The Bright Lights conference at the Creation Museum was a climax to our recent Bright Lights conference trip.

IMG_5159_2 Our team of leaders, taking advantage of the beautiful picturesque grounds.

Below are a few examples of ways we saw God working and answering prayer at this conference.

-Just a week and a half previously, a man designed and donated a Bright Lights registration sign (as seen in the registration pictures on the slide show) and delivered it to us at our conferences in Virginia. It was a wonderful addition to our registration booth outside the museum. God provided at just the right time. My dad says you might call it a “sign from God.” 🙂

-A family from Wisconsin planned a week long family trip many months ago to Ohio, intending to spend several days of that week at the Creation Museum. The mother had also wanted to come to a Bright Lights Conference sometime but had not been able to work it out to come to any previous conferences. This mother told us that she began praying that a Bright Lights Conference would be planned somewhere within driving distance of the museum during that same week since they had that time available. A few days before they left, she checked our website and found that there would be a Bright Lights Conference right at the museum itself the first day they were there!

-The weather was beautiful, allowing us to do the small groups in the outside gardens and pavilions.

-Our whole team of leaders stayed at a guest house on the museum grounds. A few museum volunteers who were staying in the same location decided to get up at 5 AM to make a pancake breakfast for our entire staff. This was completely unexpected and very much appreciated!

-Although unexpected complications could have developed from running a conference at a location where there’s already so much going on, the whole day went smoothly. From registration, to the main sessions, to the small groups outside, everything stayed on schedule, and there was an enthusiastic spirit among everyone.

-One mother gave four extra planetarium tickets to Nickie, asking her to pass them on to anyone who could use them. Praying that God would direct her to the right family, Nickie approached a mom with two daughters in the main hall and offered them the free tickets. They joyfully thanked her, and as they were walking away the mom said to the smiling little girl, “See? God gave you the desire of your heart!”

-Many girls indicated on their response forms that they made commitments to spend time in God’s Word every day, to honor their parents, to keep a clear conscience, to minister to their brothers and sisters, to keep themselves pure from polluting influences, and to be strong for the Lord in their youth.

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” Psalm 145:3-4


  1. Again, great pictures! It makes me miss all of you…:-( That conference was so much fun! Definitely worth all of the work (and practically sleepless nights for many). The Lord blessed abundantly!

    Oh, and I giggled when I saw that you had a picture of me on the phone. I was talking with Lilly and asking her how many pairs of shoes she brought on the trip. 🙂 We have too much fun with odd statistics!

  2. Hello Grace!

    Lovely photos and the prayer requests were so very encouraging! We would like to go to Creation Museum sometime soon, Lord willing! Thanks for the update, Grace!

    May the Lord bless you and your family richly!

  3. I was so encouraged to read this wonderful report!! It sounds like you had such a great time–I would have loved to have been a part of it. Maybe sometime if you ever make it back down here to MS, huh??
    Love and blessings to you all~

  4. Hello Mally Family, What an awesome day it was to spend that time alone with my daughter, entrenched in God’s Word, with all of you! Thank you for being spent for the sake of the gospel. We left glowing from your radiant lights and encouraged to stand strong in the Lord. Since being home, we have had some time to go over our questionaires together and humbly and expectantly shared our hearts with all that the Lord is teaching us. Thank you so much for being a spring board for that conversation! We are thrilled to start our upcoming homeschool year and getting to see how the Lord will use us both! In Christ, Cindy

  5. It was neat to see how the Lord worked that conference day out. Everything ran very smoothly- what a blessing!
    Thanks for posting the pictures! I had so much fun at that conference…and now I really miss being with the team! 🙁

  6. Hi Sarah, Grace and Nicki!

    We were so excited when we heard that Lindsay and Laura were going to be traveling with you! The Lord certainly blessed the conferences! We look forward to the next time that we will get to see you! Blessings!

  7. Aww, looks like you had a great time…I’m sure you did with Hannah on your teaching team. I am having lots of fun with her at our house these days. Would love to help with one of these conferences someday…maybe next year while we are in the U.S.
