Jim Bob Duggar has been married to Michelle since 1984. Together they have 19 children. The Duggar family has a wealth of knowledge and experience in raising children.
Jim Bob recently revealed on the Duggar family website that when Michelle and him were first married, they thought about having only one or two children. However, reading Psalms 127: 1-5 changed their entire outlook. They truly believe that each child is a blessing and a gift from God.
The couple has tried to raise all of their 19 children the right way. Facing the heartbreaking revelations of his first born son’s recent scandals, Jim Bob offered his advice to fathers everywhere.
“A great way to start being the spiritual leader and coach of your home is to ask Jesus to forgive you for the things you have done wrong (1 John 1:9) and ask Him to take over the steering wheel of your life. (Ask your wife and children for forgiveness also.) God has promised He will freely give the ability to make wise decisions to anyone who asks and seeks Him (James 1:5). Purpose to read the chapter of Proverbs that corresponds to the day of the month with your family daily. Also, commit to pray with your wife everyday. Start protecting your family by removing books, magazines, television, or internet that have worldly or sensual content. Replace them with good things like wholesome music, biographies of great Christians, good old-fashioned family fun and games. Love God with your whole heart and look for opportunities to serve others as a family and tell others about our Saviour.”
