Hello! My name is Rebekah Schultz and I'd like to introduce you to my big family. My parents have fourteen children (yes, you read that correctly), and all sixteen of us currently live under the same roof in the heart of Zion, IL. With children ranging in age from four to twenty-seven, there is never a dull moment in our house.
Many people have asked my parents how they manage such a large family. Well, as the second oldest, I speak from experience when I say they manage with love, responsibility, and a lot of common sense. Sure, there is plenty of work involved, but “many hands make light work”. Everyone from oldest to youngest pitches in where we can.
Our family is unique not only in size, but in many other ways as well. We're all home schooled and except for my oldest sister, all of us were born at home. We were brought up to eat healthy. We have no sugar in the house and use honey instead. We have an electric grain mill and grind our own whole wheat flour. Our refrigerators are full of fruits and veggies rather than processed foods.
My family contains many different personalities. Each of us has unique interests and talents. Our latest endeavor is the publication you are holding in your hands right now - "The Town Sound".
