Jill and Derick Celebrate 1 Year

We're back! Thanks for sticking with us as we took a week-and-a-half break for Ellie's wedding, and thank you for your well wishes and prayers. The wedding could not have gone any better.

On their one-year anniversary (June 21, 2015), Jill and Derick Dillard had pictures taken by Elizabeth Zellon, who also photographed their wedding last year. Scroll down to see previews.

Have you heard the Dillards' big announcement? They are moving overseas! Read our recent post for details.

'Thank You, Michelle!'

We hope you have enjoyed hearing about how the Duggars have impacted our readers. Ellie's wedding week is almost over, and then we will resume posting regular Duggar updates.

This story is from Sally W:

Listening to the advice that Michelle would give to her daughters if they developed an eating disorder gave me exactly what I needed to hear to end my relapse into compulsive overeating. She advised finding a loving, spiritual person to lovingly hold them accountable for their behavior daily.  I did just that and was able to end a very painful bout of self destructive eating with the help of others and God.  I have tried for years to stop this debilitating habit, and I want to thank her for being so honest and open. Without her advice, I might still be spiraling downward to an early death. Thank you, Michelle! I hope you are back on the air soon.

Dillards' Big Announcement

Now that Ellie is married to her Mr. Handsome, we are taking a break from wedding cleanup/recovery to bring you a Duggar update.

Jill and Derick Dillard are headed overseas. The Dillards have had a mission-focused marriage since they tied the knot in June 2014, and they have a strong desire to serve the Lord in a foreign country. Earlier this year, the opportunity arose from them to begin making plans to pursue that dream. Derick recently left his job as a tax accountant at Walmart, and he and Jill are headed overseas with three-month-old Israel Dillard in July. At this time, the Dillards have chosen not to reveal where they will be serving.

'The Duggars Are Wonderful'

Our family is in wedding mode this week, so we are unable to post live updates. We have been sharing stories of how the Duggars have impacted our readers. This one comes from the Garner family:

The Duggers have greatly impacted our family. They have and continue to be a light in this dark world. My children--18 months, 4 years old, 6 years old, and 11 years old--have looked forward to our time together watching them. We have learned wonderful information on how better to raise our children in a Christian home. While we are not perfect, as well as the Duggers never claimed to be perfect, we are so grateful for the Grace of God who covers our lives! The Duggers are wonderful!
