Upcoming "Meet The Family" Series!

There's a new series coming up here on the blog---the "Meet The Family" series! I've been wanting to do this series for months and months, and finally here it is!

The number one question we get these days is "how exactly does your family work?" People are a little confused about how we balance having family of twelve, having that wide variety of ages living under one roof, and also having most family members working full-time jobs, but most still traveling with the family band as well.

Whether you are a concert attendee asking about "the boys at home", or whether you are a curious blog reader who just "doesn't quite get it,"...don't feel bad, we don't always "quite get it", either! =) 

Through this series, we are going to attempt to give y'all a peak into each of us Bontragers' lives, individually, so you can get a little idea for how we each "tick". We hope this new series will help y'all get to know our family better, and encourage you that it is possible for one family to live together and still stay sane, happy, and productive! 

Every Thursday for the next three months (beginning tomorrow, August 10th!) we will be highlighting a different family member (in random order) in each post. These posts will share about various details on each person, from current place of employment, to upcoming future plans. 

"By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: 
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."
Hebrews 13:15+16

  8. How FUN! I am from a family of 11 and, you're right. People just can't quite understand how it all works. We recently had a friend overnight who said, "I always wondered how your mom did it. Now it see...it just works." :D We got the biggest kick out of her comment because she's exactly right! :) ~Andrea

  9. I've seen you mention your father turning his heart toward his family a few times in this blog, and would really appreciate it if you would explain what this means in the post that talks about him. It's clearly something of significance to your family, and I'd like to understand it.
    I enjoy your blog very much,
    Amanda
