Thumb Through ‘Love Another Child’

Love Another Child

Our first shipment of books have been delivered! Those of you who have preordered, they’re on there way.

We so want you to have this book. It won’t be available in bookstores for a time yet, but we wish you could thumb through it now. Let’s do the best we can to walk you through seven key elements of our most exciting book to-date: Love Another Child.

1. Title & Subtitle

“Love Another Child: Children. They’re blessings. Always.”

It’s hard to believe that children are viewed differently. Few would admit it, but they fear and reject the idea of having another child. Our entire book addresses this core concern.

2. Cover

We love our cover! The picture says it all. The baby is wrapped with love from a mom and dad. The baby is Kendrick Stauffer, the son of a young couple who has been walking the walk of faith for five years of marriage, and they had their 4th child. We didn’t take the picture for the book, but I’d bet God had this book in mind when the picture was taken.

3. Back cover

A quote from Ken Davis spreads across the top. I sure love this man. He read the galley of our book and chose to endorse it. He says, “I wish I had read this book 30 years ago. I would have been a better dad. I might have also had more children.” Wow, what a compliment!

4. Flaps

We hope you buy the hardcover. The flaps persuade you to keep on reading. Check out what it says:

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’ve been waiting for this book since the very first post about it last year. We just found out we are expecting #12 so the timing is perfect. We are considering it as gifts for the grandparents who still do not understand our convictions.

    I too ordered it! Can hardly wait until it arrives. Way to go Jeubs!

    Is it true that you didn’t meet your first grandchild till he was 2? And that you kicked your oldest out of your home to experience the joys of poverty? If so, you are not qualified to write about loving another child, because you are still in the season of learning to love your own.

    • Angela Beltranm

      That is a family matter that they dealt with the best way the knew how. Coming from a family with a brother that made a lot of wrong choices, sometimes the most loving thing you can do is show tought love. They have been very honest about this struggle. She wasn’t put out on the streets she was place with family friends that they trusted and knew would do right by thier dayghter.He without sin cast the first stone.

      Natalie,

      I am curious to know if you are a parent? Because if so, you are certainly aware that difficult situations present themselves where we have to make choices that are not always ideal, nor are they necessarily exactly the way we would want them to be.

      The Jeub’s story involves heartache – yes. As do most of our own!
      That’s one of the reasons they ARE qualified to write about their journey of learning how to really love. They can fully relate to the struggle and challenge each of us will face – to some extent – as we go through the deeply refining process of raising children.

      Each of us, as parents, will continually be in a season of learning to love our kids! I don’t think any mom or dad ever fully “arrives.” It involves a lifetime of living and learning. To many of us, the Jeubs are a tremendous example of this. I, for one, am thankful for their transparency as they share their story.

    • Chris Jeub

      We actually write about this in our first book “Love in the House.” It’s a great story, Natalie, one that you should read.

  • Angela Beltran

    That is daughter, sorry
