Eight children in three years? Impossible! Kate and Jon Gosselin have learned that through God, all things are possible – though sometimes slightly improbable. Just three years after giving birth to twin daughters, Kate and Jon learned she was pregnant again – with sextuplets. Kate candidly chronicles the emotional and exhausting challenges she and Jon faced from the time the babies were conceived through the first two years of their lives.
I have been anxious to read this book for awhile. I love the show Jon and Kate Plus 8 even though I don’t get a chance to watch it very often. Kate is definately forthcoming and honest in her story of having twins and sextuplets in three years time. My eyes were opened to the physical struggles as well as the financial and emotional struggles Kate and Jon shared. Kate has a strong faith in the Lord and that is shown on nearly every page of this book. Without that, I am sure she would have crumbled. I appreciated how all the chapters began with a specific Bible verse that Kate related to. The book was also sprinkled with photos which gave a glimpse into their story as well.
This was an amazing book and should be read by every Christian Mom. It made me realize I don’t have it so bad with 3 kids. Geesh! Jon and Kate had a real test of their faith in God, their faith in their marriage and their strength. I look at them in a whole new light after reading this book. I am jealous of how strongly Kate put her faith and trust in God and just relied on Him to bring them through. I could learn a lot from her! I know I will be referring back to this book again and again during my parenting years! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!
