Many have asked for an update on the courting couple. They have hadseveral visits together and have spent lots of time writing, sending care packages, and thinking of each other! Brandon is super creative; when a package comes, it’s usually filled with many extra special touches that show his talent and his tender heart: gifts wrapped with ribbons and flowers, scrolls with sweet messages, artwork, DVDs with photos and songs written to celebrate their times together…all so very sentimental and touching! This week Brandon celebrates his 25th birthday, so “Happy birthday” to a wonderful, Godly young man that has won our daughter’s heart!
Lovely words from miss whitney.

It’s just been weeks since Jessa Duggar accepted Ben Seewald’s marriage proposal – and started holding hands! – but the couple tell PEOPLE they are ready to wed.
"We have most of our planning done," Seewald, 19, tells PEOPLE. "When you’re planning a wedding, you can make it complicated or make it simple, and we are trying to make ours simple. There are some things that have to be done right before the wedding, but for the most part, we’re ready."
The stars of TLC’s hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting, which airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m., will walk down the aisle on Nov. 1 – less than two months from now.
"We have the bridal party picked and the colors are done," says Jessa, 21. "The bridesmaids dresses are selected."
And has the bride managed to find something for herself to wear?
"I picked out my wedding dress a couple of days ago," she says. "I went with the second dress I tried on – I love it."
Jessa, the third daughter of 19 children born to Jim Bob, 49, and Michelle Duggar, 47, has shared her courtship journey to Seewald, who is the oldest of 7 children.
The couple, who got engaged Aug. 14, have been open about their Christian beliefs, their thoughts on relationships and their own desire to have a big family. (Jessa’s older sister, Jill, and her husband Derick recently revealed her pregnancy. The two were married June 21.)
At the beginning of this season’s 19 Kids & Counting, it was revealed Seewald had moved in to the Duggar home – making wedding planning a whole lot easier.
"When he is doing his studies at night, I sit at my laptop beside him, planning the wedding," Jessa says. Ben is currently a sophomore in college, majoring in political science.
The couple are also spending time working out together.
"We do a lot of weight lifting and cardio together, trying to stay fit," Seewald says. "Some of the other kids, like Joy and Jason, sometimes join in. We have a little workout club going."
Date nights – like the one in this clip of the show’s Tuesday episode – are also a lot easier now that they’re both in the same place. Jessa and Seewald, who waited to hold hands until their engagement and are saving their first kiss for their wedding day, take chaperones along with them so they are not alone. Usually, their chaperone is one of Jessa’s many siblings.
"We don’t have trouble finding chaperones," says Jessa. "If we’re going out to a restaurant, we make sure they get a special dessert and have a fun time, too. We take good care of them."

Time is the most valuable asset that we have, and it always seems to be so scarce. We realize that we have to “make” time for the things that are of greatest priority, and let the things that are of less importance fade away. Erin and I have been waiting for a time where we could get away and be free from the busyness of everyday life. The Lord worked it out that we could spend some time in the sunny state of Florida. Erin knew of a place in the panhandle that was private, little known, and absolutely gorgeous…and she was right! We have been enjoying our time to the fullest by just being together.
Talking is one of our highlight’s. Though it may sound super simple, we have found that communication is a key in staying close in our relationship. It’s amazes me how the little things in life can distract us from having meaningful communication with each other.
This place is truly beautiful. One of our favorite things has been to sit along the beach and watch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico…to smell the fragrant salty air, and watch as the last traces of sunlight reflect off of the surf, slipping into twilight. The sounds of the waves rolling onto the white, sandy beaches and the cries of the seagulls, create a very peaceful atmosphere. We could’t be happier sitting there together.
This time alone has given us a renewed love for each other, taught us more about each other, given us a vision for the months to come.
Psalm 105:4 “Seek the Lord, and His strength: seek His face evermore.”

Is it just me or are they looking awkward to be holding hands etc. Not very romantic looking pictures compared to Jill’s engagement pictures.
