August, 2014

So, my family and I are having a delightful Summer getting up close and personal with the natural world- we’re camping! We’re taking time to read, bike ride, and just listen to the sounds of trees, birds, and bugs. I’m also keeping up with what’s happening in the creation community at least on podcasts and emails (I just inherited a tiny smartphone with internet connection, which means I’ve already fixed a couple mobile bugs on my website 😮 ).

Here’s some exciting things I’ve run into:Globe and Computer Mouse

Have you caught the past few episodes of the Creation Today Show? It’s always been interesting, but now it’s even more awesome. Eric Hovind has a new cohost who’s as young and enthusiastic as he is. Not only that, they are now doing a science experiment every week. Our favorite so far is the one with the bowling ball. My 10 year old has watched a whole episode with me, but I just call my younger ones over for the experiment and then they leave mommy to her obsession. 😀

Oh, yes, I just noticed today that the audio version of the show is being posted to iTunes again. I’m so thankful. Yes, you lose some of the impact, but it’s way better for those of us driving, ironing, etc. to listen than miss the whole thing. Thanks CT tech guys! I appreciate it.

Then there’s the new Creation Club. It’s run by David Rives, homeschool grad and rising star in creation circles (have you seen his Creation in the 21st Century show yet?). It’s a website for and by independent creationists, giving us a chance to learn about fresh voices in the ministry.

My young friend, Jacob Howard, (who’s starting to take college courses now) is a regular contributor, along with Vinnie Harned (still with some high school to finish) and even yours truly. There are videos as well as articles of all kinds and even music.

Airmail EnvelopeIt’s been a while since I mentioned the Creation Science Hall of Fame. Every week they post new articles in their News department. It’s really a blog by another name with articles from a number of people as well as news on people and events in the creation community. I enjoyed one recent article on how the number of days in a year could have been changed by the Flood. It’s harder to picture how that would work than reading through most science papers, but sounds way cool!

Another email I love getting is from Creation Research in Australia with John MacKay. Every month they share new discoveries with both the secular reporting and thoughts on what we actually see. There’s always something fascinating to learn and a mini education in the way we think as believers in our Creator God.

There’s one more email I get that’s usually so chalk full of info it’s hard to absorb it all. That’s because Creation Evolution Headlines puts out a new article every day! So much is happening in the scientific world it takes that much posting to try to keep up. The author can get a little less than polite at times because the crazy ideas out there get frustrating, but the info is amazing.

As you can see, this is way more information than I can pass on here. In fact, I’m thinking about starting a podcast of my own to share some of these things with you. It’ll have to be after we get settled into a school year routine, but I think it would be awesome for my kids to get a chance to join me as cohosts. What would be really amazing would be to give kids a place to add their own touch with stories of their own.

What do you think?

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. Malachi 3:16
