Michelle Duggar recieved a special birthday treat on Sunday when her family shared a series of videos showing various Duggar children wishing the family’s matriarch a happy day.

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, who is expecting her first child with husband Ben Seewald, starred in one message where she said she hoped to implement her mom’s parenting skills while raising her unborn child.

“As Ben and I are looking forward to being parents in the next couple months I just think that are so many things that I learned from you that I’m really looking froward to implementing in my own home,” Jessa said.

Two points in particular include Michelle’s patience (“You’re very patient with the kids and even whenever they’re acting up you’re very calm in the way you handle it.”) and her “love for Jesus.”

“Any time things are going crazy you’re always pointing us to Jesus and I know that’s your rock in tough times,” Jessa said.

In another video, Josiah Duggar thanks his mom for her support.

“[Thanks for] believing me and giving me a safe space to share with you,” the 18-year-old said. “I really do look up to you.”

In another video Jana Duggar, Michelle and husband Jim Bob Duggar’s eldest daughter, says she “hopes to be like” her mom some day.

Jill (Duggar) Seewald, who is back in the United States with her family for a short break from their mission work in El Salvador, did not appear in the series. Josh Duggar, Michelle’s eldest child and subject of several scandals this year, also did not appear in the series as he is currently seeking treatment in a faith-based rehab center.

Despite their recent scandals and the cancellation of their hit TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting, the Duggars put on happy faces when they stepped out last weekend to attend the wedding of Jim Bob’s niece, Amy Duggar.
