In her new book, The Hope We Hold, Jinger Duggar Vuolo got pretty honest with her readers. She and her husband Jeremy released the book about a month ago, and fans are already getting into it and reading all about the couple’s love story.
One topic discussed in the book is Jinger’s faith. As she got married and moved out of her parents’ home, she had a chance to examine her family’s strict religious beliefs for the first time. She explains that she thought about the “standards that I took as givens.”
Counting On fans know about the Duggar family’s modesty rules and that the girls are expected to wear skirts or dresses. Now, Jinger has branched out and wears jeans, tank tops, and everything in between. This goes against her family’s standards for modesty. In the book, she writes, “I never really questioned it. Modesty was a huge topic in our house, and we believed that skirts instead of pants was a central part of being modest.”
When she moved out and had an opportunity to ask those questions, she wanted to learn about modesty herself. She reveals, “I never found a passage specifically forbidding women from wearing pants.”
The TLC star adds that this wasn’t easy for her. She says she “struggled with believing something that was different from my family.”
What else do Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo talk about in their book?
The message of their book is hope no matter what is happening in their lives. The description reads, “In The Hope We Hold, Jeremy and Jinger Vuolo share the highs and lows of their love story. They open up about the early days of getting to know one another, their long-distance relationship, and the many sleepless nights of their time as new parents. But throughout all their stories, just below the surface, weaving together every triumph and trial of their lives, is the silver thread of hope.”
They don’t shy away from the sad moments in their lives together. They want to give their fans a real look at who they are. So far, the book has received mixed reviews. Some feel that it doesn’t contain very much new information about the couple and call it a “money grab.” Others are loving getting to be a part of Jinger and Jeremy’s life in this way.
