Broken Daughters

Picking up the shattered glass of fundamentalism


If you don’t want to contact me via comments on my blog, you can email me any time at

UPDATE: A few words on certain types of emails:

Advertising: At present I do not accept ads of any type. This blog is my hobby, and as silly as it sounds, I’d like to keep it this way. I also do not wish to be featured on any feature-type main site, unless it is clearly related to the topics of this blog.

Reviews: I am not opposed to reviews on books in general, however they should be clearly related to the things I discuss on my blogs. I will not review any unrelated material. If you have a book on the issue on Patriarchy/Quiverful or something related, and you can send me an e-copy (NO hard copies), I will gladly feature it.

Guest posts: I have been receiving large numbers of emails interested in guest posts. However, many of these mails appear to have different intentions. I will not feature any guest posts on issues that are not clearly related to the main content of the blog.

Please take this information to heart. It had become virtually impossible for me to find genuine emails among all those asking for ads, features and other business related inquireries. A lot of times, I have issues finding out if an email in personal.

You can find me on Facebook too, either ony my private profile or on my blog page.

I’m having problems with the links at the moment (because I changed my blog theme, grrr), so if the Facebook links don’t work, just go to Facebook and look for Lisa Bennet. My profile picture is the same flower you can see on my header.

  1. I’ve been at the edge of my seat reading all of your blogs, all I can say is – amazing!! You are a very gifted writer, please keep it up. As for your story, I am so sorry you had to live through all of that – God Bless you as you are making your way through the world in your new found freedom, and thank you for helping the rest of us understand where you are coming from. I am not a Broken Daughter, but I have learned that the movement is making it’s way through main stream churches all over the place ( we left our mega church when we discovered most all of the leadership were secretly followers of the No Greater Joy ministries by Michael and Debi Pearl). It is not how I want to raise my kids and my heart breaks for the families who have adopted their set of beliefs. There is so much to argue as you know just from a biblical stand point, their doctrine is false and I hope and pray that more stories like yours make it to the eyes and hearts of people who just don’t get it. Anyway, just wanted to say thank you and God Bless you. I can’t wait to read more of your story šŸ™‚

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your story. I’m so sorry for your pain! I’m going to share my own story soon and this gave me much needed encouragement. I’m writing a book right now and I’d like to quote you. May I? You can read some of my work at God bless you!

  3. Hi Lisa, as I mentioned in my first comment here, I came to your blog via Butterflies & Wheels and I spent the entire day reading your blog. It is so fascinating to me as I grew up in what would be a completely alien environment to yours. I’ve subscribed and yours will be added to the list of blogs I check out daily. I just want to invite you over for tea or coffee and chat about stuff: all the cultural stuff you missed out on, all the science and history you weren’t taught about…I feel like I want to be your big sister. lol. But anyway, I’m in Canada, so that’s not going to happen. I’m just going to hang around on your blog and talk to you about whatever you’re talking about. I might even start up my own blog (again).

  4. I enjoyed reading your posts, we have very different backgrounds, but I can relate to alot of your feelings about living in Europe, and coming out of your American bubble. All of the stuff you have posted about the differences between the countries is spot on, and your story is also fascinating. It takes a lot of courage and guts to leave everything that is familiar and strike out into the unknown. I have also found that here I am much closer to my nationality than being actually in the US. Hope to read more of your adventures.

  5. Lisa,
    I hope you keep writing! I have recently found your blog and you write so beautifully. You should publish a memoir about your life. I’m sending prayers and good “vibes” your way. šŸ™‚

  6. Hoping all is well with you. You are thought of and missed. Praying for you, dear. Love, Ms. Kari in Minnesota.

  7. Trouble with links so don’t know what your beliefs now are but am so sad about thisQF movement.I grew up in fundamental church but this is so foreign to me. I believe it started with the founder conducting meetings in th 70’s and has infected the Christian church .Though I believe our pastor embraced some of it’s tenet’s, he preached against the QF founders,as several young families were caught up in it. 2 of those families left the church and and later divorced. I don’t know if the Hyles Aderson scandle has reached your ears,but I feel Jack Hyles embraced these tenets and made them his own version and hence these patriarchy teachings have infested churches all over the country,all this has left me heart broken and I’m sure the Lord is too.

  8. I just wanted to leave you a note and say I really, really love your blog. I grew up in a somewhat fundamentalist church as well, though nothing like you experienced, and your writing is such an accurate portrayal of all that’s broken in our churches today.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Please don’t ever stop writing.

  9. Hi Lisa: Somehow I stumbled upon your blog tonight. I read quite a bit of your story. My heart and eyes are misty and I am praying God’s blessings for you. I am saddened to hear of your grief, pain and heartache. I am believing for joy and peace and strength and redeeming freedom for you. I hope you’ve been able to find a healing counselor and friend who is helpful and supportive. Thinking about you and praying for you. There is great strength deep inside you and I believe you will see it more and more in 2014. God loves you SO much! Blessings, Cara
