My Book Report :)

I don't know why I feel compelled to tell you but I have read two GREAT books recently. The first, Multiple Blessings by Jon and Kate Gosselin. I am obsessed with the show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, so Jeff bought me the book as one of my birthday presents. I really enjoyed it. I love big families and thought it would be entertaining. It begins when they got married and follows thru the birth of their twins and then sextuplets and the hard pregnancy it entailed.

The second, another big family, is The Duggars 20 and Counting. They also have a TLC show but I have only caught a few episodes of that. Yes, they have 17 kids and she is due to deliver #18 in January. Also begins when they got married but they face many more hard times the past 25+ years and have an amazing faith. They live their lives different than most of us but really, probably better.. you read and judge for yourself.

Both of these books have a theme of "look at all God has pulled us through and let us show us how He provided for us", which I love. They are families who sometimes had to have blind faith (although I believe all faith is blind) to survive and thrive thru many difficult, testing times by falling at His feet and admitting "I am nothing with You". Read and let me know what you think but I think you will be blessed thru the words that have written.
