  1. Hello! I have been wanting to do this for a few months now, and I finally have the time. As much as I wanted to burn it, I decided to keep my old copy of the notorious So Much More. Why? Because I as much as I hate it now, reading (and re-reading) it was a pivotal event in my life. And I forgot how much I had marked in it. So now, it’s time for me to share and for us to snark together! But first, some background on me and why I was once a Stay at Home Daughter. I grew up with a psychologically and financially abusive father. I hope that most readers here understand that the effects
  2. I have been a part of two churches in my life: One was a toxic church which drove to seek fundamentalism in my teens as my parents insisted in being of part of it. The other was a perfectly decent and kind church that was pleasant for me, but this experience drove me away from church due to my family’s drama. At the former, my parent’s excuse was that they felt like they were “missionaries” to that church. I am starting to realize more and more that my parents’ determination to be the “true Christians” in their churches is a way for them to bond in an otherwise dysfunctional relati

    Rejecting the SAHD movement

    Here's a piece by a former SAHD on how she came to reject that lifestyle and patriarchy per se. Sounds like this one in particular took it upon herself to begin with and didn't come from a family that enforced it. http://www.ashleyeaster.com/blog/why-im-no-longer-a-stay-at-home-daughter The above is a guest entry on a blog by another former SAHD who now considers patriarchy to be abuse and identifies as a Christian feminist. Here are some writings of another ex-SAHD, one who was quite prominent: https://jasminelholmes.com/regrets-of-staying-home/ https://j

    Andrea Reins is Engaged!

    The gent is a father of NINE children! Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aOD9GAu6U0&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR2P_73U6_NZVEop-eZ3VuAmI_DCczkzzoHTFFjdxQAKos_4X7WF2v7o6ys
  5. Not sure where to post this so starting here. I am writing fiction about home-schooled SAHD with few social skills and not a whole lot to do. They are fundie "royalty" but have few social skills, poor education, little exposure to the outside world, are one another's "best friends," etc. Father is a patriarch but sort of a dolt and ineffectual abut adored and unquestioningly obeyed the manipulative mother, who is a narcissist and hypochondriac, runs the show. She keeps her daughters infantalized and they adore her and want to please her. Oldest is becoming "old maid" age in their circles. The

    SAHD are like indoor cats

    I have two indoor cats. Griffin is perfectly content to remain so and flees in fear from any open external door. Sham-Wow*, on the other hand, casually stalks the back door when we let the dogs in and out awaiting an opportunity to pop out into the real world and have an adventure. After thwarting him again today I did what I often do and picked him up for a cuddle and I explained to him how I keep him inside because I love him so much I couldn't bear if anything happened to him. That inside our home he is always safe...that he has yummy noms, cozy places to sleep, wonderful toys w

    Tales From the Fainting Couch

    I don't know if it's just me, but lately it seems like my church circles and my social media have been flooded with young (mostly) women who all have serious but vaguely described ailments. "Lyme syndrome" seems to be a popular one as well as various gastro complaints that are mostly self-diagnosed. Has anyone else noticed this? It's almost like the invalids of the Victorian age. This time around no one is falling into a swoon, but everyone is in need of oils or a special diet, and normal levels of activity are just out of the question. It just makes me sad. I can't help wondering if some of
  8. From what I've read so far, Adrienne likes to talk about the similarities between herself and movie characters (so far, I've read the posts on Sense and Sensibility, Old Fashioned, The Holiday with Kate Winslet and another one). But her blog archives go back to 2006, so maybe there's some more interesting stuff there https://adrienneand.blogspot.de/
  9. I sometimes check in on Samantha, the blogger who writes Virtuous Daughters. A quick summary: She is older than 30, no marriage and no children. She is probably like this because her parents have a 170-point questionnaire to give to all potential suitors. She is a Fake Jew. She celebrates Jewish holidays using the Gregorian calendar (Passover in January, Sukkot in July, etc.) http://www.virtuousdaughters.com/ She is now in Israel, volunteering at an assisted living facility run by Messianics. http://onegirlsjourney.virtuousdaughters.com/ On the
  10. This is just a post from a magazine for stay at home daughters. http://shiningstarsmagazine.com/to-think-or-not-to-think-handling-romantic-attraction/#more-10506 Basically, you should think about boys as little as possible. I think she's even saying that if you have a crush you should tell your father and get his permission. Don't talk to your friends about your crush. Be careful about prayer If your crush is someone that you have to see Oh, fundies. With rules like these it's no wonder so many fundie families are having a hard time getting their kids marri

    Kelly Reins, SAHD *and* TV critic!

    And we thought those aging SAHDs just sat around the house all day, sipping tea and knitting. Not so! From Kelly's public FB page (SOTDRT spelling errors left intact): Comment from Lori Alexander: Response from Kelly: And, finally: Mercy, mercy, mercy! Self-righteous complaining! Indiscreet conversation! Unnecessary crassness! Underwear shorts!!! What, I ask you, is this world coming to? I'm shocked - SHOCKED - that a 39 year-old stay-at-home-daughter would be allowed to watch such filth.
  12. I've personally noticed fewer and fewer women taking the traditional SAHD path and I'd wondered if the movement was fading. I guess there's still an audience for it, though. I noticed this conference posted on one of my cousin's FB pages: kbrconference.com/overview/ It looks like a SAHD encouragement event similar to those VF used to host. Of the speakers, I only recognize Wissman and a few others.
  13. Steve and Terri have posted their Jan '14 Mom's/Dad's Corner on the topic of stay at home adult daughters. No surprises in this post where they respond, or should I say Steve responds, to a question on the subject posed by a reader. Steve (and Terri's?) responses state the following: 1) Their adult daughters stay at home and refrain from working outside the home by choice. They do not address the issue of how they might respond should one of their daughters wish to pursue employment or education outside the home. Their daughters desire the protection and safety of home
  14. Just saw this article on Raising Homemakers. Looks like at least some folks finally made the connection that keeping SAHDs totally isolated leads to unmarried daughters. Apparently folks need to be more social(granted they're talking church socials and christian conferences, but that's still more than some of these families do)! Wonder if families like the Maxwells or the Duggars will ever let the daughters meet guys. raisinghomemakers.com/2013/re-thinking-waiting-on-the-lord-for-husbands-for-our-daughters/
  15. I get that lazy parents want their older daughters to take care of their younger children. But if you believe that you should have a quiver full of arrows to engage in culture war with the rest of the population, wouldn't you want not only as many children as possible, but as many grandchildren as possible too? Seems that you wouldn't want your daughters spending their most fertile years unmarried.
  16. Pinterest is a SAHDs dream!!! And our favorite fundie girls are going nuts on there. It's actually pretty eye-opening as to what's going on in the mind of a fundie girl. Jasmine Baucham's page makes me sad. She has a whole huge life in her glorious mind and she's wasting it away in her parents house. The girl has over 3200 pins!!!!! And the board of pins w/ the type of clothes she likes for a guy (although it basically morphs into the type of guy she likes whether she realizes it or not) is REALLY interesting. I so wish I could scoop her up and drop her in the middle of NYC. Someth
