Being parents ourselves is one of the most amazing experiences in life, however, we could have never anticipated the joy being grandparents brings us. We cannot wait to meet these new little granddaughters! —Jim Bob & Michelle

Josiah & Lauren

After suffering from a miscarriage last year, Lauren and Josiah have been cherishing every step of her current pregnancy. So when it came to finding out the gender, they wanted to be surprised along with everyone else! They had bloodwork done to determine the gender and gave the results to Lauren’s sister Lily. At a small party, each family member was given a balloon filled with white, pink or blue confetti and whichever balloon had either blue or pink would determine the gender. But Lily surprised them by hiding one final balloon in the back with the actual reveal confetti – PINK! It’s a girl for Josiah and Lauren!

"We are so grateful for God blessing us with a sweet baby girl! If she only knew how loved and how many people have already been praying for her! She truly is a gift...a miracle from God.” —Lauren

Joe & Kendra

This gender reveal was centered around Garrett’s first birthday party and they gave him a smash cake! Garrett was the person who revealed that he was having a baby sister once he got to the middle of the cake and there was pink frosting!

"Parenting has already proven to be more wonderful than we could have dreamed. Even though we come from large families, there is nothing like having your own children. We are so thrilled that a little girl will be joining our family! Garrett is going to be such a great big brother." —Kendra

The color pink keeps on revealing itself around here, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Congrats to Josh & Anna, Josiah & Lauren, and Joe & Kendra!!

It's a Girl!

We are so happy for Josh and Anna and their growing family! Love this creative gender reveal they did with their kids! So cute!

 

Josh and Anna's kids drew and cut out bumble bees and decorated a "beehive" for a "sience project" not knowing they were to have a blue or pink "volcano" coming out of the top of the hive! Marcus was the little scientist and did an awesome job mixing the eruption of the colored volcano for his siblings. 

 

Can't wait to meet your little girl this fall!

We are so sad to share that Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away at home on Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019 at the age of 78. Mary Lester Duggar grew up in Farmington, Arkansas and was married almost 50 years to J.L. (Jimmy Lee) Duggar who preceded her in death.


Mary found great joy in sharing her love for Jesus and her own story of how at age 15 she asked Christ to forgive her for her sins. It was at that time she committed the rest of her life to live for Him, a commitment she kept with devotion. She loved to share with others how they too could be forgiven of their sins, live a fulfilling life as a Christian, and one day spend eternity in heaven.


She is survived by her daughter Deanna Duggar and her son Jim Bob Duggar, 21 grandchildren (Amy King, Joshua Duggar, Jana Duggar, John-David Duggar, Jill Dillard, Jessa Seewald, Jinger Vuolo, Joseph Duggar, Josiah Duggar, Joy-Anna Forsyth, Jedidiah Duggar, Jeremiah Duggar, Jason Duggar, James Duggar, Justin Duggar, Jackson Duggar, Johannah Duggar, Jennifer Duggar, Tyler Hutchins, Jordyn-Grace Duggar, and Josie Duggar) 13 great-grandchildren (Mackynzie Duggar, Michael Duggar, Marcus Duggar, Israel Dillard, Meredith Duggar, Spurgeon Seewald, Henry Seewald, Samuel Dillard, Mason Duggar, Gideon Forsyth, Garrett Duggar, Felicity Vuolo, and Ivy Seewald), with several more great-grandchildren on the way!


Mary Duggar was also a successful real estate broker who owned Good Neighbor Realty and was noted in Northwest Arkansas for being the broker who put together the property sale for the John Q. Hammons Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Springdale.


Grandma Mary Duggar has been on the TLC shows, "19 Kids & Counting" and "Counting On" with her family for over 15 years. Many referred to Mary as "America's Grandma." She is greatly loved and will be missed so very much!  She lived a tremendous life as a follower of Christ, a wife, a devoted mother, a loving mother-in-law, and a much-loved grandmother. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes the virtuous woman, indeed she personified these beautiful verses with her life.


We deeply appreciate your prayers for our family and all who loved Mary during this time.

Ivy Jane Seewald was welcomed into the world Sunday, May 26th. We were getting ready for church when my water broke, and we were thinking ‘Well, I guess we have a change of plans!’” After three and a half hours of labor, Ivy was born at 5:57pm. Her due date was June 5th, and since both of our boys went five days past their due date, we thought we would go late again. We were so surprised when she came two weeks earlier than her brothers. We definitely weren’t expecting that! Ivy was born at home weighing 7lbs 14oz and 20 1/2 inches long. “She feels so tiny compared to her siblings!” Spurgeon was born at nearly 10lbs, and Henry close to 9lbs. “We’re so grateful to God for this precious gift. She is already so loved. Her big brothers adore her! - Ben and Jessa

We are so thrilled for Lauren & Josiah expecting! It was very difficult losing their first child in a miscarriage, but now God has blessed them with another child on the way. This year we are going from 12 to 17 grandkids, soon they are going to outnumber our own kids, we are so grateful for each one of them. It’s not easy raising kids in today’s world. Over the years we have asked God for wisdom to help keep our children on the right track and to point each of our family members to a close relationship with God. One of the resources that has been priceless are the messages at https://embassymedia.com/The practical Biblical teachings have inspired us and taught us how to lead our children spiritually, how to have a close marriage relationship, how to resolve conflicts and how to conquer anger. We pray that each one of our descendants will make a positive difference in this world! -Jim Bob & Michelle  

God’s faithfulness to us in our most difficult moments has sustained us and brought us such love and comfort. We cannot begin to tell you how much we are looking forward to holding this baby in our arms this fall. Every good and perfect gift is from above and we are looking forward to this new season of parenting together! - Josiah & Lauren
