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 children – ages 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."
