According to the Brookings Institution, it now costs $310,605 to "raise a child" until the age of 17. Sadly, today's culture views having children as an "extra" today, impinging on personal freedoms. These attitudes contributed to a 0.1% population growth in the United States in 2021. Author/columnist Stan Guthrie says we need more articles affirming how great it is having kids and how God can more than provide the resources necessary in raising Godly offspring. Listeners from large families join the conversation with their personal testimonies of growing up under the blessings of God's unwavering faithfulness.
