Josh Duggar joined siblings Jessa Duggar Seewald and Jill Duggar Dillard, as well as some of the younger 19 Kids and Counting children, in wishing patriarch Jim Bob Duggar a happy Father's Day.

This is one of very few online sightings of Josh Duggar since he was thrust into the spotlight for having sexually molested five underage girls--two of whom are sisters Jill and Jessa Duggar--when he was a teenager. He and wife Anna Duggar returned to Arkansas last week--leaving their Washington, D.C. area home when Josh was forced to resign his position with the Family Research Council following the media frenzy.

Josh Duggar took to the Duggar Family Website on Sunday, sharing a clip that features him with wife Anna Duggar--who is expecting their fourth child imminently--and sharing Father's Day sentiments with Jim Bob Duggar.

"Happy Father's Day. I can remember as a little boy, riding the tow truck with you and spending all those hours together. And then as I grew up a little bit, we were at the car lot together and I can remember learning how to do business deals and fill out the paperwork and all those things," Josh begins.

Ben and Jessa Duggar Seewald shared the following Father's Day message with Jim Bob.

Check out what Jill Dillard Duggar and hubby Derick Dillard had to say.

Not much is ever heard of or from Jason Duggar. The 15-year-old sounds like he has learned something quite profound during the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal when he says Jim Bob Duggar has taught him to understand "that everyone makes mistakes and there's a way to move on."

Interestingly enough, Jason Duggar's clip is no longer available on the Duggar Family Website.

Johannah Duggar, who is just nine years old, is happy that her dad spends time with "us kids at home."

Josh and Anna Duggar backed out of an appearance at the ALIVE Christian Music Festival in Ohio this weekend, where they were scheduled to speak to the crowds. Sisters Jill Duggar Dillard and Jessa Duggar Seewald and their husbands, Derick Dillard and Ben Seewald, attended and spoke at the event.

Do you suppose Josh Duggar's warm Father's Day message to Jim Bob Duggar is an indication that things are okay between him and the 19 Kids and Counting patriarch?
