Duggar Family News reveals that Jill Dillard may have completely forgiven her parents for all of the trauma that they have caused her in her life. After she appeared on the docu-series, Shiny, Happy People, Jill has had a lot of changes in her life. She opened up about what happened to her as a child and the incident of her brother, Josh Duggar, sexually molesting her and her sisters.
After all of the hate that she has gotten from people, it turns out that Jill may be taking the high road when it comes to forgiving people in her life, including Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Let’s find out more.
Ever since she had her world turned upside down by her family, Jill has told her fans that she has just been trying to heal. Part of her healing process was to work with her parents and that would help her to identify where she needs to heal.
She has been working on her book too and that has clearly helped her healing process. Jill and her mother, Michelle have also been spending a lot more time together and it turns out that Jill has clearly been working on mending relationships with her family members.
Jill’s family was very upset to see her on Shiny, Happy People because of how she spoke about her family’s religion, the IBLP. The IBLP has very strict rules on how to raise children, educate children, and punish children.
The Duggars have followed this religion for decades and it turns out that not everything in this religion is all about love and peace. There are abuse allegations and sexual assault allegations all on the leader, Bill Gothard.
Jill’s Healing and Her Book
Not only has Jill been talking about how much she has loved working on her book, but also, she has been trying to take some time for herself. She took to Instagram to share what she was doing this week. She shared some pictures of herself outside in her garden.
She captioned the post, “I’ve been so busy with the book, some travel and other life happenings that I haven’t been able to get out into the garden as much as I have wanted to!
This morning though…I strapped the babe to my back, set myself a timer (because it’s helpful for me to have a goal & not to just stay out there forever when I want to but have other things to get done) & with a podcast going from my phone in my pocket, I was able to harvest some okra & tomatoes before the thunderstorm came.”
She went on, “The boys brought in quite a cucumber haul after getting home from a recent trip & I tried my hand at some homemade refrigerator/freezer pickles which turned out amazing!!
Now I’m looking forward to doing more of the same + prepping and putting more squash and zucchini in the freezer for all the delicious things later in the fall & winter too!” She also asked her fans for their recipe ideas. From the looks of it, Jill is taking time to heal and for herself.
