Jinger appeared on Tamron Hall and spoke about her relationship — or lack thereof — with her convicted sibling on Tuesday.

According to People, Jinger discussed her new book, Becoming Free Indeed, and the impact her brother's conviction has had on her.

"I haven't spoken to him in years," Jinger said of her brother. "I just would pray that he would be truly broken over what he has done. So I just pray for the victims and their families."

Jinger then focused her comments on what she believed to be Josh's only chance at redemption.

Jinger claimed that "change" from within would be a good starting point for Josh to rectify his past.

"I think that part of this story that I'm telling is you can't put up all of these outward standards and rules and say that's going to do anything. It's not," Jinger continued. "Your heart has to be changed from the inside out and only Jesus can truly change that."

The former 19 Kids and Counting star reflected on the lack of change she claimed she witnessed in her brother despite his sentencing.

"That's not something I saw in my brother," Jinger stated.

"He's not truly changed," Josh's sister added. "So until God does that, it's only what God can do."
