HSLDA’s @home e•vents program showcases speakers who are experts in their fields and often leaders in the homeschool community. They’ve been in your shoes and want to come alongside you in your journey to enhance your family’s homeschooling experience! Our speakers possess the breadth of experience, talent, and enthusiasm suited for encouraging you and equipping you with relevant tools.
Past e•vents have included presentations by well-known authors and speakers, such as Andrew Pudewa, Lou Priolo, Dr. Jay Wile, Jeff Myers, and Hal and Melanie Young, as well as experienced homeschooling parents and homeschool graduates. HSLDA staff speakers have included President J. Michael Smith, Chairman Michael P. Farris, many other attorneys, and some of our Special Needs, High School, and Early Years coordinators, such as Dianne Craft, Vicki Bentley, Becky Cooke, and Diane Kummer.
Dr. Tommy Mitchell has been a speaker and writer for Answers in Genesis since 2005. He has degrees in cell biology and biochemistry, as well as a medical degree. Once an evolutionist, now a creationist, he feels extremely passionate about sharing the vital creation/gospel message with the world, especially with influential teens.
Why Can't a Day Mean a Day?
Pseudoscience and speculation are creeping into the Church! Are Christians conceding their beliefs to a worldview based on millions of years of evolution? Do the hypotheses of secular science align with the teachings of Scripture, or are they slowly undermining God's authority? Millions of years require millions of compromises on the part of Christians. Know that you can trust the Bible and its redemptive truth.
