I would LOVE to meet the Duggers, I don't know what I would say, I'd just like to know then personally.

No, but this summer I was secretly hoping to as we travelled through Arkansas. We even went by their town, but did not stop or search out their home... cause that would have been creepy of us. I did want to, though. ;) I wish I could just live with them for a week and observe their living style. Seriously! I know I could learn so much from them. They are an inspiration!

Nope I have not met the Duggars. I would like to meet them if they came to my area.

I have met the Duggars before! It felt like a dream to see them in person after always seeing them on TV!! I met them when they were at Southeast Christan Church in Kentucky. I even saw myself on the episode called 'Duggars Speak Out'! The Duggars are truly amazing! I admire their faith!

I would love to meet the Duggars! They are so inspirational and would just love to glean as much information as possible and learn from them if I could meet them.

I'd really enjoy meeting them. I'd like to ask Michelle how with so many children, does she find time for herself and what she likes to do to relax, unwind, or maybe pamper herself.

I haven't met the Duggars before, but I would DEFINITELY love to!!

Amelia said...

Our family would love to meet the Duggar family. Hubby always laughs when we see the show because we think the same way on so many things!

I was hoping to meet them at a family camp this year but they didn't attend. Phooey! : )

We do know one of Anna's sisters and she is a very sweet and Godly woman.

The Duggar family seems very sweet and are a great encouragement to our family.

Thank you for your sweet blog!

I would love to meet them and discuss family life. My family includes a young man that could be the twin of Josiah!! It would be great for them to meet and have a pic taken :)

Peace

The closest I've ever been to a Duggar (lol) was when my Husband called Josh at his car lot...Josh answered and my hubby put him on speaker. Live and in person though...nope I never have met them. I so would love to! I'd even love to meet Amy, and grandma. [= That would be awesome =o] I have a pretty good chance of meeting them someday though...because we just live a couple hours a way from them so...who knows! Maybe we'll bump into eachother at a conference, or ALDI's! :) haha...(we like shopping at AlDI's Grocery too) :o) Maybe us going to Springdale, Fayettvill*, and Rogers will increase our chances of meeting them rofl! We're leaving in 6 days or so! Lord will it =D

No I haven't met them but would LOVE to. They are the perfect example of what a "functional" family should be like. I love how their kids love each other and don't act like it's a burden to help each other out. I also love how patient Michelle and Jim Bob are. If I ever met them, I'd love them to come to my house to help me and show me some of their discipline techniques. I have a 4 year old son that is out of control and nothing we've tried work on him. I would LOVE to see how they would go about "disciplining" him.

No, I don't have children but by closely observing other mothers this is what I have gathered: There really is no fancy technique for mothering, just love them with the love of Christ and discipline them with the love of Christ. -love covers over a multitude of sins. Prayer, and a whole lot of patience is key. I believe Michelle's faith and dedication to Jesus is what her "secret" is. [= When you've got Jesus living in you and abiding with you -he'll work through you. Having Christ in your heart makes a BIG difference -a better one. "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33! [=

I would LOVE to meet the Duggars!! They have been such an inspiration to me. I decided to homeschool my children because of them and have made sure to put God at the center of everything in my life.

Lily and Ellie-

You know about the Name That Duggar quiz right? Well, I created a new quiz that is basically the same thing but with new pictures!

You can take it here: http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/story.php?title=duggar-family-quiz-can-you-identify-them-all


Thanks!

Sara said...

I haven't meet the Duggar's But would love too. It certainly would be a dream come true. I would love to not only meet them but spend time with them and get to know them. I would love to learn from them if given time to spend time with them. My daugheter loves them too and would love to spend time with them. She knows all the names in order and can write them and is only 6

Have not, but I would love to. We actually live in Knoxville, TN and I often wonder if I'll ever bump into the Bates family and the Duggars visiting! I'd just love a couple of hours to listen to Michelle. I'm a relatively new young mom (26yr old mother of a 3 an 1 year old) and I feel like she has more wisdom to offer than I could possibly soak up! The family is a Great encouragement!

Libby said...

It would cool to meet The Duggars in real life but I would love to meet them. I wonder how they are in real life. I think they would be down to earth and really kind.

Donesa Mann said...

I meet the Duggars when they came to the Great Passion Play. What a sweet family. Hope they come back to Eureka and act in the Play again. www.greatpassionplay.com

Stacey said...

I haven't met them, but I would LOVE to spend a week in their home, learning to be a gentle and quiet mother like Michelle.

I met the Duggars two years ago at a Home School Conference and they were the sweetest, genuine people. Jim Bob talked to my husband about finances for about and hour and a half and even gave us their home number and all kinds of resources. Their kids were really friendly especially Jill who talked to us for a while about J names since everyone in my family growing up was a J too :). Michelle radiates joy which though to some degree comes across on the show, it does not do her justice. She is one of the neatest people I have met and God's word comes from her mouth effortlessly: she can pull forward more scripture from memory and weave it into discussions than I have ever experienced and I could soak that kind of wisdom in for quite sometime. It was a wonderful experience meeting them. They don't act like stars with any pretense.

I (unfortunately) have not met the Duggars, but would love to! I do know people who live near to them, but not well enough to warrant a visit where I could "bump into" them. (How CREEPY could that be??)

I would probably ask more indepth questions than are asked/answered on the Show (regarding) their religion. I would also just love to "fellowship" with them :)

lisa said...

I have not met the duggars but would like to. @ Cathy H. I have my nephew and he is 4 and wantover do i cannot get him to listen and nothing helps. Anyone have any advice?

Yes, I have personally met Jana, Jill, Jessa, Jinger and Joy. I talked quite awhile with Joy and Jinger and I even talked with Jessa on the way to the dining hall at the ATI Conference 2012. They gave me a card and each of the girls signed it. The really cool thing is that we stayed in the same hotel!!! I saw Jinger reading her Bible in the breakfast room. :) I wish I could have taken a picture with them. :( At least I got to meet them. =D

I am very blessed by a wonderful 15 yr old daughter and we would love to spend "A day with the Duggars". We live in Springfield, MO and I know it would be a life changing and wonderful learning experience. We admire them greatly and they have a special place in our heart. If there is ever any opportunity to meet or spend some time with the Duggar's we would welcome that with open arms.

Before i die i want to be a duggar for a day.. i know too much about them so it would be easy

Jordan Allen said...

I would LOVE to meet the Duggars because I look up to Mrs.and MR.Duggar. If I were a Duggar for a day I would probably make their lives better somehow. :)

Jordan Allen said...

I haven't met the Duggars but I hope someday I do. I bet if I spent a day with them I would teach them some thing. I look up to the Duggars. I am the same age as James. (I think!)

Does anyone know their speaking schedule? I would love for my daughters to meet any of them. We will be going through their hometown this Spring. I respect their privacy enough to not just drop by. Is there a published list of upcoming speaking engagements? Thank you!
