The Duggar's Philosophy

I love watching the Duggars.  They have 19 children and they live out their faith.  The children get along so well...It's amazing.  They treat each other with love and respect.  They smile a lot and seem very joyful..The mom and dad love each other.  It is very evident.  They don't have a television and the girls all wear dresses. 

They are not legalistic about this, but just believe it to be best for them.  When asked by Meredith Viera what their secret was to raising good children, the dad responded, "We teach them to love the Lord their God with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength and to love others as they love themselves."  That about sums up a perfect philosophy for raising children.  Keep your eyes on Jesus and love others by serving them and looking out for their needs.

And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself."
Luke 10:27
