Presentation Titles & Descriptions

Was Darwin Wrong? Part 2: So-called "Proofs" of Evolution
Evolution is taught as “fact” in textbooks, schools, museums, national parks, and the media, but has modern science really confirmed Darwin’s theory? Mary Jo Nutting shows why the common "proofs" of evolution do not hold up to scientific scrutiny, but instead affirm the Biblical account of creation and the fall. This understandable, beautifully illustrated program helps you and your family ask the right questions so that you will not be taken in by "accepted" scientific dogma and typical textbook arguments.

So What? What Difference Does It Make?
The Bible tells us that we were created in the image of God – evolution says we are products of time and chance, just glorified apes. What difference does it make for our daily lives in the 21st century? Using stories and personal illustrations, Mary Jo shows how beliefs about creation and evolution impact 3 main areas of life: social, spiritual, and personal. She encourages young people and adults to find true meaning and purpose in life by trusting their Creator and discovering His plan for their life.  

Blind Chance or Grand Design? (Dave or Mary Jo Nutting)
Design in nature points to an Intelligent Designer, not random chance and accidents. Fascinating examples from the living world support the claim that “The evidence cries out: Creation!” This fun and delightfully illustrated program is suitable for both children and adults.

Bible, Science, and Earth History (Dave or Mary Jo Nutting)
Do science and the Bible fit together? What is the relationship between faith and evidence? Learn why it is so important to understand the difference between scientific investigation and Biblical revelation. Discover how to integrate science and Scripture using the Biblical model of earth history, from Creation through the Fall and Flood and beyond. God’s Word and His World really do agree. (Longer version of this lecture: Part 1 focuses on Creation; Part 2 focuses on the Fall, the Flood and beyond.)

Refuting Compromise (Dave or Mary Jo Nutting)
Can you really trust the Bible? Did God use evolution as His means of creating? Were the days in Genesis 1 really days, or were they periods of time millions of years long? This program explores ways in which Christians have tried to reconcile evolution with the Bible, and demonstrates the difficulties of these compromise positions. It encourages participants to stand firmly on God’s Word, beginning in Genesis.

Creation Evangelism (Dave and/or Mary Jo Nutting)
The Gospel begins in Genesis. The Creator of the universe is also our Savior. In this presentation, Dave and Mary Jo share stories and testimonies of God’s faithfulness in allowing them to share the message of creation and the cross here in the States and to the ends of the earth. You will be encouraged by hearing evidence of God’s provision and protection, and challenged to follow God wherever He leads you. Join us for an exciting adventure in world missions.

You Can Do It! A Homeschool Pioneer Shares Challenges and Insights
What was it like in those early days of homeschooling? What has stood the test of time and what would I do differently? Using personal experience and insights from Scripture, Mary Jo presents a commonsense approach to homeschooling based on the principles of Design, Discipleship, and Dedication. With compassion and enthusiasm, she loves to encourage both newcomers and weary veteran homeschoolers that with God’s help and some simple understanding, “You Really Can Do It!”

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Mary Jo Nutting and other workshop leaders and speakers. Furthermore, my desire is to help homeschool workshop leaders and speakers develop relationships with more convention planners and audiences. May your efforts be for the glory of Christ and the strengthening of His saints.
