Survivor Blogs: Compiling a List

For a while now, I’ve had a list of blogs by individuals who grew up in the Christian Patriarchy or Quiverfull movements and have since questioned and left. This list has grown as I’ve come upon additional blogs over the course of the past year and a half. I’d like to both bring the list to your attention and ask for your help in adding to it.

Of course, the boundaries of the Christian Patriarchy and Quiverfull movements are not clearly defined. In general, what I’m looking for is blogs by young adults who were influenced growing up by any of the following: ATI and Bill Gothard, Vision Forum, Sovereign Grace Ministries, Michael Farris, Reb Bradley, Mary Pride, Nancy Campbell, Doug Wilson, Michael Pearl, Jonathan Lindvall, and Joshua Harris. Generally these will be individuals who were homeschooled, or in some cases went to Christian school. The last criteria is that these individuals no longer ascribe to these movements and spend at least some of their blogging sorting through these ideas, refuting them, and analyzing the impact they had on their lives.

Here is what I have so far. Feel free to peruse these blogs, and please make suggestions regarding additional blogs in the comments.
