Meet Our Family

There are quite a few of us!

The Parents

Jim Bob & Michelle

Jim Bob and I were married on July 21, 1984, three months after my high school graduation and three days after Jim Bob’s nineteenth birthday!

 Through the sorrow of a heart-breaking miscarriage with our second child, we began to read in the Bible that children are a blessing and a gift from God (Psalm 127:1–5). It was then that we prayed and asked Him to give us as many children as He saw fit. Fast-forward a few decades, and here we are! We have been blessed with 19 children (10 boys and 9 girls), our nephew Tyler, sons- and daughters-in-law, and new grandchildren arriving every year!

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!
