Book Review: Growing up Duggar--its all about realationships

Hi Y'all! I hope your all having a good week! I've had a little slower week which is wonderful! It seems that no matter how we plan the week it always ends up busier then expected. I was also able to work on my piano a lot more this week which was great! I can't wait for my piano lesson tomorrow and hopefully finish on of my Performance piano books :)
Anyway, here's this week's book review. Sorry it's a day late!

My mom bought me this book a week ago and I got it in the mail this last Thursday. I started reading it on Friday and finished it on Saturday. I love it! I loved reading about their family and their convictions. 
I really enjoyed the chapter on Relationship with your siblings. Being in a larger family(8 kids) I know how it is to be around your siblings 24/7, and how it can get on your nerves when they get into your stuff or never leave you alone. The Duggar girls were really encouraging on speaking kindly, loving and forgiving your siblings and building a strong relationship with them. They really emphasized the verse Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath. Responding with love and kindness sets a good example  and also doesn't damage the relationship between you. 
I would recommend this book to anyone in the teen/young adult age range. It encourages girls to honor the Lord and their parents and to seek God's will and timing in everything. It was encouraging for me to read a book by girls who have the same convictions as my family and I do, as well as some of the same problems and temptations  I face and how they have overcome them. I hope you will consider getting this book as I believe it will be a blessing and encouragement  to you.


  1. Sounds wonderful! :) Our family really focuses on sibling relationships.
    P.S I commented on your writing blog, asking how many siblings you had...well, I know now, so you don't have to bother answering it. :P

    1. Yep, quite a few :) I love meeting and connecting with people who have a lot of siblings!! It's not very common these days :)

    2. No...but God blessed our church with several families who have seven, eight, nine kids in their makes church a lot of fun! :)

  2. Glad to hear you enjoyed this book! I did when I read it. :)
    I'm looking forward to next week's review.
