In a new interview with Fox News, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo promoted their book, The Hope We Hold. In this interview, they talked about a little bit of everything, from the hardest moments in their lives to their plans for the future.
One of the moments they touched on is the death of Jinger’s grandmother, Mary Duggar. Mary was Jim Bob Duggar’s mother. Sadly, she passed away unexpectedly. She was found in the pool at her Arkansas home. Her death was ruled an accidental drowning. She was 78 years old at the time of her death in 2019.
Mary’s passing was somewhat unexpected because she was overall in good health. The coroner stated that she had a couple of health issues, but the family said that she was fairly healthy. So, they didn’t see this coming so soon.
What does Jinger Duggar have to say about her grandma’s death?
During the interview, Jinger was asked how her faith helps her through the tough times in her life. She replied, “It’s definitely the foundation of my life. Whatever circumstance I’m going through, I filter everything through God’s word. When I walked through the loss of my grandma, who I love dearly, at that moment when I got the call from my mom, that’s just how I handled that. It was so tough, but I knew that God was in control. He had taken my grandma home to be with him. Knowing that brought me peace.”
Then, she continued, “But in those moments, I see that God carries me through and that is when the rubber really meets the road. You see, it’s not just talking about God and having this understanding from the Bible that’s on paper. You need to know it’s real. You need to feel and see the reality of Christ’s love. He gives us love in those difficult circumstances even if we don’t see it at that moment. But it’s there. I have hope because of Christ. Even with my circumstances, when the world’s turned upside down, everything’s seemingly out of control – there is such peace in my heart.”
Fans are loving Jinger and Jeremy’s book already, and they’re glad they have this opportunity to “get to know” them better in this way. Their book features many of the moments they’ve gone through in their lives, both as a couple and on their own. They hope their book inspires others to have faith in God.
