Growing Up Duggar, It;s All About Relationships (Review)

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book, enjoyed hearing the stories of the Duggar family.  And while their convictions are not my own, I do like the fact that they understand that.  Each section that deals with relationships is very interesting I particularly enjoyed the section of the relationships between the father and daughter.  I think that this family and these young ladies have insight into the damage that anger does in a family better than anyone I have ever read.  Definitely a great read for someone dealing with anger issues.  I also loved the fact that the girls are not willing to settle for anyone but the one that the Lord has for them.  A great read.  4 stars.

About the Book
It’s All About Relationships!

In this delightful and very personal book, the four oldest Duggar girls share their hearts and their core beliefs, explaining that it’s all about relationships! 

• Relationship with self: The girls share their own personal journeys to self-acceptance and navi­gating the difficult stage of adolescence. 

• Relationship with parents: You’ll find revelations about how Jim Bob and Michelle keep the lines of communication open with their children. 

• Relationships with siblings: Here, you’ll get a peek into the Buddy system, how the siblings handle conflict, and how the loss of little Jubilee (their sister) affected their relationships with each other. 

• Relationships with friends: You’ll find principles on how the Duggar kids deal with peer pressure and how they interact with friends outside their family. 

• Relationships with boys: You’ll learn the Duggar view of dating and courtship, and these four sisters will address the often-asked question of when one of them will get married. 

• Relationship with God: And woven throughout the book, the girls talk about their most impor­tant relationship of all—their relationship with God and their own personal faith and beliefs. 

This candid look into what Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger believe and why they believe it will give you practical insights into your own life and will inspire you to evaluate principles that will work for you.
About the Authors
Jana is twenty-four and the eldest of the Duggar daughters. She leads young ladies in a ministry called “Journey to the Heart.” Three years ago she obtained her First Responders certification and volunteered on the local fire department for a year and a half. She also has had the opportunity to attend births as a labor coach and stays busy managing the family mailroom!

Jill is twenty-two and currently a student midwife. You will oftentimes find her counseling girls via phone, text, in person, or email. She enjoys playing harp and violin, and keeps busy studying Spanish, checking up on pregnant mommas, volunteering on the fire department, and helping out on political campaigns.

Jessa (twenty-one) is talented at playing several instruments. She can hear something once, and the next thing you know she’s pickin’ it out on an instrument. In her “spare time” she enjoys reading books, memorizing scripture, discipling friends, and spending time with her family. Jessa has the gift of organization and loves using it!

At twenty, Jinger is always full of energy, that is, when she has a cup of coffee in her hand! She has become quite the photographer and likes picking up tips from professional crews that often come through. Jinger loves jammin’ in the living room, playing duets on the piano with Jana. She has a passion to reach the world for Christ, so she often passes out gospel tracts in her many shopping outings!
