  1. Uhh, Jessa has some 'splainin' to do. Has she left the orthodox Christian movement? She appears to be a little "racy" even for us mainstreamers... Not saying that she looks inappropriate, she doesn't, but definitely out of character for this family. I hope she IS moving on... Jill apparently also looks a little "close" to her fiancé, not by our standards, but by her parents'. Hopefully we'll get an update.. the photos are nice though!

  2. I really love Jessa's new haircut with sidebangs it appears. Derick and Jill look so in love and so happy-good for them :) I must say though, Derick looks so much like the Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers..not a bad thing though ;) God bless!

      I forced my 19 year old son to watch and he said the same thing about the an look alike. Crazy in love Inland Derelict are. And old enough. Ben at 18 maybe puppy love. I can't figure those two out. I 100% see it will Jill and Derrick

  3. Jill and Derick look like they are really excited about getting married! I cant wait to watch the episode of Jill going to meet Derick for the first time in Nepal! I am excited to see what God has in store for Ben and Jessa! :) They are such happy couples!

  6. Man...yes this is completely superficial, but Jessa is absolutely stunning! She's been grooming herself real well lately, and seems to be looking prettier and prettier each day. And Jill and Derick are so delightfully sweet, and I absolutely love their story on how God brought them together. I am so excited for their upcoming marriage, and certainly for the coming episode!

  8. I think Jesus is so beautiful but she seems to be really packing on the makeup Thats normal for someone her age I guess , it just ddded a caught me off guard . The duggars seem to notice and say her head is up in the clouds with her being in a relationship I personally feel she is rushing into something that she isn't ready for when the head up in the clouds feeling wears off thats when she should consider marriage because everything's great in the beginning especially with all of the shaperons it seems how would they truly be themselves with constant cameras and family members surrounding their every move at all times . I feel all the girls not rush into anything and should consider marriage after at least two years of knowing the guy.

  10. Isn't it odd that Derick and Jill are grinning ear to ear and Ben and Jessa just have a smirk?

  12. Poor Jessa and Ben! I wonder if they read these comments ever--I guess you have to get used to people just being judgmental of you when you are a celebrity type, but I think it still must be hard to constantly compare them with Jill and Derrick. Jill and Derrick are both older and I am sure that their family all realizes that they are a little more mature than them. That is probably why they are already engaged and Jessa and Ben are taking things slower. And remember, courtship does NOT always mean marriage--perhaps they will find it is not right for them. All I know is I made some silly mistakes with boys before I found my wonderful husband--give the girl a break--she found a cute guy who seems like a good Christian and now they are dating to see if it will work out--I am sure they are good people and have good hearts and intentions. The important thing to remember is that they are PEOPLE with feelings!

  13. Hey everyone, this a Duggar FAN page. If you don't have anything nice to say, get off this site. I personally think they are beautiful so don't say mean things. I highly doubt you would say that in person to the Duggars. Just please filter your comments please.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Has anyone else noticed that Jessa appears to be in a sleeveless top?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think some of these comments are too critical. They are young people in love let them enjoy it. They are very grounded in their faith and they have people all around holding them accountable. Since when is wearing makeup a sin these girls are still very modest. Dugger girls you are doing
    great! I let my 15 year old watch your show and we love your example. We are Baptist homeschoolers not much of anything to watch on TV that is appropriate so we thank you!!

    1. There is nothing wrong with all of us being shocked at her wearing a ton of makeup we are talking about the duggars here even mainstream people think its alot. They are a modest family and no dought everyone on the post loves the duggars . Her makeup packed on is out of character for that family and noticeably so . I dont think michelle loves her makeup being packed on either

      Delete
  16. @AnonymousI think Jessa is just gettin better with her craft at putting on more makeup,its a very professional job,well done, now she can be the resident makeup girl in the family and do her sisters for them too,and maybe even Michelle's.Bless that young ladies talent with hair and makeup,you go girl. :-)

  17. Don't think it's anyones business how much make up someone wears. God looks at the heart so why major on the minors? a lovely family through and through!

    ReplyDelete
  18. We all need to remember that Derick and Jill are very touchy-feely but Jessa is not. Everybody has their engagement/courtship rules set so the space between them is determined by them. I think that the quality of the photo makes Jessa look like she has lots of make-up. Jessa, Jill, and all the Duggars are still grounded in their strong faith. Their styles of skirts may change but their hearts are still pointed towards the Lord. How about critics stop pointing out their flaws and check out the flaws in the lives of themselves. Judge not lest ye be judged.

  19. I love to see Jill and Derek together. When are you moving these to Photos? I can't find them as soon as you upload more.

  20. I'm surprised that the older girls wear so much makeup.

  21. Jessa showing her shoulders?

  22. I love all of you Duggers! such a blessing to watch you all grow up. things are getting exciting for you, girls you are so blessed to have a dad like Jim Bob making sure you have a guardian looking out for your affairs of the future! God bless all of you.

  23. I am sure if we look back at Josh and Anna there are photos or moments captured on screen where they were as close as Jill and Derick :)

  25. It's what is in our heart that matters, and makeup will not restrict one from eternity. They are a loving, wholesome, God fearing family.. God Bless them all!

  26. I am sooo glad that these kids don't take peoples critical remarks to heart and they just live there own lives how they see fit. There is no pleasing everyone, so they just live,love, learn and praise how they want.Infact, I bet they don't even see the horrible remarks anyways, and really, who would want to, not me, would you.? Nope, it absolutely serves no purpose.Live and let live, love and be loved,praise and be praised.Godbless you all, and have a wonderful night! ;-)

  29. I have enjoyed following this family for years. I am blessed to have been raised in a Christian family and so appreciate being able to watch a family on TV that I actually feel that I have something in common with! I am thrilled for Jill! Derick seems like an amazing match for her. So mature, educated, Godly character, all around ready for marriage! Jill too, such a sweetheart! So ready to take this step. Ben and Jessa on the other hand worry me a bit. They are far too young for marriage. Ben has a lot of growing up to do. Marriage is serious business. I certainly hope that they take it slow. Give it a few more years, why the big rush to the altar?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Not sure how a darker shade of red lip colour and eyeshadow = too much makeup. I agree with a few who have already commented -- as long as Jessa (or anyone else) has her heart anchored in Christ, there's little reason for us - third-party observers from afar - to fuss over the superficial. It sounds almost legalistic to suggest that applying more makeup means that a girl is definitely conforming to or led astray by the world...

    Crucial note: You can be the most modestly dressed and makeup-free person, but still have a heart enslaved to the world that is following the prince of the air (i.e. the devil).

    ReplyDelete
  31. I don't see the girls as falling into the world or away from faith. I see them as not being little girls anymore. They would look silly if they dressed as a 10 y/o now. They are doing an awesome job. Those boys are lucky finding girls who are godly and beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Beautiful couples. Lets not steal their joy by critiquing them. Kids have enough pressures on them these days. They are growing and figuring out things just as everyone of us have done in our youth. Give them room to breath amd enjoy this time.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Jessa is fine. She just has a little bit different shade of lipstick than she usually wears. Her blue nails are a light color and are fine. Really people. I am a 64-year-old Christian grandmother and I think she is fine and beautiful. Ben is a doll. Every couple in the world has different personalities and we wouldn't want them all to be the same. We shouldn't compare too much. I wish them so much love and happiness.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Jessa is all grown up and may be following her own heart. Perhaps she has a leaning towards more of a dispensational belief (such as the Grace movement) that teaches more from the Pauline epistles than Deuteronomy. God entrusted us to raise two young men one is working on a second master's degree in a seminary and working at the same, the other is a music teacher, and He was miracoulously able to use me despite bare arms and makeup. The love you display for Him and the belief that "I must decrease so He may increase" as John the Baptist said is much more important than obsessing about the length of a dress, or the amount of arm that is showing. When you look at Jessa do you see Christ? When I look at you do I see Christ? When you look at me who do you see?

    ReplyDelete
  35. These comments! Please, people! Jessa is not going overboard on makeup. The quality of the photo may seem like she is, but she is naturally beautiful. (As are all of the Duggar girls!) Both couples are very obviously in love, so why can't we simply just be happy for both.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ok guys! She isn't wearing a tank top it's a sleeved shirt just the way she is leaning it is bunching up! But I bet she will be the one that will change a little bit... But another commenter was correct that Derick and Jill are very touchy-feely but Jessa would rather not go that route at this point. I hope their relationship is still strong and the family isn't forcing them to stay in the courtship.! Maybe they are the kind of people that rather just take it slow and steady and really see if they are "made for each other". Really I think only courting for like 4-5 months and already getting engaged is a little too fast! What if you commit to the commitments of marriage and only have known each other a year and then, "whoops! This ain't gonna work!" I am sure the Duggar's wouldn't approve of a divorce. I think Ben and Jessa are just young and need some more time. If they choose to marry and he's still not even 20, who cares? I think he could handle a family! He seems pretty on top of things for 19.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I believe Jessa has a cap sleeve shirt on that slide up when she raised her arm to take the picture. Also, she is making a face for the picture, purposely not smiling, which Ben is probably doing the same thing.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Who is Jonathon Steiger is their another courtship in the works? And what's going on with john David and Joseph why no girls for them?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Both young ladies look amazing. I love the looks of both.

    ReplyDelete
  40. For your information Jessa is not showing her shoulders! It just looks like that in the picture because when she leaned over to take the picture her sleeves (by mistake) went up a little. HAVE SOME COMMON SINCE PEOPLE AND STOP JUDGING!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sorry, but I agree.... way too much make-up, Jessa! Still love you all, but the modesty, sweetness, gentleness, and most of all, love for the Lord, is what attracted me to this family in the first place. Please don't change too much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Can everyone stop with all the comments about the dugger girls and the amount of makeup they wear. The girls are adults. Has everyone forgot that

    ReplyDelete
  43. "It was their modesty, sweetness, gentleness and most of all, love for the Lord, that attracted me to this family in the first place...."

    To be fair, I should have noted that three out of four of those attributes are still in place, and should have said, please don't change the modesty aspect too much! OK, you are still modest, and while I can understand why you modernized a bit (to become more mainstream) please don't change too much! :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Such cute pics!!!!! LOVE THEM!!!!!!! Like anonymous 23 said above me....JUDGE NOT LEST YE BE JUDGED!!!!!! God looks on the heart. NOT ON THE OUTSIDE!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Anonymous 10, you said Jesus not Jessa just to let you know : )

    ReplyDelete
  46. Both couples look very happy to me :) Have Jill and Derick decided where they will be living after they are married?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Give Jessa a brake and quit being so judgmental. She is a very beautiful girl and who cares what she is wearing, how her hair is fixed or the amount of makeup she has on. I am very happy for both couples. Such a wonderful family to watch.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I do not mean to be judgmental at all, but Jessa is wearing a LOT of makeup. It's sad because she looked so pretty before. It was naturally pretty, not all fake. They really stood out to me with their non-celebrity styles and attitudes but this kinda shocked me. It makes me sad.

    1. You meant exactly to be judgemental! It's not your life or your skin! I think there is a little rule about keeping things to yourself if you don't agree. You weren't asked to weigh in with your opinions on how these girls live.

  49. Nice photo of Derick and Jill and the photo of Ben and Jessa is nice too. Ben looks tired or something, Justin is cute, at least Jessa appears amused.

  51. They are close to get them in the picture which takes 5 seconds. He is on the phone and one of her many chaperones in an already crowded place is practically standing on their heads. Either they are not dressed nicely enough or they are too dressed up. If this was taken during a filming they may have asked for more makeup so they read properly and the lighting was just making it stand out a bit. They are already focused much on appearance since dad prefers and they go along with a long hair style. If they are going to sit in front of the mirror for so long a time might as well wear lipstick.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Leave Jessa alone. So what If she wears make up and new hairdo, she wants to look pretty and it is very natural. Do u want to look ugly? Or do u want them to look ugly enough just to make you happy. Cmmon people. Personally for me there is no rush to get married. everybody praises Jill and Derek, but for me personally, she is rushing into marriage, I hope she will not be disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ben is a very pure innocent kind chaste soul, and Jessa is lucky to have found him, and Jessa is a very strong, religious, devout, chaste girl and Ben is lucky to have found her. If anyone should be getting the third degree from Jim Bob, it should be Derick, who is older and was raised differently than the Duggars. But for some reason, Ben has raised the ire of Jim Bob, who misuses chaperoning as a wedge to put distance between the courting couple, instead of the correct way, which is for the chaperone to be a modest unobtrusive quiet presence, often at a distance. The courting couple are supposed to try to forge a close bond without physical contact, for purpose of marriage. Not for purpose of chaperones having fun and amusement at the expense of Ben. Jessa looks beautiful in her sweet makeup, and deserves no criticism either. Ben's parents are very religious people and should step in to assure Ben is not mistreated and teased by Jim Bob, and that he has a fair opportunity for true courtship with Jessa.

  54. guys,
    Jessa is just wearing more makeup etc because she is smitten with Ben - and it is quite a normal way for a young girl to react when she is "taken" by her man -extra especially for your first love. Remember when you where young or when your daughter or son met some one they liked - you or they spent more time in the bathroom more time getting ready and dressed up more when they had company that they liked of the opposite sex.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Lilly and Ellie, If it is true that Jessa is engaged can you announce it ASAP? Also with new pictures of the lovely couple! I just wish that people would stop being so judgemental because the only reason they are like that is because the are jealous! Thank you and have a blessed week! Ps. Thank you soooooo much for giving time to make this blog and update us! I check your blog more than once daily! God bless you very much!

  56. Come now ya'll, it's now her choice how much makeup to wear and in my mind it's not "WAYYY to much" as ya'll have said. Come on, it's her face not YOURS!

    ReplyDelete
  57. HAVE YOU EVERY THOUGHT THAT IT MAY BE THE FILTER ON THE PICTURE THAT MAKES JESSA LOOK A LITTLE MORE MADE UP?

    ReplyDelete
  58. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN WEAR MAKE UP AND NOT BE WORLDLY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. I have followed this family of faith since they were just a small little bunch, 13 kids or so. Though their beliefs and courtship rules are confusing to me, it's very sweet these young girls look as happy as they are. Jill and Derrick are wonderfully close buy obviously being monitored. They just barely got to hold hands, I can't really imagine it. How exciting it must be.
    Jessa is radiating the same beauty her mother taught her to have within herself. Who cares if she's wearing make up or a sleeveless top? Does that change the quality of her heart in the eyes of her Lord? Probably not. The assumptions and assault on these young women for their personal choices regarding clothing and make up is pathetic and ungodly. No one else can pass judgment on these women except the Lord himself, and shame on all of you for acting in that place.

    ReplyDelete
  60. We should also remember Jill is engaged, while Jessa is not. The point that Jill is more touchy feely is good too.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love that these young people have been so self controlled and have honored themselves and each other by remaining pure until marriage. I have great respect for this entire family and I wish them all happiness, good health, and all the blessings their hearts and homes can hold. This world would be a much better place if all parents raised their children with the values and morals that the Duggar kids have been raised with.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I don't know if y'all recall when Anna & Josh were first married. Anna started wearing make-up, jewelry. They had Makenzie's ears pierced. They were finding their way, & I don't think anyone would say anything about them is inappropriate. However, I wouldn't have had the baby's ears pierced. This is what Jessa is going through with her hair & make-up. She'll find her way & be just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Congrats to both Jill and Derrick. Your family is so inspiring and I love that there is a wholesome show on television to show that moral values are still alive.

  68. The two girls are very different by their admission. They seem to have made wonderful choices with their future partners. I'm very happy for them. I never watched their show much until lately. I really enjoy how the parents and the family are part of the courting process. God Bless all of them.

  72. I think Jessa looks beautiful. I am so happy to see these girls making their own decisions and doing things different from their family expectations. Next, I hope they enroll in a REAL college, ditch the chaperones and hold hands. You go girls!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Has anyone thought that her makeup my look darker because of the filter that is on the picture?
    You all judge to fast and don't really take anything into consideration. CALM DOWN if you THINK she's wearing a tank top. (which she isn't) but really, you can still be appropriate with a tank top. And if someday she chooses to put one on I will not judge her. Who says she can't establish her own views on things? And really makeup or no makeup, she is still the same person. I am sure most of you wear makeup, and how would you like it if A BUNCH of people judged you just from one little picture? Really, you need to think about the way that you say things, whether she reads them or not, they can still be hurtful. Getting all hung up over one picture is ridiculous! "Oh my! Is she wearing a tank top?" "Why so much makeup?" "Oh, I will pray for her."
    Come on! She is a regular human being that has a right to wear a tank top and makeup! Just put yourself in her place; she has the world watching her, and if she makes one move that is "Unlike a Duggar" she will get judged for it the second she makes it. That can be hard as a young women. Now, just settle down and think about what ya'll have been saying. You shouldn't gossip or get so upset about the littlest things. If she wants to wear more makeup than usual than so be it! What if it was a special occasion that day? A picture is worth a thousand words, sure, but don't let those thousand words be a bunch of gossip and judging.
    Thank you,

  74. Some people say "not so fast" and some say "why aren't Jessa and Ben already engaged". Jessa I say do your courtship yours and Bens way after all it is your courtship. Stay strong in your beliefs. How much makeup u wear or if your dress is sleveless those types of irrelavent things in my opnion, will never change your morals, beliefs, and self respect. Many people with lots of makeup and sleeveless shirts still can have all three.

  75. Derick looks so much more handsome with his hair cut and fade shave. I enjoy watching the Duggars.
