A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year blessings go out to our favorite Duggar family who just recently received what they called 'the ultimate Christmas gift from God' their newest daughter, Jordan Grace...
This past weekend I just finished reading the book Jim Bob is holding '20 and Counting' and I highly recommend it. It gave fascinating and powerful insights and testimony on how they are living and lived their lives for God in areas of stewardship, finances, raising children and so forth.
I personally enjoyed and will implement some of their ideas in my own home this year such as the 'yes ma'am & chore charts' (the children get paid pennies for obedience) and the 'family bank' (which holds each child's account information in a notebook--easy for mom to manage without going to the bank and children losing their money--if the child wants to purchase something simply consult the bank notebook) I especially enjoyed the fact that frequently asked questions they get from emails were answered and frugal family recipes were also included. This book is definitely one you will want to pick up!

I was impressed by their oldest daughter Jana, who you can watch making 15 pies for the holidays---- definitely makes you think about how our daughters should be using their time wisely! Thanks for the inspiration, Michelle, Jim Bob and your beautiful family!
