  1. With a quip? With a mending needle? With a - well, you get the picture. 🤮
  2. (and)Kaylee has used ALL the filters. I'd excuse that level of wacky experimentalism if it were one of the 12-year-olds; but maybe nobody ever lets Kaylee hold the camera phone?
  3. Do you know, I’ve been thinking about this (more than I should, which is ‘any’), and it just occurred to me: does Derick mean ‘College Minus’?!? i thought I vaguely remembered someone saying that Jill was filmed at some point pre-Nepal cramming College Plus workbooks like mad; plus Derick’s no education major. Maybe he thinks that Jill doing 48 College Minus multiple choice workbooks in 6 weeks, IS the same as attending 240 credit hours or similar?? I know it sounds funny to contemplate, but he’d only know whatever nonsense the Duggars parroted about College Plus. He wouldn’t know it’s make-work nonsense.
  4. Agreed. Look at how much he enjoyed his Jingle Bells, lol.
  5. I believe I looked at Anna like I wanted to pop her when she made that comment. ‘Our letter!’ Makes me want to 🤮
  6. I think people definitely have current Jill's hair color in nature. I don't think they have it with Jill's roots though.
  7. Yeah, it's... not that anymore, in the overwhelming majority of public libraries. (Source: Master of Library Science degree granted 2016) . They call this, "Library 2.0", because nobody can be bothered to tell their kids that any public place should be quiet anymore; or that anyone should put down their cell phones. The goal is then to get people "using" the library, which they weren't doing anymore when it was the stuffy source of "SHHHHHHHHH!"s and mean looks. Nowadays, this method of getting butts in library seats is done with Story Time, DVD lending, 3D printers, Starbucks (!), my local library was advertising a teen Wii tournament a few years back, etc., etc. As somebody who can't concentrate with extraneous noise anywhere, I pay an annual fee for membership to an academic library.
  8. Neither Derick nor anyone else ever posted a foot picture. Derick talked about them sight unseen: Not sure what to make of the "must be a stock photo" comments. Maybe somebody saw the above photograph somewhere with a photo credit.
  9. And yet, with this piece of information, you'd think the youngsters would be a bit more enthused over getting to travel to England/Israel/Danger America, etc., etc., thinking "hey, at least it's somewhere different to go"...
  10. Pfff. Amateurs. No explanation of Cana is complete without an extra assertion that God "let" the water be turned into alcoholic wine just because the audience expected it; and that sometimes in the commission of Biblical miracles it's OK to "use evil for good". Or that half the wineskins were set aside for the "kiddy tables" and did contain unfermented wine.
  11. And yet, I guarantee there are many evangelicals out there who think the same way Derick apparently does, which is that prostituting yourself on air to show a watered-down sanitized version of Christianity without any so-called righteous shaming and blaming is useless; and only opens the family up to a toehold for Satan a la - drumroll - Josh. They would say that just tra-la-la'ing around like a circus sideshow "doing things a little [vaguely] differently", isn't doing much at all to educate the sinful heathens. And these people aren't jealous famewhores; they sincerely believe it. Which then makes you wonder: is it more "righteous" to maintain a purity of worldview, even if the worldview is flawed (best case scenario) or (worst) downright rotten, than it is to lie to people by omission and covert action? At least the Rods (maybe bad example as we KNOW they'd change places with JB and M in a minute; but bear with me), you know where they stand, and they're remarkably consistent about it to boot. Also, maybe JB&M allow themselves to think that getting invited to their little "marriage seminars" and lecturing the already converted along the lines the converted already know, makes this a "ministry".
  12. Agreed! and Pris super doesn't understand this one, because it's clearly obvious that the author of the Bible book is talking about and to a batch of people, which there's no way she's escaped that fact as someone steeped in the broth. I doubt she'd write "today we ministered to the Namibian's"; or maybe she would!
  13. The Book of "Roman's", Pris? Really???!? How many times in your life have you looked at an open Bible, girlfriend? Those poor kids are doomed, unless David can stay home from IBLP headquarters to be the English tutor.
  14. She, like Jinger, needs a dip in the ProActiv. Either that, or everyone in the family has suddenly developed an affinity for a mystery filter that makes everyone's complexion look pebbly.
