U.S. Women Having Fewer Children

Pls click here and read an article that really is one of my heartbeats.
As Christian women, we have a delight and a duty to raise Godly children. We are told to be fruitful and multiply. Our attitude toward children should be far away from that of the world. The world thinks that children are an interruption, a distraction, a drudgery and not the blessing that God calls them.

Eddie and I waited 4 years to have a child. We thought that we needed to spend time together and focus on one another. The truth about it though, is that Halley has brought us closer to one another. The fruit of our love has strengthened our marriage and given us a common thread. She has brought so much joy to both of us. I just watch with great joy as she runs to him in the morning when she gets up and when he comes to the door in the evening. She adores her father, and he adores her. I have loved seeing this tender side to him, as a result of having her in his life.

Do you have the attitude of the world or the attitude of the Lord concerning children?

I have 3 kids - which is NOT accepted in this area. You just don't do it. Well, I do! LOL I love your post, and hope that you are able to get the message out there, not just on the web, but in real life as well. There are so many women who WANT to have more kids but feel they SHOULDN'T. I say, go ahead and do what the Lord tells us!
