Not to many...

Is the name of one of my friends blogs (she has 9 children) and probably what Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are telling people after the birth of Jordyan-Grace who's number 18!

Sometimes I wrestle with the thought perhaps we should have/of had more children -- 4 seems like at lot at times and yet when I see other large families I don't think so.

What's amazing is how many people who are pro-choice show their true colors over this and the fact that they are really only pro-choice if the choice is not to have more than 1 or 2! Children are a heritage from the Lord and I am convinced that He is quietly raising up a mighty army through homeschoolers and those who have large families. Godly offspring is something He desires (see Malachi).

Hey - is that friend me? Do you read my blog? ::snort::

It is interesting isn't it that pro-choice stops with 1.8 children?

I certainly have never felt that all Christians should hold my convictions.

I do agree with you that God loves godly offspring and I believe he's raising up a revivial that will start with the generation of children we are all raising. I've met several who are determined to go into politics, journalism, social work, ministry...and I'm encouraged when I look to this generation. I love our youth (teens).
