| Summary

In this delightful and very personal audiobook, the four oldest Duggar girls share their hearts and their core beliefs, explaining that it’s all about relationships! • Relationship with self: The girls share their own personal journeys to self-acceptance and navigating the difficult stage of adolescence. • Relationship with parents: You’ll find revelations about how Jim Bob and Michelle keep the lines of communication open with their children. • Relationships with siblings: Here, you’ll get a peek into the Buddy system, how the siblings handle conflict, and how the loss of little Jubilee (their sister) affected their relationships with each other. • Relationships with friends: You’ll find principles on how the Duggar kids deal with peer pressure and how they interact with friends outside their family. • Relationships with boys: You’ll learn the Duggar view of dating and courtship, and these four sisters will address the often-asked question of when one of them will get married. • Relationship with God: And woven throughout the audiobook, the girls talk about their most important relationship of all—their relationship with God and their own personal faith and beliefs. This candid look into what Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger believe and why they believe it will give you practical insights into your own life and will inspire you to evaluate principles that will work for you.

19 Kids and Counting

19 Kids and Counting (formerly 17 Kids and Counting and 18 Kids and Counting) is an American reality television show that aired on the cable channel TLC for seven years until its cancellation in 2015. The show features the Duggar family: parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children—9 girls and 10 boys, all of whose names begin with the letter "J". During the life of the show, three children were born, three children were married, and four grandchildren were born.

The show focuses on the life of the Duggar family, who are devout Baptists, and frequently discusses values of purity, modesty, and faith in God. The Duggars avoid birth control saying they have decided to allow God to determine the number of children they have. All of the children are homeschooled, and access to entertainment such as movies and television is limited. They practice chaperoned courtship, in which a couple acquaints itself only in a group setting. The values presented on the show have been associated with the Quiverfull movement, which has been described as promoting strict family conformity, male hierarchies, and subservient roles for women. The Duggars have stated they are not associated with the Quiverfull movement.

The series began on September 29, 2008 and concluded on May 19, 2015. The show was TLC's most popular, averaging 2.3 million viewers per new episode in Season 10, and scoring in the Nielsen "Cable Top 25".

On May 22, 2015, TLC suspended the series when the Duggars' eldest son Josh publicly apologized for having "acted inexcusably" following reports that he molested five girls, including some of his sisters, by fondling them. These events occurred in 2002 and 2003, when he was 14 to 15 years of age, and prior to the beginning of the show. On July 16, 2015, TLC (The Learning Channel) announced that the show was officially canceled and would not resume production. A spin-off show, Counting On, aired in December 2015 and the fourth season premiered June 12, 2017.
