Family is everything, and I just love positive and heart warming entertainment! I am partnering with UP Tv to share the news that one of their most popular family shows, Bringing Up Bates, is returning for it’s 4th season this summer!
What kind of family is used to getting a “new kid every year?” That would be the Bates, an their show is coming back! One of the UP network’s most popular original shows, Bringing Up Bates, is returning for its 4th season on June 2nd. This is a family docu-series that follows the lives of the Bates, a large family with two parents, Gil and Kelly Jo, 19 children, and a bunch of grandchildren.
So many things are happening in the new season, lots of changes for all! As some of the kids are beginning to start their own lives outside of the family, everyone is adjusting. Through the good and the bad, the family’s got new relationships, new careers, and even new babies to welcome to the family, and the Bates’ are experiencing much of what life has to offer a large family like theirs.
What I LOVE about the Bates family is that they have so many positive family mottos that I can stand behind. They have a sense of positivity when dealing with life situations, Gil and Kelly Jo Bates, father and mother of the Bates clan, really encourage their kids to live, love and dream. One of my favorite quotes by Gil – “I don’t know what’s in the future, but I know Who holds the future… and I’m looking forward to what He’s going to deliver.” Such a beautiful message of faith!
Our family motto is “Yes I can“, and this applies to every situation and life scenario we face. My kids are still young and they tend to have a hard time with failure and defeat, and they get down on themselves when they’re sad, hurt and discouraged. This show serves as a great example to my kids that stuff happens to everyone in a family – good, bad, and ugly – and making the best of it is all we can do. I am encouraged by the way this family operates, they have lots of fun and stay positive in the process – no matter what life throws at them!
Tune into UP this Thursday, June 2nd and watch Bringing Up Bates, you can’t miss the season 4 premiere! I could not imagine having 19 children – let alone 5, so my family will be watching as the Bates family kicks off the summer with some big family changes, and they also have to overcome Gil’s medical procedure, which makes everyone sit back and think about it all. Also, there’s a fun Twitter chat on Friday, June 2 at 9pm EST, follow and tweet along with the #BringingUpBates hashtag during the show and win some awesome prizes! More info here.
Don’t miss Bringing Up Bates season 4 premiere, 6/2 at 9pm on UP TV!
