What parent does not want to see their children have a life of inner peace and love? I believe inner peace and love is the greatest gift we can give our children. A peace within leads to a greater love of oneself and that love helps us to have a higher self-esteem. It is with this higher self-esteem that our children can best deal with the many challenges life has to offer. We all want to give our children the best chance for success in life, but what is the best way to make this success possible?

Love Another Child

We don't mean getting right by following a list of legalistic rules that have little or
nothing to do with loving God and others. We mean getting right with love. “
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8).

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.
