THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  You have probably heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Studies have shown that 80% of the knowledge our brain accumulates comes from sight. So with these two thoughts in mind, we have chosen to use pictures and graphics as a powerful tool for teaching. For the last 24 years, Marilyn and I have used many techniques for projecting images. When we first began with AOI, Marilyn was doing the major amount of teaching with a flannel board. This limited us to...

Not There for the First Crawl

Not There for the First Crawl

Posted on Feb 10, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  As most of the speakers at AOI can attest, being out on the road at speaking venues takes us away from many of the accomplishments of our kids or grandkids. Marilyn and I have been there for the birth of all seven of our grandkids, so that has been a real blessing; however, we have also missed many of their concerts, recitals, plays, games and “firsts”. While out on the present speaking trip, we missed our 7 month old Reed taking his first crawl. I really thought he...

AWANA – Because Kids Matter to God

AWANA – Because Kids Matter to God

Posted on Feb 2, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Many times while on teaching tours we are invited to share with Awana groups about Biblical Creation. AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. The title is derived from 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” What is Awana? Awana is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to the belief that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love and...

  I forgot my camera recently (would have loved a picture), but we were blessed with the opportunity to speak at an Albuquerque, New Mexico Christian School… and during chapel time we had 500 high school students, followed by 400 middle school students.  The remainder of the day Lanny taught 6 different 7th grade classroom sessions with 40-60 students at a time. From 7:15 am until 3:00 pm, it was non-stop talking!  If that wasn’t enough teaching for the...

Encountering the Ark

Encountering the Ark

Posted on Nov 1, 2016 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

In August, we were invited to teach a family program at Generation’s Noah Conference (http://www.generations.org/) held in Florence, Kentucky. We were able to teach 5 different sessions to an average attendance of 250 kids and adults (with 2 sessions of 300+). It turned out to be a real blessing. As an added blessing, we were able to tour Answer in Genesis’ Creation Museum and the newly opened Ark Encounter, a life-sized model of Noah’s Ark. According to the Bible the...

What are you doing God?

Posted on Oct 18, 2016 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

By Marilyn Johnson Do circumstances ever make you ask, “What are you doing God”? By April of every year we are usually so booked with summer Vacation Bible Schools or Bible Camps that we have to turn folks away. However, this year was different; we were not flooded with requests. During that time, we were earnestly beginning to ask God “What’s up?” And then God opened the gates. Within a day or two, three opportunities opened up! Following God’s lead we...

A Spiritual Battleground

Posted on May 29, 2014 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  In April, I was invited by Master Plan Ministries  to speak on the Auraria campus in downtown Denver. The Auraria campus is the home of Metro State College, University of Colorado Denver, Community College of Denver and approximately 40,000 students. Auraria is the largest campus in Colorado and has a very sizeable international student population from some of the most closed nations in the world. I was invited to speak on the “hot” topic of Creation at the weekly...

“Wet Glue”

Posted on Jan 28, 2014 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  This is not an unknown revelation … things break. Some of these broken things can be repaired if we can only stick them back together. The first item many of us turn to for repairs is duct-tape or bailing-wire; however, if you try to put a vase, or fine china, back together using duct-tape, the results are far from satisfactory – and a wire repair on such items is preposterous. So our next option for restoration is some type of glue product. Two of the most versatile...

An Engineered Marvel in a Wall

Posted on Dec 17, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Over the past few months I have been in the process of updating the windows in our older home (built in 1950), adding insulation in the wall cavities, and upgrading the electrical system. Apparently fuel for heating was very cheap back when the house was constructed, because the carpenters did not put any insulation in the walls. As you can imagine, it has been difficult and expensive to keep the house warm during the winter and cool during the summer. To my...

Have a Laugh!

Posted on Nov 15, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  The following is an article from Creation Moments ( You Need a Healthy Laugh ): Proverbs 17:22 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” Laughing is good for you even if it does begin with the release of adrenaline and other stress hormones. Whether you are tickled or reacting to a good joke, at least seven different centers in the brain react in various ways. Your response begins with the release of stress hormones. Your...

The Comfort of the Word

  My mother shared with me an experience that happened to her last week. She went to visit a dear Christian friend of hers that was at a hospice facility, something she had been doing several times a week when possible. She told the nurse that she would only stay for a few minutes, but the nurse insisted that she stay as long as she wanted, for her friend, even though near death and in a comatose state, could hear her. My mother held her friend’s hand and conversed...

On the Lighter Side

Posted on Oct 17, 2013 in Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Kids have told us a lot of humorous things over the years. Two of our favorites: After a family seminar where we had talked about dinosaurs, a young girl about 7 years old came up to my wife and told her that she knew what happened to the dinosaurs (in reference to why they went extinct). “My girl horse doesn’t like our boy horse, so she can’t have a baby. So I think the girl dinosaurs just didn’t like the boy dinosaurs!”    On a recent occasion, I had just asked an...
