  2. Oh! How cool. :-)

    Do you watch any movies? If so, what are your favourites?

    Do you enjoy reading? If so, what books are your favourites?

  3. How do you deal with the constant criticism and curiosity about your family? Do you struggle with being positive? I do admire your pleasant attitude.

  4. How old is Michael?

  5. How often does your entire side of the family get together?

  6. How does your experience as a mom relate to the experience growing up you and Josh had in terms of falling short, meeting or exceeding the expectations for parenthood and family life that put on you? For example are you living the spiritual life as well as your and Josh's parents did? Or are you in harmony with your partner as well as your parents were? Or do you eat as well as you did back then? Or are you feeling as well educated as you were as children? Are your children as disciplined and obedient as you were as kids and so on? In general do you think you are managing as well with everything as your parents did or are you barely holding it all together?
    (What about finances? Who could meet or beat that whiz Jim Bob?)

  9. I really enjoyed the two shows on the trip to visit your sister. Do you plan to keep on with the show? I hope you know you did just as well or better on this show as the rest of the Duggars do on the 19 Kids and Counting show. I enjoyed it as much or more, it was like watching the Flintstones in real life, Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty and family...so cute.

  10. I'd love to know what time she gets up in the morning and what time she goes to sleep at night. She seems to never rest! :) I have a 2 year old, 10 month old and am pregnant with our 3rd baby. I feel exhausted all the time and try to rest as often as possible. I don't know how she keeps her house so clean and always looks so amazing!

  11. Why did you allow your daughter's ears to be pierced at such a young age?

    ReplyDelete
  12. How do you stay motivated throughout the day? I get tired, and then lazy, and don't feel like I give my kids 100 percent. Not to mention my.husband when he gets home.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anna, you seem so sweet and kind-hearted on television. I have no questions, just a congrats on being so loving and mature. Your family is truly blessed!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Can you tell us about a routine day in your household as far as the schedule/activities are concerned? What activities/toys are favorites with your kiddos?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Would you ever allow your children to be friends with someone who was a nice person but did not share your beliefs, and how would you handle that as a parent? I have this dilemma with my daughter and would love guidance. She made friends with a very nice girl from a sweet family, but they are not religious. Should I let them play together?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hi Anna! How has it been raising your kids in the spotlight? Do you ever feel pressure to raise your kids a certain way because they are on TV? Thank You & God Bless! Your kids are beautiful and you are doing a great job! ~ Bayley

  17. What scripture do you read to get through labor? How do u handle temper tantrums? Any marriage advice?

    ReplyDelete
  18. What does a weekly menu plan consist of in your house?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi!
    I would like to ask Anna how she handles the kids when they don't listen and when they are disobedient over and over again. Or maybe she doesn't have that problem. My oldest daughter 4,5 years old is driving both me and my husband crazy pretty often. She doesn't listen or care about what we say. She has been like that ever since she was a baby! For awhile I thought that we had failed as parents even though we tried to do everything right. But know we see that our younger daughter 2 years old behave much better, she listens and she stops if we say no. But our oldest daughter almost never stops when we say no. It would be very helpful to get some advice from Anna, because I think she does an amazing job with her kids!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Please tell Anna I love how she has blossomed over the years of her marriage to Josh. I love her radiant smile and fun sense of humor!

    What homeschooling materials is she using?

    ReplyDelete
  21. What advice would you give a young wife who is trying to grow into a godly wife? How can I encourage my family back to Christ?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hello,
    Thank you for your blog. Anna is a great role model.
    I'm a mother of two and here are a few questions.
    How often does she take her children to social activities that involve other children? If so what types of activities does she take them to?
    How does she manage making dinner every night with the children?
    What are some activities she does with Michael?
    How does she control the toy situation in the home?

    ReplyDelete
  23. How does she stay fit and trim?
    What are her five top beauty products?
    How does she do her grocery shopping? Does she go each week and plan out her meals?
    What items does she always carry in her purse and diaper bag.
    How does she manage all the laundry? And getting everything put away.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Anna is so adorable! She has such a sweet heart!

  25. Can you give us suggestions on how you keep your little kids busy (esp. since you don't allow them to watch TV)? I love spending time with me kids, but sometimes I'd like them to play by themselves so I can get housework done/ take a shower. Also, how do you handle it if they fight over toys. Thanks, Laura

    ReplyDelete
  26. how many siblings do you have, how old are they, and are they all married?

    ReplyDelete
  27. As I was growing up, we went to church, but we never " brought it home", now myself as a mother, I want to raise my kids in a Godly home, and teach them how to live for Jesus; with kids at a young age, how do you go about teaching them to be obedient, and obey God in the way they would understand. Thank you for any advice.

    ReplyDelete
  28. where does her family live?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Dear Anna, when you first got married, was it hard to submit to someone other than your father? Why/why not? Thanks love your family :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would like to know if she has any aspirations besides being a mom (career wise). Or will she homeschool her kids all the way through grade 12?

    Also, what do they get paid when they star on the show?:)

    ReplyDelete
  31. How do you discipline your children? What do you suggest for picky or difficult eaters?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Anna, you seem to make friends so easily, are you called to Women's Ministry?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Dear Anna,
    Escuse me for my bad English, I´m from the Netherlands, and I always follow your blog!
    I´m 27 year old, married with Ronald for four years, and unfortunately we have no childeren. Hope God will give them soon to us!
    But my question is: how should you spend your time when you had no children?

    I´m looking forward to hear from you!

  34. I love Anna Duggar! She is a wonderful inspiration. I would ask if she ever gets frustrated with her children, and how she chooses to handle that stress? I am a born again Christian with two children, and one step child:) -God bless!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would be interested in knowing how it was for Anna to marry into a family that was so involved with the media. Was it hard to adjust to the thought of camera crews around, filming every moment of her life, whether it be just taking care of her children, or going grocery shopping?
    Thank you for giving us this chance to ask questions! -Kaitlin Weaver

  36. How do you get your kids to sleep when you are traveling? The hardest part about traveling for me is all of us sleeping in one room! (my kids are 1 and 3)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mackynzie is a clever, outspoken little girl. All of your children are cute, but the first born is a natural leader. Don't you (I'm sorry if it sounds rude, it is not my atempt) think it would be fair to give the kids a chance to go to real school? If not right now, then probably college? Also, it is great that you love them so much and spend so much time with them. I really admire your patience. I'd go crazy, I think - yet, you are a great mother. But, aside from kids - what are your dreams and plans and hopes? Don't you miss your job?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Anna I have been watching you for years. You are a great example of new mother trying to be a good wife. I am a mom of two tots hoping for number three soon and am planning to home school and work part time. But I some times I feel I don't find enough time to get all the school hours in. What works for you and what programs do you like the most?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think Anna looks great, I want to know - how does she find enough time with three little kids to do makeup and hair? Help!

    ReplyDelete
  40. What are some of your favorite quick and easy meals?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I want to ask how she keeps up with the housework while managing all 3 kiddos!!!! I have one 3 year old son and i am now finding it difficult to keep up with my housework!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I really respect your way of life-will you ever hire a nanny, or will your older children help with the care of the younger ones-like you in-laws? How do you find time to shop for clothing etc? I notices the Duggars usually color coordinate their outfits>

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hello! I would ask Anna has it been hard to live in the spotlight and what is her advice to ladies who are in a similar position (for example pastor's wives, or ladies whose husband have a leadership position) By the way, I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  44. How do u do it all? From being a wife and mom to three kids? I don't have kids or a husband, but I would love to have one, one day. What's your secret Anna?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I know the Duggar family doesn't believe in birth control, but do you believe in Natural Family Planning? Not all families - even with buying used and saving the difference - can afford 19 children. Is NFP an acceptable method, or do you leave it totally to chance?

    ReplyDelete
  46. What was it like to wait to hold hands until you were engaged? And, what was it like to wait until your wedding day to have your first kiss?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just wondering if you ever agree to spend some time with a nearby fan? I think you're such an incredible person and your family is wonderful. It'd be so nice to have a friendship with you. And not for publicity sake. Just for true honest to goodness friendship

  48. When are u and Josh having more kids

  49. What is your favorite number,color,food, and animal? I love your family.😊

  50. Love your family, and kids! We have a 13 month old nurser in our bed (she doesn't have her own room). I believe you've had babies in your room, any advice for getting her out of our bed and into her own in the same room? At this point, she's sleeping with us because she likes to feel a hand on her or snuggle up. We love it, but we need sleep and our own space back!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Have you had a hard time at all with conceiving? Is there any secrets that you have used when trying to conceive?? I know there are some of us out there that are having troubles conceiving and want any hints that may be available.

    ReplyDelete
  52. How many children do you and Josh want in total?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wondering how you manage the home while doing everything else? Do you have a cleaning schedule? Time to plan and prepare? Shopping day? etc??? What do you do to help yourself stay calm and discipline yourself to stay in control of situations when it gets a little crazy?

    ReplyDelete
  54. What was your biggest adjustment in joining the Duggar family?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hello Anna, i love the show and watch how your families are raising well mannered and Godly children. My husband and I tried for 7 years to start a family. We lost our first pregnancy with triplets at 21 weeks 6 days due to preterm labor. They were too tiny to incubate. After that loss we held onto each other and our faith and this past June our gift arrived. Twin girls Emmalyn Joy and Abygail Faith, we are in heaven. My question is how do you handle multiple children crying. Sometimes I try so hard to be patient but sometimes it is so hard. Any advice for a new mom.
    God Bless your family!

    ReplyDelete
  63. What is one thing you like about being a Duggar ( well known/ famous) and what is one thing you dislike about being well known?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Anna, I was wondering if anyone else, besides me, think you look, talk and act so much like Michelle Duggar? It almost seems like you're more her daughter than daughter in law. By the way, I love you both.

    ReplyDelete
  65. What kind of "rules" do you have set for your family and children? I know that Jim Bob and Michelle have modesty, TV, and social media rules. But what are yours?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Since you are apart of a large family, do you have a special holiday recipe you would like to share for a large family Christmas dinner?

  67. You are truly an inspiration Anna! I am a teenager but hope to be similar to you when i get older and married. I have descided to save my 1st kiss for my wedding because of you, Jill, and Jessa. Can't wait for the next season!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. From what I understand, the Duggar family doesn't attend a church, but they have church in their own home. Living apart from the family, do you and Josh have a home church where you find fellowship and refreshment with other believers?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Since you are apart of a large family, do you have a favorite holiday recipe you would like to share for a large Christmas dinner?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'd like to know, how you and Josh share the household chores?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thanks for the opportunity! First, I'd want to tell Anna that she is super encouraging to me as a new mom. I really would love to just sit in her living room and learn from her for a day! Having said that, here's my question: how do you keep your cool when you're having a heated moment in the home. (Maybe the kids are fighting, the baby's crying, or dinner is ruined.) How do you stay calm and gentle with your kids to deal with the situation?

    ReplyDelete
  72. How do you stay so positive, soft spoken and happy?

    ReplyDelete
  73. What advice do you have for a wife who is a year in to marriage and still feels that communication is a difficult thing with her husband?

    Thank you for your thoughts! You are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Anna, you are such a sweet young lady. I loved the episode where you had a lady come over and teach you new recipes and ideas. What is your favorite recipe and what is a recipe the kids like?

    ReplyDelete
  75. Looking to homeschool. Do you have any favorite curriculum yet?

    ReplyDelete
  76. Where do you get the shirts/tank tops that you wear under your blouses?
    What do you wear when cleaning the house like the bathroom?
    How do you stay warm wearing skirts in the winter?
    I really want to wear skirts, but I get so cold in the winter that it feels better to wear jeans. Also when I clean the bathroom, I can't figure out how I wouldn't get all soaked cleaning the shower. You have such cute skirts, and I never see anything cute at the thrift stores. Is there a place online that you usually purchase the longer skirts? or do you sew.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Wow, nice! Anna and Jana are my favourite Duggars :)

    1. After three "M" names, are you going to change this theme? Don't you feel limited by choosing one specific first letter?

    2. What you think about official Duggar webiste? Information included there is very out-of-date...

    3. Do your children participate in after-school activities with their peers? If yes, what kind?

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  78. why did you guys decide to move to another state for a job? If needed to move then why not either stay closer to his family or move closer to your family? to move and be by neither side of family to me does not make sense.

    Also, everyone is just posting their questions there on facebook area not on here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. What is like the curriculum that u teach mackynzie and long of the day does josh work and what do the boys do while u teach her school

    ReplyDelete
  80. I was just wondering about you and Josh were able to have a long distance courtship and what it consisted of. In the show it pretty much went right to ya'll's engagement. Could you also give some tips for young women who are single and waiting for the "right" guy?
    Thank you so much!! :)

  96. I don't actually have a question really, I just want to say you are an absolute inspiration to all young mothers I love the whole Duggar family but I absolutely am blessed by you and the way you handle your children and running a home, I too have three children (our middles are the same age, mine in April and little Micheal in July ) I always look forward to episodes about you and Josh and the kids and I mean no disrespect to anyone else in the family they are all wonderful and an inspiration themselves, but I feel a connection with you and your lovely family, faith and family are my top concern just wanted to let you know how much of a blessing you truly are! Thanks so much!

  102. Hi Anna, I am a mom to four kids 6, 4.5, 2.5 & 9 months, and I love watching "19 kids" because of all I have learned about parenting through Michelle's example and now yours as well. I am very grateful for your family's openness in letting me be a fly on the wall and learn as you learn how to raise kids in a way that pleases God. It isn't an easy road that God has called you and your family to, but thank you for your obedience to Him. I know that I am a different mom than I would have been because of the benefit of watching your experience and example. Along those lines, my question would be: What has God revealing to your most recently in your parenting journey. Is there something you can share that he has used to encourage you or that you have found inspiring or helpful as you care for your little ones? Thank you again for being faithful, and know that you are being prayed for. Shauna (Alberta, Canada)

  106. Sorry if this is a repeat my phone kind of acted strange when I went to preview...

    First just in case Anna reads this - thank you so much for being willing to be open and let cameras in your home, for boldly proclaiming your faith and for being such an encouragement to me!

    I have a lot of questions but here's my top few...first are your parents still doing prison ministry? Also for those of us trying to limit or eliminate screen time what are your favorite ways to keep little ones busy when you need to get things done? I have just 1 girl a 2 year old and I seem to be having a hard time balancing the day lately. (Please pray for me as a SAHM anybody reading this!)
    Thank you so much. Bless you and yours and Merry Christmas!!!

  109. Hi Anna, I have 3 children the same ages as yours and it's been fun going through pregnancies and watching you at the same time. My question is when do find time to spend with The Lord and what are your favorite bible study resources? It can be so tiring caring for 3 small children and I find it challenging at times. Thank you and I pray blessings to you, Josh and the kiddos.

I am a SAHM of 4 1/2 Yr old girl, 3 yr old boy and 18 mth old girl ( who doesn't like to sleep :) ) and I struggle to get showered and dressed, make- up and hair is hardly ever done. Plus I don't see many people besides the kids and my hubby, how do you stay motivated to get dressed up, makeup etc???
    Love the show and your family is such an inspiration ,

  118. When do you think parents should teach children the facts of life? On your TLC wedding episode Jim Bob had a little sit down with Josh....was that a JOKE? Really isn't that silly? What should parents do? When?

    ReplyDelete
  119. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a conversation with Anna! I admire her SO much! First, I would just like to tell her what a beautiful, wonderful wife & mama I think she is & also give her lots of encouragement for being the bold Christian gal that she is! Then, one question I have would be- where does she get her very stylish clothes? What brands of clothes does she like? She always looks so very good & i love her style. Thank you for this opportunity!

  120. Do you have prayer lists, agendas, time line schedules, on the following types of things....subjects / education lists, development lists, etc. as Michelle and Jim Bob do? Would you share them? Do you use the same ones as Michelle and Jim Bob or do you use some from your parents, did you make your own, or do you have other resources that provide these?

  121. On your road trip why did they cut jana out of it. I would loved to see her having fun. Anything other then taking care of the younger kids. After all she did fux all of jills dresses for the wedding. It would have been nice to not cut her out. But i know it wasent your doing it was the show. I liked the show more when it wasent so fixed. . Love you guys and if you have another boy have you thought of the name . Mason and girl. Madison.. enjoy your holidays. ♡ from carrie in delaware.

    My question would be: Is it hard being a part of such a famous family? I mean, I'm sure you get recognized and stopped on the street all the time, and does it sometimes get annoying? Like, maybe you just want to go somewhere without people noticing you?

Seems like we spend very little time each day (we only focus in reading and writing for now until she learns to read independently). How long do you spend daily and do you do school 5 days a week?

  128. What prompted the makeover a few years back? I first started noticing Anna's hair was styled as opposed to the wet/air dried perm waves. Then her makeup seemed to get better, then the clothes. Way to show that young mom's can still be hip moms!

My Question is about being affectionate if front of the kids.My husband and I have been married 12 years in January we have a 9 year-old girl and almost 8 year old our kids know we love each other we believe that affection is not to be done in front of them we only kiss each other in front of them if we are leaving or just coming home what is your thought because you and Josh kiss a lot on show

  142. Being a mom of 2, I already feel like adding another wouldn't allow me to get to know / invest individually into each their lives as much as I would like. I would love her opinion on that and if she feels like she knows each of her children as intimately as she desires. Thank you!

  144. With three little ones at home what does a typical day look like? Do you stick to a particular schedule?

    ReplyDelete
  145. I DO have a question for Anna. It is an old one, though. Here it goes;
    Since you clearly profess to not stress about having children and leave it up to God, IF AND WHEN that occurs, why were you so stressed when you first married and franticly tried and tried to conceive those first months and were clearly upset that it took a mere 4 months? You really came across to all of us out there in TV Land that you could think of nothing else but conception during your first 4 months of marriage. To me, that's a contradiction and we see it in the Duggar family over and over again. Please explain how this is so. GG in NC Thank you

  160. Hi Anna, Do you still get all your clothes at thrift stores? Whenever we go to thrift stores we never see cute clothes like you have! How do you feel about about cap sleeves, do they meet your modesty standards? Where did you get your wedding gown? We just loved it! Did you buy it like that or did you get it altered?

  161. I have a 4 year old and while we haven't formally started homeschooling, we are trying to get her used to the idea that school will start soon. We do letter activities, and go to aquariums, watch educational TV shows ( 1 hour max per day). She uses ABCmouse.com, but I was wondering what you do to get your young children eager to learn? We did do a preschool that was a parent co-op, but that didn't go well at all, and now I thinks he may be shying away from wanting to do school at home.
