"19 Kids and Counting" stars Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald finally revealed the photo invitation for their wedding as pregnant sister Jill Dillard shares the most important Bible verses every woman should know when expecting a child.

The wedding invitation for Ben and Jessa, who will walk down the aisle Nov. 1, was recently published on TLC's website and features a sweet photo of the couple. It contains the words:

"Mr. & Mrs. Jim Bob Duggar request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter Jessa Lauren Duggar to Benjamin Michael Seewald, son of Michael & Guin Seewald."

The invitation was posted alongside a series of engagement photos of the future Mr. and Mrs. Seewald, who have said they "cannot wait" to get married.

Meanwhile, Jessa's older sister Jill, who is expecting a child with husband Derick Dillard, shares several Bible verses every woman should hold to throughout pregnancy.

Last Sunday, Jill took to Instagram and shared a photo of herself and her 25-year-old husband with the caption: "Writing out bible verses for encouragement during pregnancy, labor and delivery!"

The photo shows the Christian couple rewriting verses such as Isaiah 26:3, which reads: "You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You."

Another favorite quote from the Old Testament, taken particularly from 1 Chronicles 4:10, reads: "Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, 'Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.' And God granted this request."

The couple also wrote down several lines from hymns such as "I Will Serve Thee" and "How Great Is Our God" on paper.

The couple also plans to deliver their first baby at home, with the aid of Duggar's mother Michelle.

"I think home birth is really special because you are in your own environment," she told People magazine. "You don't have to pick up, move and have that stall labor. I am looking forward to having the calm, intimate setting of being home."

"Ultimately, we want to be an example for them," Dillard added, referring to his plans for their future children. "For a daughter, I want to show her how a man should treat her, just like Jill's dad did for her. And just be the best dad I can to both my sons and daughters and really purpose to teach them the Word of God early on and pray that they will come to the Lord early in life."

Jill also revealed her excitement at becoming a parent and emphasized the importance of leading by example, such as in unwavering commitment to marriage, in order to train children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.

"Both of our parents have had the hearts of their children, knowing that they can come to them and talk about anything," she said. "And then, just really leading by example and purposing to have a Godly marriage and one that is focused on the Lord. And hopefully the children will learn to fear God and be a servant of all."
