The Interview

Have you ever been interviewed for a newspaper article?


Yesterday afternoon a reporter from the local newspaper interviewed me and the children for an article he is writing about our family. I was a little nervous about it, but he was so nice and personable that he quickly put us all at ease. We enjoyed talking to him and answering his questions for over an hour and a half. Then, before he left, we served him a piece of whole wheat bread that Josh had made earlier in the day.


I'm not sure he has ever met anyone like us before! I guess we are a bit of an "oddity" in our modern day society! :) I think he was intrigued by the idea of having such a large family! Just like I might be intrigued by what life is like for the Duggar Family, who has almost twice as many children as we do!


I meant to take a picture of him talking to the children or furiously jotting down notes, but I totally forgot to. So, I post anyway. Without a picture . . .


Now we wait for the article to come out. What slant will he take? Will we be pleased with the article? Will there be things we wish we hadn't said? Or things printed that we are confident we actually did not say?? I guess we will find out on Sunday.

My prayer is that the Lord will use this interview to bring glory to Himself through your family by encouraging family life, homeschooling, faith and contentment in Christ; the hopeful prospect of keeping and raising children as a blessing.

I am sure your "interviewer" was very impressed.

Blessings,

How fun! It's easy to forget in the day to day that parts of our life aren't "normal." Can't wait to read the article!
