  1. Why do I think of Cynthia from Rugrats whenever I think of Nurie dying her already-damaged hair blonde? Sweetie, no.
  2. I just can’t. Intimate touching????? Omg I’m so skeeved out. Whyyyyyyy does Jill have to post every little thing about this couple? They have no privacy. If my mom posted on SM that my boyfriend and I were waiting till marriage to smooch, let alone do the things that lead up to the horizontal mambo, I would be HUMILIATED. These people are so fixated on sex that they can’t see straight. You can have sex and “intimate touching” but only under pre-approved and closely monitored circumstances. A.K.A. a “godly” marriage. That’s so creepy. My boyfriend is not a PDA person at all and won’t do much as put his arm around me or give me a kiss on the cheek when other people are around. BY CHOICE. Privately, he is the exact opposite. Because PDA makes him uncomfortable, not because someone else told him it had to be that way. So I can’t imagine what it feels like to be constantly watched and every move scrutinized for unapproved touching.
  3. I have no words for how GOD AWFUL that poem was. Seriously GOD AWFUL. Don’t give up your day job, John. Oh wait...
  4. Just a thought, but I’m anticipating a move to Florida so that they can be closer to Nurie when she marries Nathan in a couple months (no evidence...hypothesis based on observed fundie trends). When they added the patio they probably didn’t anticipate Nurie landing a man. So they need to sell quick so they can find a “beautiful Florida home” like the one she photographed and posted on her blog. 🙄
  5. I’m letting my geek show... on the topic of the Spider-Man costume...does Jill even know who the character is? Since the Rods are so anti-pop culture I figured that they would have no clue. Maybe David does, as he had a life before Jill. But I would think that as Peter Parker was studying SCIENCE as a student and his transformation was due to SCIENCE and was made super on a genetic level by said science, Spider-Man would be off limits. That, and every other super hero as they all have powers and are not “of god”. Think about it...Batman is a wealthy socialite who loves his women. His money made him who he is. Iron Man as well. Wonder Woman would be just a flat-out no-go as she was made from clay and brought to life by the gods of Mount Olympus. And she was raised to be a female warrior in a polytheistic society that has no male headships. And don’t forget Superman, who came from another planet and was able to do all sorts of godlike things due to his parentage. The list goes on and on.
  6. I was JUST going to say this very thing. Jill could take the girls over once a week to “fellowship” and help out. It seems like Amy and her headship put their collective feet down and limited visits after what I imagine to be frequent Rod invasions.
  7. So the thing about Tim leaving Moody is supposedly financial. Jill claims that they did not know the cost went up each year, even though it’s CLEARLY spelled out on their website. I think Tim had academic trouble and left. Or wasn’t able to pay for it all on his own. Financial issues with colleges can be overcome with financial aid and working with the school. But seeing as grants and student loans are seemingly not allowed in their circles, grifting for tuition is the only way to afford it. And Jill couldn’t grift enough to cover the cost. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  8. ”Popping in” on someone usually denotes arriving without notice or very little notice. So yeah, having 14 people show up at your home and being unprepared for it would put someone In a state for sure. And if I’m remembering correctly Grammy Rod isn’t exactly fundilicious. Or at least not as fundy as her son and his family. So being bombarded with all that is surely not easy. Especially when you aren’t used to the noise. And they ordered pizza. Which most likely meant Grammy Rod didn’t have food in the house or wasn’t about to cook a meal for 20 people. I wonder how much involvement David’s family actually has with the Rods. You don’t hear much about either set of grand rents. And it doesn’t appear that they visit much on holidays or vacation.
  9. For them to realize that there are many valid ways to worship would mean that they would need to understand that theirs is not the only way. Which goes against everything they believe in. I grew up Ukrainian Orthodox (still believe but got a bad taste in my mouth from some of the ways my particular church was run). The church I attended as a child and teen taught a very specific class to high school seniors as part of the church school curriculum. The course was all about world religions. Over the course of a school year we studied about all of the world’s major religions, noting the differences and similarities between those faiths and Orthodoxy. It was really interesting and I learned a lot about my own faith by learning about others. Too bad the Duggars would not dream of opening this up to their family. What a shame that they can’t even enjoy a church service that is basically THEIR denomination with a little more joy in it?
  10. Have there been any Nurie updates? Seems like a lot of radio silence...
  11. Some fun “senior trip “. Renee was brought along to watch the baby while Jill and David go off and play. And Tessie came along as an accountability partner. I swear these people are as transparent as a window.
  12. Who is the preteen with the prematurely receding hairline? The one entertaining Garrett?
  13. Yeah...so I’m thinking they are following Nurie for sure. I’ve thought from the start that this “courtship” is really an agreement between Pa Keller and Of Jill. What better way to grow a “printing ministry” than to hitch it to Pa Keller’s inmate god-bothering brigade? So yeah, pawn off Nurie, build a printing for Jesus empire, and live life swimming in the ocean in jean skirts!
