That is super lame. Her mom doesn’t rate her own message, just a mention when Jill is mass addressing random moms on social media. That seems like a big F U and total after thought.

It’s selfish and rude, but maybe Jill’s mom is not on SM.

I'm also confused. It looked like Easter decorations, but we're a month out from Easter. And it looks like one of the balloons says "Mother" on it like it's a Mother's Day balloon. Maybe they didn't take down the decorations in the church basement.

Nurie's wearing a corsage in the Nathan photos, which I assumed was on actual Mother's Day since she looks more pregnant there than in the Mrs. K photo.

some with more experience with extreme fundie churches can possibly answer this - do they observe the weeks after Easter until Pentecost? The evangelical church I worked for did and left easter decor up until then. The first sunday after Easter/Resurrection sunday, etc until Pentecost. Which is May 23rd this year.

I have no idea on the Keller church beliefs on that.

but I am really thinking they did a super early baby shower without Jilly and the Rod family circus

Ouch. Jilly will have to decide if the Keller church should do a second shower with the Rods in attendance, or if she should make Nurthan come to Ohio for a shower there. Both?  

Jill is eagerly awaiting a new addition to the barndo, and she has a list of furniture and decor Barndo Jr. will need.

Now, now.  Jill is very generous with her kids.  Remember the Easter egg hunt?  One of the kids got a hollow chocolate rabbit of her very own!  I'm sure the others got to watch her eat it, too.

This infuriates me. I had 5 kids and some years we really struggled, but my kids all got the same amount of treats. The only unevenness was hunting eggs, but that's because we'd get 5 dozen at Costco, so each kid got a dozen to color, and we hid them. The bigger kids found more, but nobody cared b/c everyone could have all the hard boiled eggs they wanted.

Same. Some years for us were rough, but I always made sure my kids did not suffer. And they got the same amount of treats. I can't even imagine giving one treats or a present, and not the other. That is just so mean.

Me,too.Add to that the Rods just got a big stimulus check,and they could've easily afforded a $1 treat for each child.Even one for the older ones,too

But, did your kids have a beautiful new grandfather clock to admire purchased for the living area that isn't even built yet?  I am sure Jill's kids told her they didn't want any Easter candy, it was sweet enough just seeing the World's Best Momma have a clock for a room that didn't exist.

I hate the fact that Jill's barndo is stuffed full of all her ugly knickknacks, and her closet is stuffed full of all her gifted stuffed animals.  But there is no evidence anywhere that 13(!!!) kids have lived in any of Jill's houses.  No toys!

When I had little kids, I didn't have much in the way of decorations because there were toys everywhere.

My son is an adult but I have a cat and his toys are all over the house!

There is more evidence of my mother's dog here than that Jill has children in the house.  I should motivate myself to go pick up at least some of his stuff and replace the pillows he's thrown around.  I can only understand Jill as she relates to my deceased MIL.  She would go shopping for a birthday present for someone and spend 5 times as much on herself.   She did at least buy presents for people.

Maybe it's Shrek's for the times he's in a hurry to escape the love nest. 

As for gifts, do we know what Jill and Shrek gave Nurie and Nathan as a wedding gift? They paid for the wedding, but it was very low budget, the major expense being Jill's and the older daughters' new dresses. Even if they couldn't afford a big gift, a handmade quilt would have been nice. Maybe something sentimental like a couple of Jill's Willow Tree figures or a selection from the stuffed Teddy Bear shelf. There's also the water heater flammable decoration collection. 

Or probably nothing but the promise that the RV of Rods will descend on Nurthan's house for a month of babysitting and free restaurant meals.

I truly believe that, in her mind, JRod thinks she’s famous.  That’s how delusional she is.  She’s posted a bunch of videos on FB of Phillip preaching Sunday night.  WTH does she think that anyone wants to listen to him?  Because she’s famous!  That’s why her entire life is posted on SM.  She thinks that everyone is interested in her because she’s so special and popular.

I think Jill justifies her bragging by seeing herself as a prime example of leading a godly life. All of her social media posts are about showing the heathens how living according to the correct version of the Bible means you are so #blessed. Except for the days when she wants to proclaim how #persecuted she is by the same heathens. 

So I guess we can blame her social media addiction on the heathens too.

She’s just like the Duggars. Neither realize that “modest” refers to more than just appearance.

Right.She's trying to get what the popular girls in school got,as she didn't go to school.Ppl like Jill will always find a way to get attention.

If she weren't fundie,I'd see Jill as being a cheerleader in HS,and trying to date all the football players
