Why I Want to Have Seven Kids

I know people might say to themselves, are you nuts. Seven kids! That’s crazy. I know, I know, but most big dreams are. My big dream is to live on a ranch in the country somewhere with my big family, surrounded by love and light. That’s something the world wouldn’t be able to offer me.

Have you looked around lately and seen a specific verse being fulfilled, 2 Timothy 3:

 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

Well, as much as the devil will want me to think something like, why would I bring children into a world like that, I’m thinking, these children will be the light in darkness. They will light up my home, and then they will go out and light up the world, and bring many to God.

So my plan is to teach them the light of God’s word. Teach them good values; teach them to love, and raise happy healthy thriving kids, so far, so good. At present, I have two children, a daughter (almost 5) and a son (17 months), and I am a month pregnant.

Sometimes I get so scared and wonder, can I do this, do I have what it takes, but I guess I just need to remember God’s word in Matthew 6:25-34do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

And remember this verse is my everyday parenting, Deuteronomy 11: 18-21, Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the LORD swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

Pray for me my friends.
