Israel is 2 Months Old!

The day after Jill and Jessa appeared on The Kelly File to discuss the trial their family walked through more than 12 years ago, Jill and Derick Dillard celebrated their son's two-month birthday. Doesn't that adorable smile just melt your heart?

    What a precious gift from God. His smile says all will be well. My thoughts and prayers are with you all amidst this time of turmoil. We know He has forgiven all and we pray that others will learn to trust that He has dealt with all. I feel in my heart that the ones who should be on trial here are the ones that broke the law in releasing Josh's records illegally. And of all people they knew they were doing wrong. Keep up your chins and I pray we see you back on TV soon. I miss you all

  18. Awww.....thank you so much for posting this! He's adorable! I am grieving right now because I live for your show. However, if it does not continue, I guess that will be God's will. I laugh at the people who think you are watched because of the mega-size family. It may have started out as that, but the show continued because you are such strong Christians who are raising great children to be great adults. LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

  21. I so love me some "19 Kids & Counting" Duggar family! I love all of you...I am so upset the way the media and some people are treating your family! I love Josh and I know that this time is terrible for him. I hope that he knows that are many that support and love him. He is not a monster and I for one still want to see him on the show with his sweet family! Oh my gosh whatever happened to forgiveness, second chances, love and friendship??!! I will stop watching TLC if they remove your show! All of you are almost like family...many of us have watched some of you born, and all of you grow up before our eyes. Keep the Faith and remember that many still care and love all of you!!!!

  22. I really enjoy watching your show but not at the expence of hurting any one. i like all 21 family menbers, plus grandchildren, grandma dugger, and cousin amy also. dont film anymore these kids dont deserve this hatrad loved josie's singing was beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  23. Miss your show, sometimes in life, growing up, we make bad choices, our Lord forgives us and enlightens us to a better life and what he wants us to change in our lives. No one escapes this growing up, many things happen in life to make us seek our Lord. Forgiveness is a gift the Lord gives us to change. I am hoping your show continues as it teaches many families good values, morals, and the Christian way of life. We are still humans and not perfect, but we do seek forgiveness and also forgive others.

  35. I was more than molested by my older brother. When my dad found out he did nothing. He said not to talk about it because it would hurt my mom. That was it. Done. Well.... not done. It was 40 years before I got an apology from him. I did forgive him and my dad. I did it through the grace of Christ. My brother is not saved and still bears the scars from nothing being done for him. My heart breaks for him but through the end I love him. When the apology came it was with grief and regret. My one question was did he ever hurt anyone else. He said never. I believe the same to Josh. How wonderful to have parents who did something.

  48. I pray that all thesensationalism and crucifying of your family situation as of late will be used by God to make people realize that everyone struggles with sin . Just because we are Christians doen't make us immune but we have a choice just like everyone else. I support your family in every way and I hope Josh and his family areokay as far as job situation goes.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Precious little boy. I had hoped to watch him grow up on TLC and hope they change their mind about pulling the show. I don't think your family ever tried to show that you were perfect. But as Christians we know we are forgiven and that is what should be portrayed. Prayng for all of the Duggars.

If God can forgive us our sins why does the public have a right to plaster it. everybody that is coming down on Josh is there anything you would not want people to know about you. I'm not saying what he did is right but if God can forgive and if his siblings can forgive then it's really nobody else's business!

We just LOVE the Duggars!

  132. Tuesday night was our family nite to watch 19 Kids and Counting....hoping that we will see them ALL back on TLC.....if not I am sure we won't put on TLC anymore if they drop them....it was one show we all looked forward to on Tuesday nite...I don't think any of us have something in our closets that we'd like to hide....can't wait to see them all back on again....even the re-runs....more enjoyable than what's on NOW....will be watching and reading anymore news on them....

  133. With all of the media coverage on this issue, I find it so wrong that the Duggars are being completely throttled. Josh Duggar admits he violated his sisters and the girl outside their family. HE WAS A KID! It was absolutely wrong and he has owned up to his wrong doing. Jim Bob and Michelle followed protocol more so than many, many people would have. This is a no brainer. Air the series. There will always be those who come against Christians and their values. This is nothing new. This family has portrayed family values again, more so than many, many other series. I value what they are about and their mission to tell and show the world who Christ is. Please, please continue with this show as the world needs it. Obviously, Josh will need to keep healing along with his family. I pray that he realizes that his sins have been forgiven, and the ones that are throwing the stones are lost.

    With much love and prayers,
    Denise
