The Duggar family is hitting the road. Following news that Jessa and Ben Seewald are prepping to go on tour this fall, it is now being reported that several other members of the “19 Kids and Counting” clan are also planning to hit the open road in the near future.
The Duggar Family Blog reports that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s eldest daughter, Jana Duggar, will be making a public appearance this month. But Jana, 25, won’t be alone on her outing, Michelle, 48, and her 21-year-old daughter Jinger will also be accompanying her. Jana and Jinger's appearance is their first since TLC’s cancellation of their family's reality series “19 Kids and Counting” and news of their brother Josh Duggar’s child molestation scandal.
So, when and where can “19 Kids and Counting” fans catch a glimpse of the Duggar ladies? According to the blog, the family will be making an appearance at COMMIT Mother/Daughter Conference at Verity University in Indianapolis, Indiana, Aug. 19-22. The conference aims to “to motivate young ladies and their moms to choose to seek God first” and is designed for females aged 12-17 years.
The conference’s website is touting Jana and Jinger as “authors and speakers.” As fans will remember, the girls released their book “Growing up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships” in 2014. “The Duggar girls will share from their hearts about their relationship as sisters in a family of 19 children, the importance of communication and openness with their parents, and about their most important relationship of all—their relationship with Jesus,” reads the site’s announcement.
For fans looking to attend, be advised that participants are being asked to “dress modestly” for the event. Registration ends Aug. 11.

If you’re unable to catch up with Michelle, Jana and Jinger this month, Jessa and her husband Ben will be stopping at several U.S. cities in the coming weeks, appearing as special guests at Southern Women’s Shows events. The couple’s first stop will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Aug. 29. Their tour will wrap in Jacksonville, Florida, on Oct. 17.
Whle it’s unclear if Jana, Michelle and Jinger plan to interact with fans during their appearance, Jessa, 22, and Ben, 20, will be giving their viewers some face time. The convention announced last month that attendees are permitted to get autographs and photos with the parents-to-be, as well as ask Jessa about “her wedding details, life as a newlywed, her pregnancy and how she is preparing to be a first time mom.”
