FundieFarmer posted a topic in Lori & Ken Alexander (Always Learning)Ah, Lori, so original, so wise, so sounding exactly like Stormie Omartian with her new book entitled "The Power of a Transformed Woman". Stormie Omartian, who is actually not the devil in disguise, releases books on praying and supporting family (or something like that). Lori's book talks about how horrible her marriage was with Ken for like, forever, before Lori realized she was the problem and decided to shape up because she couldn't ship out. Or so says the PR version of her website. But let's be real. Lori's version of shaping up turned her into some hellish version of Satan's mistress (yes, we mean you, Ken) and here we are today. Continuing on from here: You can read about her book here:
The book has 205 pages, followed by a couple pages that include a poem by Ken and a small "About the Author" section. It contains nineteen chapters, the titles of which I will list at the end of this first entry. The dedication reads: "To those women who dreamed of having a close and intimate marriage only to find out that their marriage was more like a nightmare." That's it. No promise of encouragement within the pages of the book, no note of thanks that they are trusting her to guide them. Of course, no mention of her husband whatsoever. Today I read the introduction entitled "A Note to the Reader," and the first chapter. In the introduction, Lori begins with several questions such as "Are you in a difficult marriage...?" "Does it seem like you're moving further away from your husband rather than toward him?" She tells us that these types of questions were important to her because of the difficulties she was having in her marriage as her children were leaving home. She briefly tells the story of taking a walk with Ken and hearing him say he felt there would be nothing holding them together when the children left. She tells us that all the conflict between Ken and her started on their honeymoon (although later she mentions that they argued a lot while they dated.) She became angry with Ken on their honeymoon because he ate Ritz crackers with Fake cheese spread and she "was appalled that he would eat something so junky since I was raised to be a health nut." With that sentence she is sure to let her readers know that anybody who does anything differently than she does is always wrong. I mean, if she won't eat crackers and cheese, then why would anybody else want to eat crackers and cheese? She tells us that she gave him the silent treatment for eating unhealthy foods. Quote: "I thought that if he really cared about my happiness, he wouldn't eat ice cream and deli meats." She also thought he watched too much television, was "consumed with sports" and was grumpy with her. She does admit to acting more like his mother than his wife. "Thank goodness we had children," she writes as she begins a paragraph in which she tells us that she was a great mother (reader's jaw drops here) but a neglectful wife. She tells us they even argued while they would go out for an evening without the children. She claims she was heartbroken from Ken's words about their marriage and that she was struck with grief at having no idea how to fix her marriage. This is where we are first introduced to Debi Pearl's book. Here she says the book "woke me up to what I was missing in my marriage." There is absolutely no mention of how Debi spanked her with her words (reader was sad to realize there was no mention of spanking.) Debi's book made her dreams come true. It transformed her marriage. It made her realize she must give up control. Lori then reminds us that Titus 2 holds all the answers. I will leave it at that for now and be back later to review Chapter One, "My Life Growing Up." The Chapters: 1. My Life Growing Up 2. Why I Mentor Women 3. Let it Go! (reader instantly begins singing 'Frozen' songs) 4. Allow Him to Lead 5. What Submission Looks Like 6. Easy Conflict Resolution (wait!! Conflict resolution is a sinful modern psychological tool - reader's brain bends) 7. This Thing Called Sex (reader scoops out own eyeballs with rusty spoon) 8. Winning Him Without a Word 9. Teaching and Training Children in the Way They Should Go 10. Birth Control and Having Children 11. The Dating Scene and Sexual Purity 12. Keepers at Home 13. How Are You Dressing? (reader instantly thinks of salad jokes) 14. Talking About Your Financial Health 15. The Disciplined Mind: Trusting God and Doing Good 16. Clutter No More 17. Serving Healthy Foods Means Healthy Families 18. A Way to a Man's Heart 19. The Power to Become a Transformed Wife. Side note: In having read just a small portion of the book, I was struck with how often she mentions food and how she relates it to love, morality and control. More later, dear FJ readers.

More whatthefuckery from Ken:
Molestation is no big deal, and causes no emotional issues, according to Ken. I think I'll post the rest, as well. Here it is. By "garbage," he means people getting upset or feeling injured when they are molested. They are just processing it wrong.
Koala posted a topic in Lori & Ken Alexander (Always Learning)I am crying now. If this was a post, it would be: The One Where Ken Offers to Coach The Donald. The fist part of the post is a breakdown of all of the things Ken doesn't like about Trump. I'll put the highlights in bold: Now wait for it: Horrible, horrible man- but if it's between a horrible man and a woman, Ken will take the horrible man any day. The solution: Of course he's reading! I am sure The Godly Mentor is at the top of his list. Just think how excited he'll be when he sees that yet another post has been dedicated to NOT complaining (it's satanic you know) about him! This is definitely the funnies thing Ken has ever "helped written" on Lori's blog.
This is the main news on the Daily Mail this morning "I really don't want sex any more and nor, if they're being honest, do most women with young children says this mother of four. So what does her other half make of it?" "Some men, if rebuffed by their girlfriend or wife, might go looking elsewhere for sexual fulfilment" http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3450378/I-really-don-t-want-sex-nor-honest-women-young-children-says-mother-four-does-half-make-it.html
