What is this “shift in consciousness” everyone is talking about? It is the human being awakening from unconscious behavior to conscious behavior. But it is far more than behavior. It goes to the very core of what you are. Join evidential medium and spiritual teacher Suzanne Giesemann for a magical, mystical look at the two levels of reality and how you as a soul flow within both of them.

Learn how you can accelerate your personal shift and live consciously, including Suzanne’s proven seven-step method for making the connection with higher consciousness.

Minimum donation of $25 per person collected at the door.

Russ Miller is the only full time creation science speaker in Arizona and is now in his 18th year. His web site is: There is a full time creation scientist in Arizona - Dr. Kevin Anderson, who runs the Creation Research Society lab just north of Chino Valley, and can be reached at 928-636-1153. His web site is The difference being that a creation speaker is primarily a communicator of the science that supports the Biblical accounts of creation and the global flood, and a creation scientist is primarily doing research, writing and field work on these evidences (like digging up over 50 dinosaur bones and examining the soft tissue, red blood cells and DNA in them, showing that they are less than 1,000 years old.)

As well as speaking at churches, camps and conferences, Russ Miller shares this information on all day creation tours of the Grand Canyon, where he shows proof that the global flood created the Grand Canyon in only days, and not the millions of years, as we are told. He shows where the strata layers that have been deposited by the flood meets the creation rock, or where judgment meets creation as he likes to say.

This trip is the best way to learn creation science. There is a trip leaving from Prescott at 8 a.m. and returning at 7 p.m. on May 26, and another one on Sep. 8. To get more information on these trips or to sign up, contact David McNabb at 928-771-1218 or
