Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar demonstrate their faith in their daily lives, as the parents of nineteen children and the grandparents of two children. Their family and their faith is featured on the TV series “19 Kids and Counting” (which airs on TLC), and also in their most recent book, “A Love That Multiplies.” The book, published by Howard Books, is currently available in both secular and Christian bookstores throughout the Huntsville area.
The family faces an uncertain future with confidence from the Lord
The birth of Josie presented many challenges for the Duggar family. Michelle developed serious complications at twenty-four weeks of pregnancy, and it was determined that Josie would have to be born immediately through an emergency surgery, and then Michelle would be given emergency surgery for the medical complications that had developed while Josie was placed in the NICU at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Even though the Duggars were facing an uncertain future on those dark December days in 2009, the family had confidence from their faith in God that they would not just survive, they would grow stronger as a family who stood together during the tough days immediately following Josie’s birth and Michelle’s emergency surgery.
From Josie’s birth to relationships and homeschooling
The book tells this story in the Duggar’s own words. It also takes readers behind the scenes, giving them access to the family and how their family is built on the solid rock of God and His Word. From advice on homeschooling to the activities they share as a family, to even relationship advice, this book helps people see just how the Duggar family does what they do. A person reading this book will not only have a greater respect for the Duggar Family, they will also have their faith with God strengthened and will pick up ideas that will help them have a better relationship with their family members.
“A Love The Multiplies: A Close-up View of How They Make It Work” is available at most local bookstores in the Huntsville area. If readers only grab one parenting and relationship book this year, this book should be the one that goes on the bookcase.
