Next Week: "Duggars Down the Aisle"

Can you believe it has been nearly five months since the last new episode of 19 Kids and Counting aired on TLC? The moment you have all been waiting for is almost here: the show returns in one week! Tune in at 9PM EST/8PM CST on Tuesday, August 28th, for "Duggars Down the Aisle":

Though the family is still coping after the loss of baby Jubilee, they pull together to support each other through the hard times. And with 19 kids, there is a lot to keep them busy. In the premiere one-hour episode of 19 Kids and Counting, the whole Duggar clan heads down to Florida for Anna’s sister’s wedding. Will a Duggar girl be next down the aisle?

The excitement doesn’t stop for the Duggars as Jim Bob and Michelle have a special dinner with none other than "Growing Pains" 90’s star, Kirk Cameron. During the season, we watch the older girls begin to be courted while the boys pick up new instruments. The house is certainly noisier than ever now. Jill celebrates her 21st birthday and several Duggars learn how to hunt turkeys. Meanwhile, we check in on oldest son Josh and his growing family. While it’s not quite 19, we see how wife Anna is handling being a mother of two. Will there be any more babies on the way?

(Press Release)

And--as always--visit the blog for a recap of each new episode.

What are you most looking forward to/hoping that TLC will include in upcoming segments of 19 Kids and Counting?

  1. Hey Lily and Ellie!
    I was wondering, I read somewhere on the internet that one of the episodes of the one hour special of the Duggar family that airs on August 28th, will not only be talking about Anna's sister's wedding (we were there! We went out to lunch with the Duggars and they invited us there!) but also it mentioned that it will show the girls being courted. Is it talking about the older Duggar girls? Can you confirm that? Thanks!

  12. Didnt Jill not say like several months ago that none of the girls were being courted? So how can they say we are going to see the beginning of a courting if Jill says theyre not courting??

    I'm thinking that it might not be a courtship. Might just be that the girls are talking about it and preparing for it.

  21. Can someone PLEASE tape it and put it on youtube right away?! Please!

    Thanks!

    I also wonder what the Duggar girls being courted means??

  22. The Duggars' title of that espisode is incorrect. aisles are down the sides of the church. The nave is the 'aisle' down the center

  23. I am so EXCITED!!!! I can't wait for them to be back on tv! They are such a great family and are so encouraging to watch! Thanks Lily and Ellie and you can be sure that i'll be watching Aug. 28th!

  24. Courted = dating. They're dating boys.

    I'd like to see more about Josh and Anna.

    Look at this picture! It says that most of her bridesmaids are sisters, or sisters-in-law- to be, with a smiley face!

  26. What do they mean by "duggar girls begin to be courted"???

  27. I can't wait for the new season to start. Yes I think baby #3 is on the way for Josh and Anna. I saw recent photos of Anna and she looks pregnant. I could be wrong, but I hope not. I wonder who's courting? Can't wait to find out.

  34. Hi Catherine K,
    Please can you tell me why you end all of your post's with "don't quit"? Is that an american trend? No hate just asking

  35. My guess is that cousin Amy will be the next one down the aisle.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can't wait to watch the duggars:) I love them!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The photos of Pricilla's and David's wedding are lovely - but the photo that mentions sisters and soon sister-in-law is because all of her bridesmaids except for Jana were her sisters or David's sisters.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Jana or Jill should be next down the aisle! :D

  41. the Duggar girls begin to be courted?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! SWEET!!!

    Hello! No it's not. The reason I end all my comments with "don't quit" is that at my church we had a youth rally and we had a guest preacher in and he preach on don't quit on the Lord! And I get thinking about what He said and I asked myself WHY quit on the LORD when He never quit's on me!! Now after all my comments. post. emails. texts or cards I send out I always put don't quit or I put don't quit on the Lord! I hope this help. I hope you have a blessed weekend! God bless!
    Don't quit!

  43. I am almost wondering if courtship is part of why the Duggars have been on hiatus for so long. Back when Josh was courting Anna, the show didn't start up until they were practically married and maybe they don't want to air until they are more comfortable that something is going to work out. That makes me more comfortable than the idea that TLC wants to cancel the Duggars, thats something I don't want to see happening.

    1. @tashapork. I agree with you. I've actually been praying almost a year about possibly courting one of the young ladies. No, they don't know me. I wouldn't mind being in TV, but being on TV is not important at all. Even if I was given permission to court, I would refrain from being made public for the sake of their testimony and good family name. Like you said, it would be better to air something they felt more comfortable with thinking it would work out. Whoever the gentleman is/are, I pray they are respectable men and that they will love, honor, and cherish the wife God has for them.

  44. In your interview with Jill in June you said Jill said no one was in a relationship nor was anyone courting. I guess a lot can happen in a couple of months if we believe in the press release

  45. why are you so fascinated with this FAMILY? they make money for doing the shows. i come from a family of 19 too. no one is following me aroung. am also a church going believer too. please explain. mary byler

    ReplyDelete
  46. Mary, just be thankful you are not in their shoes. They made themselves known intentionally and TLC chose to follow them around and pay them to do so. Just keep your life simple and serving God, not making it a display of public attention. It is better that way!! The grass is not always greener on the other side!!!

    i too am wondering. who is being
    courted. and no doubt chaparoned.
    it is a beautiful thing to respect
    yourself and truly honor the marriage arrangment. tune in look
    at michelle and jim bob they are
    a precious couple. they love god
    and then each other. marriage is
    Gods "Jehovahs arrangment". I enjoy
    the Duggars. Good show.

    A lot can happen in several months! A courtship could definitely have been started since they've been on the air!

  51. I don't really have a comment but rather a question i hope someon out there can answer. I know that the Duggars do not believe in the traditional form of dating; they do not believe in "giving away pieces of your heart that rightly belong to the future spouse." I get that and have no problem with it BUT not everyone gets married. Some people don't want to get married and some never find what they are looking for. In that case, would the Duggar child who does not marry stay home all their adult life without any companionship?

    ReplyDelete

    I could try to answer your question. I don't think they would stay at home all their adult life. I think they may come to a point wanting to move out, but on good terms unlike most kids when they move out. I have a sister who is single and moved out when she was about 26. Yes, she would like to get married, but it is not her goal. Her goal is to know the Lord and be close to Him. Although she has moved, she is not far from the family. They are always nearby whenever they need each other.
    Am I about right, Lily and Ellie?

  53. as usual england are a long way behind ,not sure how much ,as usual cannot wait to here the latest ,it is such a inspiration to see and watch something good on television ,and know that there will be such good morals which you dont get much of these days

  54. @AnonymousCliff hangers. I was not dating and then I was and then I married. That is how it works and time marches on it does not stand still.

    ReplyDelete
  55. They probably said nobody was courting because they may have wanted to keep it private and then wait until a bit longer to have it included in the show. Like the eldest Bates son who was engaged...and who now suddenly isn't anymore..maybe Jessa wanted to wait till it was strong enough to announce it.
