Jessa Duggar is Courting………but, Who is Ben Seewald?

Ok, so by now, all of the Duggar fans should know that dear ‘Jessa Blessa’ is in a courtship relationship………Praise God!  We also know that many of our questions will be answered about this union on the 19 Kids and Counting season premiere, which airs tonight.  Even so, I just had to do a little digging of my own to see who this young man is…….Mr. Ben Seewald……and to try and determine his character.

First off, let me just say how happy I am for them.  Anyone who has read my blog, knows how much I love the Duggars, and I am so thankful that one of the daughters has found her mate, and that she is going to honor God in the pre-engagement process.   When I wrote a post about the oldest Duggar girls and my own children entitled ‘Will Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger Duggar Marry?……Will MY Children Marry?……..Yes, If It Is God’s Will!’,  I wondered which of the girls would go first.   (you can read that post here:  http://raisingservantsofchrist.com/2013/05/16/will-jana-jill-jessa-and-jinger-duggar-marry-will-my-children-marry-yes-if-it-is-gods-will/

So now that we know it’s Jessa, Duggar fans who have watched her grow into the beautiful young lady that she is, are interested in the man who has claimed her heart.  Some of the questions that I myself am curious about are:  How did he meet Jessa?  Is he a Christian, is he a homeschooler, does he come from a large family, does he want lots of children, where will they live, how will they support themselves……the list could go on and on.  I do not have all of the answers to these questions, but here is what I have found out from various articles and sources:

Affordable Windshield Repair of Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Owned and operated by Ben Seewall.

Ben lives in Hot springs, Arkansas, which is about 3 hours and 45 minutes away from the Duggars hometown of Tontitown, Arkansas.  It has been said that he and Jessa met at church, which may or may not be the Duggars home church.  He owns and operates a windshield repair business called ‘Affordable Windshield Repair’, and he also works at Diamante Country Club.  His business motto is, “Giving you clearer vision on the roads of life – 1 chip repair at a time.”

Return of the King, Lord of the Rings.......Love these movies!

Return of the King, Lord of the Rings…….Love these movies!

According to the pictures he has posted on Facebook, he is indeed a Christian.  In fact, he paired two of my favorite things……..Christ and Lord of the Rings……..he’s definitely A-Okay in my book!   One such picture is of a battle scene from ‘Return of the King’, which he posted along with these words:

“Fight the good fight of faith” (1 Timothy 6:12) As Christians, we are in a war against our former master, Satan and his forces of evil. It is not necessarily a physical war, “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;)” (2 Corinthians 10:4) Each day, the world, our own flesh, and the Devil seek to bring us down and defeat us. Let us remember always, that though they may wound us, and that though it may seem hopeless, that ” …whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5:4)

Good words to hear, and good values to live by……..and if he does lives his life this way, then Jessa has been blessed indeed.

In fact, Jim Bob stated in an article from People Magazine, “He’s the first one she has shown interest in that has a spiritual focus and legitimate calling about ministry work,” he says. “When a guy is pursing your daughter, you want to check him out and see if there are any red flags and with Ben, there hasn’t been. He is very sharp. It appears like a match made in heaven.”

I pray that it is a match from God, and I pray that if that’s the case, no man or circumstance can pull them apart.  May God bless them and keep them through all of the exciting times ahead!

**I have emailed Mr. Seewald a few questions.  If he responds, I will post them here.  What questions or well wishes do you have for the new couple?**

  1. Just to let you know Ben has two facebook pages so your chances would be better if you emailed both pages! And do you know that the Duggars friend Erin Bates got married?

  2. This is the first time I’ve seen/read your blog before. I like it. I had Bing searched Jessa and Ben to see if they were still in a courtship or if it had progressed to an engagement when your blog came up in the search. Thank you for posting Ben Seewald’s post re: Jesus and Lord of the Rings. Having nothing to do with courtships or relationships in my life (other struggles), it reminded me to have faith that God is in control and that even when things feel/seem hopeless He is there.

    • Hi Brooke,

      Thank you for reading! God is always there, even if we tend to forget that He is in control. I love the Duggars, and am so thankful that their example has helped my family so much…….as I have zero personal experience in courtship :-)

      Faith and Blessings,

      Kat

    • Hi John,

      Thank you, I have had a few people tell me that this was probably the case. I have seen you a few times on the show, are you the producer? If so, please let them know that we are all so happy for them, and thanks for taking the time to give us the information!

      Faith and Blessings,

      Kat

  4. My 26 year old son has patiently waited for a godly woman and finally found one!!! 24 years old who has never dated or kissed a man. Raised in a godly home with deep roots in Jesus. This is my last of 4 to find their mate and all of them have found exceptional spouses as they waited for God’s perfect timing!

  5. I know it is not a easy thing to wait for the one God has for you but I know it will be worth the wait. I am 33 and still waiting until the right guy comes along in the mean time I am trying to serve God and others to the best of my ability.

    • You rock! I think it is so wonderful that you are resting in his Will and doing your best to serve Him. God’s timing is perfect, even if our patience might give out every now and again! God bless Tricia!

  6. I love both the courtship story of Jessa & Ben, as well as, the courtship & marriage of Jill & Derick. For prayer, I wish I could know how Derick’s Mom is healing and SO grateful that God granted her the strength to attend the wedding with her son & first new daughter! Praise God!!

  7. You probably missed the anti-Catholic rant that Ben Seewald posted on his FB page over the weekend. How disturbing were his harsh and judge mental comments about Catholicism. Many fans on his page were and are, livid. He is hypocritical as a supposed Christian…..and very immature. We get a disturbing vibe from him…..hopefully Jessa is observant!

  8. I love the Duggars and appreciate their zeal for the Lord…but I hope they see the red flags in the relationship between Jessa and Ben.
    Those two both need time to mature before they take this relationship any farther, lots of time…

  9. I see red flags too. .It’s a combination of several factors, both in the person of Ben and in the various things that have changed over the last year. I hope and pray that I’m wrong. I wish them the very best.

  10. I noticed Ben on the first episode featuring Big Sandy/AGO. Maybe they met at home school conference.
