The Counting On star, 24, has been married to Texas pastor Jeremy since 2016, but she wants to help out other ultra-religious women who haven't found mates to "equally yoke" with yet. She is recommending a book written by Pastor Deepak Reju.
Jinger posted a photo on Instagram of herself smiling with the book open in front of her.
Her caption read, "Hey single ladies, you may be interested in reading a book I am going through with some of the other women from my church—"She's Got the Wrong Guy: Why Smart Women Settle" by @deepakreju. Jeremy and I read it together and really enjoyed it ? || Search for it on Amazon! ||."
Author Reju serves as the Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Families at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., where he does individual and couples counseling, leads groups, develops the vision for the counseling ministry, and supervises the counseling team.
He is also part of the Biblical Counseling Coalition and in an article on the organization's website, the pastor said he wrote the book because some single Christian women "settle" for the wrong men after they can't find religious ones and struggle with their faith.
Reju noted in the blog that a woman he knew from church "spent time with a non-Christian, and as she grew emotionally attached to him, it became easier and easier to compromise.
"I wrote a book about who not to marry. Ready? Here's my list of ten men that single women should avoid. There is the control-freak, the promiscuous guy, the unchurched guy, the new convert, the unbeliever, the angry man, the loner, the commitment-phobic man, the passive man, and the unteachable guy," Reju wrote.
"Some men will do everything in their power to woo, charm, amaze, cajole, manipulate, and win your affections. They will sell themselves as a decent bill of goods—as the right kind of guy to marry. But if you find yourself with one of these men, be very careful. Apart from genuine repentance, faith, and humility, these men are not worthy of your time. They are the wrong kind of guy to date and marry."
"Paul says your main goal as a Christian single is to live your life in single-minded devotion to the Lord."
Jinger promoting the tome had some of her followers scratching their heads, with one responding on Instagram, in an apparent dig at the Duggars' young marriage ways, "I personally, am supportive of my daughter realizing there's a chance she's in the wrong relationship. I want her to be sure of her choices. That's all. Her dad, on the other hand, will do everything in his power to not support marriage right out of high school and will encourage a worldly lifestyle."
Jinger's devout Duggar family is known for their extremely old-fashioned--some would say bizarre-- courting rules, including mandating only "side hugs" and the use of chaperones for dating couples to avoid sexual temptation.
No such controversy has existed with Jinger, as she wed Jeremy on November 2016 and they expect their first baby, a girl, in July or sooner.
Jinger has had fun comparing her pregnancy bump to fruit and veggies, but now, she's advising Christian women longing to find husbands!
