Support Day of Mourning

Elizabeth Johnston, “the Activist Mommy”, is an activist vlogger, speaker, and author who educates and inspires the public on the burning social and moral issues of the day that are important to families. She and her husband Patrick, who is a medical doctor, author, and movie producer, have been pro-life ministry leaders for many years and home educate their 10 beautiful children. The growing threat to America’s children and the vicious attack on religious liberty is what dynamited Elizabeth out of her comfort zone to inspire a nation of belittled conservatives and Christians to “come out of their closets” and boldly take their country back. Elizabeth daily triggers the left by confronting the lies of abortion, feminism, Islam, and the homosexual agenda with wit and snark like only she can, and she regularly posts viral commentary videos which have netted over 70 million views. Elizabeth has been featured on many major media outlets, such as Fox & Friends, The New York Times, The Blaze and Christian Broadcasting Network, as she has become a thought leader on topics of importance to families. The pulse behind all her activism and cultural commentary is her love for her family and her Savior, Jesus Christ.

Join Yvette and Dr. Scott Hardin as they discuss whether faith and science are compatible.

In this episode, Yvette and Karen talk about Getting Real! As homeschool moms, it’s often difficult to share our struggles as we try to live up to the “perfect” homeschool mom that we imagine everyone else to be.

Karen DeBeus is a homeschooling mom learning to live more simply and keep God at the center of it all. She is the author of three best-selling homeschooling books and writes at Simply Living for Him. She speaks nationally at homeschooling conventions and recently was a speaker at the Family Bible Conference in Washington, DC. Her passion is to help others clear the clutter from their lives, seek God first, and to encourage women and families to get in the Word every day.

In 2016, she founded the Simply Living for Him Retreat, which is a time of rest and renewal for all women seeking Jesus. She enjoys life on her hobby farm with her husband and four children. Together they are a work-at-home family pursuing a simple life with purpose and, above all, seeking to glorify God in all they do.

Join Yvette and Steven Policastro as they discuss practical ways to use museums in your homeschool. Museums are a great way to point your kids to Jesus and have fun in the process. Below you will find links to recommended museums, documentaries, The Creation Trail museum app, and National Homeschool Day.

Steven lives in Orlando, Florida and has spent over two decades helping transform his community while impacting the world for the cause of Christ, including a high-profile career at the United States House of Representatives in Washington, DC.

"At age four, I learned that God created the universe and all it contains in six days, plus that I needed Jesus to rescue me from my sins. Then at age fifteen, I learned that I needed a relationship with Jesus. That is when He turned my head-knowledge into heart-knowledge… Jesus is so very generous, He can give you a new heart, too! Today, Jesus continues to conform me more into His likeness each and every day. I look forward to sharing in this adventure with you!" -Steven

Steven's professional life takes him on journeys throughout the world as Founder/COO of The International Association for Creation. The International Association for Creation is a global umbrella organization serving biblical worldview museums and ministries. Steven and his team provide strategic guidance, logistics management, and tactical support to thousands of leaders around the world. Steven founded the ministry in 2012, simply by praying with a friend at his local church for a creation science museum on the other side of the continent, since then God has continued to bless their team's work in all corners of the world.
