Recently I had the honor of writing about my favorite group of animals (of course I mean creeping things) for Creation Illustrated Magazine! The article “The Creation of Creeping Things” was featured in the Fall 2016 Edition, Vol.23, No.3 which has just become available for purchase. You can subscribe or find out more about Creation Illustrated here: http://www.creationillustrated.com/
The article is about day 6 of the creation week (as told in the book of Genesis) and how the creeping things fit into the rest of God’s Creation. In the article, and in Creeping Things Ministries, we focus on how the design of these animals glorifies their infinitely wise Designer. If you are a reader of this blog, you will find the article to be very similar to what you see here and what we do in the Creeping Things Video Series.
I was also blessed to see that Creation Illustrated chose to use four of my photos in the article. I literally have thousands of photos of reptiles and amphibians that are not currently being put to good use, and I would much prefer them to be utilized in a God-honoring way.
They appropriately chose the Desert Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma platyrhinos), Blainville’s Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma blainvillii) the Copperhead Snake (Agkistrodon contortrix), and the Black Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus).
Creation Illustrated Magazine is also available for purchase at the Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, CA. Pick up a copy of Creation Illustrated today and check out the article on page 28.
Thanks for reading! To God be the glory forever Amen!
I am excited to see how God is using the Creeping Things Ministry and it was a tremendous blessing to be on the Creation in the 21st Century Show! Our purpose, whether it is in the Creeping Things DVD Series or in our live animal shows, is to steer your gaze at the creature so that you marvel at the handiwork of the Creator and praise Him!
During these interviews I was able to explain how these creeping creatures fit into God’s creation and to share that message with a national audience! Special thanks to producer/director Kyle Justice of Awesome Science Media for setting up these interviews.
The best video series I have seen on reptiles ever… If you have kids or teenagers interested in creeping things you will want to pick up this series…fun, funny and educational. We LOVED it! – Gina Black
I absolutely love the Creeping Things Video Series! Love it! Every episode is loaded with information and so entertaining. Kids love this stuff. But, this fabulous series is not just for kids. It’s for all ages. I’m a 53 year old mom and I love it! I never knew how to tell the difference between a virtually harmless scorpion and a dangerously venomous one. I do now. I grew up around lizards and never knew that the awesome Horned Toad (my fave) drank from the water gathered on its back… And the list goes on! Just amazing facts! Nathan, God has clearly gifted you with the ability to teach. And I praise God for you all, Nathan, Alma, Aiyana and Ian, and the work you are doing; teaching these amazing facts about these incredible creatures so that we look to and praise the Creator! I highly recommend this series! And, I pray God’s continued blessing on your work. Can’t wait for the next episodes! Keep ’em coming! – Toni Owens
The [Christmas] gift with the largest reaction from the kids. Hope the series will continue for next Christmas. – Phillip Dauben
Informative, engaging, and entertaining video series! Our family thoroughly enjoyed watching, especially since Nathan (with the assistance of his two children!) clearly articulates the amazing characteristics of the many under appreciated creeping creatures. We are really looking forward to future episodes! Highly recommended! – Keith Scott
My grandson was so excited. He’s been wanting these ever since he watched them at the [Creation and Earth History] museum. My grandboys LOVE Creeping Things! – June McGreevy
Creeping Things is an excellent and educational series for the whole family. My kids love seeing the real animals (me too) and learning their purpose as designed by God. I appreciate not having to worry about evolution being pushed on my children and am thrilled more videos are in the making! – Rhanda Smith
What a fantastic, creative, educational and more importantly, Biblical series. Creeping Things is like the Discovery Channel meets Biblical reality. This series is not only refreshing for our society, it’s great for kids ages 0-105 (and up). It’s a blessing for the purpose of Soli Deo Gloria (for the glory of God). – Cody Hug
Awesome videos! What a refreshing look at God’s amazing creation! My boys love these videos tons!! Us too! Very informative and educational as well! – Kaitlyn Owens
Our kids loved the videos! They even chose the creeping things video over the Bernstein Bears! That is saying a lot! – Amber de la Motte
Personally, being from Florida… most of our creeping things are poisonous thus I am not the biggest fan; however after watching The Creeping Things Video Series, it gave me a new perspective on God’s creatures that creep along the ground! This series was educational and entertaining, I would suggest it to anyone… both those who enjoy creeping things and those who don’t, because either way… your appreciation for that which God has created will grow after watching this video series! I know mine did! Glory to God! – Steven Policastro Jr.
Inexpensive, an awesome series, kids will love it, and even adults will learn in a fun an intriguing way! Why allow your kids to watch what the networks think they should watch, when they can learn while having fun?!? – Jd Johnson
The Creeping Things film series was a hit for our family movie night! It was a blessing to see our son connect God’s Word with His workmanship through these exciting, educational and fun-filled animal adventures! Thank you Creeping Things for your partnership in ministry and for using your God given talents to encourage future generations of Biblical truths. We are excited about future Creeping Things programs at the Creation & Earth History Museum and look forward to educating more people through God’s created creatures. – Jayson Payne
My family loves Creeping Things! We have purchased all three DVDs. The DVDs really bring to my grandchildren’s attention that there is even a purpose for the creation of creepy things and the expression on my grandchildren’s face when they hear that truth is priceless. Thank you Creeping Things for your faithfulness to the Lord and spreading truth too many! – Stacey and Joe Gaona
The “Creeping Things” video series is fun and exciting, taking you into the field for an up-close look. I love the fact that throughout the DVDs his family plays an integral part in the exploration and discovery. I recently invited Nathan onto my television program, Creation in the 21st Century, where he spoke about reptiles and other creatures, even bringing live animals onto the set! Nathan is a knowledgeable guy with a sincere heart for sharing God’s awesome creations. – David Rives
Thank you, Nathan, Alma, Aiyana, Ian for an incredible 4 weeks of Creeping Things! I thank the Lord He’s equipped you, Nathan, with the ability to clearly, articulately shed some light on these amazing critters. Your sessions were not only filled with info, they were quite entertaining as well. Really enjoyed this series. The Designer of these critters is clearly the focus of your work. I praise God for you all. Praying his continued blessing on this work. – Prospect Avenue Baptist Church
The Creeping Things DVD program focuses on insects, arachnids, reptiles, amphibians, and anything else that creeps upon the ground and where they fit into God’s Creation. Each episode is a showcase of the glory, power, and genius of the Master Designer. We can’t wait to see how the Lord is going to use this series!
Episode 1: Underappreciated Creepers – This episode focuses on the creatures of this world that people tend to overlook or dismiss and how there is much to be learned from them.
Episode 2: Desert Creepers – This episode is all about the creeping things that inhabit the deserts of the southwest.
Episode 3: California Creepers – This episode showcases the iconic creeping creatures that call California their home.
Creeping Things is a DVD series hosted by me, Nathan Hutcherson. Join me and my two children as we explore the great outdoors, hunting down every animal that creeps on the ground, and showcasing God’s incredible creation. Come explore God’s wondrous creation and encounter all kinds of creeping things in the wild.
In each episode we find a myriad of fascinating creeping creatures such as: reptiles, amphibians, insects, and arachnids. These amazing, but often overlooked creatures display design features and behaviors that point to their Creator’s genius, foresight, power, creativity, and care. We want to steer your gaze at the creature so that you marvel at the handiwork of the Creator and praise Him!
