Things I liked:
1. The four characteristics of obedience they teach their children:
(Phonics homeschool program)
is their homeschool program of choice as is Alpha Omega's Switched-On Schoolhouse (SOS)
2. Conferences and Seminars they enjoy
3. Their chart of operational definitions of character qualities.
4. Sam Walton's 10 Rules for Building a Business
5. The chore wall system they use to keep track of all the "jurisdictions"
6. The Duggars have some emotional and behavior goals they have set for their children and for themselves:
I also wanted to mention one of their episodes I saw where they invited over their friends who had a premature baby in the shared room with their premie, Josie. One time the friend's little one had lots of alarms go off and the mom was immediately frantic as she saw a team of doctors and nurses rush in. She thanked Michelle Duggar on the episode because she remembers Michelle in the corner of the room praying outloud when this happened and all she could think at the time was, "Please God, hear her prayer."
I pondered this that night after watching a simple TV show. How often I feel weak and how other people's prayers are so real. I can rely on them when I don't have the words. Does "ditto" work on prayers? Perhaps not in those exact terms but I do believe that I can latch on to another's prayer as though grabbing hold of the end of a balloon string.
