  1. Oh! I love seeing the shows about the Duggars! I usually find myself somewhat misty-eyed by the end because I am so overwhelmed by their faith, kindness, love, and gentleness. I wish I were half the mother that Michelle is! What an extraordinary family!

  2. I had read about this online last night, but thank you for your post. It made it seem more personal. Not like a "news" article. Loved the video clip!! The Duggars are extraordinary people.

  3. It's a shame she isn't following God's design for breastfeeding which would give natural, God-intended spacing of her children. . .

  4. Dear Anonymous,

    I understand people have their own convictions about spacing, but let's be careful not to be negative and instead be a source of encouragement to others.

    Many blessings...

  5. I visited another blog this morning in which some very awful people actually cursed the blog writer's children because he dared to post something positive about this family. You should be very proud of the lovely readers you have!
    I loved the video clips, thank you for posting them!

  6. Hello Fuentes family from the Duggars! Just a friendly note to Anonymous... FYI: I do breastfeed my babies, with no supplementation, I just happen to be one of those few women that start their cycle at 8 weeks anyway. I whole heartedly encourage breastfeeding. Michelle D.

  8. Mrs. Duggar is such a sweet and Godly woman. I just read this post from years past, and it amazes me how much this one family has changed society for so much better. Me and my husband have also give our family size up to the Lord, and we are so thankful for such inspirational families like the Duggars. My God continue to bless their families, and yours as well. :)
