Audrey Roloff: God Has Taught Me THESE Life Lessons…

Audrey Roloff is a woman of very strong conviction.

She's been very open about her faith and her devotion from family from the moment she came into our lives as a cast member on Little People, Big World.

She and husband Jeremy are no longer cast members on this TLC series, having announced their departure in July.

That said… Audrey is still around, still sharing posts on Instagram and still espousing her religion.

Below, for example, Roloff delves into her belief in God and into how this Higher Power has taught her a number of life lessons.

1. Audrey’s Opening Statement

“Your life has PURPOSE. Whether you can clearly define that purpose or not, God wants to purpose MORE out of your life RIGHT NOW,” Roloff wrote to open this lengthy message. “Not once you graduate, not once you’re married, not once you’re a mom, not once you get this job or move to that city. No.”

2. What Does God Want?

“He wants to purpose more out of your seemingly futile daily tasks, your to-do-lists, your surface level conversations, and your day-to-day. He created you for so much MORE than just living through moments.”

3. What Else, Audrey?

“He wants to fulfill His purposes through every part of your life – the big moments and the small moments, the celebratory moments and the heartbreaking moments.”

4. How Can One Figure All This Out?

Writes Audrey, acknowledging this major challege: “But discovering God’s purpose for your life can seem daunting… maybe you don’t know for certain what God has purposed you to do, or who He is purposing you to be.”

5. It Can Be So Hard to Figure It All Out

And there can be so many reasons to be confused, as Audrey also acknowledges: “Maybe you’re trying to figure it out, but you’re just not sure yet. Maybe you thought you knew, but then some life circumstance changed your course.”

6. Also, Along These Lines…

“Or maybe you have been so focused and determined in what you thought was your purpose, but now you feel like giving up because it’s still not bearing any fruit. Girl, I get you.”

Mama June Shannon: My New Boyfriend Taught Me How to Love Again!

Mama June Shannon is coming back with a second season of Mama June: From Not to Hot!

This time, she’s taking a stab at becoming a beauty queen. Yes, the erstwhile pageant mom is going to become a pageant contestant, putting to the test her new figure.

And she’s also seeing a mystery man. And though we have to wait to see him on the show, June can’t help but gush about him.

In the first season of Mama June: From Not to Hot, we saw a lot more than June Shannon’s weight loss struggle and powerful transformation.

Obviously, that was the primary, ongoing storyline — but this is reality television, folks. Not a medical documentary.

It followed June’s personal life and her “private” drama.

Including her ex’s engagement and marriage, which visibly rocked her to her core.

But now, it looks like it’s Mama June’s turn at finding new romance.

Mama June Shannon returns for a second season, and in one part of the big teaser, we see her daughters watching as she kisses an unidentified mystery man.

Apparently, June tries to avoid kissing and telling, but her daughters aren’t fooled.

Pumpkin says:

“I don’t know why mama is trying to say, ‘oh, I didn’t kiss him, I didn’t kiss him.’ We’ve seen it with our own two eyes.”

But … who is he?

Though Mama June’s taste in men in the past was so bad that Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo was literally canceled when she started dating a sex offender, June tells People that this guy’s the real deal.

“It’s hard to be able to trust somebody, and it was a lot of walls that he had to break down with me and the girls, honestly …..”

Well, given her romantic history, that makes sense.

“He’s my rock and my best friend. We’re together 24 hours a day.”

In case the 24/7 togetherness makes you worry, June clarifies that this isn’t something super clingy.

“I mean it’s kind of weird that we don’t really have to do anything. We can just chill at the house, or chill with the kids, or just go to the store.”

That’s a sign of a healthy relationship — platonic or romantic.

“I’ve never been able to enjoy somebody as much as I have him.”

That sounds wonderful … but also sad.

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson tells Life & Style that she’s delighted for her mother’s new relationship.

“I feel very happy because I’ve never seen her smile this much, I swear — ever in her life. She’s always grinning. Always grinning. She always says it’s the little things that matter and he does the little things.”

That’s great but, again … imagine never having seen your mother truly be happy before. That’s heartbreaking.

Mama June discusses the idea of marrying this man.

“For the first time in my life, I would say the [m-word] and Mama June in the same sentence — but a piece of paper isn’t going to change my love for him and it wouldn’t, ever.”

“Nowadays, you don’t have to get married to show that you love somebody,” June continues. “A piece of paper doesn’t show that.”

Of course, when asked if they would televise the wedding, Alana exclaims:

“You know you would!”

Honestly, we don’t know if June is commitment-shy or just leery of giving this mystery man access to her finances.

She is, after all, a millionaire. But then, prenups exist. So maybe she has her own reasons and shouldn’t be rushed, folks.

“Nowadays, you don’t have to get married to show that you love somebody. A piece of paper doesn’t show that.”


Jeremy Roloff: This is What Fatherhood Has Taught Me

Jeremy Roloff is a changed man.

He’s only been a father for a handful of weeks, but the Little People, Big World star says he can tell something is different.

And that something is centered around his faith.

Earlier this week, the new father of a precious baby named Ember Jean shared the above photo on Instagram and included with it the caption below:

Yesterday I had a dying to self moment. The realization that my life is not about me.

This baby is a part of the continual dying-to-self process that is nescessary to pursue holiness over happiness.

That’s profound stuff.

Typically, Jeremy leaves this kind of religious talk to his wife, as Audrey Roloff has been known to often gush over Jesus Christ and His teachings.

But having Ember has clearly brought something out in Jeremy.

If you pursue happiness over holiness, you may lose both, he continued, adding:

But if we pursue holiness, happiness may get thrown in. There is a selfishness deep down that I’m ashamed to say, almost resented the freedom and time that I am about to lose.

However, as it’s been said, nothing can truly be yours until you’ve fully given it away.

After an admittedly challenging opening few weeks as parents, Audrey and Jeremy have been sharing more and more pictures of their daughter, while also taking her on mini road trips.

Or stroller trips, we guess we should say.

In concluding his latest post regarding Ember and what he’s come to believe/realize, Jeremy wrote:

Jesus said it best, “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”

I want to live for the truth of holiness, not the facade of happiness.

I want to find my life and find it in the fullness and freedom of Christ.

Amen, right?

Whether or not you believe with absolutely everything Jeremy writes here or believes in general, his sentiment is that being a father has made him more selfless.

Isn’t that how it ought to be for everyone?


Kendra Wilkinson: I Taught My 7-Year-Old Son All About Sex!

That Kendra Wilkinson is always good for a cringe, huh?

If there’s anything you can count on her for, it’s to always say or do something so embarrassing that it will inspire you to cringe for the rest of your days. Or something about boobs.

Yep, Kendra is one of the most ridiculous individuals to ever exist, and though she has to know that about herself at this point, she’s making no effort to change.

In fact, as the years go by, she’s just getting zanier and zanier.

Well, “zany,” “inappropriate and alarming,” it’s all the same thing with her really.

This time, Kendra shocked us all by admitting in a new interview that her seven-year-old son, little Hank Jr., knows all about the birds and the bees.

Not by accident, either — the weird kid in second grade didn’t spill the beans on the playground or anything.

Kendra took it upon herself to let her son, who, again, is only seven years old, know the ins and outs of sex.

Bizarre, right?

“I have no shame,” she explained in the interview, like we didn’t know that already.

“I even tell little Hank sometimes, ‘Go to bed. Mom and Pop are going to have sex. We got to have some sex, Hank, okay? Go to your room. Play your video games.'”

So not only does her kid already know about sex, she told him about it so he would understand when to leave them alone.

It wasn’t some parenting belief she holds about being open and honest about everything with your children, it’s so he could entertain himself whenever she got an urge.

But it seems like after this little revelation, Kendra realized that perhaps what she said sounded a little strange: she added “You don’t understand. These kids know earlier and earlier now.”

Yes, Kendra. They know because, for instance, their parents teach them about it so they can have distraction-free sex whenever they please.

You know, just as an example.

Kendra also said that she not only teaches her kids about sex, she teaches them about anything and everything about her.

“It starts now with teaching them who I am,” she said. “They’ve been up to the Playboy Mansion. I have nothing to hide. And if you don’t have shame or regret.”

… And if you don’t have shame or regret, what? If you don’t have shame or regret then you can do things like take a seven-year-old and a toddler to the House That Porn Built?

If you don’t have shame or regret then you can do literally anything you want to under the guise of “hey, no shame or regret”?

Oh, Kendra. Who can keep up?!
