Are Children Welcome in Your Home?

Reader Interactions


  1. I loved this article. Children are very welcome in our home. We have ten children of our own, ages 1 – 23, and one son-in-law (April 09), with a grandchild on the way due in May. Yes, children are welcome here. This was an encouraging article.


  2. This is a truth so dear to me. I will always be grateful to the lonely voices that taught me this truth when no one else had the courage or conviction to say it. Bill Gothard and Jim Sammons were the ones who made it clear to me.

  3. My husband and I are first generation Christians. Out of ignorance, we made a worldly decision. We agreed for him to have a vascetomy after our 4th child was born. Our children are such blessings – not only to us, but to all whom they know. Stopping the growth of our family was the worst decision we ever made and one we will always regret. I am glad that you are speaking out on the importance of family size based on God’s plan for each family.

  4. Hi Ken,
    Just read this. Very nice. I am now embracing my grandchildren and enjoying them to the fullest! Teaching the young ones at home to embrace their nephews and nieces. I am proud to say they are doing a pretty good job of it! Praying for you and your ministry.

  5. Thank you, Ken and Lois, for being an example of this in our lives. We are so grateful for your family and other family members that showed us first-hand the blessing of a large family. I believe this with all my heart.

  6. Love your post! Children are welcomed at our home also, we’re expecting #15. The Home by Dr. Rice is one of my favorite books.
