Early lifeEdit


Kendra as a child

Kendra Renée Caldwell was born on August 11, 1998, to Paul Caldwell and Christina Caldwell. As a young child, Kendra lived in Woodbridge, Virginia, where her father was a pastor at Heritage Baptist Church. In 2008, her father was sent by Baptist International Missions, Inc. to plant a church in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Personal lifeEdit




She met her future husband Joseph Duggar while attending Lighthouse Baptist Church, where her father is the pastor. On March 7, 2017, Joseph Duggar asked Kendra to court him in the lot where his childhood home once was. He presented her with a promise ring, which the other Duggars have never done. They announced their courtship with a TLCGo video released online.




Joseph proposed on May 26, 2017 at his sister Joy-Anna's wedding reception. Joy pretended to toss the bouquet into the crowd of eligible women, but turned and handed it to Kendra instead. Joseph then came up to her and proposed. This proposal is featured in the Counting On episode "Joy's Wedding".


Just married


Kendra married Joseph Duggar on September 8, 2017, at First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Her sister Lauren was her maid of honor, and she had ten bridesmaids including her mother Christina Caldwell and future sisters-in-law Jana, Johannah, Jennifer, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy-Anna. Her sister Olivia Caldwell was her flower girl, and her brothers Nathan and Timothy were the ring bearers.

For their honeymoon, the couple visited Athens, Greece.
