In a delightful and personal look inside America's favorite mega-sized family, the four eldest daughters talk about their faith, their dreams for the future, and what it's like growing up a Duggar.
In this updated edition, the chapter on "courtship" has new stories and insights that reflect the experiences of the now-married Duggar daughters and how they lived out the principles of courtship all the way to the altar. Airing weekly throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" has made the huge Duggar family into a media phenomenon. The Duggar children are frequently asked, "Tell the truth; do you really agree with the lifestyle your parents have created for you?" Now, the four eldest Duggar girls--Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger--open up about the blessings and advantages of living the Duggar lifestyle.
With a backdrop of the key relationships in their lives--"relationship with self, parents, siblings, friends, boys, and God--"the four Duggar girls also open up about their own personal faith and convictions, boys, dating, peer pressure, manners, living in a large family, politics, and much more. You'll learn how the family navigates the difficult years between twelve and sixteen and what the girls look for in a man, all in a frank and fun book that will inspire teens and adults alike. Including lighthearted stories about the younger kids' antics, "Growing Up Duggar" is a wise and entertaining trip into a family like no other.
