There is a common perception that the teaching of religion, particularly Christianity, is not allowed in public schools. The most common reason for this is the separation of church and state. But many states not only allow it, they require it as part of their curriculum.
For example, in the state of California, sixth grade students are expected to: “Note the origins of Christianity in the Jewish Messianic prophecies, the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as described in the New Testament, and the contribution of St. Paul the Apostle to the definition and spread of Christian beliefs (e.g., belief in the Trinity, resurrection, salvation).”
Today on Educate For Life, Kevin’s guest is Eric Bueher. Eric is the president of Gateways For Better Education. As a former public school teacher, Eric Buehrer can relate to both sides of the religion-in-schools debate. He writes and lectures extensively on the subject of religion and public education. His audiences include parents, teachers, school administrators, school board members, college students, and churches.
Join Kevin and Eric for an insightful conversation on the connection between religion and public schools. Whether you are a teacher or a parent, we hope this conversation will both inform you and encourage you. If you want to learn more about Gateways To Better Education, check out http://gtbe.org.

Danny Ray has figured out how to marry his passion for illusion and slight of hang with sharing his Christian faith. As Danny says, “My passion is to empower people to “run a better race” in life. I do this through making people laugh, and blowing their minds with unique illusions.”

In a sequel to last week’s episode on moms, Kevin has two special guests on the show. Their names are Missy Robertson and Kimberley Fletcher. Being mothers themselves, they understand how difficult raising children can be but believe that it is the most important role women have.
Missy Robertson is the wife of Jase Robertson and has learned to live life in the spotlight as she plays an important part in her family’s record-breaking reality television series, Duck Dynasty. Despite the increased publicity on her family, company and personal life, she has become a strong voice for morality and virtue both locally and globally. Missy is a devoted mother of three children who focuses on having a strong, happy and loving family. She also runs her own jewelry business and is the ultimate working mom.
Kimberly Fletcher is an Air Force wife, mother of 8 children and president and founder of Homemakers for America (founded 2004). She is also the author of the book WOMEN: America’s Last Best Hope, and a contributing writer with The Blaze and Townhall.com. Labeled by the media as “an unabashed America-loving homemaker,” Kimberly has made it her personal mission to educate and inspire the women of America to realize their immeasurable worth and powerful influence on society simply by being who they are.
These two women shatter the modern perception that women need to be outside of the home in order to be influential. Rather, they both believe that the greatest power a woman has to influence a culture is by being a mother.Tune in to Educate For Life to hear a great discussion. You don’t want to miss it.
Being a modern mom is difficult. There is increasing pressure on women to get out of the home by getting a good education and getting a high-paying job. While these are great things, new research suggests that these are not the most important things for women. Surprisingly, being a parent and being involved with their children rank the highest. So how does the modern mom juggle all these priorities?
Kevin’s guest today is Candy Carson. She is the wife of Dr. Ben Carson, presidential candidate and current Director of HUD. Candy is also a mom. She knows first-hand the importance of being a mom and raising children. She will share her valuable experience.
Candy is also involved in the Mom’s March For America, taking place in Omaha, Nebraska. The goal of the Moms March is to shine a light on the powerful influence of mothers on our nation and come together to stand for decency, truth, family, freedom, and the constitution that protects our divine rights as mothers. They hope to counter the cultural pressure on women that says women should not focus on being moms.

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin’s guest is Dr. Lawrence Krauss. Prof. Lawrence M. Krauss is an internationally known theoretical physicist with wide research interests, including the interface between elementary particle physics and cosmology, where his studies include the early universe, the nature of dark matter, general relativity and neutrino astrophysics. He has investigated questions ranging from the nature of exploding stars to issues of the origin of all mass in the universe.
He received undergraduate degrees in both Mathematics and Physics at Carleton University. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1982), then joined the Harvard Society of Fellows (1982-85). He joined the faculty of the departments of Physics and Astronomy at Yale University as assistant professor in 1985, and associate professor in 1988. In 1993 he was named the Ambrose Swasey Professor of Physics, Professor of Astronomy, and Chairman of the department of Physics at Case Western Reserve University.
Currently, he is a Professor of Physics at Arizona State University and is Director of the Origins Project. As planned, Origins will become a national center for research and outreach on origins issues, from the origins of the universe, to human origins, to the origins of consciousness and culture.
With years of study and scientific knowledge, Dr. Krauss thinks it’s more likely than not that there is no God and that the Universe came from nothing. Dr. Krauss and Kevin will discuss this issue and you will get to hear a view you might not always get to hear.
