An Up-Close View of How They Make it Work
Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar
A Division of Simon & Schuster
I was really interested in reading this book, since I have not read any of the previous books written by the Duggars. Also living in the same state as the Duggars do I have expressed interest in their story. Seeing the family on television weekly (sometimes daily with syndication) it is easy to feel you know this family, however the truth is we don't know them, and I was interested in what they would share about the hard times they faced during Jocie's premature birth and Michelle's illness.
I laughed and cried as I read this book, I personally feel that this book could be so helpful to parents today. Sure Jim Bob and Michelle are not perfect and they haven't arrived, but they have such wisdom and willing hearts to learn more about how God wants them to parent, they are a great example anyone can follow.
I truly enjoyed the book, and look forward to continuing to follow their story, as their children continue to grow and become adults. A great book with a great message for all of us! 4 stars, 272 pages $15.00 US
I most definitely recommend this book to all parents and all young people just starting out their lives together.
