This is our “about us” page, so we want to tell it to you straight, give you the big kahuna of what we’re about. Actually, it isn’t too complex:
We believe you, as parents of your beautiful children, should pursue joy in your home by learning along with our family the wonderful depths of love.
And we’ll emphasize: this thing called love is deep. We’ve been parenting for over 30 years, and a day hardly passes without a lesson on love. Every parent experiences these depths. Don’t they?
Our resources cover topics that other parenting websites cover: how to fold laundry, buy groceries, cook meals, and so on. We’ve got great things to say about these things, sure, but we don’t do so just to master tricks of the trade. We do so to help parents craft a loving home for themselves and their children. Go ahead and master the tricks to great parenting, but if you don’t build a home of love, you will have failed as a parent.
Meditate on that for a few seconds.
If you don’t build a home of love, you will have failed as a parent.
You may have thought differently. Perhaps being a good parent meant something other than actually loving your children. “The thing that will make me a good parent is [fill in the blank].” Discipline, training, schooling, time management, financial wisdom, biblical worldview, bearing more children, etc. These are helpful — many are topics we cover in our books and in articles on our website — but not the central theme. None of these should be the “big kahuna” in your home. In fact, we have seen homes that attempt to put something other than “love” in that blank, and they are horrific homes. Nothing you’d want to be a part of.
We cannot emphasize enough: love is it. It is not just one of many virtues. It is the most important virtue. It’s the “most excellent way” (1 Corinthians 12:31). Consider the response Jesus gave when asked what the greatest commandment was. His answer: Love the Lord God and love your neighbor. “All the Law of the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:34-40). This is the reason Jesus is worshiped in our home: love.
Little in life teaches more about love than family. LOVE is what the Jeubs are about. And love is what you and your family should be about, too. Together we’ll learn the depths of love in this wonderful journey of family.
