I got to thinking though, what if each of their children had fifteen children and each of their children had fifteen children and so on. How many people would this produce in fifteen generations? The answer is 6,568,408,354,130,850,000. Maybe that is not what God had in mind. In fact it only takes ten generations at this rate to exceed the current population of the earth. Do the math.

The problem is that sometimes we think that what God wants in our life is what He wants for every other Christian, then we mistakenly try to put those ways of living on others as being the only way. There was only one Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt and witnessed the one and only parting of the Red Sea, , one Noah who rode out the flood with all the animals on the one and only ark, one Abraham who by faith believed God’s promise to make him a nation, one David who faced a giant with only one little stone, and one Mary who was visited by the Holy Spirit to become pregnant with Jesus. None of them attended any Gothard seminars or heard Billy Graham speak and quiverfull was their only way of life because there was no birth-control. Nor were there cars nor electric lights back then but we use them now without feeling sinful. And God has made only one YOU and one ME…we are an incredible distinct personality found lost and wandering that He will paint and frame into a masterpiece!

I know the Jeubs very well. They are just as genuine in real life as the image you see on the news. The house is full of love and joy. All the children are loved, welcomed, and accepted, including any “black sheep”.

The Jeubs are the “real deal”, kinda like “Cheaper By the Dozen” (the old version from the 30s), only there’s more of ’em!

You really captured the essence of what it means to have a quiverfull family! I hope you win some awards with this story! If you are ever interested in doing another Quiverful family, my family will be featured as well as the Jueb’s in an upcoming CBS produced documentary on WE network this fall. I have other story ideas as well. You can contact me at rachelmscott99@aol.com

I have to admit I’ve watched the family on TLC before and couldn’t understand why they would choose to have such a large family, but your slideshow presented their beliefs in a new light and realize what a great thing they’re doing. Great job on the story!

It is not because the Jeub kids are such a delight that makes the family wonderful. There is not one of their children that I would not want as one of my own.
It is not because God has blessed Wendy with a heart of Love that makes their family wonderful. God has given her a unique loving spirit.
It is not because Chris leads his family in Faith that makes the Jeubs so wonderful! Chris does an amazing job leading..
The Jeubs are wonderful family daily because they choose LOVE and avoid putting God into our comfortable and cultural box (knowing that they will pay the price in JUDGMENT from the self righteous for doing so).

Lead on Chris. Praise God we don’t know what the road looks like right around the corner. May God continue to grant you conviction to follow his will and the faith to endure difficulties ahead.

When did Chris find the time to learn to play the guitar?
I Love you guys.
