For Sarah McClelland-Brown and her husband, the decision of when to have a child wasn’t a simple one.

When she was 25, and just three weeks before completing her master’s degree, she met, Jon Brown,who would become her husband.

Now 30, she is a mother and a pastor. Her husband also is a minister.

McClelland-Brown said finances, education and communication played roles in their child-rearing decisions.
