Today the 4 Moms of Many are answering your questions. Brianah asked this question on FB. It’s one that gets asked  frequently so probably deserves some more publicity,  “What did your day look like when you had all littles?“ Our first 8 children are all between 14 and 18 months apart, so by the time…

Each day Mark or I try to speak with each child about their Bible reading.  For the younger ones this usually takes the form of questions to make certain they are completing the readings and understanding what they read.
