Before saying "I do," Jill Duggar and now-husband Derick Dillard went through premarital counseling with her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle.
"The four of us meet on a weekly basis for counseling," Michelle explained in the most recent episode of "19 Kids and Counting." "I believe it is our responsibility to equip our children to be prepared for that next step in life of marriage."
It's no secret that the Duggar parents are thoroughly involved in their children's relationships; they see every text message exchange and even participate in the texts as well, and they thoroughly vet their children's suitors before the children even meet them. Jim Bob was the one to arrange the meeting between daughters Jill and Jessa and their husbands. more >>

Former "Hercules" star Kevin Sorbo has spoken out about his career and life in Hollywood, noting that if you are a conservative Christian, "you will get attacked."
"I think being a conservative in Hollywood and being a Christian in Hollywood, you get attacked," he told CNSNews. "It's so strange to me that the media sits there and protects the things that they protect, or they ignore the things that they ignore, and they go after stories like global warming—like that's more important than what's going on in the world right now with these terrorists."
Sorbo starred in the hit film "God's Not Dead" and can be seen in "Let the Lion Roar," where he portrays the legendary Protestant preacher and theologian John Calvin. Sorbo has been rather outspoken about his faith in recent years and is dedicated to spreading the Christian message of goodness and salvation rather than anything else. more >>
