True Believing Me thought that with faith and hard work, it would all work out. After all, the "Prophet" (what a joke!) said so. This counsel was obviously straight from the mouth of God.
I apologize if I am too repetitive on this subject. But it really did ruin everything. Not everyone has the same "Go" power. Bodies often break down, get sick when put under the strain of having to do too much. The couples who succeed in doing this usually have parents on one side or the other who are helping them. Some couples are fortunate enough to have two sets of parents extending a lot of help. We had no parental help at all,no rich uncles or anything like that. SWK seemed not to be aware that the economy had changed drastically since his day.
I remember the Ensign articles where Russell M. Nelson practically bragged that he had had ten kids while going through college and medical school. And there were stories of rank and file Mormon having babies while successfully completing very rigorous academic programs. The implication, of course, was that any tithe-paying Mormon with faith can do this.
