Children are an heritage of the Lord....
As I approach the middle of my pregnancy, I really truly am pensive, can I do it agin? Do I have it in me?
Once these adorable creatures are in my arms, of course! I know it is all worth it, but the 40 weeks of misery, can I handle it .... Ever again?
"The Lord did not say to multiply and replenish the earth if it is convenient, or if you are wealthy, or after you have gotten your schooling, or when there is peace on earth, or until you have four children. The Bible says, "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: ". . . Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them. . ." (Ps. 127:3, 5.) We believe God is glorified by having numerous children and a program of perfection for them. So also will God glorify that husband and wife who have a large posterity and who have tried to raise them up in righteousness."
President Ezra Taft Benson
Conference Report, April 1969, Pg.12
