James Robert "Jim Bob" Duggar was born on July 18, 1965, in Springdale, Arkansas, to Jimmy Lee "JL" Duggar and Mary Duggar. He was the couple's second child.

Jim Bob often blames this on his father being unable to handle money. In the book Growing Up Duggar, which Jim Bob's daughters wrote, they mention that Jimmy was not a good "spiritual leader of the home", a statement they don't expand on. Not much else is known about Jim Bob's childhood.

Jim Bob is a licensed real estate agent alongside his wife Michelle Duggar and two of his sons, Joseph Duggar and Jeremiah Duggar.
In 1995, the "quiverfull" movement formed. It was a conservative Protestant group that is notably against birth control, looking to produce as many children as possible for God. The group's name comes from Psalm 127: Although it is unknown exactly when the family joined this movement, when they created their first family website in 2005, a link to quiverfull.com was included under the heading "links to articles about the family. The link was to an article posted in 2001, which discussed the family's involvement in the movement.
