In the beginning God Created…

TruthSeekers Foundation and its partners share a love of all that God has created. All of the people on Earth are the sons and daughters of God, and all have a story to tell.

TruthSeekers Foundation is open to all Seekers of Truth, regardless of religious background.

The family is the core unit of society and the best place to learn principles of truth. Through TruthSeekers Academy, we empower parents to teach faith-based principles of truth to their homeschooling children.

Based on the Universal Model, our homeschooling curriculum will help youth develop rock-solid foundations in sciences, history, and other essential subjects that complement your traditional values and religious convictions.

TruthSeekers Academy is the repository of workbooks and curriculum authored primarily by Heidi Barlow and built partly on the Universal Model. The intent is to develop a robust curriculum for families and those who want to learn and teach Biblically-sound subjects, including Science, History, English, Math, and other courses designed to help strengthen the traditional family unit, and instill sound faith in the Bible and sacred history.

Discovery Forum will provide opportunities to bring together resources from a variety of Christian groups, including education conferences for homeschool students and parents in Utah and the Midwest (Nauvoo area). These will help parents re-learn some traditional ways of teaching their families.

DF will also seek to have a presence in key locations to provide “Discovery Den” learning experiences for young learners to help them recognize the hand of the Creator in Nature.

DF will seek short, robust video education clips to provide learning opportunities across an extremely wide range of subjects, each coinciding with TruthSeekers Academy curriculum and each designed to testify of Christ and His work in some way.

TruthSeekers Adventures provides hands-on tours, and excursions to experience Creation and His-story first hand. More than just a vacation, TruthSeekers Adventures provide unique, spirit-filled opportunities to learn things very few get to experience!

You will learn the true science behind the Earth’s major events, such as Noah’s Flood—science you will find nowhere else! TruthSeekers Adventures brings together science and history in a very unique way to show God’s Covenant; an experience you won’t want to miss!

If a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth one million, what’s the value of several days of first-hand experience on a UM GeoTour?

No textbook can imitate the adventure of personal exploration and first-hand discovery. The immense catastrophic power of the Flood and the full gravity of the hundreds of Universal Model discoveries can only be fathomed as we step away from our screens and touch nature with our own fingers.

These tours consist primarily of excursions into Nature for the purpose of testifying of the Creator by examining and understanding Creation, the Universal Flood, and their significance in our lives. Dean Sessions is an integral part of these tours as author of the Universal Model.

We offer educational tours to some of the most majestic and spectacular geological sites in the country and around the world. Join us for our upcoming tours and begin to experience the Universal Model with your own eyes.

This group includes tours manifesting and testifying of the Savior and His covenant with mankind. It includes Church, American, and World history. Hannah Stoddard is an integral part of these tours as well as other guest guides, including Robert Wright.
