Jana Duggar and Jinger Duggar--along with their mom Michelle Duggar--are scheduled for their first public appearance since the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting. This is Jinger and Jana Duggar's first appearance since the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal hit the media back in May.

It is expected by most--given their ages--that Jinger Duggar, who is 21, and Jana Duggar, who is 25, were among Josh Duggar's sexual molestation victims. Sisters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald admitted that they had, in fact, been sexually molested by their brother, but wouldn't have know it if Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar hadn't explained the situation to them. They were reportedly asleep when their brother copped an inappropriate feel. Jana Duggar and Jinger Duggar have never admitted to being among Josh Duggar's victims.

Michelle Duggar shared a post on the family's website that lists herself, Jana, and Jinger Duggar as speakers at an upcoming Christian event. The event is the COMMIT Mother/Daughter Conference, and is designed to encourage young women--aged 12 to 17--and their mothers to seek God above all else.

This means Jinger and Jana Duggar will travel with Michelle to Indianapolis for a fun ladies-only getaway.

The Duggar family blog also shared a report that confirms that it has cost Discovery Communications a great deal of money to cancel 19 Kids and Counting. Being strong Christians, however, there is no way the Duggar family would take any pleasure in that.

Is there?

Surely flocks of young women and their moms will travel to Indianapolis to hear what Jinger and Jana Duggar, as well as Michelle Duggar, have to say about following the Lord. That belief system is at their family's very core.
