5 Interesting Things about Eight Little Faces

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

In case you can't tell, I'm making my way through some books written by television stars. This week, when I picked up Eight Little Faces at the library, I was surprised at how short it is. Less than fifty pages, and full oh photos, the book is a short blurb, a piece of scripture, and some photos. Over and over. And, since it is so short, I'm only doing five thoughts instead of ten.

1. The verse in the Bible that the Duggars associate as the base for the quiverful movement is mentioned early in Kate's book. Psalm 127:3-5. Kate uses it to talk about the great responsibility that God has bestowed upon her when He made her the mother to six additional babies.

2. Kate worries each day when the kids are off to school. Apparently she has no trust in the teacher(s), bus driver, and school personnel.

3. There's a strange photo about halfway through the book that looks as if Kate allowed the children to play with shaving cream at the table. But Kate hates messes...

4. I need more Galatians 6:9 in my life. " Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Kate mentions it because she often wants to surrender from her to-do list, but proceeds on because greater things will come.

5. Kate truly believes that the kids will be best friends now and forever. Um, what? Maybe the fact that they're all so close together in age will help that, but seriously? Who truly has siblings as their best friends at any point in life after age 5??
