Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have had a whirlwind time lately, with getting engaged, married, and now expecting their first child. The couple took time to speak with The Christian Post about their plans for the future and what they want to pass on to their child.
They broke the news last week that they were expecting their first child just weeks after exchanging vows in front of friends and family. Both shared their excitement and overwhelming joy at learning of the pregnancy. Jill and Derick told CP what they hoped for their children.
"Well, ultimately, we want to be an example for them. For a daughter, I want to show her how a man should treat her, just like Jill's dad did for her," Derick said. "And just be the best dad I can be to both my sons and daughters and really purpose to teach them the Word of God early on and pray that they will come to the Lord early in life. And helping them be open, not afraid to come to us about anything." more >>

Ken Ham's Answers in Genesis organization has hit back against accusations by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson that many Christians find creationist beliefs to be "crazy," and that Ham was relatively unknown until his public debate with Bill Nye the Science Guy in February.
"Tyson's assertion that no one had heard of Ken Ham before Bill Nye came along is laughable. Answers in Genesis has a long track record as a world-recognized creation ministry, reaching people around the world through the website, social media, highly qualified speakers, books and DVDs, radio programs, magazines, and so forth," AiG's Elizabeth Mitchell wrote on Saturday.
"The Nye-Ham debate did of course attract a lot of attention. In fact, according to Associated Press writer Dylan Lovan, Bill Nye reported he was surprised at the interest in the debate, as it was so much greater than the interest ordinarily shown in his college campus appearances," it added. more >>
