The Jeub Family — Cheaper by the Baker’s Dozen

Parents to 14 children Chris & Wendy Jeub are convinced that the downturn in the economy should NOT limit the calling God has for families. Their lives are living proof as they claim to “live like kings” while maintaining a frugal budget. The Jeub grocery budget is under $700/month (feeding 12 children at home, mind you!), they homeschool on a single income, and they live in a modest mountain home. Their secrets are available to families of all sizes!

For homeschool families, come to watch Lydia Jeub (age 13) perform her nationally qualified expository speech on amateur movie making. You may or may not know, but the only nationally recognized homeschool extracurricular activity is speech and debate, and the Jeubs are on their way to compete at the National Tournament in Birmingham, Alabama. Chris has written extensively on this most exciting activity and the entire Jeub family have been involved since HSLDA started the league 11 years ago. The Jeubs are open to questions after Lydia delivers her Expos.

Chris and Wendy were featured on Discovery Channel’s “Kids by the Dozen” series in 2007. The family of 16 live in Monument, Colorado, where Wendy homeschools and Chris runs an academic nonprofit ministry. The Jeubs wrote Love in the House: Filling your home with the greatest commandment in response to the numerous questions about their lifestyle, and Wendy has just recently come out with a cookbook on affordable meals for growing families. Chris and Wendy are traveling through the Midwest on their way to the national homeschool speech tournament in Birmingham and have stopped to share with us.
