Daniel Staddon and Kathryn Neely: the most convoluted courtship story ever

This whole thing sounds like it was written by Raquel.  The only reason I know it isn't is because the main characters have normal names and no one has mentioned anything about hoodies.

Daniel is trying really hard to emulate Robert. I think he wants to marry Kathdalyn. 

Excerpt from Robert's story: (http://robertloveskendalyn.com/)

 I really wanted a clear word from the Lord! So I asked Him for it. Then I looked down at my Bible reading for the day. It just so happened to be “the wedding Psalm”! Psalm 45:13 jumped off the page to me: “The king’s daughter is all glorious within.."

Excerpt from Daniel's story:

I had been thinking a lot about Kathryn and seeing her and her family that weekend, so I was astonished when we turned to Psalm 45, the “Royal Wedding Psalm,” and read the first verse, “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king… The king’s daughter is all glorious within…"

 

It is noteworthy to me that both Robert's and Daniel's websites are He-loves-her and nothing about vice versa. 

(And how convenient it is to ask the LORD for a sign if you should get married or not, on a day that you know your Bible reading will be the wedding psalm.)

Ever thought of going back to school Palimpsest? This would be a great PhD thesis: "A Multi-Level Classification of Doctrinal Beliefs in American Fundamentalist Christian Communities", Harvard University Press, 2020

Fuck, no!  Do you all not know how old I am?  Been there, done that.

It would an astounding PhD thesis.  Why are you young 'uns not stepping up to the plate?

I'll volunteer to be on your committee ...

By the way, this girl needs to work on a healthy sense of self-worth. Marriages where your sense of self-worth is derived from being chosen by the 'godly guy' are doomed for trouble. Because once you find out he can be quite the asshole, suddely you are not so speshul either for having been 'chosen'. Depression and resentment all around.

And she takes this guy WAY too seriously. What works in my marriage? Take it lightly, laugh a lot, about each other and about yourself, forgive, and in hard times cling to God and each other until the storm blows over.

The US has a big old wide-open Free Market o'Christianity.  It isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I don't see as something totally negative. It's just hard to keep track - that's all.

CAN'T. STOP. LAUGHING.

Someone should post that under their "lovestory". Maybe I'll find time for it later. Now it's back to studying..

I was laughing out loud while reading this endless claptrap and Mr. InCharge asked what I was reading. My reply of 'Fundie porn' was met with eye-rolling and sighs. I <3 FJ!

From Daniel's story: "On one of the mornings of that same conference, I could not find my Bible..."

What fundie loses their Bible???? Seems like that cements the path straight to hell. Or the prayer closet for several hours.

Yeah, IME fundies have several Bibles--the living room Bible, the bedroom Bible, the kitchen Bible, the keep-in-the-car-to-take-to-church Bible...

Kathryn isn't in the Bible and even worse Kathryn's basically Katherine which is an evil fish eater Catholic saint's name.  Need a good proper Bible name like Sarah to cancel it out.  Better to be McKendaJingaling than an evil Pope name.

Daniel jokes about that when he finds the letter addressed to her in a bible. It's meant to be funny but comes across as pretty defensive: 

“Dear Sara-Kathryn…” I couldn’t believe it! Who says the name Kathryn isn’t in the Bible? :my_shy:"

Seems like it hits a sore spot in his bible-bee dummy heart. He's probably glad she wants to change names, in fact she doesn't mention it once but he goes on and on about it.

Totally seems like an excuse to snoop through their library.

The horror of marrying someone named Kathryn! She may as well be named Jezabel!

I'm sure the Bible's are the only thing some Fundie children don't have to share.  Considering I'm sure many share their rooms & possibility clothes.

      I can't help it, but I think it would hurt my feelings if my child changed their first name.

I just read Kendalyn's 'story' and there are similarities with Kathryn's. She wasn't gung ho at first either. I'm thinking she chose a boy but it didn't work out for whatever reason so she resolved herself to being Mrs. Staddon.

Through months of prayer and struggling to stay under my father’s protection and guidance, the Lord showed that Robert was the one He ordained and thus began our courtship on November 22, 2010.  Due to struggles of keeping my heart guarded and trying to stay under my Dad and where he was leading, I was emotionally drained from my lack of faith and trying to take matters into my own hands, even daring to question my heavenly Father’s direction and giving up when times got tough. Therefore, I was tired and wasn’t quite ready to talk to Robert that first night when he phoned.  But despite my tiredness, emotional drain, and slight disinterest, Robert patiently won my heart . . . by letting me go. He never pushed, never insisted, never demanded, but phoned regularly, listened as I talked, shared from the wisdom and experience in his life, and covered me in prayer.  Before too long, I was in love and wondering how the Lord brought such a man into a life that was so undeserving.

No, I think Kendalyn, if I recall, wanted to be a nurse, not a wife. I don't think it was a boy.

Kendalyn's own words, from her blog:

 

"  I wanted to get into medical school and my father had a caution so I ended up taking my Home Health degree through correspondence (which was the best training I could have ever received!) "

 

Dear Daddy with a Caution: You are a world class douche.

Well of course a Home Health Degree (WTAF??) is better than medical school.  I'm thinking of chucking in my MD and getting one.  I guess this is the approved degree for all of those non-male OB/GYNs the fundies want.

Hm but the name Staddon isn't in the Bible, is it?

I phrased that wrong and made a convoluted mess. When I said I thought 'she' chose a boy, then settled for Daniel, I meant Kathryn, not Kendalyn. The similarities were in that they both had other ideas and didn't jump at the chance to be Mrs. Stodden - both had doubts and had to be convinced their god meant for them to marry their Stodden suitor.

Didn't a Staddon take reservations for the Last Supper? Or maybe I'm thinking of the Staddon who handled the wine order for the Wedding at Cana?

Remember, they also serve who stand and bungle.

Well it couldn't be KathrynlovesDaniel. That would be very forward. Tut tut @AmazonGrace

We also know that David loves Priscilla. Are there any more? Josh loves An....? No?

Ouch, I still think Anna has it better than Esther and even Pris. Though I know many would disagree with the latter.

Brandon loves Michaela is another. I think it's just the Gothardite standard for an engagement website, maybe. Manloveswoman.com .

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
