Courtney and Chris Rogers reside on a small farm in New Mexico with their 12 children. Their deep faith in God is a vital aspect of their lives, bringing immense gratitude to their joyous home. Despite the bustling chaos, the couple embraces their large family and acknowledges the divine trust bestowed upon them.
Originally from North Carolina and Georgia, Courtney and Chris made the move to New Mexico eight years ago. Alongside being a pastor at the local church, Chris is actively engaged in various construction projects. Courtney, on the other hand, devotes her time to homeschooling their children year-round, while also managing the household and caring for the farm.
The Rogers family consists of Clint, 12; Clay, 10; Cade, 9; Callie, 8; Cash, 7; twins Colt and Case, 6; Calena, 4; Caydie, 3; Coralee, 2; Caris, 1; and the youngest member, Cambria, born in March 2022. Each family member contributes to the household chores, fostering a sense of responsibility and unity among all ages.
The farm plays a vital role in sustaining their large family, providing meat, eggs, and vegetables. However, the challenges of providing for a family of 14 are not to be underestimated. The Rogers family finds creative solutions to accommodate their needs, whether it’s organizing construction projects, relying on their farm’s resources, or renting entire houses during vacations.
Courtney’s journey as a mother began a month after their wedding, but it was marred by the loss of their first child within six weeks of pregnancy. The pain was profound, despite the early stage of pregnancy. Nevertheless, six months later, Courtney became pregnant again, and in March 2010, they welcomed their first child, Clint. Subsequent pregnancies followed, with shorter intervals between each birth.
While the family occasionally feels the constraints of limited space, their love for one another and their unwavering faith in God sustain them. The challenges they face only strengthen their resolve and commitment to their values. Courtney and Chris actively serve their community, teaching classes at church, volunteering at a local daycare center, and sharing their knowledge of American Sign Language.
United in their faith, the Rogers family attends church together and finds solace and guidance in their shared beliefs. Courtney documents their daily life on Instagram, providing glimpses into their joyous and fulfilling journey. Their unwavering belief in the sanctity of children as divine gifts from God compels them to impart essential values, work ethic, and the importance of family and faith to their children in these trying times.
