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:
Kendal & family attend Soverign Grace Ministries
Kendal was trained as a nurse
Kendal coined the term "riffles" after she misspelled "rifle" in a post about political-correctness.
Kendal was nicknamed "Kendull" on Free Jinger due to her boring and dull blog posts.
I totally agree about the girls being incredibly self centred- hardly surprising given their cloistered and stifling upbringing. It has made them so fearful and judgemental about anything or anyone that is different to them.
The girls are each so talented, it's just a shame mama and papa Boyer haven't been able to encourage them to get out of the house and interact with the world.0

Well Joe is never going to job or parent his children. He's going to spend his time screaming about persecution and be a lazy ass.
True. But he's also never going to hold down a job with his poor hygiene and obvious personality disorders, but even if he could it would likely be minimum wage and thus not really worth it. This would be the path of least resistance, if he could be bothered to try.1
Okay - I understand your point, @Hashtag Blessed but disagree. One, the kids are basically home alone most days anyway according to what Nicole posts. The older kids would all be in school so couldn't parent full time, and the younger would probably be in a subsidized day care learning about real life. Or he could work nights, or her days off. Another regular income would take a lot of load off her. OMG who has to go back to work two weeks after giving birth, which was their plan all along, much less a week after almost dying giving birth while in deep grief? He sucks. Period.
EDTA CPS would probably be thrilled with him having a job. Would see it as a positive.Edited by SweetLaurel
I don't mean to sound like the medical dork here, but I keep seeing Jill's C-sections referred to as "emergency", which the first one was not, and in all likelihood the second one wasn't either. Her section with Iz-ruul was "unplanned", but by no means was it considered "emergency". A true "emergency C-section" involves medical staff hauling ass down the hall with the mother on the bed to get to the OR, and general anesthesia. It's literally a life or death situation; every second truly counts.
An unplanned C-section is what happens when mom has been in labor and things aren't progressing as they should or mom is exhausted or whatever. Yes, it is a priority to get the baby delivered as soon as possible, but they usually don't use general anesthesia and it's far less frantic and chaotic.
And count me among the folks who wouldn't wish a hysterectomy on any woman, regardless of her personal views or baby-making expectations. Rather I would pray that God would impart wisdom on the woman (and her partner and support system) that pregnancy and childbirth can be fatal, women have sadly been dying since the beginning of time attempting to bear children, and that God DOES give us medical professionals to help us, not hurt us. We should listen to the wisdom He has given them.2
Jill is so histrionic and so dependent on external validation - everything is surface with her, and even the slightest criticism is absolutely brutal. Yet, she seems like she just loves the chaos and the drama that these little internet altercations bring - just like she loves living a chaotic and hectic lifestyle when she doesn't have to. I don't believe Jill is even capable of digesting constructive criticism. She has no insight into her self, and criticism will just make her cling to her unhealthy ways even more.
As others have noted, Kaylie's behavior in that video is very strange - and very pitiful. I would not be surprised if those tears were based in fear. I bet Jill is one of those parents who flies into rages when she doesn't get her way. I'm not saying she's physically abusive, but a screaming and yelling parent is just as terrifying IMO. Having a parent like that is like walking on eggshells all the time. It seems like every video I've seen where the kids are "testifying" for something, they're so rehearsed and awkward - like they're afraid to go off script. Hence all the "um's." And there's Jill, looming over them with her camera phone. The way Jill constantly stresses how "obedient" her kids are is just sick. The way she kept emphasizing that what her kids were saying in that video was their *own* thoughts leads me to believe they weren't.
I personally think Jill is beyond any sort of help since I highly doubt she'd ever take true responsibility for herself. When I first started reading about Jill, she seemed like a kooky attention-seeker, but the more I've seen, the more it's clear she's very unwell. Seeing how thin and sallow her children are - especially the youngest ones - is honestly scary. I just wonder if any of those kids has a healthy and stable person in their life who they can rely on.1
