Michelle Duggar on Focus On The Family

I was so encouraged by hearing Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar on Focus On The Family. It gave me some things to really think about. We don't watch the show since we don't have pay TV, though I have read their first book and plan to read the second one too. I just love Michelle's calm spirit and how she talks of relying on the Lord for all her needs. I hear so many parents talk about the show and how it's unbelievable how great the kids are. But in thinking about it, the Duggars are using God's principles that can be followed by all parents.

#1 Love your children enough to discipline them.
#2 Love your children enough to disciple them.
#3 Love your children enough to put God first.
#4 Love your children enough to put your marriage 2nd.
#5 Love your children enough to have daily devotions with them.

This Bible verse comes to mind as I listen to the broadcast.
Deuteronomy 6:5-9
"And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."
