Why do we have so many children?

I think this is a sacred, personal decision for each couple. I recently read a blog post from another blogger who weighed in on the subject. You can read it here: Here
Tammy and Jace. 2 months old
This is the best response I have ever read because it is filled with responses from the Prophets of God. In our family, we follow the Prophet. So it isn't anymore difficult than that. It really isn't. 

Before I read this blog this morning though, my whole idea was simply this: PRAY, SEEK, RECEIVE. For us, this is the method we have used to know if we were to have another. Every time we have prayed to know, we have received a positive confirmation, we have been thrilled!! I am very happy the Lord has so abundantly blessed our sweet family. It is a sacrifice and it is a blessing.

Hi, Tammy! I want to tell you, again, how nice it was to meet you and what a terrific job you did in planning the last homeschool activity. I really wish all of my family could have come.

Thank you, thank you, thank you -- a billion times over -- for sharing that blog post!! I pinned it -- for myself. :) It re-confirmed my commitment to having as many children as my family is supposed to have. I also like what you added about seeking, praying, and -- if it's right -- receiving. Thank you for sharing!

I love this quote "Come home, wives, to your children, born and unborn. Wrap the motherly cloak about you and, unembarrassed, help in a major role to create bodies for the immortal souls who anxiously wait.”
I read that quote in the book “The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson” I have just copied it into my mommy inspirational quotes. Tammy you are an awesome mommy and I admire so much about your skills. It is a blessing to have a large family, it is a calling, it is a duty, especially when you are raising them in such a wonderful, righteous and positive home. Wrap your motherly cloak about them, love that!!! Love your family and miss you all so much!
