On the Jill and Jessa: Counting On episode “Josiah Pops the Question,” while Jinger and Jeremy get a trial run at parenthood, the eighth Duggar child Josiah Duggar leaves Tontitown, Arkansas and travels to Georgia to propose to Lauren Swanson. Lauren is the first of nine children; her father Dwain is the founder of the ministry Courageous Men of the Word. (The Swanson family appeared on 19 Kids & Counting in 2010 — see link below.)
On March 5, Josiah posted a photo of him and Lauren — who said yes. Josiah noted: “God definitely opened our eyes in his perfect timing to show us how we complete each other.” He also says the more time he spends with Lauren, the more he realizes he can’t live without her. Their courtship lasted six weeks; their engagement was four months. Spoiler alert: Josiah and Lauren married in June at John Brown University Cathedral of the Ozarks in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Jill and Jessa: Counting On airs Mondays at 9pm on TLC.
I feel like the most blessed guy on earth ?… Lauren said YES! God definitely opened our eyes in his perfect timing to show us how we complete each other. The more time I spend with Lauren the more I realize how I can’t live without her. There’s no one else I’d rather spend my days and grow old with! #engaged #weddingplanningbegins
