Anna Duggar took to Instagram Wednesday night to share a new family routine. She and her family are practicing social-distancing. So, while the coronavirus pandemic is going on, Anna and her kids are engaging in more prayer. As Anna writes, “These times that we are living in right now certainly have our ‘normal’ routines turned upside down, and inside out.”
Then, Anna talks about the new idea her family is using. She says, “At the start of this pandemic we took an old decorative jar and filled it with slips of paper. 📝On each paper we wrote different people groups to pray for during this uncertain season. Some of the people we thought to pray for are the elderly, doctors, nurses, first responders, those without work, children while out of school and transitioning to school at home, and on the list goes! 👵🏼👷🏻♂️👩🏻⚕️👧🏼”
In her social media post, Anna includes several pictures of her kids. A couple of the pictures feature the kids praying. In a couple of the photos, they’re writing down their prayer ideas. Anna says that they each choose a piece of paper in the morning and in the evening. Then, they pray for the person on the paper.
Anna concludes, “Though our hands are limited, our hearts are with each of you and we are praying for those affected.”

Happy Palm Sunday — Hosanna!🌿🐴 Amid all the changes of the coronavirus pandemic it felt good to dress up and get ready for church! Even though we livestreamed the service it felt a little more normal to be “dressed for church” 💒 • This got me thinking…is anyone else planning to wear their #Easter outfits next Sunday and livestream a church service? 👔👗📺 • During the #HolyWeek let’s make a meaningful time as we remember Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. May we celebrate Jesus’ sacrificial love for us and share it with others! 🤍 ✝️ • • • • #littleduggars #mackynzie #michael #marcus #meredith #mason #maryella #duggar #palmsunday
For this reason, fans have even looked to her for advice before, especially when it comes to kids. It’s safe to say that Anna knows a lot when it comes to raising kids. She and her husband Josh have six kids together. Maryella, the youngest, is just four months old. The oldest, Mackynzie, is ten years old.
