Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mothers! Every person has at sometime been benefited by a mother, so we all have something for which we can be thankful! Just before Mother’s day, we took a trip down to Texas!


On the way down, we stopped to fill up the van with fuel and Paul saw a big firetruck. The firemen were so kind and let Paul sit up on the side of the truck and get a picture.

Homeschool Convention with the Duggar Family:DavidlovesPriscilla0507151757a

We were blessed to be able to travel to help the Duggar family as they ministered this past weekend to families attending a Homeschool Convention. We usually get to help with logistics such as organizing the book signing, selling their books as well as other recommended resources and helping interface with the team hosting the function at the facility.


Michelle Duggar took time to share with a packed room of nearly a thousand moms during one of the breakout sessions that the Duggar Family did. She shared from her wealth of experience and from a Biblical perspective about homeschooling, parenting, marriage and more.


Friday Lunch, Paul and Priscilla and a bunch of the Duggar children picked up lunch for David and the team while they were meeting with people

We are often amazed at the personal attention and love shown by each of the Duggars to the many people they meet. They would be the first to say, the love comes from God!

On Saturday evening, the Duggar family gave about thirty minutes of music. People were so excited to be able to hear the Duggar family live.DavidlovesPriscilla0509151943After the music and sharing, Jim Bob and Michelle spoke to the audience. They shared about the journey that God has brought them on to draw them and their family closer to Him.

In the back foyer, David’s brothers and sister set up a few more books so people who wanted to take advantage of the book signing could get one if they did not have one or bring one.DavidlovesPriscilla0509152227a

Many of the families stood in line for over an hour to finally get a chance to greet the Duggar family and get a picture along with their signed book.


David helped keep the line moving by snapping photographs on people’s personal cell phones for them. It was nearly midnight when we had wrapped everything up.

The next morning we packed up the bus with the six or seven carts of luggage from the few days at the Convention. Jennifer and Josie loved to ride on the carts in their unusual style.DavidlovesPriscilla0510151501f

To celebrate Mother’s Day, some dear friends of ours took the whole clan out to a restaurant in McKinney, Texas.

We enjoyed a relaxing time of fellowship celebrating the mother’s that have impacted our lives as well as celebrating the completion of a convention and the work God did in the hearts and lives of many who were there!


While following the Duggar bus back to Northwest, Arkansas we encountered some severe weather. Thankful, we were able to avoid much of it. One portion of the highway had some significant amount of water on it. Check out the video below:

  2. David and Priscilla, You guys are such a blessing. I get so sad when I see hate directed toward you or the Duggars. Reading your blog and watching YouTube videos you have made have been a blessing to me as a woman trying my best for Christ. Priscilla’s words of wisdom on being a godly wife and mother have been a tremendous help to me as well. Thank you and God Bless.

  3. Thank you, Waller family, for sharing your lives with us! It is such a blessing to see you all serving others. Mrs. Waller, you have been such a blessing to me and a great encouragement. Your godly wisdom and tender words of encouragement through YouTube videos have challenged me and uplifted my heart many, many times. I so appreciate your godly example as a gentle, meek, humble, selfless, kind woman of God to so many others. You have encouraged my heart greatly! Praise the Lord!! 🙂

  4. Dear Waller Family,

    I just want to say thank you for always being such a blessing to others. You are such a sweet, Godly young couple and your children are so beautiful. I would like to ask you to please pass on my thoughts and prayers to the Duggars and particularly to Anna & Josh. I know they are going through such a difficult time lately and I want them to know that they are still very loved and that they still have fans (and friends!) who are standing by them through all of this!
