As I skim thru the thoughts of Chris Jeub, I can relate to many of his convictions and I agree with most of his points. I enjoy advice from large families, after all, large families understand each other as no other family does.
Family is the driving force of our existence in this world. We belong to a family. Our family, The family of God, a heavenly family, A church family. Life is about family. There is power in a family. I believe the downfalls of the world began with the downfall of family. Perhaps if we listened to God very closely, He will tell us what we need to know about family. He will guide us to scripture which talks about family and He will restore family.
I admire people like the Jeubs who go against the stream and followed Gods call on their life. They are seen as unconventional and strange. But really.... are they?
I pray I can extend my family, perhaps I will never have 15 but even if I did....
