Jeremy and Audrey Roloff have made some big changes in their lives and now the young couple, whose early relationship was followed on TLC’s “Little People, Big World,” is sharing their story of love and struggle since they left the show that made their family famous. In a new book they co-wrote, A Love Letter Life, Jeremy, 28, and Audrey, 27, discuss their decision to leave the show but say they have no regrets.

“It’s been an extraordinary experience, and if anyone asks me about the show, I always say, ‘If I could do it all over again, I would.’ And I think that sums up my experience with it very well,” Jeremy, said in a recent interview. “It was fantastic. It was so much fun. So much opportunity. A lot of growth. It’s just time to do something else.”

Jeremy is not the only sibling to quit the show.

Jeremy’s younger brother, Jacob, 22, quit appearing on “Little People, Big World” when he turned 18 and could make the choice for himself. But Jeremy’s twin Zach and his wife Tori still remain part of the show with his now-divorced parents, Amy and Matt.

Not being a regular on the show, however, doesn’t mean Jeremy and Audrey won’t make appearances on the show when filming is going on during family functions.

“I might have quit the show, but I haven’t quit my family,” he laughs.

And Jeremy says he does miss certain aspects of being part of LPBW.

“It was fun, ya know, showing up and there were 20 people there and we’d go in the barn and have coffee before we shoot, and it was just fun. The comradery of it all,” he said.

Leaving the show and moving away was also the impetus for a much-needed change according to Jeremy, who opens up about his struggle with a porn addiction before and after meeting and marrying Audrey.

“When I first met Audrey, I was failing behind the computer screen,” Jeremy wrote in the book. “I had wandering eyes when it came to risqué images and social media profiles I had no business looking at. I know many men who excuse their porn habit because there is no nudity, but the sin of porn can happen in the mind with or without articles of clothing, no matter whether it’s on an Instagram feed or an explicit website.”

“It wasn’t until we moved to Bend, Oregon, in our second year of marriage, that I identified the foundational failure behind my failure to kill the sin: I had been trying to overcome my addiction on my own,” Jeremy wrote of the changes he’s made.

Jeremy explains that quitting the show and moving away resulted in the couple looking for a new church family and that led them to attend a very small home church, where the accountability was more personal than when they had lived in their hometown. Jeremy says his new pastor addressed the difficult issues which put a burden on his heart and led him to come clean to his wife about his struggle with addiction. Only then was he able to begin the healing process between him and his wife.

“I began the humbling process of confessing my sin and asking Audrey for forgiveness. When I saw the look of betrayal in her eyes, I felt mournfully sorry. Tears ran down her beautiful face,” Jeremy laments.

“Audrey was devastated. My behavior had fractured our trust, scarred our intimacy and broken our unity,” Jeremy continued. But he repented his sins and promised Audrey that he would only have eyes for her. “After apologizing to Audrey and getting my darkness into the light, I was set free — again. Only this time I had the backing of Christian accountability.”

There’s a very real possibility that Jeremy wouldn’t have had that experience and chance to address these issues if they hadn’t made the decision to quit the show. It’s certainly an encouraging turn of events and with their book, it’s exciting to imagine just how many young couples they will affect in positive ways who may be struggling with similar issues.
