About The Duggar Family

Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar married July 21st, 1984. At that time, they chose to use the birth control pill. They thought, “We don’t want children right now. We can’t afford them. We want children in our timing, when we’re ready.” Four years later they decided to have their first child. Then, Michelle went back on the pill, but she conceived and had a miscarriage. At that point they talked with a Christian medical doctor and read the fine print in the contraceptives package. They found that while taking the pill you can get pregnant and then miscarry. They were grieved! They were Christians! They were pro-life! They realized that their selfish actions had taken the life of their child. They prayed and asked God to forgive them, and to teach them to love children like He loves children. They asked God to bless them with as many children as He saw fit in His timing. Right after that Michelle got pregnant with twins! To date they have been blessed with 17 children, (10 boys and 7 girls) Joshua (& wife Anna), Jana & John-David (twins), Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah & Jeremiah (twins), Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer (and #18 due in January 2009!).

  • McLaughlin says:

    She look,s really tired.

    I suppose I would too, if I had not slept a full night since 1984.

  • gigantes says:

    ^^ there go the peevish, snotty comments, i guess.

    anyway… i’m certainly not a christian, and i take all of this stuff with a grain of salt since the family is certainly very upper middle class and apparently can afford to keep pumping babies out, but… these people look very happy and healthy!

    beyond that, the progeny looks disciplined, motivated and on their way to building many kinds of life skills. even much smaller families have a hard time building those values, so i give a round of applause to the duggars, notwithstanding the fact that pictures are only part of the story. but from what i see, i like. if i’m not mistaken, they have a wonderful and rare sense of cameraderie.
