Recap: "A Toast to Love"

On last nights episode "A Toast to Love"

  • Derick is finally returning home to Northwest Arkansas after spending two years doing humanitarian work in Nepal. Jill enlists her army of siblings to design posters and blow up balloons to prepare to meet Derick and his mom at the airport.
  • "I've never seen Jill so excited about anything," says Jim Bob.
  • Jim Bob and the Jill are the only Duggars who have met Derick. "I feel like I know him because Jill talks about him all the time," says Michelle. "Of course Jill has explained more than I would ever need to know about Derick and what a great guy he is."
  • When the Duggar welcome crew arrives at the airport, Jill lines everyone up and grabs a heart sign that reads "I've waited 60 days for this moment." Derick's brother and stepfather are also there.
  • When Derick comes into view, he and Jill run to meet each other and engage in a full-on hug.
  • "I think the intentions were to do a side hug, but I think they both were caught off guard," says Michelle, smiling. "Needless to say, they probably won't let that happen again."
  • Derick, who says the experience was "a bit overwhelming," gives side hugs to the rest of Jill's family. Four-year-old Josie asks him if he is going to marry Jill.
  • Jim Bob and Michelle take Jill and Jessa and their boyfriends out for a triple date. "Tonight I have planned a special triple date for all of the Duggar couples to get to know on another better," says Michelle.
  • Jim Bob, Michelle, Jill, and Jessa Duggar, Derick Dillard, and Ben Seewald enjoy a meal and an etiquette class at the beautiful home of a local family and their dog, George W. During dinner, Ben makes "a toast to love."
  • Later, while Jim Bob and Michelle are out of the house, the Duggar kids prepare a dinner theater for their parents. Jana is in charge of the operation.
  • Joy-Anna's job is to teach "Jesus Loves Me" to the five youngest, and she brings in cousin Amy Duggar to help.
  • Joseph, Derick, and Ben construct the stage, while Jessa and Jinger make dinner (steak, sweet potato fries, salad, rolls, and asparagus) and the rest of the kids clean the house.
  • When Jim Bob and Michelle arrive home, they are pleasantly surprised by all the work the kids have put into the Duggar Dinner Theater. While Mom and Dad enjoy their dinner, the kids perform music and skits, and Jeremiah recites a touching poem thanking his parents for investing in their kids' lives

    Recap: "Something New"/"Couples' Weekend"

                 19 Kids and Counting: "Something New"

    • The Duggar children are accomplished musicians, but Jim Bob and Michelle admit they are not as musical. To kick off the show, Joy-Anna gives Michelle a violin lesson.
    • The kids hold a secret meeting to plan a dinner theater for Mom and Dad. Jana heads the operation and delegates tasks to her siblings.
    • "We still have some things to figure out...but with a few weeks left, hopefully we will be able to pull off something great," says Jana.
    • Jessa and Jinger head down to Hot Springs, Arkansas, for a cooking lesson with Ben Seewald's sisters, Jessica and Danielle. The girls prepare one of Ben's favorite meals, Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and apple pie with ice cream.
    • Should Ben expect Jessa to prepare a home cooked meal every night? According to Michelle, "expectations ruin relationships."
    • "There may be some TV dinners," says Jim Bob.
    • While cooking, Jessa learns that Ben is "very methodical and systematic" and that he snores. Jessica and Danielle ask Jessa if they should be expecting any "exciting news." Jessa's response? "Ask Ben!"
    • When Ben comes home and tries the meal, he approves.
    • Meanwhile, Jana and Joseph spend time with Josh and Anna in Washington D.C. The crew heads to the mountains to go downhill skiing.
    • Josh and Joseph hit the slopes, while Anna takes Mackynzie and Michael for a ski lesson. Anna forgets to put on her snow gear, so she ends up skiing in a skirt for a couple hours before changing. Later, Josh and Anna head out on a ski date.

    19 Kids and Counting "Couples' Weekend"

    • Jana, Jill, and Jessa attend a birth. Jill acts as the primary midwife under supervision, Jana assists, and Jessa snaps pictures for the couple.
    • Jim Bob and Michelle visit a specialist to evaluate Michelle health and her ability to have more children. Michelle says she is content not having any more children, but if it is God's will to bless her with another child, she wants to know how her body will react.
    • Michelle takes a blood test to determine if her body is going through menopause. Find out the results in next week's episode.
    • Ben and Jessa fly out to Washington D.C., and Jinger goes along as their chaperone.
    • Josh takes Ben to the gym to work out and drills him with questions. "Yah, I'm not going to go easy on him," admits Josh.
    • Later, the crew takes a trolley ride to show Ben the city. "The trip was so much fun," says Jessa. "We really had a great time together."

    Realationship Updates.....

    This weekend, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard attended a wedding shower thrown by the Duggars' church fellowship. They look forward to tying the knot early this summer.
    Jill's sisters have been helping plan her wedding. Will there be another Duggar wedding in the near future? Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are still in a courtship. And we must say, they make a cute couple
     

    "The Big Question" Recap

  • Jim Bob, Jill, and Derick browse through a busy shopping district in Nepal to buy souvenirs. "Everybody's always trying to sell you something," says Jill
  • While buying purses for Jill's sisters, Jim Bob pulls his daughter aside and asks an important question: "How do you think it's going with you-know-who over there?" Jill says she thinks it's going well and that she has really enjoyed getting to know Derick in person.
  • When Jill asks Jim Bob what he thinks of her potential suitor, Jim Bob's answer is vague, although he has already given Derick permission to ask Jill to begin a courtship. "I like him," said Jim Bob. "I think your mom will really like him.
  • Meanwhile, Dericks slips away to buy a heart necklace. 
  • Derick and the Duggars get a lift to the Monkey Temple in a tuk-tuk, a three-wheeled taxi. The ride only costs 20 cents. Jim Bob jokes that if Derick and Jill's relationship continues to progress, they might "have a lot of monkeys" one day.
  • Jill, a student midwife, volunteers at a birthing center in Katmandu, Nepal. She examines a woman who is 36 weeks pregnant and is hearing her baby's heartbeat for the first time. Jill hopes to work as a missionary someday and provide medical care to women and babies.  
  • Meanwhile, Jim Bob conquers his fear and gets a traditional Nepali shave with Derick.
  • Does Jill prefer seeing Derick with or without a beard? She says he looks good both ways but that she likes a little facial hair.
  • Back home in Arkansas, James teaches Michelle how to use a slingshot, and Jinger shows Joy-Anna how to make bread. Joy plans to make bread for the family once a week, which used to be Jinger's jurisdiction. 
  • Over video conferencing, the three travelers catch up with Michelle and a few of the Duggar girls. When Derick asks Jill's family if there is anything he should know about her, Jessa chimes in: "She is one of the more emotional ones in the family. She's very sympathetic, very carrying."
  • The next day, just as Jim Bob and Jill are loading their bags into a taxi and heading for the airport, Derick pulls Jill aside. "If it's alright with you, I'm interested in starting an official courtship," he says. How does Jill respond? "Yeah, that would be awesome. Totally."
  • Derick presents his girlfriend with a heart necklace made of emerald, Jill's birthstone.
  • "Your whole life, we've prayed for a godly man for you, and we had to come 8,000 miles to find him, but here he is," Jim Bob says to his daughter. "You're a great young man," he tells Derick. "God bless your work."
  • Derick looks forward to meeting the rest of the Duggars when he returns home to Arkansas in two-and-a-half months.

    Derick and Jill Share Their Love Story

    Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard had their first phone conversation in March 2013, met in person in November, and were engaged the following March. The couple shares the details of their love story:

    Derick: How I met the girl of my dreams

     

    Well, I'm from Rogers, AR, just about 45 min from where Jill lives, but we had to go 8,000 miles accross the world to meet.  So about two years ago, when I was doing humanitarian work in Nepal, Jill's dad was one of my prayer partners.  We would talk every couple weeks or so to discuss how our work was going and what current prayer needs were.  Jill's dad would also mention periodically the work Jill was doing in her studies as a student midwife and her desire to someday use her skills overseas on the mission field.  Being that we had similar life goals, she caught my attention.

    The first time Jill and I spoke was over the phone in a brief conversation we had back in March 2013.  I continued speaking with Jim Bob (Jill's dad) over the summer, but didn't speak with Jill again until August.  However, during this time I was praying about Jill and asking God for direction in getting to know Jill better.
    The answer to my prayer came in August 2013, just before I left Nepal for a two week trip to Japan.  During a conversation with Jim Bob, he mentioned how he thought Jill and I might get along well,  having similar personalities and direction in life.  He gave me Jill's phone number and we began texting, then emailing, then skyping/ talking on the phone.  Over the next few months we became very grateful for modern technology as we continued to get to know each other better.  Most of our conversations were centered around our values and life goals.
    At the end of November, Jill and her dad got to come to Nepal for a couple weeks.  I had no idea what to expect, but I was excited and prayed that God would give clear direction during this time.  By the end of the trip I felt the Lord directing me to ask Jill to officially begin a courtship relationship.  She agreed and we continued getting to know one another.  It would still be two months before I completed my two year term and would move back home to Arkansas.
    Upon my arrival home (January 2014), I was met by the Duggar clan; this was my first time to meet Jill's family in person.  Over the next few months, I enjoyed spending time getting to know Jill and her family better.

    Jill: How I met the sweetest man in the whole world


    Like Derick stated, we grew up pretty close to each other, but didn’t meet in Arkansas. Christmas 2011, Derick briefly stopped by our house while caroling with a group from his church. Neither of us remembers each other specifically from that time; all I have is a vague memory of the group of people who came. Not long after this, Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal. He would call my dad regularly and give updates on how his work was going there and then they’d pray together.As my dad got to know Derick he was really impressed with his Godly character. He started telling me about Derick and also told Derick about me! I listened in on a few phone conversations with my dad without Derick knowing I was doing so.

    After I kept hearing good things about this guy I decided I’d look him up on my own, so I Googled him and got a little glimpse from his social media outlets. I thought it was really neat how we had similar life goals and all, so I prayed about him for a little while, but then I prayed that God would allow me to not think seriously about any guys until it was His timing to begin a relationship and “the one”. I didn’t really think about this prayer again until later.
    In March of 2013, Derick called my dad to give him an update and pray together and I happened to walk in the room. Unlike the other times when I had just listened in, this time my dad told Derick I had just come in the room and asked him to tell me a little bit about himself. We talked briefly that evening, however in the months following I didn’t think much about him.
    In August of that same year, my dad was on the phone with Derick one evening and gave him my number. He told Derick that he thought we may hit it off and encouraged him to group text (with my parents), or call me if he wanted to. What I didn’t know at the time was that this was a direct answer to Derick’s prayer! He had been praying over the entire summer about when/if he should contact my dad to begin a relationship with me and was asking God to show him clearly! Wow! God is good!

    I was super excited to text Derick back and forth, and then we were able to Skype. Our first call lasted 5.5 hrs and I asked him a ton of questions! I jokingly say it was “love at first Skype”! It really helped me feel secure to know that Derick and my dad had already got to know each other and that my dad admired him. During Derick’s time in Nepal, he was 10hrs and 45 min ahead of us so we would try to get in talk time when it would work best for both our schedules. And then there were other times when he was trekking in the Himalayan mountains for days at a time without any communication.
      

    Although the distance was hard, we are grateful that we were able to really work on developing good communication, something that’s an important part in marriage. Also, during this time I was able to hang out with Derick’s family, visit his church, and even went to his house and rode in his car a couple times!

    In November, my dad and I were able to fly to Nepal and spend two weeks with Derick! During our trip, Derick asked me if he and I could begin getting to know each other better in a courtship relationship; I happily agreed! I’d spent much time reading the bible, praying and getting wise counsel, before saying “yes.”
    The more I spent time with him and observed his integrity, sweet spirit and love for God and service to others, the more I fell in love with him! Our goals align perfectly with how we see God leading us and we both feel we can serve Him better together than separate!

    Well, my dad and I went home and over the next 60 days I cried a lot of tears; I missed him so much! Finally, in January of this year (2014) Derick returned home and was able to meet my entire family!
    Derick asked my dad for permission to marry me at the end of February and then asked me on March 29th! I said, “yes, totally!”

    We look forward to seeing where God will lead us and are enjoying this amazing season of life together!
