Today I leave to have my cool drink of (homeschooling) water. I will be attending the Texas Home School Coalition Conference. Can I get a yee haw?
In celebration, I am having a few giveaways! Can I get another yee haw?
Each of these giveaways is connected to one of my favorite speakers at the conference.
First: The Evolution of a Creationist
Dr. Jobe Martin is probably a genius. The man is amazing. He has a heart for sharing the truth, for helping others see God’s majesty, and for encouraging homeschoolers. I’ve heard him speak a couple of times, as well as met his precious wife, and have never forgotten his sessions. That’s saying something, right? He wrote The Evolution of a Creationist to share his journey as a biologist.
Dr. Martin also has some terrific videos for kids: Incredible Creatures that Defy Evolution. Check them out!
Second: a Voddie Baucham book: What He Must Be, Family Driven Faith, or Family Shepherds.
Voddie Baucham is probably one of the most dynamic preachers you will ever hear. He is bold. I like bold. The winner of this giveaway will get to choose which paperback (or Kindle) copy of this book he/she would like. You will be encouraged and challenged no matter which book you get. Seriously. I want them all, but have none. That shall be remedied at the conference. Should I get another photo with him?
Third: Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey
Last year I heard Dana Tillman speak and my brain could barely keep up, though I was super excited. Mr. Tillman helped me see some of the important concepts behind classical education that I had missed. He is brilliant and passionate about making sure we train our children to know, live out, and defend their worldview (He has some amazing worldview classes!) . He is just as passionate about teaching others to see that everyone and everything has a worldview. Learning to discern this is very important. I walked away from his booth with two amazing books: Total Truth and The Deadliest Monster. Total Truth is the big chunk of learning worldview. Deadliest Monster is the little bite.
There you have them: three of my favorite conference speakers. I’m also pumped to get to hear (and maybe meet… you never know with me!) Susan Wise Bauer for the first time. Can I get yet another yee haw?
While I hear these fabulous teachers, you can pretend to be with me at the conference by entering the giveaways! ;-)
