Well, the other ones pictured have husbands and children.  So sisters take a back seat to selfies and poultry and chicken shilling.

Plus....Did everybody here but me also know that it was National Sisters Day? ....

Thinking that, what with the children and all, the others may not even know such a day exists.

And that most people other than Jana don't? Or at least a lot of people. I sure didn't. (National Brothers Day, I now know, is sometime in May, if you're wondering.)

Is that Jill between Jana and Jessa? She looks weird in that pic. The only thing that confirmed her identity for me is the forehead wrinkles. Not a good thing for someone in their 20s...

Given the extent of abuse being brought to light in the Duggar's circle, they should adopt rules like the modern Catholic Church.  I have volunteered as a chaperone for youth events and I had to undergo diocesan mandatory training on abuse.  On an overnight trip, I am not allowed to sleep in the same room as the children--this goes for both males and females.  On one trip, the adults had their own separate shower.  My mom just got back from a church trip where she almost had to sleep in the same room as the other male chaperones whom she barely knew.  And this is all done in the name of keeping the kids safe.  

Jana should not be sharing a room and bathroom with her younger sisters.  

With all due respect I wouldn't hold the Catholic Church as an exemplar of keeping kids safe - even in 2019.

Also, why shouldn't Jana be sharing a bathroom with her younger siblings?

Yes I agree with you. I would like Jana to have her own bedroom and bathroom for her own comfort and privacy, because she’s a 30 years old woman, but her sharing one with her little sisters doesn't make her little sisters less safe from abuse. 

After what Josh did, I 100% think Jana is there with the girls safety in mind. I think she trusts JD 100% (being her twin and all, and a teenager too when Josh was being a predator) but the other boys not so much. Not saying she believes one of them would hurt the girls, but she knows how her parents handled it and wouldn’t want history to repeat itself.

I just wish Jana had the power to decide for herself without worrying about consequences for the younger girls.  And if she thought there were no threats and she wanted her own space she could have it

In no way am I trying to demean your faith itself, but the Catholic Church is about the last place I would look for suggestions on how to keep children safe.

It looks weird because of the grain.  Either Jessa doesn't have a steady phone-camera hand, or someone took a picture-of-a-picture of a printed paper photograph and uploaded that.

That first pic is from a few years ago, isn't it? Jana and Jessa look better than they do now, Jinger looks worse, and Jill looks almost unrecognizable. I had to look at the teeth and gums to confirm it was Jill.

I think the photo is generally unflattering to all of them in the way that most selfies are.  Nobody looks that good from 6 inches away.

I don't think Jana is boring or bland. She's the only one at home who has a creative outlet. Whether you like her decorating or not, at least she's doing something. She has a garden that is also kept neat and decorated; she has an outside area for relaxing. To me, this means she reading and/or watching videos to learn how to do these things. The rest of the adult Duggars seemingly do nothing all day. Even the younger Duggars don't seem to have any interests beyond what JimBob and Michelle deem important. Jana has worked within that system to find ways to grow.

Aren't those cutesy signs over yet?  The Duggars always seem to latch onto things after they have peaked.  

Personally, I don't need a sign to tell me to eat in the kitchen, or remind me of the definition of family.  I wonder what the next trend is going to be?  I feel that succulents are nearing the end of their 15 minutes... 😄

I thought that too as soon as I saw grape festival. But don't these people believe that the first miracle performed by Jesus was to turn water into unfermented grape juice or some such nonsense?  I totally agree about those tacky signs. Hoping now that the Gaines are non longer filming their show these signs will disappear along with barn doors.

Don't forget you can decorate your bathroom with a photo of your parents like Jill did in the past.

Okay, who is Jed?   I thought I had an idea who everyone was, but I don't keep up with them outside of the show and this forum.  I have managed to miss Jed.   Thanks in advance for the info.

Is Jed, Jedidiah?  in that case, I guess I know.    Nebbermind.

I like the signs in French. And I have a “Flower Market” sign on my deck next to, you know, flowers. 

Jed is a twin. Jer is quite cute at the moment and not balding. I think Jed is cute because I like tall men and he seems taller than all of them. The sign for Michelle makes me sad because he’s still sheltered enough to think that he was cool buying that for his mom.

Some 30 plus years ago I bought my mom a small framed poem about family, done in calligraphy.

I'm laughing my ass of now, because thinking back, she hung it in the bathroom.

Oops. ETA. I am relating this to the topic of signs as art and placement of said art. I agree that the Duggar homes look like the aisles in Hobby Lobby.

IMO, Jana's SM is trying to make herself look like she is the type of person who has fun; which is a step up from most of the Duggars but also looks really strange to us, because we're not used to it.  Also, she's clearly not a tremendously skilled actress (lol).

Hmm. So, who's taking those photos? Obviously they aren't selfies, and they're certainly above average as to composition, lighting, and editing. 

ETA: Whoever it is, Jill needs that kind of skill for her SM clothes-shilling snaps.

What weird composition! Holding a box of grapes in front of a ferris wheel does not compute for me. I guess she's standing in that position and smiling because she's supposed to be playing a game, but it's no wonder she lost if she played while clutching her grapes. Looks pretty but makes no sense.
