Is 19 Kids and Counting’s Jill Duggar courting?
          

Jill Duggar Potential Courtship

With the season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting right around the corner, many viewers are eager to get a glimpse into a courtship by watching Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald’s relationship unfold. But, there are a few good reasons to believe 22-year-old sister Jill Duggar is going through the same process.

During a recent stop by the HuffPost Live studios, host Nancy Redd asked the family who has gone through a courtship. Oldest son Josh Duggar and Jessa Duggar both raised their hands, but younger daughters Jordyn and Johannah chimed in to say “and Jill! and Jill!” multiple times. (The question begins at the 6:28 mark.)


In Hattiesburg American story one week later, the writer referred to Jill as “the first daughter to start dating.” With 19 kids to keep track of, the author may have confused Jill with Jessa — especially because someone who knows a lot about the Duggars wouldn’t dare to use “dating” as a synonym for “courting.” That being said, the author did immediately follow with a quote from Jill…

“I’m really looking for that good godly character,” Jill said during the Growing Up Duggar book signing. “That’s something that’s going to be with you throughout your life. Knowing you’re going to be a good dad to your kids and someone you want to spend the rest of your life with.”

Adding to the mystery, there is a new photo of the whole Duggar clan posing together. The picture includes Ben, who was standing beside Jessa, and a mystery man who appeared to be rather close with Jill. (Is that a side hug?!)

At this point, there are way more questions than answers about Jill’s potential courtship. But, considering the Duggars have been known to keep these kinds of secrets until opportune moments, don’t be surprised if Jill’s courtship is confirmed in the relatively near future.

19 Kids and Counting returns to TLC on April 1 at 9/8c.

      Seriously question- does their cul*cough*faith allow the women to shave their legs and above the knees? Because what a waste of a beautiful face if it looks like they are packin a wig factory down below.

      • amy

        With the amount that these kids have been sheltered from the real world, I highly doubt that they would even know to shave down there.

      • Anna40

        Seriously? The conversation is centering around genital shaving??

      • Renee L

        Haha! Above the knees. For a second there I actually pictured the thigh area.

    • Murphy

      I hope she is–girlfriend needs to get outta there.
      I hope Jana gets a bro soon too.

    • anjealka

      If Jill is courting I hope it is with a man with similar goals (career missionary work) and she can fulfill her dreams of being a midwife to the poor overseas.

    • Janet

      Anyone else notice Jill was showing her legs not only that her knees. Vava Voom!

    • Pamela

      I know we can’t see very far up close, but from what I can tell, he is CUTE! Go Jill!

      It can’t be seen in the pic but I guess Ben is wearing his “I survived Roe vs. Wade but Roe vs. Wade won’t survive me” t-shirt. Lovely.

    • heyBale

      I cant question their parenting skills cus they sure do have alot on their plate and handle it well. Theyre nice people and have lots of love in their family.

      but for parents to instill this idea of marriage as the only possible solution to a happy adulthood (or the pleasures of it) just doesnt seem very adult of them. They have to know marriage isnt for everyone and it should be up to the individual to decide what they want out of life and not be pressured into making a decision they may regret just to please their parents.

      22 years old and havent did the deed… I would have jumped out of my skin with frustration if I had to wait that long.
      I would feel guilty to limit my childs life like that just to please me.

      • Jess

        It’s because they are in a brainwashing cult. There is strict religion and then there is cult living. And as lovely and nice as the duggars are, they are in a cult. If you read about their religion and practices their niceness kinda goes away. Nice people don’t ship their kids off to a camp to get re-brainwashed if that said child starts questioning things or doing things outside of their belief. Josh and Jana have been sent to this place, and I’m not sure if any others but probably so. Not to mention their blanket training of hitting a baby with a swatch for giving in to the coax of the tempting toys outside of the blanket.

        • heyBale

          Thats pretty gross to do that to your own flesh and blood.
          And if its done in Jesus’s name… angers me that any kind of punishment would be associated with a man who would want nothing to do with that kind of lifestyle.

          I’ll have to look into that camp. Hard to imagine such a place is allowed to exist. How could a parent think something like that is done out of love… thats sutff you do to an enemy. poor kids. I would never look at my parents the same way if they were to betray me like that.
          ughh, this is gonna give me the creeps for the day :(

          • Anna40

            The only camp i know about is like a christian bible camp. Its a lot like summer camp or somthing like that for kids, but only a couple of weeks long, and from what i understand, the kids love it.

            • LexiconD1

              It’s a brain washing camp. Just like everything else that’s connected to Bill Gothard.

              Go Jill…but, I’d rather see Jana courting. She’s the oldest, and in my opinion, the prettiest (and she seems to be the sweetest of the bunch).

          • Jess

            It’s called Journey to the heart- and its not like a bible summer camp like someone else mentioned. Children are sent there to get re vamped back into their cult like thinking. It’s pretty creepy

            • Ayla Stewart

              Have you been there? Do you have some footage from there to prove your assertions of how things are run? If not, just stop.

        • Anna40

          Im not sure where u get ur info bu the duggars do not spank their children. They believe in time outs.

          • Renee L

            Not sure where you get your info Anna, but they promote “To Train Up a Child”. That’s about as far as way as timeouts as you can get. P.S. You might want to give up crusading for these people. It’s not gonna work. People already know they are cray.

            • Anna40

              I get my info from what the duggars have said on their tv show. You may think they are crazy, they may think u are crazy. Each person has a right to live the way they choose, if they arent breaking the law. I crusade for anyone that is attacked for their religious beliefs because they are outisde of the norm. They duggars have been asked numerous times what they think of the nay-sayers. Mthey have nothing but kind words to say.

              • Renee L

                Just be careful believing everything you see on TV. They try to put on their best face on TV. It’s nice you crusade for people for religion, but you’ve got to realize, everyone (not just them) are allowed to have their own opinion. You can’t go criticizing everyone for expressing their opinion either.

                • Anna40

                  I dont criticize anyone for having a different opinion. I try to follow the philosphy that u can have healthy debates and disagreements but they should never result in insults, rudeness or unkindness. If ihave treated u this way then i truly apologize.

              • bj700

                WHAT THEY SAY… and WHAT THEY DO…. is 2 different things.. just as it is for MOST PEOPLE!!! PROOF? The show where parents announce Baby # 20 (which Michelle ends up miscarrying)-1 son-don’t know which 1, but older, WALKS AWAY from ‘photo op announcement’ -AS the show comes back from commercials-he is WHINCING-and vigorously rubbing his arm-like he was in PAIN!-redness like he was PINCHED! HARD! Loving Dad GLARING at him! Son could not look up at camera! In the Duggar POOP HOUSE???

            • Ayla Stewart

              They advocate only PARTS of to Train Up a Child. Not the baby hitting. If you did the slightest bit of research you would know that.

              • Renee L

                Don’t tell me to research if you don’t know if I did or didn’t. I HAVE researched. Michelle Duggar used to post on a pro-Train Up a Child message board years ago. She mentioned she did use the flexible rulers for swatting. Now that she’ famous, she denied it.

                • Ayla Stewart

                  Sorry but your “research” is bogus hearsay. There are a few anti-Duggar people online who *claim* without ANY evidence or screenshots, that Michelle posted on an ATI parenting site about hitting her kids with a flexible ruler. It is a total rumor. No proof at all exists and the claim was made years after the so-called event took place. Spreading rumors you heard online isn’t research.

              • Renee L

                If you knew how many deaths that book has caused, you’d understand the outrage of even endorsing PARTS of it.

                • Ayla Stewart

                  I’m well aware of how many deaths have occurred and I personally do not support the Pearls at all and if you want to look into it you will see I have even posted negative reviews of the their books on Amazon to stir people away from buying it. That having been said the overall idea that you must train children (through repeating behaviors, walking them through their actions, etc) is an idea I endorse as a mother of 5 and one that the Duggars do as well. I can train my child without beating them (in my house we use a point reward system) but training a child none-the-less is an excellent way to parent. Children aren’t born knowing how to act, how to treat others, how to entertain themselves, etc.

                  • Anna40

                    You are a rational person in all the madness. There is so much slander about the duggars its crazy.

          • Jess

            My info is the books they recommend and the religion that they follow. They may say different on television, but their parenting pholosophy is off of books that some may take as borderline abuse.. If not abuse (ie the blanket training). And the religion they follow is a cult religion.

            • Anna40

              They are Baptist, which is hardly a cult.

              • LexiconD1

                Anna…

                Google BLANKET TRAINING then tell me they don’t beat their kids, or babies for that matter.

                You’re wrong about the Duggars.

                • Ayla Stewart

                  Some blanket training involves spanking but the Duggars do not practice that part. Research and sources are good things. Wild accusations about a family you don’t know are quite another.

                  • LexiconD1

                    BS

                    Just because YOU don’t want to ‘research’ and believe the BS you see on TV, that is NOT reality.

                    Same poster, on these Duggar articles, but you always use a new persona.

                    If you wish to remain ignorant, fine…

                    • Ayla Stewart

                      I’ve done my research. First hand information from the source (The Duggars themselves) says they do not spank. Unless you can cite credible sources for your assertions you need to admit that you’re just a rumor mill. I post on a lot of Duggar articles but I don’t use various personas so I have no idea what you’re talking about but your paranoia seems in need of medical evaluation.

              • Amy Lynn

                They are Independent Baptist, Michelle says that in their blog. There is a big difference in the way they practice vs. traditional Baptist churches. It doesn’t take long to read Michelle’s personal blog, and research the reference tools they use to teach their kids. Two of their trusted leadership figures, which distribute many manuals they follow are both dealing with legal issues for crimes committed on women. Google Bill Gothard and Doug Philips. Doug’s Vision Forum has since been shut down after he confessed his sins. Recovering Grace is a good website to read first hand accounts from those that were raised under Gothard’s teachings.

                • Anna40

                  Bill gothards teachings are excellent. Ive been to a seminar years ago. Its teaching based on the bible. If the accusations about gothard are true then i believe he should be,prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. BUT that doesnt change the fact the the teachings are sound. I dont care what kind of teaching or group u are always going to have abusers. If someone teaches the dangers of drugs and then becomes a drug addict,they may be a hypocrit but the teaching to stay away from drugs is still good. Befor someone slanders another person, they really need to be sure of

                  • Amy Lynn

                    You went to A seminar, you weren’t raised under all the rules. His teachings have and still do cause a lot of emotional distress for many that are raised under his guidance. Oppressing children and raising them in fear is very detrimental. Research and learn more about it, and you will be thanking your parents for it only being one seminar, and they didn’t get sucked in.

                    • Anna40

                      I know alot about gothard theology. I dont know where u are getting your information, and im sure u believe its true but unless you are absolutely sure that the duggars do all of these horrible things people accuse them of, then it is at the very least slander. I try not to make such horrible accusations unless they can be proven. Most accusations i see are ssumptions based on bias websites or rumors, ie the duggars beat their children, the kids are uneducated, they belong to a cult, etc. The bible tells us not to bear false witness against our neighbor.

                      • Amy Lynn

                        Never once have i accused the Duggars of doing the horrible things people accuse them of that you mention above, that is the first time i am hearing of those accusations people make about them. I do not normally follow the Duggars. I have been researching different religions for the past several months, learing the history of where they came from and why they have split to different branches. I mainly focus on politics, but i was curious by how much religion impacts our political system. That being said I saw a preview for their show the other night and was curious of what they believe in, so i went to the TLC page and Michelle’s blogs and looked at her recommended books and teaching materials, and started my research there. The only thing you posted above that i may somewhat agree with is the education of the children. It is very one-sided and they are not given the option to explore and form their own opions.

                      • Anna40

                        You did mention they opress their children and raise them in fear. I dont know how u know this. Gothard teachings does not promote opression and raising children in fear, just the opposite. Ive watched the duggars for years. Ive read all of their books except for the latest one the girls put out. They are some happy kids, well loved and well taken care of. In a world where so many kids dont have cariling living parents, or where parents let their kids run wild, where many turn out to be rebellious and even lawbreaking, i think this is a breath of fresh air.

                      • Amy Lynn

                        Re-read what i wrote because never once did i speak of the Duggars. I was speaking of Gothards teachings. Gothards teachings have pushed many children to rebel. Some are now atheists and want nothing to do with religion. I have nothing to say about the Duggars or how they raise their family to each their own. But i do pray for all of Gothards victims, there is many. Religon is a way of keeping masses under control by instilling the fear of god into them. Every religion interprets the bible a different way, but then you have some that take it further and put their own little spin on things that’s when it becomes dangerous. Just like the 12 yr old in the FLDS, if she didn’t consummate her marriage with the prophet, she wouldn’t get into heaven. Since you want to keep bring up the Dugger’s, i do feel in a way that the children are opressed. From what i understand all their access to reading materials, friends and the internet are controlled by their parents, they have no other way of learning to form their own opinions on things.

                      • Anna40

                        I say this with all sincerity, if u r doing rsearch u may want to watch some episodes. Yes, u will not agree with a lot but i urge u to really look at the kids and how they are treated. I think u wont beable to help but see some happy, decent, fun loving kids. Your beliefs on religion is exactly that, your beliefs. There is unconditonal love, peace, acceptance and happiness in truly knowing the God of the bible. Im sad that u feel like you do, but i respect your right to choose and believe whatever way u like. U deserve respect even though i disagree.

                      • Amy Lynn

                        I have watched a few clips and i am curious to watch some episodes after my research into their beliefs. Do the older children get much time just being themselves with so much time spent taking care of the younger ones? I have read a few blogs from girls that don’t know how to deal with their emotions after being taught soo long to suppress them and always present a happy, joyful face for god. They are very overwhelmed with them and the world from being sheltered so long. I am very curious to see in 20 yrs if all the Duggar children they still follow what their parents have taught them.

                      • Anna40

                        I dont believe the kids are taught to supress their emotions. They also seem to have time for hobbies and jobs (midwifery, volunteer firefighters) friends, trips and just hanging out. Will all the duggars follow their parents lifestyle? It will be their choice. It may be hard for some to understand, but some want that lifestyle.

            • Anna40

              Blanket training is only abusive if u spank the child. If they dont spank its no different than a playpen. People are thowing the word “cult” around incorrectly. A cult is a group that teaches abhorent teaches and extremes. They are baptist which has the most sound,biblical doctine of any christian church. Their doctrine is not cultish. What people usually call them cult for, is there lifestyle. Their church doesnt tell them that they have to wear dresses, cnat hold hands with boyfried, etc. this is their personal choice. A cult wld be if the church made them do that.

        • Ayla Stewart

          You have no sources for your crap accusations. Stop making stuff up.

      • Anna40

        I dont believe the parents tell them they have to get married. They interviewed the girls once and they said they wld still be very content even if it meant they stayed single.

        • heyBale

          ok. thats good to know

        • EllieB

          Seeing as it’s the father who ultimately decides if his daughter is going to get married (until marriage, she’s his property; after marriage, she’s her husband’s property), the only reason they’re “meant to stay single” is if daddy decides that he doesn’t want them away from home. And, right now, daddy Duggar is looking at a show cancellation if they dont get something interesting going (how many times can you watch the kids go to the dentist?); and mommy Duggar definitely isn’t popping out babies anymore. So, it’s time to marry off the kids.

          • Anna40

            You have some awfully big asumptions. Even if you are right, the girls are old enough to leave if they want. They have chosen the lifestyle for themselves. Live and let live. Be kind to all.

            • Different Anna

              They have not chosen this lifestyle for themselves–they were raised in it, bathed in it from day one, and were not allowed to be exposed to different ways of living. They know nothing else, and have not been allowed any chance to separate themselves from their parents and question the beliefs they were raised with–which is usually a significant part of becoming an adult and your own person. Doesn’t mean they wouldn’t choose to continue on with the same lifestyle and belief system that they were raised in, of course, but it does mean that free will and independent choice are not big factors in their lives.

              That said, I truly hope the two girls are happy with their choices in life. As for live and let live, it would be nice if the Duggars followed that tenet, as well.

              • Anna40

                No child has chosen their lifestyle for themselves. All parents raise their children in the lifestyle they think is best. Their lifestyle is just so different from the norm. Their children seem like the happiest, fun loving, kind and giving kids ive seen. Their girls are actually very smart women, midwives, volunteer firefighters, etc. they know their lifestyle is different and have chosenit anyway. As for live and let live, i dont see the duggars putting people down that dont believe like them. They have never said a mean or unkind word. Yes, they speak up share their lifestyle, but not inmean,derogatory way.

                • Different Anna

                  Yes, obviously parents choose the lifestyle their children live. Key words there are ‘parents’ and ‘children.’ At a certain age (18, here) children become adults and can choose for themselves. It’s highly unlikely any of the Duggars will ever do that (at least without major psychological impact) as they are controlled in every aspect of their lives, from birth on, from choice of spouse (only with Daddy’s approval), to jobs (for both the males and females of the family), to babies or no babies or the timing of said babies (birth control is not ‘allowed’), etc.

                  Also, bestowing glowing praise on them requires turning a blind eye to all the negatives about the Duggars that have been exposed–from outright abusive practices such as blanket training, and re-education camps (remember Josh being locked in a closet?!)), to parentifying the children by heaping much of the task of raising the younger kids onto the older kids, and not allowing them to express the full range of emotions (only happiness allowed), and on. It’s wrong to overlook the bad while playing up the good.

                  • Anna40

                    There are so many untruths that circulate the web. Too many to cover here bu one being
                    the blanket traianing. The duggars dont even believe in spanking their children. We obviously see things differently. We are opposite sides of the spectrum. I think the duggars are raising winderful children that are following their footsteps inregards to their faith. I thinkk they will live happy, fufilling lives being kind and decent to everyone. It may be different than what some think is best. I thinks ok to disagree and even criticize if its done without insults and meanness.

                    • LexiconD1

                      Anna, YOU are purporting many of these ‘untruths’, and assumptions. I’ve at least looked into the cult they belong to, and it’s leader Bill Gothard. Have you?

                      Do you understand the oppression these people raise their kids under? Do you get that they have zero education, zero friends, zero outside influence.
                      The kids (even the ADULT kids) can’t so much as go pick up a gallon of milk at the local store, take a shower or use the computer/cell phone, without an accountability partner? How many adults do YOU know who live under such oppressive rules. And, don’t say these kids agreed to this, they don’t know different.

                      Happiness, I doubt these kids even know the meaning of the word. They’ve never known a day of freedom in their lives.

                      • Anna40

                        I appeciate your passion but im telling you, i know you are wrong on especially 2 points. Blanket raining…there are extremes and abusives in everything. If there is spanking a small in blanket training then of course i dont agree. There are those that do it lovingly with no spanking and its and for no more Than a coupke minutes at a time, that is no different than putting a child ina playpen. People want to think the worst. They want to believe the duggars beat their children. This is just not true. Secondly, i went to a bill gothard seminar years ago. Everything was based on normal christian doctrine. To be a cult they wld have to teach aborhent teachings.

                      • LexiconD1

                        Wow, so much denial….

                        Guess it’s not just a river in Africa.

                        The fact you keep defending people who BEAT BABIES is downright scary.

                      • Anna40

                        If u are sure that they beat their children then, please, report them to child protective services so they can check it out.

                        Recovering Grace is a support organization for individuals that grew up with the same “gothard teachings” as the Duggars follow. As with any ‘group’ some may have taken things farther than others. But it is a good read to hear first hand accounts. Along with Bill Gothard’s teachings, they also supported Doug Phillips Vision Forum. Both of these men are currently in legal battles pertaining to abuse against woman.

                      • Ayla Stewart

                        Going to Recovering Grace for information on Bill Gothard is like going to a Neo Nazi site for information on Jews. They are an openly anti-Gothard site who have been trying to take him down for years. Their statements aren’t without huge bias and on their own cannot be trusted. Also, Doug Phillips is not under any legal threat, he admitted to an affair. I suppose after Bill Clinton’s affair you never supported him either – correct?

                      • Amy Lynn

                        I never supported either Clinton Before or after…lol Yes they have been talking out about the abuse and pain he has caused them over the years. How do you feel about Gothard stepping down? Doesn’t say much for his innocence.. And then Philips grooming a young girl for years, taking her on family trips, it is disgusting when a person in authority that the community looks up takes advantage of a young woman in his congregation, and yes there is still talk of a civil case against him. The more i read about The Duggar’s religious beliefs and who they follow it reminds me more and more of the FLDS with the corrupt man sitting on top, instilling fear in others as a way of control, while taking all their money. I am sorry if you were raised under this fear.

                        Google Recovering Grace, Free Jinger, Bill Gothard, or heck, read Michelle Duggars books.

                        What now….

                        From Purdue OWL: “When deciding which sources to use, you should take the purpose or point of view of the author into consideration. Is the author presenting a neutral, objective view of a topic? Or is the author advocating one specific view of a topic? Who is funding the research or writing of this source? A source written from a particular point of view may be credible; however, you need to be careful that your sources don’t limit your coverage of a topic to one side of a debate…Credible sources are written by authors respected in their fields of study. Responsible, credible authors will cite their sources so that you can check the accuracy of and support for what they’ve written… Never use Web sites where an author cannot be determined, unless the site is associated with a reputable institution such as a respected university, a credible media outlet, government program or department, or well-known non-governmental organizations.”

      So, I suppose no one here supports Kolbe Bryant, Bill Clinton, Sean Penn, Brittney Spears, Sean Kingston, Al Gore, Alex de Silva, CeeLo Green, John Travolta, etc. You don’t vote for them, buy their movies, watch their games or listen to their songs because they have all been accused and/or convicted of sexual harassment.

        None of those listed above stood over and directed a congregation, and earned the trust of many communities. The people you are referring to were authority figures, someone to be looked up to, and respected. A person that all who followed yearned to meet their approval, and they took advantage of the power they had over them. The accusations are horrible, but what is worse is the severe abuse of power by someone that is suppose to be the most trusted one in your community. If they are capable of doing what they are accused of, don’t you even once wonder what else they could be capable of? or how true their word really is?

          The christian faith teaches (and whats hard for some people to understand) is that we are to put our faith in God, not man. Man will always do dispicable things and let you down, from the president of the United States, to a pastor or spiritual leader. Like any group, christians have leaders but their faith is in Jesus Christ.

      Their addiction to having one child after another, now 19 children, is bizarre in itself. It is impossible to give those children the attention they needed individually. The older children seem very immature in the many statement they have made. They are on TV and must present themselves as this wonderfully happy crew. Common sense will tell you that this family has a lot of serious issues. The mother admitted to having body image problems and was bulimic and anorexic.

      • Anna40

        The mother was bulimic as a teen and was not raised in a christian home. I have a feeling with the cameras following the family around for years wld have taken every opportunity to show the kids in a bad light. People keep saying that because we are not really there in person we do not know the kids are truly happy. Well the same thing goes for those that think the kids are so unhappy. They are making a huge assumption. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and not assume such ugliness about people.

      Their psychotic defenders are almost as creepy as them. Who knew super conservative cult members are allow to click onto a site like Starcasm, which covers many “Unchristian” and “immodest” topics? It’s almost as if the Duggars/TLC aren’t as they present themselves and hire people to troll the internet to defend their fake ridiculous persona. Claiming “religion freedom” or “you’re being intolerant” is the classic defense of people that belong to cults. The “Church” of Scientology was exposed for using paid members to argue with people on the internet on every single website that mentioned them, their job was to Google search “Scientology” and then argue with anyone that posted negative things on any public forum, like Discuss, just to maintain their “image”. I would not at all be surprised if TLC/The Duggars/Gothard related companies aren’t paying people to defend them online. And that is why I will not argue with a certain commenter anymore, because they are either a paid cult member or really, really naive. Either way I hope *you* break free and never “blanket train” your children if you ever have them. Because it is abuse and the Duggars are child abusers for doing it. Religious freedom does not make any type of child abuse okay

        U seem so angry and uptight. U also tend to be making a lot of sterotyping and huge assumptions. Do u not believe that rudeness, unkindness and name calling are signs of intolerance and is what people do when tHey cant or dont want to have an intelligent conversation? Or is that not intolerance? I think people wld be more apt to consider someones view point if it wasnt so hostile.

      Jill was proposed to a couple of days ago, per a friend who lives in their area. TLC filmed it.

    • anjealka

      Way to go Starcasm! This was the first site I saw report Jill’s courtship and they just announced it(of course right before the season) to Derrick. Looks like he is a better pick then Ben. I know I’m normally a Duggar downer, but this courtship looks a bit more promising, he is older, has a career and is in missionary work like Jill.

    • AnnaBananaBird

      There are quite enough of you already.

    • AnnaBananaBird

      Sorry, that was mean. What I mean is, at least it’ll be your uterus exploding with a million science illiterate kids and not mine.

      Scripture tells us that satan is the author of difficulties, NOT God. God never gives difficulties .We do NOT thank God for the difficulties but we thank him for getting us through them. ” Let no man say that we are tempted( tested) of God.” Jesus came to give us life more abundantly but satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. Never accuse God of giving us difficulties because he doesn’t.
