In her mind, Jill thinks Tim being able to fly a plane is comparable to graduating from the Air Force Academy or Naval flight school being able to fly fighter jets.

When, in fact, many, many high school kids get their hours in and are qualified to fly just like Timmy, well before they even get their driver's license.

I've got a friend whose son always loves aviation, wanted to be a pilot since grade school.  When he was in high school, he got a job cleaning planes for a private company that leased them to different clients.  In return, he took part of his pay as hours of flight instruction from the owner of the business who was qualified to instruct.  He got his pilot's license as soon as he turned 16, no problem.  Got his driver's license months later.  He is color-blind which disqualified him from the military which is where most commercial pilots get their start.  He attended a university with a good commercial aviation program and learned to fly jets.  He got a job with a regional airline right out of college and now pilots for one of the major carriers.  That is how someone who really loves planes and wants to fly them for a living does it.

So, apparently Debi Pearl wrote another "book," and Jill is thrilled that she will feature Janessa's miraculous recovery. She thinks it will sell a MILLION copies.

Debi Pearl wrote a book on neuroplasticity?? After writing parenting books basically teaching parents to shut down their kids' brains?!

You can't make this shit up.

Duggar friend, Kristen Young, made a blog post and talked about her husband being an alcoholic. I really don't know why these people who have been married 2 seconds give marriage advice and constantly post pictures of their perfect life when they have all these skeletons in the closet.

Oh, not to worry, Debi not only writes about neuroplasticity; she instructs 'Mamas' in how to use neuroplasticity to cure their kids of autism, ADHD and brain damage.  Ain't that great!  A do it yourself at home manual on fixing your kid's brain.  BTW, Debi is not a college graduate and, as far as I know, has absolutely no training or experience in working with children with the neurologic disabilities she writes about.  I suspect 'neuroplasticity' is going to become the new fundie buzzword for blanket training.

So when the parents accidentally hit their babies too hard and cause brain damage they now can buy another Pearl book to fix it again ?

What’s the story of the kid’s brain? 

One of JillR's ultra sounds showed possible signs of damage to Janessa's brain. Nothing definitive. The baby was born with no signs of damage.

JillR has been very vague if any testing was done on Janessa since she was born. I'm guessing she's had tests that proved the in utero diagnosis to be incorrect.

Does anyone live near JRod that can pretend they are interested in their house to go look at it? Just make sure you wear a pink pussy hat, anything rainbow, a nasty woman/BLM/Pro-choice/Human rights/Women's rights shirt, or anything else that would make Jill's head explode. 😉

That appears to be exactly what they're doing. She did mention 3 FULL BA, outbuildings, and that they're 5 minutes from town. No square footage or acerage noted.

That's odd that JillR is selling. I thought her parents and her SEVERELY injured sister just moved nearby.

They must be hurting for money. Mobile homes in FL run pretty cheap. Maybe they will move there.

Saw the listing she put up. On marketplace it shows the location as “approximate”. She needs help with pictures, and location for sure.

Still furnished, very cluttered. She states they  are moving because their “printing ministry is growing SO fast”.

Oshkosh, WI? Did Timothy help with her ad? That's just weird.

Apparently Tim is also selling his car for scrap because of something with the transmission. He's in WI for flight school. He shares (or uses) the family Facebook page and they didn't switch the location before putting up the listing for the house.

Is it just me or does buying a house via Facebook Marketplace sound super sketch?

I'm guessing the Rods have 2 main reasons for trying to sell their house on Facebook Marketplace-- no realtor fees, and the can control who they let in the house and eventually sell it to.  If they list traditionally,  then the home may be shown to a gay couple for example.  I don't think Jill could handle that.

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!

I can imagine them following Nathan and Nurie, expecting Nathan to buy them a big ole house in Florida just like his folks’. Even if they have to share the house with Nathan and Nurie, it’d still be a step up from what they have now. And I’m sure she’ll expect his family to help out with money. After all, they’ll be part of the Keller family now. Can’t have part of the family living in poverty now, can we?  Nice that they have this house to sell that they got for free. It’ll all be profit for them.

Except the Kellers raised 8 or so kids in a double wide mobile home. A home they still live in. I'm guessing JillR makes more with grifting than Pa Keller makes with his prison ministry.

Property taxes in W Virginia are very low. Probably less than $100 a month for the Rod house. If they can't afford that, plus utilities, they're going to find it hard to live any where.

I find it hard to believe the printing "business" has grown to the point of needing more space. And if it actually has grown, then expand the garage.

I guess the RV is less crowded now with the oldest boy gone and Nuri getting ready to be married, but paying to rent a space for the printing equipment is going to run more than $100 a month.

They're probably preying on another old couple with a bigger space, to get their house when they die.

I would think the printing business is on its way out in this day & age, not getting better.  Maybe they bought out another huge tract printing business. (Just kidding)   I'm going with a move to Florida.

Did they grift the house, too? I don't remember how they got it.

That's the rumor.  There are different versions of the story.  One is that Jill's parents owned it and gave it to them.  Another is that they befriended an old lady who was like-minded in her beliefs and she gave it to them for their 'ministry'.  However, from Jill's own blog posts, we know they were homeless and living in the RV when somehow, a beautiful home just fell into their laps because Jesus loves them best.  It was pretty clear that JRod and hubby didn't pay for it; which means it was grifted from someone somewhere.

Yes,I'm guessing the move will enable the grifting.I do hope Nurie n Nathan get their own place, though.

Does anyone have a link to the house they're selling? I couldn't find it on fb marketplace.Thx
