New Photo of Josh and Anna Duggar


Eight years ago, Josh and Anna Duggar became husband and wife during a DIY marriage ceremony at Buford Grove Baptist Church in Hillard, Florida.

In October 2009, they welcomed daughter Mackynzie Duggar, their first of four children. Michael Duggar was born in June 2011, Marcus Duggar in June 2013, and Meredith Duggar in July 2015.

One month after Meredith's arrival, Josh released a public statement, in which he confessed that he had been unfaithful to his beloved wife. He immediately checked himself into a long-term treatment facility, while Anna and the kids moved in with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

Six months later, the Duggars announced that Josh had completed his program and returned to Arkansas to "focus on rebuilding relationships with his family" and continue professional counseling.

Today is Josh and Anna's eight-year wedding anniversary, and it is the 13-month anniversary of Jim Bob and Michelle's announcement that Josh had entered rehab.

Many of you have been eager to see a new photograph of Josh and Anna, and the Duggars have finally released one (posted above). They also shared a short statement: "Happy anniversary, Josh and Anna. We are so thankful for God’s redemptive love in your lives."

Throughout this ordeal, Anna remained faithful to her husband. While she publicly shared the deep grief and betrayal that she felt, she never once talked badly about Josh. She continued to trust in God and be strong for her children, and she waited patiently for her husband to complete his program and return home.

We have been blogging about the Duggars for nearly seven years, and we know the family personally.
Seeing this picture made our day, and we hope it makes yours, too!

Israel Orders His Own Meal

Israel Dillard is less than two weeks away from his 18-month milestone! For those who haven't heard, Jill and Derick Dillard are back in the States for an extended visit. They have been enjoying time with family, as well as preparing for two upcoming weddings.

Yesterday while at a restaurant with "Mima" (Derick's mom, Grandma Cathy Dillard Byrum), the Dillards ordered Israel his own meal for the first time. The little guy looks quite proud of himself.
