In a rare look inside America’s favorite mega-sized family, the four eldest girls talk about their faith, their dreams for the future, and what it’s like growing up a Duggar.
Airing weekly throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, 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 open up about their own personal faith and convictions, boys, dating, 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 audiobook 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.

The fact that I finally bought an audio book that my wife listened to it with me.
The authors way they brought the book to life with feeling and love.
All of them!
The way that they conduct their family affairs.
Buy this book if you want to build a string family!

This is a great little book. It is rather short and sweet. One of my closest friends is getting ready to foster three precious sisters and already has three boys of her own, and I couldn't wait to share this with her because there are so many great ideas for families and child raising. My other closest friend has five children and she learned a lot too. I think these gals have a great message and a great delivery. This will not be a book for everyone.

I love this book! These girls are amazing and can relate to other teens. I was surprised. It taught me a lot on how to be a better parent to my teen daughter. It also taught me things to think about as being a daughter myself. Even though having one child myself as planned & no regrets. We don't dress the way they do. I wish I had this audiobook when I was a teen myself. It would have saved me so much heartache & pain. This book taught me how to deal with it. I bought the book & audiobook in hopes my daughter will read it. I have heard her make comments like I hear in the book. She is in public school since grade 7. This book can help her and guide her father and I in many ways. The book has brought me closer to God. I learned a lot. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about the Duggars and anyone with children in their lives. 😄
Follow me on Goodreads too!
I supposed I should have realised that this book was meant for teens (or even pre-teens) not 40-year olds!!
I love 19 Kids and Counting, and really enjoyed both books written by Michelle and Jim Bob - but this one was not as interesting. I enjoyed the various family anecdotes, but I am definitely not the target audience!
This was such a great book. Listening to the girls read the book in their own words made it that much better.
I love these girls. I wish they were my friends in real life. They are amazing and inspiring. I am only 22 and I've gained so much wisdom on how I want to raise my future children. I pray one day God grants me true friends like them. I pray for more positive influences in the world like them. God is so good! Praise Jesus for this book!
What a beautiful family with a great desire to glorify God! This book is such an inspiration! I pray that there will be many more that they will write as God directs them. I did not want it to end!
Used this to teach character in our homeschool. I had planned to read it myself only but when I heard the wonderful message I decided it would go along perfectly with our character study.
