If you haven’t lived in a cave or given up TV as a spiritual fast, you have probably seen at lead one episode of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8 reality show. Some episodes seem very comedic as you watch a day in the life with a family that has eight children under the age of eight. Other episodes are like watching in some weird fascination of daily attempts of these young parents attempting to avoid a train wreck!
This book, however, works much better for me than the reality show. I, too am a mother of twins, and this books provides an interesting, factual account of a family with multiples and shows the foundation of Christ in their life. If you check this book out for nothing more than the last chapter in which Kate and Jon give the six lessons they have learned, your time will have been well spent. Those lessons are gold nuggets worth reading whether you have 16 children or none.
