|Michelle Duggar is the wife of Jim Bob, mother of 19 children, and grandmother of two “GranDuggars.” The Duggars, who married in 1984, began their marriage using the birth control pill. After Michelle conceived and miscarried while on the pill, the couple realized that the pill does not keep a woman from conceiving 100 percent of the time and that when it fails to do so, the medicine often forces the woman’s body to miscarry. The Duggars were grieved. From that point on, the couple decided to leave family planning to the Lord, asking Him to show them how to love children like He does and trusting Him to give them the right number of children. The Duggars have appeared on news programs, been featured in magazines and documentaries, and have hosted a reality show on TLC. They have also authored several books including The Duggars: 20 and Counting and A Love that Multiplies: An Up-Close View of How They Make It Work.|
