A Note from Jim Bob and Michelle
The recent “documentary” that talks about our family is sad because in it we see the media and those with ill intentions hurting people we love.
People often ask us, “Did you always want to have a big family?” When we first got married, we thought we would probably have two or three children and be done. However, the sorrow of a heartbreaking miscarriage with our second child caused us to have a heart change. Through this difficult time, we began to read in the Bible that children are a blessing and a gift from God.
We have a special place in our hearts for families—our goal is to encourage husbands and wives to have strong marriages, brothers and sisters to be best friends, and for everyone to find true hope in trusting Jesus Christ!

Top Questions for the Duggars:
How did your family get involved in filming a reality TV series?

What is courtship?
If you’re single and hope to get married someday, you have to go from being single, to starting a relationship, to getting engaged, to walking down the aisle. Some people choose the modern dating path to get there. Some choose the...

Jim Bob and I purpose to go out for a lunch or dinner date weekly. When our children were younger, precious Grandma (Mary) Duggar helped us to keep our weekly date for many years by baby-sitting, for which we are extremely grateful! We also purpose to never allow...
What does a typical day in the Duggar house look like?
We have goals, but then we have reality! We are learning to practice flexibility—not setting our affections on ideas or plans, which could be changed by God or others! Sometimes we have "Daddy Days" when Daddy overrides the schedule and takes the children out for...
