I just looked at Instagram. Jill did not post if anyone fasted. 

Check out how happy the kid is to sit between the grandparents.

Maybe grandma brought enough desserts and ice cream for everyone.

Nah, we remembered the chicken story that @doodlebug just recounted and ran with it. 😀

From a 2016 blog post by Jill:

Timothy had chosen to fast about his future as he approaches his adult life in the next couple of years.  He wants God’s direction and peace about exactly what God would have him to do once he graduates from high school.  He has his sights set on some specific things for his future, but he does not want to press ahead without his parents or without God’s approval.  I was THRILLED beyond measure to see Timothy’s desire to draw nigh unto God in his own personal walk.  He continues to have fasting as a part of his weekly schedule now.

For all the "crying" she does over the Bible, I wonder if all the tears in Jill's eyes prevented her from reading the ninth commandment.

I think it's quite possible that Jill writes this stuff. But I also think it's possible she's brainwashed the kids to the point that they automatically write like her.

At one point I taught one of two high-school "creative writing" classes and another teacher taught the other section. He was kind of a control-freaky guy, and I swear every kid in his class came out writing exactly like him. It was horrifyingly clear from the stuff kids submitted to the literary magazine. 

So you can pick up a writing style by osmosis from a determined indoctrinator. Even in a semester or two. And these poor kids have had JIll's indoctrination pouring into them for a lifetime.

The things "Kaylee" says seem to cover things people have questioned about Jill's parenting.  According to "Kaylee" Jill parents her own children and cooks delicious meals for them.  She also works tirelessly to minister to others.  Not buying it!

Jill also could have been the one to type Kaylee's ode to Mamma.  Kaylee is still under Jill and David's umbrella of protection, so I can't see Jill allowing Kaylee too much time on the computer.

My first thought was: Did JillRod write herself a love letter?

It's most definitely Jill's style.

I thought Jill wrote it as a tribute to her mother when I first started reading it. Then I got to the part about Mom checking on the babies during the night & scrolled up &  saw the picture of Jill & Kaylee.

I think iPhone 11 pro is more than $1000. Maybe she is leasing it?

I almost posted last night that I thought Tori was pregnant. I wasn't sure she just was having trouble losing the weight, and I didn't want to fat-shame. She looked pregnant to me in the latest photos. I'm surprised they already know it's a boy, but I hope that's accurate and the girl streak is broken.

The baby is due in April so Tori must be 3 months along already. Kade and Kolter will be 18 months apart. I was thinking they're doing a K theme, yet I believe Kade is a nickname of some sort.

I see "her" posts as an advertisement for someone to come out and "court" her children because they have the bestest, bestest family in the WORLD. Everything Jill does is for self promotion and I do agree that Jill wrote that because she needs to shed  children to marriage.

Mr. Six got the 11 Pro Max a few weeks ago.  It was $1249 before trade in.  Apple has two ways to finance.  You can apply for the Apple Card, which will earn you 3% back on Apple purchases, but the interest rate starts at ~16%.  They also have a credit card that will give you 0% interest for 24 months.  For families that tout the "correct" & simple way of living, they seem to enjoy the finer things.  Too bad they can't take that money and get new personalities (or in Michelle's case, a backbone).

Okay, is anyone else curious about what Satan has been doing to the Rods lately that has led to "Kaylee" thanking her mom for, as I read it, cooking and doing a heck of a lot of God-bothering (yaaaaaay, as other Jill would say) and the whole clan to be praying and crying over pies in the local Burger King? As usual, I'm caught somewhere between giggles and tears just picturing it.

Another actual friend (a man) argued her skirts-only stance. She deleted all the dissent, leaving about half of the posts that had originally been there. 

Sadly, this went down on her private page, so no screenshots. Boo!

Holy crap! JRod uses the same pediatrician group my kids went to when they were little. (They are 23,26 and 28 now.). 

They are an excellent group of docs. The male doc in the practice was the one the kids saw, as well as the two older female docs if ours wasn’t in.  They are all knowledgeable about their field. I miss seeing my kid’s old doctor, and we still send him a Christmas card.
