  1. Jenn, Oh My Goodness! What an awesome announcement!!! I am over-the-moon happy for your family. I’ll be praying for patience, health and sanity for you, my friend. God has blessed you for sure!!! Love you and your words.

  2. I am genuinely so excited for you! I have four children and I wanted more but my husband did not. It was a sad day for me the day he made the decision permanent but I have had to be content with what I have. My baby is 17 and I am (almost) 45. Some days I am so sad that my home is more and more empty. But I remind myself that just because they are grown doesn’t mean I’m not a mother, it’s just different. I just hope my kids all have a heap full of grandbabies for me to love on!

  3. Congratulations!
    What a beautiful blessing! I guess I am that person that would ask a million questions to learn how you do it all! You are someone I view as a women that is wise and blessed. Thanks for sharing!
    Blessings beyond measure!❤️

    1. You are kind Angela! I certainly don’t do it all! My older children are a tremendous help, so if I had any tips it would be to teach them to be helpful from a very young age. It gives them value and worth to know they are a needed part of the operation!

  4. Congratulations Jenn!! I’m so happy for you! Children truly are a blessing and they all come in God’s perfect timing!

  5. I’m so excited for your family! I totally agree about children being a blessing from the Lord! Thanks for sharing all your encouraging words with us!

    1. Hey there Heather! Thank you for taking the time to comment! I am glad that you found this post encouraging!

  6. Every person is different and I can’t imagine telling another person how they should live their lives. As long as your children are loved and cherished I fully support your decision! Best wishes with a healthy pregnancy and an easy birth!

  7. Congratulations Jenn! I am definitely on of those who would have a ton of questions! ITs amazing how we find the strength to keep doing what is asked of us though. I hope you are feeling well! ❤️

  8. Wow, this post was so beautiful. I sent to a few of my mom friends to encourage them with their large families as well and they all loved it. We just found out we are expecting baby #7 and we are ecstatic! Praise be to God for another precious blessing. This post was wonderful, I know it’s old and I don’t even know how I found it? But God led me to it and it was edifying so thank you my new friend in Christ. I bookmarked the page (and my friend said she did also) to refer back to when encouragement is needed. May the Lord bless you and your precious family!( We have 4 girls and 2 boys! )

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment! Yes, this was one of my early posts! We have ten children now and our youngest is 4! I cannot believe how fast time flies! They truly are a blessing! Our two oldest (sons) have moved out and live in an apartment together near their college. It was so difficult at first to have them out of the house. However, the amazing thing is that I think our relationships are stronger now! They choose to come over, they are usually here three to five nights a week for dinner and visiting. We talk daily. Keep investing in your young children even though the work seems endless and the questions neverending! As they become adults you will have the most pleasant people to be around! Congratulations on your newest blessing! Prayers for a wonderful pregnancy and easy delivery, and of course a healthy and strong baby! May the Lord bless you!
