For those of you who have read any of my other posts, you know my heart for children. I LOVE huge families with all their sweet children in tow. God says that it is a blessing to have a quiver full! Our culture tries to define "full". It plans when life should begin and even, in some cases, when it should end. A sweet friend of mine sent me a link discussing how birth control has altered our culture and changed our thinking on life. It is very interesting to read the cultural beliefs and responses. I challenge you to read it yourself. I hope that you allow your belief system to be challenged and I pray God speaks to you personally.
I had to laugh out loud when reading some responses to questions asked of large families. A couple of my favorites were:
When being stared at...
"No, we don't try to overpopulate the earth, just outnumber the idiots!"
Don't you know what causes that?
"Yes, we do know what causes that and we like it very much, thank you!"

Enjoy and allow yourself to be challenged!!!!
