And I’m Homeschooling—WHY?! Keeping Your Focus
Sharing many examples from her personal homeschooling journey in a humorous fashion, veteran home educator and creation scientist Catie Frates would like to answer your questions. She will share curriculum suggestions and survival techniques in this Bible-based talk. All questions are welcome.

Make Your Home a Cancer Free Zone with Biblical Nutrition
Have you ever wondered if there is anything you can do to help prevent your family from getting cancer, diabetes, or heart disease? Come explore the Biblical instructions given to build our natural defenses so that we can live as God intended. Learn how food can assist or destroy your body. Additionally, Catie translates these Biblical instructions into practical applications in your home. Live with knowledge and no fear. Catie has been involved in the study of the causes of cancer since 1983 when she worked in basic immunologic and cancer research at the University of Florida using her degree in Micro and Cell Biology.

Fascinating, Fun, Faith-Building Science that Explores Nature from a Biblical Perspective
Science can and should be fun and build your family’s faith. Enjoy exploring nature from a Biblical perspective. To truly make science a faith affirming experience, we must teach our children how to translate the secular explanations in to a Biblical interpretation. Catie addresses such issues as adaptation, fossils and the geologic ages, among other pertinent subjects. Also learn answers to frequently asked difficult questions such as “Where did  Cain get his wife,” “How could people live over 900 years before the Flood,” and “How could distant starlight get here in just a few thousand years?” Catie will share the “how to” with you, including a timeline and free online resources!

How to Apply the Biblical Worldview to Your Science and History
Parents of elementary through high school students, come learn how to help your children interpret secular descriptions of science and history into a Biblical Worldview by exploring the past in an entertaining, chronological and family-friendly way with creation scientist and twenty year veteran homeschool mom Catie Frates. You and your children will gain confidence, encouragement and an exciting sense of newfound freedom when they are able to translate secular information into a Biblical Worldview knowing God’s word is trustworthy and true. Catie will share the “how to” with you including a timeline and free online resources!

Dinosaurs! Jehovah's Park versus Jurassic Park
Finally be able to equip your children to translate dinosaurs into a Biblical worldview! Enjoy learning the real history of dinosaurs from both the Biblical and secular accounts; then instead of a stumbling block, dinosaurs become the missionary lizards God meant them to be!

Biblical Nutrition
Have you ever wondered if there is anything you can do to help prevent your family from getting cancer, diabetes, or heart disease? "Biblical Nutrition" explores the Biblical instructions given to build our natural defenses so that we can live as God intended. Explore how food can assist or destroy your body, and be able to protect your body from the ravages of disease we all face and fear. Live with knowledge and no fear. Warning - this seminar could change your life.

The Creation Interpretation Part 1 (of 2)
Be encouraged as you take an exciting adventure into the past! Explore the answers to some very hard questions Christians have to face. Be prepared to protect and defend your faith against controversial issues. Laying a firm foundation in Part One, the big picture will be revealed as you investigate evidence for a young earth, dig through Flood geology and fossil evidence, chill to the post-Flood Ice Age, adventure back to the Tower of Babel, be amazed by ancient man's incredible prowess, and finally understand how dinosaurs fit into the Bible.

The Creation Interpretation Part 2
Elaborating on the foundation laid in Part One, you'll investigate the latest scientific findings and how they fit into the Biblical model. Wonder at the stars as we explore aspects of outer space and evidence that God spoke it into being just as the Bible says. Ponder the geologic record and glimpse what the Preflood world may have looked like including a continent-sized floating forest. Quake as continents speed at 10 miles per hour and collide under the ocean. Investigate the horrific post-Flood global conditions as the planet reels for hundreds of years from the cataclysmic judgment that ancient man and dinosaurs lived through.

The Creation Perspective of Man
Examine the evidence, or lack thereof, for human evolution and then take an exciting journey back in time exploring the extraordinary accomplishments of ancient man, solving many Biblical and secular mysteries including where Cain got his wife, how current languages connect with Noah and family, and how secular ancient history connects with Biblical history. Finally have the answers!

A One Hour Overview of the Biblical Scientific Creation Model of Origins
Science really can be fun and spiritually uplifting! Explore the latest scientific discoveries interpreted through the light of Biblical truth and finally feel confident to teach science without compromising your faith. Our adventure will include a glimpse of the pre-Flood paradise, the catastrophic world-covering Flood, fossils buried in a mile of rock strata, the Ice Age and mammoths, amazing technologies of ancient man, and we will end by solving the mystery of dinosaurs and the Bible.

Mammoths, the Ice Age, and Ancient Man
Massive woolly mammoths and the Ice Age fit into your Biblical worldview and history program at last! Learn how the Genesis Flood caused the Ice Age, how long it lasted, what patriarchs lived through it, and its effects on animals and man worldwide. Finally be equipped to guide your children smoothly through the connection between Genesis and secular ancient history.

The Young Earth, Fossils and the Flood
Never be intimidated or confused in a museum or national park again! Be equipped to evaluate secular/evolutionary interpretations of data into a Biblical worldview by learning how the secular geologic ages fit into your Bible. Marvel at the evidence for a world-covering Genesis Flood and how it makes scientific evidence for an old earth disappear!

My hope is that this list will assist conference organizers in connecting with Catie Frates 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.
