Jessa Duggar's Sweet Gesture to a Fan Shows What Kind of Wife She'll Be

Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald

One of our favorite things about the Duggar family is just how down-to-earth they genuinely seem to be. These reality stars have seen their fame explode in recent years thanks to their hit TLC show 19 Kids & Counting, but they haven't let that affect their core values.

Take Jill Duggar's and Jessa Duggar's weddings. Jill's was last June, and even though a thousand of her closest loved ones attended, they did it on a budget. Jessa is marrying her sweetie Ben Seewald in just over a month, and the lovebirds are planning to reuse Jill and Derick Dillard's decorations so they can save money for the honeymoon. And judging from the sweet note she sent to one fan, Jessa is going to make one very thoughtful wife.


Have we mentioned yet how much we love that the Duggar kids haven't let fame go to their heads and remain reasonable and considerate human beings? Speaking of those weddings, Jill's and Jessa's wedding registries were similar and refreshingly practical. 

They were also both published online, which means technically anyone can send them a gift. One fan actually did, and she got the surprise of her life when Jessa wrote her a handwritten thank-you note in gratitude.

Deanna Skoglund told E! News that she follows Jessa on Instagram, and after seeing that "they were registering in one of her photos," she decided to send them a little something off their list -- a photo frame they had registered for.

"I'm a huge fan of the Duggars! I've been watching their show for years!" Skoglund explained. "It's been wonderful to see such a Godly and beautiful family grow as much as they have!"

She said she sent a note with the frame, but never expected to get anything back, let alone a personalized thank-you card.

"I left a note to let them know I'm such a fan of the show and am so happy for them," she said. "I was totally not expecting anything in return so I was shocked when I saw a handwritten thank-you note from Jessa herself!"

The note referenced the "beautiful 'love' photo frame" and thanked Deanna for investing into their lives and future together. Jessa signed it, "Love, Ben & Jessa," and referenced Ephesians 2:8-9, which reads, "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast."

Deanna gushed, "I have been smiling since I got it. Seriously, so sweet of her to respond so graciously to a fan ... I love that the note was handwritten from Jessa herself and addressed to me personally! Such a special thing for her to do. The Duggars are such great people!"

Totally awesome. It was such a sweet and thoughtful thing for Jessa to do and just shows what great wife material she is. A man needs to feel appreciated when he does something special for his gal, and it looks like Jessa has the genuine gratitude thing down pat.

Are you surprised Jessa wrote a thank-you note to a fan who sent her a gift off her registry?
