Joy-Anna Duggar may have just broken one of her father’s biggest rules by getting a job. The Counting On star was listed as a staff member in a video promoting Fort Rock Family Camp, which is owned by her husband, Austin Forsyth’s, parents, Terry and Roxanne Forsyth.
It is unclear what Joy-Anna does at the camp, but the video makes it clear that she works alongside Austin in some capacity. In the clip, Joy-Anna pretty much just stands by her husband while he talks about all of the programs the camp offers.

The video does not reveal if Joy-Anna is a counselor or director, though future promotional videos might clear that up.
Whatever Joy-Anna does, the fact that she has a job is huge for the Duggar family. As Counting On fans are well aware, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are extremely conservative and have raised their sons and daughters under a strict set of rules.
At the top of the list of rules is getting married and having children, which most of Joy-Anna’s siblings have done. The women in the family also tend to stay at home and let their husbands provide, so Joy-Anna getting a job is a pretty big deal.
That said, Joy-Anna’s job is technically still in the family. According to In Touch Weekly, the job promotes the same conservative values the Duggars hold and is not a typical camping experience.
In fact, the camp frequently plays host to conservative guests. This includes the ever controversial Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy Ministries, who promote questionable disciplinary methods for children.
While we still don’t know what Joy-Anna Duggar’s job entails, it is possible we learn more about it on the upcoming season of Counting On, which is expected to premiere later this year.
