The Duggars: 20 and Counting! Book Review

I just finished reading The Duggars: 20 and Counting! I was interested in this book because I was hoping it would tell how they run their home.  And it did!  I was also interested to see if Michelle have helpful advice on how to raise several small children at once.  And she did! 

The Duggars outlined their daily routine, they outlined what resources they turned to when raising several small children at once, and they outlined how they manage their home.  They also spoke of how they are also learning as they go, which was comforting to me.  They weren't always as organized as they are now.  That grew over time.  They mention how they weren't always as patient with their children as they are now, that also grew over time. 

I especially loved how they prioritized family time.  It is one of their highest priorities.  That is rare now a days.  They make sure they have quality time together as a couple, quality time as a family and quality one on one time with each of their children.  If they can do it, there is no reason I can't. 

Not everyone may agree with them having so many children.  I, personally, love it.  I love that they are raising their children to love the Lord, serve others and that their children are being raised to be respectful.  That is also rare now a days. 

I would definitely recommend this book.  I know that I learned a lot from it.  I love being mentored by moms who have been where I am.  I look forward to reading their next book, A Love That Multiples: And Up-Close View of How They Make it Work.
