I didn’t know badminton 🏸 could make me break a sweat... until I played Lauren!
There are not enough words to express what you mean to me and how much I love you! You are the best gift God has given to me. Happy Birthday, Lauren! 🎈🎁🎂 I will love and cherish you all the days of your life. ❤️ -Your man, Si
Happiness is anywhere with you by my side.

Happy Resurrection Sunday! 💐
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” 1 Peter 1:3
I feel like the most blessed guy on earth 🌎... Lauren said YES! God definitely opened our eyes in his perfect timing to show us how we complete each other. The more time I spend with Lauren the more I realize how I can't live without her. There's no one else I'd rather spend my days and grow old with! #engaged #weddingplanningbegins
Anyone who knows me knows that I’ve always been a talker. ☺️ But now I love being a listener, too. ❤️ #facetimewiththebest
No place I’d rather be. #withyou
I’m really enjoying the beauty in New Zealand. 😍 Oh, and the landscape is pretty nice too I guess. 😉 #mygirl #lauren
On second thought, it is a little warm out to be wearing a 3-piece suit! #silverdollarcity

Josiah's parent's, Jim Bob and Michelle, also expressed how thrilled they were to have Lauren join their family.
"God has richly blessed us by adding Lauren to our family. We know He has great plans for them and we are overjoyed that He has brought them together," they expressed. "Thank you to all for prayers and support as Josiah and Lauren start their journey together!"
ET reported in early January that Josiah was courting Lauren after he asked her to take their "friendship to courtship" while she was hanging out with some of his siblings. "I was very shocked when he came by, I wasn't thinking he was supposed to be there because it's a girls' night out,'" Lauren explained at the time. "We're excited about sharing our journey on Counting On." The twosome then got engaged in early March.
I love my amazing bride! Wonderful day together with my bestie! 😘 @jessaseewald

Cracking up over this one! 😂We were surprised to find out that #BabySeewald was already born last week! Jessa says to tell y'all that she was relieved to find out that all that labor and delivery is already behind her. 😄 Oh, and she said that she really likes the cover picture, commenting "I never imagined I'd have my pre-baby body back so soon!" 😊😜
Haha! We both had a good laugh over this!
