Wendy Watson Nelson Book: Not even Once Club


Soulhuntress

Recommended Posts

This is just wrong.   Not Even Once Club is about perfect children who never ever break a commandment.  This is the wife of the new LDS Prophet writing this crap.  Way to put excessive guilt on the kidlets.  This woman is a family therapist?  Lawd have mercy!

Right, because children are born perfect.  And stay that way.  I guess they skip right over the Terrible Twos in her family!

Looks like her husband just became church president (and is also 26 years older than her) so I think a lot of LDS folks will read this book to their children. How sad.

I'm also seeing that this woman doesn't have any children besides grown stepchildren. That kind of tells me a lot about this book. I am not surprised the author of this book has never raised children.

Perfect kids who do no wrong?  Sounds like this author is the Sarah Maxwell of the LDS world.

Makes me think of the story of the rich young ruler in Mark 10. Essentially he asks Jesus what he needs to do to have eternal life and Jesus says “keep the commandments” and the ruler is all like “yeah I’ve done that my whole life.”l So Jesus says “sell everything, give the money to the poor, and follow me,” and the ruler is like “nope.”

Ooooh, is there a story here?  Was the prophet a widower when they met?

Ick on the premise of the book, and the illustration style doesn't appeal.

It looks like his wife died unexpectantly in 2005 and he remarried in 2006. They had 10 grown kids together. I don't think Wendy was ever married before that. Her husband is in his early 90s now.

A couple of years ago, I heard an ex-Mormon podcast on this book (either Mormon Expositor or Mormon Expression, neither of which is being made anymore, but the archives are still available). As I recall, the main criticism was that the book instilled a hyper purity code that could be psychologically damaging to children if they make a minor mistake. From my perspective, it’s also problematic that they put drinking tea, drinking alcohol, and taking illegal drugs as being one and the same. If nothing else, this book illustrates the sort of damaging attitudes that made Elizabeth Smart feel like she didn’t deserve to be rescued after being kidnapped and raped.

      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,

      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!
