In Their Own Words: Weird Stories and Confessions From the Duggar Family Blogs

We have to be honest here for second — we don't usually always keep up with the Duggar family's blogs. They're usually just full of preachings and sermons, which is fine, but something we can get at our own church if we want to. And sure, they'll put up the occasional baby album, but we can also find basically the exact same photos on their various Instagram accounts. But the other day, we decided to just check them out for fun — and discovered they were full of weird ancedotes, confessions, and stories. And the best part is, they're all in the Duggars own words, not edited by some TV crew to make a wholesome, charming narrative for their TLC show, Counting On.

On their websites — because in addition to Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's site, Jill and Derick Dillard have one, so do Jessa and Ben Seewald, and Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo as well — they talk about how they met, fell in love, the weird (and umm, rather disgusting) things they do around the house, all kinds of random stuff. Even Josh and Anna Duggar's site can still be hunted down through the web archive despite the fact that they took it down a while back. But even the one long intro post they wrote back in the day was ready to get real with fans.

Reading through what they had to share with fans about courting, or "the talk" with mom and dad, or their troubled teen years, we knew we had to share our findings from this deep dive. Because this was the Duggars unedited by any outside party. And we thought it best to let the family speak for themselves. TBH, it went just about how you'd expect based on Derick's totally unfilted and regular Twitter bombs. Below, check out the weirdest and wildest confessions from the Duggar family, in their own words.
