Of course it’s a possible Jana courtship that made a Duggar thread go hot. 

I think the last time a Duggar thread was hot for a good while was the raid 😂.

If Jana marries Stephen and she joins the family band, she might get to add "concert pianist" to her resume at long last! 

God I hope not. Carver is sooo far out of her league attractiveness-wise, he can do wayyy better.

This makes me miss the Christmas Letters my mother-in-law wrote years ago. She didn’t gloss over anything! She put everyone on blast. Daughter chose a bad guy and just kicked him out? You heard it her

Their blog has been public forever and now all of a sudden it's private. Don't the realize that definitely will draw more speculation and attention? Why not just remain public and just not post about the relationship?? This should be easy because we never hear about a relationship until it's engagement status. So why change because it's a Duggar?

I’m a little late on this, but they do colour-coding by sex for many reality TV shows involving kids, I think. They have it for Sister Wives, for example.

And ooh, possible Jana courtship. Of course, it could be a load of nothing...

When we first saw the pic over the weekend, I honestly couldn’t tell if it was him. His head looked different because of the hair. I think he normally has a different hair cut and it could be him. He’s tall like Stephen.

BTW, Chaney took that pic down. So I think a Duggar asked her to. 

Curiouser and curiouser🤔😂

The Burnetts completely deleted their blog! Right before they announced JD and Abbie. Probably around the time the couple was getting serious they deleted it. Fundies are strange!

About Stephen, from the family website: 

Quote

Stephen is a man of many talents. He enjoys being a pilot, assistant manager of Wissmann Enterprises, Inc., making small furniture, and being physically active through workouts and sports. He is gifted in initiating conversations that encourage and challenge, and he has a heart for ministry. He directs a lot of our music arrangements, plays mandolin and guitar, and sings lead and bass

Look! He's a pilot! That's good news, because there are no other fundie guys who are pilots. We could use one! Or two... or... 🛩️   😄

Well that plane isn't going to fly itself from Arkansas to Nebraska (or from Nebraska to Waco for the pilgrimages to Magnolia).

I always figured Jana would want to stay in Arkansas near the family. But if she married a pilot, it would be ok if they lived a couple of states away. The plane trip probably isn’t more than 2 hours long.

She talked about how in the past she wanted to stay near her family but now she would be willing to move for the right guy. Maybe this is the right guy.

I’m just going to remind everyone of that time Stephen knocked doors supporting Jed Duggar’s political race.

It will be interesting to see how their relationship is handled. We're in the middle of a pandemic, and I genuinely believe TLC didn't want to go near Justin's super spreader wedding. However, Jana getting married would be GOLD for their ratings. I can't see TLC wanting to turn that down, nor can I see Jana wanting to wait until 2022 to get married. 

I don’t know how it is in the states but with the current vaccination-speed could it not be possible that a lot of restrictions will be lifted around the summer?

If they get engaged somewhere in the next month, I can see them holding the wedding off for a few more monthsz They could benefit from buzz for a longer period and at the same time go for the ‘Covid-is-over-wedding-party’storyline.

 

 

(and with Covid is over, I don’t mean that it actually will be all over, that will take a bit longer. But if some restrictions are lifted because of the vaccination-rate, I can see the Duggars concluding that it is all over)

I could definitely see that happening. A July wedding. They can do an outdoor wedding and reception.

Hillary Spivey is crying herself to sleep tonight, knowing that her baby girl's wedding will never be televised if there is a blessed sweet Rufus Jana-Duggar-Spinster-No-More TLC and tabloids ratings extravaganza coming down the pike!

 

By the way, I noticed that the Wissmans went on missioncation in El Salvador in Jan 2020-- did any Duggars go then?

I'm not good at keeping with these people, but if I remember correctly,  there was a time when all the lost boys down to Justin were rumored to be matched up. Is that still true? I remember seeing Claire, Katey and Lauren Caldwell as girls for them, but I think there's one or two more. Basically, Jed, Jer, Jason, James, and Justin all had girls. 

And count me in as thinking that Jana and Stephen are legit.

Too much time in the Jrod thread.  I initially read that as grifted. 

They do sound like they would be a good fundie match on paper. 

Wait a minute, I'm slow to put this together, but could it be a Duggar courtship/wedding palooza? All the single twins married off?

I made a thread about them last year with a pretty good recap. 

 

I literally thought of you immediately when I saw this floating around on facebook. You have a Sheldon Cooper-like knowledge of these folkx.

It must have been recently. I was checking their blog yesterday or the day before... can't remember due to pregnancy brain fog!

As a person from Germany I had to laugh and cry at the same time when I read this. We are vaccinating so damn slow that it will take forever to have some kind of immnunity. Yet we are lifting a lot of restrictions inspite of rising numbers. I'm so through with this pandemic.

Is it? 
Here in the Netherlands they are expecting to give everyone at least their first shot before July. So I don’t think that will be very different in Germany.

So far we are vaccinating with a real strict concept, but a lot of people don't want Astra Zeneca and don't show up for their appointments. So now there is a discussion wether other people who are actually later in line, but willing to get this vaccine will be vaccinated sooner.

All in all Germany can organize the shit out of everything, but flexibility just ain't our strong suit.

Ah yes, I heard about that.

Here AZ has less of an image problem but we did start with giving the leftovers to other groups quite fast. We started slow but we are really speeding up.

I think this has to do with the issues around deliveries within Europe. There are big issues between EU and AZ at the moment. And at the same time the effectivity turned out lower than planned as well as not enough testing on elderly.

In most of Europe there is a serious image problem with AZ.

It literally went private just an hour or so ago! Right around the time all this speculation reached the tabloids. On another note for some odd reason Andrew Wissmann blocked me. That was a bit random...

I'm kind of wondering if TLC will put out their announcement next week after all the Covid restrictions and mask mandates are lifted in Texas.

to be fair, I would put my (hypothetical) blog on private too if tabloids were writing about it

Yeah, but doesn't their response really just add to the speculation? I think that ignoring it would have been a much better option. By buttoning up their blog and blocking people on Insta they're basically confirming that they have something to hide.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
