Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, have always been upfront about their faith. They are currently working as missionaries in El Salvador with their son, Israel. Some of their work was documented on Season 1 of Jill & Jessa: Counting On, but much of it is being written on their blog. Fans of the family have been following them for several years and often catch up on what the Dillards are doing in the mission field by reading their updates. Duggar has been the subject of pregnancy rumors for several months now, but it was recently confirmed they are not expecting as they are focused on their mission work.
Having an active blog has been different for Jill Duggar. She came from a home where much of her life was sheltered and spent with religious teachings. Duggar’s husband shares her passion for Christ, which is why they both decided to head to El Salvador and spread their knowledge. According to the Hollywood Gossip, Jill Duggar believes “the end of days” is near. In a recent blog post, she asks her followers if they are ready for the “end of days.” It seems that Duggar and Derick Dillard are both preparing for the end of the world as stated in the teachings they follow. With things in chaos, they want to be prepared for what happens next.
Being a part of the Duggar family hasn’t always been easy for Jill. She was the victim of molestation at a young age. The person who violated her was none other than her oldest brother, Josh Duggar. While she had worked hard to put it behind her and move forward, Duggar was forced to relive those moments when police reports of the incident were released last year. This caused a snowball effect, and the Duggar’s original reality show was canceled just after Jill gave birth to her son, Israel.
When it was announced that Jill Duggar would be starring in Jill & Jessa: Counting On and it would be picked up by the TLC network, fans were excited. There was some serious uproar when the network decided to cancel 19 Kids and Counting last summer. Duggar filmed with a crew in El Salvador but most of the show focused on Jessa and the family back home. TLC tried to hide Josh Duggar’s name and limit his mentions, but it didn’t matter. Advertisers were pulling their ads from the show, and there was speculation a cancellation may be in the future. As it turns out, the show was renewed for a second season earlier this week.
Fans are talking about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s new blog post discussing the end being near. Because of the strong faith they both share, they want to prepare their fans for what they believe is going to happen next. Duggar has been brought up in a religious family and follows the rules her parents have set for her even though she is married a mother of her own. Her son is being brought up much in the same way she was, and family is incredibly important to Duggar and her husband. As they reach out to their fans, the critics are roaring back.
With the following Jill Duggar has on social media, it is not surprising that she has stirred up such mixed emotions with the latest blog post. Many Christians believe the end may be near, but the critics are also making a lot of noise. While Duggar doesn’t focus or feed into the negative, it does impact what she chooses to share. As the days move forward, fans can expect more religious posts from Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, as they share their views and minister to those they believe need it the most.
