Publisher's Summary

The Duggars: 20 and Counting! is a behind-the-scenes look at the supersize family that fascinates millions of television viewers around the world. From Idaho to Istanbul, people want to know how Arkansas parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar efficiently and lovingly manage 19 happy, home-schooled children without going into debt—or losing their minds!

This is an entertaining and enlightening collection of stories, photos, recipes, tips, traditions, and practical ideas designed to answer the questions of the curious, such as: Why do you have so many children? How do you provide for your family financially? How do you handle mealtimes? Transportation? Laundry? Birthdays? How are your children so well behaved? Why do all your children have names that begin with J?

Since their first documentary broke viewership records on the Discovery Health Channel, the Duggars have appeared in American and international news media, sharing their rock-solid faith and their overriding belief that “children are a blessing from God”. In this audiobook, Jim Bob and Michelle share their story, beginning with their own childhoods. They reveal how their growing-up years shaped their philosophy of parenting. It continues with tales of their big, busy family, whose televised documentaries and frequent appearances in news shows and newspapers have created an international following.

The Duggars share, with humility and humor, the family routines and guidelines they’ve learned through biblical study and trial and error—ideas that can help make your home a place of peace, love, and support: Financial lessons for debt-free living, organizing systems for a clutter-free home, home-schooling methods and schedules, training tips for little ones, relationship builders for older children, and favorite Duggar family resources.

Practical, Godly advice

My husband and I love this book. They give very practical advice for raising a young family and leading them in the ways of God. They also give good advice for living a Godly life. We love the Duggar’s and appreciate how they have influenced (and continue to influence) our lives over the years. God bless.

So interesting

I always wanted to have a big family and listening to this book gave me the feeling that it happened to me. I am amazed by the faith that made their story possible. the reason I rated the performance lower is because I didn't understand why it kept reading "I" Jim Bob and "I" Michelle. it would have been easier to follow if it was just written in Michelle's voice.

What's Next?

I’m a huge Duggar fan; I never miss an episode of 19k.a.c.

Based on the recent heartbreaking headlines, I was curious to go back and read this book that was written closer to the time of events - not to get scoops necessarily, but to hear about how they deal with challenging times in their family.

No matter what, I think we can all agree that these are sad and difficult moments for all involved.
