Hi Denise,

Ro-Tel is the original Texas family recipe of plump, vine-ripened tomatoes blended with select green chilies and flavorful spices.

Fels-Naptha is a brand of bar laundry soap (http://www.felsnaptha.com/). If it is not available at your local grocery store or hardware store, Fels-Naptha can be purchased on Amazon.

We have heard of people using Zote as a substitute for Fels-Naptha.

Happy Washing!

O my gosh it is crazy how much Joy-Anna Duggar reminds me of my mom. I guess she reminds of here because the red hair but wow.

I am encouraged by watching the show, and listening to Michelle's books on tape. I've added the books to my Christian radio listening while driving my kids to school and sports. I tried the laundry soap recipe and have saved a ton! But I'm looking for hints as to what went wrong with my Chicken Etti. It was so dry that I ended up throwing out the left-overs, a rarity here! Keep up the good work!

Why isn't college a priority with so so many children and in this day and age of economic struggle?

Hi duggars, I come from a family of 15. I live in Ireland and love watching your show. I see so many things you do that we would have done as children and it brings back happy memories. The most inspiring for me is how you have passed on your faith to your children. God has used you in such a profound way. I'm sure it's not always easy to have cameras around you but god has a bigger plan for you. I pray a blessing over you and your family. I declare love joy peace happiness protection in the name of Jesus Christ into your lives amen. Have a blessed day and if any of you would like to come to ireland you are welcome to stay at my house xx

I watched your show for a long time and greatly admired your family. However, with Josh and Anna's relocation for his new job disheartened me a bit. I thought, as Christians, you would all understand that we are ALL children of God and deserve to be treated as such. My question is, what would you do if one of the children revealed that they were gay?

I attended a breakfast at Bristol Motor Speedway on the 25th of August. @ brothers named Duggar were the entertainment - any relation to the Duggar's we know and love?

By the age of 10, I have seen and experienced more than your family combined. Your message or mission is good, but very limited. When Jesus walked here amount men he walked with people like me. I am a Christian, saved by grace same as you. But you cast your eyes away from people, you judge if a person is good enough to look at or speak to. To me I find this very sad. The Jesus I know would never do that. If you can not see this, you are to be pitied. You have missed out on so much good work of God. You are not the Judge, our God is. Your sin is the same as anyone's. Sin is sin, all have sinned and came short of the glory of God. I send this because there is more people like me who survived and found my Jesus to show me the way. But I am more of a missionary due to the fact I know brokenness. I work for the same DSS that I was in Foster Care with. I see a broken person across the room. But these are people you would never look at or speak to. Blind, so blind...

Lily and Ellie said...

Hi Anonymous,

Just Josh and Anna and their 3 kids moved to D.C., but the rest of the Duggars went along to help them settle into their new house.

I don't understand when Josh and Anna moved to Washington that the family stayed an extra day with the Bates. They say they lost track of time, how selfish was that of them. Their son had enough stress on him and they should of been there to help.

What happens when one of the kids gets in a courtship with someone of another race?

Anna will have a ton of children. They don't practice any birth control at all. She is young and fertile.

Why are the Dugger girls not allowed to wear their hair short?

Why does Jessa's text messages need to be monitored by her father? She is a grown woman.

Is Jessa going to write her own book on life as a Duggar.

What time of day do the Bates read their Bible as a Family.

betty said...

you may want to LISTEN to why they look away!! the BIBLE also says for a woman not to tempt a man and some women dress in a way that would tempt any man and that is why they look a way!!! sounds like you are the one judging.

Elizabeth Davis said...

I remember an episode where they fix up a house and one of the older boys talks about making it his own. Did he ever do that?

Anna said...

I just wanted to say how encouraging it is to see a famiky strive to do what the Lord has commanded us to do. And to teach your kids to do the same. From courtship, to homeschooling, to modesty, from keeping things out of your home that makes a man stumble. I so want the things of God for my home also. I am a mother of one and had him prematurely. He was 33w 6 days weighing a whomping 5lbs 2oz. He was in NICU for 3 weeks. It was the most difficult thing I've ever had to go through. I recently ordered your first book you all wrote, of course used, trying to be frugal ;) but I was so encouraged by the fact of how you all started out in getting your home buisness going. My husband and I at looking into starting a buisness where my husband can be home and still provide for our family. I also during my first year of marriage was able to seek counseling for keeping a budget and living debt free. So we are trying to live totally debt free. Both our cars we paid cash for. The most encouraging thing about reading your journey as a newly married couple was how much you put God first and were seeking his will for decisions you all made. It encouraged me to do the same. We started by getting rid of our tv, we didn't have cable but we watched movies and netflix (19 kids and counting) too much ( sorry lol) I'm happy to say it has been a great blessing in our home. Now we can focus more on our son, and each other! Keep fighting the good fight. I know it's difficult at times and I hope there are people to encourage you as you encourage others ! :)

Lily & ellie,
who is Jinger Duggar courting? We heard some stuff and was wondering about that. Also, when we mail stuff to the Tontitown P.O. box , do the duggars really get that or is that someone else posing as the duggars? What are the rules for writing to their older daughters?? would appreciate an answer thank you

Hi Anonymous 29,

Jessa's is the only courtship that has been announced, but stay tuned to see what the new season brings.

P.O. Box 1000 Tontitown, AR 72770 is the Duggars' PO box, not someone posting as them. They receive a lot of fan mail and are not able to respond to everyone, but you are welcome to send a letter to any member of the family.

Enjoy your weekend!
Lily and Ellie

As I see it was just one of those things just happen. Perhaps the Duggar family was too tired, or they needed attend to the motor home.

Lily and Ellie,
I so appreciate the ministry of the Dugger family. Are they going to continue with another season?? I am just finishing Season 10....I am looking for more episodes. God bless you!

I was wondering if u knew how long it took the the Duggars to get home from ElSalvador from the time Jill called them with the news about Josie going to the E.R. with seizures? I just finished watching the rerun . Also, did TlC help arrange their speedy trip?

Anonymous said...

Go to RO-TEL.COM and you can see and read about it. Perhaps you can order some. Here in Texas we make the BEST Queso dip. A 1-lb block of Velveeta Cheese and 1 can (not drained) of Rotel. Heat it up and use for dip with corn chips. It is also great to add a 1-lb tube of spicy breakfast sausage, broken up and browned before you add it. Yum. and good luck.

Why can Jessa and Ben hold hands? Josh and Anna did.

What restaurant did Jenna and her boyfriend when on double date while in Hot Springs, Ar?

Anonymous said...

I have a question, what could ever bring you to think that one day you wanted to have a double digit number of kids? As being a 15 year old and only having one other sister they can't even handle two girls. And also, do those kids ever hang out with like friends that aren't from parents you as the parents know?

Anonymous said...

First of all I love watching your show. I understand that you all dress modestly, so why the huge earrings?? Isn't that contradictory to the modest dress code? Just wondering why they are so big?

Anonymous said...

It's not that they aren't allowed. They have chosen not to hold hands at this point. I won't quote directly, but it was said they would revisit the "handholding" issue as the courtship evolves. They apparently discuss and communicate (unlike so many couples, which is what is wrong with our society) on a regular basis, their feelings on all matters and change/adapt as both feel comfortble.

I love the duggars they are a fabulous family and they have inspired me in many ways. They are my favorite show.
