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 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’m for vaccinations in general but I do think the CDC has a pretty ridiculous overboard schedule. The TDaP is a great example. For the most part if your childhood boosters were done you likely need only one follow up for life. Maybe.
This is evidenced by different schedules in different countries. Or titer tests which show immunity decades after childhood boosters. I got tired of being pushed for the shot and had my titers tested. Tetanus immunity is still solid from a 20 years ago booster and my pertussis immunity from childhood shots.
I think most antivax propaganda is junk science but the financial kickbacks to doctors per shot and the big pharma connections to cdc are real.
My kids are all vaccinated but as a parent I really loathe the fear mongering doctors often employ or the disdain for anyone who might question standard practice.

No, in her post Kennedy clarifies that it's pronounced Nay-da.
Thanks! Then I'm back to my "interesting choice" opinion. I wonder if some bogus website or name book made up some wonderful yet etymologically incorrect meaning for the name that led to them using it? Either way, I like the name. They could have done much worse.

It looks like Cassia’s husband Robbie is not doing well and they think he will pass away soon. I feel bad for all the children in that family who have lost a parent.
He's on hospice It looks like people have donated fairly generously to them and while I do not like Rusty's ministry/messages, I'm glad people have donated to Cassia, Robby, and their kiddos so they can spend quality time together at the end.
If he’s into John MacArthur his beliefs aren’t that different from IBLP. I bet they see breaking into influencing as an evangelistic opportunity and any opposition as persecution.
We accept no monetary donations. Please direct all donations towards legitimate organizations that help people. (Give generously.)
