Jana Duggar is rumored to be leaving 19 Kids and Counting to follow her own pursuits.
Usually, when a Duggar kid leaves home, it is because of a courtship and marriage.
However, this is not the case for Jana Duggar.
She has no prospects in the marriage department, and at 25, she feels like she needs to go ahead and further her education.
An insider recently told OK! Magazine, “Jana just turned 25, so she knows she needs to get on with her education if she doesn’t want to be stuck at her mom and dad’s house in Arkansas forever.”
The insider also revealed that Jana Duggar’s father, Jim Bob, was not happy about her plans, but that she has made up her mind.
A source told The Hollywood Gossip, “She told her parents that she was looking at Christian colleges and would be applying soon. Jana knows she needs to get on with her education if she doesn’t want to be stuck at her mom and dad’s house in Arkansas for the rest of her life.”
It doesn’t seem like the pursuits that Jana Duggar is interested in will be too far from what she is used to.
She said in the book The Duggars: 20 and Counting, “I love working with children and I especially love being around new babies, You might think I get plenty of that as being part of this big family.”
She added, “But I also volunteer at a children’s shelter to help entertain and visit with the little ones there. I have lots of other interests too, including sewing, cooking and playing the piano, violin and harp. I enjoy decorating and helping plan parties and political-campaign events. I love being the big sister to a houseful of siblings.”
What do you think of the rumor that Jana Duggar might be getting ready to strike out on her own?
