Audrey Roloff Sends Inspiring Message to Fellow Moms

Audrey Roloff recently ran through a list of seven things she loved about her daughter.

But while we’re sure the Little People, Big World star could come up with an even longer list, she’s actually here to talk about the one thing she hates about being a parent:

GUILT.

You know what she means, don’t you, fellow parents around the Internet?

This is a topic Audrey has touched on in the past, writing to her Instagram followers at one point:

“I feel guilty sometimes for not being able to just stay in bed and play with [my daughter], or for putting her in the play gym to be entertained by the dangling animals instead of me.”

That’s silly, of course.

It’s understandable and relatable, but still silly… because of course we cannot be with our kids at all times, tending to their every need 24/7.

In her latest Instagram post, Roloff again brings up the subject of guilt, but she does so in different manner.

The reality star tries to help other parents feel better about any one of a number of reasons why they may feel at the moment as if they messed something up with their child.

“Moms,” Audrey opens simply, adding:

“You’re not the only one who cut your baby’s nail too shoot. You’re not the only one who had to watch countless YouTube tutorials to figure out how to properly baby wrap.

“You’re not the only one who didn’t know what to do when your baby smacked her head on the hardwood for the first time.”

We can see what Audrey is doing here and we admire the effort.

We’d just like to point out that she could have written this note to Moms AND Dads — because there are plenty of men out there who take parenting very seriously and who feel all the the feelings Roloff is describing in this caption.

Which continues as follows:

You’re not the only one who didn’t know it’s not safe to put your baby in a puffy coat in the car seat.

You’re not the only one who didn’t know you’re supposed to start brushing your baby’s teeth from the moment you see them emerge.

You’re not the only one who is constantly googling what foods to give your baby, and how much they should be eating or how much they should be sleeping.

It’s all so very true.

Being a parent is like trying to avoid one landmine after another, on a near daily basis.

It’s impossible to ever relax, to ever feel as though you have a full grasp on what is best for your son(s) or daughter(s) because a new challenge or obstacle is always just around the corner.

Scroll down to see how Roloff concluded her post…

You’re not the only one who has been criticized or glared at for doing something wrong. I have too. You’re not the only one. You’re not alone. Even though you might feel like it sometimes, we are all figuring out this motherhood thing as we go.

So I’ll be here.

Sharing what I’ve learned, where I’ve failed and how the Lord is encouraging, empowering, and equipping me as I embrace all that it means to be a mother.

Tag a mom friend that you want to encourage.

Audrey and husband Jeremy welcomed Ember Jean into the world last September.

Both have been open about how difficult it was at first, especially for Audrey, who suffered a great deal of pain while breastfeeding.

But here they are, having overcome those initial fears and tears and confident enough to pass along all they’ve learned to other new parents across the world.

Once again, we appreciate Audrey’s intention here.

Next time, though, she can just go ahead and address both genders.

Audrey Roloff: Here Are 7 Things I Love About My Daughter

Have you blinked in the past few months? 

If so, you may have missed Ember Jean Roloff growing up right before our very eyes.

The first and, to date, only child of Audrey and Jeremy Roloff, Ember was born in September of 2017 and has come a very long way since the day of her birth.

Just how long?

Audrey has provided yet another helpful status update via Instagram, starting with a pair of precious new Ember photos.

Check them out below!

Audrey Roloff Poses in a Bathing Suit! WHOA!

About two years ago, Audrey Roloff created a pretty big stir on the Internet when she posed naked in a bathtub.

As an admittedly faithful Christian and relatively conservative woman, Roloff took Little People, Big World fans by major surprise when she shared such a risque picture.

Audrey has not really done so since.

Nearly every photo Roloff posts on social media at this point feature her and her husband or, these days, her and her precious daughter, Ember Jean.

Most also feature plenty layers of clothing.

Which is also a precursor to explaining why we were a bit taken aback on Wednesday night when we jumped over to Audrey’s Instagram page and were greeted by an image of this reality star in a bathing suit.

It’s not an especially revealing piece of swimwear.

And we wouldn’t judge Audrey even if it were.

(In our opinion, how you act in life, how you treat your fellow human being, is far more important than what you wear on your body.)

But we simply didn’t expect to see a photograph of Audrey and Jeremy on the beach together, as they are below:

What prompted this snapshot?

A rather cool opportunity, actually.

Roloff included with this picture a lengthy caption that details a “BIG TRAVEL GIVEAWAY” that she then explained as follows:

I am teaming up with some amazing women to give one of you a $ 1000 gift card so you can travel to the DREAM DESTINATION of your choice.

This photo of Jeremy and I was taken two years ago in the British Virgin Islands, the most beautiful place I’ve ever traveled.

She then added:

Traveling is so fun and I’ve missed it since getting pregnant/having Ember, but i can’t wait to go back to the BVI’s someday.

For now, I’m excited to bless one of YOU with some travel funds!!!!

What, exactly, is Roloff referring to here?

How can you actually win a getaway of this nature?

Audrey is happy to list the steps:

1. LIKE the photo of Audrey and Jeremy on the beach.

2. Follow Audrey’s friends who are helping give this contest: @elsielarson @babyboybakery @audreyroloff @thefreckledfox @theshineproject.

3. Tag a friend you want to bring with you! Tag as many personal friends as you want, all in a new comment.

Audrey adds that the giveaway ends April 15th at midnight CT and for an “extra entry, tag us in your story and let us know where you will go!”

(You also must be 18 years of age or older to qualify.)

This sure makes us happy that Audrey returned to Instagram.

The long-time TLC personality took about three weeks off from social media in order for her and Jeremy to finish the manuscript for their first book.

(Yes, folks, their first book!)

But now that the manuscript is in the hands of her editors, Audrey is back to conversing with her fans on this popular Internet platform.

We don’t know when the Roloff relationship memoir will be available to purchase, but here is what Audrey recently wrote about it:

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us as we’ve been in the trenches of writing.

We still have a long process of editing to look forward to in the coming months, but we are celebrating this first big milestone in the process!

Jeremy and I are so excited to share this labor of love with all of you.

Our hope is that it would encourage our generation to prepare for, pursue, and protect their love story.

We can’t wait to read.

Audrey Roloff Shares Major Baby Milestone: Watch! Shriek!

Audrey Roloff returned to Instagram just in time.

As previously noted, Roloff took a three-week hiatus from social media last month in order to finish writing a book with husband Jeremy Roloff.

But she shared a new post just a few days after Easter, wishing folks around the Internet a very happy Resurrection Day.

We're very glad to have Audrey back in our virtual lives because she often shares inspiring messages about faith and family.

Moreover, the timing could not have been better for Roloff to jump back online… considering the milestone just achieved by daughter Ember Jean.

"The face of determination. Moments later she learned to crawl. She is one STRONG girl," wrote Audrey as a caption to the photo above.

Indeed, seven-month old Ember can now now get around on her own, marking one of the more exciting moments of any parent's life.

Thankfully, Audrey didn't merely capture this crawling on camera… she captured it on camera and shared the results with her followers.

"While we were gone… Our baby got a little bigger, and hair got a little longer," added Audrey in her return post last week.

She wrote those words not long after announcing that she and Jeremy were set to become actual, official, professional writers.

The past several months have given this Little People, Big World couple plenty to learn from and talk about in their memoir, from discovering they were pregnant… to struggling with parenthood… to watching their girl grow up each and every day.

"Our hope is that [our book will] encourage our generation to prepare for, pursue, and protect their love story," wrote Audrey upon first telling the public about her project.

No release date for it has been announced just yet.

But while we wait to read Audrey and Jeremy to share their words of wisdom, we can at least enjoy the following footage of Ember crawling.

Audrey Roloff: Resurreced on Instagram! At Last!

Audrey Roloff has returned to social media.

The Little People, Big World issued a lengthy goodbye statement on Instagram last month for one very exciting reason:

She and husband Jeremy needed time away to finish their first-ever book!

This book will apparently mix stories from their own lives with helpful suggestions and pieces of advice they feel qualified to dole out as two people very much in love.

“Thank you all in advance for respecting our time away, and we would be forever grateful if you would join us in prayer over our book as we finish writing,” Audrey wrote back when she confirmed her hiatus.

The popular TLC star added at the time:

“Please pray that the Holy Spirit would inspire or writing, and that this book would be a tool to inspire, encourage, challenge, and change peoples view of love, approach to dating, and desire for marriage.

“LOVE YOU GUYS! Keep on ALWAYS believing in the MORE that is with you. Bye for now.”

Now, however, after three painful weeks for her followers, Audrey is saying hello once again.

“After taking 3 weeks completely off social media (which was so necessary and refreshing) WE’RE BACK!” wrote Audrey on Tuesday afternoon, adding:

“Happy Resurrection Day a few days late!

“While we were gone… Our baby got a little bigger, and hair got a little longer;) We also turned in our book manuscript a couple days ago.”

Along with this caption, Audrey included a handful of new photos, some of which we’ve shared above and below.

She also added the following words:

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us as we’ve been in the trenches of writing. We still have a long process of editing to look forward to in the coming months, but we are celebrating this first big milestone in the process!

Jeremy and I are so excited to share this labor of love with all of you.

Our hope is that it would encourage our generation to prepare for, pursue, and protect their love story.

It’s unclear just when Audrey and Jeremy’s book will be available to purchase, but this process takes time.

If they only just turned in a manuscript, we’re guessing the book itself may not even be out until 2019. But we can’t say for certain.

Thankfully, along with Audrey’s social media return, she and her loved ones have also returned to TLC.

A new episodes of their beloved reality show aired on Tuesday night, with plenty more to come in the weeks ahead.

Did you catch it?

If not, you can click HERE to relive the premiere… and click down below to cycle through adorable photos of Audrey and Jeremy’s daughter, Ember.

We adore her.

Audrey Roloff Sends Farewell Message to Fans

How is this for irony?

TLC has confirmed that Audrey Roloff and her family will return to the small screen on April 3, when Little People, Big World premieres its highly-anticipated 13th season. 

But just as Audrey is about to come back into your life in this regard, she’s set to depart your life in another one.

Indeed, Audrey and husband Jeremy Roloff confirmed to fans last week that they are taking a social media hiatus.

Tragically, you will not be treated to any new photos of daughter Ember Jean or any fresh musings on faith and family from this beloved twosome.

Not any time in the near future, at least, for one pretty cool reason:

The Roloffs are writing a book!

The book will “essentially [be] our love story,” Audrey explained upon making this major announcement, adding on Instagram at the time:

“We are spilling never before told tales from our dating journey, and all the ups and downs and ins and outs of our love story.

“The pages are filling up with our failures and successes, what we learned from dating and long distance, and how we prepared more for our marriage than our wedding.”

In order to complete this project and dedicate time to making it the best they can be, Audrey and Jeremy are going away for a little while.

Social media wise, that is.

Before she takes this break, though, Audrey has a few things she wants to tell her 705,000 followers.

“In case you missed our big news, @jeremyroloff and I will be taking a bit of a social media break,” she wrote over last weekend, expounding as follows:

“We’re not exactly sure how long, but we need to unplug for a bit. I saw a quote the other day that said, ‘Almost anything will work again if you unplug it for a minute or two. Especially you.'”

Here’s the thing, however: Audrey is signing off for more just a minute.

She says it will be a minimum of a “few weeks in order to give undivided attention to writing our book and being with our baby girl.”

Those are two very important things, no doubt.

So, what are fans to do in the meantime?

They can go watch Little People, Big World online to get their fill of the Roloffs, as always.

And also…

“Turn on post notifications for my account so you know when I’m back! Otherwise the Instagram algorithm will make me disappear from your feed forever,” Audrey notes.

In the meantime, she leaves loyal supporters with three pieces of advice:

FIRST, she writes:

If you have a question, you can likely find the answer in my Instagram story “favorites.” Click my profile and they should appear.

SECOND:

For customer service regarding my shop alwaysmore.com you can reach out via @shopalwaysmore and my assistant will be happy to help you!

And THIRD:

Get on our mailing list (link in bio). We’ll be sending out a few updates on our book and of course a little dose of Ember;) Because how can you resist that plump precious face?

In conclusion, Audrey has this to say:

Thank you all in advance for respecting our time away, and we would be forever grateful if you would join us in prayer over our book as we finish writing.

Please pray that the Holy Spirit would inspire or writing, and that this book would be a tool to inspire, encourage, challenge, and change peoples view of love, approach to dating, and desire for marriage.

LOVE YOU GUYS! Keep on ALWAYS believing in the MORE that is with you. Bye for now.

Will you be picking up a copy of Audrey and Jeremy’s book?

Will you be tuning in for Little People, Big World Season 13?

We sure hope so on both accounts.

Because we’ll need others with whom we can talk about each as the weeks and months go by!

Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff: Brace Yourselves for Our “BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!”

Earlier this month, we reported that Audrey Roloff had huge news to share about her daughter, Ember Jean.

We weren’t kidding.

If anything, we were being literal because Audrey informed Instagram followers that her six-month old was in the 90th percentile for weight.

But now Audrey and her husband say they have truly huge news to share about themselves, and also little Ember, at least to some extent.

“BIG ANNOUCEMENT!!!! Read till the end,” Audrey just teased as the opening to a very long caption that accompanied the photo above.

The Little People, Big World star then built up to the big news before dropping the bombshell:

“Over the years Jeremy and I have received thousands of comments, messages, and e-mails containing questions about dating, long distance, purity, conflict, love, and how we prepared for marriage.

That being said, it is so liberating to finally be able to share this exciting news with all of you…. WE ARE WRITING A BOOK!!!!”

Yes, an actual book!

They won’t be the first members of their semi-famous family to do so, as Jacob Roloff is actually coming out with his second book soon.

But Audrey and Jeremy’s book will be rather unique, it sounds like.

“The book is essentially our love story. We are spilling never before told tales from our dating journey, and all the ups and downs and ins and outs of our love story,” Audrey explains, elaborating as follows:

“The pages are filling up with our failures and successes, what we learned from dating and long distance, and how we prepared more for our marriage than our wedding.

“We cant wait to share what we’ve learned from our own dating journey in order to equip our readers to build Godly relationships from their first date to “I do” and beyond.”

About a month ago, Audrey shared a story of her romance with Jeremy in just three sentences.

But it’s safe to assume this memoir will be longer than that.

“For the past few months we’ve been deep in the trenches of writing… mostly in our pajamas, hibernating in our house, postmating curry for dinner, and typing away late into the night while Ember is asleep,” Roloff continues.

“The book writing process is not for the faint of heart, but we are so eager to share this labor of love with all of you!”

Thankfully, Audrey says she and Jeremy aren’t actually writing the book.

They are, of course. But they also are not.

“We would so appreciate your prayers for this book,” she says, adding:

“Our hope is that the Holy Spirit would inspire our writing and (when the time comes) your reading!

“We acknowledge that God is the author of our love story and this book, we just want to be faithful and creative narrators.”

The only downside to this project?

We may be hearing less frequently from the beloved couple over the next few weeks or even months.

“In order to finish strong, we’ll be taking a bit of a social media hiatus so that we can really focus on writing,” concludes Audrey.

“Don’t worry, we’re not going away forever, we just need to unplug for a bit so we can do some deep work.

“Turn on post notifications so you are notified when we come back!”

Will do, for sure.

The only question now, which we leave open to all Little People, Big World fans is this:

What will Audrey and Jeremy title their memoir?

Audrey Roloff Shares HUGE News About Little Ember

Audrey Roloff has giant news to share about her daughter.

And we mean this literally…

… because Ember is practically a giant!

We’re just paraphrasing the Little People, Big World star herself here, as Audrey just shared the very cute picture above, along with a lengthy caption that provided the photo with an important backstory.

“We took this chunky girl to her 6 month check up today! NO WAY has it been 6 months (in 10 more days technically) since we labored through the night and brought our precious baby into this world,” wrote Roloff.

She added:

“I am honestly so thankful for those wristband rolls, plump checks and squishable thighs.”

If you’ll recall, just a few months ago, Audrey opened up in detail about her breastfeeding struggles.

She wrote candidly about a condition known as mastitis, which caused EXTREME pain for the new mother any time she offered her child sustenance.

Back in November, Audrey said doctors told her a few days after Ember that the child would “[have] trouble gaining weight and they were concerned” because Roloff’s milk supply had dried up.

As you might expect, Audrey was very worried.

But she persisted. She embraced her breastfeeding journey… and here is Ember is today!

She’s nearly six months old and, as Audrey is about to explain, the bundle of joy could not be doing better.

“With all the issues I endured in those first few months, we were told that we’d never be able to exclusively breastfed,” Roloff continued in the caption for the first image shared in this article, continuing:

“Yet here we are hitting the 90th percentiles on pure mama milk!

“This post is not to discourage anyone whose journey looked different than mine, I’m simply praising God for fulfilling this desire of my heart.”

The 90th percentile?!?

Wow. Way to go, Audrey! And Ember, too, of course.

Audrey concluded by offering words of encouragement to other parents out there.

“Rock on mamas,” she wrote, adding:

Don’t compare your story to mine or anyone else’s. “Consider it joy” for wherever God has you on your motherhood journey.

Tag a mama who you admire in the comments and tell them why.

Audrey and Jeremy (pictured above with his wife) have consistently shared updates on Ember and photos of Ember over the past five-plus months.

They’ve also been very honest about what life as a mother or a father has meant to them so far.

For example, Audrey summed up her journey to date with just one word a few days ago: Grace.

Where did this come from? Allow Roloff to explain…

“When I realize I’m not the kind, patient, and loving wife intend to be, grace. When I get down on myself for working too much or not enough, grace.

“When I haven’t checked anything off my to-do list, grace. When I’ve worn the same outfit 7 days in a row, grace.”

LOL, we love it. And we agree with it.

We’re so glad to hear that Ember is happy and healthy and that Audrey has successfully overcome those early obstacles to end up in such a content place as a mother.

Audrey Roloff Extends Peace Offering to Jacob Roloff… But Does He Accept?

According to a new report, Audrey Roloff recently took a break from sending messages about marriage, family and God to do something else on social media:

Reach out to her brother-in-law.

About two months ago, rumors first surfaced that Audrey and Jacob Roloff did not exactly see eye-to-eye.

Or nose-to-nose. Or ear-to-ear. Or really any body part to any body part.

What we’re saying and what we’ve alleged in the past is this: Audrey and Jacob just don’t get along.

What led certain outlets to make this claim?

The main evidence centers around Instagram and two facts surrounding this popular platform:

ONE, the public realized that Audrey and Jeremy don’t actually follow each other’s accounts.

TWO, nary a photo exists that features both Audrey and Jacob in the same place, which may be telling considering how frequently all other family members appear to hang out.

As for why these reality star may not be on the best of terms?

Audrey is very into God and Christianity, while Jacob, to put it simply, is not.

He’s openly agnostic.

Moreover, Audrey has been accused of being a tad bit fake and manipulative, often sharing personal notes about her family and faith… while simultaneously shilling for various products.

And anyone who has kept close track of Jacob over the last two years or so is well aware that he hates nothing more than phoniness.

Heck, Jacob quit Little People, Big World in the summer of 2016 specifically because he couldn’t handle how scripted and fake his family’s reality show had become.

So anyway. This brings us all back to Audrey and Jacob’s rumored feud.

A source tells Radar Online that the former has tried to put an end to it over the last few weeks by Liking nearly all of Jacob’s Instagram pictures.

She’s reached out on social media, this insider says, but Jacob is yet to return the favor.

He still does not follow Audrey’s page, despite following every other relative, including his other sister-in-law, Tori, who married brother Zach back in 2015.

But while Audrey may have subtly tried to extend a peace offering to Jacob, she has not yet congratulated him on his December engagement to Isabel Rock.

At least not in public.

Therefore, the jury remains out on this feud.

All it would really take is one photo of Audrey and Jacob together to put an end to this chatter, but until the Internet sees one, it will continue to wonder, speculate and ask questions

That’s just how the Internet rolls.

Only you two can put an end to it, Auds and Jacob.

Audrey Roloff: Jesus Wants You Off the Internet!

Give Audrey Roloff a bit of credit for being self-aware in her latest Instagram message.

The Little People, Big World has taken to her social media page in order to encourage people… to get off of social media.

Wait… what? Excuse her?!?

The faithful reality star explained her point in a caption to the sweet photo above.

As you can see, the image features Audrey cozying up in bed to her husband, Jeremy.

And the caption opens as follows:

For us, Sunday’s are for time with Jesus and friends, rest, reading, walks, games, fires, and doing our weekly marriage journal

This is not the first time Audrey has mentioned her journal, which is something she takes very very seriously.

Acknowledging that this message may be a tad “ironic,” Audrey continued, urging followers to read what she has to say – and then unplug their computer, basically.

“If I can just convince a few of you to unplug for the rest of the day, it’s worth it!” she wrote, adding:

“So I’m getting on here to tell you to GET OFF! Close this app and put your phone in a drawer if you have to! Stop scrolling, sharing, and spending and just be present.

“Make Sunday a day of REST.

“Comment below with an emoji that illustrates your ideal day of rest, and then CLOSE THIS APP and go do that thing!”

Audrey wrote that she would get this exercise underway, sharing an emoji of flames, an emoji of books, an emoji of a journal and an emoji of a cookie.

It’s safe to assume the flame emoji is a reference to daughter Ember Jean.

Back in November, Audrey wrote a similar post, essentially telling God that she’ll use Instagram less often.

For what reason?

“As much as l love sharing my life with y’all and what I’ve learned/am learning, l never want to be someone who spends more time sharing on social media than l do seeking the Lord and searching His truths,” she explained at the time.

Audrey continued late last year:

“I want to be someone who spends more time reading truth, engaging wisdom, and listing for His still small voice, than sharing my own incomplete oversimplified perspectives.”

So… why has Roloff not really stuck with this vow?

Why does she still frequently share photos and her thoughts on social media?

The reality star has mattresses to share, people!

We kid. Sort of.

We definitely do give Audrey a hard time for using her faith and even her family to shill for various products, but we’d also be sad if she took a true hiatus from Instagram because that would mean fewer Ember Jean photos.

And we need our Ember Jean fix! She is such a cutie patootie!

What do you think of Audrey’s Jesus-related piece of advice here?

Have you ever considered giving up the Internet for one day per week?

Or does that seem like an impossible challenge?
