This second book by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar continues to lay to rest some of the rumors swirling about this ultra conservative Christian family. As an example, they are not “Quiver Full” as sited on various Internet sources. The Duggars graciously continue to meet their critics with a joyful smile and a quiet confidence, knowing that whatever they’re doing, it’s working for their family.
Whether you agree or disagree with their lifestyle and convictions, one thing is certain; this is a tight-knit family that loves each other. All throughout this book, their love for God and their family members shines bright.
A Love That Multiplies gives readers another inside look at the Duggar family and details how they’ve met some hard challenges head on with their strong foundation of faith and family. Their hope in writing this book is that they would encourage others to reinforce their family ties. This book also tells the story of Josie’s premature birth and the agonizing hardships they went through as they willed their baby girl to live.
Readers also get a more detailed explanation of why the Duggars’ home school, as well as their methods of memorization, character training and independent study.
A Love That Multiplies includes how the Duggars' worked towards financial freedom and the seminar that changed their lives. They live comfortably and debt free by avoiding debt, living frugally and saving. They also pray about every financial decision they make, and they make it very clear in this book that they have never accepted government assistance of any kind.
I enjoyed this book and was inspired at just how creative and resourceful this family is! If you’ve ever wondered about what life is like in the Duggar home, this book is a great place to start.
