You will fall in love with what you focus on, so we know that Gwen is in love with her stomach.
Examine Your Focus
January 25, 2020
by Gwen Shamblin Lara
Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
I just can’t stress to you enough how important it is to examine your FOCUS. You WILL fall in love with what you focus on! Make it easier to focus on God and Jesus Christ all day long. Learn the stories about God and Jesus that are in the Bible, take notice of the wonderful creation God has offered for us to live in, and seek out other people who are eager to discuss God and His will in their lives. Look for His guiding hand in your life today; it is there. Make a list and count the ways God is your Hero so that you can fall in love with Him and He can become your very best Friend. Stop turning to the food and giving it all your focus! Focus on GOD today and you will feel the difference!
I have never fallen in love with anyone because I made a list.

And I have a feeling the oldest child will be running away years before they even manage the blueprints for the new house. Bella's over the overcrowding and noise already. She'd much rather hang out with goat kids than human ones.
This literally sounds like a satirical description mocking these types of families, except it's real! I looked them up and apparently I've already watched some of their videos without realizing it. I think I need to get off the internet lol.
Another instastory from Jill about their PO Box swag - books for the boys, which is nice for them but she specifically thanks for the free stuff, the ‘fan mail’, er, not so much. Sam is very cute though.

I particularly enjoyed the "Friday Introduction" post today where she spent 95% of the paragraph describing both the clothing she is actually wearing, and other clothing that she could potentially wear on "a good day".
LOL, yeah. Who cares what kind of pants she wears? It's not like her outfits are special in any way.On 1/24/2020 at 12:13 AM, browngrl said:
I am decidedly not a fundie but I have just decorated my home in a way that I think Josie Balka and Charlotte Brandyberry (among other fundies) would heartily approve of. It is all shades of grey (I think the grey I've used for the living room is the same shade of grey Whitney Bates chose). The only pops of colour are muted orange (like Campbell Morton seems to like) or muted mustard/rust (as Charlotte seems to like). I have a sofa that looks a bit like Charlotte's too. It is a very monochrome decor scheme. Well I don't care if the fundies share my decor sensibilities! I love the drab colours - so soothing, so calming. 😀
I didn't want to insult anyone's tastes. Sorry! The way the pictures are framed and edited just seems sad and bland to me (Charlotte's, not Whitney's).Edited by Paperplate

Jessica posted a picture on Instagram today of her and some of her classmates in their uniforms. She is wearing pants in the picture. [...]
I was really surprised to see her in pants as (apart from her interviewing outfit) she still seemed to be frumpers-only. Good for her for apparently realising that wearing pants is totally fine.
about Susannah's boyfriend! I didn't even know she was seeing anyone until her Insta post with him.
