Thinking of calling all of these Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife posts on her Facebook that demonstrate her lack of all reason ‘Amazing Tales With Lori!’
I do apologize for posting a second day in a row about Lori but she earned this spot by her lies about living life without electricity or water. Not that Lori has ever done that herself. I cannot see Lori even glamping (lux camping) much less roughing it in the wildness in some fashion.
One of the discussions today at Lori’s chatroom and message board involved living within your budget, even if that meant doing without electricity and water. Many people tried to point out to Lori that having your power and water shut off will earn you a visit from DHS or CPS. Lori said that they were lying and the deleting commenced. Lori actually deleted each and every comment warning of a social worker visitation while claiming that off gridders do it all the time.
Followed this discussion at Things Godly Women Say.
In Lori’s world the truth is whatever Lori decides and it is oh so rarely rooted in the truth. Most of these people and posts warning Lori she is wrong have been since deleted by Lori. Way to go, Lori! Way to put your followers at risk of a CPS visit!
The truth is that having no water is especially one of those things that mandatory reporters call in to social services. Why? Because it’s important for the sake of health and hygiene purposes to have access to clean water.
We’ve recently talked of this here at No Longer Quivering when one of Nancy Campbell’s writers made this claim in her post about living on one income. It’s not against the law to not have running water and electricity, but it is a clear sign to most in the children’s safety advocacy world that it’s unlikely that there is adequate toilet facilities, no water to wash dishes, clothing or bodies. An unsanitary and unsafe environment for children.How do I know this? I worked in the field for many years with neglected and abused children. I have seen this water situation first hand a number of times. It’s one of the quickest ways to gain CPS attention quicker than you can say ‘Windmills and artesian wells.’ As usual Lori does not know anything about what she is speaking of.
Usually with off the grid living people do have water. They prepare for things like generating their own water and electricity, or making basic sanitary arrangements. It takes time, planning and money, all that seem to be in short supply in Quiverfull.
This awful and very ignorant seeming woman has written both a life advice book and a Bible study book, but I wouldn’t recommend either one. Lori’s books and websites are filled with dangerous and very wrong advice.
