Reasons We Have a Large Family

In no particular order:

1. When God said, "Behold, children are a gift of the Lord...Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them (Psalm 127)", we believe He meant it.

2. World domination.

3. We know what causes it.

Amen and amen!! You could also add that you are doing your part to support Social Security in the future!! No children means that no one is paying into social security in the future. Of course, we no that our security is not in any government entity!!

I love it! And I agree with every single one. And seriously did Obama say that? That's awful. How about teaching them abstinence before marriage instead of acting like it's something done to them?

Anyways, I especially like #6. It's funny what people think just because I have more than 2 kids.

Hear!! Hear!! My hubby and I totally agree but then again I guess that is what makes our two families friends!! And what's wrong with knowing what causes it...ok I won't go there. We all just LOVE being married and having a house full of kids!! Poor Obama and Poor Mrs. Obama...poor poor poor pitiful shallow creatures. We all know that one day even they will BOW AT THE KING'S FEET! whether they want to or not!! Lori

Just found your blog and look forward to reading more.

We had 10 bio. children, and thought we were "done". But, last spring we brought home 3 siblings from Ghana.

We are also a Jesus loving, homeschooling, family.

You're right, you do have cute kids. That's a good reason in our book to have more.

Seriously, this is a terrific list. What wonderful gifts from God children are. We are so blessed to have five and another on the way.
