Fans of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" starring the Duggar family can't wait for the new season, which will premier on Tuesday, September 2 and run through November.

During this season, love is in the air surrounding the air surrounding the Duggar clan. The relationship between Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald grows stronger as he moves closer to their home, and patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and wife Michelle celebrate 30 years of marriage.

Viewers will also watch the Duggar's oldest son, Josh, wife Anna and their three kids "decide it may be time to make a few changes in their growing family," hints the network.

Meanwhile, the tight-knit family continues to share the message of Christ around the United States. In a soon to be released DVD, "19 Kids and Preaching," several members will be shown spreading the gospel in various locations.

The DVD shows Josh Duggar preaching in front of the White House, and Jim Bob and Michelle sharing their testimony at a local university. It will be available for download on September 9 and released on October 10.

In the meantime, Michelle tells fans about her all-time favorite wedding gift:

"When Jim Bob and I were setting up our home, we had a beautiful wood table that folded out so that you could add leaves and make it really big. We found it used and just loved it. Of course, when we were first married, we kept it folded down because there were just two chairs and the two of us at the time. So as a surprise, a sweet elderly couple that lived near us arranged to make us something really special for the table. They were like our adopted grandparents and they lived three doors down from our first honeymoon cottage," Michelle revealed.

"Unbeknownst to me, they came into the house one day and measured our table so they could create a one-of-a-kind handmade crochet cover. The best part was that they made it big enough to fit the table when it was fully expanded with all the leaves in place. When they presented it to me, I just cried. I had dreamed of the day we could expand the table to its fullest and see a big family around it. It seemed like it'd be forever before we'd be able to unfold it all the way and actually use it. I couldn't wait. "

We used it for special parties, baby showers, wedding shower, and events for friends until our own family was large enough to fit around it. That tablecloth has been a special keepsake all these years, and I have used it over and over."
