    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    I found her on the OK board of nursing. She's an LPN and her license is active.

    I'm so impressed with this community's efficiency with internet background checks.

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    He's dating an educated, working woman his age? I think this is the first Duggar courtship I've actually been really pleased to hear about.

    I make a funny? I make a funny!
  8. Hi, folks! After some years away from FJ (how did that happen?), I got curious about Jill the supreme narcissist. So I started about where I’d left off, looking at her blog, Facebook and the threads on FJ. It took a few weeks, but I’ve zoomed through: Whew! Stranger than fiction. As someone else pointed out (sorry I've forgotten who), she said she'd take the GoFundEverythingIEverWanted down on Friday, but didn't say which Friday. According to this site, December 26, 2025 is a Friday -- maybe that's her goal date: https://www.calendar-365.com/2025-calendar.html It's good to be back!

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    My husband and I didn't have sex before our wedding night and we are dealing with infertility. We had each had sex prior to our relationship (although, just one time for me), so we weren't anywhere close to Michael & Brandon. But physical intimacy was probably still the hardest part of our marriage early on and we had a lot of insecurity wrapped up in it. It's actually why we waited starting to try until we did (almost 2.5 years into marriage), because we wanted to have a better sex life before adding the pressure. But no matter how good your communication around sex and quality of your physical intimacy, infertility does a number on it. We actually took this month off treatment because the pressure was getting to us. I don't think I can describe what it feels like month after month to try and get yourself in the mood again during crucial times. IUI in the morning and sex in the evening is the worst. I was never shy with my husband about my cycles before we started trying, but you pretty quickly get to a point of 100% communication about it. My husband knows more about ovulation than most of my girl friends! Men struggle with infertility too, and I'm sure Brandon is fully up-to-speed on things. There is even about a 40% chance that their infertility has a male-factor component, so he might even be the one being treated. The process does overtake you. It's impossible to go through infertility without times of being overwhelmed and despairing. And it's really hard to do that in light of Christian faith too. I have to deal with people's insensitive "prayers" for us all the time. Just the other day my cousin sent me a fb message about how God has a plan, if only the waiting weren't so hard. Bitch, you had a baby 40 weeks after we started trying to conceive and that happened even with your tubes tied! And the jealousy is real, guys. It's all-encompassing sometimes. I have had someone pregnant in my church small group the entire time I've been trying. My church only has about 70 people and at least four couples are expecting right now. But I know Michael has more pregnant bellies around her than I can ever imagine. I do not envy her that. But I do envy her Illinois health insurance! Assuming they aren't on medshare or something (big assumption), insurance in IL is required to cover infertility treatments. She could even do something like NaPro, since they probably wouldn't do IVF.

    It's required by IBLP law to mention the years you spent not noticing your GF existed, despite her attending every social function you do, before God let the scales fall from your eyes and made you fall in true, enduring, monogamous love with her instantly. If you leave that out of your courtship story, then you get sent to Gothard jail.

    Lori Alexander 50: Making an Idol of Herself

    Guyyysss Omgosh I got offered for a clinician job!!! With benefits! And I get to stay in my current town which is what I was praying for. I'd start the day before I have to move out of my current apartment lol. Y'all know before my parents because they aren't answering their phones. It's a huge relief because at 25 I've never had a full time job with benefits,because school was always a priority, and was scared of I'd never get one. Haha bad self-esteem and perfectionism talking.
  12. Guys I got a job. It isn't a great job. But it's a decent part time job doing what I know how to do. I swallowed my crushing anxiety and walked in off the street and they hired me on the spot. Out of a lot of candidates.
  13. So this might get lost in all of the excitement, but I followed the Burnett's for years (prior to the blog scrub) and can share a few meaty tid bits. - They do wear pants, as they live on a farm. As someone shared above, they make peach jelly and ice cream for a yearly peach festival. They would blog about it frequently. It seemed to be the highlight of their year and was a whole family effort. - It appears most pants wearing occasions occurred when they were working in the yard or on hikes, etc. They definitely used common sense with clothing. Though, looking at the recent picture of their daughter (the photographer), my guess is they have come to a point where pants just might be their preferred choice of clothing. - They are HUGE on family. Many of their posts discussed games nights, camping trips, special dinners, and work projects together. -They are not a singing/ performance group (such a breathe of fresh air!) - Their oldest sons John-Clay and Caleb moved out of the house before getting married. They lived together, but I still found the whole thing to be very interesting and very non- ati approved. - They always posted about the yearly ATI family camp. I get the feeling they were very much involved in the program, but not super strict with all the rules/ made the rules fit into their own family. - Abbie has been working in nursing for quite some time. During the blog years, I think it mostly talked about her working towards getting her degree, etc. But she was always photographed in scrubs (I never saw a skirt) and with other scrub wearing females. I think it's a legit degree. - The oldest daughter had children right away and in close succession, as well as the son's wife (John- Clay I think it is). So maybe the open womb/ leave children to God could be something some or all of the children hold firm to as a belief. I guess time with tell with Abbie and JD. - They are

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    I'm actually really excited about this! Super happy that Abbie isn't a child bride. John chose an age appropriate woman (26 years old praise the Lord!) so props for that! I also like that she doesn't have a fake soft-spoken baby voice when she speaks like Kendra and Lauren. She seems a great fit for JD so far. I'm truly stunned that this day has finally come!

    Mr & Mrs Jill Duggar 60: The Shilling Dillards

    I’m in New England and Jill’s outfit is pretty normal attire here too for warm weather. If you have to say you aren’t trying to bash someone for doing something, you likely are about to or just have bashed them. I honestly am so confused by your post though. Jill is dressed fairly appropriately for the weather and occasion (hiking.) The sole issue I have with the outfit are her sandals, but even those are a million times better than wearing flip flops for hiking. And since you mentioned Jinger, here’s a comparison: Both are showing their knees and shoulders. Jill’s top is lower cut, but Jinger’s outfit is much more fitted to her body. Both are dressed 100% appropriately for the weather and activities they’re about to enjoy (hiking and tennis.) Jill looks fine. Jinger looks fine. Can we focus on criticizing these young women for their dangerous beliefs rather than shaming them for wearing appropriate outfits they feel comfortable wearing?

    JRod 65: Money for Nothin' and New Cars for Free

    Sorry to thread away from the thread drifts. I just finished reading all the news about the accident and the saga that followed. Man I wish each and every Rod kid will be able to escape one day. JRod doesn't deserve any of them. I'm so sad for all the brainwashing and abuse that's going on over there for years and years and years. -sorry in advance for broken English, I'm tired- Last Monday there was a tragic car accident that was front news here in The Netherlands. A car had droven into a group of people after a three day music festival that is really major in our country and just a few minutes away of where I grew up. When I read the news in the morning, nothing was clear as to if it was a terrorist attack or an accident. The only thing that was clear, was that one person was killed and three others were in critical condition. I was very distressed and kept reassuring myself that "what would be the odds that of all the 70.000 visitors, there is someone involved that I know?". Around noon, there was a press conference live on tv where they announced more details. The mini van that had droven into the group of people was found abandoned, and the driver had called himself in to the police. Then they stated the ages and hometowns of the victims. Well shit, chances were getting slightly bigger that I might actually know someone, but still these chances were extremely small. Some hours later I refreshed the news on my phone and there my fear became reality. The guy that had died was a former short-term boyfriend of mine. We had a thing over fifteen years ago and we didn't have contact anymore since then, but still I was so shocked to have this build-up all day, and than *BAM* you see this name on your screen and you try to catch your breath. I cried hard, was comforted by my girlfriend and I called my mom to share the news. She cried too. We cried over someone we knew a long time ago. I celebrated my 32nd birthday last Saturday and still have all the decorations up. The contrast with my friend's death couldn't have been bigger. All week I have been feeling humble and grateful to be alive and have been feeling compassion for all his loved ones, and for the victims still fighting for their lives in the hospital. As I have been reading though all the threads concerning the Rod's accident, I simply cannot fathom the way JRod is handling all of this. She is (and I'm sorry, not sorry) A HUGE ASS BITCH, A PISS POOR EXCUSE FOR A MOTHER, AND A KUTWIJF!! (yes, that last one is a Dutch curse word). You hear that Jill? I'm talking about you! Free all the Rod kids. ps: I wrote this merely to show the contrast between a relatively normal human being, and Jill. Not trying to be overly dramatic with my own story. It's just very recent and real for me. pps: my sincere condolences to the poster who lost her best friend in a car accident this week. Your story is heart wrenching. My you find strength and love to cope with this tragic event in your life.
  17. Timothy is getting ready to go off to school, off to school, to prove to Jill that he's not a fool. Meanwhile, Jill doesn't really understand how actual school works or what constitutes a good test score. Continued From: No one knows what the future holds, but it's comforting in times of insecurity to know that no matter what Jill posts, this will probably be my response to it: Mrs. Rodrigues, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
  18. if God didn't give people more than they could handle-- no one would have to choose between buying groceries and paying the light bill. no one would go bankrupt over medical bills. and D-Rod would have been able to handle working on Fridays.

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    Long time reader, first time poster. It's a little intimidating to post here in not my native language but I would like to put forward a different perspective that I have not heard yet: with their skills, flying and nursing, they could be the perfect couple for their so-called humanitarian overseas mission trips. I hope I'm wrong.

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    No! I had secretly given away a piece of my heart to John David! Now if Seattle Mariner Dee Gordon won't have me, I'll be utterly lost!! I know he's a Duggar, but he can't help that. Otherwise, JD seems to be a good guy who works hard. Well done, Abbie. You may have snagged the only fundie guy I would consider worth snagging.

    JRod 66: Jilly Madison

    I've clearly been spending too much time thinking about the Duggars because my first thought was that the thread title was an Ashley Madison reference.

    John David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett

    If this courtship leads to marriage and Abbie is ok with it, it would be really fun to see pranks by each sibling JD pranked at their own wedding. Also...sorry FJ-ers...remember when we were super excited about Derick? And Jeremy? I want to be hopeful since JD seems a little different than many of the other stay-at-home-sons and Abbie seems different than Kendra/Lauren/Anna but...they are both still super fundie. Make sure to have ferrets on stand-by in case JD and AG disappoint!
  23. Jill video (cont) *God is not dumb and will not give you more than you can handle. God will stop it if you can't handle it. She mentions infertility again, and goes nowhere with it, which makes it seem like she's insinuating if you are infertile it's because God decided people that struggle to conceive "can't handle it". Jill has big crazy eyes and demands which one of her children she should "give back" if you don't like her big family. *Jill accuses other Christians of professing faith but then cutting off having eleventy kids. Haivng a lot of kids is a threat to Satan....and.....to the LBTQ movement. (?? That is never elaborated on, thank the lord). Jill starts quoting the Bible, still frothing. She's practically sparking while imitating people talking about having too many kids. *People shouldn't be ashamed to be quiverful. God chose to give them a zillion kids, and if you don't like it, then you are offended by God. Jill says if you're really pro-life you won't prevent pregnancies. Maybe sometimes people need to use natural ways to prevent for health reasons, and Jill is very "gracious" to people that don't do it her way. But people aren't gracious back to her...she compares herself to Jesus and persecuted people. *Blah blah blah. Pharisees. God's Word. Lots of Jill pointing accusingly into the camera. She makes no apologies, because she's right. Blah blah. God's arrows. Says quiverful again. Doopty doopty doo, have a billion babies so Christians can raise a mighty generation. *Be nice to people with a bunch of kids that beg for money. *And buy Plexus. *end
