About this Episode
Do your children know that God created the heavens and the earth? In Part 1 of this vital conversation, Ken Ham shares why it is crucial for kids to know that God created the universe–-and them. Ken discusses the importance of teaching this biblical worldview from a young age and reinforces the fundamental role of homeschooling in shaping a child’s faith. Zan and Ken discuss the incredible work behind the renowned Creation Museum, the Ark Encounter, and the impact the life-sized ark is having in the lives of millions.

At BJU Press Homeschool, we’re committed to providing children an education from a biblical worldview that is academically sound and challenges them to advance, think critically, and live like Christ. This type of education is not often possible in public schools because of the number of children taught in a classroom, a difference in worldview, and peer and societal pressure to conform. Homeschooling allows parents to instruct and disciple their children without daily fighting messages from an opposing worldview taught in the classroom. And with tuition costs and fees for private schooling or tutoring, homeschooling may be the only option for parents who are concerned for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
