Yes, They're All Ours Review by Nancy Wagner

I love the title of this book. That, with the subtitle "Just an average family. Of Fourteen" says it all. And the next questions people ask when they see the family together are covered in the very first paragraph: "…No, we're not Catholic. No, we're not Morman. Yes, we know what causes it. No, we don't have a television. And yes, as a matter of fact we do drive a school bus."

This humorous, yet serious writing style continues throughout the book as he picks fun at mostly himself while introducing his family members and describing their funny happenings while still explaining how their basic philosophy of how they manage money, organization, child training, and home education evolved to what it is today.

This is life in a large, Christian family that everyone will get at least a chuckle each page, sometimes two. Beyond the humor, though, he gives vital perspective to what is important and what is not in raising any family as well as tips for those readers with large families of their own. I recommend it for a thoughtful book that may well help you formulate your own priorities for your family if you haven't already.
