If you have been keeping up with our blog, you know that 2015 was a difficult year for the Duggar family. Amy (Duggar) King--niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar--shares her thoughts on her new website.
The Duggar cousin was at a wedding dress fitting when the news of Josh Duggar's pornography addiction and marital unfaithfulness broke. "I was completely shocked just like the rest of the world," she writes in her post. "Rage came over me, sadness crept in, and reality [set] in that the person I had known my entire life turned out to be a fraud and a complete stranger."
Less than three weeks after Josh confessed to being "the biggest hypocrite ever," Amy married Dillon King. Josh had already checked himself into a long-term care facility, but the rest of the Duggar family attended the wedding.

Amy was touched to see Anna at the event. "I gave her a huge hug right before I walked down the aisle, prayed with her, and left her and my Aunt Michelle a letter on their chairs," shares the Duggar cousin.
"I hope [Josh] gets the help he needs," Amy told PEOPLE.

Despite the trials that she and her family have faced in 2015, Amy (Duggar) King has determined to "shine for Jesus" in the coming year, putting emphasis on prayer, forgiveness, and acts of service.
