Josh: "I’m just invigorated by it all"


Josh and Anna Duggar and their three children have been in Washington D.C. for nearly two months. How did Josh land his new job at FRC Action (an affiliate of the Family Research Council)?

Josh's passion for politics began 15 years ago when Jim Bob Duggar ran for Arkansas House of Representatives and won. Jim Bob involved his family of 13 in his political career from the start, and Josh has had an interest in politics ever since.

But when Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, approached him about a job opening earlier this year, Josh was hesitant.

“I attended the 2013 March for Life in January – my first time to attend – and I bumped into Tony Perkins,” Josh told the American Family Association Journal.

Josh offered to help find candidates for the position, but Tony Perkins had something else in mind. “What about you?” he asked the 24-year-old.

“No,” Josh answered, “I’m comfortable running my business back home in Arkansas.”

The two men resolved to pray about it, and five months later, Josh and Anna and their three childrenages 3, 2, and newborn were moving to D.C.

Despite his age, Josh has big plans for his political career: “It’s time to say enough is enough,” he said, “to share our thoughts and vision, to work together, to share information and materials, to provide resources for each other, from D.C. to our own hometowns. I’m just invigorated by it all."

If Josh feels connected to this organization/philosophy and passionate about politics; good for him. I think he needs to consider furthering his education in order to achieve his political goals.

Dude seriously!!! They're just giving an update on Josh & Anna!!! It's also easier to say to help the needy than to actually do it, Are YOU helping the poor and needy in your community??? And I'm actually pretty confident that they do.

I think its good Joshua is taking a stand against abortion and doing the job he is doing. We need more people like him to take a stand for the good morals he and his family stand for. We need God in America again.

Remember you need a college degree in todays world in order to achive a position in the political world or in any other executive job. Start working on that and may God help you with all your dreams.

I rarely agree with this post, but I totally disagree with this one. I am an extremely successful single person that if you include all my benefits, I make right at six figures and I don't have a degree. My peers have a degree. I am just smart. Just born that way. Got to where I am with brains minus the degree. Sorry.

You do know god was never in America right? The fonding fathers had no intention for religion to dictate govement decisions hence Seperation of Church and State. They would be ashamed by the state of our country well after they get over cars and airplanes.
