    Addis Abbaba.

  • Uncle David

    Twenty seven soon to be blessings you and your siblings have brought me. How absolutely wonderful. You have brightened my life beyond your imagination, but sadden me to think about what my brother has missed never knowing his grandchildren.

    Bonnie sends her congratulations too and asks, “What colors would you like for the nursery quilt?”

    Much love,
    Uncle David

  • Joe & Judy C.

    Hey Wendy :)
    If you had a picture with you on it here I’d be checking those wrists for a bracelet….even before you told the good news…:) :)
    Happy for you two and whole family!
    You are exceedingly blessed! :)

  • Wanda

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you all!
    May God bless your pregnancy and delivery with His amazing peace!

  • Amy

    Praise the Lord for the miracle and blessing of another child! We had a rather Jeubish celebration at our house today, using your turkey sandwich recipe and a homemade pinata. It was the actual birthday of our 8th child, Sabrina. We didn’t have 150, but we did manage 65, most being under the age of 10. Our 10 year old planned his own treasure hunt complete with treasure maps and “pots of gold” which were really giant monster cookies as the treasure. We live up in Steamboat Springs and our kiddos would love to meet your kiddos (the parents would like to meet you all as well). They are hoping you take us up on our invitation and come visit sometime. To add some interesting info, we moved to Colorado in 2001 from Fargo, ND. While living there and attending many homeschool conventions, we met the Heppners. At the time we only had 6 children. They were an inspiration to us then, and continue to be even still. Her organizational guides are fabulous! Anyway, we watched your program and thought it was rather like watching a home video of our own family. Our kids range from 10 months to 15 (our twins).

    And to extend the invitation again, we would love to host your entire family for a weekend, a week, whatever your little hearts desire. May the Lord be gracious to you and continue to bless you all richly as you raise your children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.

    Lord Bless,
    ~Amy Pederson (for the entire Pederson clan)

  • Kim

    WOW! I’m so sorry we missed hearing the news in person! Our family is thrilled for you! We just found out Sat. that we’re having a boy – woo hoo! Wendy, I’ll be praying for you!

  • neysha

    Oh how wonderful congrats! Praying for a wonderful pregancy.

  • Charity

    Hooray!!! We too, are expecting! We are trusting that God knows how many children we need and the plans that He has for our family much more than we do and are blessed to receive each child! However, for us, this makes baby number 4, not 15! We are very happy for you and will be praying for your family!

    Will and Charity

  • Sheri S (from PC)

  • Eileen

    Praise be to God! What wonderful news and tremendous blessing! Prayers for a safe, healthy and joyous pregnancy and birth of baby 15!

  • Michelle

    How exciting for you! We were due with #8 in March but lost the baby last month. It’s been hard to deal with, especially since I am getting ‘older’ and wondering if there will be more. I’ll be praying for Wendy as the Lord brings her to mind.

    Hi Wendy…that is indeed such blessed news!! We are definately not far apart at all :) We are still plugging away over here with our “love in the house” baby,..and take one day at a time. Congrats again!!!

    Michelle,..I don’t know you, but will pray for you right now.

  • Jennymomof13

    Congratulations! How exciting.
    we have 13 but only 11 living at home now. The ones at home are 11 to 1. Our family grew through adoption. 3 biological and 10 adopted. I am looking forward to try your cookbook. I love the “big Birthday bash” idea so we will probably focus on that next year. God Bless.

  • Fran Hanus

    Prayers of thanksgiving and praise! You and yours are in our prayers. We thank God for you and for all your blessings.

  • maryann

    You are very blessed! Congrats!

  • Victoria

    I KNEW that was going to be the “surprise”!

    Congratulations, Jeubs!

    I’m loving that photo… Havilah has turned into such a little lady!

    God bless!

  • Wendy

    CONGRATULATIONS!!! I was wondering if it could be again. I had my last baby a week before your Priscilla was born. Mine also a girl, but our fifth child. And, now, due with our sixth in April next year. Congratulations and may the Lord bless again with good health and a blessed pregnancy. I’m so happy for you all. God Is So Good!!

  • Nancy

    This is wonderful news! How blessed you are! Physically, the Lord must be caring for you. I have 7 children and I don’t know how my body could handle so many pregnancies. I have a few more years and hope to have more children, too. I pray you are feeling well. God is good!

  • Vicki

    Oh yeah!!! I’m so happy for you! Your children are really beautiful!! :)
    Happy Pregnancy..

  • T. Gates

    I’m SO happy for all of you! How exciting to have another little one entering your life! We have 3 now, but please pray that God will soften my husband’s heart to more. Congratulations!

    R. & T. Gates and family

  • Nancy Jones

    Congratulations on the expected addition to your family! I wish every child could be born into a loving home like yours.

  • Sarah B

    I’m going to add my congratulations to the many already here! It’s interesting… when I see Cynthia and Lydia at tournaments and stuff, I forget they have so many younger siblings because they’re so *normal.* Your family certainly destroys the stereotypes that normally accompany large families.

    See you in January? :)

  • Amy

    YEA! Watch out Duggers! :) Here come the Jeubs! HEEHEE! God’s richest blessings to you and yours!

  • Jen

    Speaking of Duggars and Jeubs (comment #65), the Jeubs AND the Duggars are on TLC tonight!

  • Kysha

    Congrats to you! I just watched you on TLC tonight and wanted to see if I could find you on the web and I did! I was so blessed by viewing your family while I cooked my dinner. :)

    Are there any plans for a series or follow up like the Duggars? Blessings to you and pray you have a wonderful pregnancy.

  • Angel

    I guess I lost count somewhere, on the show you had 13 and now you are expecting #15. You must have had a baby after filming the show? I have 10 and I have 2 “Alicias”. The younger of the two (23)daughters is currently on probation amongst other issues and the oldest(24) proclaims to be an atheist. When you said you refused to continue pouring yourselves into a child that didn’t want to be helped I very nearly burst into tears. That is the exact comment that my husband and I have both made towards the younger daughter. Maybe God, through you, clarified and condoned our decision to not allow her to come back home until she was repentive and on fire for God.
    Thank you both and bless you.

  • Havilah

    I just watched your show last night on TLC and noticed that you have a daughter named Havilah. That’s my name too! It made me so happy to see a fellow ‘Havilah’. I don’t run into many people with that name.

    You guys are great examples to me about parenting (I’ve got two). Thanks for the show!

  • Rebecca (Ramblings by Reba)

    Congratulations! :)

    I just “met” your family via the TLC show… and I’m looking forward to learning more about you.

  • Kelly

    Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Jeub and all of your children! That’s wonderful!!

  • Alisha

    Congratulations! You have a beautiful family. I can see God’s hand in all of your lives…God bless you both and all your children :)

  • Stephanie

    YEAH!!! I was hoping that you were being blessed with another one. That is actually why I logged on to your website today, I just had to know. LOL We just had our 9th almost 3 months ago. Wendy you inspire me. May God continue to be gracious and bless you and your beautiful arrows.

    Love in Him,
    The Neujahr’s: Stephanie wife to Troy, Kaleigh, Zack, Nick, Luke, Shawnae, Caleb, Gabriel, Malaina and Logan.

  • Sine

    What a blessing! May God bless you and your growing family with health during this pregnancy and upcoming birth..

  • Claressa
