Encouragement for Large Families

Buy at

I always love to see other families who embrace children as blessings. I also love to see how they manage so I can learn from them. We have never had cable to watch the Duggars, though I have seen a few clips of them online. Here is another family who is actually friends of the Duggars. The Bates have 18 children.

Hope you enjoyed it!


  1. I learn about the Duggar's online and watch some video on TLC website and meet the Bates there, Love both families:-)

  2. Oh neat. I will have to check the TLC website.

  3. Yes, I don't have cable either. I've never seen one show. I am interested in getting that large family logistics book just for curiosity and seeing what I can apply.

    Thank you for your sweet, encouraging comment on my blog today. God bless you!

    Love you too!

    Mrs. A

    You might enjoy checking out my friend Gae's blog "Cherished Hearts At Home".
    She has 11 lovely children and is expecting #12 in May.
    A hard working home-loving, homeschooling mother, Gae astounds me with what she does to 'cherish' her family!
    She's a lovely woman of God :-)
