I grew up in the church, been on a mission, worked in the temple for 2 years, and my uncle was a polygamist, as a result I have 56 cousins ish. Additionally I have been to the polygamist colony several years ago and have a good understanding of extremes. My mother and i have helped
Some of our family leave the Colony in BC, Canada. What I mean by help them leave is, go and pick them up in the middle of the night, then get the family ASAP and leave without a trace or being caught. Its creazy to listen to individuals who lived in an environment to where polygamy or any other extreme beliefs are considered normal. its Great to see you seperate yourself from this
Ha! Nine kids! Wow! You are way beyond my 5! It is fun to have a big family, but not at all what I thought it would be like from having my head stuffed full of how that is my only great reason for existence in life. I have enjoyed the freeing feelings of letting go of the dogmatic ideas and pressures of being a women caught in the lds church. I am very happy to be raising a family and feel that it is a gift to the world. We too have chosen to TRY at least, to raise FREE THINKERS! What a blast. So much better than trying to shove kids into a crappy non- sensible mold. My children are very very fortunate to have the options available to them and the acceptance that I never had. Glad we are friends!!
Hi Mary. I had a pretty fun childhood in Enterprise...mostly raising hell because it was very slow otherwise! I'm not closely related to the Williams clan you mentioned. My dad's family came to southern Utah from southeast Idaho. I have lots of relatives (Robinsons, Ortons) in the Parowan area via my mother. Cedar City and St. George were the big cities when I was young! I lived in Edmonton from 2001-2006, and still miss Alberta (at least during the summers--lol). What about you? Have you lived in Cedar very long? Do you get up to southern Alberta very often?
