Last weekend, I was privileged to attend the Fall Women’s Conference given by Kay Arthur at Precept Ministries International. We studied the book of Ruth in depth with the focus on hope and the concept of kinsman-redeemer. What an awesome foreshadowing of the ultimate kinsman-redeemer, Jesus Christ! There were 400 women at the conference, and I had the opportunity to speak to many women at the lunch and dinner table about our new women’s ministry, Answers for Women.
One woman told a story that was all too familiar of a son who had walked away from God and the church when he went away to college. I briefly shared the information from our book, Already Gone, and that her son was likely already spiritually gone in either middle or high school, which is why it is so important that we equip ourselves and children with the truth of God’s Word. The women at the conference were excited about our ministry, and I gave them information so they could check out our website and other materials.
On Monday I spoke at Tennessee Temple University which is about 15 minutes from the Precept campus in Chattanooga. TTU is one of the few universities in the U.S. that teaches Genesis as true history. I presented in four classes and gave several Q & A sessions (even one on my cochlear implant to the deaf studies group). The professors and students were receptive, and I enjoyed getting to know them.
I recently received this feedback from a mother about my article in Answers magazine on white blood cells.
My four year old and I really enjoyed the Mission: Search and Destroy comic book style for the body's war zone. He sat and let me read the whole thing to him. Even though at times I tripped saying some of the words he patiently sat and listened. His favorite part was the neutrophil “ate” the bacterium. That was to cool for him.It’s so exciting to see very young people learning the truth of God’s Word through cells! I’m also encouraged to see moms desiring to train their children from a very young age (just like Timothy’s mother and grandmother in 2 Timothy 1:5 and 2 Timothy 3:15).
Hopefully, my speaking schedule will be relatively “calm” for a while and I can devote some quality time to working on my stromatolite research project.
