Principle 1: It is the Language of Freedom
Because this language is the Language of Freedom, it models for us how to learn and to teach utilizing the essential Agency-based Hebrew ways. A friend has asked me if I could just “fire-hose the information to him”. I laughed and said, “Absolutely not!” It is not that I don’t want to. I may like to be able to have the gift of distilling knowledge to a person…(not really actually), but the very nature of this language teaches us that the learner’s agency is number one important! There is a process of learning it and a process for which it should be taught. It is just how learning this symbolic language works. It takes a humble seeker who is patient and willing to learn layer by layer. For those who believe they are learning this language, but the guides and teachers are not honoring this way, maybe rethink the sources.
Principle 2: It is the Language of Creation
For behold, by the power of his word man came upon the face of the earth, which earth was created by the power of his word. Wherefore, if God being able to speak and the world was, and to speak and man was created, O then, why not able to command the earth, or the workmanship of his hands upon the face of it, according to his will and pleasure? - Jacob 4:9
This language helps one understand the deeper order of things. From that wisdom and understanding, it helps one create that order in learning. This order is needed in our day to restore order to our institutions of governances like families and our places of learning. Who wouldn’t want to raise children and grandchildren who have the wisdom and understanding of this order in Creation to become Creators and Innovators who can create a world of order, law and peace which can inherit Zion?
Principle 3: It is Governed by the Language of the Spirit
Yes, this language involves all three! We could even identify these three metaphorically as the Father of protecting freedom, the Mother who helps the creative learning process flow, and the Holy Spirit who really does the true teaching. This is just a poetic way to illustrate there is a masculine and feminine nature of the first two languages. As I wrote this and evaluated the connection, I feel it really is a great example. All three of these these “languages” really do work together beautifully. Once we have submitted ourselves to the process to learn this language, (That is another great reason ~ it takes practice in submission to The Process) that submission opens our hearts and allows the Spirit to do the teaching. Those who are Facilitating or Mentoring, are just showing you where to look so He can teach what you personally need at that present moment.
Principle 4: It Promotes Learning in the Right-Side of the Brain
Principle 5: Teaches the Law & the Prophets
Through this process of coming to learn the Hebraic Principles of Creation in the Foundation Builder Guide’s mentoring study, a learner examines the Bible in a new way. Through our study in these books, The Law: the first 5 Books of Moses, and The Prophets: the Teachings of the Prophets in the first of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, present themselves in a way which helps us gain a scaffolding view and helps us understand further what Jesus may have meant when He said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” - Matthew 5:17
Principle 6: Provides Original Source Meanings into the Language of Symbolism & Builds Foundation on Christ & His Creation
supports you to see every subject in His Creation connecting to Him.
Principle 7: Restores Understanding into Our Original Culture & Story
Layer by layer, month by month, the study of the Hebraic Principles of Creation studied through the Foundation Builder Guide’s mentoring, opens a view of what our Original Culture & Story IS. It is easy to think this culture is vaguely unknown unless you are a prophet or something, however, this is plainly seen when combining the Liberal Arts quality study done with Women, Mothers, & Families who are, with God’s help and will, preparing to assist in restoring this Original Culture & Story.

Principle 9: Verifies Doctrine & Principles of The Gospel of Jesus Christ
Because the Secular Humanists are alive and well and have infiltrated most institutions our parents have held dear, we need additional education and tools to help us navigate this world. Yes, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it’s Core Books helps us in this, but what if we have a hard time determining what is doctrine and what is not? What if it’s too late and we have built a faulty foundation or fallen for “worldly wiseman?” We wouldn’t know unless we have hindsight vision! However, we can pray to know the resources and mentoring which will assist us in our personal journey. The Principles of Creation taught through this unique mentoring, and reserved for such a time as this, only helps us verify doctrine of Christ to truths in the Ancient scripture as well restored so that we might see through the many differing worldview philosophies.
Principle 10: Empowers Us and Our Young Adults to Stand in Leadership
For those who have had the blessing to learn this language in layers as they have grown and are ready, learning in secular humanistic institutions will hold not weight, power and glory, but feel wanting. Studying these Principles of Creation with the Foundation Builder Guide gives us practice in seeing the gaps of order in our society and which principles are needed to bring that order. This empowers us to stand in that truth with more effective foundation and language to communicate and fill those gaps.
A Bonus Principle For Those Who Attend Melchizedek Priesthood Temples: Prepares Young Adults for Restored Melchizedek Priesthood Temple Ordinances
For those who have had the blessing to learn this language in layers in the Hebrew Way as they have grown, preparing to participate in Priestly ordinances or Temple worship will not be a shock but a Feast!! Just the other day, I heard from a previous student who was in the pilot classes. She taught her children, in the Hebrew way I modeled in our live classes, all the Hebraic Principles of Creation throughout the time of our live study discussions and beyond, and just recently she took her daughter to the Temple for the first time. Her daughter was amazed at all the symbols and so excited to talk about the meanings she saw there!
We are doing something powerful with God through this study. He knows its preparation and its delivery and if you feel drawn to add these valuable principles of wisdom and understanding to your life, consider joining us in Foundation Builder Guide’s Intro Principles of Creation Class. It can be accessed on your own time in our online learning system on FBGStudy.HouseoftheBook.org.

Completing that material will give you a great glimpse of learning from these Hebraic Principles of Creation. This symbolic language has to be experienced and is not easily told about. That’s another thing I love about these principles!
