This is from an email I received last week:
I am a doctor who has just recently quit and become a full time homemaker.
I am so BLESSED. My depression and anxiety have VANISHED.
I suffered terribly for so many years, battling through medical school.
And for what? For a qualification? It brought me nothing but pain and sadness. The medical school and university environment is evil.
If only I found God and your blog sooner, I would have saved myself so much heartache, pain, depression…the list goes on.
I am blessed to stay at home while my husband works, and I care for our 20 month old. I just turned 29.
It was always my dream to have a big family, but my parents always told me that “kids ruin your life” and “get your career and have kids later.” So wrong.
I worry now that I am 29 with one child. Am I too old to have a big family? Are three kids possible? I wish I had spent my 20s building up a family. I have so much painful regret. Please can you offer me some advice and wisdom.
Praise the Lord, I never took alcohol (I have never drank alcohol in my life) and never took birth control. I just worry that it’s too late for me to have a big family.
By the way, I bought your books on my Amazon Kindle. Your words were the signpost for me to turn my life around. And my life certainly has done a complete 360! I am so happy to be following God’s word. He is so wise.
***I told her that there’s a godly woman on YouTube who was married at 28 years old and went on to have nine children, so NO, it’s not too late! My grandmother had her seventh at 47 years old.
I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
