Anyone who sees America’s best-known mega family on television is filled with curiosity. People want to know….Why do they have so many children? What do they believe? What does the family do for fun? How do they get their children to obey so well? How can they afford to live? Now, Michelle and Jim Bob show how parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several.
In this second book from the Duggars, they explain the principles that equip their family to face life’s realities—including their most recent hardship with the three-month premature birth of their newest child, Josie. Josie’s birth tested everything the family believed in and demonstrates how they worked together, relying on their faith. They also discuss helping their older children navigate decisions about courtship and marriage and how to prepare to be productive adults. As the Duggars share their hearts and faith, readers will find answers to their many questions about this inspirational family.
The Duggars are the #1 program on TLC/ Discovery Health / TLC documentaries and have appeared multiple times on national TV shows, such as The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View, Inside Edition, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fox News Network, CNN, MSNBC, and others. Foreign television appearances include Italian Public Television, KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), and Discovery Home & Health (UK & Australia). They have been featured in magazine and newspaper articles in China, India, New Zealand, Australia, France, and Germany. As a family project, the Duggars built a seven-thousand-square-foot home. Both Jim Bob and Michelle are licensed real estate agents and conduct the Jim Sammon’s Financial Freedom Seminar in their community. They purpose to live completely debt-free—postponing purchases until they have the cash. Jim Bob served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2003 and was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2002.

ilseOhioAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book! Just one problem with Christian Book'sApril 4, 2012ilseOhioAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This is a great book for fans of the Duggars as well as those who've never heard of them. However, Christian Book's e-book version quickly skips past the last page in a chapter, which sometimes looks like a nice picture. If I had known this beforehand, I would have bought the hardback version from Christianbooks.com so I could still support a good Christian company.
DavidsMomLouisianaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A book I will use as a reference from here on out!March 29, 2012DavidsMomLouisianaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved this book. I got it b/c I love the shows and I knew it broke some of their beliefs out. It did follow some of their story that I had watched but there was a lot of behind the scene stories and also the biblical reference on how they live. I love how Michelle and JimBob parent and how they focus on God and family. The world would be better if there were more people like the Duggars! I loved alot of their examples and plan to use some and try some of the recipes given throughout the book!

Stephanieupstate NYAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Still multiplying!February 2, 2012Stephanieupstate NYAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Admittedly, the first third of the book had me in tears. Most of the beginning of Michelle and Jim Bob's second book deals with the scary circumstances surrounding Josie's birth and the difficulties of a preemie in the following months. My situation wasn't the same, but my husband and I lost our first baby boy at 26 weeks, and the Duggars' story reminded me of that frightening time in my own life.
If you've watched only one episode of the Duggars, you will quickly realize that their convictions are not popular. Jim Bob, Michelle, and their children are very open and forthright about their strong biblical standards. In A Love That Multiplies, they tell the reader over and over again that they believe children are a precious gift from the Lord.
Early in their marriage, Jim Bob and Michelle gave God complete control over how many children they would have, and they have never wavered from that decision, despite nasty and ignorant comments from the outside world.
Throughout the entire book, I was impressed with the Duggars' strong faith in God's Word. Everything they do, from babies to school to work revolves around the Bible. For example, the children memorize a passage from Matthew 18, which gives the biblical steps for conflict resolution. As they memorize, they incorporate what they've learned into everyday life. Squabbles with sisters and brothers are to be resolved biblically.
My two favorite parts in the book were both written by Michelle. When watching the TV show, I continually wondered how she can be so calm and quiet. Even her niece remarked in one show, I've never heard her yell!
Well, Michelle enlightens us in the book! Apparently she used to raise her voice and lose her temper! However, during a school study on anger, one of the Bible verses she was reading to the children stood out to her - Proverbs 15:1, `A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger' - and she was so convicted of her wrong behavior! She immediately asked the children to forgive her and asked the Lord to help her control her tongue.
Michelle says the Lord immediately tested her with a can of pineapple.
You'll have to read the story yourself!
But, I was so encouraged to see that she has struggled with anger, yet with the Lord's help has worked on having a calmer, kinder tone with her children.
I was also glad to read that Michelle felt overwhelmed with the responsibility of homeschooling. Her teachable spirit is obvious and such an encouragement to other moms, as she appears so organized and unflappable, but is truly human like each of us!
Many can admire this `and-counting' family in a well-good-for-them-but-not-for-me kind of way, but true biblical faith is hard for the lost world to understand. I believe the Duggars faith and conviction can be boiled down to Matthew 6:33, `But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.' If you put the Lord first in all you do, EVERYthing will fall into place.
I really enjoyed learning more about what makes the Duggars tick. Several things were quickly mentioned that they covered in more detail in their first book, The Duggars: 20 and Counting! I think I'll have to check that out soon!
If you're curious about that how-many kids?! family, A Love That Multiplies is a fascinating look into the Duggars' crazy life - or `serene chaos,' as Michelle says! You'll read about Jinger's stolen diary (!!!), the popcorn round of Memory Lane, as well as delicious recipes, helpful household tips, pictures of the family, and so much more!
