah Plan

What is the Noah Plan? It’s an amazing gift to us from Noah Webster. I’m not kidding. While Noah Webster spent twenty-six years of his life compiling his 1828 Dictionary for our nation, it wasn’t his only contribution. In fact, he left more in his inheritance for Americans. Indeed yes, it’s our inheritance. But as with any inheritance, in order for us to have it, we have to claim it…   Noah Webster’s Intellectual Property Read more about The Noah Plan[…]

The Principle Approach® and Greek Myths

The Principle Approach® and Greek Myths If you’re like me, at first you may not be sure where to take the topic of studying Greek Myths. In my educational background, home education makes up most of my formal education. And my parents didn’t ever teach us about Greek Myths. In fact, The Little Mermaid was off limits because of the false gods in the film. So, naturally my initial inclination is to also not teach Read more about The Principle Approach® and Greek Myths[…]

Saving America with the Principle Approach

Saving America with the Principle Approach® She’s super special to me. And even though she’s much older than I, it’s a blessing to know her. Or at least to know her through her past. Without doubt, she’s changing. And it’s concerning to me. By all means, to see her character suffering so is excruciatingly painful. On all sides, people think they know what the answer is. Yet, I question how the things many people say Read more about Saving America with the Principle Approach[…]

Notebook Pages for The Noah Plan® Kindergarten Curriculum

Notebook Pages for The Noah Plan® Kindergarten Curriculum I love that the Principle Approach® philosophy and method may be used with any Christian curriculum. Really, in order to apply it to other curricula one needs to use the 4R method. And to have the “big red books” that teach us our Christian Heritage and Constitution. However, thankfully there’s a curriculum which already utilizes it. Indeed there is one and it’s called the Noah Plan® Curriculum. Happily, there’s Read more about Notebook Pages for The Noah Plan® Kindergarten Curriculum[…]

When You’re At A Crossroads With the Noah Plan®, (4th-8th Grades)

My journey with the Noah Plan® curriculum has had it’s ups and downs. It took me a while to catch on to the method that it uses, to sort through how the curriculum guides and the K-3rd curriculum books work together and separately, and how the red books tie in to it all. Once that was all figured out, there was the element of time that I wrestled with. We’re talking about a series of Read more about When You’re At A Crossroads With the Noah Plan®, (4th-8th Grades)[…]

How to Understand the Approach to Bible Principles

When I first started receiving my Noah Plan® curriculum books and Noah Plan® Curriculum Guides and “red books,” I was so excited! While I was swimming in an ocean of books, waves would come. I was overwhelmed, I was sort of confused on some things, and I felt a bit tearfully defeated. Eventually, I braved up to make the call, and I was encouraged by talking with a gal at The Foundation for American Christian Education. The Read more about How to Understand the Approach to Bible Principles[…]

The Moment They Have Gone Away…

What is the most important thing to you for your children? Mine is that when all is said and done, when all the time I have been blessed with for having them by my side to raise and teach them, that the moment they have gone away from the nest, they will not turn away from the Lord. I have learned that being careful in what we choose to have set before our eyes and Read more about The Moment They Have Gone Away…[…]
