    4. No. Are you kidding ? I would think Jana would.date.someone a little older. Lawson is several years younger than Jana. Jana is as old as Micheal.

    7. Hi there,

      Right now, we're busy with our other three blogs, but perhaps sometime in the future we will pick our Willis blog back up. We have seen the Willises a few times over the past several months, and they are doing well. :)

    2. Sister Wives is not a good show and should not be blogged about. Completely unbiblical and not good role models!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. Really bc Christians believe in the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and they all had multiple wives.

      Delete
    4. But God intended for one man and ONE woman. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob disobeyed Him.

    5. What Bible verse do u find this in?

      Delete
    6. That was the way it was back then. Even David had multiple wives. God changed that. He is capable to do just as he changed how old we live. We are told that Abraham,Isaac, and Jacob were godly men. I don't think there is a verse in the Bible that says God got after them for having several wives. Although I don't remember Isaac having more than one wife. I agree that marriage is for one man and one women. I agree that Sister Wives is not a good show. we should focus on what God tells us now. Not what He said back then. Should we focus on what George Washington said back in the 1700's? things have changed. Now, according to Christian rule the rule is ONE man and ONE woman. I know NOW the Untied States law says differently, but God's law was made first.

    7. But I thought the Bible says that, "no man can serve two masters?" Doesn't that make a case for one wife :-)

      Delete
    8. I believe God also meant that we cannot serve Satan and Him at the same time. Your're either on God's side or you're not.

  6. I really enjoy this lovely family, I watched it one night and fell in love with this sweet family. Thank God, for the Bates maybe other so call family oriented TV programs will follow.
    Question, are all the children really Mr. and Mrs. Bates natural children?

    1. Thanks for the recent answer to my question. Wow!, how I enjoy the Bates Family and I am watching the camping episode right now. Mr. and Mrs. Bates shows so much love to their children. Will the this be an ongoing T.V. program? How many of their children are ready for marriage, and do MR. and Mrs. Bates feel sad to see their children leave home to begin their own family?

    2. It must be bittersweet for Gil and Kelly to see their children grow up. I think Kelly once said," This is what we raised them for, to have families of their own".

      Delete
    3. Absolutely ! Did you hear what Erin said to her Mom when she gave birth to Carson? Haha. She said and you went through this 19 times !?! And Kelly grinned and I think she shook her head or just grinned. Ha How cute !

  7. Hey guys i luv all of ur blogs. Can u pleaz make a blog for TLCs Sister Wives family?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Sister Wives is not a Godly show. A lot of younger people will probably read the blog and don't need to be influenced in those ways. We need to be a good example for our younger people in what we do and how we do it. Where we turned our attention and how we act.

      Delete
    2. Also, we don't need to be filling our minds with that.

  12. I have been watching the Bates ever since they have been on the air, I love them. I first heard about them when they appeared on The Duggars show. They met at a home schooling convention. I am so sorry for what the Duggars are going through and pray they can survive the pain.

    1. I agree. God will bring them through this and as they said it has brought them closer as a family. So sorry Duggars for the pain you are going through. Anna, you are a godly woman and I am praying for you. I now you are shocked and hurt, and God also knows that.

  13. Hi Lily & Ellie!

    For the last several months, I have not been able to see the Duggar blog. It just keeps acting like it's loading, but then it never does. Do you know what the problem is? I can see the Bates blog fine, but not the Duggars any more. Any suggestions? P.S. You do a great job with the blogs!

    1. Hi there,

      Several other readers have been having that issue. Are you using Internet Explorer? That seems to be the cause. We recommend trying Mozilla or Google Chrome.

      Let us know if these suggestions help. We are blessed to have you as a reader!

  16. I love the Bates. The older children have picked perfect spouses for themselves. Love how the children get along and pair off. Just wish there could be more questions and answer sessions. I know the stories are staged. I read somewhere that they are given story lines. Sad. Wish we could learn more about them with questions asked and them giving answers as they sit on the couch and answer.

  17. I have watched the Bates a lot. Love them all, especially the parents who have done a great job with their children. But, I recently noticed a change in Kelly. I hope you won't mind...but....She is out talking Gil a little too much. And I think.....with all those kids....She spent too much on the first grand- child's birthday. Her younger ones are still little and she has a long way to go before they are grown up. Use that money on your younger ones, even Carlin had commented. And. Please forgive me but she should be dieting and fixing her hair. She is such an attractive woman. She is letting herself go. You shouldn't reach a certain age and neglect yourself. I am very fond of her. Don't get me wrong. I just care.
