The Muncks

Recommended Posts

The Munck family, of muncksquiver.blogspot.com, lives in Tennesse. They are a Quiverfull family of 13, with 11 children (6 boys, 5 girls). Arthur, the father, runs a dog care center (greatdoggiedoos.blogspot.com), and Laura, the mother, is a stay-at-home wife and mom. The children are home schooled. Some of their recommend resources are Vision Forum and College Plus.

The children are as follows: Elizabeth (20), Amanda (19), Rebekah (17), Madison (15), Jonathan (13), James (11), Stephen (9), William (8), Wesley (5), Ruth Ella (3), and Mary Ann (16 months). The Munck family is also going to add another "blessing" to the family in August 2013. Laura had a miscarriage in July 2008, between Wesley and Ruth Ella. (The oldest three girls run a blog as well: themuncksisters.blogspot.com)

Jonathan, the 5th child, has Down's syndrome, or as the Munck's put it, he was "blessed with an extra chromosome." It was during the pregnancy with Jonathan that the family became Quiverfull. From the blog: "During Jonathan's pregnancy and after his birth is when God, started moving our hearts and "our" choice on how many children we should have. We saw the miracle in birth and life with each child, but with Jonathan it was another confirmation on how priceless and precious each child is...truly a gift only given by HIM! From the beginning of our marriage we chose to live for the Lord and have Him lead our marriage, yet we held back one thing we would choose the number of children. We knew then that meant giving it ALL to Him, even if that meant how many children He would bless us with."

Another thing to know about the family is that Arthur was diagnosed with colon cancer in December 2003. He is currently cancer free and has never had a reccurrence.

One of the things that brought the Muncks into FreeJinger fame was in summer 2012 when Elizabeth, the oldest, became engaged to Joseph Maxwell. The wedding was eventually called off for unknown reasons, but members of FreeJinger were happy that Elizabeth didn't have to go live in "Maxhell."

FreeJinger threads about the engagement and break-off: freejinger.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11220; freejinger.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13171; freejinger.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12106

A theory about why the engagement was broken off was the Elizabeth realized she would not have been happy in the boring and cultish Maxwell lifestyle. The Munck family is one of the happier fundie families, and they go all out celebrating birthdays and other holidays, with theme trees and theme parties. They love decorating and keep a Christmas tree permanently in their dining room (they decorate it on birthdays and holidays). Anyway, we are all happy that Elizabeth escaped the Maxwells.

All in all, while the Muncks may seem like the family you wish you were a part of with all their parties and fun, they are still Quiverfull and part of a patriarchy movement that expects women to stay at home and raise the babies. It just goes to show that you can't judge a book by it's cover.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
