  1. Karissa Collins has a public Facebook which she treats as a daily preachy blog. She has a beautiful family and 7 kids (and counting). She is proudly quiverfull and anti-feminist. She also takes good photos everyday but photoshops them a lot. Most of her daily Facebook public posts are about being quiverfull, feminism, and spanking. She recently had her 7th baby, a premie named Ansjer “Answer”. All kids have names beginning with A. She also hands a free copy of Be Fruitful and Multiply book to anyone who asks. Here is is a recent snippet: ”Meant to be... "Whatever is mean
  2. I have been following this fundy for about 3 years now. She is young, (26) with 3 kids and states she is quiverfull, IFB, KJV only, flat earther, faith healing, recently mentioning becoming a Breathetarian because Jesus. She deleted a bunch of crazy posts exposing all the Satans and Demons and illuminatis , which is a bummer. You can find all this and more on FB: Danielle Krystina Matias and a page Fourth watchmen of the end times bible prophecy. IG: Godspresense ( danni Matias) , Pandy4god. There are probably more, she's had lots. She is a classic deleter/blocker so becarefu
  3. I just watched a show about the Andrea Yates case. I was a kid when it happened so I didn't know too much about it. Holy goodness. It reminds me of different fundies we snark on. The living in a bus, following a preacher who says most people are going to hell, the no birth control despite major mental health issues, etc. It was very upsetting and tragic. Wow. I had no idea. It makes things like Teri Maxwell's depression in her quiverfull, religious, homeschooling lifestyle sound even more dangerous than I thought. A Mother's Madness:
  4. I've been watching the series following Miriam Margolous. [Please correct my spelling of her name] In the final episode she traveled through Texas and stayed with a family called Flanders. Fudie alarm bells all over. 12 kids. Wll of photos with the quiver quote above. A Tedd Tripo book amoungst their religious reading. They were not skirts only but homeschooled. Miriam liked the family but made the mum cry when she talked about not agreeing with religion. Edited to add I have found a blog http://lovinglifeathome.com
  5. I stumbled across her blog some time ago. At first she looked like a normal, evangelical mum with lots of kids. After some time, I realized that she subscribes to the quiverfull ideology. She is dressed pretty modern, homeschools and seems pretty normal. There isn't a lot of fundiegelical talk as well. But still, she is quiverfull, talks about child training, homeschools... On the other hand, her blog is posh, loads of DIY, fashion, travel. So a modern quiverfull mom? I did not find a thread on her, so I decided I should create my own. http://misformama.net/ http://misformama.n
  6. This thread is about Elizabeth Johnston's blog "The Activist Mommy." She was kicked off of Facebook in February over things she posted about the LBGT community. She made a stink and was reinstated. Her being banned for a short time drew attention from conservatives who flock to stories of Christian persecution. So her blog is more popular than ever. She often makes her video blogs while sitting in her bus with random music in the background. Some background info: She is from the Johnston family that has been talked about a little on FJ. She has 10 children. Her husband is Patrick Johnsto
  7. I stumbled upon this family on social media. They have 9 (soon 10) children, they blog and (of course!!!), they sing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWzycOUrIYo. Their blog is full of crazy: http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com A few favourites: http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/blog/ten-most-common-gun-control-soundbites-refuted (Let's shoot each other!) http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/article/ten-commandments-training-children (Let's hit our kids!) http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/blog/check-out-our-new-t-shirt-designs (Let's hang people who are
  8. If any of you ever get the chance, search on you tube and type in "Quiverfull". The video is the fist thumbnail that comes up and the video is posted by paulmartson. Anyway, it shows a fundie family in Virginia being interviewed by Jennifer London (of World Report). The family has seven kids and are admittedly part of the quiverfull movement. The parents (Brad and Allison Shed) raise their kids much like the Duggars. The oldest daughter Olivia, basically mothers her younger sisters (there is only one boy in the family). She talks very bubbly like the Duggar's Jill and is (from her words) pefec
  9. I Was Trained for the Culture Wars in Home School, Awaiting Someone Like Mike Pence as a Messiah I thought this was a really interesting break down of political views in fundamentalist culture. It definitely opened my eyes to some of their skewed reasoning.
  10. Does anyone know anything about this family? They run a farm in VA & they are quiverfull. Do they have an online presence?
  11. There's this documentary series on Barcroft TV (YouTube) where this guy goes around the world looking to meet people of "human extreme". In this episode, he simply set out to find people who've had lots and lots of children (10+), but quickly found himself in over his head when he uncovered their motivations. Most of them are the epitome of quiverfull with a capital "Q", and what's striking is that it proves to be an international phenomenon. For fair warning, it gets kinda sad/creepy. Watch the above or go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6Fm2WGL4bo
  12. I had a search, but couldn't find anyone discussing Jami Balmet of Young Wife's Guide (.com for those who are interested). Married at 19, although she and her husband dated since she was 17 and he was 19. She has a website " to help young women find their God-given calling as homemakers!" More importantly though, she has twins who are three (Malachi and Micah), ANOTHER set of twins who are 11 months-ish (Ryder and Remington) and has just announced she is pregnant again. Holy fertility! The Duggars can only dream! Among her cringeworthy tips are suggesting you ask your dad abou
  13. Help me if I'm doing this wrong. It's my first time starting a thread. I noticed this morning that this 'Carry the Quiver' commented on one of my infertility pictures. So I eventually found his personal account. Anyone heard of this Jeff Roeters? Is he a fundie or friend of a fundie?
  14. not sure how many of you have followed Kimberly and Mark from Raising Olives but they are/were the typical Reformed quiverfull parents of 11 and did the usual homeschooling/SAHD and had several posts about how college wasn't happening for their children, wasn't necessary, etc. Well, they have changed their minds because two of her children are going to Tennessee and King College which may be in PA and she says she has a third somewhere too. She doesnt really update her blog but this made me so happy. They seem to have been loosening the reins since their children did cross country/ wore shor

    Fundie Facebook group

    I am part of a Quiverfull Facebook group. I joined it just to observe and learn. I am very shocked by the ideals. Nancy of Above Rubies is worshipped. They constantly debate and put down all forms of contraception, even natural family planning, and working mothers. I have never seen anything like it before. If a woman prevents using NFP she is a heathen. Most of the women are pregnant with their 7th or 9th child. Although they believe in submission, many complain that their husband "is not on board with trusting God in fertility" and ask for prayers that their husbands change. Can pregnancy be

    Quiverfull and Women's Health

    I know we have had discussions before about how many women have had health issues related to having too many children too close together. However, I was visiting family this weekend and an encounter I had at my aunt's house with a bunch of folks from my old fundie church brought up something I hadn't considered before. This was a "women's night out" dinner, and most of the people there were either friends of my mom and aunts, or women I'd grown up with. There were a few that had joined the church after I left as well. There was one young women among the newer group who just looked sickly. Her
  17. The main purpose of Quiverfull is out breed Muslims. What if they started slowing things down? http://kuow.org/post/god-commanded-fami ... ged-malawi
  18. I don't know it this is relevant, but I was wondering about all the religions that are similar to the Duggars' but aren't quite the same. I know for one that the schwieters, they're an apostolic bunch, are very similar. I went with one for a bit, a few months, and they all wore the very modest clothes and the girls had to have very long hair. And in the end, the boy I went with, ended up marrying at 18 and having a baby not soon after with the girl he left for. The only difference really, is that they allowed dancing and I went swing dancing quite a few times.

    Quiverful research

    I just happen to be doing a research project on the Quiverful movement and I was wondering if the nice people of Free Jinger could help me. Some questions I have: I was wondering what families I should read up on? What websites that would be helpful? Also what texts should I be reading? The average size family? What region of the country that these Quiverful would be found in? All I know is about the Druggars and even then it just the recent episodes from when Derrick started to appear.

    Family Size, Let God decide

    Okay so it looks like the Duggars and the Bates have both stalled at 19, what is the largest fundie family. And yes I mean delivered by one mom. Not one of these I delivered 3 kids and then adopted 23, not that I don't think adoption is not real (just don't want to start that debate).
  21. Sorry to be morbid, but I'm genuinely curious about this - say Michelle had died due to the complications she had with Josie. Do you think Jim Bob would've gone, "Gee, maybe if it hadn't been Michelle's job to be sexually available to me and my needs at all times, she'd still be here and my children would still have a mother"? What do you think would happen to the Quiverfull movement (and Quiverfull-ish families) if mothers were dying?
  22. Jessa said (just before getting married) on the show: “I guess I’m ready for it: I mean, I don’t think I’d be getting married if I wasn’t ready to start a family.†This is the problem with the whole attitude of the Duggars about marriage, no birth control and babies. They aren't allowed to grow up and be independant and leave home to live on their own and have a career (the girls at least). And if they meet someone and want to marry, they have to be ready for children because no birth control is acceptable. Well, what about being ready for marriage but not ye
  23. So, quiverfull families are notorious for making the entire family wear matching clothes, and for giving their kids names all starting with the same letter. (And it's not just the duggars, I did a bit of googling to confirm my "seen this around" feelings, and it does seem to be very much athing) And it really does seem like a lot of quiverfull families have enmeshment issues. So I was wondering, is the naming and dressing thing a result of the enmeshment? A thing encouraged by people like gothard/doug philips to promote enmeshment (even if that's not the word they'd use
  24. I just overheard someone say that three kids was "far too many children for a person to have", which was weird to me since I am one of three. It got me thinking, I think most of us here agree that 19 kids are waaaaaay too many. But when does the line go from "a big family" to way too many?

    Dugger prayer

    God sitting in his favorite chair hears the prayer phone ringing with a very familiar ring. Oh god not the Duggers again he picks it up and hears the usual begging for another baby, jesus he thinks let's try it again he whispers use a condom. Things that pop into my head when I can't sleep.
