Kids, cats, dogs and my life.

I am now 43 (yikes!) and time is moving too fast for my liking.  Most day's I don't feel grown up enough to be an adult lol.

My son is now 26 and after finishing college decided not to join the army but got himself a good job with plenty of opportunity for career progression and has already moved up in his company and is currently working from home like lot's of people due to covid.

The kiddo is turning 13 next week and is finally back in school full time after lockdown 2 here. They came out as gender neutral to me last week and although they were nervous I am so happy they were comfortable enough to tell me. I will never reject my kids and as long as they are happy that's what matters most to me.  They have kept up with drawing and has come on leaps and bounds since the day's of foxy.  

Alfie cat is now 7 (how did the time pass that quickly!) and still likes to pull dvd's out of the unit and steal my seat if he get's the chance.  I also got myself a dog.  Her name is Luna, but will answer to Lunatic and Lulu. She is 4 and is a chihuahua, I got her when she was 8wks old and although I had wanted a dog for a while I chose to get her as it coincided with my pain management course and was my way of helping to gently up my exercise without flaring up my fibro by doing too much too soon.  She has been a god send during lockdown for me as it made me get up off my backside and go out to walk her.

      In my area, the evangelical and prosperity churches preach politics but it isn't right in any church that is tax exempted because of it being a house of worship. 


      I agree 100%. It’s beyond frustrating that churches get away with it. Flaunt it even, as if they are untouchable.

      I find the Calvinist belief that God actively chooses who goes to Heaven, and thus who goes to Hell absolutely repugnant. (I've seen Calvinists claim that God only chooses people to go to Heaven and everyone else was going to Hell anyway so it wasn't God's choice, but come on, it's the same thing as him choosing who goes to Hell.) Now, if you believe in an all-powerful God and believe in Hell then at some point you have to reckon with the fact that God could prevent people from going to Hell (and if you don't believe in Hell then there's still earthly suffering that presents the same problem), but Calvinism is just so direct about it in a way I find incredibly offputting. They really believe that God chose them to be saved and chose a bunch of other people to suffer in Hell for eternity, whereas I feel like the Arminian outlook is a lot kinder in that they don't think it's God's plan for anyone to go to Hell, but sin happens. (Again, I know this presents logical issues as well, but I still prefer it to Calvinism.)

      (Also, I should mention that I'm not a Christian and don't actually believe in either anymore.)

      On a shallow level too, I just find the new Reformed crowd unbearably obnoxious. They tend to be so pretentious and really into this image of themselves as cultured intellectuals.

      It actually surprises me that they’d outline the level of control JB had. Jeremy, at least, should be aware of how weird and controlling it looks, and that it’s bad for their brand.

      I honestly wonder what his parents thought and if it raised red flags for them. As a mother, I don’t want to control my kid’s lives, but if they got involved in something like this I’d be voicing my concerns.

      4. Josh was caught looking at porn during his dad's campaign. He was probably discovered when one of the younger kids saw him look at porn and innocently ratted him out. He was made to confess in front of the church with a big emphasis on humiliating him as much as possible. He was sent to a church member's home to "dig out a pond"--apparently something that's done in Arkansas for homes with ponds that don't hold water. The sludge is dug out with a shovel. Josh was isolated in a building on the man's property (the man lived nearby and brought him meals but didn't talk to him) for weeks while he was digging. The church got reports on him each week. When Josh returned, he acted very cocky.

      5. TLC was filming the Duggars at this time, but very little was said to them about Josh's porn use. Josh was brought back to the home for the filming. 

      6. The people in their church did not know about the molestations.

      Okay, 4 and 6 make way more sense to me than the idea that he confessed to the whole church about the molestations and they all knew. Obviously some people outside the family knew about the molestations, but I've always thought it was a lot fewer than often assumed, definitely far from being the open secret in the community that I've seen claimed before.

      Sarah (Stelzl) Shultz has been married for more than two years now, and still no baby (her Instagram is public). She is in her mid-late 20s. Her family is very prominent in the IBLP circles, and the FEW conferences circles (good friend with the Staddons, the Neelys, and the Wilkeses), and she's also attended Jill Duggar's wedding. Her family's blog hasn't been active in years. Does anyone here have info?
