Bontragers/Bowers/Helferich 9: Oh Nos! Chelsey Married a Maxwell!

Allison is shilling Young Living oils. They're an MLM. I've been watching videos on about MLMs and they're all basically pyramid schemes that somehow stay legal. There's a lot of overlap between religion, fundies and MLMs. I'm not surprised Allison has joined one. I think the wedding was probably Noah Hale and Abby Evans.

It is weird but there are people who get something out of making up an alternate self and fooling people. I am fairly certain we have a couple active on here right now- we usually do, to be fair.  I am not saying this poster is a faker but the chances are 50/50 either way.

Feel free to verify me. I’m from a fundie family

 

@Triplet3 just lots of little things. You all know them very well…for people who don't know them.

You can PM @Curious for verification but then you have to supply loads of gossip ;)

I was surprised to see the prominent CBD advertising in the Young Living sale image she posted, as I would have thought the Bontragers would be opposed to anything even remotely drug-adjacent.

Although Becky seems like she could use some maximum-strength CBD.

Some fundies are actually shilling CBD. Anything for a buck I guess.

They just posted a picture from the wedding they attended on the Bontragers’ ig. Newlyweds are named Noah and Abby. They didn’t say a last name, I’m not sure who they are.

Winner winner chicken dinner! It was Noah and Abby.

Deleted my original comment because it was honestly not my intention to speculate about the love life of minors. I thought everyone involved was of age, but I just checked and I see I was mistaken - my bad.

Apologies if I've offended anyone or broken any rules.

I thought it was next weekend, same weekend as the girly girl retreat a Helferich sister is now taking over for the no longer single Allison? 

I wonder if we'll get pictures of the manly food, because I still don't know WTF that is and need to, for some reason. 

All those push ups and other manly man tasks - I'll bet the girls can smell the testosterone and are all hot & bothered by it.

Their manly food will be piles of rich meats and by the time the weekend is over, they will all have a nice case of gout. The manliest affliction of kings.

Either that or they’ll be badly constipated and spending time in reflection on their kingly thrones.

There is an Instastory on the family profile in which the two remaining daughters are singing with Johannah Duggar. They even linked the official Duggar instagram profile.

I'm glad that Johannah seems to have friend in Elizabeth Bontrager I just find the timing odd.

I thought the timing was odd too. Was there a hidden agenda? We’re they sending a message of support for the Duggars? Or was it just bad timing? I can’t say. But if it was Liz who posted, she’s only 17. She might just be naive enough to not realize it’s bad timing.

Tons of photos of Johannah and Jackson Duggar in the newest Bontager post, lots with Johannah and Liz wearing the same outfit. I would find it fascinating if there was a marriage between those families. I just feel like the Duggars are fundie-lite in practice and the Bontragers definitely aren't.

It wouldn't surprise me if Liz has no idea about anything to do with Josh past or present. Then given how often the Duggar kids appear in those photos I doubt there are many to choose from that don't feature them.

I can't really put my finger on it, but I have a feeling that the Duggar clan might be in a process of returning to their more stricter fundie days. Especially now with this new disgusting scandal.
But even before that they seemed to be closer to the Bontrager and Brower families than before and those two families are definitely hardcore fundie.
Maybe JB wants some kind of rebranding or maybe he hopes to keep the fold together with a return to a more fundie lifestyle.
Pure speculation, I know..

I'm surprised Marlin is happy his girls are friends with Johannah. In his speech at Chelsy's wedding, he said it was important for your kids' friends to be older than them so they provide them with wisdom. Peer groups were dangerous, because the kids were all the same age and equally unwise or something. He even made Chelsy's best friend stand up and some of his other kids' friends. 

Liz seems too young to mentor Hannie and Hannie seems too to mentor Rebecca Bontrager.

I think that's Tyler (from the Duggars) in one of the photos. It's the photo with the bookshelves and the rocking chair.

Do we know of any other Duggars that went to Denver and Praises wedding? Jackson and Johannah featured in a lot of the pictures both leading up to the day, and on the wedding day it self. A bit strange if only those two were there?

My impression is that a lot of the work of the Duggar family was due to it's sheer size, especially when all 19 kids were at home with lots of littles. Where as the Bontrager family seems to be about "hands to work hearts to god" they will find work, make work for themselves and relish in it, Thinking of Chelsy for example who would go to her pastors house on Sundays to help get his kids ready for church and give the pastors wife a break... can't see the single Duggar kids volunteering like that.

I'm not familiar with Marlin's speech at Chelsy's wedding, but I read Chelsy's blog several times (I have no life!) and it appeared to me that she had lots of friends in her age group and took part in some kind of girls ministry for a long time. Over the years she travels quite a bit to attend those friends weddings and stuff like that. She seemed to have a very active social life.
Allison on the other hand seemed to have less friends, but still there are some girls she mentions multiple times on her blog.

I can see that they would have been invited as a pair. Jackson purely as Johannah's chaperone. Not necessarily because of a love interest/courtship but just to be under the "protection" of a male relative. And as seen in the couch photo he comes in handy squeezing in next her so she doesn't touch a non-family male which is classic Bontrager.

The older two girls seemed to have a lot more freedom than the younger two Bontrager girls have. Not sure if it's their age or a change Marlin and Becky have made. The older two had their own blogs and regularly went on long distance trips together to weddings etc. crossing the border to Canada, staying in motels etc Haven't seen either from the younger two nor did Alison take them on the same kind of trips she had with Chelsy in the gap between Chelsy and her marriage.

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
       
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
      Picture included for something cool to look at.
