Jana & Jinger to speak at Commit Conference

Recommended Posts

I guess Jim Bob and Michelle are going to be making Jana and Jinger do all of the speaking engagements now? The Commit Conference is Aug 19-22. They have Jana and Jinger's photo listed first with the other for speakers but then under details it says, "2015 Conference Speakers Include:

Jana & Jinger Duggar, Kathryn Ritchie, Janny Moore, Michelle Duggar, Jenny Speed, Laura Oliverio, Becky Keilen, Laura DeMasie, and more!" so I guess Michelle will make an appearance. I believe it is IBLP affiliated.

 

This is the bio on the site for Jana & Jinger. Most of it is word for word what they said for Jim Bob and Michelle's bio on a speaking appearance a couple of months ago except they swiped out Jim bob & Michelle for Jana & Jinger, "Jana and Jinger Duggar have been an inspiration to millions of people through the ministry God has opened up for them through their television reality series aired on Discovery Health and TLC. As they have simply tried to live out the truths of God’s Word with their family, their faithful witness has given them ministry opportunities all around the world. In 2014 Jana and Jinger authored a best-selling book, along with sisters Jill and Jessa, titled Growing up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships.

 

The Duggar girls will share from their hearts about their relationship as sisters in a family of 19 children, the importance of communication and openness with their parents, and about their most impor­tant relationship of all—their relationship with Jesus."

I bolded the part of the bio that concerns me. I hope they aren't being forced to talk about the scandal.

My workplace filter is blocking that URL--where is this conference?

I'm just curious because Jana & Becky will be in Michael(la) Bates wedding to Brandon Keilen in East Tennessee on the 15th.

It says Indianapolis, IN. It sounds like it will be held at the ATI center there probably.

Edited; didn't see the previous post with location. The site does say Verity College--is that ATI?

Lolz at the attire. Maxis!

Conference Dress

Casual attire. A t-shirt and maxi skirt are perfect! :)

(We ask young ladies and their mothers to dress modestly during the conference.)

I wonder what would happen if a lady would just walk in in hotpants? :stir-pot:

Or even normal shorts?

All the fundie ladies turn to see normal shorts girl, then put their noses so high in the air that could possibly drown during the next rainstorm, and give enormous looks of disdain

How else would they dress if it's an IBLP event? Do they seriously expect Mullet to roll up in a mini skirt ("it's a skirt, not a sinful pair of pants!") and tube top ("but, my shoulders are covered by my hair!")? :roll:

No, I just thought it was funny since we were discussing the popularity of maxi skirts in the Josiah thread... For like ten pages.

I'd actually like to hear them talk without Jill and Jessa around, even though it would be parroting.

I'm surprised that they are letting the unmarried daughters speak in public. It seems a little out of character for them!

Maybe its a sign that Jessa and Jill have gone rogue, or maybe the family makes more money if Jana and Jinger speak?

Seriously I wish I could go and after they got off the stage, grab Jana by the shoulders and say

"You can come back with me to Texas, you can stay in my apartment, go to college and be normal yet still conservative (Texas is the bible belt buckle of the bible belt) grab Jinger and Joy I have the car ready"

I think Jim Bob and Michelle are forcing Jana and Jinger to be the new money makers. Neither Jana nor Jinger have ever seemed to enjoy the spotlight. I feel like speaking at a conference would be Jana's worse nightmare. I have rarely even seen Jinger speak without Jessa as her sidekick. I have never even gotten the impression that the two were close. It's almost like the Duggar kids are interchangeable. Jill and Jessa aren't available so they just put two more girls in their place.

They are being forced to try new things to keep in the public eye. JB has many mouths to feed, so if he has to push his two shyest daughters onstage to spout the family line and bring home the turkey bacon, done.

Interesting how his name isn't mentioned in the speaking lineup. Perhaps even leghumpers question his headship abilities.

Get used to the new Duggar income spinning Jana and Jinger. :(

Headship is tainted so now the girls not only have to work at home while Michelle does whatever she does, but they have to support the rest outside the house too. Ugh.

I'm starting to wonder if JB's claim that 2/3 of the families he knows have dealt with incest, because why else would they continue to get speaking gigs, even if it's at IBLP conferences? At this point, how could anyone think that the Duggars have anyone to teach us about anything? :cray-cray: :angry-banghead: :wtf: :?

I really wonder if these ATI appearances give them much income, other than paying for the transportation, food & board to and from there. Especially when multiple Duggars are performing.

Seriously, I can see the girls only getting a speaking fee of a couple hundred dollars each, on top of expenses. That serious isn't much more than working a few shifts at a restaurant instead.

I wonder if their speaking at a Commit Conference isn't a backdoor way to get Jana and Jinger to attend the thing (since they've aged out) in order to reinforce the ATI conditioning/brainwashing after this scandal

Quite. But the girls wouldn't be allowed to work outside the home at somewhere like a restaurant, where they'd come into contact with the outside world and ebil nonbelievers.

"Shun the nonbeliever! SHUNNNN!"

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
