Book Review and a Give Away!!

This post will stay at the top until the give away is over.  Please scroll down to see newer posts!!

Vision Forum sent me a book to review.  I am sure that most of you have heard of the Duggar family.  They get a lot of attention both good and bad.  I never really understand the bad though.  They are debt free, have lots of children, yes, but they are well behaved and loved and really normal.  I read their first book and loved it, but this one made them so down to earth.  They face the same problems that we all face, but theirs is multiplied so they have made sure they are doing all they know to do in their training.   

They share the trials and triumph of their little Josie who was born three and a half month premature and weighed just twenty two ounces.  Michelle also had a health issue at that time and things were touch and go.  They walked what they talked.  They turned to the Lord and He led them through those days.  

There are lots of pictures and recipes all through the book.  They give a lot of practical ways to train your children and give them heart to serve and reach out to others.  They talk about preparing their older children for purity and marriage and careers.  I think some of their beliefs might even surprise you.  

This book is well worth reading and I am thrilled to announce, I also have a copy to give away.  Leave a comment below telling why you would like to win this book.  You will have until March 1st at midnight, EST to leave your comment.  We will draw a name on the 2nd of March.  

A Love That Multiplies is available from Vision Forum.  It is currently on sale for 20% off.

Hi Marci, Thanks for offering this book as a give away. I watch the "19 Kiids And Counting". Show faithfully. I think they are an amazing family. I was sad when she lost the last baby. Please enter my name in the give away.

I cannot believe it! I finally caught one of your giveaway posts before it was over! LOL...anyway I'd like to win it because we have kept up with the Duggars for years until this past year when things were so crazy. I was sad to hear they lost their little one.

Yay! I see the submit button :) anyways I'd like to win this book because I would love to know more about their lifestyle and beliefs. Plus maybe it will have some bits in there about answering the more difficult questions children ask. Mine is about that age when all the questions just sort of pour out constantly and sometimes I find myself a little bit lost and worry that I might be leading her in the wrong direction when I can't get my thoughts out clearly.

I would love to win this book, because I admire the Duggars very much and think I could learn much from them.

I admire the Duggars and I am blessed very much by their example. I would love to read it and then pass it on to my daughter-in-love. She is very fond of them and is very blessed by their example also.

Love the Duggars. Have some of their DVD's and plan on getting more as they go on sale:) I appreciate that they told TLC that they would do the show only if their faith in the lord was not edited out.

I LOVE the Duggers. I watch them on tv every week. I think I'm a little obsessed, lol. I haven't read any of their books yet. I find it amazing that they live debt free with all the children they have. I have two children and have so much debt. I would love a copy of this book.

My daughter Megan is expecting and has been having some pregnancy problems. Would love to give her this book if I win the give away. Love the Duggers and their faith.
