Michelle Duggar Remembers a Special Wedding Gift

Question from facebook: Did you and Jim Bob have a really memorable or unique gift from your wedding?
Wow, I had so many wonderful gifts from that special day. There are quite a few that come to mind, but there’s one in particular that my family and I really appreciated and use to this day.

When Jim Bob and I were setting up our home, we had a beautiful wood table that folded out so that you could add leaves and make it really big. We found it used and just loved it. Of course, when we were first married, we kept it folded down because there were just two chairs and the two of us at the time. So as a surprise, a sweet elderly couple that lived near us arranged to make us something really special for the table. They were like our adopted grandparents and they lived three doors down from our first honeymoon cottage.

Unbeknownst to me, they came into the house one day and measured our table so they could create a one-of-a-kind handmade crochet table cover. The best part was that they made it big enough to fit the table when it was fully expanded with all the leaves in place. When they presented it to me, I just cried. I had dreamed of the day we could expand the table to its fullest and see a big family around it. It just seemed like it’d be forever before we’d be able to unfold it all the way and actually use it. I couldn’t wait. We used it for special parties, baby showers, wedding showers, and events for friends until our own family was large enough to fit around it. That tablecloth has been a special keepsake all these years, and I have used it over and over.

Q&A part 4

Julie: Is Jim Bob and Michelle thinking about adopting a child to put in their home?

The last time that we heard was that they were praying about having to adopt another child

Donna: What (future) career choices do all the kids who haven't chose one wish to pursue?

Not sure yet. It's whatever God has placed in their heart

Susan :How does the entire family feel niw that Jill is married and no longer living at home? How has the change affected the happenings around the house?

I am sure that they miss Jill since she was a big help with cooking and with the younger ones. They still see a lot of her.

Karen: How do you keep teens from falling into peer pressure and stop the altitude?

Michelle puts a stop to them and normally they are not in that sitituation to began with.

Melissa :I have enjoyed watching this family grow - and grow up - throughout the years. A very inspirational family. I'm wondering what plans Jana and John David have? Are either of them in a relationship yet?

Jana and John are not in a courtship. Jana wants to be a doula while John David is learning to be pilot.

Ally: Same here. I home school three kids on one computer. How did you do all of your kids?

Each child is different on how they learn.

Cindy: I am homeschooling my 3 grandchildren on a tight budget. I would love any tips.

Each child is different on how they learn. Make sure that you pick something that is right for your family.

Tina: If Jessa is older & her & Ben have been courting longer why did Jill marry first?

We wish that we could answer it but we can't. Jill is actually the one that is older than Jessa but I don't think that matter on how old they are. It's just making sure that you know that person really well since the family doesn't believe in divorce.

Carissa : Are Jim Bob and Michelle still considering a fertility specialist to have another child?

I am not sure

Brandy: What is something you haven't covered yet?

There is more to be seen on the next season of 19 kids and counting airing this fall

Pam asked: when Jill got married and left home, how was it determined what clothes she would be able to take with her because all the grown girls share? by the way ya'll are a wonderful family!!! love your show...

I am not postivie if the family did this but I am pretty sure that the girls (older ones) just sat down and went through the clothes that Jill wanted to take. I am also that she got some new ones.

Jeanette: Is Jana in a courtship? Are any of the boys in a courtship?

As far as we know that Jana is not in a courtship or any of the boys. They are waiting for the Lord to light the way to their future spouse.

It's time to plan a wedding part 2

Yesterday, we posted the first part of the interview about Jill's wedding and today we are going to wrap up the interview.

Jill wanted her wedding to be Do it yourself kind of wedding so she looked on Pinterest and craigslist. She even found a woman that was in thir local area that was arried six months before Jill. Jill brought tree stumps from craigslist and went to Sierra and asked her to put 1 Corinthians on the tree stumps for her.

At the wedding reception, the guest were served sweet and salty foods that were made by volunteers. Here what was on the tables

Sweet Table

3,000 servings of cake brought in from across the nation

2,000 cupcakes

3,000 cookies baked at a cookie making party at the Duggars' house

3,000 root beer floats

Salty Table


Trail mix


Chips and homemade salsa made by one of Jill's clients

Sierra and her team had an amazing time helping Jill planned her wedding. Sierra had to make sure that Derick's mom was able to stay close to her son since she is battling cancer. His mom was not able to go to the rehearsal dinner but was able to make it to her son's wedding.

Sierra reveals that she doesn't have what it takes to be wedding coordinator since everyone is so love and so joyful. Sierra even made sure that Cathy (Derick's mom) was able to see her son eat the cake. Sierra is excited to see what the Lord has in storage for both Derick and Jill.

Sierra is a wife and mother of three boys and expecting their first daughter. Sierra has appeared on 19 kids and counting before when Anna was making Michael's first birthday cake.

It's time to plan a wedding part 1

Right after Derick and Jill got engaged, Jill started to plan her wedding. She wanted to make sure that she incudled her sisters and mom along with a few friends. Sierra gave us the inside tip of planning the wedding. Sierra is not a professional wedding planner but she does help out with planning the wedding. Sierra has planned a couple of weddings and offered her help to Derick and Jill right after they got engaged.

Sierra went up to Jill and said "If you want help with it, I would love to help you." Jill agreed to the help. Sierra and her friends had three months to plan out every single detail of the wedding. Jill gave them the ideal number of guest which was 3,000 people but only around 1,500 actually showed up for the wedding.

Jill had many helpers from her friends to her sisters and mom to help plan her wedding. Jill and Derick knew what they wanted and show it all to Sierra who was happy to help. The wedding was pretty much a Pinterest wedding. Jill came up with the idea of hanging both her mother and grandma's dress and Derick's father's police uniform.

Derick and Jill wanted to make everyone feel honor to be there with them on their special day. It was so cute.

We can't wait until it airs. There is another part to this blog that will be up tomorrow!

Michelle Duggar’s Budget Honeymoon

For our honeymoon, Jim Bob and I planned a trip near our home because that’s what we could afford. We were going to go to Mount Nebo and Lake Fort Smith, both in Arkansas. We chose state parks for our destinations because the cabins there were so reasonable.

When we arrived at our first destination, we couldn’t believe the difference between the photo on the brochure and the reality. We chuckle about this now, but I did not go and look at the places ahead of time. I just looked at the brochures and I thought "Okay, it’s a state park and what we see is what we’re going to get." The picture showed a lovely cabin right beside a beautiful flowing river, but when we got there, the cabin was really rundown with awful orange curtains -- and cobwebs everywhere! On top of that, the river was completely dried up; there was no water at all. So we opted instead to go into town and stayed at a hotel in Fort Smith. We didn’t get the setting we were anticipating for our first night together, but it was still sweet. Next, we went on to the incredibly scenic Mount Nebo and stayed for a few nights. At that point, our car started acting up and we were like, you know what? Let’s just go home to our house, to our new place, since we were looking forward to being there together.

It was a small fixer-upper house, about 900 square feet total, and Jim Bob got such a good deal on it. We spent the rest of our honeymoon fixing up our little house, which definitely needed a lot of work! Jim Bob had moved in a month before the wedding, but I didn’t move in until after we were married so this was our first time living together.

Before our wedding, we had ripped out all of the cupboard doors in the kitchen and sanded them down, but we didn’t have time to finish them before we got married. So when we got back after our honeymoon, there were no doors on our kitchen cabinets and the place needed a lot of work, but that was okay. We were living on love and it was so exciting.

It was just so precious to be in our own house together for the first time. Jim Bob was already being a husband and working on the car. I remember thinking, "Oh, how romantic. He’s at our house and he’s working on our car." It’s funny the little things that you just hold dear to your heart forever.

Michelle Duggar Remembers Her Wedding Day

My wedding to Jim Bob almost 30 years ago was sweet and simple. We got married in our church where our pastor officiated our ceremony. At the time, our church was still being built so we were meeting in a big gymnasium for services. We actually got married in the hallway of the building -- we had set up folding chairs to use as pews! And we did the exact same thing when we renewed our vows 25 years later.

I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money and keep the expenses reasonable. We didn’t buy flowers and barely even decorated the hall. Our backdrop was a lattice that we had woven through with crepe paper. Our colors were all pastels; yellow, pink, green and blue. I even made my own bouquet using fake flowers so I could keep them to decorate my home with later. When my sister arrived from out of town and noticed that I didn’t have any flowers, she offered to create a flower display to put up behind the altar area. She used silk flowers and made a beautiful arrangement.

For the wedding cake, I made it myself and froze it. A friend decorated it for me using icing that she made with ingredients I bought for her. Another special touch was wearing Jim Bob’s mother’s wedding dress as my dress. Everything we did for our wedding was so inexpensive, but perfect for us. We wanted to spend our money on our honeymoon, which was our first time to be alone together.

The reception was very simple with cake, nuts and punch. It was such a sweet time! We invited our closest friends and family (about 200 people). When we had our 25th anniversary renewal of our vows, we repeated the same reception style with the same songs and even the same pastor.

Although we didn’t videotape our wedding, we took a lot of pictures and we had it recorded on cassette tape. As our children were growing up, we would listen to our wedding cassette again every year on our anniversary. We would reenact the ceremony, show them how we walked down the aisle and tell them the stories about what it was like. It was a great moment to share with them in such a special way.

Bringing back the trivia?!

We get a lot of questions on when we are going to bring back our weekly trivia. I am hoping to be bringing it back on July 6th!

The Voeller Dressing

1 c. olive oil
3 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. Bragg’s™ Liquid Amino, tamari, or soy sauce
2 T. honey
2 T. lemon juice
1 T. thyme
1/2 t. pepper
This dressing stores very well in the refrigerator. The Voeller Dressing can also be served over pasta, potatoes,& vegetables
& can be used as vegetable dip. (Bragg’s™ is much better than soy sauce, & makes a big difference in flavor.)
makes about 1 1/2 c.
