Back Cover

Chris and Wendy Jeub have this regret: they wished they understood at an earlier age the profundity of parental love. It takes all parents by surprise at first, but it’s understood by most grandparents. Think of the grandma and grandpa of a dozen grown children and more grandchildren than you can count. Their advice: Love your children more.

Life gets complicated, though. Popular sentiment discourages children; you’re almost crazy if you don’t cut the line, “get fixed,” and keep from having more than one or two children. Personal fear weighs in, too, doubts that you’d be emotionally, physically or financially able to raise a child.

The Jeubs have grappled with these doubts, and they’ve wrestled with the flow of the culture. They’ve come through with a message about love that will transform how you think about children and family life. It’s a perspective of faith, a walk of conviction and adventure. Love Another Child is a joy to read, but also encouraging and persuasive.

Inside Flap

Family is a fortress. Parental and sibling bonds are unshakable. The flourishing of loyalty and love is the desired blessing of every man and woman.

But that perspective got lost somewhere. Family is trivial. Children just a consideration. They disorganize a couple’s tidy life. They’re messy, harmful to the environment, financially and physically exhausting.

Chris and Wendy Jeub invite couples to reconsider this skewed perspective toward the blessing and heritage of children. They grapple with modern arguments like population control and the environment, but turn quickly to root hesitations like fear and family dysfunction.

And they encourage you to following God’s prodding to have and love another child, a most excellent calling indeed.

    I so can’t wait to read this. I made the big mistake of getting my tubes tied after 4 children because I had that mindset that that was enough. But felt absolutely miserable after doing it. I felt like I had gone against God’s will so within a year later I had a tubal reversal and was blessed with 3 more beautiful children. What a blessing that was to be able to have children again and leave it to God to make that decision for me. What a relief I felt when I finally had it all back the way it should be. Now I so pray everyday for more children,just wish I had figured it out a long time ago so I could have had so many more.

      Oh boy, you are going to absolutely love our book. You’ll probably buy a box of them and hand them out to people, answering their questions with “just read this.”

  • Gini Walker

    What a precious cover. Can’t wait to read it. My husband and I made a worldly decision to have a vesectomy 6 weeks after our twin girls were born ( which made 4) My heart has been heavy for years. I am blessed with the chidren God has given us. I unfortunately still have the what if’s playing in my head.

    These covers look really nice and professional. I have been enjoying your other books that I got as a gift for Christmas. They are such quick reads and so practical that I am already almost done so I look forward to this one. I also really like the website re-design.

    I am so happy to see someone who has walked this road farther than we have puting their wisdom regarding this matter in a book. We get ridiculed and severely criticized for having a big family partly because of our low finances. I have a hard time articulating to people our convictions and reasons for our family size. We just try to live the life and make the best example that we can. I am hoping this book will help many understand our convicions and that it will help me to encourage other young families that we know to love another child.
