Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan: How do you feel about Jana and Jill pursuing midwifery?
 Boy, it’s definitely been exciting. It’s very interesting to me. Jana from the beginning has just loved children. And being the first-born daughter in our family you would think as she becomes an adult she probably has had her fill with children around all the time -- that she’d probably want to do something with adults. But it is so interesting to see that any time she has an opportunity to do something in the community it always has to do with children. She wants to go to the children’s home. She wants to help mamas deliver babies. It’s just all about kids.
Jana and Jill both have been a team together working in midwifery. Jana really wants to be a doula and assist mothers in labor. She really has a good way about her when it comes to crisis situations. She can take the bull by the horns. Around the house, if Mama isn’t here at the moment and somebody has a boo-boo, Jana can fix it.
Jill is interested in the study of midwifery and taking full responsibility at the birth. I think it’s kind of neat to see the two of them work together. They’re gone for days sometimes delivering a baby; when a mother is in labor Jana and Jill are there for the duration. Whether it’s a hospital birth, home birth or a birthing center the team sticks together. So they get a call, and we don’t know when we’ll see them again. It’s been a very rewarding learning experience for the girls. I think Jill will continue her studies to get her accredited midwifery license. And Jana is piling up the hours in her doula training.
I see Jana now and I remember her personality when she was young. I would have never have thought that she would have gone the direction she did. She was very energetic as a little girl, but she’s very reserved and quiet as an adult. But boy, when she jumps into a crisis situation, she’s in charge, and she’s capable. I just encourage all of them. I tell them there’s absolutely nothing that they cannot do if God has called them to do it; he will equip you with what you need and you will be capable. 

Upcoming in June!

The family is growing by one more this coming June as Anna gets ready to have their second son. Michael celebrates his second birthday on June 15th. Anna is celebrating her 25th birthday on June 23th!

Michelle Duggar on Healthy Changes for the Whole Family

Michelle Duggar on Healthy Changes for the Whole Family

CHOW on 05.23.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO

Question from a "19 Kids and Counting" fan: Has Jim Bob’s change to a healthier lifestyle affected mealtime for the rest of the family?
Jim Bob is definitely eating a lot more fresh vegetables, fish and chicken and trying to stay away from fried foods. He’s really eating smaller portions and avoiding the junk food. The family’s food has changed a lot along with Jim Bob’s. My kids really love fresh vegetables and fruit. When we can keep it in the house and get it at a good price, we really stock up. Right now, we have our whole counter and refrigerator full of produce that we were able to get really reasonably priced at the store and at the farmers’ market. We’re trying to get healthier in our choices by eating more fresh stuff. Then if we can’t get fresh, I buy frozen because that’s next to the best in the fruits and veggies category.
Our new garden is another step in the right direction. We have tried to garden before and never managed to have it produce very well, but we are trying again. The planting process has begun: My boys have really been venturing into gardening; Jason leads the pack in that area. These boys are in the dirt having fun and following Jason’s ordersto “dig over here,” and “don’t do that” and “make sure you put that here.”
We’re trying to grow a variety of things, but we have some favorites. If we could, we would have nothing but cucumbers and tomatoes and some squash. We could just eat our weight in cucumbers! I don’t think they ever last long enough around here to turn into pickles (another Duggar favorite).
We started some of our sprouts indoors and the little ones love to watch them grow. We’re sprouting them in water and not dirt, so it’s a little different to watch the process. Those go on our salads, which we pretty much have every day for at least lunch, if not both lunch and dinner. Of course, some of the kids will pick off certain things like the bell peppers and onions. But they’re still there, and they’re offered as part of the meal.
They’re allowed to set them aside if it’s something that bothers their tummy or their tongue. I’m not a real stickler about making them eat – I will give small amounts, like a tablespoon, of new things on their plates. And I tell them what I put there is for them to eat. And then after that, if they don’t like it, then they don’t have to go back for seconds of that. I want their palate to be extended a little bit so they learn some new flavors and textures. I tell them out of graciousness to the cook, to always say thank you for the meal whether they like it or not. You should express gratitude to the one who labored to prepare it. And they’re not supposed to say “I don’t like this.” That is a major no-no. They can instead say, “I don’t think I would like more of this, but thank you.” It’s a whole learning process for the little ones.

Celebrating Three Generations of Mothers in the Duggar Family

Celebrating Three Generations of Mothers in the Duggar Family

FAMILY MATTERS on 05.09.13
19 Kids and CountingBIO
Photo: DCL
Mother’s Day is changing as our family changes and grows. Now, we celebrate with Grandma Duggar, who lives here at the house, and my daughter-in-law Anna. The children often make homemade cards for each of us, which are my favorite things. I have those treasures in my keepsake box, the special little hand-drawn ones. It’s a precious time for the children to share their creations.
Grandma Duggar – Jim-Bob’s mother, Mary – has always been really wonderful and helpful with the kids, even when she and Grandpa were busy with their real estate business. She has been an important spiritual mentor in my life. When I first met her I was applying for a job working for her at a yogurt shop, before I even knew Jim Bob. I was so impressed by her that I just remember thinking this is a lady I’d like to learn from. I had no idea that I would get that privilege from then on! I am just so grateful for Mary in my life because she has been such a godly influence. She and I have such a sweet relationship and she is a great grandma and mother-in-law. Now that Grandpa Duggar has passed away, she spends a lot of time with the children and they really cherish that time. The kids take turns helping Grandma with her business or just spending time together. At Mother’s Day especially, we try to really recognize Grandma Duggar and thank her for being such a great mom and grandmother.
At Mother’s Day, I also recall memories of my own mother. Mom died an early death and didn’t get to spend many days with my children. However, she was with us for our first baby Joshua, and we have special memories of that time together. He was the first grandchild here in Arkansas that she was really able to spend a lot of time with, since all of her other grandchildren were back in Ohio. She was there for his birth and she brought me all the things that I needed when I was recovering after the childbirth. She was there pampering me and loving on the baby and giving me a chance to catch up on my rest so I could heal. Mom was just enjoying every minute of it. In all the pictures I look back on from that time, I see Mom with a big grin on her face.
