Q: How many home births has Michelle experienced?
A: Two of Michelle's children have been born at home (Jinger and Joseph).

Q: How many episodes have the Duggars filmed?
A: The season nine finale of 19 Kids and Counting, which aired May 19th, 2015, was the Duggars' 244th episode. The series was pulled from TLC on May 23rd, 2015, and canceled on July 16th, 2015.
                                    
Q: Do the Duggars use coupons?
A: Most stores they shop at are wholesale and do not accept coupons. Jim Bob also admits that they do not have enough time to coupon. 

Q: Why is it a family rule not to dance?
A: It is not a rule but is a personal conviction that both Jim Bob and Michelle share.

Q: Do the Duggars give their kids timeouts?
A: Yes, but typically not for correction. When the children are becoming overly rowdy, Michelle tells them to grab a book and sit quietly to calm down.

Q: How do Jim Bob and Michelle effectively bathe their little ones on a regular basis?
A: It's an assembly line. They gather all the necessary items (pajamas, towels, diapers, etc), fill the tub, and try to bathe the cleanest child first.

Q: What brought upon the need to bring 19 children into an overpopulated world?
A: "One of the greatest myths in today's society is that the world is overpopulated," says Jim Bob in a recent episode. "By raising these children to love the Lord and to serve and love others...that hopefully is going to make a difference for good in our world," says Michelle.

Q: What religion are the Duggars?
A: Independent Baptist

Q: How large is the Duggar' house, and how much did it cost?
A: 7,000 square feet. The original kit that they purchased from Kodiak Steel Homes cost $82,000 but had defective I-beams. The owner of the company sent out a new set and graciously allowed the Duggars to keep the old ones. For an extra $5,000, Jim Bob was able to purchase enough supplies to use all of the beams, which resulted in a home twenty-four feet longer than the family had originally planned for--at a bargain price.

Q: How did the Duggars become debt-free?
A: After working through Jim Sammon's Financial Freedom Seminar, Jim Bob and Michelle sold their home and rented until they had saved up enough to buy a fixer-upper. They began following the motto "Buy Used and Save the Difference" and have been debt-free for years.

Q: What web filter do the Duggars use to keep their kids safe on the internet?
A: The Duggars use TotalNetGuard from American Family Online.

Q: What are the names of the songs that the Duggars sing as a family?
A: The Duggars' favorite songs to sing include: "I've Been Redeemed," "It's Through the Blood," "I'm Standing on the Solid Rock," "May the Lord, Mighty God," and "Sweeter Gets the Journey." 

Q: Would the Duggars consider adoption?
A: Jim Bob and Michelle have prayed about adoption and are waiting to see what God has in store for their family.

Q: How does Michelle put her little ones to sleep?
A: Over the years, Michelle has purposed to make bedtime fun. She teaches them to obey joyfully, rather than grumbling or complaining. To calm her little ones down, she will often read aloud, play a CD of melodious music, or encourage them to lie quietly and sing a song to Jesus. Before they drift off, Michelle prays with her children and asks God to give them beloved sleep.

Q: How much do the Duggars spend on groceries? 
A: $3,000 on an average month. They do one big, monthly shopping trip, as well as multiple smaller trips in between.

Q: How many hours each week do the Duggars spend filming their show?
A: The TLC film crew is with the Duggars for three days a week, a few hours at a time. One of those days is spend conducting five-minute interviews with each family member.

Q: Where can I find a copy of the Character Qualities that the Duggars have mentioned?
A: Click here to view the chart in a PDF.

Q: Why so many "J" names?
A: You may be surprised to hear that Jim Bob and Michelle did not set out to have a brood of children with "J" names. As new parents, they fell in love with the name Joshua, after the courageous biblical character. Nearly two years later, Jim Bob and Michelle were blessed with twins. The two names that they chose, Jana and John-David, just happened to start with the letter "J." Not knowing how many more children God would give them, the young couple decided to name their next child, Jill, with a "J" name as well, just in case she was their last. As their family grew, Jim Bob and Michelle continued the tradition so that none of their children would feel left out. The family has had a lot of fun choosing unique "J" names over the years; everyone likes to join in on the action!

Q:  How do the Duggars patiently train their children to complete household tasks?
A: Jim Bob and Michelle purpose to praise their children ten times more than they correct them. According to Jim Bob, when parents give up their right to a spotless home, then they are free to focus on the positive and praise their children for the things they have done right. Instead of reprimanding a well-meaning child for splashing water all over the kitchen counter, praise them for washing the dishes. When a little one spills milk on the floor while fixing breakfast, praise them for their initiative. After all, practice makes perfect.

Q: Are the Duggars part of the QuiverFull movement?
A: The Duggars write in their second book, A Love That Multiplies: "Even though Wikipedia and some Internet blogs report that we are part of a QuiverFull movement, we are not. We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives" (page 92).

Q: How many children did Jim Bob and Michelle have when they began filming? 
A: Before picking up a weekly TLC series, the Duggars filmed five, hour-long specials. The first, "14 Children and Pregnant Again," shows the birth of Jackson (baby 15). "Raising 16 Children" documents Johannah's debut, and Jennifer's entrance into the big world is recorded in "Duggars' Big Family Album."

Q: Do the Duggars have issues with visitors dropping by unannounced?
A: Yes. Jim Bob and Michelle enjoy meeting fans, but their primary concern is to protect their children. For that reason, they have opted to install a fence around their yard and have barred entrance to their driveway with a gate.

Q: Where do the Duggars purchase their swimwear?
A: If you have watched the show, you have probably noticed the Duggars splashing around in a friend's pool or zipping down a homemade slip n' slide. Or perhaps you watched them experience the Dead Sea during their recent Israel expedition. Duggar swimwear consists of wetsuits or swim trunks and shirts for the boys and WholesomeWear for the girls.

Q: How can the Duggars justify having a TV show when they don't have TV service?
A: In their second book, the Duggars admit the irony of starring in a weekly reality show but not allowing broadcast television into their home. While they are not against TV, they do not agree with much of the content portrayed on the tube. Jim Bob and Michelle and the kids would rather spend their time being active and enjoying family game nights. They see their show as a family ministry.

  1. I just learned that the Bates family has a one hour special on this evening. Hooray! I am truly excited; I really enjoy watching when they visit the Duggars. Both families are such an inspiration- perfect examples for American families, especially our youth. Jim Bob and Gil need to start their own network featuring only shows that are Christian-based, representing values and lifestyles that we all should aspire to. Thanks Jim Bob and Michelle for opening your lives and home to the rest of us and giving us all something to strive for. God bless!

  2. I am grateful to the Duggars for opening their home and sharing their lives with the public. The Bible says few among you should become teachers because teachers have to live by a higher standard, James 3:1. I think that the Duggars are teaching the public about living an abundant life in Christ and I think they take the challenge of being his ambassadors seriously. I have gained from this Godliness.

  12. Just saw a post that says your family spends $3K a month for groceries? Is this a typo? I fed my family of ten for $100 a week....doubling would make that $200 a week times 4= $800. Even if it was rounded to $1K...that's a lot different than $3K.

    Hi Joan of Ark,

    $3,000 is what Michelle told the Today Show this week. There are many factors that could affect the number, including where you live, the stores you shop at, whether or not you buy in bulk, what you buy, and the ages and appetites of the kids.

  18. I was wondering if you could answer this question, Lily and Ellie. Do the Duggar girls ever get teased or looked down on for being modest. If they do, how do they deal with it. I wear modest skirts and swimwear, and people laugh and tease me for doing that. I know that this is the way the Lord wants me to dress, so I try not to let it get to me, but it can be hard. Thanks!

  32. April 28th anonymous, I have no doubt the Duggar girls get teased and I'm so sorry. You. Do too i am guessing you are a teen or young adult and I can tell you that these days will end sooner than you know and people will grow out of teasing you so stand strong on your belief of modesty don't look done on those who don't share your views and before you know it you will be old enough that people won't care how you dress, the may even say sorry. I know you posted this months ago but I hope you read this, please tell me when you do xx Lisa

  33. Hi Lisa! Thank you for answering my question. :) I am a teenager, and because of the modesty, not a typical one. I really appreciate your advice. Most girls my age aren't as modest as I am, so I guess they find my modesty odd, which I am okay with. I will stick with my way! It is nice to know people, like you, care enough to answer my question. I am the only one in my family that believes in modesty, so it can be difficult at times, but thanks to you, I'm gonna stick with it!!! God bless you!

  48. Hello. I am just going to ask a question that's been bugging me. If the Duggars are Independent Baptists, why don't they strictly use the KJV Holy Bible? I've looked on one of their their websites and they don't use it. No offense toward anyone. I'm just wondering.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi Lily and Ellie,
    I was wondering...If the Duggars are Independent Baptists, then why do they not go to a church where a Pastor is there to teach and to exhort? I know they have home church, but that is not Scriptural. The Bible says we are to have a man of God leading us, a Pastor. Do you know why they do not believe this? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Where does it say in the Bible that there has to be a "man of God" teach us? I've only read that no man teaches only the Holy Spirit....."organized church" came out of the catholic mindset, all of the early churches were home churches that studied the torah and past around the epistles to be copied and passed on to the next home church ;)
      God Bless!

      Delete
    2. The Bible says Where two or three are gathered in my name there am I in the midst of them. Matthew 18:20 KJV

      Delete
    3. If you read the Bible, it is rather obvious that early churches were organized institutions, with established elders, deacons, etc. Most of the New Testament was written to organized churches. Where they meet is irrelevant, but there are no examples of single family home churches.

      Regarding two or three gathered, context is key. That chapter is speaking of "organized" church discipline, and the two or three is referring back to the witnesses to an offense.

  61. Hi, Mostly I enjoy watching the Duggars. Although I don't believe the same as they do it is good to see moral people in this world. The two things that irritate me about them is that they believe only their religion is correct(it annoyed me when Jim Bob was asking the man in Scotland if he was a Christian) and the fact he says it's a myth that the world is overpopulated. DUH, true there are areas of the world where few or no people live but that is because they are uninhabitable for various reasons. Maybe JB Should send his kids to some of the areas that are nothing but 130degree desert with little or no water,and areas where food can't be grown due to lack of water and or fertile soil and other types of lands that for whatever reasons people can't live and prosper. THEN I will agree with him. Just because there is empty land in the world doesn't mean it is useful for people to live in.

    Why do you think that all IFB members do or should use only the KJV? Do all not IFB people use only the NIV? NO. People have the right to think for themselves regardless of what denomination they belong to. Perhaps the Duggars have done their own research into Bible translations and learned the truth about KJV Onlyism, which is something KJV Only types refuse to do. Kudos to the Duggars for not letting themselves be boxed in by a legalistic standard that ties them only to the 400-year-old English of the KJV!

  66. Life looks very busy in the Duggar household! I'm intrigued by the film crew and all that they witness. Sometimes the little ones get a little rambunctious. Has anyone on the film crew ever had to "step in" and rectify a situation or prevent a mishap? Do Jim Bob and Michelle allow the film crew to take an active role in their family when a situation calls for it?

Also cable jas many other shiws on,u dont perfere the Duggers,then go watch PBS (cartoons),seems suitable foe ur childish comments

    We attend their church and can't even answer this one. JimBob likes to make everyone watch those Embassy videos pretty much all of the time. Occasionally, one of the men in the church are allowed to share something from God. It is a very sad thing to have so many strong believers with no meat ever being taught from the word of God.

  73. The Duggars are truly a lovely and spiritual family. I just don't understand why the females only wear dresses. It really doesn't make sense to me. I find it to be demeaning if that is all they are allowed to wear. I don't understand how a pair of nice pants is showing off their knees or upper thighs. Does it say in the bible that females are only allowed to wear skirts? I am not trying to be disrespectful, but in looking things up on the issue of skirts, I can't find anything that makes sense to me. Thanks!

  74. To answer a couple of questions:

    Having grown up IFB like the Duggars, though not as strictly, I can answer a couple of questions. No, the IFB's definitely do not use the NIV. They almost all exclusively use the KJV. Some are KJV only, and some not. Most would agree with the idea that the KJV is the best possible translation that is taken from the most credible sources. If you'd like to know more about that, there is a video on Youtube that explains the KJV pretty well, though to warn it is KJV only - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNZ-sOzXWEk.

    As far the comment from Shelly Higgins. Yes, the first churches were churches based on the Jewish law, because at the time, Peter and the Jesus' other Apostles didn't have any other scripture.

    Paul's churches on the other hand would have been much more similar to the churches of today. He is the one who brought the message of Christ to the Gentiles. He is also the one who introduced Deacon's and "Bishops" or what we now call Ministers or Pastors, and gave rules concerning what they were and what they were not to be (I Timothy chapter 3).

    The Baptist movement is historically believed to have stemmed from those churches. John Bunyan and others like him having taken their ideas from those Pre-Catholic/Pre-Reformation Christians.

Why wont Jim Bob and Michelle make a garden and have live stock at home since they try to eat healthy, they got lots of hands to work in garden. they would safe 3rd of the $$$$ on groceries.

  99. It amazes me that people get on here and say the cruel things they do. The Duggars are such an inspiration. I admire Michelle for her Christ like spirit and love. For those who say she does nothing.... She does more than you think. When you have children, it is wise to teach them responsibility. They are only filmed 3 days a week, so we don't see EVERYTHING. As far as their finances, they are debt free and do not accept outside help. I have seen several episodes where Jim Bob has donated money or helped the less fortunate. I also know Michelle has stated several times that they are about serving others and teaching their children the same.
    They don't think TVs are wrong, it's what's on them that's wrong and therefore they choose not to have one. What's the point? They do their TV show as a ministry and it has blessed and touched many lives. They are an encouragement and an example of what a Christian family should be. If you don't like the show or what thru believe, don't watch it... It's that simple! :)

  100. Having grown up IFB, there is much too much about this family that disturbs me. I cringe watching the Duggars more than I do when watching Sister Wives. At least Kody and his 4 wives teach their children how to have independent thought and prepare them for living in the real world. 18 years in the IFB bubble taught me nothing but fear for anything and anyone who is different from the robot I was taught to be. The Duggars are classic IFB.

  101. I would like to know the Duggars views on homosexuality. If one of their children were gay would they disown them or would they show them love. I have a gay child and I love him unconditionally. Would they be as accepting? This question is a serious not to be profane, nor derogatory, nor in poor taste. God loves all his children the same.

  104. I think it's interesting how alot of ppl have jumped on this "bully bandwagon" , and are quick to call someone "homohobic" or accuse them of a so called "hate crime". Then the same ppl come on here and say the nastiest things about this family. Sounds like the same thing they call bullying to me. Just because they don't embrace or agree with your " alternative" lifestyles doesn't mean they hate anyone. Just like anybody else that comes on TV and promotes their beliefs, no matter how sick or twisted, they are doing the same. Practice what you preach, mind your own business, and if you don't like them or their beliefs, then change the channel. No one is making you watch.

  125. What could possibly be wrong with dancing. There is such thing as dancing that isn't dirty. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yes, children are a blessing but not everyone can provide for their children the lifestyle every human being deserves. If you cannot afford a child and provide for them, you should NOT have children. It is not a blessing to have children who grow up in poor living conditions. The world is over populated, contrary to what they say. And mostly with people who grow up in poverty. There aren't enough resources. So I strongly disagree with the Duggars encouraging having lots of children. Would God really want people to keep having children when they are just setting up another human being to live a miserable life? I think not. The Duggars should stress that not everyone is called to have large families. Especially when they are unable to provide for them. Or in the case of Josie, the mother putting her child at risk of health concerns by having children at an older age. That is not okay. She was not put in a situation where she HAD to have kids later in life. God didn't say multiply. He said be FRUITFUL and multiply. I think everyone should keep that in mind before having children. The Duggars have superb Christian beliefs and family values, but they are ignorant of the realities of poverty. Birth control is not a bad thing when it prevents suffering. Or prevents depriving the children you already have.

  140. I recently watched the 19 Kids and Counting show where Michelle and Jim Bob took Jessa and her new boyfriend Ben on a double date and I found Jim Bob's behaviour quite inappropriate, He was "hugging" Michelle and then asked her if what he was doing "turned her on!" I thought this was extremely in appropriate behaviour especially in front of Jessa and Ben and then for Michelle to comment on the fact that she and Jim Bob can do this because they are married and even Jim Bob says he wants the children to see that he and their mother are affectionate with each other because they love each other is contradictory. It's as if they were taunting Jessa and Ben. Michelle even says to the camera that the kids could not do this until they were married and then she laughs! Very strange behaviour. I'm pretty liberal and I would never dream of saying something so inappropriate in front of my kids. Showing affection is one thing but Jim Bob's comments were offensive. Did anyone else watch the show and have any comments on this?

    JimBob did address what he does for a living in several episodes, including a "question-answer episode". He said that they both got their realtor's license when they first married, and realized real estate is a very good way to make money, so they did things like buy an old chicken coop building which they rebuilt themselves and turned into a self-storage facility. They have properties with cell towers on them, which is a good money-maker. They have rental properties, and they follow the principles of the financial class they took, and once they were debt free, they have maintained the debt-free policy. When you know how to stay debt-free, and you know how to renovate and redo properties yourself, you can build your own house, you're able to maintain those properties without having an 8 to5 job. This couple planned to be able to both be available to their children as they grew up. They should be applauded for being so available to their children.

  155. Well, of course, remember - you can't compare apples to oranges (pun totally intended lol). Good, organic, healthy food - fresh food - fruits/veggies, high grade meat products - food can be either very cheap, or very expensive, depending what you buy. My family is one with six members - two parents, four children - and I remember going shopping with my mom every week and the meat bill, alone, was usually almost $500 a week. Just for meat, not including all the fruit and vegetables and potatoes, drinks etc...and teenagers can eat quite a large volume of all of the above. I remember sometimes my mom would bring home cartons of egg-nog at Christmas, they only sell them in 1.5 or 2 litre cartons, and one of my brothers would pretty much devour the entire thing in one shot, lol.

  176. RE Home church: There's absolutely _no basis_ for saying this is "unscriptural." Many of the early believers met in homes (e.g., Rom. 16:5).

    What matters isn't the venue - but what goes on there. If the activities are consistent with what Scripture requires of regular church meetings, then there's no problem holding the meetings in someone's home!

    ReplyDelete
  177. I hope that the children are allowed to at least learn about evolution, so that as they get older they can decide for themselves if it is a "fallacy", as Jim Bob has called it. Each one of those kids seems very smart and they all have a wonderful opportunity ahead of them. Without accepting evolution, they are going to have a lot of trouble entering career fields like medicine, science, engineering, physics, or biology. Personally, I don't see how it's necessary to one's faith to believe that humans coexisted with dinosaurs. Evolution is overwhelmingly accepted as fact, even by the pope and most Christians.

  180. The Duggars seem like nice people but honestly their religion seems really out there. I mean being religious is fine but I don't think their kids are getting enough exposure to the rest of the world to be able to make their own decisions on what they believe. I can understand them wanting to make sure their kids say religious in some way or another but I think they should be allowed to make some of their own choices about what they believe
