Now in paperback—Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar share the joys and challenges of parenting with faith.

Anyone who sees America’s best-known mega family on television is filled with curiosity. People want to know….Why do they have so many children? What do they believe? What does the family do for fun? How do they get their children to obey so well? How can they afford to live? Now, Michelle and Jim Bob show how parents can succeed whether they’re rearing a single child or several.

In this second book from the Duggars, they explain the principles that equip their family to face life’s realities—including their most recent hardship with the three-month premature birth of their newest child, Josie. Josie’s birth tested everything the family believed in and demonstrates how they worked together, relying on their faith. They also discuss helping their older children navigate decisions about courtship and marriage and how to prepare to be productive adults. As the Duggars share their hearts and faith, readers will find answers to their many questions about this inspirational family.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gelati's Scoop 4. August 2011
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Do you watch the show? I am going to let you in on a few things here in this post: for one, I do. Usually I get to catch it on the DVR so I skip commercials. My wife and I do not have nearly the number of kids they do; we just have eight, but we share many similarities and I found for once that reading non-fiction is not a chore. Do I agree with everything in this book? No, it isn't made to be that way. My wife read it also and I think the best thing to come from reading this book is the dialogue my wife and I shared afterwards. I will agree, there are many similarities in our families (other than the fact we have large families). The interactions between the kids always hits home for us; it seems kids will be kids. The Duggars basically lay themselves and their beliefs out there for you; I for one admire that. They even say in the book, what they believe and how they live is not for everyone, but this is how and why they do it. Their faith driven approach is inspirational.
Truthful, straight up and to the point. I for one respect that type of honesty because they presented things in a manner that was not confrontational, disrespectful or condescending. I basically read this book with the intent and desire to get a look into what their motivations and insights were as parents. What drives them, how they maintain such a nice family atmosphere, and where all the love comes from. I got my answer in spades and that made the read for me. Do I agree with all their viewpoints? No, I don't think most would, but that is the thing, they don't mind; this is who they are. This was a true investment of time in my marriage, my family and my life and I feel better for having taken the time to give this book a try.

Auch das erste Buch von und über die XXXL- Familie mit den 19 Kindern - "20 and counting" habe ich mit Interesse gelesen.Wie sie bereits die Kleinkinder dressieren auf Wohlverhalten, mit frenetischem Lobklatschen der ganzen Familie, sobald der Töpfchengang klappt usw. ist dort anschaulich beschrieben. Man muss aber bedenken , dass diese USA - Familie einen strengen altchristlichen Hintergrund hat, denn nur damit kann das alles so laufen, dass keiner aus dem wohlwollenden Gruppenzwang ausbricht.
Gehorsam gegenüber den Eltern - sofort und bedingungslos - wird motiviert durch das bedingungslose Gehorchen Gott gegenüber.
Im zweiten Band gibt es nur wenige Wiederholungen, allerdings wird der Inhalt des Buches nicht ganz dem Untertitel - "How they make it" - gerecht, denn ein Großteil des Buches beschreibt ausführlich die Widrigkeiten, mit denen die Familie zu kämpfen hat, z:B. angesichts der extremen Frühgeburt des jüngsten Babies.
Was ich äußerst wertvoll fand, waren z.B. die Listen, die die älteren Kinder im Hinblick auf erwünschte Eigenschaften eines späteren Ehepartners erstellen müssen sowie die im Anhang genannten zahlreichen Internetadressen und Buchtitel, die - englischsprachigen - Ratsuchern behilflich sein könnten bei der Bewältigung des täglichen Lebens.
Auch wer nicht so ein extremer Christ ist, wird viele überlegenswerte Ideen finden, wie man einen - auch kleineren ! Haushalt besser organisieren, die eigenen Kinder leichter erziehen und nicht zuletzt mit dem Ehepartner besser klarkommen kann.Wenn man das Ganze mit einem leichten Lächeln liest, so ist das Buch unbedingt als empfehlenswert einzustufen.

Von Just Me - Veröffentlicht auf

I know there are strong opinions about the Duggar family on both sides of the aisle. I happen to be pro-Duggar (you are shocked right now aren't you). I like lots of things about them. I may not agree with them 100% on everything, but what I do know is that they are invested in their family. I think that is refreshing in today's world. The first half of the book is a lot about the trials they have had with their youngest daughter Josie and it was good, but if you have seen the show then you would know about it already although they do shed some light on things that happened behind the scenes which was interesting.

The second half of the book is what I loved. It is an amazing parenting manual mostly because it is derived straight from the Bible. It is just so good I took so many pages of notes and I wanted to share a few of the highlights with you.

On Overcoming Shyness

There is a chapter that contains the reasons to help your child overcome shyness. The big point of it is to be able to open doors to share your faith (pg. 98 of the book) also taken from Acts 20:35. They highlight Matthew 7:12 - treating others as you would want to be treated as a reason for overcoming shyness as well. They encourage you to teach your child to make eye contact and to practice introductions with your child - roll play. I personally think this is a good idea as I have shy children who sometimes refuse to speak to adults and I feel like it is very disrespectful especially if it is my pastor or his wife who are talking to them. This is something I need to work on with my kids. Also, with this they stress safety and never to go anywhere alone and never to talk to strangers without mom or dad present.

Developing a Servant's Heart (chapter 9)

They gave practical suggestions of what you can do to serve others even if you are young or if you are a mom with young kids. There were so many good ideas and ways to do this such as baking something and taking it to someone in need or to someone who needs encouragement. Writing notes or kids drawing pictures and mailing them. Visiting nursing homes or even going on a short term missions trip with your whole family. They also give ways to deal with criticism in a Godly manner (Matt. 5:11,44). A great quote from page 114:

"We can learn from critics, either because what they're saying is true - or because of the way we respond when it isn't."

Making Faith Fun (chapter 10)

Again, I found so much from this chapter and we have now been memorizing verses "Duggar-style". I will explain more about that in another post. They have so many helpful suggestions. I will have to refer you to the book on this one because there is too much to say on the subject.

The chapter on Homeschooling was good even if you don't homeschool it helps you to put your child's education into perspective.

One of my favorite chapters was on Vocations, Goals and Roles (chapter 12). They tell how Josh (their oldest son) got started doing what he does when he was young. This chapter will make you think outside the box for sure! I would recommend reading Young Bucks after you read this chapter. It will make your head spin in a good way! This chapter really helps you rethink how you are teaching your children to think about work and money. It is a great read!

I think I gleaned the most from chapter 13 - daily training and other things. The Duggar's explain how everything from potty training to helping in the kitchen can build a child's character. They also explain how they handle conflict resolution using Matthew 18. We have been trying this at home. We tell the child to go to their brother (or sister) first and then come to us if they will not respond. Usually when they come back to us and say their sibling won't listen we ask "how" they asked them and what their tone was. This is a great way to teach siblings conflict resolution. I cannot believe I hadn't thought of it before - it is in the Bible!

15 "If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that `every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses. Matthew 18:15-16

They talk about working together until something is done. They also talk a lot about encouragement and praise!

One thing I always marveled at was how Michelle could talk so softly when she had all those kids - and this book answers that for you. Well, the Bible answers it for you really. She had 10 kids under 10 and read Proverbs 15:1 - a verse that I and my children memorized but apparently I was NOT putting it into practice. So, Michelle decided to actually use a soft voice (because it turns away wrath) when speaking to her children. I will tell you I am daily trying this. Instead of yelling at the children, for the second time, to put away their dirty clothes, I am taking a deep breath and calmly looking at them in their eyes and saying, "Mommy, told you to put this away. Now, how are we to obey?" And their response should be, "All the way, right away, with a happy heart" (from Don't Make Me Count To Three - another great read!).

Instead of getting angry, I find speaking softly calms me down even when they don't obey the first time or don't answer correctly. It is definitely changing my heart.

Some parting words for you, because I could write pages and pages about this book, Michelle encourages moms to "choose joy over exhaustion and weariness" because as moms we know it is too easy to give into exhaustion. Another great point, "consistency is key!". Immediately attend to an incident and be consistent. Communicate openly with your children with love. Make sure they know their heart is safe with you.

I think you get the idea that I would encourage every single person out there to read this book. I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love the Duggars, you'll love this book! 14. Juni 2011
Von Allison Wonderland - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book provides deeper, more emotional insight into the Duggar family than their first book, which provided more information about their daily lives. What I liked best about this book was that Michelle and Jim Bob let their opinions be known a little more openly; there was less sugarcoating when it came to religiously significant topics. For example, they gave a name of a website and said its contents prove why "evolution is impossible." While I disagree with the statement, I applaud Michelle and Jim Bob for their brevity and sincerity. There were other instances of that throughout the book and it made for an interesting read. I love the Duggars and their books because it is a breath of fresh air to learn about a family focused on simply being nice to each other. An enjoyable and uplifting read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful advice for parents 9. März 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
A Love That Multiplies: An Up-Close View of How They Make it Work by Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar is a unique look into the life of family with 19 children and how they make it work. Just because the Duggars have a successful TV show doesn't mean they haven't had their share of ups and downs. In fact, their last child, Josie, was a preemie and Michelle was away from home for 7 months. How did the Duggars handle this huge change amidst mission trips to El Salvador, chicken pox and a slow recovery of Michelle as she also had to learn to care for Josie in a whole new way? Faith in God is what sustains them and their rock solid beliefs. They share many principles that guide them in parenting as well as schedules, ministry ideas and marriage advice. They are not numb to problems, but approach each situation as learning opportunities. There are many resources cited and plenty of yummy recipes they share.

I had only heard of the Duggars, but have never actually watched their show (I don't have the channel.). From this book I can tell they are very humble and only want to further the Kingdom of God with their lives. I really appreciated and was amazed at all the things they strive to teach their children. Throughout the book they used phrases like "We teach our children ________ because ________." I want to go back through and write all of these down! As I read this book I realized that no matter how big or small your family is, make them your priority. The Duggars are raising a wonderful generation of godly young men and women. We should all strive to be families that honor God this way.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting story, but presented in a choppy way 29. August 2012
Von Rachel Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am not sure why I picked up A Love That Multiplies by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. Up until Tuesday, when I caught a 19 Kids and Counting marathon on TLC, I've never watched the show before, nor read their previous books. But their philosophies on children and child-rearing and their faith intrigued me, so I picked this book up.

The book is not so much a memoir, as an up-close, conversational look at the Duggar family's daily life, and the events surrounding young Josie's birth. Topics range from managing the home and packing for trips, to homeschooling such a large group, to taking care of bad behavior from young ones at the first incident. Interspersed between each section and story is a favorite recipe, a list of snacks, or general home management tips.

They talk a lot about their faith, which is a very central part of their lives, and I can appreciate the way that it is really shaped their decisions as a family. Michelle and Jim Bob do not just say that children are a gift from the Lord, they live their lives as a testament to that as they arrange their days to teach their children and to spend time with them. Based on this book, it would appear that although the Duggar children may have some pretty strict rules on internet usage, and they may not own the latest and greatest gadgets, the Duggar children develop practical life skills and conflict resolutions skills from incredibly early age, making them more mature than their peers.

The writing was okay, more conversational in nature which doesn't always translate well to the page. There was also the assumption that the reader had both watched 19 Kids and Counting or read their previous book, as they made many references to the show, or referred to things they had shared in their previous book. While I can appreciate that they didn't want to bore readers with repeated information, it tended to make things feel choppy and incomplete.

Overall, I liked the book, and I really appreciate the Duggar family and their commitment to their faith. I would recommend the book to young parents, or to those looking to a non-traditional story of those choosing to live out their faith. I give A Love That Multiplies three stars.
