  • Hi Friends,

    As you know FJ is completely free for both members and guests.  We are able to provide FJ for free due to ad revenue.  I'm not going to start forcing people to see ads to look at the site like some places do, but I am going to ask that those of you that enjoy FJ and use it routinely to turn off your ad blockers while you visit us.   

    If you visit us every day and turn your ad blocker off several times a week while you are here that would be a help.

    Keeping ads to a minimum and not requiring members and guests to turn off their ad blockers means we make enough to cover monthly expenses with a small buffer for those times of year we have extra expenses like taxes.

    If we come to the point where we are no longer able to sustain FJ at the level we are currently we will be forced to cut expenses and thus site performance or force people to turn off ad blockers while visiting us.   I would really rather not do either of those things, so if you can please remember to turn off your ad blocker a few times a week, we would all appreciate it.

    Thank you,
    Curious

      Free Jinger is not a Duggar fan site.
      We exist to discuss the damage caused by fundamentalists.

      Parents of 19 children, live in Tonitown Arkansas, and have been married since July 21, 1984. Jim Bob was born July 18, 1965 (54) and Michelle was born September 13, 1966 (52.) They met in the early 1980s when JimBob accompanied a fellow Church goer to a followup meeting with Michelle, who had recently experienced a religious conversion. At the time, Jim Bob was attending Shiloh Christian School (associated with First Baptist Church, which was later renamed Cross Church - the same Church Jill was married.) For their first date, Jim Bob took Michelle to the Shiloh Junior-Senior banquet.

    4. Lori & Ken Alexander (Always Learning/The Transformed Wife)

      UPDATE 2019: Lori Alexander wrote a book (basically turned her blog into a book. There was little, if any, new content) called "The Transformed Wife" and now blogs at  https://thetransformedwife.com/

      She has also discovered social media and delivers her dangerous and unbiblical advice on:

      Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thetransformedwife/

      Twitter: https://twitter.com/laalex2?lang=en

      Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thetransformedwife/?hl=en

      Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsPbQz30YqPNOE4pKedswUA

       

      Lori blogs at lorialexander.blogspot.com which she considers her "ministry" to younger married women. She preaches mostly submission with a side order of child "training" (she is an unapologetic Michael & Debi Pearl follower). Her blog has become an incessant tirade about men needing lots of sex and women giving it no matter how they feel and how women can change their husbands by submitting and being "godly".

      Ken Alexander, her orthodontic consultant husband, visited FJ in early 2014 to set us all straight....hilarity ensued.

    5. John and Esther (Keller) Shrader

      John Shrader (a/k/a The World's Worst Missionary) moved his wife, Esther, and their evergrowing brood to Zambia to convert Christians to the "right" brand of Christianity.

      Before moving to Zambia, the Shraders lived in a pop-up camper while on deputation.  They relied on the kindness of various churches, as well.  John grifted money for a plane (sight unseen already located in Zambia) and flying lessons.

      Since moving to Zambia he has grifted an amazing amount of money and items for his "ministry."  He has converted approximately 2 people in the 5 or so years he's been there.

      The Shrader's quality of life is far above what they had in the US.  They have all the necessities: an actual house, a fridge with an icemaker, and a supply of sunflower seeds and beef jerky.

      Join us as we chronicle John's misadventures in deepest darkest sub-Saharan Africa.
