Lamplighter books--anything good in there?

I just realized I've been confusing the Lamplighter publishing with VF. I've not heard LL discussed here--are they fundy?

Also, I saw a Dobson book at the library--it was on raising adolescent girls. Would any of you brave souls (if you believe in souls that is) dare to read it?

What was it called? If my library has it I can give it a shot. I actually made it about 2/3 of the way through "Bringing Up Boys" before I got tired of reading the repeated tirade of "ebil feminists, gayz, working and single mothers, and librulz!"

My mum has just about the whole collection, I think. I haven't read any in a loooong time, so I may be a bit off on my recollections...they were well-written, in the effusive, flowery style of the late 1800's/early 1900's. There was an emphasis on spiritual growth, and doing good works. And at least two ("Wide, Wide World" & sequel) had Elsie-Dinsmore-ish submission (a teenage orphan girl to her overbearing relatives). Nonetheless, I enjoyed reading them...but my reading preferences have changed since then :)

Natalie Klejwa of Visionary Womanhood is a big fan. She recommends saving your pennies to buy Lamplighter books instead of going to the evil public library.

I used to like Lamplighter books until I found out that they have edited at least a few of them. In The Lamplighter they removed most of the romance, and in The Hidden Hand, they added extra "christian" stuff at the end. I imagine they've done it to the other books too.

I surmise this is the print department of Lamplighter radio dramas? I used to listen to them and found them entertaining, but then I'm a total radio nerd. None of them were Christian IMHO, just moralistic. When I realized they were associated with Vision Forum, I couldn't enjoy them in the same way.

Well I found dobsons book on girls at my library (and one on preparing for adolescence) so I'll see how far I get and report back.

I haven't read any of the Lamplighter books, but I'd been curious about them. If you check our their website, it's obvious that they edit the books. I think if one of their books caught my fancy, I'd try to track down a used, non-Lamplighter version so I could get the original.

So Lamplighter IS sorta related to VF. Ok that explains my confusion.

I read the Kingdom books by David and Karen Mains, have them and still love them.

When I first started homeschooling, my sister was kind enough to get me a sub. to Focus on the Family magazine. If the books are anything like those, you don't want to read it. :)

      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

      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!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
