Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, 22, is speaking out about her brother Josh's back-to-back sex scandals, saying she's focusing on her faith to see her through.

Jessa, who is seven months pregnant, tells People magazine, "You just have to keep your focus and trust God." She went on to say, "We are all just people. We are human and we make mistakes."

She was speaking to the magazine while attending yesterday's Southern Women's Show in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she was plugging her book, "Growing Up Duggar: It's All About Relationships."

Hubby Ben Seewald, 20, directly addressed how they deal with the media, saying, "You have to stay true to yourself and your foundation." 

The couple also said they have not ruled out a return to television, that they do not own a TV ("Ben has a lot of books"), and that they're pouring lots of energy into preparing for the arrival of their baby in November.

"The nursery is neutral," Jessa told People. "Our house is tiny; the nursery will also be the guest room. We haven't told anyone what we are doing in the nursery."

Jessa appears with her sister, Jill (Duggar) Dillard on today's TLC special about child sex abuse.
