    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I don’t see an issue with the toothbrush reward either. I mean, it is Paw Patrol and it looked kind of fancy. I’d rather that than candy. He’s young, and that toothbrush may be the motivator he needs to willingly brush at least twice a day. Izzy looked so proud; he must have picked which one he wanted. I guess I’m Team Jill today, but I think it’s one of her better moves. ETA: My hormones are all over the place today, so maybe that explains my leniency.

    I guess I’m in the minority here, but the pic doesn’t bother me too much. All our pics growing up in the 80s looked like that, and I appreciate the simplicity. It looks like an actual candid photo of a mom playing outside with her children. What’s wrong with that? Maybe I wouldn’t post it, but it looks like someone (I assume Deertick) saw them and wanted to get a quick snap of the moment. I’ll take this over Jeremy and Jessa’a heavily staged photos anyday. There’s nothing natural or endearing about retaking the same photo five times to get the best shot. The mere fact that Spurge knows how to hold the pose lets you know he’s going to grow into a sickening kid if Jessa doesn’t watch out. ETA: Everyone’s hair is clean, their clothes fit and match, and the boys are getting fresh air and exercise. Kudos to Jill (can’t believe I just said that) for not sitting around the TTH all day.

    Heavy boobs will do it. I wore an I cup (yes, an I) before my reduction and lift. Once that healed, my posture improved instantly.

    Jinger is significantly shorter than Jeremy, but I wonder if it her posture is some kind of subconscious effort to appear meek, petite and submissive? You know, all the things Gothard teaches a desirable woman and wife should be. In this and other pictures, it’s like she doesn’t want to appear strong or confident which standing straight would convey.

    Someone should introduce her to posture bras or a good waist trainer that’ll straighten her up. She’s too young for that. With the posture and all the hair, she looks like an oak tree in saturated ground; she’s ready to tip at any moment.
  7. When I looked at the picture, I thought of that rule. That Jay guy on America’s Top Model was a stickler for this. She should have worn a neutral, coral or nude lip color.

    Jinger really should work on her posture. It’s atrocious!

    Those were my exact workds when i saw the picture!
  10. Jessa’s hair color is what Harlan Coben would describe as chipmunk brown.

    To answer why so many unqualified men choose to be pastors, I can only answer from my background. In the African-American Baptist churches I grew up in in the deep south, pastors were either the son of a pastor, or they felt a calling on their lives from God. Needless to say those that felt the calling were generally the better pastors. Learning to preach was part of the skill, but so where the theatrics involved, which is why you could visit another church or attend a revival and hear similar inflections in tone, a common tempo, etc. Nowadays, and even a few scoundrels back then got into ministry for power, prestige and money. Do not underestimate the earning potential of a prosperity pastor of a mega church. My sister attended Leroy Thompson’s church and he has a private jet. And I love my church, but I know my pastor is in the six figures. To his credit, he’s an awesome pastor though. Being a pastor also comes with people at your every beck and call, adoration, access to women (yes, it happens), a tremendous amount of authority, and the ability to inject yourself into people’s personal decisions. These young guys with stars in their eyes aren’t considering all the time you spend with the sick and shut in, funerals, dealing with the deacons and board of trustees, drama from the choir (because there’s always drama from the choir), managing the different ministries, being available around the clock, dealing with complaints and issues, keeping butts in the pews, creating and delivering educational but moving sermons, attending to and being responsible for each member’s spiritual wellbeing, keeping the collection plate full to maintain and grow the chuch, all while trying to maintain your own life and family. They’re not interested in any of those things. It’s all money, fancy suits and having the largest flock. My uncle is a preacher, not a pastor, and it’s demanding even for him. I like to think you need to be called to that profession, not apply because you are interested.

    Because that whole “faith without works is dead” doesn’t apply to them 🙄

    That’s why I’d rather have Derick over Jeremy if I was masochistic and had to interact with either of these blowholes on anything religious or political. At least you know what you’re getting with Derick.
