My kids are very similar in age to 3 of hers so I’m almost positive the twins will be 8 in the fall because my oldest will be too. And then my younger son turns 6 in the winter and I think Theo will turn 6 this winter too.Edited by JermajestyDuggar
I worked with a lady who was one of 8 girls and half of them had infertility and the other half had no issues. She and her husband tried for years and it never worked. She ( already a fairly fit woman) went on a fitness helping a friend get into shape.. So over a few months she was exhausted by her new workout regimen, was frustrated at how her belly did not want to flatten but was pleased with how her upper body workouts made her bust look so NICE! One day she walked past me and I ALMOST made a comment about how she LOOKED pregnant.. huge boobs and just a bump of a belly....but knowing their struggles never said a thing...
less then a week later I walk downstairs and walk in on a conversation... The day before her mom made some comments about her boobs and belly and asked if she had taken a test just to be sure.. she cried that her mom was so insensitive so she went and bought a test only to find it say POSITIVE! That morning she called and got an afternoon appt to her Dr- 6 months pregnant!! 2 days after her appt she woke up to a POPPED belly!!!
RC JR only and ever refers to his sins of personal weakness -- Ashley Madison and driving drunk -- when he talks about his scandals. Those are handy for a variety of reasons. They are relatable -- most of us have at least been tempted in the direction of lust or booze. They also allow you draw a bright line by saying you are now faithfully married and sober.
He never mentions being defrocked in 2006 for bullying, lying, ignoring his denomination's own doctrine, and fleecing his congregation. He never mentions that while he is whining for money, his parents' ministry (from which he resigned after his arrest) is still paying him more than a living wage for doing nothing much. (Or at least they were paying last year; maybe they've pulled the plug.) He doesn't mention that his grown children, the people who've known him best close up, are estranged from him and Lisa.
I know that evangelicals love a good redemption story, but he doesn't even tell a good one. No juicy details, no advice -- besides "Jesus" -- for learning to deal with life without booze after all those years, or for rebuilding relationships with people you've hurt.

I’m sure if I ran across James MacDonald or Mark Driscoll my own mind wouldn’t immediately turn to ways they have been used in the kingdom.

Wow, what a beautiful girl Jenni is! The only person I've ever seen adolescence agree with - she looks really at ease in her skin, which tbh I never thought she did as a child. She's always come over as quite unhappy and awkward to me.
