Airing weekly throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, andNew 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 book 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."-- Provided by publisher.

These Duggar sisters are so humble. I've been watching The Duggars for a while now. These girls are very humble, grounded young ladies. Their faith inspire them to help other people and to have respect for everyone. Their parents have done a wonderful job raising them and their other siblings.

Inspiring and interesting book! I was curious to see how each of these girls grew up and to see their perspectives on the world around them, but what I learned was much more. There family stories surprised me and made me admire them, and all the while I felt as though I knew the true them. I really liked this book!

I simply love this book, no hypocrisy, just the simple truth. It'll load you up with encouragement. This family is definitely a great role model!

I have always enjoyed watching the Duggars and reading their books. Though I enjoyed this book, there was definitely a lot of preaching in it. I am OK with the preaching, but by the end, I was kind of tired of hearing it. ((This may be God's way of showing me that I need to try to be more like Him.)) Though I have a long way to go in my walk, this was a great reminder that everyone has struggles, but the best we can do is always strive to do good in His eyes and to share the Word with others. The latter was definitely accomplished in this book.
