What do you think of the Duggars & the Bates? I read the Duggar family blog as well as the Bates family blog. I have never watched either on t.v. I do have both the Duggar books. I often wish my life was like theirs. I also wish I would have had their life growing up. I really admire them both for their faith. Both of the families values are top notch. The Bates family are my favorite of the 2. They seem so down to earth & more involved as parents.

I wish my life was even more rigid than what it currently is because it makes life so much easier to deal with. Honestly, I thrive on rigidness. A fire & brimstone type church is very appealing to me. I love the f & b type sermons we sometimes get at church. I wish we got more! I was not raised this way but often look back now & wish I had been. Sometimes I need more rigidness because I need the discipline.

HEAR, HEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! I agree. It's funny because so many look down upon them as if those "poor children" but if you listen to them, they are happier than any kids I know!!!! The teens seem to be fulfilled and grounded and I often wish tht for my family. I want to lead a lie with morals like that an to be unified with my family. Right now it is not possible.

Personally, I LOVE THEM! When people say "the world is overpopulated, how dare they." honestly..it makes me sick and sad!! So, 19 more people in the world is really going to cause a problem? Moreso, 19 more FABULOUS, GODLOVING, DECENT HUMAN BEINGS ARE A PROBLEM? Not a good arguement in my opinion. In fact, I think many often think "wow, I could never do that." I praise them and admire their faith and rust in GOD!!! I would love to be friends with them!!
