    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 remember I once watched the video years ago with the sound off. I don’t remember each photo exactly.

      Saying “hev” instead of “heaven” sounds bizarre for the Maxwells. You’d think that kind of abbreviation would be a no no.

      I just read/watched the Sussanah post. I was struck, as I am every year, by how intrusive some of the photos seem. Nathan’s Maxhell training is kicking in and he’s smiling as soon as a camera is pointed at him, but Melanie, understandably, looks exhausted and distraught and like the last thing she wants is to pose for photos. I totally understand taking some pictures, I’m sure they are very precious, but some of the posing just seems distasteful.

      Also, why do they abbreviate heaven to “hev” in the song when “heaven” would scan just as well?

      It blows my mind they haven’t met Axton yet - Chelsy and Allison were so close. I guess Chelsy is truly Maxwell “extended family” now and had to be content with Teri drilling her on bible verses while she laboured (that bible bee prep finally came in handy!) and Sarah, Anna and Mary intruding for scheduled house cleaning while she recovered.

      It makes me sad - I’m not particularly close to my sister, would never claim we were “best friends”, but she left her 3 year old with her partner to spend a week with me after my first baby was born and my mother took time off work to travel to be with me for the births of all my babies. I guess when you’re looking at having a grandchild every few months for 20 years you can’t do that, but I would have thought the family would have done all they could to be there for Chelsy’s first.

      My guess is that if Allison felt she had a choice, she would have flown to KS right after the baby was born.

      Allison posted this. I can’t decide is he looks more like a Maxwell or a Bontrager.
