The Duggars: 20 and Counting!
A few days ago I finished reading the Duggars book 20 and Counting! Let me just start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED this book! I expected it to be good, but it actually way exceeded my expectations; I could hardly put it down. It is definitely one of the best books I have read. I still haven't returned it to the library because there are a few chapters I want to re-read. I highly recommend this book to everyone - especially to mothers. There were several times I found myself nodding my head and my eyes tearing up as I felt like I could totally relate to many of Michelle's comments and situations. The book is candid, interesting, informative, encouraging, and challenging. Both Jim-Bob Duggar and his wife Michelle wrote the book. I really like how several of the kids also contributed by answering commonly asked questions about their family. In this book, the Duggars discuss faith, finances (how they live debt-free), recipes, homeschooling, child training, organizing tips, and their philosophy about children. My favourite thing about their book is how they talk so openly about their faith and how God has worked in their lives. They are so honest and real that I found myself feeling like I was actually sitting down and having a cup of coffee with them in a home that sounds so full of the joy of the Lord, fun, and craziness! I cannot say enough good things about this book. If you get the chance, read it!!
