Lori Alexander is a Career Woman Now

She is officially a published author with a new blog (or self-published I think). Of course this is all OK, because her kids are grown so now she can have a career (or as they call them ministry).  This all leads back to this post.

Lori says:

“As you know, I don’t advertise on my blog and have never done this for money. I didn’t write this book to get a ton of money from it or to be famous. I have no desire for either. I only want to help as many women as I can in the short years the Lord has given me.”

That may be the intention to not make a lot of money or become famous, but what if she does? Like I mentioned in my linked post above, will she give the money to charity?  How about donate it to widows, so they will not have to get jobs and can stay in the home. Or if its about helping as many woman is possible, distribute them for free.

And what is it now with all these “wifes”.  There is the “joy filled wife”, “the peaceful wife”, and now the “transformed wife”.  These godly mentors need a line of dolls like the American Girl series. Imagine the joy of young girls who get to grow up with their own godly mentor doll.  You ain’t nobody in godlywomanville until you can anoint yourself as some type of adjective wife. I am waiting for “the semen filled wife” to come onto the scene. Maybe I’ll make an application for that one.

  1. Case on point:
    5.0 out of 5 starsSolid, biblical advice
    ByAmazon useron October 10, 2016
    If you are looking for solid biblical advice on marriage then this is the book for you. Lori’s blog has saved countless marriages.

    Alawys the saving of countless marriages story! But like I said, how many marriages have they harmed? Following red pill crap and godly women put me in a very rough patch for a time.
    Plus, no Lori does not save marriages. Its God who saves marriage, maybe working through her, but don’t say its on particular person.

  2. How can one “always learn” if you can’t ask questions? They all think they are saving so many people, so many marriages, but how many do you just never hear about. How many have been pushed away from Christianity based on their actions? Lori’s book boasts that her posts have been read by 5 million people. That no way means she has helped 5 million people. But a quick read of it and this how the brain interprets it. Most people are lurkers, hits from her famous viral post, etc.

  3. Hmm Stone, very interesting. I’ve also noticed the same behavior exists with another blogger who does allow disagreement, but she takes it to the point of martyrdom at times.

    It’s so uncanny how the behaviors follow a pattern on this “side” of the web.

  4. Maea,
    That is part of the inspiration behind this blog. I learned you can’t ever disagree with godly women. They think they are above disagreement. Its more infuriating dealing with them and trying to have a conversation than it is with feminists. They always assume from the get-go that you are from Satan (“the bible warns about people like you who do not love God’s ways”) and are here to cause division. They live in a glass house and can’t handle a disagreeing stone thrown their ways. They also talk down to you, question your faith (“you must not have a strong relationship with God”). They wear being “attacked” (when its just a disagreement) as a badge of honor that they are doing the Lord’s work. They think they are the light shining on darkness(darkness being anyone who disagrees), but anytime someone tries to call them out, catch an inconsistency or something that is just flat wrong, your comment doesn’t get through. Who is really afraid of the light? Why are they afraid of dissent?

  5. “I’ve written many comments on her blog questioning and critiquing her views and justification for judging what she believes are wrong things in other families– and they never make it past moderation.”

    Happened to me also. None of my comments on any blog, under this name or under the others I’ve used get past moderation any more. You have to agree with them 100% or you are blacklisted. Same with the ‘spherians. You must agree 100% or you are deleted, moderated, banned. etc. They are whited sepulchres. She has absolutely no clue as to reality. I’m really sorry that she’s had all the health problems she’s had, but that doesn’t justify her blasting women who also have severe health issues (like cancer?) and cannot get benefits and cannot even earn what they need to pay the electric bills.

  6. Lori keeps writing about women “attacking” her when the reality is, she won’t allow respectful dialogue for disagreement. I’ve written many comments on her blog questioning and critiquing her views and justification for judging what she believes are wrong things in other families– and they never make it past moderation. It’s vainglorious.

  7. Mrs. H,
    I googled. Wow truly is a real thing. I have to ask though, there are hundreds if not thousands of blogs and books like these, so are women really getting any better? You would think by now there would be so many marriageable young women. What do we ever see for men along these lines? Nothing, because making a marriage work is 100% on the wife.

  8. I fell into the Christian Wife University trap, too. Yet another rabbit hole for unsuspecting gals who long to be their husband’s #1…..and all of ’em lead to disappointment and longing for what you can’t have. Go to the REAL university, get a REAL degree and find your career path in life, either for full-time use or for part-time if you don’t have to work full-time while a Mom with small kids. You’ll be WAY better off.

  10. Ah. OK, then “the imperfect wife who knows perfectly well that she IS imperfect, and with full awareness that there will be no perfection on this side of eternity, so let’s be happy while we keep on working.”

  11. I propose that someone lift up “The Imperfect Wife”. If we did that a little more often, maybe there would be some hope and some charity in this mess of self-serving women. But of course Lori has already written about how evil that is.

  12. Oh, you forgot “The Excellent Wife” by Martha Peace. That one was a real winner, too. I read it about seven years ago and that started me on the three-ringed circus of trying to be the best wife in the entire world.

  13. “Seriously, there really seems to be a void for the semen-filled wife. I should write a book. Tagline would be “Harnessing the power of your husband’s seed to transform your life and marriage”.

    I really think you should do it, Stone. C’mon, why not capitalize on this; you’re already that evil career woman, working part-time, you! 🙂

    I wonder if Lori has put herself into the position of possible plagiarism, what with Stormie Omartain’s book that’s been out for literally years. (By the way, I typed in the title of her book into Amazon, and you should see what came up in the list right along with it — I suppose they go by words in the title…..)

  14. I forgot there is also the book “The Surrendered Wife” and “the Power of the Praying Wife”. So, we got…

    4. Surrendered Wife
    5. Praying Wife

    Its starting to remind me of the seven dwarfs or something from another movie…

  15. Cynthia has also been forced to move twice as she discovered that her apartment was next door to a drug dealer and her children were in danger…..she also had someone tamper with her vehicle at one point. Her late husband lost everything in some unfortunate business or investment decision or situation; she is very private about that, so I don’t know just what happened, only that when he died she was left with very little.

    I don’t think Lori will allow any one of us to post on either of her blogs. I know she has already banned me. However, if there is some way anybody can at least get through to her and suggest that she at least contribute some of these earnings to someone who — unlike herself — is truly completely dependent upon the providence of God, perhaps that might not be a bad idea. If she doesn’t, or doesn’t contribute to some other REAL charity to help widows in need (and by that I mean NOT to the Pearls and the rest of the No Greater Joy abusers), then she’s shown her true colors……

  16. TF, that is definitely a woman to support. Its easier for a lot of these wealthier godly to suppose what a life like that is like when they have never lived it. Sure, Lori has had her health issues, but always very well provided for with an orthodontist for a husband. The squeaky wheel gets the oil, gets the spotlight. There are so many real godly women who go without that you just never hear about because they actually are quiet. Its a good example of where the profits of Lori’s books should go.

  17. Isn’t writing feel good stuff not godly? The story of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, a shrew wife turning into a godly wife, a very feel good, warm and fuzzy tale.

  18. There is “cash and prizes” for having a miserable 23 first years of marriage too. You get to write a book all about it. The divorced women get ragged on for divorcing for “cash and prizes” and they too sometimes write books. But, if you have a story of triumph on the godly side you too can get “cash and prizes”. Like I joked about before, maybe there is a market for my “I was a red pill whore” story. Gee, and I was going to waste that good material on a post. I should do a book, JK!

  19. Ha! You are very snarky. This stuff does get annoying doesn’t it? I work, I’ve always worked at least part time. This is not rebellion or a lifestyle choice, this is called keeping the lights on. Imagine my surprise when I discovered I was actually a horrible wife, in complete rebellion, lacking all Christian virtue. Actually it really ticked me off.

  20. This takes the cake. Note when you purchase a domain name, IT COSTS MONEY. That’s spending your husband’s hard-earned money to promote your “ministry” aka “career”, isn’t it? So what’s wrong with the rest of us setting up Etsy shops and struggling to make a living? The self-righteousness of this nauseates me. Yeah, all these wonderful “wives” —

    “I am waiting for “the semen filled wife” to come onto the scene.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! 🙂 No kidding….what with the ‘spherian obsession with you-know-what, nothing would surprise me now.

    If you don’t mind me mentioning something on a far more serious note — if you would please visit the following lady’s blog:
    http://lifeasafascinatingwoman.blogspot.com/2016/09/an-important-announcement-and-request.html
    While Mrs. Berenger teaches Fascinating Womanhood classes, and therefore does endorse many things that are championed by the late Helen Andelin, she has been widowed twice, survived cancer, holds a part-time job outside the home as well as self-employment, and is in really desperate financial straits right now, while still having minor children to support. She’s certainly never been in the spotlight like a lot of these women are, and I can tell you — here’s someone who really needs the help and the financial support. She is a textbook case of all the pious admonitions that “the church will help you if you are widowed” is just that — nothing more than words written on paper; when the chips are down, the widow is truly on her own.

    She’s definitely not preachy, simply writing from her own perspective on life. If it seems right for you to help her with even a small amount, I know it will be gratefully appreciated. You can also write her personally.
