Quarantining with the Vuolos

Living in Los Angeles, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo have been under a stay-at-home order since last month. While officials are working on a plan to ease the order, the reopening will be a slow process. So for now, the Vuolos are stuck at home, like millions of other Americans and folks across the world. Felicity will be two years old in just a few months

How long have you been following the Duggar family? Do you remember watching the birth of their first grandchild, Mackynzie, in 18 Kids and Counting "First GrandDuggar" in October 2009? In June 2011, Michael's arrival aired in 19 Kids and Counting "First Grandson." Two years later, Marcus' debut was caught on camera in "GrandDuggar Makes 3."

With that backstory, above is a new photo of Jim Bob and Michelle's three oldest grandchildren, ages 10, 8, and 6. It won't be long before they are learning to drive!

Easter 2020

Wishing all our blog readers a blessed Easter! Below are a few photos shared by the Duggars in honor of Easter.

We are grateful for a risen Savior, Jesus Christ, who paid the price for our sins by sacrificing His life on the cross 2,000 years ago, and we know the Duggars are grateful for that, as well. We are living in a difficult time, but this pandemic was not a surprise to God. He promises to be with His children through it all and to give us a peace that surpasses understanding. If you long to experience an overwhelming peace, no matter what is going on in your life, we encourage you to genuinely pray to God and seek Him. The Bible tells us that there will be troubles in this world but that we can take heart, for God has overcome the world.

One day, when our earthly lives are no more, those who have put their hope in Him will spend eternity in Heaven. Because God is a just God, he cannot be with those who have not confessed their sin. For that reason, those who have not trusted God as their personal Lord and Savior will spend eternity in Hell, a place that is infinitely more torturous than anything we have seen on Earth. God's gift of eternal life is free, not earned. No matter what you have done, if you confess your sin and make Jesus the Lord of your life, He will save you.

This message may sound crazy, but how will you feel if you find out at the end of your life that God is real and that you could have accepted His free gift of salvation? Eternity is a long time to spend in a terrible place.

Just before Austin's birthday on December 11th, Joy-Anna Forsyth found out that she was pregnant! The elated couple has since been told the gender, and it's a girl! She is due in five months, on August 19th, 2020. At around eight weeks, Joy's blood work indicated that it might be a molar pregnancy, which is not viable. The expectant mother was overjoyed to find out that the baby was healthy. Baby Girl Forsyth is due nine months after Annabell's November 2019 due date.

The Duggars and Coronavirus

A "small" group of Duggars
This afternoon, President Trump announced that Americans should avoid gatherings of 10 or more people, with the goal of stopping the spread of coronavirus. Ironically, when you have 19 children (including more than seven still living at home) and 17 grandchildren, a gathering of 10 or more happens on a daily basis. And the Duggars aren't the only ones in that situation. We have plenty of readers with eight or more children.

They sure are crazy times we're living in! Thankfully, we can rejoice that God is still on the throne and still in control.

Using heavy equipment, the crew has been hard at work doing cleanup and recovery. In addition, they have also helped homeowners locate pets and important documents.

7-Week-Old Gracie

Yesterday evening, John and Abbie Duggar headed out to the movie theater to watch the film Free Burma Rangers. Aunt Jana was happy to watch seven-week-old Gracie. We think the little peanut strongly resembles her mama, but with some of John's features mixed in. What do you think?

Duggar 'Marathon'

Duggar family camp out


It has been quite a while since TLC has shown reruns of Counting On. Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, February 26) the network will be showing past episodes during the 4am-6am EST slot for one week, not including Sunday. Unless you're an early morning riser, that's probably not the most convenient time, but those with recording capabilities can watch them later.

There is still no word on when new episodes of Counting On will premiere, but we will let you know as soon as we hear something. The full TV schedule can be found on our Showtimes page.
