Josiah Duggar isn't just courting, he's on Instagram now, too!

One day before the 18-year-old 19 Kids and Counting star announced that he's courting 17-year-old Marjorie Jackson, Josiah joined the social media site on Sunday.

His first ever Instagram photo was of a bumper sticker that read, "Evil thrives -- when good people do nothing." He added his debut hashtags, "#bumpersticker #dogood."

One day later, Josiah added a much more candid and personal snapshot: a photo of him and the special new lady in his life! "I'm so excited to announce that I'm courting Marjorie Jackson!" he wrote, adding, "#19Kids @peoplemag @duggarfam."

Josiah announced yesterday that he's in the early stages of a relationship with Marjorie. A courtship is an old-fashioned and conservative way of dating that has two people getting to know each other as they prepare for marriage. With chaperones present, the couple is free to hug but cannot kiss until their wedding day.

Josiah met Marjorie while taking Spanish lessons from her mother, Analucia. They officially began dating on April 6, the same day that Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar welcomed their first child!

"It's been going very well," Josiah said of their budding romance. "I met Marjorie a few years ago, when I was taking Spanish lessons at her house and I was very impressed with the way she was with her siblings and her love for the Lord."
