Summary provided by:klf7412
Kendal is married to Daniel, and together they have 4 children; Evie (7 or 8), Brinley (5), Kapri (3), and Sebastian 'Sebi' (almost 2).
Kendal wrote a blog titled "The Father knows Best" and she became famous on FJ after writing a blog post where she wrote about a day of "hard discipline" and how her oldest daughter, Evie, thanked her Father for spanking her. This post caused an uproar on FJ and eventually, Kendal removed the post. However, a few FJ members have a screen cap of the post and it is frequently posted on Kendal-related threads.
Kendal has visited FJ once and skirted around questions about that famous post. During this visit she also mentioned that she "likes to be around spanked children". Shortly after coming here to "answer questions", she flounced.
Kendal has been the subject of many FJ threads for crazy views. She has written that she and Daniel will not be sending the girls to college, and that they are preparing them to be homemakers. Daniel likes to call the girls "future homemakers" and Kendal says that she would consider herself a failure as a Mother if her daughters wish to work outside of the home. Kendal thinks that every child should be homeschooled, period.
Kendal made FJ "headlines" again when she announced that her children were too holy for Christmas gifts and that instead, they would give gifts and a meal to the less fortunate. A day after Christmas, Kendal wrote a vague paragraph about the gift exchange that led many to believe that Kendal didn't get to go over to a strangers home with presents and a meal like she had wished.
Sometime in 2012, Kendal and Daniel began the process to adopt a child. This led to a very long FJ thread, and eventually a FJ member was able to find out that Kendal was pursuing a domestic adoption of an infant male.
Kendal once again became the subject of a long thread when she blogged about not making her children wear helmets when biking, because protecting their hearts was more important. After Daniel made multiple comments on the post defending Kendal's and his stance, he came home and announced that he would make the children wear helmets from then on. Within a few days of the post, Kendal announced she would be closing the blog. This "good bye" post was left up for a grand total of 2 hours before the whole blog disappeared, and only a few FJ members were able to see it. Many have speculated as to why she closed the blog, but most think that Daniel realized that Kendal's controversial topics and the presence of FJ could sabotage their adoption.
Here are some tid bits of info about Kendal/Kendal's blog:

Anyone think they're trying to debut this as a modern version of the Duggars? I hope they make this reason wreck into a series because I'm Satan.

From what I gather (can I have missed something?) this family isn't poor and doesn't have any particular insight to offer humanity. Why are they on TV? Does the American public need additional exposure to large, dysfunctional families with potty mouths?
I just don't see the appeal at all. They're excellent snarking material, though.1
I never understood Federal Vision to start out with, but that's probably because I take the position that the Calvin-following Reformers and their descendants have basically pulled most of their theology out of their (or Calvin's) ass.1

There is a delightful YouTube series on Depression Cooking by the late Clara Cannucciari. The series includes cooking & recipe demonstrations for better times as well.
She also published a book as well as issued a DVD of her videos.
Clara was a joy and an inspiration as well as a good cook. Have tissues ready to watch this tribute from her grandson. Also take his advice and sit down with an older person and just listen. I've learned so much from listening to much older people (or the elderly, as Steve Maxwell would say).
RIP Clara. And thanks.2

Maybe Ben's classes are keeping him busy?
I doubt he's taking classes this semester. Remember, he also took the semester off when Jessa had Spurge. More time for him to film with Flame, I guess.0
