    Thank you for showing the world what family is truly about. I love your family, I can not express enough how heart felt and loving you all are. You know how to raise a family in the right way….. We need more God loving families like you to make this world a better place. Congratulations on your beautiful grand baby!

    Hi, folks! Thank you for your sweet words! It was such a pleasure to be able to stand in agreement with you all as you awaited Israel’s arrival. The Lord woke me up in the wee hours of the morning, and told me “Pray for Jill”. I knew immediately things were ahead that needed to be circumvented. It’s so good to have Him in our corner, calling out Intercessors from all over to praying for your family, and the new “little ones” He’s bringing in this world. Your family was born for “such a time as this” as it is a true testimony for all to behold! God is SO Faithful, and you have found favor with Him that He chose your family to exhibit Himself through. Thank you for your obedience to allow all of us into your family! And, thank you, for exhibiting the Love of Jesus for all to see. They may fuss about it, but really, if they weren’t hungry for it, they wouldn’t continue to watch. Many, many, many blessings to you all! Love you! Donna Rolin

    Yes we are so thankful your precious gift from God has arrived. We adopted my son when he was 6 weeks old and it was so much fun. Now he and his wife are trying to get pregnant but have been told by doctors they cannot have children. Please agree with me and my husband that God will bless them with children. I would love to experience a pregnancy in my family as me and my two sisters all adopted children. We have a total of 5 and we love them dearly. It will be exciting to see where God leads our family. Blessings to all of you, Linda

    I was thrilled to hear about the arrival of your new Grandson Israel and I will continue to say Prayers for you and your wonderful family. The Good Lord had other plans for me when I was younger (I will be 61 next month) because I lost 6 children within the first trimester each time so I love watching your family grow and honor God the way you all do. Children are all gifts from God and to see how you all continue to live the way you do in these terrible social times we live in is so refreshing. Thank you for allowing us to come into your homes every year to show the world how it could be today if they only lived the way God wants us to live. And to have Israel born during this significant Holy season makes his birth even more special in my eyes. God Bless you all and go and enjoy the new love that a newborn child brings into our lives.

    PTL for this new life! I am thankful that the Dugger show is on TV representing Christian values in such a positive way. Someday, could you post the jurisdiction categories/jobs and age appropriate levels. I love this idea. What companies do you use for your homeschool classes. I know each family has to choose, but seeing yours, would be so nice. TY again for being so open and caring.

I have from 3 grown children, 13 grandchildren and 2 great grand daughters; what a blessing they all are. I love to cook for them and buy them their favorite goodies. Praise the Lord for all of you and praise the Lord for precious little (big 9 lbs 10 oz) Israel David Dillard. I am thankful Dad and Mom are alright.

    I am so thankful that little Israel has arrived healthy. What a great gift from God. I love your show and the morals that you and Jim Bob instill in your children and your love for God and to raise your children to love one another and others and most importanly the Lord. There’s not a whole lot of TV programs that are decent and a teaching tool for young people and first time parents to watch. Yours is one of these. I also watch the Bates family which I know are very good friends of yours. They too are a great family.

    Congrats to you all! What a beautiful baby! Please pray for my “one day will accept Jesus as his personal Saviour” son, John. He has the strangest opinion of those who have more than two children. I don’t understand where he got this opinion. But it is a passionate opinion. Both he and his wife, Lauren, are in the same opinion. I love you and your whole family. From Chicago area..in Christ, Gina

    Hi Michelle and Jim Bob, I felt so honored to receive a thank you from both of you regarding you joy in the birth of your fourth grandchild, Israel David. I am so thankful to God that Jill and Derick have made the decision to let Him decide how many children they should welcome into this world. I love the both of you very much. I want you to know that I defend any and all negative (and very rude) comments about you, your family and your lifestyle. I am a Catholic woman and I do believe that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!! You both are a testament to many and those who feel they must waste everyone’s time dirtying you will feel God’s wrath someday. I have been attacked by these people and I now choose to delete the message without reading it. That is the only way. Do not fuel the fire of these haters. I look forward to witnessing the birth of little Israel David. Jill and Derick are and will continue to be wonderful parents and I am so happy for them. Little Israel is a beautiful boy. God bless him and all of you!!! Love and Prayers, Lillian Padavano

    God bless you every one! We are so so blessed by Jill and Derrick! There quiet faith and Derrick’s testimony has blended with Jill’s faithfulness throughout this time! I was quite anxious when I found that she had to deliver baby Israel at the hospital….. But as I was praying I was overcome with a gentle piece that can only come from God. We are so proud of her and so proud of Derrick and so blessed by baby Israel….. Thank you for letting us share your lives as we become your family too! We know you think that’s okay because you said love always has room for more! God bless you! Know we’re always praying for you from Florida! Love to each and everyone… Give baby Israel a tiny little hug from this Mamaw of 20.

    I love your show. I’ve been watching since I think it was 14 Kids and Counting? 14 or 16, don’t remember exactly the number. lol I’ve enjoyed watching the children grow up and it is crazy that you have three that are married and you have 4 going on 5 grandchildren now. I have 2 daughters and 1 granddaughter. I wanted more children but I found out I had lupus then 4 other autoimmune disorders followed shortly after lupus. I love children. I used to pick up my nieces and nephew every Friday and have 5 children on the weekends. It was so much fun but, they are all grown up and all have children of their own now. Empty nest syndrome is very real and so hard. I hope you never find out how it feels.. God Bless you all…

My youngest is at 22 is very gifted with children. Congratulations Duggar family! We’re thankful for your contribution to wholesome television viewing.

My prayers are always with you and your beautiful family. I will pray Jill doesn’t have babies like I did, one pound heavier with each new boy! I had 3, started at 8lbs4oz and went to 9lbs5oz and my baby (he’s 23 now) was 10 lbs 4oz! He was the largest baby ever born in Long Beach, CA at the time. I will pray Jill doesn’t have this happen to her! Love and prayers to you all!

    Congratulations on your new baby grandson. ; ) What another blessing from Th Lord! My Dear Husband & I have been married 32 years, & just welcomed our fourth grandchildas well, Born January 23rd this year. His name is William Alan. I just love your show, & hope it continues for many years to come. Sharing your lives with the world, can’t be easy, but you All are such an inspiration & good example to so many. Know that you are making such a difference in many peoples lives .We are Christians, & raised our three children in church ,instilled Biblical values in them along the way, but they all didn’t follow them. Had I used “Babtist” guidance, & your gracious, sweet spirit, Michelle, maybe things would be different . Although , they turned out to be wonderful people , two of three are not married, but live with sig other . I have gained more patience over the years,& try to be led by The Holy Spirit, by not condemning them, but loving them unconditionally . I think thdy know where daddy & I stand. Do you have any wisdom you could share with me, that might be helpful in encouraging our children to marrying? If not, PLZ keep us in your prayers, as I you. We haven’t had the pleasure of meeting our new GS, because they live in another state, so count your blessings, that yours are near You. Love, In Christ, Mrs. Mathews
