Wife Swap -- West/Grimes


lizziesmom

Recommended Posts

There is a fundie lite mom who has swapped lives with a less controlling mom. The fundie lite son has a purity ring. Both kids are programmed and controlled but as Miles says "I am happy in the Lord. What else is there?"

Even though this was in 2006, I hadn't seen it and it is most interesting. The fundie lite mom and dad would drive me up in about five minutes but the other family isn't all that great either. One set of parents controls every waking moment and thought and the other is pretty laid back in the rules.

Lori (ultra Conservative religious mom) sings all the time and the kids are very scheduled and seem to be brainwashed. Their schedule is called ' the brain' and they write down everything in it. At the other house, the kids and mom are pitching in to help out dad who did all the household chores. Lori gave all 3 of the kids purity rings like her children wear.

Reagan (fundie lite kid) was given a drum set by her substitute mom and she loved to play the drums but once mom came home she 'decided' that she didn't have time for the drums in her busy schedule (mom and dad's choices, including clogging) so she gave them away.

At the end of the day I know which house I would prefer to live in. Why oh why do these parents have to be so controlling?

After the God Warrior epi, I was done. Nothing could top that for me. The level of batshit was magnificent.

That was my first taste of Fundy and my first real session of fundy snark. Ah! the memories.

Still so sad that her oldest daughter died. I guess I can't snark on her because of that.

I truly hate that her child was taken early & it's not something I would wish on my worst enemy. That still doesn't take away from what is forever on film. Not snarking on her loss, snarking on the show she ultimately approved of & signed off on: "dork sided" aka dark sided & the yelling/histrionics, the way she said the God warrior, and said she needed prayer while she was gone like it was her family's fault her visit was unpleasant, ordering the camera crew to "get the hell out of her house in Jesus' name", and taking the dirty/evil/pagan money.

Wait...West/Grimes are the last names? Please tell me that the ultra-religious mom's last name is Grimes, because then she would be Lori Grimes, and that would be awesome.

Yes to both questions.

Never saw this one but did see the "God Warrior". Must be noted that even her own family seemed to think she was batshit.

Her name is Marguerite Perrin. She used the money to get lap band surgery and she was doing shows for a little while, but after Ashley (?) died, she just dropped out of sight. She still had her granddaughter, Abigail, to raise. (I guess Abigail would be a teenager by now.)

If I remember correctly, the "spiritualist/psychic" family was not really very nice to her. She came home from an extremely stressful two weeks to discover that the psychic (or whatever) had done something that she felt would bring Satan into her home. She was not super intelligent or sophisticated, and her faith was child-like. She was really afraid and had been out of her element. I felt for her-she felt out of control, only to learn things she thought were in her control, like her home, were also out of control.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
