Welcome to the Large Family Living page of Raising Arrows. You don’t have to be a large family to begin living like one. Shortly after the birth of my second child I adopted a large-family mentality and doing so has been one of the best things I ever did for running my household!
So, I welcome you into our home! It’s a little loud, a little crazy, but a whole lot of fun!
If you read nothing else on this page, please read this post:
Blessed by the Number of Children God has Given You
Why Do We Have So Many Children?
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Our Journey to Trusting God with Our Family Size ~ 4 part series
Note: When I wrote these posts, the word “quiverfull” had not yet been twisted into such an ugly concept. I do not wish to change the permalinks to these posts, but I do feel I must add a disclaimer here. Our family is not part of some religious cult that promotes abusive husbands and oppressed wives. We are simply followers of Christ, living in His Word, desiring to receive whatever blessings He may have in store for us. I pray that rings loud and clear as you read.
~Just for fun~
