The 9.8 million viewers of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus Eight recognize Kate Gosselin as the practical mom of eight who has come into their homes for over 100 episodes of her family’s hit reality show. In this I Just Want You to Know unabridged audio download, Kate reveals a grateful and faith-filled mother who only wants the best for her children and is willing to sacrifice to make that happen. The story covers the three years her family lived in their Elizabethtown home, a period Kate considers one of the happiest of her life. In it she discusses the individuality of eight kids (all under the age of six) transitioning from the chaos of caring for infants to the structured days of a home filled with budding preschoolers, as well as her thoughts on communication, everyday miracles, and providing a safe home. During that time, Kate discusses her family’s unique challenges from daily schedules to traveling, her need for control to learning how to be flexible, the individuality of all eight kids, how God provided every day, and her faith that held it all together.

    " Ok, I admit I liked the show, it was kinda like not being able to not look at a wreck. It was fascinating to see how in the world to handle and organize all the children. Yes, she was hard, but she had to be when the dad wanted to be a kid too. Had no expectations of the book, just another insight how she mothered and loved kids. She's making the best of what happened, which is more than can be said for honor octomom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna Mojica | 2/14/2014

    " Got this at the Dollar Tree. I thought it would more interesting. It was written for her kids. The power of love through motherhood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 1/20/2014

    " I didn't ever see an episode of Jon and Kate; I only know this lady from an Oprah show I saw. It's clear she loves her kids TONS. I get that she was impatient and whatnot but I am actually impressed she's sane despite all those kids :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 1/18/2014

    " Much better than I thought it'd be! It was a really quick read, too...loved it. Learned a lot of things beyond the basics of the show (and their first book which was pretty redundant of everything they told us through the years on the show) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danni | 1/16/2014

    " What an amazing woman. Eight little kids all at the same time and single. I would throw a fit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 1/10/2014

    " Although the last one was only okay, I still couldn't stop myself from picking up this current title/sequel to Multiple Blessings. I liked it a lot more than the last one...maybe because it was very genuine and she seemed really relatable. She explains a lot of the choices she has made and has been criticized for. I also love reading about how she handled so many kids. I skipped over the letters she wrote to each kid. A very quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 12/29/2013

    " Some parts had me laughing so hard, tears were streaming down my face lol "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 12/27/2013

    " If I could give it a 2+, I would. This was interesting...I wondered how someone would manage a family of 10! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy | 12/19/2013

    " Quick read. Kate Gosselin loves her children, and you can tell just by reading this book that she does EVERYTHING for them. The fluidity of this book is much better than the past books. Glad to see she's doing well without Jon in the picture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/13/2013

    " Kate Gosselin never ceases to inspire me. Yea, she looks mean, rude, and self centered but you have to read this books in order to understand she truly does everything she does for her kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 11/6/2013

    " I love the show and now I feel like I understand Kate a little more, too. Enjoyed her letters to her children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 3/10/2013

    " My favorite parts of the book were the letters she wrote to each child and made them individual to each child's personality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 12/13/2012

    " Excellent follow-up to "Multiple Blessings." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 7/7/2012

    " I love the Gosselins, and was super excited to read this book. I really enjoyed it. I wished there were a few more ancedotes about the kids in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 5/10/2012

    " Cute book! If you are a fan of the Gosselin children it is a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allyson | 4/3/2012

    " I like how she says what all moms feel: somedays I'm not as good as I should be, but I love my kids, and I want to be the best mom I can be for them. In spite of everything...I like her, and I feel bad for her and her family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valeriep | 1/12/2012

    " okay book, has some great quotes, and is cute, but not much to learn from it. Though I do want to try some of the recipes. anyone made them yet?? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 11/3/2011

    " This book gave more insight about the family. I loved the letters she wrote to each child individually. They will be of great sentimental value when the children grow up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle | 8/31/2011

    " The letters to her kids got a little repetitive, but the book was sweet and overall uplifting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 8/5/2011

    " I loved her first book and read it in one day. This book was no different. It is an easy read and very entertaining. It makes you sad to know that their marriage fell apart. She writes about so many happy times. I hope she keeps writing books! I think she is a great author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 5/31/2011

    " This book is a quick read, but not overly interesting mostly about normal everyday things. You do get to know Kate a little better then you have been able to on her show and in the other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 3/21/2011

    " A sweet Mama read. I am very interested in this precious family and where things have gone so wrong for them. It is such a shame. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette | 2/28/2011

    " Enjoyed hearing about life raising multiples. It could never be easy.

    Kate's letters to each of her children will be treasured by them someday.

    Kate's faith and wanting to individualize each child was a point she made many times as reiterating it's importance to her. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Candy | 2/12/2011

    " I have to admit that keeping up with the Gosselins is a guilty pleasure of mine. Enjoyed multiple blessings more though I did enjoy the letters she wrote to her kids. I thought the book would be all letters to her kids but they are simply 2-3 page letters sprinkled around the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peggy | 2/12/2011

    " It's a little too saccharine and she really played up the religious angle

    But I really can't even begin to imagine raising that many children... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 12/8/2010

    " This book gave more insight about the family. I loved the letters she wrote to each child individually. They will be of great sentimental value when the children grow up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 10/23/2010

    " I love the show and now I feel like I understand Kate a little more, too. Enjoyed her letters to her children. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aspasia | 10/7/2010

    " Kate Gosselin writes a heartefelt letter to each of her 8 children. Even though she and Jon have acted strangely in the last year, you do have to admire her love for her kids and her work ethic. Also, includes some "behind the scenes" stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 9/22/2010

    " As a formerly big fan of Jon and Kate plus 8, I picked this up to see what Kate had to say. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robin | 8/24/2010

    " To anyone who has followed the sage from the start, this is just one more piece of the puzzle. There are 8 sweet letters that Kate wrote to each child. People are interested in her life, so why not try to make some money. Would you like to send 8 kids to college at pretty much the same time? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 8/13/2010

    " Ok, don't hate on me for reading this. Can I say I like the show and not loose credibility with my family? I'm a TLC junkie and this piqued my curiosity in the library. Jason made fun of me for reading it already. It was not bad and seemed to be written by her alone. I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 7/17/2010

    " love her views and her realtionship with her kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allyson | 6/27/2010

    " I like how she says what all moms feel: somedays I'm not as good as I should be, but I love my kids, and I want to be the best mom I can be for them. In spite of everything...I like her, and I feel bad for her and her family. "
