According to both People magazine and CDN the four hour courting commute between Hot Springs, Arkansas and Tontitown, Arkansas is too much for Jessa's fiance Ben Seewald. So he's leaving his business, his college and his parents to move in with the Duggars.Interesting development and one that seems more likely to be geared toward providing new content for the television show. Ben Seewald is moving to the Duggar homestead, where his courtship with Jessa can be captured for the TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting. Isn't Ben the one that had his own established business in Hot Springs?  Guess this was more important than continuing on in his own business. Does this mean that Ben will e … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Chivalry is Important?

Brienne Maid of Tarth and Jaime Lannister - always squabbling over who holds the sword and stands in front of who.

by Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger Duggar from their book "Growing Up Duggar" From page 136 - 137: It warms our hearts when we're around young men, including our brothers, who are courteous and quick to practice the fine old art of gentlemanly chivalry. Some women these days think that allowing men to help them with anything makes them appear weak, and they refuse to take a man's hand to help them down a step or object to a man's offer to help them carry a heavy love. However, a gentleman's courtesy is not about women being weak or strong; it's about men needing to be men. Gentlemanly behavior is cultivated as they learn to serve others and treat ladies as ladies.  We encourage these e … [Read more...]

An Open Letter to Duggar Defenders

Michelle Duggar being awarded Vision Forum’s Mother of the Year with Beale and Doug Phillips

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy FeminismMore than two years ago I wrote a blog post titled My Concerns about the Duggars. To this day it continues getting hundreds of hits daily, along with the random comment. Probably half of the comments left on it defend the Duggars as upright, responsible people raising healthy, well-adjusted young people. These comments often lash out against me, calling me bitter and so forth. I’ve often thought of responding to these comments with further blog posts, but so far I haven’t.Today that changes. This post consists of four parts, which deal with the Duggars’ subculture,  the argument that they are happy so nothing must be wrong, th … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Quiverfull?

quiverfull

by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from "A Love That Multiples" pages 92-93 We find it amusing how many reporters copy and past information they find about us that someone else has copied and pasted without checking the facts. For instance, even though wiki and some Internet blogs report that we are part of the Quiver Full movement, we are not. We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives. God says children are a gift and a blessing and we believe it! QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the … [Read more...]
