Newlywed Update on Jill & Derick

by | Jan 12, 2015 | 6 comments

Question from a 19 Kids and Counting fan on Facebook: How is Jill adjusting to married life? 

I think it’s been a very smooth transition for Jill and Derick. Jill had so much help from her siblings to make the transition, helping her pack up her stuff at our house, moving and unpacking at her new home. They have their schedule already — they get up and off to work or Jill works on her studies. Sometimes she’ll pop by our place since it’s awfully quiet at her house. She’s so used to studying with noise. It’s really unusual for her to work in total silence.

But, yes, she’s got her house set up and she’s already had company over. It’s so sweet to see them starting their lives and their family together. We always make sure to include them in our family events in case they want to be a part of things. They’ll come over and celebrate birthdays and other events with us when they can.

It was truly the joy of her life to marry Derick and they both feel so blessed to have each other. They are just really, really happy to be married and enjoying married life.

It’s so special to watch these budding relationships blossoming. I know God’s going to use that love to help them stretch in ways that they might not otherwise try, because that’s the good thing about marriage. It really does stretch us and helps us to become the person that God would want us to be. You’re much more willing to get out of your comfort zone when it’s with somebody that you deeply love.

It’s just so sweet to watch these guys and girls that are really in love. Love is in the air and it’s good for all of us to be around that, even if the little siblings have to go, “Oh no, they’re kissing again, oh my!”

    What is your main focus on birthdays? How do you celebrate? Sorry I have never watched a show. I did not own a TV until recently and we do not broadcast tv anyway. I like what you have done and I was very pleased to visit the page that you recommended. My kids happen to have their names all starting with J and a girl in church asked me if I was imitating you guys! I had no idea you existed but I am very glad to know now.

    I just wanted to say that I have been watching your show since the very first episode. I have been blessed and touched by your family in many different ways, and just love how devoted you all are to Our Lord Jesus. There is no better way to be. Michelle I am you age and only wish I could have carried all the babies that God had intended for me however I was unable to, but always wanted a big family. So I sort if lived through life with you with all those babies you were having and watching them grow into beautiful young ladies and men. I can remember watching Josh and Anna’s engagement and wedding (I was so proud for you both that I cried), and then the grand babies Mackenzie, Michael & Marcus and now a 4th one on the way. Jill was such a beautiful bride and she is lucky to have derik in her life with your newest grandson Israel David. Jessa looked so beautiful on her wedding day. I know that you fill pretty far in advance so things are happening before we the audience even know (although baby Israel’s) birthday is a day after mine. God Bless your family Jim Bob & Michelle I love watching your show, you and your family are in my prayers. Meda Rose
