Welcome to the Discover Creation Blog. Among other things, this is where you’ll find updates from our speakers, interesting reading, and more.
The best laid plans and preparation don’t always go as planned. Last week we prepared our truck and 5th wheel trailer for its first spring road trip. We were heading to Albuquerque, NM, and a nearby community to teach at a church, followed by a three day homeschool conference, where we were speakers as well as having a booth. I had de-winterized the trailer, checked all the mechanical and electrical equipment and checked propane levels and tire pressures. Then the...Read More
I wanted to share with you an encouraging email we received from an attendee of one of our church seminars. At this particular event, I was teaching my Genesis Series starting with Genesis chapter one. Below is the email (the name and location were withheld by request). Hi Rich, Thank you so much for teaching during the Sunday school hour at our church this past month. I hope you can come back again if you have the time. There are so many more things I want to...Read More

They were very full and exceptionally beautiful, even in the rain! It was also fascinating to see the immense amount of moss growing on the...Read More
On the college field trip that Mary Jo & I are leading, we see many great sites, several of which leave us with more questions than answers. One such example is: what caused the unusual formation called Upheaval Dome? Was it a meteor that slammed into the earth at this spot? Perhaps it was a fluid like bulge of a salt dome pushing it up from below? Is it a volcanic outburst? Perhaps there were giant gophers in the past that dug this immense mile wide hole? All of...Read More
Two weeks ago, Marilyn and I had the opportunity to teach at a Christian Academy in Vernal, Utah and a Sunday morning and evening at a church. Since Saturday was a free day, we went on a hunting trip, looking for a picnic and campground that I fondly remembered as a young boy. Sounds simple enough, but the last time I was there was over 60 years ago, and so my memory juices were really put to the test. I didn’t end up finding the campground … it is no longer...Read More
