If God, Why Evil?

If God is all loving and all powerful, why is there so much evil in the world? Why doesn't God stop it? This is one of the toughest issues facing Christians. In this session we will tackle why God may allow evil and see that only the Christian worldview offers true hope in our broken world.

We did not get a recording of this talk, but this is a link to a YouTube video of the talk in another venue.

Truth or Tragedy

Our culture is deeply confused about the nature of truth. There are only two options: either embrace truth or live a life of tragedy. In this session, we will consider the nature of truth, evaluate common objections against the existence of truth and grasp the powerful implications of truth for our daily lives.

Atheist Encounter

How well can you defend your faith? What would you say if an atheist challenged your deepest convictions about God and the Bible? In this session, Sean will role play an atheist, raise tough questions against the faith and see how well the audience can defend their faith. Then Sean will step out of character and help students directly learn from the experience. This is a hands-on experience where you will walk away motivated and equipped to more lovingly and intelligently make a case for Christianity.

Attention, Obsessive-Compulsive Perfectionist Control Freaks: C.H.I.L.L. O.U.T.!

As an obsessive-compulsive perfectionist control freak herself, Rachael Carman discusses how we can often be our own worst enemy when it comes to taking advantage of freedoms of homeschooling. Are you tied to your plan? Do you shiver at the idea of change or adjustment? Are you missing out on significant moments because you are focused on the trivial? It’s time to C.H.I.L.L. O.U.T. and give control of it all to God—He is faithful.

Why the New Testament Can Be Trusted

In this session, students will be challenged to consider how accurately the Bible has been preserved through history. Research indicates that the Bible is more reliable than any of the top ten well-respected ancient documents. We will explore internal and external evidence supporting the reliability of the New Testament.

Understanding Intelligent Design

In this session, we will explore the most recent scientific data in cosmology, physics, biochemistry and biology that point toward an Intelligent Designer. David was right that the heavens give us knowledge about God (Ps 19:1-2). Those who open their minds to the possibility of an explanation beyond the natural world will find the design hypothesis best accounts for the scientific evidence. This talk is based upon Sean’s book Understanding Intelligent Design (co-written with William A. Dembski).

Celebrating the Journey: Loving, Learning and Laughing

Homeschooling is an amazing adventure—the journey of a lifetime. There are unique challenges, opportunities and experiences. Most of us are first-generation homeschoolers. So how do we do it? It’s easy to get the priorities out of order—to focus on the head knowledge and overlook or neglect the heart. Getting our priorities straight will not only honor God, but it will also enhance the educational process.
