Growing Up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships
Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger Duggar
Have you ever wished you could sit down with the Duggar girls and talk to them face to face? Now you can do the next best thing. The oldest four Duggar girls have just written a book called Growing Up Duggar. We were privileged to be able to review a pre-release copy of the book.
I was so encouraged reading Growing Up Duggar. It is like sitting down with Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger and then being able to talk for hours and hours. Not only does it have many of their personal stories, but it also addresses the things we, as young women, can struggle with. Relationships is the overriding theme of the book, and I found myself relating to many of the topics.
I appreciated their take on their relationships with their parents, because it is much like our family. Sadly, this vital relationship is often neglected in too many families.
I smiled through the stories of sibling squabbles, which reminded me of those days in our family. They shared how they practically worked on eliminating sibling rivalry.
I was encouraged by the practical tips to be more positive. The Duggars are amazing examples of finding the good in people and situations.
The Duggar girls told about their struggles with self-acceptance—something many young ladies face. In this day where beauty is idolized, they discuss the importance to accept ourselves as God created us.
These are just a few of the areas addressed in Growing Up Duggar. It is an encouraging book about how the Duggar family of 19 kids operates with much biblical and practical counsel. I would recommend you pick one up and read it.
“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.”
