But Jill’s cousin Amy Duggar, 36, and her mother Deanna, 61, the niece and sister of her father Jim Bob, 58, have stepped forward to show their support.

Amy liked her Instagram profile on Tuesday to share a black-and-white selfie with the newly published author.

The cousins ​​smiled side by side, their hair pulled back in buns, wearing T-shirts and sunglasses.

The former TV personality captioned the post: “May God bless the people who read your heart! You’re going to help so many hurting people, and that’s what it’s all about.”

“I understand that you have to be careful when it comes to trust. We talked about it and it’s still so difficult considering everything we’ve been through, but I’m so glad God gave us strength through it all.”

Amy continued: “I’ve said it so many times and it’s still so true, I love how you and @derickdillard Stand for the truth! God goes before you both! I’m cheering you on all the time! Love, Ames.

The post received nearly 16,000 likes as fans loved seeing the TLC alum support Jill’s new memoir.

To the surprise of many, Jim Bob’s sister and Amy’s mother Deanna took to the comments section to offer their own words of praise.

“I love who you are, Amy! My precious daughter! God moves!!! and I believe your time has come to share your story and everything that makes you who you are!!!”

In a separate comment specifically for Jill, she wrote: “I am very, very proud of Jill and Derick!! I pray your book becomes a big bestseller!!!”

Devastating memoir

The 32-year-old released her memoir “Counting the Cost,” which she co-wrote with her husband Derick Dillard, 34, on Tuesday.

Although writing a book is an impressive feat, her parents and the majority of her siblings showed no support on social media.

The former reality star didn’t hold back when describing her “cult” upbringing in her memoir Counting the Cost.

At one point in the book, Jill discussed the strict dress code instituted by her parents, Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle, 56, that was expected of her and her 18 siblings.

The “Counting On” alum recalled a conversation with her mother about the appropriate clothing women should wear so as not to “arouse sexual desires” in men.

“When women wear tight or revealing clothing that exposes certain parts of their skin between their collarbones and knees, it turns men on and can arouse sensual desires,” Jill recalled her mother saying.

“It can cause them to have bad thoughts. When girls do this to men, they are cheating on them. This is not good and can lead them to sin.”

Jill eventually disobeyed her parents’ dress code when she married her husband Derick and left the Institute of Basic Life Principles – the controversial Christian organization founded by disgraced pastor Bill Gothard.

The TLC alum referred to the church as a “cult” throughout her book and pointed out that its teachings were not as “clear” as she once thought.


Her sister Jinger, 29, has also been vocal about leaving IBLP, expressing her different views on what she was taught as a child.

In addition to Jill’s big day on Tuesday, Jinger appeared on The Tamron Hall Show to talk about her own book, “Becoming Free Indeed.”

Since Jill’s book was just published, it was also a topic of discussion in the interview.

The Counting On star spoke about her relationship with her parents, which she described as “complicated”.

Jinger also said that their relationship since the release of her book is “not perfect or ideal.”

She admitted that family problems can “tear you to the core.”

Finally, she was asked about her thoughts on Jill and her thoughts on the book release.
