Dinosaur Track Field Trip

Posted on Sep 19, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Last month I had an opportunity to give some creation presentations at a church in Gateway, Colorado relating to dinosaurs and evidence for the Flood. Afterwards, we took an excursion to a dinosaur trackway which is found on a sandstone layer in the mountains between Gateway, Colorado and Moab, Utah. The question that was posed to me, as a geologist, was how they were made and then preserved. The first thing I jokingly told them is that the dinosaur must have weighed...

“Being a Dad Who Leads” Book Review

Posted on Aug 20, 2014 in Books and movies we like, Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  I am now officially a father of a sweet little boy and my wife and I are loving it. He is so precious to us. We have been so blessed by the generosity of others. Normally at baby showers, you get great stuff for the baby or for the mommy, but a couple of friends gave me, the daddy, a thoughtful gift. They gave me a book entitled, “Being a Dad Who Leads” by John MacArthur. I was somewhat familiar with the author and pastor and so I was excited to dig into it, even...

Horn Creek Creation Adventure Report

Posted on Aug 5, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Mary Jo & I recently enjoyed conducting a family camp at Horn Creek Camp near Westcliffe, Colorado. It was our first year doing a Creation Adventure at this camp and everything went great. Families enjoyed the facilities including their lodge rooms, excellent meals, and the meeting room for our presentations. The activities were as intense or as laid back as each family desired. From the comments we received, everyone benefitted from, and enjoyed, the Creation...

Our New Baby!

Posted on Jul 31, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  We have been anxiously awaiting the birth of our first baby. We did everything we thought that we could do to prepare for him or her (we didn’t know), as well as trying desperately to think through every decision so we could make the best and most God-glorifying decision. And we were doing good…we thought, but even with the best intentions, there is a fuzzy-line between trusting God and wanting it to go our way. We even developed our “birth plan” to be as natural,...

Not all in the Family

Posted on Jul 3, 2014 in Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I was taught through grade school, high school, and college; increasing brain capacity was evidence of human evolution. They would show pictures of ape like creatures with small skulls and small brains leading up to the more human like creatures with larger skulls and bigger brains.    Touring the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, IL, a few years ago, I noticed that the teaching hasn’t changed. As I studied science, and the limitations of science, I discovered...

Control and Provision

Posted on Jun 27, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  Just recently, we were blessed by a wonderful gift of money from a family member. We were excited as it added a buffer, some breathing room, as we look towards added expenses with our baby on the way. The next day, we had to go to the DMV to register our cars in Colorado for the first time since moving here. The DMV, for many, is known for long wait times and over-complicated “simple” transactions. We got there, took our number and waited. We only had to wait for a...

Microscopic Structure of Tears

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  I was alerted to a photographic study, which I managed to find on the web, regarding the microscopic structure of dried human tears. Rose-Lynn Fisher, the photographer, wondered if various tear types dry into different patterns. It appears at first glance that tears of joy yield a different pattern from tears from onions, tears from grief, or just normal tears which continually lubricate the eye. Although I had never considered that one teardrop might differ from...

What I learned on Father’s Day!

Posted on Jun 18, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  So Father’s Day has now come and gone and we haven’t had our baby yet (due in about a week and a half). At church, as well as from friends and family, I received comments saying “happy father’s day…almost” or “happy almost father’s day” and then some not even acknowledging me as a father. I have to admit, I think I may have said that to people in the past who were at that time just expecting. Now it is natural to think that since we don’t have a baby yet, that we...

Preparing

Posted on Jun 11, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  Currently, my wife and I are preparing for the birth of our first child. In fact, I feel like this whole year has been one of preparation with researching for books, blogs, and PowerPoint presentations, as well as planning and preparing for the inaugural class of the Discover Creation Training Institute, Lord willing, in August 2015. It has all been a challenge, but we are doing our best to prepare for the baby, ministry projects, and…everything…for the rest of our...

Getting over our fears

Posted on May 30, 2014 in Stepaneks from the Front | 3 comments

  As many of you know, my wife Sue was diagnosed with cancer in the small intestine.  When we first heard the news, we and the doctors were very concerned about the severity of the cancer.  There was a chance the cancer had already spread to the other organs.  Thoughts of living without Sue went through my mind.  These thoughts were unbearable.  The surgery went very well and the doctors were confident they removed all the cancer, but then there was the recovery.  The...

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...

Firm Foundation

Posted on May 22, 2014 in Marianis from the Front | 0 comments

  I’ve always known that a solid foundation is important, but until recently I had not seen firsthand the disastrous effects of not having one.  I recently had the opportunity to go on an unexpected adventure that led to a tour of a massive, uninhabited log home. Set on the edge of a lush, grassy meadow, with hillsides sloping up to snowy mountains behind, the expansive building fit beautifully into the landscape. The large reception room’s wood floors had a glossy...
