Elegant Mom And Dad Have 15 Kids, Then Show How They Live Together In One House

Kristin shares a Chicago home with a dog, a rabbit, two cats, a husband, and an 11-year-old daughter.

Lyette Reback was an only child, but she knew she wanted a large family of her own some day. She never babysat as a teenager or even changed a diaper, but now she has 15 children both biological and adopted!

If you already think Lyette’s life sounds hectic, just wait! She also home-schools her children and shares her life with the world on her blog (therebacks.com)! Did I mention the family also has several dogs?

Lyette says running a house with 15 children is like running a small to mid-sized business and sometimes she serves as many meals a day as a small café. She finds strength in her faith and when overwhelmed, she prays.

Her mission in life and through her blog is to bring help and hope for parents. She encourages parents to spend more time with their children and find joy in everyday moments.

In addition to raising and homeschooling fifteen children and operating a successful blog, Lyette  competes in half-marathons, marathons, and triathlons. Believe it or not, she also finds time to support and give back to her community and military families.

All I can say is WOW — I am seriously in awe of Lyette! She clearly has much to teach us about gratitude, putting family first, setting priorities, and time management.

Please SHARE Lyette’s inspiring story with your friends and family on Facebook.
