(Highlights of Alan & Suzanne Osmond’s talks at “Raise the Standard” event in Phoenix, AZ
with Glenn Beck, David Barton and many others. 10/11/13)
When my brothers and I were very young, my Mother and Father had some special sweaters made for us with an insignia embroidered on them which read, “Altiora Petimus“, which in Latin means, “We Seek Higher Things”. We were taught well by a kind, caring and hard working Father and a tender and loving, highly educated Mother. Little did we know that now we would be reminding the world that in order to solve many of life’s problems, one must “Raise The Standard” of Life.
As far as standards go today, wherever you look, “Satan now has control. He is guiding the governments as far as the Lord will permit him. That is why there is so much strife, turmoil, confusion all over the earth. One master mind is governing the nations; it is Satan himself.”
We seem to have thrown out all the good things that God has given us. The Ten Commandments are not looked at as ‘The Ten Suggestions’! Our day of prayer and prayer in school is gone. Did you know that when Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, a prayer of thanks to God was offered? But someone decided it should not be broadcasted!!! Hmmm?
Our morals as a people have changed. Just because “Everybody is doing it” . . . DOESN’T mean it is right! We grieve at the sharply declining numbers of births and marriages. The breakdown of the family is the cause of all our problems.
We need to put the family back into solid homes with a mother and a father. We need fathers to be MEN of integrity and to provide and protect their families; “have the guts to be their creation; …everywhere in every nation, be a family. Men need to be men. Love their wives and never leave them. Raise their kids ’cause they conceived them. BE MEN!”
We believe in our origin and destiny as children of God – Where we came from, Why we are here, and Where we are going.
We are respectful of the religious beliefs of all people, even of those increasing numbers who profess no belief in God. We know that through the God-given power of choice, many will hold beliefs contrary to ours, but we are hopeful that others will be equally respectful of our religious beliefs and understand that our beliefs compel us to some different choices and behaviors other than theirs. For example, we believe that sexual relations should occur ONLY between a man and a woman who are married.
We are distressed that 41 percent of all births in the United States are born outside of marriage.
Cohabitation now precedes 60 percent of marriages and about 50 percent of teenagers stating that out-of-wedlock childbearing was a “worthwhile lifestyle.”
There are many political and social pressures for legal and policy changes which have already authorized same-gender marriages in various states and nations.
Our policies are determined by the truths God has identified as unchangeable!
We believe “in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.” But, man’s laws cannot make moral . . . what God has declared Immoral!
Some things that we are missing today is in teaching our children how to work, to get a good education, and to show respect for one’s parents. To pray, obey laws and to not cheat. For some, that includes entitlement.
I recently wrote a letter to Bill O’Reilly after watcing his show about “The decline of the American Family. I said, “THANK YOU BILL, for having the guts to tell the truth about The Family and the reasons we are having so many problems today! You hit the nail right on the head when you spoke about the responsibility we have as individuals and parents and in getting down to the bottom line which is … “IF THE FAMILY DISINTEGRATES . . . WE ARE OVER!”
WE ARE ALMOST THERE!
Mr. O’Reilly reported that a young man named Christopher Lane was recently MURDERED by three boys that shot him dead.
The three boys were from chaotic families and this is why violent crimes seem to plague the USA. It is the BREAKDOWN OF THE FAMILY, . . . NOT GUNS,… NOT DERILIC LAW ENFORCEMENT,… NOT ANYTHING ELSE! The violence is largely committed by young men of all colors, often abandoned by fathers, and brought up in squandering chaos, and then they act out in savage ways.
Lets look at who there were:
One teenager was 16 years old and had a history of truancy and school violence. He was living with an aunt and uncle but asked to leave that house because of his chronic marijuana use. His stepfather died of a motorcycle accident, his 25 year old half brother is dead, his father unknown, and his mother not caring for him. He had NO JOB, . . . he just “hung around”.
The 17 year old was charged as a juvenile with an accessory to first degree murder. He drove the getaway car after the killing. He lived with his grandparents with less than two years of schooling before he dropped out. He did not have a job. He impregnated a 16 year old girl and two years after his arrest, he gave birth to a baby boy.
There was a 15 year old boy that lived with his father, his mother was in prison on a drug charge. His father also had a criminal record. He was charged with murder as an adult. He was in a gang that just smoked pot and played violent video games. Note: Jack Thompson says, “In every school shooting, we find that kids who pull the trigger are video gamers.”
Jack Thompson has been trying to raise the standard and heavily criticized a number of video games and campaigned against their producers and distributors. His basic argument is that violent video games have repeatedly been used by teenagers as “murder simulators” to rehearse violent plans. He has pointed to alleged connections between such games and a number of school massacres.
Jack also claims that scientific studies show teenagers process the game environment differently from adults, leading to increased violence and copycat behavior. So be careful what you watch, listen to, and read! You become what you think about!
Largely, unsupervised teen age boys are running wild and it is happening everywhere in America. But rarely do you hear about the social destruction of The Family in the PRESS!
We need to tell the politicians to STOP THE NONSENSE and begin dealing with the real reason why we are a violent country! Out of control young people are NOW living in a time where drug use and legalization is celebrated, and having babies out of wedlock is a prestige item in some places. The powers that be are making ridiculous excuses for violent behavior ignoring the realists and the break down of The Family, perferring to BLAME GUNS and WEALTHY PEOPLE saying the solution to every thing is “WE NEED MORE MONEY”. Even though the USA has among the highest percentage of educational spending per student in the entire world!
Now days we don’t make judgements on personal behavior and the misguided among us who glorify unsocial acts that includes the callous and largely irresponsible ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY which makes billions of dollars from destructive music and film.
The brutal truth is that Christopher Lane was MURDERED FOR NO REASON!It was an evil act and we need to stop the madness, call out those who are responsible for violent behavior and that includes derelict parents who SHOULD BE ASHAMED! You brought children into the world and have CORRUPTED THEM. IT DOESN’T GET MUCH LOWER THAN THAT!
As we “Raise The Standard”, let’s not FORGET to also LOOK UP and give thanks to our God above who is watching over us and is anxiously awaiting our return home.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and will turn from their wicked ways, them I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin and head their land.”2 Chronicles 7:14
The event is meant to “unite individuals with likeminded beliefs who want to help raise the standard in all areas individually — and collectively make a difference”.
Entertainers and presenters will address raising the standard in a number of specific areas, including education, entertainment, parenting, values, self-reliance and health. These are areas“where there has been a breakdown and an erosion, which has, therefore, had a negative impact on society.”
Attendees will be encouraged “to take action and to begin a movement towards change, real change that comes from within, not something that is mandated by the government,” Genys said.
The event will begin Friday, Oct. 11, with a VIP lunch and meet and greet with David Barton, Alan and Suzanne Osmond, Glenn Kimber and other featured speakers.
Friday evening’s gala event will include musical performances and addresses by Beck, Barton and Kimber, along with an exciting lineup of other speakers. The gala will be held at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix. It begins at 5 p.m. for the preshow, followed by the main event at 6.
Beck is one of America’s leading multi-media personalities, whose quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality have made The Glenn Beck Program the third highest rated radio program in America.
Barton is the founder and president of Wall Builders, a national pro-family organization that emphasizes America’s moral, religious and constitutional heritage.
Kimber is the founder of Kimber Academy, an affordable private school “dedicated to teaching a love of learning, instilling a love of God, family and country while providing an outstanding academic education.” Kimber is also president of the Thomas Jefferson Center for Constitutional Studies.
Among the other presenters for the Friday gala will be Alan Osmond, the leader and eldest performer of the original Osmond Brothers; Bowers, who, with his family, produced the documentary called “AGENDA: Grinding America Down;” Nicholeen Peck, popular parenting expert and speaker; and Jim Sharpe, radio reporter and anchor. Also presenting will be Gilbert-resident, Sharon Slater, president of Family Watch International and well-known advocate for the family; Shane Krauser, founder and director of Gilbert-based American Academy for Constitutional Studies; Laurie Vukich, “The Healthy Beauty Coach” and others.
Attendees will also learn from Justin Rohner, Katherine Nelson, Leah Martineau, Nancy Genys, Pam Stevenson, Sam Sorbo, Sylvia Puente, Ted Hayes, Wendy DeWitt and more

“IF WE DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING, WE WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING!”
Why won’t they tell our children about how America was really founded?
These truths have been held back and not taught. Are we embarrassed about God?
We have taken Christianity and religion out of our children’s lives.
We have forgotten our Creator, our God!
Will God forget about us?
“Never can this or any other nation be safe under the leadership of arrogant, profane, puny little men without faith in God, no matter how much material or military power is put into their hands.
“Indeed the very assumption of such power except wisely directed under divine care could be the very power to destroy us. Would that we could again see a modern General George Washington who kneels at his Valley Forge, or see again through the half-open door into a modern Abraham Lincoln’s room in the White House the anguished form of a man kneeling in prayer and hear the low tones of that prayer:
“‘Oh, thou God that heard Solomon in the nigh when he prayed for wisdom, hear me. I cannot lead this people; I cannot guide the affairs of this nation without thy help. I am poor and weak and sinful. Oh God, who did hear Solomon when he cried for wisdom, hear me and save this nation’”
As the sun began to set on the Mediterranean, the audience started to take their seats in the Cesarea amphitheater. The crew had been setting up since 2am, but the staff was excited to see months of planning start to take shape. Meanwhile, Amy Holmes and Erick Stakelbeck were holding a GBTV pre-show from the beach.
The crowd of over 3,000 people came from all over the world and were joined by a global audience, like Alan Osmond, watching live from viewing parties and on GBTV!
After stirring music form Vernessa Mitchell, Glenn took the stage to a roaring ovation, welcoming viewers everywhere to Israel.
Glenn was soon joined on stage by esteemed historian David Barton, who told the story of the amphitheater and the biblical history that surrounded everyone in attendance. Barton told moving stories from biblical history and discussed the importance of the Jewish people to modern society. He also joined Glenn in co-hosting the event.
Dr. Mike Evans shares his incredible story with the crowd in Israel. His story truly shows what it means to have the courage to love and how to overcome pain and adversity to do so.
Passionate fans packed the amphitheater to show their support of Israel!
Rabbi Riskin joined Glenn on stage to specifically about courage and how it relates to God. “We have never been alone, we have always been together with God – from the time of His Covenant with father Abraham 4,000 years ago – and to be alone with God is to be with the majority of the One,” he told those in attendance.
Jon Voight, who will play a key role in the Restoring Courage event on 8/24, watched among the audience members.
Pastor John Hagee also spoke at the events, and his speech was a burst of energy that moved the audience to cheers and to tears. “I am an Israeli,” he passionately declared on stage. He promised that Christians around the world stood with the people of Israel. “All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Israel. Therefore as a free man, I take pride in the words – I am an Israeli.” (Watch A most powerful speech!)
Glenn returned to the stage to end the event. “We are not our governments,” he declared to the world. “We stand with you.” Glenn then invited many of the nights participants to make a public declaration of love and courage to the world. ”WE STAND WITH ISRAEL !”
After another roaring musical performance that had people on their feet and waving their hands, a firework display lit up the amphitheater to close out the first night of events for Restoring Courage!
We watched Glenn’s 2nd day event on Monday which was very educational and helped remove fear from those who are having a hard time in dealing with what happened to the killing of so many Jews. It was touching, informative, and made us realize that WE ALL are GOD”S CHILDREN. We must NEVER let what happened to the JEWS ever happen AGAIN!
“WE STAND WITH ISRAEL!”
“Ye stand this day all of you before the Lord your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel.”Deut 29:10
ALSO: “Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee.”Ps. 83: 1-5
