Happy New Year

This is a blog, a “web log” of the ins and outs of the Jeub Family. To date we have 535 subscribers to this site. Subscribers have posts like this one drop into their email throughout the year, discussing topics and sharing news events that, for the most part, surround the Jeubs’ busy lives. Want to subscribe? Click here.

Our posts strive to serve two purposes. First and foremost, our friends and family like to stay up-to-date with our lives. A blog is a great way of doing that. More importantly, our posts do what they can to encourage visitors in their personal walk with God (Galatians 6:2). Our walk with God is very different than most, but shouldn’t be any different in this respect: we all should be walking with God. Whatever your unique calling, do so with courage, ingenuity and love. This is the theme of this website and the lives of the Jeubs, and encouraging families to do so is the very reason we wrote Love in the House.

Now that Christmas is over (click here to read our Christmas Letter), we look forward to an exciting and productive 2009. The news out there is genuinely bleak, and analysis of who’s in charge isn’t very encouraging. But there is much to look forward to! The future is bright for families who put their faith in God, and the Jeubs are committed to posting more about how families can continue to be strong and optimistic.

With that, here are some things on our hearts that we plan to post more about in 2009…

1. “Always 20% off.” We sell our books on Amazon and other places, but JeubFamily.com should be the price leader. So, we will always have our books slashed to save visitors 20 cents on the dollar. We rely solely on the income from Monument Publishing and my part-time work with Training Minds Ministry, so we appreciate your patronage. Order away!

2. Home Improvement Projects. Our home is a modest 4-bedroom home. We dream of someday building a new home, but in the meantime, God has blessed us with this one. We’ve done a lot to the home to adapt it to our large-and-growing family, and we’re going to pick up the pace in 2009. Expect quality posts and pictures on this topic.

3. Love on the Diet. This is a popular comment when Wendy’s not pregnant: “A mom of 14 kids, how does she look so good?” She has finished writing her first draft of her new book on how she does it, Love on the Diet, due out March 1. Look forward to preordering this anticipated read!

4. How to Think. Training Minds Ministry is launching classes and a new conference this summer. The theme sounds sort of haughty: “How to Think.” Don’t confuse this message with “What to Think,” which is largely what popular media dishes on its followers. Proper, analytical thinking is a process that takes time, training and due diligence. Want to know more? Visit www.trainingminds.org and read my end-of-year letter. We’ve got big plans in 2009, and if you are looking for a fantastic 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministry to donate to, Training Minds Ministry could really use the help.

5. More from the Jeub Kids. We’re currently developing unique sections to our blog that will focus on the giftings of the older children (the ones still at home, that is). Cynthia aspires to be a journalist, and her thoughts are quite profound; Lydia is developing into a video expert, always working on a current project; Micah wants to start selling his sword-making kits, and he may lure his brothers into an entrepreneurial venture. These are just a few pages under development that we aim to launch in 2009.

So, subscribe today to this exciting blog. Forward this link to friends who may also be interested. Click here to subscribe, and God bless your family in 2009!

    Happy New Year Jeub family!
    Thanks for all the inspiration and fellowship (even if it is cyber-fellowship here and on the QF loop).

    God bless you in 2009!

    Dear Jeub Family,
    I live in Atlanta, Georgia but was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’m the eldest of 10 siblings. So I know what it’s like being in a large family. I LOVE Colorado! I also LOVE hearing about your wonderful family. I’ve gone all the way back to your beginnning blog and read all about you. I have also watched all your videos.

    I’m so happy to hear you are going to blog more often now. Before you wrote your Christmas Letter I would come to your site twice a day hoping you would have posted and was always so disappointed when you hadn’t. And I think it’s a great idea to let the children show off their talents.

    Your posts make me homesick for Colorado. I like Geogia OK but there is no place in the world as wonderful as Colorado!
    I look forward to your new posts and will keep checking everyday. (maybe two or three times, LOL)

    Have a beautiful Sunday,
    Miss Lila in Atlanta
