I will actually be kind of relieved to see Allison.  She may just be taking a social media break, but I'm a bit concerned for her. I assume she has to be going. 

If she ends up not being there I think a lot of us are going to be extra concerned.  Or if she shows up looking 8-9 months pregnant. ;) (Wishful thinking only because I would love to see the spin these hypocrite families would put on such a scenario).

I've created an agenda of manly topics for the lads to discuss at the conference:  8:00- 9:00 Prayer, specifically how to word your prayers to remind your wife of her wifely duties. 9:00 - 9

Allison is in the wedding party so she will be there. Here is a list of them:

I'm surprised the Bontragers haven't posted anything about the livestream link for the wedding on their blog. I looked back and they posted 5 days before Allison's wedding with the livestream link as a reminder. They announced Denver and Praise's engagement on the blog but haven't posted anything about the wedding that I've seen.

It's also interesting that this wedding this weekend will be in Iowa, where the Bontragers live, since I think it's more common to have the wedding where the bride lives/is from. 

Weather.com says Saturday in Washington, IA will be sunny with a high of 51F. Other parts of the Midwest can easily have snowstorms in mid-March so they're lucky (sorry, I mean God provided for them). My wedding was in early April in the Midwest and it snowed two days before, messing with some flights of incoming guests!

It's on their instagram, but it doesn't explain it's for the wedding. (I actually just guessed the Church would provide the link if they were getting married in Iowa, so I just went straight to the church's website and found the link, then later saw it on the Bont 'gram.)  

Yes, I too assumed it would be at the Bride's home church, so I was surprised I found the wedding link so easily.  But maybe covid restrictions? Iowa is pretty relaxed, I think Minnesota may still require face coverings (as all states should!)

Got my timer set and my rum set aside.  Taking a shot every time I hear plandemic, references to LGBTQ, vaccines, divorce, and cancel culture.

I would join you in a hearbeat, but this pregnancy thing is kind of in the way.

Anyway - I'm trying to get my boyfriend out of the house so I can watch the whole drama.

They could. I think she’s around 20 or so. And the Lincoln Taylor is 19.

Iowa has zero restrictions anymore. Minnesota still has plenty. If they'd married in Minnesota, the ebil gubment would have infringed upon their right to have a super spreader event without any care or concern for anyone's health. In Iowa, it's a free for all, so they can do what they want, dammit!

Yes. He won the most I think. Denver and Josh won some. But I don’t think they won as much as Lincoln Taylor.

Here it is:  https://marionavenuebaptist.com/livestream

ETA (because my 3 year old knocked over my computer):  scroll down on the link above, it's listed for March 20, at 3pm (Iowa is Central U.S. time)

Thanks so much for posting this!  Due to a previous commitment, I'm probably going to miss this, so I'm counting on FJ for some solid recaps.  Maybe the church will put it in their archives.

Just hanging out in the woods and some creeper behind a tree is taking pictures of us. I love awkward engagement pics.

I try to speak in code when I’m talking to my family members about something a fundie has said or done. I act as if these folks are friends of friends. My adult kids sort of know, and they sometimes give me a hard time. I have tried to explain that my following is all in the interest of America and knowing how the other side of the aisle thinks and votes! It’s called being informed, 😂

The window of opportunity to watch your daughter play Lacrosse is very small, although it may not feel that way right now. OTOH, there will be fundie weddings to watch for now and all eternity.

Imo this style always wins most cringeworthy.

For sure. She’s so excited after missing last season. There’s always a fundy wedding around the corner.

I think your daughter's lacrosse game is guaranteed to be more exciting than another Bontrager wedding/political diatribe.  Have fun!

The church livestream seems to adjust for the time zone you are in, so it's telling me 7pm.

That suits me just fine, I can sit on the sofa, with my earphones on my tablet while Mr Sops2 watches the golf/ rugby/football on tv, completely oblivious to my fundie peccadillo which I have never revealed to him. He would have no idea what I was talking about anyway.

I’m inclined to watch as well but it’s dinner time so I would have a hard time to explain this to boyfriend. He knows that I’m spending some time here on FJ but he actually only knows about the politics forum 🤣

      I just made a lovely discovery! Type a colon, then a ) without any spaces. Then type a space. 
          
      I am ridiculously happy to discover this! (I also have a nagging feeling that I should have figured this out sooner...)

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      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.
