The Little Duggar Family Before Mason

We're working on updating the header with a picture of Mason Duggar, and as we do that, we want to share this new photo with you, taken soon before Mason's birth.

Josh Duggar, Anna Duggar, Mackynzie Duggar,
Michael Duggar, Marcus Duggar, Meredith Duggar

  1. Cute pic but you may want to correct the name :)

    1. Michelle Kibler - any time the blogger accidentally writes the wrong name or wrong anything, many people comment to correct her. Because the comments don't show right away, nobody knows if anyone has told the blogger, so everyone wants to be helpful and point out the mistake. Then after the blogger corrects the mistake, everyone who didn't see the mistake is always confused about all the comments with the corrections, because they can't see the mistake that used to be there.

  7. Before commenting, think of Anna! Be kind people think twice pray and then write a comment

  8. Just wanted to point out you have Marcus instead of Mason, before you start getting a bunch of nasty comments. :) have a wonderful day!

  9. Hi, I think you might mean Mason?

    ReplyDelete
  10. ? i thought the new baby's name is Mason.

  11. You know there are too many kids when the admin of the family fan blog can't keep track! The new baby is Mason, think you need to fix that lol!

    1. No Marcus is also one of their sons...Mason isn't born yet in this picture

    2. Starr - the blogger did accidentally say Marcus when she meant Mason. She's corrected it.

  14. The kids are adorable. Anna still has a forced smile and sad eyes. I pray for peace for her.

    1. OR she could just be tired from having to get all her kids together to take a picture. It can be quite a hassle.

      Delete
    2. I think she has tired and very pregnant eyes not sad eyes and a forced smile

      Delete
    3. I am a mother of 6 kids, at times tired and stressed. So my eyes and smile look the same way often. Prayers of peace are a God send.

  16. Ellie,
    Dont you mean Mason (I think that's his name ?) - not Marcus?? You might wish to check the order of those M names before posting your blog.
    Ps If 5 M names are confusing what about 19 - dont worry we are all bound to goof up some times with that many same first letter names.

    1. Ps -I will now add (to my blog above) - it is a really nice photo of Josh Anna and the 4 children. Haven't the oldest two children grown up & changed so much - Amazing ! I hope that they are all able to spend much time enjoying the new little addition to their family - Mason.

  25. Huge mistake, putting themselves out there in the public eye again. This is a vulnerable marriage and the children have a right to their privacy. All the forgiveness in the world will not take away the fact that deep-seated psychological issues are not prayed away in just a few short years. Josh has a long way to go. They do not need the added pressure of cameras and TV crew present.

    1. It's just a picture, it's not like he's back on the show. considering that almost every family in America posts photos online, I don't think it's weird for them to.

      Delete
    2. You and I know that, 8:40, but for some reason, the Duggars can't stay away from TV, the internet, and other publicity. It's not unusual for people to go from one addiction to another, or substitute one for the other. If they can't see the need to stay private after all that's happened, then heaven help them.

    3. It's their business.

    4. Very well put.

    5. A big amen anon 8:4O. Completely agree.

      Delete
    6. It's called sin,not psychological issues. It can be forgiven, and it can be overcome-through the blood of Jesus Christ. Josh will have to continue to fight his flesh and "renew his mind", but "all things are possible with God," and believers who may be struggling need to see that.

    7. Says who ? YOU ?

    8. I agree with you 100%

    9. This comment is so sad and judgmental. Breaks my heart for people to speak words if criticism instead words of life. 😞
      May the Lord bless this sweet family abundantly. πŸ™

      Delete
    10. You are right 4:46. I believe that being on tv and in the public eye does become an addiction. It was how they were raised. You can see it has become a bondage to them because not one of them hold a steady job which tells you that they are absolutely dependent on being on tv or in tabloids to earn a living and keeps them in the public eye. I feel bad for the little ones that have no say so in all this.

      Delete
    11. Anon @ 6:31 Josh does have psychological issues which have never been addressed with professionals. While having faith is good it alone will not help him with his deep seated problems. Also
      while he himself does not seem able to accept personal responsiblity for the things he has done he cannot work on his issues and move on in life, he is at risk of relapsing.

      Delete
    12. I understand and I hope Josh is working hard to be the man he wants to be and the husband that he should be for Anna. I know it hasn't been easy for her and I'm sure the kids knew something wasn't right.

    I believe in this blog it was meant to say "Mason", not "Marcus". Marcus is in the picture.

    The picture you've just posted is actually a great picture of their family and I am personally pleased to see the parents looking happy and healthy.
    I realize you get many negative comments about Josh. But I am very glad to know that you still include him and his precious little family in your updates and posts.

  104. Someone can't do horrible things, disappear for awhile, then burst back on the scene, smiling, and expect us to feel as if nothing happened. Josh has not handled this properly with the public, especially if he wants to be a public figure again. It feels as if his ego is going right back to where it was before his fall, and that's not healthy for him. He's not one who did well with fame, so he should not be seeking it again now. That's my honest opinion.

    1. Agree w/you 6.57. Josh needs to stay humble if he wants to avoid relapsing, something he had trouble doing before.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Great picture!! So happy that you share photos and info on Josh and family. As God's children none of us are perfect we all sin - but if we confess those sins and ask for forgiveness then He/Christ forgives us. We all need to also forgive each other when we sin and then repent. It just seems Josh has a peace through his face now - when we give up our secrets and sins and let God help us it makes all the difference. Praise God!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Not to be rude or discouraging, but just because they're still married and had a baby together, doesn't mean everything's "all better" and "fixed". Anna thought her marriage was wonderful and so was Josh, while Josh was cheating, before and during her prior pregnancy. I have no problem forgiving and I pray for Josh & Anna (that they know Jesus and walk in His ways, live a life worthy of Him), but trust once broken, must be earned. Josh lied and deceived his viewing public, portraying himself as a godly family man who loved his wife and valued his family-something he was not. He's got a very good history of apologizing, not so much with repenting. I'll wait to see long-term fruit in keeping with repentance. That's not being judgemental or a hater/troll, just doing what God told me to do ("Even a child is known by their actions.").

    1. While I agree with you, everyone is sitting in their own homes probably typing the same thing at the same time, they don't check with each other before posting. Also the admin chose to allow all these posts through, maybe they should have just posted an 'opps made a boo boo' post and fixed it instead of allowing over 100 posts through, just a thought!
