We are so glad that you have stopped for a visit! We hope that our site will help you get to know us a little better and that you will be encouraged in your life through what God is doing in ours! We are just normal people who live pretty normal lives, we just have camera crew follow us every once-in-a-while! We look at our opportunities to share on television as a ministry to reach into the hearts of viewers and share through our life the hope that we have found in Jesus Christ!
We were so blessed to be married in September of 2008, in October of 2009 we had our precious daughter Mackynzie Renée. Michael James arrived in June of 2011 and our latest addition, Marcus Anthony, was born in June 2013! As young parents, we learn more each day the importance of seeking God in every area of our lives while also basking in the blessings of seeking Him evidenced in the abundant lives he has given us!
From the time we were young our parents taught us about the things of God and the importance of committing our lives to Him. God requires that we give him everything, and often the area that we want to reserve for ourselves is the very area that he knows we must surrender to Him. When we let God control every area of our lives, He will give us awesome new opportunities to glorify Him!
Being in the public eye, people often disagree with our beliefs or the way we have chosen to live our lives. Our goal in life is to share of the hope that we have in Christ and to use whatever platform He has given us to do so. Our heart is not to judge others but to show them the love of God, even if we have social, political or other differing views. In a world where so many are without hope, it is encouraging to know that there is a God that loves and cares about each one of us! We hope that you will come to the place in life where you find true purpose, trusting Jesus Christ as your Lord!
Life is busy for us right now! Our recent move from Fayetteville, Arkansas to Washington, DC has been a journey! With Mackynzie & Michael taking on the role of big helpers and Marcus full of energy, Anna has her schedule full at home! Josh recently started his new job as Executive Director at FRC Action, where his passion is to encourage Christians to be involved in the process of politics, promoting Faith, Family & Freedom. You can learn more about FRC Action here. The series “19 Kids & Counting!” on TLC continues to keep viewers up to date on Josh & Anna’s family life & various happenings …including life in the big city! You can check the TLC website for more information on the Duggars’ television reality series.
We would like to encourage the young people out there who are considering a relationship or getting married, to wait for God’s best in their life partner. If you have made mistakes, start from where you are and let God be the sole proprietor of your life… including your love life! We all make mistakes, but God looks at our heart and says that when we give him what we have left, he can take it and do great things! God is interested in you & the relationships in your life!
God Bless You!
Josh ♥ Anna, Mackynzie, Michael & Marcus Duggar
