    1. Right, you never know what they will do with it once they have it. Inexpensive way to get names & addresses, for starters.

    2. You know this isn't about giving away a book, it's about getting viewer data. Cable TV stations don't do anything out of the goodness of their hearts.

  13. I wonder if the part about not listening to secular music has been edited out, with Jessa and Ben listening to hip hop.

    ReplyDelete

    1. What they listen to isn't secular though. Flame and V Rose are very godly and the lyrics are so deep. My husband's Christian band actually played the same festival with them. They are the real deal. Not secular at all.

    2. This is Christian hip hop not secular. They have not violated their principles.

    I will enter it if you are doing another that doesn't exclude me as a Canadian. I am curious when they updated it, and if there will be further updates in the future, after more reflections on the "new normals" this family has since faced?
    Thanks for all you do

  35. I really miss seeing the shows with the entire Duggar family. I think that reading their books would give me a chance to watch them grow and learn more about each child. It is a real shame that their show was cancelled. I would really love to win a book written by the Duggars. It was a great show so I am sure that the books would be a great way to follow the family. Thank you for that chance to win.

  49. What are the updates in this book? What we heard about last year? What happened to the girls? If it's updates on marriage, then it should address the Josh & Anna situation. If it neglects or glosses over these things, then it isn't being up front with its readers, is it? Don't Duggar fans deserve the truth? Very sad if this fine upstanding family cannot tell their fans the truth.
