Kate and Jon Gosselin have learned that, through God, all things are possible---though sometimes slightly improbable.
Just three years after giving birth to twin daughters, Kate and Jon learned they were pregnant again---with sextuplets. In Multiple Blessings, Kate candidly chronicles the emotional and exhausting challenges she and...more
The book is just short of 200 pages, and about 180 of those pages mention god at least once. Each chapter has a bible quote on the top of the page. The entire book seems to be about Kate's relationship with god, often asking "why me?" and then coming up with some reason or bible quote to explain how god is showing her strength, blah, blah, blah.
I knew before reading this book that it was ...more

She very well knows that she can sometimes get in trouble with her mouth and I think it's awesome that she is so honest about their life and their situation. I've always wanted twins and admired ...more
Ok, I went into this with as open a mind as I could. The writing and the story itself was decent. It went quickly and kept my attention.
On a personal note though, it sort of ticked me off. The Gosselins lived right around the corner from me up until they basically moved during the night without telling one a few months ago. I didn't think the narration made Kate any more likeable. The show makes her come across as a bit hard, and readin ...more
I watched a marathon of their shows so I could learn what the fuss was about.
Even in this book Kate comes across as a bit ungrateful despite her insistence that she was and is very grateful for everything.
She talks about a home make over and how she felt the TV really did a horrible job. Even if I felt that way I probably wouldn't put ...more
The book was an extremely easy read (I got through it in an hour and a half), but contained virtually no information that hasn't been covered in the television special or the show. This fact made the book a tiny bit boring, in my opinion. It was easy to get through, because of the flow of the writing, but it was very much like reading a well- ...more
Fast forward 3 years. I haven't watched the trainwreck of a show in at least couple of years. I can't pretend to know what it's like to raise multiples, and know I'd have a hard ti ...more
I liked it. Kate is a strong, straight-forward person. She's honest and frank about their life. The book begins with their marriage and quickly m ...more
Most of what is talked about in this book I've already known, because I watch the show. I did find it weird that Kate constantly talked about religion in the book, yet that is never brought up on the tv show. Same goes for the constant mention of her family. I had to push myself to finish t ...more
From reading I could tell Kate definitely depended on prayer and faith to get through pregnancy, child birth, child rearing and the "stuff" thrown at her along the way.
Strikes me odd how the tv show contained no real prayer or church activities, yet the book is full of verses.
