MckMama without pitty?

Ive wanted to blog about this for a long time but haven't taken the time to do it. Ive been a follower of MckMama for a long time. I think her blog is a story of sorrow and healing and victory. I think she blogs the truth, loves the Lord with all her heart, and isn't afraid to show it. I have a lot of respect for her. Her children are precious and her photography is amazing. More on MckMama in a minute.

I am also a follower of MWOP which stands for "MckMama without pity." I am not actually a follower but I pop in here and there because it astounds me, but not in a good way. This blog was put together for one soul destroy MckMama. Why do I even care about this you ask? Well, truly I don't really care that much about it but it is sad that these people put so much time and attention into destroying one person. Seriously? If you visit this blog its crazy to see how many comments are posted under each post. They number in the thousands. I cant imagine how much gossip and slander and lies these people are conversing about. Its destructive, a waste of time, and truly holds no purpose.

Mckmama started blogging before her little Stellan was born. Stellan was born with a heart condition and was not supposed to live....but he did. We all blog here in the blog world. Most of us blog about the trials in our lives or the tragedies that we are going through. Most of our blogs don't get much attention, we don't receive many comments, yet we still blog because its therapeutic. Jennifer's blog; however, did become popular and she did receive offers for adds that offered the chance to make money. What would you do if you had the chance to make money just for blogging? Would you do it? I sure as heck would. Bring me a chance to blog and make money, id take it any day. Its funny how jealousy can bring such hatred like I see on the blog MWOP. Jennifer is a great writer and now she makes money doing it, but she gets pounded into the ground for doing it as well. Cant we just sit back and enjoy her sweet family?

I'm not an eloquent writer like MckMama or my sweet Rebekah. I put my thoughts out there but they are usually jumbled around like a scrabble game. Its very refreshing to visit blogs that actually make sense, and are easy to read. I support MckMama. She is frail and week just like the rest of us. She is human and fails just like the rest of us. It only because of God living in us that we have even a semblance of goodness in us. Why do we need to gossip and tear down?

I just want to say...mmwop is disturbing! I am not an avid follower of Mcmama. I have checked her blog out a time or two. I think she is a gifted writer and photographer! It disturbs me to know that someone is so "hell bent" to discredit her! Makes me sick! Anyone who is married or has children knows that life can be hard!! STUFF HAPPENS!! Life is hard...why spread more disdain and hatefulness?!? Thanks for sharing your post! I'm with you:). Mollie

Wow! Very disturbing blog. What is more disturbing is how many people follow it.

People can be SO mean on here, it's really pitiful when adults act so juvenile. My heart just breaks for their children; they deserve much better moral training and guidence from their parents.

I also want to say that I am a new reader and I LOVE your blog...very encouraging! I look forward to your updates : )

First time commenter here. I found your blog a few days ago and actually like it alot even though I disagree with some things you have said about homosexuality. I like that you are real and not afraid to post the hard stuff. I have to disagree about Mckmama though. I was a reader of hers and although MWOP can tend to be overboard in their investigation, they have brought to light a lot of her lies and lack of credibility. There are a lot of followers of MWOP that were once Mckmama readers. I will leave my personal opinon of her off your comments because this is not the place, but I had to chime in.
Anyways, your kids are beautiful and I admire what you did with the adoption of precious TY. Keep up the blogging!

If I could make money from my blog, I would! She's a great Mama and although I'm not one of her followers I do like to pop in and look at her pictures and try out her recipes! People care way too much about issues that hold no eternal value. Get a life people - literally!

People also have blogs out there slamming people who write blogs about adoption and infertility. Now, I don't know about u, but my blog is generally what I am passionate about and if you are passionate about slamming people who have something totally beyond their control u have a real problem.
