There’s a new series coming up here on the blog—the “Meet The Family” series! I’ve been wanting to do this series for months and months, and finally here it is!
The number one question we get these days is “how exactly does your family work?” People are a little confused about how we balance having family of twelve, having that wide variety of ages living under one roof, and also having most family members working full-time jobs, but most still traveling with the family band as well.
Whether you are a concert attendee asking about “the boys at home”, or whether you are a curious blog reader who just “doesn’t quite get it,”…don’t feel bad, we don’t always “quite get it”, either! =)
Through this series, we are going to attempt to give y’all a peak into each of us Bontragers’ lives, individually, so you can get a little idea for how we each “tick”. We hope this new series will help y’all get to know our family better, and encourage you that it is possible for one family to live together and still stay sane, happy, and productive!
Every Thursday for the next three months (beginning tomorrow, August 10th!) we will be highlighting a different family member (in random order) in each post. These posts will share about various details on each person, from current place of employment, to upcoming future plans.
“By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. But to do good and to communicate forget not:
for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.”
What a very cool idea! Looking forward to learning these fun bits about you sweetest of folks.:)
This is such a great idea!
I'm SO excited! Sounds fantastic. I check your blog every day, and each new post is so inspiring.
We are so excited! Every time someone says" The Bontragers have a new post then we all run to the phone!" You are such a blessing!
This is a really neat idea! I'm looking forward to reading about each person's interests as an individual!
Excited about this! Also I've enjoyed that you are posting more frequently this summer. Love it 🙂

This is going to be fun to learn about everybody! Your blog is one of the first things I look at every day and I enjoy all of the new posts. Keep it up!
This should be joyful. I hope this segment will include all the new members to the family.
How FUN! I am from a family of 11 and, you're right. People just can't quite understand how it all works. We recently had a friend overnight who said, "I always wondered how your mom did it. Now it see…it just works." 😀 We got the biggest kick out of her comment because she's exactly right! 🙂 ~Andrea
I've seen you mention your father turning his heart toward his family a few times in this blog, and would really appreciate it if you would explain what this means in the post that talks about him. It's clearly something of significance to your family, and I'd like to understand it.
I enjoy your blog very much,
We will do that! =)
Thank you, this is great!
Looking very forward to this! Thanks Bontragers 🙂
I hope we get to see lots of wedding pictures.
Definitely! We will also be live streaming the weddings; stay tuned for more info on that!
Great even though I will miss coming for celebration
