What do I Think about Birth Control and Having More Babies?

We are frequently asked some questions about the number of kids we have, why we had so many, how old we were, and the big one: what we think about birth control. And I’m here to say that I won’t tell you! But I do have a lot to say about it having babies and what the Lord says about children, so listen in today.

Our God is Mighty to Save!

It takes a lot of work to train our children, and while we spend a lot of our time and mental energy focusing on it, there is a point where we can forget whose job it really is to save our kids.  We can wear ourselves out and forget that God is mighty to save, and it’s His job to begin with! So relax, Mom.  Do your best in training and remember that our great God created your children for His glory.  HE is mighty to save! He’s good like that. :)
