Josh Duggar sentenced to serve federal prison time
Jeremy Vuolo makes a scathing statement about Josh Duggar’s sentencing
Following the sentencing of Josh Duggar in May, several Duggar siblings made statements. For the most part, many of them were not saying much. They weren’t condemning him for his misdeeds but instead offering support to Anna Duggar and their children.
However, that changed when Jeremy Vuolo spoke about his and Jinger Duggar’s stance regarding Josh and his sentencing. He acknowledged many victims in the scenario and revealed they “rejoice for justice.”
The biggest grievance Jeremy talked about was Josh portraying himself as a Christian. He was a “high-profile” Christian, and “the higher the platform, the harder the fall.”
Jeremy also mentioned the hypocrisy and the “false prophets.” This was a jab at Jim Bob Duggar, who was rumored to believe that Josh was dealing with this so that he could spread God’s word in prison.
Jinger Duggar breaks free from IBLP
Jinger Duggar has always been dubbed the “rebel” child. She is the one who married the soccer star who wasn’t pure but had come into faith later in life.
She moved away from Arkansas to live with her husband in Laredo, Texas, right after marriage. Then, she decided to change up her wardrobe and incorporate pants and eventually moved on to shorts and other things that would break the dress code she and her sisters were made to follow while living at the Duggar compound.
Now, Jinger is telling her story about why she rejects the IBLP (Institute of Basic Life Principles) and the teaching of Bill Gothard. She wrote a book about her experience questioning what she was taught to believe, which began in 2017. Jinger mentions “detangling fear from faith” as what the book is about.
In the YouTube video above, Jinger Duggar makes it clear the book is not a tell-all about her family but an inside look at her very personal journey to finding out the true intentions of Jesus. She is still very much a Christian but no longer a Christian who follows Bill Gothard’s teachings.
This is a similar journey that Jill Duggar took, which reportedly got her shunned by some family members. Whether this happens will Jinger remains to be seen, as the book doesn’t come out until January 2023.
Unannounced Duggar grandchildren
The birth of another child was always a big deal for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Once Michelle stopped having children, the birth of their grandchildren became the highlight of their lives.
Earlier this year, there was heavy speculation that Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar welcomed a baby. Neither confirmed a pregnancy or birth, and they scrubbed their social media almost completely clean. There was also some talk Kendra Caldwell and Joseph Duggar would welcome their fourth child. They didn’t confirm that either.
Interestingly enough, when Joy-Anna Duggar shared the YouTube video announcing her latest pregnancy to her family, she asked her dad what number grandchild her baby would be, and he said 30. That numbers don’t add up, considering there are only 27 known grandchildren for Jim Bob and Michelle.
Anna and Josh have seven children, John David and Abbie have two, Jill and Derick Dillard have three, Jessa and Ben Seewald have four, Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo have two, Joy-Anna and Austin have two and one more on the way, Joseph and Kendra have three confirmed, Josiah and Lauren have one confirmed, Jedidiah and Katelyn have one, Jeremiah and Hannah are expecting.
So, did Lauren and Kendra welcome babies and just not announce it to the world since they pulled back from social media? If that’s the case, that only covers two more grandchildren, so where’s the final one? Is someone else expecting and just not making it public yet?
Jeremiah Duggar and Hannah Wissmann live in a camper
While this may not be shocking in the way some of the other moments listed are, it is confusing to long-time Duggar fans and followers.
Jim Bob Duggar boasts about his real estate and has even gifted some of his children homes. So, why is one of his sons living in a renovated camper? Sure, it’s a fifth wheel, but Jeremiah Duggar and Hannah Wissmann are expecting this first child.
Wouldn’t they want a more permanent home? Also, where is this fifth-wheel camper parked? Presumably, it is on the Duggar compound somewhere. However, Jeremiah and Hannah didn’t mention that when they shared their video showing the renovations they did to make the camper livable.
With all that Jim Bob has, surely he wouldn’t be thrilled about one of his sons living in a camper, right? It will be interesting to see if Jer and Hannah show more of their camper living off and what they plan to do when their baby girl arrives in 2023.
