It looks like Christian couple Josh and Anna Duggar from the former TLC series "19 Kids and Counting" are trying to ease back into their normal routine prior to the explosive scandals against Josh last year. This impression came about after they were spotted furniture shopping with another couple one Saturday afternoon.
The pair was seen shopping at Sam's Furniture in Springdale, Arkansas with Anna's sister Priscilla Waller and her husband David, according to Entertainment Tonight. "I don't think they were shopping for themselves," a source said.
This was the first time Josh and Anna were spotted together after he left the faith-based Reformers Unanimous rehab facility in Rockford, Illinois last month.
Still, even if things appear okay now between Josh and Anna, another source said the eldest Duggar son "was not around" during the family's Easter celebration.
"The Duggars spent Easter as a family," the source said. "There was lots of food and fun. Members of the family were hanging out for hours. Josh was not around. The family is doing well and just focusing on themselves."
Josh's brother John-David earlier told Good Morning America that the Devil took his best shot against the family when Josh's child abuse and infidelity scandals surfaced. However, John-Davis is proud of the fact that their family has come out from the ordeal stronger than ever.
"He tried to take our whole family down, but God has really used this to—instead of tearing us apart as a family, he's using it to draw us together, so for us, we've forgiven, and we're moving on, and we're looking to the future," he said.
John-David added that he will always love his elder brother but acknowledged that things will never be the same between them again.
But even though the Duggar family has found it in their hearts to forgive Josh, the public isn't so keen on welcoming Josh back. In fact, the new family show "Jill and Jessa: Counting On" has taken several hits from companies who decided to pull back their ads because they do not want to be associated with the Duggars.
"There is a lot of hate regarding the family," the source said. "After all that has happened, this isn't the same family in many people's eyes."
