Start the School Year Right

As we filmed ICR’s latest DVD series, I often found myself in complete awe at the work of our majestic God. As you’ll see in the feature this month, “Behind the Scenes of The Universe: A Journey Through God’s Grand Design,” the film team had plenty of opportunities to laugh about challenges and changes to our best-laid plans. While we like to poke fun at our adventures, you can be certain that ICR’s message never changes: All of creation showcases our Creator. We’re thrilled to be able to point others to the work of our heavenly Father.

If you’re a parent, you’re probably getting ready to begin another school year. In the midst of your preparations, take time now to equip your student with truth. Talk about evolutionary claims your child may encounter in science and history classes, and help your student find the evidence that reveals the errors of evolution. ICR.org has thousands of articles available to help you. It also offers links to our radio programs and That’s a Fact videos.

Our online store (ICR.org/store) provides creation resources to equip your student with truth. Our latest children’s book, Dinosaurs: God’s Mysterious Creatures, includes fascinating facts about dinosaurs, creation, and the Flood, while also dispelling evolutionary myths with scientific evidence. Colorful illustrations and simple language make it a good introduction to real dinosaur history. Our Guide to… books cover creation basics, animals, the human body, dinosaurs, and the universe. This series is more detailed in its explanations, but these books can grow with your children. Our DVD series supply a fast-paced visual format for education, and we developed them with general audiences in mind. The Universe: A Journey Through God’s Grand Design will be available for preorder in October.

Take the time to go through Acts & Facts with your child and examine the critical information. In this issue, you’ll find articles on the floating forest hypothesis and God’s balanced ecosystem. Homo naledi has been in the news the past few years, and Brian Thomas points out the problems with evolutionary speculations on it. We answer the question “Can fish walk?” and look at how God equipped polar bears. Dr. Jake Hebert offers a fresh look at the Flood, plate tectonics, and Earth history. This issue is packed with information that reveals the deception of evolution and the evidence for creation.

We’re constantly expanding our resources and educational opportunities. Follow @ICRscience on any of the major social media platforms to get the most up-to-date information about what’s happening in our creation ministry. If you prefer to connect with us in person rather than online, we may be coming to your area this fall. ICR.org/events tells you where our seminars and conferences are planned.

We want to be a helpful resource for you as you seek to share God’s creation message with your kids. You have a few days left before they’re buried in books and school activities—take advantage of the time and really get them ready. Help your students begin the school year with confidence that God’s Word can be trusted in every area—including science and history.
