Psalms 127:3 “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.”
Very early in our marriage, the Lord directed us to not use any form of birth control. We have chosen to allow Him to plan our family. This means that we do not do anything to prevent pregnancy from occurring. We also avoid getting caught up in the “trying to conceive” mentality. Being “quiverfull” minded is not about having as many children as we can have. There is no competition. It is about trusting in the Lord and in His design for our lives. We believe that the Lord knows us better than we know ourselves and His ways are much higher than ours. We also believe that children are a blessing from Him and are to be desired.
