Generations with Vision plans 2012 Family Economics Conference

Generations with Vision, a daily radio ministry that addresses cultural issues from a Biblical viewpoint featuring home school advocate, father of five and pastor Kevin Swanson as host is planning their Family Economics 2012 Conference for March 8 -10 at Wheaton College, 501 College Avenue, Wheaton, Illinois. This will be their third annual event; topics to be covered include:

  • Raising Sons to Provide
  • Household Budget Management
  • Marketing a Family Business
  • Facing the Onslaught of Socialism
  • Household Chores and Time Management
  • The Duties of Dominion
  • Keys to Being a Successful Family Entrepreneur
  • Stories from Successful Family Start-Ups
  • A Special Proverbs 31 Track for Moms

Speakers scheduled for the 2012 conference include Kevin Swanson, Erik Weir, Steve and Teri Maxwell, Bill Roth, Alex and Cassie Michael, and RC Sproul Jr.  A full schedule of events can be found here.  


In March of 2010, over 800 attendees gathered in Castle Rock, Colorado from over 30 states and 3 countries to attend the very first conference of its kind: the 2010 Family Economics conference. Not a homeschooling conference, worldview symposium, or financial seminar, the Family Economics Conference takes on the socialism of our day head on with a full-orbed biblical approach to family and family economics.

In March of 2011, Generations hosted another packed-out Family Economics conference in Raleigh, NC. The conference was filled to the brim with speakers, vision, and practical panels for the family economy. Speakers included Doug Phillips, Stephen Beck, Kevin Swanson, Scott Brown, RC Sproul Jr, Erik Weir, and many more!



The Liberty Day Celebration is described as “a dramatic reenactment of the 2nd Virginia Convention” and “has been hosted annually in the Chicago area for homeschool families for over 10 years.” You can learn more about the Liberty Day event at the Liberty Day Foundation’s website: LibertyDay.net.

Lodging for the event has been arranged with Fairfield Inn and Suites with a limited quantity of rooms at a discounted price of $64.00 per night. Attendees are advised to make reservations soon by calling 630-577-1820 and asking for the special “Family Economics” rate.

This event looks to be one that all members of the family will enjoy, learn and benefit from, plus remember for a lifetime.

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…

What on earth was Roy Moore thinking?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I saw this tweet repeating a comment reported by the LA Times that Roy Moore made at a campaign rally last September when one of his supporters asked him when he thought the last time America was "great:"
"I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction." (Taken from Roy Moore: Last Time America was 'Great" was During 'Slavery'; Newsweek, 12.7.2017) I realize this is being presented out of context and sensationalized, but really, folks, what on earth was Roy Moore thinking when he said it?  Regardless of how foolish making such a comment is during a public campaign event for a national office, it's just plain wrong.

My father's family is from the south - we can trace our ancestry back to the War for Independence with our family patriarch Capt. John Somers possibly serving under George Washington at …
