Yes, she's top notch. She loves God...you can tell by the way she serves others in the prisons and orphanages.
You might want to re-think that headline. Sounds like she was in an accident.
She may be the one with her hand up, but obviously she wasn't at that auction by herself, doing this by herself. Look who's behind her.
I agree - they're trying to make it look like Jinger is in charge but the pictures say otherwise. It's like they had to come up with something for her to do for the cameras, so they can show how "grown up" she is now. I'd rather see her moving out & moving to New York to study photography. That would probably make her very happy! She was really excited when she was in New York before. You could sure see it in her eyes. They were lit up and sparkling with possibility.
If the pictures are valid, it should be "Jinger AND HER BROTHERS flip a car," not just Jinger, not if the brothers are along and step in to help make the decisions. Why try make something be down to one kid when it's not? What's wrong with saying they ALL went to an auction, bought a car, and resold it?
Is that a business transaction? Do you have to be licensed to buy and then sell a car like that? Does anyone know?
Jim Bob was the original used car business owner operating under a business name, Josh also had a used car lot and his business registered to go to auctions, obviously John David is operating as a representative of whatever biz entity they registered with. It's not illegal or even unusual.
If people outside US still looking for somewhere to watch full episodes heres a link http://www.watchseries.li/serie/jill_jessa_counting_on no sign ups needed I live in the UK it's very good quality
When I first saw the headline I thought she got in an accident!!
That looks staged by TLC to showcase Jinger. She's not even wearing the auction number, her brother is. That means she's not the one who's the registered buyer.
That really saddens me. I had high hopes they would let the young ladies do somethings on their own.
You can't buy a car from an auction without a dealer license which her dad and brothers already have. I do not know why some of you have chosen to think the worst of her when the episode hasn't even aired and you obviously don't know anything about the car business!!
She held the number up at the end. And if all the things to do alone messing about in the car biz would not be smart
Aww... Want a tissue? lol ridiculous comment!
The headline mislead people. Nobody needs a tissue, just stating facts. After watching the show actually Joy did most of the work. Lol...
You might consider changing the name of this post. It reads like Jinger was in a serious car accident.
When I read the headline, my first thought was, Oh my gosh, I hope she's not hurt. A play on words is fine when it's cute, funny and harmless, but that is not either cute or funny. It implies something horrible happened. I'd change that headline to be appropriate,
I am proud of jinger.she shows that she has a lot of creative energy.she can take care of herself!
So, does this mean that Jinger has the proper licenses to purchase a vehicle at this auction which I believe is open to auto dealers only? I doubt that she does. Her brother(s) will actually do it for her in their name. Why do the Duggars embellish everything their children do and make it seem like they are properly educated, licensed professionals when they are not.?Also, Jinger, in her interview segment, has a changed voice, mouthing moves and sounds exactly like Joy. What's up with that?
Have you ever watched the show? Her father and brothers are car dealership owners! Why are you so negative? Most girls her age can't afford to buy a car to drive, much less flip? I mean, really, which one of you would turn down help from a parent or older sibling when getting your feet wet in business?
Jim Bob, Josh and John are all dealers. Did you ever watch the show?
Those girls can do just about anything...Gotta love those Duggars❤Blessings☺
Yes, they can do anything, without regard to proper licenses or rules & regulations. I don't know why TLC doesn't address this. It's not being truthful with the viewers, which does a disservice to them. How hard would it be to say, "TLC arranged for us to ___" (fill in the blank)? It would take 2 seconds and disclose the truth.
Truth is all based on perception. The Duggars have convinced their fans they don't need to follow the rules of everyone else. It's scary. While TLC and the Duggars have A LOT of help behind the scenes it concerns me fans will try and do the same. Faulty wiring is extremely dangerous and should only be done by a lisenced electrician.
I hope that tonight, they give TLC some credit for not only buying the supplies for the treehouse, but giving them expert help, even if it's only behind the scenes.
They HAVE a license to wholesale a car. Really, instead of focusing on the non-existent speck in the Duggars eyes why not focus on Jesus?
In my opinion it is very sad that the Duggar girls are not natural anymore :( Why are they wearing a lot of makeup? Also they are wearing very short skirts, it doesn´t look modest or like a godly girl. I´m very sad about their change since they were on tv.
I agree. Especially Anna. She is so pretty and does not need all that make up. Now she is wearing way to much. Almost like she does not feel pretty natural anymore and like she needs all that make up. Sad.
Oh...natural beauty is highly over-rated. Even Queen Esther went through a year of beauty treatments before going before the King. She saved her people looking fabulous!!
They look pretty godly to me.
Very short skirts? They always cover at least their knees, what do you want more? A burka?
That's incredibly rude. Yes, they are choosing to show a little knee, but why does that make them "ungodly"? They are still godly women, maybe not to you, but in the eyes of God!
She asked a valid question. There have been changes since Michelle first told us about modesty and not drawing attention to anything but your face. Mom might still be following those rules, but are the girls?
I think that when you judge being "godly" from appearance there's a lot more in the eye of the behoder than in the heart of the person who's being scrutinized.If they are good people and their hear is pure, what difference do their clothes make? If you hold these rules to literally, a thief that doesn't show an inch of skin ends up being a more godly person than one of those girls, who might show a knee here and there. I have my doubts.
They aren't girls, they are young women. And Jinger's eye makeup was tame compared to what girls wore in the 80s and 90s.
Jinger's eye makeuo! She such a pretty girl, don't know why she covers it all with dark eyeliner and eye shadow.
Leave her alone for goodness sake. She's beautiful, and make-up is one of the few freedoms she has to express herself.
There are other ways she can express herself for instance through her photography.
I agree that Jinger wears too much makeup. Girls who wear that much heavy eye makeup are almost hiding behind the paint job.
Her makeup is beautiful just like her.
She wears it way too thick and dark that is isn't flattering on her.
It's just make-up people.
@Annonymous 4:14. What?? Exactly what could she be hiding behind eye liner? That's just silly--looking to be critical. I happen to wear a lot of make-up too. My husband likes it. I assure you I am not hiding anything.
This blog never answered the question of what the "fall feast" is. Never heard of it before. Is it thanksgiving? christian alternative to halloween?
It was Thanksgiving. My sister is part of a denomination that re-names holidays. Halloween is called Fall Festival. It's at their Church. Kids dress up --nothing scary per se--and get candy--have games. To me again it's just Halloween re-named, but makes them feel better about participating. I've noticed a lot of churches do that.
A lot if churches call it a fall festival, even mainline denominations.
I love your Blogs Ellie, and in all due respect I promise, I just want to say it seems like it is taking a lot longer to see responses that people post in the 3 blogs. For example, when you put up a new blog post, it may be sometimes up to 4 or 5 days until there are any responses and sometimes longer, and in between that time you will already have one or two newer blog posts. Maybe you are extra busy lately too.
I apologize for the delay! I've been struggling with tendonitis in my wrist for the past few weeks, so I haven't been able to spend as much time on the computer. Thanks for being a loyal reader! Ellie
Aw!! Tendinitis is so painful. I hope you feel better soon.
Thank you! :)Ellie
Prayers for you. I have had that myself. Can be very painful. Hope you feel better soon.
Thanks so much for the prayers! God bless you,Ellie
At first I thought it meant, but thank goodness it was just a good story.
I did not like the fall feast Why wasn't it called Thanksgiving???Why are they wearing all that makeup???? The show is not as good as it used to be.
John David is doing a great job stepping up to be the older brother after the Josh scandals :-)
Totally agree. I always liked him.
He will make an awesome husband one day. He has a heart of gold, good looking, and smart.
First they showcased Jana and now Jinger...I think they are both courting and an announcement is coming soon. Ellie, do you know something we don't and are required to keep it a secret?
Maybe they are maybe they aren't. However the premise of the new show was to focus on Jill and Jessa and the other adult children so I wouldn't jump to any conclusions.
There are auto auction where you don't have to be a dealer or have a license to buy a car.
But don't you have to be a dealer or have a license to then SELL the car again? I didn't see a dealer plate or any license plate on that vehicle on last night's show, yet they took it out for a test drive. What's up with that?
It is illegal in my state not to have a plate of some kind. It must be auto dealer or even temp plates will do from the dealer, but has to be something there and visible or you will be pulled over and given a ticket. Husband is a police officer.
Is it their religious belief that adult children must depend on the family for their work and livelihood?I find it strange that the unmarried older kids don't seem to receive any encouragement to become independent and live on their own. Most 20 somethings, if not 18 year olds, yearn for some privacy and a career that wasn't predetermined for them. I'd watch this show if even one of them got out on their own and broke the Duggar mold! As it is, it's entirely predictable and scripted.
I agree. I have been watching the shows, but growing frustrated with the same old same old. I actually like 19 kids better cause I loved watching the little ones. I am hearing quite a few advertisers have pulled out on them as well. Hopefully something will give.
Love Jinger! Her clothing style is my favorite out of all the sisters. People are thinking way too much of the legalities. Jinger probably just expressed an interest in flipping a car, so she's not going to run out and get a certification/license just because of that interest. She's probably just testing the waters out (while under the supervision of her big brother), to see if that's something she wants to do long-term. She's not saying this is going to be her career. Maybe she just wants to make some extra money, so she's flipping a car or two under the tutelage of her brother.
Maybe she puts too much make up, maybe not. It's her heart that we should be looking at. At least she's not doing drugs, or being sexually active, etc. Give her a break people.
Wow...just wow all the negative nellies at at it again...and you are visiting this site because?? Oh yeah its a fan site thanks for visiting...blessings y'all ☺
I love Jinger's hat!
