Jeremy Roloff Launches New Website GoLifeorBust




























Jeremy Roloff has finally opened his website http://www.golifeorbust.com/ that he has talked about for quite some time.

It includes a blog section and a place to purchase his photos although that section says "coming June 6th".

The "blog" section does have some blogs from Jeremy dated 2014 which is probably the first time people have seen in depth writings from Jeremy.

Jeremy's wife, Audrey, also has a blog linked:

Jacob Roloff is 18 Years Old

Happy Birthday to Jacob Roloff!

The youngest member of the Roloff family from TLC's long running "reality show" Little People, Big World" is now 18. The Roloffs first TV special "Little People, Big Dreams" was filmed in 2004 and the then weekly television series, "Little People, Big World" began airing in 2006.

On his twitter account, hours after he officially was 18, Jacob tweeted

"Good Birthday :)" along with a picture of himself with his dog Luna and his girlfriend's dog.































Matt Roloff, on his official Facebook Page, quickly took to twitter to post this to his Facebook fans:

"I want to be the first ... We'll maybe the second... To wish Jacob Roloff a happy birthday!!! 10 minutes ago he turned 18 years of age.. Happy Birthday Jacob... So proud of your recent successes. :)))) "


Although when you read the ending portion of that post, keep in mind that it is the same Matt Roloff who when Jacob was expelled from Faith Bible Christian School (Jacob has since openly stated he was indeed expelled, but Matt never used the word expelled) back then Matt Roloff took to Facebook to predict to his Facebook fans that Jacob would excel in a public high school and how excited Matt was that Jacob had the chance to join the school's engineering club... Several times last year on his social media, Jacob stated his hatred for the majority of his high school peers and then wrote about how he had left the public high school to complete his senior year at home via "online school".

Matt later posted a longer message:

"We're so proud of All our kids! Our youngest... baby Jacob.. turned 18 today. We celebrated at brunch together (sorry no photos) :)))). Amy and I take great pride (just as our parents did) in raising kids that are individual thinkers and are developing their own paths in life. We don't believe in 'cookie cutter' raising.... we are ultra proud of each of our kids and are reveling in our success. Thank you all For so many well wishes and Happy Birthdays to our 'baby' Jay... (I tried to respond to many of you). We are Slowly Graduating to the next stage in life.. Hugs to all."

On her Facebook Fan Page, Amy Roloff posted:

"When did my boy grow into an 18yr old young man? A BIG Happy Happy 18th Birthday to my Jacob today. He's still my baby boy, my world even though he thinks he's ready to fly the coop. Love you forever Like you always Mom."


Multiple times over the last year Jacob has made "I can't wait until I'm 18" type posts on his social media.

On Jan 8, 2015, Jacob tweeted:

"So weird I'm gonna move out soon lol wtf"

Jacob also stated several times last year his intention to not sign another contract with TLC. The Roloffs are continuing "Little People, Big World" episodes with TLC this year as Zach's wedding will be featured in 2015.

Jacob has long made his disdain of the show well known, often bluntly calling it "fake". More recently, Jacob stated he would not sign another contact, only a waiver so they can show his face during the "Zach's wedding" episodes without needing to blur him out. Some are skeptical that Jacob will follow through, however, that is what he stated has was his intention.

Jacob's social media has been controversial over the last year. Straying from the family mold of not discussing real issues,  Jacob was very upfront about his habits and opinions on controversial social topics (until recently).

Jacob has been very open about his fondness for marijuana and other drugs, specifically mentioning Acid and Xanax.

He upset Christian fans of the show when Jacob made it known that he wasn't a Christian, never felt like he was a Christian and basically felt that believing in God or "a man in the sky" or prayer or heaven and hell is foolish. This is obviously a very different belief from the other Roloffs. When Jeremy's wife Audrey took to twitter to "Thank Jesus" for the sunny weather on her wedding day, people posed the question to Jacob what he thought of God blessing a devoted Christian? Jacob's answer stated that he thought it was absurd to believe that praying to Jesus made a difference in the weather. Some Christians felt that was Jacob mocking Audrey and other Christians who thank God.

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2014/12/guest-opinion-article-jacob-roloffs.html

While Christian fans have been very offended by Jacob's social media posts about his rejection of religion, the rest of the Roloffs have remained completely silent on the subject.

Over a year ago, Amy Roloff interviewed with The Christian Post where she discussed her pride in raising Christian kids and how she felt the Roloffs have paved the way for other "families of faith" on reality television. After Jacob's declaration about his rejection of Christianity, the author of The Christian Post article expressed interest in doing a follow up interview with Amy Roloff but as of yet, nothing more has come of it.

Jeremy Roloff, who along with wife Audrey, often mentions their staunch faith in Jesus, has also declined to share any thoughts on Jacob's social media. In Jeremy's recent You Tube video, he ignored all of the controversial topics that has highlighted Jacob's social media in the last year to give this very bland description of what Jacob has been doing when asked for an update on Jacob by a fan who obviously doesn't follow Jacob's own social media. Jeremy stated:

"where Jacob's at right now, he's back at the farm finishing up his senior year in high school [online school, actually], taking care of our new puppy....so...yeah.."

Jacob and his girlfriend also created a stir when they recently began posting pictures of themselves sleeping together in Jacob's room late at night and early morning. It led some Christian and non-Christian posters to ask "What kind of Christian parents would allow their 17 year old son to sleep in his bedroom with his girlfriend?"

Others thought it was silly to make an issue out of it since it's common place in 2015.

Some Christian posters stated that if Jacob was their son, they would kick him out of the house the moment he turned 18 if he insisted on not following their (supposedly) Christian rules.

Again, none of the Roloffs (Jeremy tweeted that he missed Jacob now that Jeremy lives in California) have made any comment about Jacob until Matt's 'Happy Birthday'...."So proud of your recent successes. :))))" Facebook post. Both Matt and Amy Roloff are available as paid public speakers for Christian organizations and events.

Jeremy Roloff Question & Answer You Tube Video

Although it was not exactly "no holds barred" kind of questions, Jeremy Roloff has finally answered fan questions. He did ignore any and all "negative" type questions.

Jeremy's tone in his answers was very much in line with the show - unlike Jacob who calls the show fake and how people are stupid if they think what they see on the show is real, Jeremy talks as though the things on the show are the true Roloffs.

Jeremy posted a You Tube video as he said he was going to do when his Facebook Page Likes got over 200,000.

We'll start with a quick recap of the main things I think people might be interested in if they aren't going to watch the whole 29 minute video.

*Jeremy says the toughest thing about living a very public life is having to watch what they say and what they do all the time. He says he has went through some challenges (but doesn't get into anything specific) He says the internet is written in ink, he can't afford to make any mistakes so he finds it tiring to have to watch what he says all the time. But those are challenges, great opportunities to flourish as a family in how they deal with things.

*Jeremy was asked about Jacob not being on the show much. He said everybody else was old enough to understand the show when it started but Jacob never had a choice so as he's gotten older he just realized that he doesn't like being filmed as much as the rest of the family. So Jacob has chosen to show up when he wants to show up and participate when he wants but not over participate.

*Jeremy says Jacob is at the farm finishing up his senior year in high school, taking care of their new puppy and yeah, that's it. For anyone wondering, no, Jeremy did not discuss any of Jacob's social media content, Jacob's views about Christianity, etc.

*He was asked if Matt and Amy's marriage difficulties has been hard to deal with. He feels that is a personal question so doesn't want to elaborate too much. It's been hard but not a divisive issue for the family. He hopes they work it out and thinks they are on the right path. He's praying for them.

*Jeremy is selling his photos. He has a website (that isn't quite operational yet) www.golifeorbust.com

*He would like to sell a coffee table book of his photography.

*Jeremy would like to write a book about growing up on a reality television show.

*Jeremy and Audrey would love to write a book about long distance relationships.They're trying to explore that idea.

*Jeremy and Audrey would love to do a show like Dancing With The Stars or The Amazing Race

*Jeremy and Audrey are not too sure about if they want their own reality show, but they would need to know what the scenario would be about.

*He was asked if they paid for their wedding? Jeremy said that he and Audrey paid for things that were really important to them like photography and video that went outside of the budget, but Audrey's father Dan kept with tradition and paid for the wedding.

*Jeremy was asked about when they want to have kids. Audrey wants to wait a couple of years. Jeremy wants to wait a couple of more years on top of that, but accidents can happen. He says they aren't ready for kids yet.

*Jeremy and Audrey met on a blind date before church.

*He says if he could do his childhood over again, he wouldn't change having the cameras there.

*Jeremy wants to take over the farm one day to keep the pumpkin patch going, open a studio and explore other business opportunities. He wants to raise his kids on the farm.


Here is a transcript or summary of what Jeremy talked about.

------------------------

Hi everyone my name is Jeremy Roloff and I'm going to do a Q&A here  because my facebook page just past 190,00 which is incredible so just to say thank you guys for your interest and following me so I'll answer your questions.

I'm gonna kinda jump right into it at the very end and answer the most liked questions and also let you guys know about this awesome project I'm launching in the next couple weeks.

Question: What is Audrey's new job in Los Angeles?

Audrey got hired on by E & J Gallo which is a really large winery and they were generous enough to delay her start date until after our wedding so now she's working for them as a sales rep here in Los Angeles.

Question: What are the pluses and negatives of living such a positive life?

Most of the negatives I would say I consider them challenges more than really like negative things; negative things for having been on television. So if I were to say this is a negative thing, not necessarily so, but there's been a lot of challenging things or situations that I've found myself in or my family has found ourselves in that have been super super challenging.

Some of those would be having to watch what we say and what we do everywhere we go. The internet is written in ink and you can't really afford to make any mistakes so it gets tiring to have to watch everything you say....those are challenges, great opportunities to grow and push ourselves and flourish as a family and how we deal with things and the opportunities that are thrown at us which leads into the pluses: opportunities.

It's been really awesome to be on television and meet so many people and have our pumpkin business expand and flourish...just walking down the street and knowing people...it's just been a lot of fun and proven to be quite a big plus.

Question: Most twins have an unbreakable bond, do you find it hard to be separated from Zach?

Zach and I are really tight. We are great friends as far as being brothers go, but no, I don't find it hard to be separated from him. He's up north planning his wedding. I'm here happily married with Audrey so, do I miss him yes? Do I find it hard to be separated? No. I think we both are really enjoying where we're at.

Question: What happened to your grandparents, in the beginning they were always in the show and near the end they weren't in it.

This is true. It's because they moved to California. They used to live a half a mile from us then they moved to California. Essentially they just moved out of town.

Question: I notice in the last several episodes, including your wedding day, that there aren't a lot of signs of Jacob being around -- where has he gone and what is the reason for that?

To be honest, we started this a long time ago and Molly, Zach and I were just barely old enough to understand what was going on...and Jacob was not. So he was kind of just thrown into it and didn't really have a choice in the matter. So as he's gotten older, I guess he just realized 'I'm just not as into being in front of the camera as my siblings are or the rest of the family. He's just chosen to kind of show up when he wants to show up, participate but not necessarily over participate. So that's just Jacob....where Jacob's at right now, he's back at the farm finishing up his senior year in high school, taking care of our new puppy....so...yeah..

Question: How is the transition from long distance relationship to living together?

Incredible. Easier than I expected. Auj and I just had this extreme like passion to live with one another. We got married and it's been really easy filling in gaps . There's been a lot of  things that we're learning about each other which is super exciting and super fun. We enjoy working through all our problems because  the other side is always greener so we want to improve in the areas that you know might've been lacking in the long distance now that we have those areas where we are building and growing and really enjoying being married, so again sure this has been really good.

Question: How do you feel about your parents struggling with their marriage? Has it been really difficult for you and your siblings?

To be honest, that's a personal question so I'm going to keep it short. Nobody likes to see their parents struggle in their relationship, no one likes to struggle themselves in their own relationship. So has it been hard? Yes. Has it been this divisive wedge in our family? No.  I think we would all like to see them work it out and I think they are on the right path in doing so. So as far us kids go, we are just standing by and praying and being there in support for them.

What is your most treasured family tradition you plan on introducing to your future children?

That's a great question. One tradition I'd really like to continue assuming I'll be back on the farm is every single birthday growing up, my mother would design a scavenger hunt all over the farm. We would find clues to unlock this and that. All of our friends enjoyed it every year too.

Question: With you growing up as a celebrity of sorts with an open book family, how has your wife dealt with her new found stardom?

She's doing well. It's a hard thing to be thrown into. The beautiful thing about Audrey is she is 100% herself, you're going to get the same Audrey in front of 20 different people. That says a lot about who she is and her character. People really get that sense from her.

Question: Have you ever regretted doing the TV show?

Yes, of course. There's been times, man, what if we didn't do the TV show. But those quick regrets have been undermined by all the beauty and opportunities and experiences the show has given us.

Question: What kind of gear do you use?

I get this question a lot. I'm going to do a video explaining my kit, what I use, what I like to use, that's coming soon.

Question: Was life more difficult growing up with you being average size and your mom and dad not?

This is an interesting question I get quite a bit. I feel it's appropriate for me to turn it around and say "how was it for you growing up with average size parents?" Small parents is all I know. It was my life, my childhood. It was challenging at times because when you're a kid walking around and people are staring at your parents, you're like Mom, Dad, why are they staring at you....then you get older and realize it's because they're small and different.

Question: What has been your biggest argument as a married couple so far?

We haven't really had a really big argument so far, we both enjoy playing devil's advocate with one another and situations in general. We enjoy posing the opposite side. You don't necessarily agree with what you're saying, but you're challenging the other person. Sometimes it becomes this day long "argument" where we're battling each other on a concept, thought or theory.That's been our biggest wrestle so far. Okay, tone done on devil's advocate.

Question: What is your favorite Bible verse?

The verse that continues to pop up in my life and challenges me a lot and something I keep going back to is Matthew 10:39 and what it says is "Whoever find their life will lose it and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it." It's not really the most inspirational verse, but it is a verse that is super, super challenging for me and every time I read it, I re calibrate what it is I'm doing and where I'm at in life and where I'm going and my goals, objectives, cares, interests, likes and loves. It's the verse that gets into my core and re calibrates me, for that reason it's my favorite...one of the dreams of my life, we have such a short time here and I want to spend mine wisely.

Question: When you talk about having a family with Audrey do you worry about the possibilities of having a dwarf kid?

No, we don't worry about that at all. I think if we were to have a dwarf baby, there are some pretty awesome resources as far as that baby's grandparents are both little people, his uncle is a little person, the support and knowledge and resources he/she would have would be substantial which is awesome. Do we worry about that? Not at all.

Question: What did you see in Audrey the first time you saw her and how did you know she was the one for you?

When I first met Audrey, I remember there being this super, super mysteriousness about her...I didn't quite know her, I couldn't stereotype her to be honest. I couldn't sum her up in any box and that made me want to figure out, so I started my pursuit and very quickly on I remember coming home and saying "Mom, I'm going to marry this girl" and my mom kind of chuckled and smiled because I think she knew I wasn't kidding.

Question: I love that you and Audrey are so into old vintage things, where did that love and appreciation come from?

Yeah, both Audrey and love old vintage things even before we met, one of the things that drew us together. Maybe it's the stories behind them, like you see a typewriter and who owned that and what was written on it? It's really stimulating to us.

Question: Canon or Nikon and why?

Canon. Why? It's what I happen to have and own. It's a historic debate. Both awesome pieces of equipment. I just happen to own a canon and really enjoy the ergonomics on a Canon.

Question:   What inspires you the most about photography and why?

That's a great question. I really like that. It's not the gear you use that makes photography, it's exactly this...why, what inspires me. I love being able to portray things from my perspective. I grew up in an interesting household on an awesome farm and want to share the inspiration I felt and share what I see from my vision.

Question: Congratulations on your wedding and beautiful ceremony. Will you be selling prints of your photography anytime soon?

Yes, I will be selling prints really soon. At the end of the video I will let you guys know about something I'm going to launch in the next few weeks.

Question: Would you ever do a coffee table book of your work?

That's definitely in the plans. I don't know when that's going to be, but I would love to do it.

Question: Please tell us about yours and Audrey's faith and what role it has played in your marriage?

That's a really big question. For Audrey and I our faith is the reason and rhyme behind everything we do, so as far as what role? It doesn't necessarily have a role as that is our marriage.It has a huge role in how we treat each other and others and what we believe.

Question: What you ever felt guilty about being the taller of the twins and has this ever come up between you and Zach?

Guilty, I wouldn't say so guilty. Has there been times when I've analyzed my situation vs Zach, yes, but I don't think I'd translate that as guilt.

Question: When did you really encounter the Lord and how is it changed your life?

 I found Jesus...well, I accepted Jesus at a Billy Graham concert with my Mom a long, long time ago. I would say I re-found and grabbed my faith for my own honestly right after high school. High school was great and everything, but I would say I had an "Ah-ha" moment with my faith right after high school so first year of college at PCC.

Question: Have you thought about opening up a photography shop on the farm and do you do wedding photos or old time pics?

I do shoot wedding and I do video weddings with my friend Tye French, our company is www.likealetter.com you can go there and check out all of our videos. We've been shooting weddings for about 3 years now. As for the studio on the farm, I would love to one day be back on the farm and open a studio and do portraits and tackle it up north in Portland but for now I'm in West Hollywood and enjoying it, we'll see where it leads.

Question: What was the hardest part of your long distance relationship and how did you stay so strong in your time apart?

This is something Audrey and I get asked a lot and we've been highly considering writing a book on the topic honestly. A short little book that just kind of goes through what we've learned, our challenges, how we got through it, what we feel was beneficial, what we feel hurt our relationship, so that's a book we're going to try to explore. Let me know in the comments if that's something you guys would be interested in.

Question: Please explain hashtage #braidit , it was even in Audrey's vows and I've been curious for quite some time now.

That's going to be in one of Audrey's blog posts, www.aujpoj.com , that's Audrey's blog and that's where she shares her take on things. She will be doing a blog post very soon on what #braidit means.
We get that question a lot, everyone wants to know.

Question: Have you ever thought about writing a book about growing up on a reality show?

Yes I have. Maybe one day that will come down the pipes. Right now I'm focusing on photography and video and media. I definitely think that would be a real interesting idea.

Question: Did you and Audrey pay for your wedding?

Audrey and I paid for things that were really important to us like photography and video that went outside of the budget, but Audrey's father kept with tradition and paid for the wedding so I'm super thankful to Dan for that.

Question: What is one thing you and Audrey would like to cross off your bucket list together?

I'm tempted to say we want to ski Switzerland. I've been to Switzerland with my father as some of you might have seen a while ago on the show, but the question says "together", so Audrey and I would love to go on a ski trip together in Switzerland. Either that or road trip through the states.

Question: How and when did you and Audrey meet?

Funny story, we actually met on our very first blind date ever. We had two mutual friends that were dating. He said "Jer come to dinner and we'll go to church". Audrey's friend, his girlfriend, was like "Auj, come to dinner, we'll go to church". We both showed up. We got along but it wasn't until a year or two years later that we really started dating. So it was a blind date before church.

Question: I'm dying to know where Audrey buys her clothes? Also, what is that signature lipstick we always see her wearing?

For this one I will let Audrey respond for you guys.
Audrey: To answer the first one, I buy most of my clothes from Free People or Anthropologie. I actually worked there part time when I was in college and I buy a lot of my clothes from Goodwill, so I like the treasure hunt. My favorite lipstick is Chanel Lip Stain it's called 'Very Red' for like $30 and it doesn't rub off on Jer's lips or cheeks. So that's my favorite and of course I love all the Mac mac lipstick as well.

Question: What is your favorite food that your mom always made you?

I have my mom make me every single birthday as far as I can remember chicken enchiladas and she made the best chicken enchiladas I've ever had. It became a favorite for all my friends as well.

Question: If you could live your childhood over again, would there be cameras there recording it? When people ask if I regret the show, I tell them if I could do it all over again, I would. I think that says a lot about how the experience has been.

Question: Who is your favorite photographer?

My favorite photographer is a guy named Erik Almas. He's a commercial photographer based out of San Francisco. He does commercial work and has been a really big inspiration for me and my work. He's helped me direct my compass as far as where I want to go, that goal, that benchmark I would like to be at one day.

Now we are here at the 4 most liked questions. I said I'd save those for last so here they are:

Question: How soon before you and Audrey have kids?

That's funny because Auj and I have this little banter back and forth. She's saying a couple of years, I'm saying a couple of more years in a couple of years. The funny thing about having kids is that it can be an accident. So if I were to give out something we're planning, I would say 2 to 4 years would be our number. Yeah, we're definitely not ready for that yet.

Question:  Would you consider doing a reality television show of your own with Audrey?

Yeah, that's definitely something that has crossed our minds. We've tinkered with the idea and entertained the thought. We'd be all about doing one of those The Amazing Race or Dancing With The Stars we think those would be really fun and those are great to watch. But as far as an actual reality television show about us? Not too sure. It would have to be the right show and we'd have to be in the right scenario or situation to say yes. It's also something where we'd have to think 'Do we want to put our kids through that?' It's an interesting question. Not too sure about that one.

Here is the 2nd most like Question.

Question: What do you think about your mom and dad and their separation?

Everyone's relationships go through rough patches of course and my parents are definitely experiencing that right now and there relationship is on television so that's a huge extra added stress for them. Honestly I think their separation in its own unique way has been beneficial, it has allowed them both to kind of reclaim who they are re-evaluate where they are in their relationship, and the kids are gone and what are we doing and where are we going, like who are we...so I think it's definitely had it's pluses and I just hope that with those pluses comes a solution. So I think a lot of people are hoping and praying that they figure that out.

Here we are at the most liked question:

Question: Will you and Audrey ever come back to Oregon and take over the family business?

To be frank about it, yes, we would love to find ourselves back on the farm, keeping the Patch going, opening a studio, explore other business ventures. The farm is definitely where I want to raise my kids and where I'd like to see myself in...I don't know how many years, but it is definitely where I'd like to find myself settling down.  Returning to the farm at some point is definitely in the plans.

That concludes the questions. Thank you everyone for participating.I hope I answered them all. I might do this again sometime soon so stay updated.

Now to address the photos and where you guys can start purchasing some prints and whatnot. I've been working on a project called LifeOrBust. I'm sure many of you who follow me on twitter or Instagram have seen my #lifeorbust . The website is www.golifeorbust.com There you will be able to read about my philosophy and concept behind images and prints and why I take images and you'll see stories behind specific images. You'll also be able to subscribe and have subscriptions for a monthly print with some other goodies to show up at your door every month. I think that will be a super awesome, super affordable way for a lot of people to just get showered with inspiration. That's kind of my goal to find a way to get images out and have them hanging up on people's walls. There will also be somewhere on the site a place to buy individual prints. I'm really excited to get that launched and out and get you guys some prints and get stuff hanging on some walls.

Again, I really appreciate it. I look forward to your comments and in the description will be a few links to the websites I talked about. See you guys around. Cheers.

Guest Opinion Article: Jacob Roloff's Social Media Disrespects Jeremy & Audrey Roloff's Wedding, Christians and Jesus

The following opinion article was emailed to the Spiritswander Blog requesting that we publish it. It was sent by a reader and frequent commentator to the Spiritswander Blog items. A reader, by the way, who is often critical of the Spiritswander Blog. However, they made a plea for fairness in allowing their article to be seen.

All of the opinions expressed belong to the author of the article Anne Bailey. Spiritswander has always tried to allow people with all sorts of opinions to express themselves whether they had positive or negative things to say about the Roloffs. The Spiritswander Blog has in the past published items at the request of people who have emailed. After some deliberation, I have decided to let the person express themselves although I personally do not agree with some of the sentiments.

Everything below is the opinion of and written by Anne Bailey:



Jacob Roloff Disrespects Jeremy & Audrey Roloff's Wedding, Christians & Jesus

Written by Anne Bailey


















"Our wedding day is about far more than a day in a dress. It is about becoming one by the powerful Grace of God. It is a picture of the love that Christ has for us. I hope that our love can forever reflect that image." – Audrey Mirabella Botti Roloff ~ September 20th, 2014.

Audrey Roloff's beautiful wedding vows perfectly reflect why Christians love and have supported the Roloffs in all their ventures for the past decade. Particularly, it captures the reason why I, as a Christian, have so much respect for Jeremy and Audrey Roloff.

Another Christian on Twitter, tweeted Audrey this, which Audrey Roloff retweeted October 1, 2014 

@audreybotti look forward to it! Prayed for you guys this morning. Love that you put God first and realize it's all about Him.

This brings, joy, love and inspiration to love Jesus more to all who are Kingdom seeking (as Jeremy writes on his Instagram biography).

Who could not be filled with pure joy and love of Jesus on that beautiful day? Only someone with darkness in their heart. Only someone who has hostility towards God and Jesus' followers. Only someone whose desire it is to turn the confused and doubting against Jesus. Who could be present at Jeremy and Audrey Roloffs wedding and not be over-whelmed with joy during the festivities?










































Yes. It is Jeremy's own brother, Jacob Roloff.
The above GIF is from the wedding festivities.
It exposes his true emotion. Disgust.
You don't need to be an expert in body language and facial expression to see what was going on there.
It is indicative of Jacob's disdain for celebrations that give glory to Jesus.

Look at the clip again. You can see Jacob Mueller, a Christian himself and Jeremy's best friend for many years, raise his hand and cheer in celebration at the words being spoken. You can see others in the frame and outside also react in approval at what they are hearing.

And there is Jacob Roloff. You can see the look of  disgust on his face and the darkness in his eyes.
Why is Jacob Roloff the only one not acting in kind? Why is he not celebrating with the rest of Jeremy and Audrey's friends and family who were there to support their union under the eyes of God?

Unfortunately, it didn't end there.

September 20, 2014. As viewers, as people scrolling the internet, they witnessed the beautiful wedding of Jeremy and Audrey. Now imagine being a sibling of the happy couple on the day that they become one for Christ.

That is what the day was about. Celebration. Joy. The Love of Christ.

Jacob Roloff? Here is his twitter account on September 20, 2014. Yes this is his brother's wedding day.  Did the festivities inspire him? Bring him closer to Christ? Was he willing to listen and be inspired by all of the great Christians at the wedding? What was on his mind?

He tweeted profanities throughout the day. He did not mention the wedding. He complained about other random things. He tweeted out curse words again.

For the purpose of this article, I scrolled back to document for all who will read my article exactly how Jacob was expressing himself on Jeremy and Audrey's wedding day.

However, I have discovered, that as is the case with most people who are not guided by Jesus, they are without character, without morals, they lie, they deceive, that is what they do because they think they are not accountable to anyone. That is what Jacob is....yes my friends the cowardly Jacob has tried to deny deplorable behavior. He lies like the devil. He is a bad person. There is no light of God inside of him. He will write something or do something. Then if he does not like the reaction, Jacob will deny what he did and call others liars. People without God do those types of things. They don't care about truth. That is why they deny God.

Yes, Jacob has now deleted his tweets that he made on September 20th, 2014. If you look at his twitter page now you will see tweets on September 19 and the next one doesn't appear until September 21st. The date September 20th has now magically disappeared. It is not because he wasn't tweeting that day.

I saw Jacob's behavior on twitter on Audrey and Jeremy's big day. I was outraged. Many others were outraged and expressed it here and in other places on the internet.

The only tweet that remains is this piece of profanity. Although it is dated September 21st, you can see he made it at 12:15am, still the night of the wedding.






















Also, in the Spiritswander article the day after the wedding:

http://spiritswander.blogspot.com/2014/09/jeremy-roloff-and-audrey-botti-are.html

Spiritswander did copy Jacob tweets from that day: This is what was on Jacob's mind the very day he gains Audrey as a sister and Jeremy marries the love his life in front of family, friends and God.

Jacob Roloff @ffoloR_bocaJ · I'm soOoOoo ready to road trip and get lost by myself somewhere new 

Jacob Roloff @ffoloR_bocaJ · With a GoPro and some vibrams... Man that's all I want 


Jacob Roloff @ffoloR_bocaJ · Not looking forward to tomorrow @ alllll



Jacob Roloff is at the wedding of Jeremy and Audrey. Almost all others in attendance are Christians who love Jesus just as much as the Bride and Groom. Jacob is supposed to be happy for Jeremy and Audrey. He is soaking in the festivities and Jacob decides to get on twitter and tweet about....

A) How he wants to leave
B) About wanting selfish material goods: a camera and shoes
C) Complain about tomorrow.
D) Express hatred and use profane language

What is wrong with Jacob Roloff you ask? He doesn't have Jesus, that's what is wrong with him.

I have shown you the visual of Jacob on Jeremy and Audrey's beautiful wedding day. I have shown you the written of Jacob (although he sneakily tried to hide his actions) on the wedding day.

It goes beyond one day. Jacob's hostility towards God and Christians is simply deplorable. He attacks Jesus when he mocks Christians. When he mocks what Christians believe in, he is mocking Jeremy, his own brother! He is mocking Audrey! Now his sister. Does Audrey deserve to be mocked for expressing for faith? Does Audrey deserve to be mocked for praying to Jesus?

How can any good person watch Audrey's wedding vows condone mocking her for the complete faith she has in the power of Jesus?

Jacob gets worse. Yes, Jacob gets worse.

In the week leading up to the biggest day of her life, Audrey was understandably concerned about the weather for the wedding, Saturday September 20th, 2014. It was supposed to rain all day...according to the "experts".































As all good Christians, Audrey knows that all blessings from God. Audrey asked Him for help. That is what she did. Many Christians such as myself joined with Audrey in praying that Jesus would bless Jeremy and Audrey with sunshine.

A great miracle began to happen as Audrey demonstrated on her twitter as the wedding approached:































Just two days before the wedding, it just kept getting better as though God was trying to reassure Audrey.































As anyone who watched the wedding on TLC knows, God came through and granted Jeremy and Audrey with a beautiful day that matched their love for Him. Audrey proved what Jesus followers know, always turn to Jesus for help.

However, Jacob took a beautiful thing and made it ugly. Jacob mocked what Audrey did and the entire concept of it when it was brought to his attention on his Ask.fm.

[Questions in red, Jacob Roloff's answers in blue]

Do you believe in the theory that if it doesn't rain next Saturday for Jer and Audrey's wedding that it's because God is rewarding them for being Christians?

Lmao, no, I'm 90% sure this is a joke but knowing some of these people, maybe it isn't. 

Why would you think it's a joke? Audrey is the one praying for no rain. Do you think she's being ridiculous? I don't understand how believing that praying for no rain could make a difference is that much different than believing if they get what they want it's because God is rewarding them. 

You can call what you pray to God, but a human figure in the sky isn't what created the universe haha

You should be ashamed of yourself that "strangers" are following your sister-inlaw's prompting and praying with her that God will bless them with a beautiful wedding day, while you snark and giggle at the "man in the sky". You're so disrespectful. 

So you think there's actually a human in the sky watching everyone? Uh, anyways.. I'm not disrespectful for disagreeing and doing the exact same thing as you just with the reverse opinion 

How do you like them apples? Since we (I'm including Audrey, myself and like-minded Christians fans of the show that support Jeremy and Audrey) began praying, the forecast has changed and is now "mainly sunny". The power of prayer. 

Yea! Nothing to do with nature! Haha fuck meteorology And Jer knows what I think he's probably seen it somewhere,"

What created the Universe? 

Better yet, No one knows, but if I'm to believe any theory there's more interesting ones than what's in Genesis 

"but a human figure in the sky isn't what created the universe haha" Do you ever have the guts to say this to Jeremy and Audrey? Or are you only this obnoxious to Christian fans of the show who provide you with the lifestyle you enjoy? 

If you're so butthurt about "providing my lifestyle", stop watching the show log off of this and shut the fuck up haha.. And Jer knows what I think he's probably seen it somewhere, I know what he thinks, we don't need to argue about it 

But you don't actually have the guts to say it to him? You just mock his beliefs online but can't actually say it to his face. When you mock the practices of Christians you aren't just mocking "insignificant" Christians fans. 

As I've said before, There's absolutely no REASON for me to just go and say this to him, that's just confrontational and obviously we'll disagree. Not everyone needs everyone to agree with them or be damned like you & so-called Christians like you 

Ok, so you just mock his religion behind his back. And you wonder why your Dad and everyone thinks you're a pussy lol.

I'm not mocking HIS religion you guys are the ones asking these questions lol, and I'm not hiding from him haha he knows I use this and twitter, I don't think you get the concept of what I'm saying, we know we'll disagree & a conversation about it isn't gonna get us anywhere, so WHY. For you guys: because you have nothing better to do. 

Why aren't up mature enough to talk to Jeremy and be open minded to what he has to say about it? Are you too stubborn to be open to the possibility that you are wrong? 

Lolol I was surrounded by it in church, school and family for 15 years, THEN I opened up, now I'm here 

You could be skeptical about Christianity without being so derogatory and without belittling. You don't even have the courtesy to let your family know you had doubts. You think your grandma would prefer to see you retweet anti-Christian BS.

Yea I could be, and lol. They know how I acted they knew I wasn't practicing any sort of Christian belief, & they don't seem to be upset or disappointed enough to talk to me lol, it's literally just you people.. I want you to know that.

People who are walking with God are never alone. I feel sorry that you don't know that. 

Thanks, your pity is bringing me closer to him I think! 

You'd be sad less often if you had Jesus in your life. People living with Jesus are happier and more fulfilled. And you choose to reject Jesus? It is very foolish on your part. 

Literally shut the fuck up hahah you think acting like everyone who doesn't believe is 'lost' is going to make them want to be more like you? Nope. You gotta worry about your own life and problems man for real haha. If God is all powerful he'll work it out Hes got a plan right? You can stop obsessing over this. 

Using curse words only have a negative affect on you and how people will perceive you. Can you come up with a better way to articulate your feelings than using curse words? 

Stop talking to me hahah nothing you're saying is useful to me nor is your general presence in my life, and I wish you had anything more exciting than this going on in your life so you could focus on actually acting Christian & not like a condescending, holier than everyone prick

Ask yourself why you bring pain and hurt to those who are in contact with you? There is something broken within you that causes you to hurt others. It is the work of the devil and only Jesus can save you. But He can. If you ask. 

Shut the fuuuuck uuuup. 



The last few were Christians trying to help him, trying to save him, and he responds with hatred and profanity.The darkness abounds.

My Christian friends. That is what we are dealing with. That is Jacob Roloff. A person who shows disrespect during his own brother's wedding. A person who mocks the Christian beliefs of his sister in-law Audrey Roloff. Jeremy's biography on his Instagram states that he is Kingdom seeking. Jacob has also scoffed at the concept of Heaven.

He has no morals. He is not a good person. He curses. He insults almost everyone. As I demonstrated earlier, Jacob lies and deceives. He's a drug user. He's admitted to doing Acid and taking Xanax. He lets the world know that he smokes marijuana all the time. He promotes it to other young people, attempting to spread the false message that marijuana is harmless and good for people. People don't need marijuana. People need Jesus.

Jacob Roloff has nothing but disdain for Christians and Jesus. He has no respect for his family. I've talked about Jeremy and Audrey as Christians who inspire. Matt and Amy, although they are human with flaws, both are followers of Christ and have spoke of God on public pages and given speeches to religious groups. Molly Roloff, although, not very active on social media, is also a good Christian who got flack from the liberals with a gay agenda when Molly supported Kirk Cameron's comments that he made on CNN. Zach Roloff avoids social media but is a Jesus follower as is his fiancee Tori. Both Matt's and Amy's parents are Christians. Ron and Peggy Roloff are truly wonderful Christians and Americans. I know Jacob disappoints them greatly with his deplorable tweets and "answers".


Jacob has no respect for his family, for Christians as a whole, and for the Christians who support his way of life. He is using the very platform that Christians (due to our support) have given him to spread anti Christian rhetoric to his followers. Jacob has admitted that he is after as many twitter followers as he can get. He knows most of those followers are fans of the show. He knows that most fans of the show are Christians just like Jeremy and Audrey. He constantly is spewing out anti-Christian sentiments and mocking Christian rituals.

We, as Christians, if we love Him, cannot allow Jacob to continue to corrupt his audience, many of whom are under 20 years of age just like Jacob.

Jacob is not in control. Jesus allows us to have the control. Aside from simply praying that Jacob comes to Jesus seeking forgiveness, there are people above Jacob who have control over him. Who can knock Jacob off the internet and prevent him from spreading his ugliness and corrupting people who are on the verge of coming to Jesus.

As I wrote (along with other Christians) a while ago, we, Christians fighting for Jesus have the power. We have an action plan to stop Jacob's use of public social media accounts and to make sure TLC and the sponsors know that we don't want Jacob seen on the show. It is not a boycott of Little People, Big World, TLC or the Roloffs. They are all wonderful with the one awful exception of Jacob. He does not belong. It is the way to stand for Jesus after all He has done for us and prevent Jacob from working against the growth of God's Kingdom.

You can email bailey.anne83@hotmail.com for more information.

We are winning the battle my friends. We are emerging victorious because we have God on our side. Some influential people have informed me that Jacob has had his backside slapped for his disrespect to Jesus and to Christians including his family and viewers of the show. I have been told to expect to see it removed eventually.

We have already seen a decrease in Jacob's rants against Christianity. I am of the understanding that Jacob has been told he is allowed to save some pride and present it as though it his decision to discontinue his social media.

After I (and others who have joined the fight for Jesus over Jacob) was informed that would happen after writing several organizations, people and corporate entities, there has been a decrease in it.

Then just 3 days ago came this, which is exactly what I was told would be Jacob's escape plan to save his ego.















Christians. Pray. Turn to Jesus. Just like we did with Audrey asking Jesus for a sunny day to celebrate the union of Jeremy and Audrey, when you trust in Jesus, He will see that the outcome is just.

It is up to us to see that hateful sinners like Jacob have a minimal voice while Jeremy and Audrey Roloff reach the masses and have the ability to inspire more and more to seek Jesus and give God the ultimate glory in building His Kingdom.

Spiritswander: State Of The Union Regarding Blog Comments And Discussion Topics

As people have noticed, the blog has been in a self-imposed hiatus over the Holidaysthe last couple of days while some comments (on both sides) were getting out of hand.

 So this is a Spiritswander "State of the Union" as I re-iterate the purpose of the Blog and some of the rules of what will or won't be tolerated. Let me start by saying I realize that nothing I implement is going to please everyone but I am making the decisions I feel is best. There were pending comments from people with opposing points of view which both felt that "the other side" were receiving preferential treatment on the blog. So I understand that nothing will please everyone.

First, Spiritswander: "Keeping Up With the Roloffs" exists as an independent place where people can discuss the public figures The Roloffs. Just as mainstream entertainment sites like US, People, TMZ, RadorOnline, E-Online, discuss the activities of major Celebrities or Independent Online Sites discuss Sports Leagues, we discuss The Roloffs for people who choose to do so.

 Especially when the show is not currently airing, this often means people posting their opinions of the Roloff family members and discussing their social media with other people who are aware of the Roloffs history. Given Jacob's tendency to speak his mind on his beliefs on a variety of controversial issues (very unlike the rest of the Roloffs) I think it is understandable that his public social media does attract attention and discussion, both positive and negative.

In the last week while I have put comments on hold, it is quite clear that there is a demand to use the Spiritswander Blog as a place where people are free to post their opinions on a Roloffs public social media account. I don't have a problem with that.

In fact, someone who formerly went to Jacob's high school emailed privately to state they think the public should be able to comment on what is on Jacob's public twitter account and they don't mind if people reference their account (Jacob was recently involved in an argument with many former classmates from the public high school he attended the last few years).

The Spiritswander Blog have strived to allow people to express all kinds of opinions, both pro and con regarding the Roloffs. If people are interested in discussing something, we generally allow discussion of it. And sometimes allowing people to express themselves shed light on that person's own character.

Matt and Amy Roloff both have traditional social media for Public Figures. Some would describe it as "safe" or "fake". Basically existing to promote the Roloff brand. Zach Roloff doesn't have public social media so he is not discussed. Molly Roloff does but it is rare and I think it is fair to say what she does put forth publicly does not captivate the interest of observers of the Roloffs. Jeremy and Jacob Roloff both have active social media so it is natural that they are the subject of discussion. Regardless of if I agree with opinions expressed, if people want to discuss their feelings on Jeremy or Jacob based on their social media content, again I don't have a problem with that. If you are uninterested or think it's boring for people to discuss a public figures social media than no one is forced to visit the blog or read the comments.

The grey area that has come up is comments regarding people who are not public figures but are heavily associated in the Roloffs public social media. I do think it is natural and understandable that if a public figure Roloff chooses to publicly discuss a subject, whether it be their dog or their girlfriend, that people naturally are going to start posting their opinions on the dog, on the girlfriend. Especially, if this is a daily occurrence and the other person chooses to have a public account and be active with interacting with the public figure.

 I will point out that long before Audrey was married or engaged to Jeremy and prior to her being introduced to LPBW viewers on the show, Audrey was a top search topic associated with Jeremy Roloff both on our blog and on Google in general based on how often she interacted with him on his social media and the amount of time he was referencing her.

However, some of the comments, regardless of whether some people feel they were spurred on or instigated by the people talking about their comments on another site, some of the comments were just getting out of hand. Although we do want people to express opinions on the blog, we don't have to enable people to genuinely hurt others by making comments that are cruel. So it had reached a point where it was time to temporarily pull the article with the subsequent comments.

To clear up a couple of rumors, no Roloff contacted Spiritswander privately asking/requesting/demanding that the Anne Bailey article be removed. That was completely my decision to let things cool down.

I will also say, that no one referenced in the comments recently, contacted the Blog privately to request that they not be discussed. This did happen quite some time ago with another friend of the Roloffs or their family member who asked that they not be discussed on the blog. Although I didn't have an obligation to do so (again, they did have public social media and interacted with Public Figure Roloffs on their accounts), I did honor their request.

 On the flip side, it is true that some people associated with the Roloffs do think it's neat that people take an interest in discussing them and don't have a problem with being noticed.

It was also brought to my attention that Jacob's ex-girlfriend Stephanie was asked about people linking her public You Tube channel/her videos and she replied "Yes it is completely fine!"

So Anne Bailey's article will appear on the blog again shortly. However comments, especially about the non Roloffs, which are simply mean-spirited will be under scrutiny. Unlike some other sites where Roloffs were discussed, we have never allowed personal attacks based on appearance regarding either the Roloffs or their friends. Although I understand that some claim that subjects mentioned were brought up by the person themselves on public social media, if comments are mean spirited, than they simply serve no purpose.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays To All!

Jeremy and Audrey Roloff's Wedding Video and Blog Of Their Move to LA

Jeremy and Audrey  Roloff have shared their Wedding video that they had put together. It was made by "Moving Picture Weddings".

The 2:53 video includes different parts of the wedding that viewers did not see in the wedding episode that was aired on TLC -- More of Jeremy and Audrey's vows are heard in this video and a bit more of the speeches.


Watch the video here






In other Jeremy and Audrey news, they left Oregon for their apartment in LA.



















































Unfortunately, it did not get off to a good start as Audrey tweeted that she broke her foot 10 minutes into unpacking the Uhaul.

http://twitter.com/audreybotti


"God must just likes to bless me with lots of stories... Broke my foot 10 minutes into unloading the u hual..."






















There also are pictures on the photographer's website/blog.

http://montanadennisblog.com/?p=3814


Audrey tweeted and Instagrammed more about her broken foot.




Already dreaming about being back here.... On Friday Jeremy and arrived at our appartment in LA. 15 minutes into unloading the u-hual, I rolled my ankle on the curb while carrying in our mattress. A couple hours later I went to the urgent care only to see the line through my broken right foot on the x-ray results. I left with crutches. Oh the familiarity.... The next day Jeremey worked an all-day job which left me at our appartment alone with no power, no food, no hot water, no internet, no where to sit and unable to leave or accomplish anything. HUMBLING. Then I come to find out that I can't start my job until my foot is completely healed, 3 weeks. Through blurry eyes I hear The Lord whisper, "don't let Satan get a 'foothold.' I am writing your autobiography. It's a book of relentless stories, and I am gifting you with a voice to share them in My name." Ok Lord, I will. www.aujpoj.com (once I have internet and can post them) But I still hate crutches. Hate. #alwaysmore #aujpoj #journeyofjerandauj

 Audrey also just posted about their move to LA on her blog. You can read Audrey's blog here: http://www.aujpoj.com/2014/10/19/larchives/

New Episode of Little People, Big World Featuring The Roloffs: "A Roloff Gets Married" On TLC Sept 30

The new episode of Little People, Big World airs tonight on TLC at 10:00 PM. It is the episode "A Roloff Gets Married".

Here is a quick preview and then a review:


Little People, Big World (Season 10)

A Roloff Gets Married! TV-PG

Jeremy and his bride-to-be, Audrey, feel equally nervous and excited as they complete the final details for their wedding. Meanwhile, Matt falls seriously ill and everyone worries he will not be able to attend his son's big day.


------------------------------------------------------

Guest Episode Review written by Rap541:

Ah, the wedding episode!

Some previous scenes of Matt and Amy arguing.


So its one month to the wedding and we get the trade out parade. Huh, they basically are getting the dress on extremely short notice even though it normally takes six months… funny that. I actually liked the first one she tried more than the second, or the third. I find it interesting that there seems to be some unexplained rush to the wedding.

Now Jeremy and Zach are getting custom suits for their product placement tradeouts. Also Zach is Jeremy’s best man. Jeremy’s wedding colors are “floral”.

Three weeks to the wedding. To keep with a long running theme from many episodes, Jeremy has dreamed of getting married on the farm since he was a wee little boy. It’s probably the first time we’ve heard Jeremy speak more than a sentence or two and he’s still not very articulate. He’s also pretty openly planning to own the land and have his own house there.  Which is interesting, his assumption about getting it

.
Two weeks to the wedding and we’re getting more tradeouts. Jeremy sounds and looks bored as hell at the table setting 
odyssey. To give Audrey some credit, she seems quite in love. 

Jeremy, in his haybale about his new mom in law looks totally bored.

Now Jeremy is taking his mom to lunch because he just wants to hang out with her. He looks like he’s got a limb in a trap and wants to gnaw it off the whole time. Seriously, this scene was really forced. So Audrey is working, and Jeremy is not.


Oh look it’s Matt’s drama. He’s possibly dying and very clearly lies on camera when he says “Jeremy’s wedding is next week”. Now Amy is heading over to his man cave for the first time and takes him to the doctor. Amy also lies about this happening “a week before Jeremy’s wedding”.

Look, I know a number of you are going to bitch and moan so here’s my objection. Was the lie necessary? Because it is a lie – per Matt’s facebook, he was in the hospital as of Aug 22…. Which FYI is not “a week before Jeremy’s wedding” – so does the lie add anything?


Now we’re “five days to the wedding” and Zack and Jeremy are merrily stating dad is still in the hospital as they head off to paintball with huh, product placement folks. Gosh it’s like this wedding is getting a whole shit ton of freebies for selling their private moments.  And huh, per the show, Matt is theoretically in the hospital until three days  before the wedding which leads Jeremy to sagely lie to us how worried he is that Dad won’t make it to the wedding.


Matt concedes that it’s awkward for his wife that he left to tend him as its three days before the wedding and he’s JUST OUT OF THE HOSPITAL.
So in other words, when it comes to the show, Matt really has no problem lying if it makes him the center of attention.


Oh look, Matt is of course up and about for the wedding. To be fair it looks nice. I personally like that Matt actually gave Amy a genuine compliment for a change.


There’s a nice shot of Audrey pre-makeup, and she should go natural more often. That’s a complement by the way. Somehow Audrey ended up with a used dress that she bought on line? Because that doesn’t quite jibe


Now we have WonderJer dressing. Then Zack and Jer have a nice moment as brothers. Then Audrey is presented with a cow brand. Oh look! There’s special hashtags to unlock wedding photos! I wonder if Jeremy and Auj were monetarily compensated for these commercials?


Matt quickly lets Jeremy know how nervous etc he was. Honestly, this is all pretty typical wedding stuff. Is the preacher the famous John Mark Comer? Matt calls Jeremy a man. The bridal party is huge and one of them is holding a sign that says “sexy baby”?


Is that Audrey’s dad holding a sign saying “she’s yours”.  I like the color of the flowers in Audrey’s hair.  Jeremy’s vows did not involve sharing her with Jesus, interestingly enough. Audrey’s did, I will give her that. But seriously folks, I’ve been to some Jesusy weddings and this was pretty plain jane in comparison.


I did like the shots in the flowers. The reception also looked nice. In fairness this wedding looked a ton better than any of the “wedding” episodes . Zach’s speech was cute, Matt of course chokes up. I also think it was sweet that Amy and Jeremy danced.  And it was nice to see practical bridemaids dresses.


I really didn’t care for the hospital drama.

New Episode of Little People, Big World: "Another Roloff Pops The Question" September 23, 2014 TLC At 10:00 PM

The new episode of Little People, Big World airs tonight on TLC at 10:00 PM. It is titled "Another Roloff Pops The Question".

Here is a preview and then review:


With Jeremy’s big day just months away, Operation Wedding Preparation is in full swing on the farm. Following in his twin’s footsteps, Zach reveals he wants to marry the love of his life, girlfriend Tori, and he is ready to pop the question.


=======================================

Guest episode review written by Rap541:

Oh look, we’re up to Zach setting up a five episode arc for summer 2015. What, did Jeremy refuse to impregnate the wife on Matt’s demand?

So Zach is dating Tori for years, Matt totally hates Amy and Jeremy dimly notes he’s getting married.


Zach is chopping kindling for a fire for Tori and Zach. Zach notes how cruel girls are. Matt and Amy wander out to bitch about how small the fire is and also how scatterbrained Jeremy is. Amy and Matt are still bitter towards each other but would love to have Zach marry on the farm.


Operation Jeremy’s wedding is on and Matt is SCREECHING at no one. He’s up in the track hoe, and Matt notes he wanted and Jeremy in theory agreed to Matt merrily ripping up the landscaping because Matt needs attention. Matt notes how he hates Amy and tells Amy how he plans on Jeremy’s wedding working. Amy notes that Matt doesn’t value her opinion. This is endless bitching by Matt. Matt notes how Amy has no vision and how she is a hinderance to him. Amy notes how he doesn’t listen to her. Matt notes how Amy is an endless piece of trash in his way and tells her how her ideas in the way of his ideas. Seriously, its very very clear to me the Botti family has no input.


Oh hey Matt hurt himself and called Molly, not Amy. He then complains about his mobility and then rips off the cast to show the camera how he’s injured. Matt immediately makes the wedding about his injury.


Now we have scenes of Matt noting how he’s a pitiful wreck of a man who only wants the wedding to be good but he’s so grieviously injured he can’t even cap his toothpaste.
Matt tells Zach he has a dramatic injury. Zach immediately moves into “Hey, I am asking Tori to wed”


To be fair to Matt and Amy, they both seem very happy with Zach’s decision. Matt pointedly notes how it will be a wild ride for the next few years.


For some reason they are all taking out the shed. The kids love the shed, Matt hates the shed. There’s a ton of crap in the shed that’s basically a shrine to how the kids are spoiled.


Oh Jeremy’s opinion is what matter’s on the shed. Jeremy and Audrey make bagels and Jeremy pretends to be a chaste Duggar, as does Audrey. Funny how Jeremy “graduated” in April but is flying up to visit as his family busts ass to make his wedding happen.

Zach shops for engagement rings. This is a nice ad for the whole jewelry store.
Jeremy works on a car in his livingroom garage and Zach shows him the ring. Its all so forced.


Matt drones on how his hand is broken and how he wishes Amy would wait on him hand and foot. Molly wanders into the mancave house and Matt lets Molly know how physically miserable he is and how he’s in constant pain. Much like I suspected, Molly gets the whole farm business better than the boys and also Matt continues to note how miserable he is. He also notes how he is milking it.


Zach is waiting for the right moment for the cameras to catch the proposal. Oh look a commercial break right when Zach grabs for the ring!

Zach grabs for the ring as Tori talks about their private time in Australia. Then it gets awkward and Zach backs off despite the camera placement.


Matt the Martyr notes he’s finally going to see a doctor over his hand. He notes how dumb doctors are about his specialness. The doctor recommends a splint.


At the farm,Matt and Jeremy wander about the farm. No one seems to want to explain why Jeremy is away even tho he “graduated” in April and isn’t at Brooks finishing up over the summer. He’s certainly not referencing any job issues…. Jeremy is against the shed being removed.


There’s a bridal shower.  Oh look a commercial of Audrey and Jer offering hashtags for their weddings. I guess fans don’t need to suck your cock anymore, huh Jer? And if they like you, they shouldn’t fuck off and commit suicide, right? But they should check out your public wedding registry because you poor poor kids need marriage gifts from strangers to make it in the big city.


Now we’re at Audrey’s bridal shower. No sign of Audrey’s mom, lots of Amy Roloff and Molly. I think the dark haired lady near Amy is the mom but if there was an intro, I missed it. There’s cute gifts. I actually like the quilt gift Amy gives. Yup the mom is the dark haired lady with glasses although there’s no formal introduction.


Matt tries to impress us with how well he watches others lay sod.


Zach heads off to ask Tori to wed.

Oh huh, the proposal is on the farm for the cameras. Heh Tori is videoing her dog. It also seems a tad less exploited. . Good lord, can Amy stop acting like Zach is mentally incompetent. Matt asses his way about and notes how there will be new episodes for Zach’s wedding next summer and also manfully notes how lucky it is that Matt is even alive for all this as this is all about Matt.  There’s some cute photos.


Next week – hard to believe that Matt manages to nearly die right before Jer’s wedding but what a way to make the episode about Matt!
