Links for Life

Spreading the message that “all Life is good,” one Link at a time.

Did You Mean to Have All These Kids?  “So I suggest we stop saying these things to the woman whose arms are full of children for the sake of the woman whose arms are not. Because the answer to “Don’t you know what causes that?” is not a what, but a Who. I don’t know why God gave me children effortlessly and withholds them from others who would make fantastic parents. But I know this: fertility is not a curse, it is a gift. It is a scandalous miracle.”

I Don’t Know How I Do It Either  “And I think that is one of the hardest things about raising a larger family.  It isn’t the cost.  It isn’t the chaos.  It isn’t the questions from everyone else.  It is the culture shock of the new language.”

A Special Life “Enjoy your special life.  You’re very lucky.”

Theodore Roosevelt: On American Motherhood “The woman’s task is not easy—no task worth doing is easy—but in doing it, and when she has done it, there shall come to her the highest and holiest joy known to mankind; and having done it, she shall have the reward prophesied in Scripture; for her husband and her children, yes, and all people who realize that her work lies at the foundation of all national happiness and greatness, shall rise up and call her blessed.”

What I Would Like To Say When People Make Me Feel Like a Freak for Having Children “Why is it strange to you that I have not done something to stop the natural process of reproduction? Why is the burden of proof on me, the one whose body is functioning as it was intended to do? Why is it strange for humans to have babies when the rest of Creation constantly demonstrates the natural and important cycle of life? Why would God make women to naturally bear children for a season of life but then expect us all to chide the ones who actually do? What kind of “wisdom” defies the healthy human body and circumvents its normal function?”
