Bird egg designs.

Not all eggs are the same; they come in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes.

Robins have oval eggs that fit nicely in their dish-shaped nest.

Screech owls have round-shaped eggs that lie at the bottom of a hole in a tree.

Birds like the Killdeer have eggs that are sharply pointed allowing them to pivot on their small end. This is the perfect design for this bird because the Killdeer’s nest is on bare ground, and round eggs could roll away.

The common Murre nests on a sea cliff ledge and lays their eggs on bare rock ledges. The egg’s oblong shape prevents it from rolling off the ledge because when pushed or nudged, it can only roll in a circle.

Eggs that are hidden away are usually pale or a solid color, while eggs laid out in the open are spotted, blotchy, and camouflaged.

There are more than 9,000 species of birds in the world. Think of all the variety of eggs! Eggs are not just “happy coincidences”, but they reveal the hand of the Creator that designed their perfect shapes, sizes, and colors to fit into their nurseries – details preprogrammed into the creation to allow birds to fill all sorts of different environmental niches.1

For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.

Psalm 86:10

Our Mission

We exist to glorify and honor God by equipping Christians to diligently “go and make disciples” and contend for the faith with gentleness and respect—in a morally and spiritually bankrupt culture.

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you.

Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?

In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.”
(Job 7-10)
