The Duggar girls- Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger, share all about relationships in their first book Growing Up Duggar. As stars of the TLC show 19 Kids and Counting, the Duggar girls get hundreds of letters and emails asking so many questions. They decided to write this book to answer some of those questions and share how they manage the different relationships in their lives. The Duggars have chosen to follow God with some pretty conservative Christian views and they live very counter cultural, but that is the beauty of their lives. They address relationships with self, parents, siblings, friends, boys and God. They appeal especially to young girls in their tweens and teens. They candidly share their struggles and victories. They share many great ideas for how family life works as well as values and priorities that young women should have. Each of them are deeply involved in ministry and they serve God in every part of their lives. This book is great testimony of their hearts and they share so that young women everywhere can follow their example.
I was so impressed with the Duggar girls! I hope every tween and teen reads this book. It was great hear the perspective of young girls actually living a pure and whole life even amidst the cameras that constantly surround them. They had some great stories to share and the values they hold are what I would like my daughter to have. They each have unique gifts and talents and they honestly live in a way to please God. I really like how much they respect their parents and how true they want to be for the one that God chooses for them to marry. This book has so many ideas not only for young women, but also for moms like me! How wonderful that Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger shared these great insights about their lives for others to read. I highly recommend this book be read by every young woman who wants to follow God with their whole heart.
