Jessa Duggar Seewald has spoken about how she is doing and how she is taking the drama following her brother Josh Duggar's two shocking scandals that were revealed in three months.

Josh Duggar has recently admitted that he molested five children in his teenage years, including Jill and Jessa, and was also involved in the Ashley Madison leak, resulting to his confession of cheating on his wife through the website and another confession that he was previously a porn addict.

In an interview with People, former "19 Kids and Counting" reality star said, "You just have to keep your focus and trust God."

The 22-year-old said, while promoting her book "Growing Up Duggar: It's all About Relationships" at the Southern Women's Show in Charlotte, North Carolina, that she is casting her attention on her faith as her family struggles through their difficult times.

Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald have also addressed their seemingly "easy" reactions toward media as their family continues to battle the fury and criticism not only from the media but from the public, as well.

In a Q&A session, Ben, 20, said, "You have to stay true to yourself and your foundation."

While Jessa and Jill (Duggar) Dillard have come out as among Josh's victims of childhood molestation in an interview with Megan Kelly two months back, the two have also been the most supportive in their brother's journey.

When asked if the couple were interested in raising their family for the world to see, Ben said, "We live a peaceful, quiet life, but I wouldn't rule out if people were interested in our family."

TLC has ended all hopes for a comeback on the Duggar family's hit series, but the execs have also clarified earlier that they are not closing doors on future projects.

To justify the execs' statement, Jessa will be seen on screen once again by Sunday as she appears alongside Jill in a feature by TLC that focuses on child sex abuse.

The couple are also preparing for the coming of their first child, due on their first wedding anniversary, this November.
