Jim Bob Duggar, the patriarch of the reality TV show 19 Kids and Counting, is worth $3.5 million. He is a former politician (once in the Arkansas House of Representatives) who runs a lucrative real estate business.
The Duggars believe in living a debt free life. Jim Bob has been inspired by Jim Sammon’s Financial Freedom Seminar, which teaches people to avoid financial disaster by understanding what the Bible teaches about money, and applying those principles in their lives. Some of the seminar topics include: “Never lend to friends or co-sign for a loan,” and “Learn the principles of praying for money.”
