A Duggar Drop-In

Bates Family Uncategorized

A few weeks ago we had opportunity to have a Duggar/Bates Reunion at our home. It was a sentimental occasion because it was the first time the entire Duggar family has been able to_MG_0253 see the finished results of our house renovations they began 2 years ago!

Little Josie Duggar was able to accompany the family after successfully achieving so many milestones in her life! What a joy to see her walking, talking, and playing… To God be all the Glory!

While here, the Duggars gave us a copy of their new book, A Love That Multiplies, which documents the difficult road they traveled when Josie was born at 25 weeks gestational age. As we began to read their story together aloud, our hearts were deeply touched and encouraged by their faith and dependence on the Lord! We cried and laughed and grew as a result of their testimony!

May God give each of us strength and grace to trust Him and to follow Him through our dark valleys, so that we can cling to Him more closely in the good times!



God On The Mountain Lyrics

Verse 1: Life is easy when you’re up on the mountain
And you’ve got peace of mind like you’ve never known.
But then things change and you’re down in the valley.
Don’t lose faith for you’re never alone.

Chorus: For the God on the mountain is still God in the valley.
When things go wrong, He’ll make it right.
And the God of the good times
is still God in the bad times.
The God of the day is still God in the night.

Verse 2: You talk of faith when you’re up on the mountain.
Oh but the talk comes easy when life’s at its best.
But it’s down in the valley of trials and temptation

That’s when faith is really put to the test.
("God On The Mountain" words and music by Tracy G. Dartt)
