Jill Duggar shows support for sister Jinger’s tell-all book ahead of big release amid feud with parents Jim Bob & Michelle
JILL Duggar has sided with her sister by making fans count down to Jinger’s new book.
The ex-TLC star’s revelation aims to expose the extreme religious beliefs of her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle.
Jill, 31, smiled while holding up a printed copy of Jinger’s book, which she can read before fans do.
“Look what came in!” Jill told the camera in her Instagram video on Saturday how she held up a printed copy of Jinger’s book.
The 29-year-old’s telltale memoir, Becoming Free Indeed, is out January 31.
“Thanks Jinge for sending me a copy of Becoming Free Indeed!” exclaimed Jill, doing a little free promo for her sister.
Jinger re-shared the Instagram Story video and sweetly wrote, “Yay so happy it arrived! I love you so much Jill.”
Jill showed off her new nose ring, blonde hair and tie-dye t-shirt after recently closing the book on all the rumors that she and Jinger aren’t close as they now live far apart.
After Counting On alum Jinger posted on Instagram about a new interview she did with People, Jill was the only one of her 18 siblings to leave a comment.
“Proud of you [and Jeremy as I’m sure you continue to support each other] how you have processed so much, I’m sure, and yet still clinging to each other and to Jesus!” she wrote at the time.

“Walking straight and narrow as God leads you is harder than going all the way one way or the other!”
However, some fans scratched their heads at Jill’s comment.
Many have questioned if the two still have a close relationship as Jinger now resides in California while Jill is in Oklahoma.
But Jill appeared to smack back at the estrangement speculation with a new comment below Jinger’s latest post.
The latter again promoted her new book and shared a video of herself getting her hair and makeup done for a photoshoot.
“Proud of you sis!” Jill wrote in response, adding a heart emoji.
Jinger, Jim Bob and Michelle’s sixth child, left the church in 2017 and has since described its teachings as “cult-like.”
Jinger’s upcoming book aims to shed new light on the sisters’ upbringing.
Speaking to People, the author said, “The teaching I was raised under was harmful, it was harmful and there are lasting effects.”
Jinger and her 18 siblings were raised under the teachings of the Institute in Basic Life Principles, a Christian organization founded by disgraced Rev. Bill Gothard.
Founder Bill, 88, led the church until 2014, when more than 30 women accused him of sexual harassment and harassment for decades.
Both Jill and Jinger have distanced themselves from their parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, in recent years.
The sisters have on many occasions flouted their father’s dress code, which forbids women to wear short skirts or jeans.
Jinger and her husband Jeremy Vuolo have distanced themselves from the Duggars in recent years.
Jinger relocated from her family home in Arkansas to Los Angeles, where she and Jeremy live with their two children, Felicity, four, and Evie, two.
Meanwhile, her parents have been largely supportive of their controversial son Josh throughout his sentence on child pornography charges.
