"Can you understand even the simplest things of the ways of My creation?

It's been a difficult week for the Duggar family as oldest sibling, Josh's trial began this week for his child pornography charges.

Several members of the family attended the court hearing including Joy-Anna, 24, and her husband Austin Forsyth.

On Friday, Josh's wife Anna was once again sitting in the front row with Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard.

This time, though, Austin decided to join them, which he had never done previously.

Austin and Joy-Anna usually watch the hearing from the back of the room instead, putting some distance between them and the rest of the family.

They have also been going on breaks alone instead of with their family members.

But following a lunch break, a Sun reporter present in court today revealed Joy-Anna appeared to be offering more support to Anna.

Joy-Anna gave her sister-in-law a long hug and handed her a coffee before heading to the back of the courtroom.

Josh's younger brother Justin was in attendance for the first half of the trial this week with his mother-in-law.

Both sat in the first row with Anna.

It was only Joy-Anna and Austin, who had previously chosen to sit as far away from them as possible.

She wasn’t there to sit with her husband up front on Friday, as she didn’t arrive until mid-morning.

Joy-Anna decided to sit in the back again, though the front row was full by that time.

Once he had a moment to make the switch, Austin left his spot near Josh’s wife and moved sit with with his own spouse far in the back.


On Thursday, our reporter in the courtroom said Joy-Anna looked distressed, and Austin spent time comforting her with his arm around her.

When the trial broke for lunch, the Counting On couple walked out of the court room fast without speaking to their family and went right into the elevator.

Austin had not been speaking to anyone, but he did interact with Derick, as well as Justin, after the hearing ended.

The day before, Derick sat on the Duggar family side of the courtroom next to Josh's wife, as he prepared for his wife Jill, who has been estranged from the family, to testify in her brother's child pornography trial.

Derick sat alone in the family section until Josh's wife, Anna, accompanied him, as both were very friendly.

Joy-Anna's husband Austin was also in the gallery, wearing a plaid button down and khakis, but he snubbed Derick and he ignored him and Anna.

Josh's trial began earlier this week after he was charged in April with two counts of downloading and possessing child pornography.

The incident is related to the 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas.

The former reality star, 33, who pleaded not guilty, faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
