Dillards Celebrate 2 Years


Two years ago, on a sweltering June day, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard became man and wife during a beautiful ceremony that was attended by 1000 of their closest friends and family members.

After spending one year in Northwest Arkansas, where Derick worked as an accountant for Walmart, the Dillards--along with their infant son, Israel--moved to Central America to pursue full-time missions.

Let's take a trip down memory lane...

Jill and Derick had their first phone conversation in March 2013. Derick was in Nepal doing humanitarian work, and he and Jim Bob Duggar were prayer partners. It was Jim Bob who, upon realizing that Jill and Derick had similar life goals and personalities, set the two up.

Starting in August 2013, Jill and Derick began communicating via text, email, Skype, and telephone. In November, Jim Bob and Jill flew to Nepal for two weeks. After seeking guidance from the Lord and counsel from Jim Bob, Derick asked Jill to enter an official courtship.

Derick returned home to Arkansas in January 2014, upon completing his two-year term in Nepal. At the end of February, he asked Jim Bob's permission to propose and then popped the question to Jill on March 29.

Happy 2-year anniversary, Dillards!
