Introducing, Raised Quiverfull!

Nine young adults who were raised in families involved in the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements have come together here to answer questions about their upbringing, their questioning, and their transition to lives in the normal world. Ranging in age from their early twenties to their early thirties, all have questioned and left the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements and all but one blog against what they see as the destructive results of those movements.

These nine young adults come from an array of backgrounds (no two families in the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements are identical) and have today arrived at a variety of perspectives (while all have in some form questioned, rethought, and rejected the ideas behind the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements, their current positions on religion and family are not identical). One is male, four are students, five are parents, and two (Melissa and Sarah) are siblings.

The questions are divided into nine categories, each containing three to five related questions. I will be posting each question separately, and posting one category of questions each week for the next nine weeks. The first post will be up tomorrow. All of these questions will then be available under my Raised Quiverfull tab.
