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 stuck in a hotel tonight thanks to the winter storm and I thought about the Dillards when I got a drink from the vending machine. It didn't have my preferred Dr. Pepper so I chose a Fanta.
I did forget to take a selfie with it though. #lovemesomeamericanculture
I didn't even realize that shields were something people could be ardently against. The hard-core lactivists are so obnoxious and there are so many cases where the shame they attach to not breastfeeding right is really hurting women and babies. And even though Hannah has experienced some of this for herself I don't get the impression that she has learned to be supportive of women who aren't able to (or simply don't want to, for that matter) breastfeed at all.

Hello, first post!
I pretty recently ended up on FJ through lurking on the Duggar Snark subreddit. I remembered watching some of the Duggar specials and X Kids and Counting when I was younger with my family (my mother, sister, and I mostly made fun of them, while my dad groused about their anti-Catholic bigotry in the background). Falling down this rabbit hole makes me both amused and disturbed, especially because I am the same age as Joy-Anna, and I honestly can't imagine being married with a child at 20/21.
I'm currently attending college and trying not to miss my cat too much. My username refers to Anne Boleyn, my all-time favorite historical figure. My icon is from America's Next Top Model, a guilty pleasure that's a little less devastating to watch than the Duggars. I was raised Catholic, but I'm agnostic now. I live in the northeastern part of the United States. So far I've mostly been lurk-reading the Duggar and Rodrigues threads, with a couple dips into the Bates. The thing I've taken away the most is that it's horrible to be a woman/girl in these circumstances, and my heart breaks a little bit for every woman/girl trapped in fundamentalism, though their horrible beliefs certainly lessen my sympathies.
Welcome to FJ Once you look around you'll find there is a whole lot more crazy than just the Duggars. They were the gateway fundies for a lot of us.
I have a bunch of mutual acquaintances with Cori. How funny. Let's play 7 degrees of duggars!So I was just browing Instagram, and I came across the profile of Abbie's cousin Cori Spruiell. Why do I mention this? Because Cori just got married to a woman a few weeks before Abbie and David tied the knot. I'm kind of shocked that Abbie seems to have a pretty good relationship with her openly and very unapologetically gay cousin. Good for her. I do hope Cori (and her wife if she was there) was treated well at the wedding!
Here's the picture that brought me to Cori's profile:
