What does Michelle do to Recharge her Battery?

With nineteen kids, how does Michelle stay balanced? We know that she enjoys exercising on the elliptical, but what else does she do for herself?
"I love to listen to the Bible on CD," Michelle told Renelle Roberts of the Christian Broadcasting Network in a recent interview. When she needs a few minutes of personal time, the mother of nineteen retreats to her bedroom, reclines in her comfy chair, and listens to Alexander Scourby read the King James Version on a CD that the children gave her for Mothers' Day years ago. "The kids know if they come to my door and they hear Alexander Scourby, they usually don't knock." 
For more on how Michelle relaxes, watch this video from CBN:

What do you do to relax and recharge?

  1. Such a wonderful example of Christian love! Do I understand correctly that Michelle will be speaking at the Fresh Grounded Faith conference in November?

    Many blessings to this godly family!

  2. What a great reminder to ask our children what is on their hearts, if there is anything they want to tell us, or anything they want us to pray about for them!

    Thanks for sharing the video. Is there anyplace we can see the full interview?

  3. I have 6 kids and when we're done with school for the day I put the baby down for a nap and the others go play. I take about an hour before I need to start dinner and read the Duggar's blog or other friends'. I love to hear what others are doing and it really recharges me. Then I'm ready to make dinner, straighten the house, and be with my family the rest of the evening.

  7. Michelle seems like a very sweet lady and a very good mom. She seems like she cares about her kids with all her heart.

  8. Michelle and her family are prime examples of putting their faith into action!

    I recently understood that Michelle will be speaking at the Fresh Grounded Faith Conference in Nov. Is that correct? If so, I'm delighted!

    Oh, where do I go to recharge? My preference is a quiet spot at the beach.

    Blessings!

  9. Hi Cynthia!

    Sorry for not getting back to you right away. We've had a busy week :)
    You're right--Michelle is speaking at the Springfield, Missouri, Fresh Grounded Faith Conference (http://www.freshgroundedfaith.com/) in November. We will post that to our Appearances tab right away!

    Thanks for reading the blog!

  10. My mum also feels refreshed with listening to the Bible (also read by Alexander Scourby!) but on mp3 (cheaper!) :). It's so helpful to have it on mp3/cd because when you are too tired to read...it's easy to listen...
