Richard "Little Bear" Wheeler

This guy is just precious. An associate of Dougie (is a tool), he runs Living Water Fellowship, a sister church of the Boerne Christian Assembly.

He also produces bizzare revisionist history books and pushes a very specific type of "courtship" that is pretty much parent arranged marriage. Checkout this weird video of his "charge" to his son in law at his daughter's wedding:

I hate the "Little Bear" quotations part of his name. Drives me crazy.

I thought I'd read/heard somewhere that Doug Phillips had a falling out with Little Bear, and his products weren't as featured in the VF catalog? I think I remember reading about it on Jen Epstein's blog.

ETA: jensgems.wordpress.com/2007/04/08/doug-phillips-shuns-little-bear-wheeler/ Not sure if its true or not.

Supposedly, but Jen is not exactly an unbiased source. His stuff is still sold in the catalogue and the recordings are on Bluebehemoth.com

Awww so cute! His daughter is an arrow that needs to be sheltered! I think he fucked his analogy up a bit, though.

3Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

4As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

5Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

So the daughter is an arrow that has been "sheltered and loved" "guarded and watched" in his (meaning wheeler's) quiver... now he took her out of HIS quiver and sticks her in her new husband's quiver.

I thought your arrows were your children? How does your wife become your child?

Then he goes on a ramble on how the arrow that he "shot out" landed in china... "when you shoot the arrow, especially at this distance, who knows the impact that the arrow will have."

Wait, do we shelter our arrows or do we randomly fire shit in the air and see who it kills blesses?

This is some serious fucked up shit! SHES NOT AN ARROW SHE'S YOUR DAUGHTER.

The tool himself shows up at 7:45 to bless them. Dougie "lays hands" only on the menz - and rambles about how no one in china loves children.

HOLY. FUCK. 3:20

He has the boy get on his knees and "knights" him with a FUCKING SWORD! He goes on and on about how his daughter has been protected and is to be submissive. Her virginity is a "diamond" that he has kept in a black bag that is out on display for all to see.

What the fuck is with this guy and giving out weapons at weddings?

That second one is of Noelle Wheeler and Joshua Goforth. This is the couple that had the severely premature baby, refused government assistance to help pay for the hospital bills, and scared the hospital staff by Noelle being so submissive that every health care decision had to be referred to Joshua.

This is a wingnut site slanted towards the parents, but you get the idea:

It does appear that he's divorced himself of the tool. Not a single reference to VF on their site.

His FB page is also rather interesting.

Thanks for the link. I've heard about this couple before. Does anyone have any updates on them?

They have gone on to have three more kids, one of whom was born 10 months after William. William has the brain function of a 4 month old. He cannot walk, talk, or feed himself.

My god! That way too close spacing with one of the children being so severely disabled.

That always made me so mad! I mean really, if you're struggling with taking care of a baby in the NICU the last thing you need is to get pregnant with another. I do wonder if Josh and Noelle use some method of birth control now because their kids (after the first two) are spaced out and their youngest looks like she's 4 or 5. On the plus side, Noelle looks waayyy healthier and younger than most fundie brides look after a few years and she's been married for 10+ years.

Just been listenng to the 'Leaving the Village' podcast by Jessica Goforth and Kathleen Reynolds—both grew up in ATI and were at training centres. Can't find any mention of them on fj except for the marriage of Noelle Wheeler and Josh Goforth. Jessica has a brother called Josh. 

The podcast is at least a year old, and they both spoke to Katie Joy in 2021 I think. Anybody know anything about them?

      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.
