The Most Wholesome Family on TV
BeliefNet has quite a long interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. “Michelle and Jim Bob, who will be renewing their wedding vows on the TLC special “20 Years, 20 Duggars” on October 8th, recently spoke to Beliefnet Entertainment Editor Dena Ross about possible names for their new baby, how they keep their marriage alive, what they say to their critics, and why they won’t allow their faith edited out of the show.”
