Love in the House

Love in the House

When the TLC camera crew ventured into the Jeub home for nearly two weeks of filming, they were forced to explain why they chose to have so many children, how they manage our household, and what they do that seems to create so much love in the house. TLC captured over 50 hours of footage but cut it down to a mere 44 minutes. Needless to say, most of what the Jeubs shared ended up on the editing floor. Numerous questions for their family hung in the air after the debut of the “Kids by the Dozen

    LOVED the book!, July 18, 2007

    I just finished the Jeub book Love in the House and was so encouraged/convicted. It is totally not what I expected. I guess I expected more of a “How to raise great kids” book and this it is not. I would classify it more of a “Why you should rear great children (and lots of them if the Lord blesses you in that regard)” book as well as “How we messed up with our eldest and how you can avoid the heartache” book. It was encouraging as well as convicting. I read it in a few hours last night after the kids (and husband) were asleep. I LOVED it! It pierced my heart when they talked about their separation/reconciliation with their eldest. It is so easy to fall short of truly loving our children as we get so busy trying to keep it all together. And all the while what is really important is falling apart under the quest for perfection.

    For those who just wonder how they do it, there are several chapters on the nuts and bolts of their household, which are encouraging to read since their ideas don’t revolve around hiring help or earning a large salary in order to function well.

    There is no way to really describe the whole book in a nutshell since it touches on so many topics, but it really is a worthy investment of your time to read. It is so different than most of the books out there that tell you that if you follow their “formula” everything will turn out perfectly for you and your wonderful children. Loving isn’t really a formula :-)

    We just received the Jeub’s book in the mail and I read the entire thing
    today! I just couldn’t put it down :-) . I highly, highly, highly recommend it!

    I must say that I was re-energized knowing that we’re not the only family
    that believes as we do. It is hard to be “counter-cultural”, so the book
    served as a major boost for my “down in the dumps” feeling today :-) .

    We laughed and chuckled as we identified with so many things in the book.

    I’m going to keep the book right near my Bible…that’s how inspirational I found it to be! It might serve as an additional source of inspiration on those bad days when we get “the look” or “unkind comment” from a stranger. Little do these folks know what they are missing!

    God bless the Jeub’s!

    Beware, reviews are deceptive, July 1, 2013

    This review is from: Love in the House (Kindle Edition)

    I started reading this book but it is so poorly written that I couldn’t waste another minute of my life reading it.
    Warning is that positive reviews are very likely to not be authentic. Mr. Jeub sent out said “Any of your friends willing to post on Amazon? We have 12 pretty decent reviews, but it’d be great to pack them with 5-star reviews. :) …”
    That says to me that he just wants people who follow him online to pack this with 5 star reviews. nothing is said about reading the book or being honest, just about skewing the reviews with positivity to overrule any negative reviews. I wasn’t going to review the book myself, but having seen this level of dishonesty I did read part of it. It was too poorly written to waste any more time on it. I bought it for a quarter used b/c I don’t want to show any level of support for this level of lying and deception. It is going into the Goodwill pile along with a bunch of other poorly child abuse masquerading as “good parenting” propaganda.
