Jennifer McKinney (MckMama)

Recommended Posts

Summary provided by:ceg045

Jennifer Sauls McKinney, commonly known as MckMama, is a high-profile Christian “mommy blogger” from Minnesota. She is married to Israel McKinney, a contractor, and together they have five children: Kieran (also known as Big Mac), Cullen (also known as Nuggey), Maisy (also known as Small Fry), Stellan, and Lachlan (also known as Flurry). She first gained national attention in 2008, as she documented her high-risk pregnancy with Stellan. Stellan was diagnosed with heart disease called supraventricular tachycardia (or SVT) in utero and was not expected to live long after birth, but was born seemingly healthy. Shortly afterward, however, the SVT reasserted itself. The family temporarily relocated to Boston for Stellan’s treatments. After apparently serious complications, Stellan underwent successful heart surgery in November 2009 and has not been seriously ill since.

With constant calls for prayers from sympathetic bloggers, Stellan’s story went viral and McKinney’s blog surged in popularity. She completed interviews with several local TV stations and newspapers, Woman’s World Magazine, and produced webinars for Focus on the Family. With increased popularity came increased scrutiny and many readers began questioning McKinney’s blogging tactics (including cryptic, dramatic “cliffhanger” posts to increase clicks and blog revenue) and truthfulness. Controversies have included charges of plagiarism (in which McKinney adapted large blocks of text from a photography tutorial and presented it as her own writing), questions about the McKinney finances (the McKinneys, over $700,000 in debt, filed for bankruptcy in December 2011; after a hearing, the discharge of debts was denied in court) and marriage (the pair legally separated in April 2012 in the midst of the bankruptcy filing, but reconciled in the autumn of 2012), and seemingly careless or controversial childrearing practices and life choices.

Most recently, McKinney has become a seller of Xyinglar, a weight loss supplement often accused of being a multilevel marketing scheme. Touting her own weight loss as proof of “Xyng’s” effectiveness, McKinney drew upon her own large readership to sell the product and is currently among the top-ranked sellers. McKinney closed her blog (previously found at mycharmingkids.net) in September 2012 and now primarily operates through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media outlets.

A blog/website, now known as MckMama Without Pity, or MWOP, was established to provide evidence of lies and inconsistencies perpetrated by Jennifer McKinney, as well as a discussion area. More information on specific instances of McKinney’s can be found at mckmamatruths.com/.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.
