Chat with Jill Duggar: New Book 5

All this week, we are sharing fresh material from Ellie's recent interview with Jill Duggar. (Click here for part 1, here for part 2, here for part 3, and here for part 4.) Now for more:

Ellie: How are each of you contributing to the book?

Jill: "Jessa has put a lot of work into it, and I have started my turn going through and adding some fun stories and such. Jana has added input here and there and is still waiting her turn to go through the draft, and Jinger is gathering pictures for it."

Tomorrow's topic of discussion: Other than working on the book, what have Jill and her sisters been up? Are there any Duggar courtships on the horizon?

During their conversation, Jill shared with Ellie the details of an upcoming speaking engagement. This July, the family will share at Vision Forum's Reformation of Food & the Family Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger will also be speaking at the event. We have posted the information below, as well as on our Appearances page.

  1. i love reading these interviews. did you personally meet jill and ask her these questions, or was it by email or over the phone?

  2. ooh, I can't wait till tomorrow's! :-)

  3. Dear God, could you have diluted this interview any more? I was tolerating it when you only posted two or three questions per post, but this is ridiculous. If you want more posts, get more content. Don't stretch out what little content you have just to seem like you're a constantly-updating blog.

  4. Ditto! I'm excited for tomorrow's post, too.

  5. I'm going to have to disagree with you on that one, Anonymous. Lily and Ellie post great content and are constantly updating their blog. I personally prefer multiple shorter updates, as opposed to a single long one that would take 20 minutes to read.

  6. I can't wait to read tomorrows post as well! I think the book will be great!

  7. I agree with Sophia! Lilly and Ellie do a great job! Be thankful there is such a thing as The Duggar Family Blog!

  8. Thank You Lilly and Ellie I appreciate what you are doing!!

  9. hi,
    does anyone know when The Bates Family: Baby makes 19 is starting?

  10. I don't want to seem non-encouraging or the such, but I would like it if ya'll would add a few more questions/answers to the posts.

    Otherwise, great job on the blog! I enjoy reading this stuff greatly!

  11. Thank you! I have really enjoyed reading each part of the interview Ellie had with Jill. Keep up the good work!

  12. Do people really pray so rudely? I think they are doing a fine job!

  13. dear Lily and Ellie, do the duggars know or like that you own this blog? thanks Sarah
