family

Everywhere we go people gawk at our family. Yes, we stick out like sore thumbs because we are white and blond (sort of) but it's mostly because there are so many of us. People just can't believe that we have FIVE kids, and that we actually go places together... all of us!

Last week I was preaching in a church and mentioned that "we need preachers and evangelists and pastors to minister in the most difficult places." As I looked across the room at the approving wide eyes and nodding heads I said "Others of you may be called to have large families and train your 5 or 6 kids in righteousness." Immediately faces changed and even contorted. It was as if I was no longer speaking Spanish but Martian..... It seems that not many want the "curse" of several kids.

Doesn't the Bible say that children are a blessing? As a big family we feel that we have a tremendous opportunity to shine that much more in a dark and lost world. Yes, we have all kinds of flaws and imperfections but we desperately want to be different in an anti-christian, anti-family society that is full of broken and dysfunctional homes. Families everywhere need the Lord and they need to see Him where the rubber meets the road, in my family and in yours.

-Micah for the Tuttle's



I thought it would be funny to include this silly song that Amy and the kids put together. This was part of their folk song study (not too spiritual but very fun:)

Love the song!! :) Also love the BIG family. I think God is really moving on the hearts of His people to value family and children! Large Godly families are power tools for God!
