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.

OMG speculation bus time!!!!!
I explored Jill’s Instagram because I wanted to see the video (I’m pretty sure it is not Jill talking but one of the boys in a very high falsetto...I think you catch a glimpse of Jill across the creek. Also that “gowad” is creepy).
Anyway, she is only following 5 people: Joanna Gaines, a dress place, two super Christian ladies (I think), and Josiah Burbank, a 2019 graduate of bible college, home schooled.......farmer.
That “you found a shell!?” Sounds SO much like Jill is it eery - I do think think it’s her son. And yes I know - I’ve definitely called people and thought the teenage sons were mom for a split second, but it’s exactly the baby voice she uses, not just a “hello”.
So regarding your speculation. Are you saying she’s going to open her own overpriced shop and start a home decorating business? (I kid, I kid).

Personally, I prefer to go to a wedding without my children and I always try to leave them with my mother or neighbor. Usually weddings for kids are boring and they don’t like to sit still during the ceremony and reception. Also, I like to have some kid-free fun from time to time, have a drink or two and celebrate the couple without having to chase a toddler or nursing a baby. My Italian family thinks it’s strange that we leave them but to each their own 🍹
I don’t see the problem with children at a wedding. Yes, 1h church will be stressful but what is the problem with having them roam around at the reception? I mean, if you don’t want to bring them that’s fine but in my experience- if lots of family is there, there is always someone happily offering to entertain/watch them and tell them STOP/NO if needed for some time till next one takes over. Probably different if your at the wedding of friends. It also depends a lot on culture. From my experience in many countries people are much more relaxed about the noise and action that comes with children. They are everywhere and people are used to it/don’t notice them that much. Sadly, my country is different. The less you are exposed to them, the more annoyed you get by them (especially if they are not your own).
I am not surprised at all at the reaction of your Italien family. It’s always so nice being in Italy and seeing how relaxed they are. Taking your child out with you to lunch or dinner is just normal. I was in Rome shortly before I got pregnant and it was a nice reminder that you can still go out with friends for dinner and have a nice glass of wine. The child is just there with you.
But it’s also ok to leave your child at home or stay at home waiting till it’s your turn again. You do you. The only important thing is that you are happy with your choice.
Oh my Lord Adam Waller sounds like a bundle of nerves. Going through a twin pregnancy and having to support your husband through his increasing anxieties must have been awful for Valerie.
Also Adam's extensive research into all things conception and birth related appeared to have skipped the bit were identical twins have to be same sex (apart from 2 documented cases I think). Why were they thinking of names for a boy/girl combination?!
Holy moly- that must have been a serious tanning job. Carlin always had a more tanned colouring than her siblings (same goes for Michael) but wow. She must have fallen in the self tanner tin. In the picture with Erin it’s the most obvious. Especially her cleavage. I cannot imagine she got that through sunbathing as there are no visible lines but than self tanner often gives a more orange colouring. I am intrigued.
Apart from that - I have to say I truly like the look of her wedding (the location looks too much badly executed wannabe-Italy to me but whatever). It’s definitely more contemporary than I expected. It’s a good example for the generic wedding for this time. That is not an insult by the way. Pastels, naked cake, gown with sleeves, lace and a bit see through- it’s modern but not too trendy. It’s like the strapless gowns around 2010. Pretty but also pretty standard.
