Duggars in Atlanta


Jana Duggar and Felicity Vuolo

This week (Thursday through today) some of the Duggar siblings have been in Atlanta, Georgia, attending the annual G3 Conference. This year's theme is "The Mission of God: A Biblical Understanding of Missions."

Keynote speakers have included folks like Voddie Baucham, John Piper, David Platt, and Phil Johnson. On Thursday, Jeremy Vuolo led a breakout session. Jinger, Jeremy, and Felicity, along with the Seewalds, Jana, and Jeremy's parents, have been in attendance. The Duggars' friend Laura DeMaise also attended.

Making Bread with Jana

Almost five years ago, we posted the Duggar family's whole wheat bread recipe. (Click here to view.) Since it's been a while, we wanted to update you and let you know that they still use that very same recipe, although they have since reduced the honey to 2/3 cup instead of one full cup.

Below are photos of Jana and Spurgeon baking some. And when the Duggars make bread, they don't mess around. Look at all those loaves!

Duggars #2 and #3 Turn 29

What a coincidence it is that the Duggars always kick off the year by celebrating the birthdays of their first set of twins (Jana and John on January 12th) and end the year by celebrating the birthdays of their second set of twins (Jedidiah and Jeremiah on December 30th). Wishing Jana and John Duggar a very happy 29th birthday!

Jinger and Felicity Visit Arkansas

This week, Jinger and Felicity spent time in Arkansas with the Duggars. Growing up in a large clan makes it especially difficult to live so far away from everyone, so Jinger always enjoys having a chance to get back to Arkansas and hang with her family.

While there, she was able to introduce her daughter to MarketPlace Grill, a favorite Duggar restaurant. The family ordered a chocolate mess, but don't worry, Jinger didn't allow Felicity to try any.

Jessa and Ben Seewald pregnant

"Henry, he's a bit young. He's just into eating peas and chicken and playing with toys. But Spurgeon is old enough to where he kind of sort of maybe has an idea."
-Ben Seewald

Flying with the Duggars

If you are familiar with the Duggars, you likely know that a number of them have pilot licenses. And when you have a large family that spends a significant amount of time traveling and doing mission work, that comes in handy.

But saving money on commercial airfare isn't the only perk of having a pilot license. On a clear day when one has a little bit of free time, flying is a great way to pass the time.

Lauren and Josiah's Tree

Before ringing in 2019, Josiah and Lauren Duggar took down their Christmas tree. This was their first Christmas and New Year's as a married couple, and on December 30th, they also celebrated their six-month wedding anniversary. (That day was Jedidiah and Jeremiah Duggar's 20th birthday, as well.) For those wondering where Lauren found her red dress shown in the photo below, it was an Amazon purchase.
