One of my favorite shows is TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8. I enjoy watching how this couple deals with having a set of 8 year old twins and 4 year old sextuplets. I have been a fan of the show since I saw their first documentary on TLC.

They now have a book for fans of the show. Multiple Blessings describes their story of how they went through fertility treatments to build their family and their faith through the many challenges they encountered.

I admire any mom who can keep her sanity when dealing with the challenges of raising multiple children. I only have one myself, and keeping up with working from home, daily cleaning, laundry, being a mom taxi, helping with homework, catching up with friends, and finding time for my husband is enough to keep me busy. I can't imagine adding onto that the added stress of having 7 more children, a t.v. show, and a book touring schedule.

Kudos for Kate Gosselin! No matter how many negative comments are out there on the web, Kate is a hard working mom who deserves our respect. I highly recommend this book to any mom!

I love Jon and Kate Plus 8 too. It is fascinating. I can't begin to you, I only have one and that is enough for now.

And, I LOVE to read. Karen Kingsbury is my favorite author. I haven't read Take One yet, but can't wait.

Thanks for visiting my blog today! This book looks interesting. I don't know the show as I'm in the UK but I do know what a blessing one baby after fertility treatment is and am sure that they feel incredibly blessed with their family.

Stopping by from the UBP, my papa calls me Shelly so when I saw your name on Mr. Linky I thought I'd drop by.
I love Jon & Kate + 8. I don't care who talks crap about Kate, she's mean sometimes, but ya know what? I'd be a lot worse if I had 8 kids!

Hi there nice to meet you. Hope you are enjoying the party! I too am a fan of Jon & Kate (though I do disagree with some of it) I am a mom of 9 and know a little about raising many children (though no multiples). It is great to stop by for the UBP and hope to see you around my blog too.
