Even with 6 months to go until their baby’s arrival, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are already preparing for his or her arrival. They are even working on a ‘scripture board’ to help with the labor and birth!
Jill Duggar, 23, is so excited to be a mom it seems to be all she can think about. In a recent Instagram photo, the expectant mom and her husband, Derick Dillard, 25, are hard at work getting ready for the day their little one finally arrives. Of course, they are getting some help from the big man himself — God!
Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard Prepare For Baby’s Arrival With Bible Verses
While most expectant parents back an overnight bag and work on their registry before the baby arrives, Jill and Derick are taking a much different approach.
On Sunday, Sept. 28, Jill shared an Instagram photo collage that revealed she and Derick were writing some of their favorite bible verses down for a special project.
“Writing out bible verses for encouragement during pregnancy, labor and delivery!” Jill captioned the collage, including the hashtag “#scriptureboard.”
It sounds like Jill and Derick took the idea of a “vision” board and put their own twist on it. That scripture board will be something they can look at any time, day or night, and find the strength they need to get through all of the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and a new baby.
While other couples may not be as religious as Jill and Derick are, this is definitely a great idea for future parents — you can use any sort of inspiration quotes whether they be from books, movies, celebrities, and so much more!
Jill Has Been Working On Her ‘Scripture Board’ For A While
Though she did not tell us at the time what she was up to, Jill previously shared some pieces of her scripture board on Instagram.
On Sept. 17, Jill shared another photo collage that revealed she had written a bunch of her favorite bible quotes onto paper as she found inspiration from the view of the church where she and Derick married, Cross Church.
“Morning devotions with a beautiful view of the crosses!” the mom-to-be wrote.
It’s no secret that Jill has always been the crafty one in the Duggar family, as she often wrangled her 17 younger siblings to work on fun projects in the house.
