So far we haven't rushed it as I don't believe you should. I'm [hoping] my mom wasn't too serious about refusing to babysit. But I think it'll be fun just to see if we can do it anyways.
As of now, the females in the family take her along with us when we use the bathroom. She pulls down her diaper or pullup and sits on the potty as well. We're hoping that once she feels it come out of her and into the potty, she will instantly get it. We even hand her a piece of tissue when we are grabbing some for ourselves and she wipes herself in the proper place with it. Other than letting her go diaper-less so we can rush her to the potty if she starts to do something and sitting her on potty every 30 minutes throughout the day, what should we do?

The book, Potty Training in Less than a Day, (the one written around 1973) has tons of hints. You feed the child salty snacks so she will be thirsty. This gives more opportunities for trying. It takes about 20 minutes from drink to pee, so use that to up the chances of success.
You also need to see if her bladder is up to the task as it's a developmental thing from both a physical and mental standpoint.
