Now that the Jim-Bob and Michelle Duggar have announced they're pregnant with baby No. 19, it brings to mind a growing mentality and movement maintaining that children are a blessing from Jesus.
The term used by many is quiver full, which refers to a place in the Bible which say concerning children that "“Happy is the man who hath his quiver full of them…."
There's even a web site dedicated to that end named, of course - QuiverFull.
It's actually great to see many people returning to the desire for a large family and recognizing the blessing children are and can be.
This is a great trend to see, and many people are embracing the importance of family again.
