Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are planning ahead for her labor and delivery process. The two are writing Bible verses for the big event!

Derick Dillard Writes Bible Verses

The 19 Kids and Counting twosome recently took the time to write out passages from the Bible - by hand - to hold on to during the birth of #BabyDilly.

"Writing out bible verses for encouragement during pregnancy, labor and delivery!" Duggar wrote on her Instagram account, a go-to for pregnancy info.

"#scriptureboard #babydilly #pregnancyprep #blessedparents."

The mom-to-be, who has shared some good Jill Duggar baby bump photos already, showed off another glimpse of her growing bump as she sat on Dillard.

Sorting through the scriptures, the religious couple wrote several passages down with different colored pens, including Isaiah 26:3 and Deuteronomy 4:9.

19 Kids and Counting star Jessa Duggar recently incurred the Internet's wrath for comparing the Holocaust to abortion during a trip to Washington, D.C.

But is it really as simple as that? A closer reading of her thoughts suggests not.

The controversy arose after Jessa visited the Holocaust Museum and wrote on her Instagram about the unspeakable genocide that occurred during World War II.

In the young Duggar's mind, and everyone else's, this atrocity took place because people abused power, victimizing those whose lives they viewed as lesser.

She wasn't making a political statement in her mind, but a moral one.

Jessa, who is engaged to Ben Seewald, went on to express heartache the for innocents who lost their lives because others deemed them unworthy of it.

Yes, she went on to mention abortion as part of her post, and her apparent belief in creationism is another story, but read the full context of it below:

On 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 9, the second installment of TLC show Tuesday night, the family geared up for Jill's wedding in a number of ways.

When you've got 19 kids, you have a lot of tasks, but also a lot of warm bodies to help with them. Of course, that assumes they can offer actual help.

After Jill Duggar and company shopped for a vintage wedding dress and bridesmaids' dresses, 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 9 kept at it.

This time, they needed shoes to complete their modest, but beautiful ensembles.

“Jill’s been a really good bride,” Jill’s sister Jana Duggar, who was selected as the Maid of Honor for her wedding to Derick Dillard, said of the non-Bridezilla.

“Yeah, she has like what she wants, and she just kind of does it, and it works out,” added another one of Jill's sisters and bridesmaids, Joy-Anna Duggar.

19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 8 saw the Duggar girls go glam, in preparation for Jill's big wedding, which on the show is just six weeks away.

What did this endeavor entail for members of the enormous Arkansas family?

For Jill Duggar, it meant selecting five bridesmaids and one very special Maid of Honor. No, it wasn't Jessa Duggar ... but their older sister, Jana Duggar!

Their first stop was a hair salon, to try out some different hairstyles and makeup in preparation for the big day. Did we mention it's just six weeks out?!

Jill is far from a bridezilla, of course, in keeping with her humble and modest roots, and Derick Dillard reveals he likes her her best natural and curly.

Yup, their heads are in the right places, 1,000-person wedding and all.

That's not to say the Duggars don't look amazing with their hair and makeup done on 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 8. They really do.

Yeah, she went there. 

Just one day after Jessa Duggar bashed evolution and atheism on Instagram, she returned to the social media site to express an even more controversial view.

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald in DC

Jessa, 21, and fiance Ben Seewald, 19, are in DC at the moment, and according to her page they recently paid a visit to the US Holocaust Museum.

The future Mrs. Seewald was clearly moved by the experience, and with good reason. The museum brings to vivid life one of the most horrific tragedies in human history.

Unfortunately, and all too predictably, the emotions that Jessa experienced at the museum inspired an lengthy, impassioned defense of her various political causes and religious convictions.

None of which - at least as most people probably see it - have anything to do with the millions of lives lost in concentration camps in Europe during WWII.

The Duggar family's conservative values and penchant for courting, rather than dating, when it comes to children coming of age and finding mates are well established.

You won't believe some of the specific things they don't allow, however.

Dates Without Chaperones
The Duggar parents often accompany their children on dates in order to maintain their "accountability" and "keep things from going in the wrong direction," per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave "moral danger." When the parents aren't available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

"In today's day and time, it's a little bit strange to be in our early 20s and still have not had sex," the newly engaged Jessa Duggar admitted in a recent interview.

"But," she adds, "it's how our parents did it."

That it is, and it's admirably old-fashioned.

Whether you subscribe to their methodology or not, one has to hand it to the Duggar family for setting moral standards for themselves and sticking to them.

People could learn a lot from their devotion to the core values in their lives. Some of the strict rules they've established to enforce this policy, however?

When it comes to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, they are all about the sex, as evidenced by their giant brood. But there is a time and place for it.

On TLC's 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6, Jill Duggar went shopping for a wedding dress. Flanked by her mother and siblings, obviously.

This point in the planning process was a family affair (aren't they all?) and took place on a girls trip to D.C. to visit Josh Duggar and his wife Anna.

Jill chose her maid of honor (Jana Duggar), and bridesmaids (her older sisters, plus Anna Duggar) and went to find a dress at a place in Fredericksburg, Va.

After a day of scoping out potential choices, Jill found her dress, and there was no hemming and hawing before she said yes to this special garment.

Sometimes, as we saw on 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6, you just knew. This was certainly the case when she met Derick Dillard!

Before you know it, she'll be walking down the aisle in that beautiful gown, as each episode of the reality TV series brings us closer to that milestone.

With Jill, Derick, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald becoming quasi-celebrities in their own right these days, we know the events that are to come.

After saying accepting Ben Seewald's marriage proposal and getting engaged last month, Jessa Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting already has her wedding plans set.

For Saturday, November 1! Of this calendar year!

"I am super excited," Jessa says of her upcoming nuptials to her boyfriend/fiance of just over a year now. "Everybody has really been pitching in."

She does have a lot of hands to help, at least ...

Duggar family dating rules don't specifically state that you can't have a long engagement, but it seems like an unwritten one, 'cause they move right along!

As her older sister did just a few months ago, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald will share wedding vows and their very first kiss on their big day.

They have already sent out the invites, picked the colors and bridal party, and have the bridesmaids' dresses on hand. And Jessa's dress, of course.

"I put it on, looked in the mirror, and it hit me," Jessa says of that magical wedding detail, and at that moment, she knew, "I'm going to be a bride."

And very likely with child by New Year's.

The newly-engaged Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are giving her older sister Jill Duggar and Jill's husband Derick Dillard a run for their cute Instagram money.

So to speak.

Jessa and Ben literally engaged in a social media game of "I love you more," bringing us close to the point of nausea, but darned if we don't love them for it.

Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald <3

The Duggar family dating rules - sorry, courting rules - may have more going for them than we thought. Sure, settling for side hugs can be a bummer.

Waiting until your wedding day to share your first kiss certainly has kept the love and anticipation alive for Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, however.

Ditto newlyweds Jill and Derick Dillard, who are of now expecting their first child together, and gush about each other just as much as ever these days.

Both couples are known for their sappy Instagram posts, but Jessa and Ben really upped the ante by arguing over who loves the other one more.

Seriously.
