I agree.  That’s the prettiest she’s ever looked IMO.

So many mistakes. Home school fail.

Also shut up and sit down Jill.

I will say that if, by some miniscule chance, Renee actually DID write that, it's a perfect example of a Stockholm Syndrome victim writing about her captor.

Yeah either Jill pretended to be her daughter and wrote an ode to herself or her poor daughter just really wants a fucking extra sip of Plexus, so she caved and wrote Mommy want she wants to hear. Both are incredibly fucked up in their own way, though I'm sure Jill will come here and read the snark and decide she needs to write an ode to Mommy from every single one of her kids to show the heathens how wonderful she is.

“Soul winning?”  Is that what they call God-bothering random people in laundromats? 🙄

In the vintage Bates photo I think Josie is on the left beside Zach, Carlin in the middle, then Katie.  Josie looks mortified.  Those dresses were an abomination.

It's certainly possible Jill wrote it. But I think it's also quite possible that Renee wrote it. You can be pretty easily brainwashed into becoming an unconscious parrot of another person, especially when that person gets to start brainwashing you from the instant you're born. And Jill is nothing if she's not one of the most determined brainwashers on the planet. 

Either way, very very very sad for Renee and the rest of the Rod clan. 

Kinda makes me think  of the line from Blake -- "Pity would be no more if we did not make somebody poor." In this case, pity would be no more if we didn't have people who determinedly believe that parents' job is to deprive kids of their individual personhood. 

Hella depressing whichever way this goes.

Why does Renee know about the hate and criticism JillR "suffered at the hands of"? Is it happening in real life too? Or just on the internet? If its just on the internet then JillR should keep her mouth shut and not involve her kids.

Don't you get the feeling that Jill may treat her kids to a literally unceasing litany of the evils she suffers from all the ungodly of the world? I can't imagine her shutting up about it. She probably even believes that telling them about it is part of her "mission" and their "education" at SOTDRT.

And I doubt she has any actual adult friends to bitch to about it -- Looks to me as if, among the adult crowd, she really has nothing but donors.....

Well now Jillcatraz is looking for husbands for the next St Jude models. Maybe Keller’s don’t want the last son to marry into the Rods. The Duggar’s most likely passed which is a shame. The Rod kids are so brainwashed no way they are leaving the Gothard religion.

Or Jill got kicked out of Starbucks for doing nails.

I kind of think the Gothard cult may just not have been on the Rods' (somewhat limited) spending agenda. Gothardism seems to ask for (and ask for and ask for and ask for) a pretty endless stream of cash for various "services" and "products" after you join.....

And I'd think the relatively low-income Rods -- headed by their own personal cult guru Jill -- may have figured that it was a better use of their somewhat limited funds to traipse around to churches and churchpeople who'd give them stuff (and bucks) rather than joining any group that wanted payments......And that Jill also figured she and David were far above needing any of the "assistance" the Gothard groups claim to provide for child rearing, marriage managing and "education." 

After all, Gothard's selling proposition has always been that he and his stuff-for-sale will help you succeed in chaining up your children (and, to a lesser extent, your wife) and getting them to serve your personal interests eternally. Whereas, Jillcatraz  (OMG, @galaxychaser) doesn't seem to have had much of a struggle with the children-chaining ever, at all. (despite the hints she's dropped about Tim's allegedly intractable nature growing up).

 And despite her ridic love notes about godly-head-of-house David, I can't see her wanting to join a group where elevation of the husband to boss status was such a big part of the agenda etiher. She's willing to pretend to go along with that. But it's obvious that, um, no....not at their house. in their barn and RV.

No rest for poor JillR, she’s gotta grift and find godly husband for notNurie and save people at the Laundromat, plus sell all that Plexus. I’m sure the kids all hear about the Devil who is out to get them constantly so I wouldn’t be surprised they can easily spout it in a post. On Jill’s instagram.

It looks like they intended Nurie's hair to look like that for the wedding.  I'm still shaking my head over that.  The bangs just falling over her face and the too tight curls that still looked wrong even as they fell out.

The dress itself doesn't fit badly for a fundie fit of a sleeved dress, but those sleeves just aren't right.  They kind of ruin the rest of what works.  

What really gets me is that photo of everyone behind the garden trellis of a wedding arch.  Aren't you supposed to stay in front of the arch so the guests can see?

Her new father in law said it was the prettiest wedding dress he had ever seen..

He also suffers from an unnamed medical condition which causes him to perpetually think it is the late 1980's/early 1990's. 

I was in my late teens/early twenties when all 3 of my older sisters were married.  Now I hope (even at that age), that I wasn't an overly selfish person who wouldn't be able to see the good deeds of others.  That being said, never did I publicly acknowledge my Mom's involvement in the weddings with some over the top show of praise and recognition.  My Mom, not being of the attention-whore type, would have taken me to the doctor had I done that.  It's just not a natural way of thinking at that age, in my opinion.  That was either Jill crafted or SEVERELY Jill motivated. A nice post in Nurie's honor would have made much more sense.  Get to work on that, Jill.

Also, Jill "loves unconditionally"?  Hey, Renee - let's take this out for a spin!  Tell your sweet, persecuted, selfless Momma that you want to go to trade school and learn how to be a plumber.  Let's see that unconditional love in action!

Man, Renee sure does love the ratted hair.  Does she have a bump-it hiding in there?  Good thing she'll never see Snookie in her original form.  It would be just the inspiration she needs!

I hope that isn't the case and hopefully Nathan will not let that happen. . I think she is a lovely young woman who would look better with about 20 lbs on her frame.
