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

  4. Thanks for posting this - it was very interesting! I saw the Bates on the Duggars show by watching on youtube - it actually has full shows on there! I love watching these MumÅ› of many - what beautiful women they are!
    Have a wonderful day

  5. Emily, I enjoyed that clip.
    What an interesting family :-)
    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 :-)

  9. I'm not sure we could have pulled off eighteen (we have four)... but wished we had more. We used to watch the Duggars when we had cable. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about the Bates also.
