Jessa Duggar thanked fans for their support during her family's "difficult times," as the molestation scandal surrounding her brother Josh shows no signs of dying down.

On her blog, Jessa wrote she felt "grateful and blessed" despite the tough times, before showing her gratitude to those who have stood by her family as they remain under investigation from Arkansas social services -- and off TLC's airwaves.

"We want to pause a moment and thank all of you who have been lifting us up in prayer," the devout 22-year-old wrote. "Our little family is, by God's grace, going to continue seeking to lovingly point people to Christ and encourage those who are down.

"God's goodness and kindness to us even in difficult times is humbling and wonderful!"

The brown-haired beauty, who's expecting her first child with 19-year-old husband Ben Seewald, also said she's been feeling some "little, yet strong, kicks" from her bun-in-the-oven, who's "growing steadily.

"We recently had an ultrasound, but aren't revealing our firstborn's gender yet," she wrote. "Can't wait to welcome this blessing from God into the world!"

She wrapped up the upbeat blog with a bible verse, Hebrews 12:1-2: : "Therefore seeing we also are surrounded with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily ensnare us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jessa has been one of her family's biggest mouthpieces as the religious clan attempts to save their image after the damaging sex scandal. Along with her sister Jill, she told Fox News she was one of her brother Josh's molestation victims and had forgiven him.
