The announcement was made today (Wednesday, July 25), on the Duggar family website. The family seems to be very happy about it and the statement said they were "thrilled to announce the engagement."

John David's new fiance has a 'deep love for the Lord'

John David chose the right person to be his wife by the looks of it.

The Duggar Family announcement described her as having "a deep love for the Lord." It went on to say that she's a lovely young woman, full of tenderness and compassion." It maybe wasn't necessary to add that the family loves weddings, but they did anyway, writing, "We love weddings in this family and can’t wait for this next one!"

The wedding probably won't be too far off either, as according to People, the couple said, "Now we need to start thinking about a wedding!” They added, "Wow! We are engaged! This feels even more real than before! It was a special moment to share together." The Duggars seldom hang about once the decision is made to get married, but the courtship takes time. That's so they are sure they really want to stay together. They are also mindful of God's direction in their lives.
