Publisher's Description

In this second book from the Duggars, they focus on the principles that equip them to face life's challenges—drawing from their most recent challenge with the 3-month premature birth of their newest child, Josie. They also share the new challenges their older children are facing as they prepare for adult life. Central to the book is a section on the principles that the Duggars have consistently taught their children. These simply worded principles are basic to the Duggar family and are shared in a way that other parents can incorporate in their own homes. A special chapter on homeschooling gives valuable information to parents who are considering this route or are already invested in it. The world continues to be amazed by their nineteen well-groomed, well-behaved, well-schooled children and their home life, which focuses on family, financial responsibility, fun—and must importantly, faith. The Duggars show how parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several.

Author Bio

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar married in 1984. Some time after the birth of their first child, they prayed that God would give them a love for children like his love for children and that he would bless them with as many children as he saw fit in his timing. Soon after, Michelle became pregnant with twins! The Duggars currently have ten boys and nine girls, and all their names begin with “J”—Joshua, Jana and John-David (twins), Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah and Jeremiah (twins), Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn-Grace, and Josie.

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.

    This review was written for A Love That Multiplies - eBook.
    This 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.

    I 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!

    Admittedly, 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!
