Photos with the Duggars

Hello blog readers! It's your faithful blogger, Ellie. I have a few photos of myself and the Duggars to share with you all. Spending time with them is always a pleasure. They are an encouraging bunch of folks, and although they are on TV, they really are just normal people. I especially enjoy any chance I get to chat with Michelle. Her love for Jesus shines through her words and actions.

I don't always take photos when I visit with the Duggars, but I knew you all would enjoy seeing some, so I snapped a few.

    1. Hi there,

      I haven't heard the Duggars speak about Josie's seizures recently. But I do know she is doing well. A very sharp and inquisitive child.

      Have a blessed day,
      Ellie

    2. You have many faithful readers but you tend to acknowledge the same ones over and over while ignoring others. Some of us do not blog, have google accounts or facebook.

    1. It varies. We live far apart, so that makes it more difficult.

    1. I have noticed recently that prints from the 70s have made a comeback. They are really cute and reminds me of my teen years.

    2. girls--not girks. Plus the girls wore bikinis in the Hawaii special and jan tried out for pom pom girls and marcia tried out for cheerleader-- ativities that dont line up with the duggar values. They dressed their girls wholesome and im sure josie was dressed wholesome

    2. Thank you Ellie, I enjoy your blog(s) about the Duggars and the Bates family very much. I get inspired by their love in general, they are such a warm and loving bunch of people. I truly envy you being able to meet them. Sometimes In daydream about leaving everything here in Holland behind and live with them Duggars to revive my love for God and the standards that come with it. Their genuine love makes me smile and hopeful to refind the Lord somehow. We make life so complicated when we know that all we need is mutual respect in the name of God and act by it. Hearing Michelle talking about her beliefs and views on daily life calms me down when I'm feeling down. They don't know how healing their family is to me. I suffer from PTSS and I'm bipolar and their show and Interaction calms me down. Thank you very much Ellie, you help me calm down with your updates. In Holland the Bates family is not aired unfortunately... Keep up your good workshop, God bless you all and the people you care for! 😍

  26. Thanks for including yourself in these photos. You look like a sweet Christian girl--just like all the Duggar girls. Yesterday I sent a comment to TLC encouraging them to continue with Counting On and resuming 19 Kids. I asked them to do the first episode about God's forgiveness and let Josh share an on-air, personal apology and mention that this is why Jesus died for us. We all have sinned! Sure hope they listen to their faithful viewers! I live in San Antonio, TX and would love to meet Jinger and Jeremy. God's richest blessings to all of you!

  31. Before I comment Ellie you do look like Jana a bit. I would like to know is this who is the next Duggar to Court? I read that JohnDavid is courting a girl from Texas is that true? & I read that Jana is courting a family friend is that true?

  34. I'm glad you can be with the Duggars from time to time, Ellie! After all, we do need content for you to write about πŸ˜‰ You are beautiful here. Peach is just your color looks like! I would just love to be able to go with you sometime to visit the Duggars! πŸ˜‚ I haven't met Michelle or Jill yet. Would love too. I have met the other girls tho. At that time, about a year and half ago, Joy was very open and friendly. Would love to see her married now.

  36. So enjoyed these photos, thank you. I wish I could meet the Duggars. I've been a fan from almost the very beginning of "19 Kids." I miss that show so much. I've loved seeing all the Duggar kids grow up, although it is a little sad, too, like my children growing up and moving away. I've always loved and admired the Duggars.

  37. Ellie, how did you meet and get close to the Duggars? I have met them twice at two different book signings, but of course wish we could actually be friends with the family!
