This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But I think it’s the most important.
I’ve written a book called “Becoming Free Indeed.” This is a book about me and my spiritual journey, a journey of disentangling truth from lies. In it, I share stories from my life—stories that nobody saw while the TV cameras were rolling: stories of fear and uncertainty but also of discovery and hope.

    This is so great! It is so weird to me when people hold so tightly to things that are not in the Bible. I guess we as human beings are so prone to wanting to follow some type of law and rely on our own efforts even when Jesus says we can’t. I think His grace and mercy isn’t comforting to some Christians! If we all accepted that even our best efforts are like filthy rags to God, maybe we would care less about wearing jeans vs skirts, certain words and phrases we say to appear righteous, and any of the other things that just distract us from Jesus. As He says, His yoke is easy and his burden is light. Some Christians feel better following a heavy burden they create. Jesus wants our hearts and from there He will do a work in us. I am so grateful that you came out of wrong teaching and stayed a follower of Jesus, Jinger! I came out of Catholicism and am a born again Christian ☺️

      Well said @VickyCash. Very well said. God bless you.

    • Vicky Cash says:

      @TheNiwotmom We, as individuals who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, are His church, not any building, or religion. We are to hear Him through the Holy Spirit first and foremost above any set of rules, or regulations, taught by a church or any other religious group. While pastors teach their understanding of the Bible, it is our responsibility to read our Bible and see what is true and what is not. Meeting together as believers provides a place for edification and fellowship, but does not replace our need to put Jesus first and foremost in our lives for leading, teaching, and believing.

    • TheNiwotmom says:

      There are many things not written in the bible, because that’s not possible. God didn’t put everything into the bible, because there’s not enough paper in the world to fill it. Jesus didn’t come to earth to give us a book, He came to give us His church.

    As a fellow refugee from toxic religion I think this was a pretty brave thing to do. As a communications person I feel like this was a very, very hard statement for her to make based on the non-verbals. Good luck Jinger. I am a 60 year old and I am still detangling. I don’t know if this is helpful to others or not but what I’ve come to understand is that we are ALL broken in one way or another……….that’s why we can all use as much grace as possible. Prayers to you and your family

    • Kathryn Miller says:

      This was a major step for her. I am indeed proud of why and what she did. 🙏

    • Stephanie Boncuk says:

      I’m 65 and still working on things the mormons teach. They added the Book of Mormon to the Bible. Your not suppose to add to the Bible.. we need to ask god to show us the truth and read the Bible for yourself and ask god to help you. And he will.

      @Tammy H Amen 🙏

    • Tammy H says:

      Amen. We all needs God’s Grace. Salvation is a free gift to anyone that’s willing to accept it, repent and follow Christ. I was telling my 13 yr old. The thief on the Cross saw his need for a Savior. It’s a simple message that man can add to unnecessarily. God Bless all of us with His Grace while on this road to having ultimate freedom in Christ!!! Amen

    I knew eventually Duggar kids’ eyes would be opened as they reached adulthood and got to see an unfiltered version of life beyond the fortress their parents and Gothard created, and I was pretty sure years and years ago that Jinger would be one of the first to throw off the chains and reject that lifestyle.

    • Barbara Creel says:

      @Tutt Tutt along with Janna. I don’t believe she will ever break free until her parents have passed on. She has been a faithful workhorse, keeps her mouth shut and do as she is told and made to feel as if she have a to give up her entire life to them

    • Lynn S says:

      @MrsDarcyfans Yes, Jill was the first one.

    • Haley Phipps says:

      @Potato5115 Jinger and Jeremy and Jill and Derick are NOT Calvinist. They claim to be Baptist/non-denominational.

    • Kimberly D says:

      I remember there was a Free Jinger website/blog some years back while the show was still airing. A lot people knew she would be the one to integrate into society the best. I’m glad she didn’t loose her faith. She strengthened it. Congratulations to her.

    • Lemelia Johnson Bonner says:

      @Tutt Tutt I agree. I think that’s probably because Ben was so young when she married him that he became financially dependent on Jim Bob for years and didn’t feel like he could rock the boat. It’ll be interesting to see if that changes now that he’s graduated and pastoring his own church.

  4. Dyan Euler says:

    I myself can not wait to read your book. I have watched you grow up on tv and I am enjoying seeing parts of your life as a adult I pray with you this book reaches many who have turned from God and bring many to God. You are a amazing woman. God bless you ,Jeremy and your girls

  5. Ada Roberts says:

    Everything that she does is tasteful, classy & genuine. I’m a big fan!

  6. Geraldine says:

    Jinger, as a 55 year old woman, I am still detangling myself from the upbringing I had in ultra fundamentalism. Like you, I still have strong faith, but am still trying to accept God’s Grace. Your book and your journey is more important than you know. I wish I had done so when my children were young like yours—it would have made me a more grace filled mother.

    • Rebekah Petrocelli says:

      I am 53, and Geraldine wrote beautifully what I had on my heart as I watched. Jinger, I am so proud of you. Thank you for being brave enough to share, so others can find freedom too. ❤

  7. wickedbigpuffeduphai says:

    I’m crying, crying, crying. Thank you SO much JInger for doing this. For standing. For the courage to break free and find the true Gospel. This will help so many.

    • Fran Bentley says:

      Hi Jinger, can you tell me where I can get a copy to Europe particularly Ireland? Thanks Francesca

    • Linda Williams says:

      I’d like to know Genger, how Bill Gathered Seminars hurt you?. When I first got saved. I didnt have Christian’s around me. So when I heards this man only taught the principles of God. I went👍. I was brought a catholic. I went for fours years . Maybe God protected me. Like he did and still does👍😊. Even before I was saved. Against all false teaching. Like the Jehovah Witnesses, take a trip on Acid to fine god, A false god👍. So once again how did this ministry effect you ? Please reply. 👍😊❤🙏🙏🙏.

  8. Mizzy Mel says:

    WOW. I can’t wait to read this book. It’s clear how Jesus has remained steadfast beside you Jinger!❤️

  9. discovr4me says:

    Pure class. She’s broken free. I’m so happy for her.

    • Crucial Taunt says:

      @Anon Omus I don’t expect Jinger to ever not be a conservative Christian and I have no problem with that. But there are some messed up issues with Jeremy’s sect that follows John Macarthur. I think Jill’s deconstruction is a bit healthier.

    • Anon Omus says:

      @Jaime Clark don’t bother arguing. Some people act like their change isn’t valid unless they instantly do a 180 and turn into full-blown left-wing activists. They don’t seem to realize that *yes,* you can be religious without all the toxic stuff attached it.

    • Jaime Clark says:

      @Kimnicpat yes she is free her husband isn’t controlling he lets her be who she wants to be and has so many opportunities that she never had and let’s her make her own decisions Jeremy is an incredible husband who encourages her to follow her dreams

    • The Sachs Way of Life says:

      @Kimnicpat forever proving women are subservient to man!

    • Kimnicpat says:

      No she hasn’t. She’s exchanged the religion of her father for the religion of her husband. Jinger isn’t free.

  10. Sarah Strand says:

    This made me cry tears of pride and joy. I’ve waited over 10 years for this and always had a strong feeling it would be you, out of all of your siblings, who delivered it.

    • Lindsey Sanders says:

      One other person has done the same, just in a different way. Everyone has their own journey to walk with God.
