- How do you keep your grocery bill below $600/month?
- What creative solutions do you have to handle your large family?
- What became of the estranged relationship with your oldest daughter?
- What keeps Wendy looking so good after 13 births?
- Your lifestyle scares the daylights out of me. Why not you?

In the following pages you ll enjoy practical examples of how the Jeubs manage a family of 15 and some pretty unusual stories as well. But at the heart of this book you ll see a deep, profound love for children as gifts from the Lord. It is this love that is a timeless example every family can learn from. The Jeubs have lived out that timeless attitude with great effect upon me, and now, upon you.

Boy, was I surprised by Love in the House. I expected a guilt-inducing tome about a huge, perfect family. But as I read about the Jeubs, they seemed so…normal. They re relaxed, trustful of God, and joyful about life. They re honest about their struggles and doubts. You ll probably pick up this book out of curiosity at how a large family makes it in today s world. But I predict that you ll quickly move from curiosity to inspiration. What a great story!
