Don't know if this blog has been discussed but I LOVE it

http://ayoungmomsmusingDOTblogspot.com/

About her:

I am a young Protestant Minister's wife and mom of 4 children aged 4 and under. Ms. Action (4) Ms. Drama (3) and Ms. Pooky (1) and Baby Boy. After growing up Protestant Fundamentalist my whole life and attending myriads of different churches as well as "home churching", I find myself feeling pretty agnostic some days

her posts of courting are great!

Visit

for some great articles including motherhood after growing up Quiverfull

So let's hope one day the Duggar girls overcome the fundy parenting and become as awesome as her!

Would be awesome if you guys visited her site and encouraged her-she gets heaps of messages from people saying 'Oh come back to God and fundy life'

I absolutely adore her, though since I'm super shy and never comment, she doesn't know. The fact that she's brave enough, as a minister's wife, to explore different Christian beliefs... the way that she not only recognized that the way of parenting she was taught was wrong, but STOPPED and figured out something better--and then had the bravery to blog about the journey! I hope I end up half as good a mom as she is :)

I was very charmed by her story. Her courship story is realy worth a read. Two people in love and their parents discourage them from even hugging! Their wedding is supposed to be a model for purity but they sneak out to kiss each other in private so that their first kiss at their wedding isn't some sort of object lesson.

that is downright awesome to read about :) glad to see that someone is taking their life in hand on their own terms. :)

I forget how I found her blog a few months ago, but I adore reading her writings, too. I'm really interested in her

"gentle parenting" posts, as hubby & I start to contemplate filling our quiver with more than just cats.

I love her!! She is a real inspiration to me, what with all the non-spanking posts and stuff. lol Spanking was something I always thought was a fact of life. Well, I think I'm gonna try to omit that fact of life from my childrens' lives!!

I really like her blog too. Somebody put up links about her anti-spanking stuff awhile back and I've continued reading her.

I was fascinated by her courtship series. She linked to Lewis on the last courtship post, did anyone else catch that?

Have any of y'all read her blog in the last couple of years? Sorry if this was posted somewhere else!

Her partner came out as a trans woman, she came out as a lesbian, they left the ministry, moved, etc. She wrote a whole 9-part series called "Unwrapping the Onion" on it. Gives me hope for other fundies!

(Note: It reads weird because she (the author) uses "he" pronouns to refer to her wife up until part 8, but she (the wife) was involved with the writing of the story, so I'm assuming they both chose to do that because it correlated with which pronouns were being used in real life.)

      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.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      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!
