introduction of our family

I hate doing these. It is like selling yourself. LOL.
My name is AL and my wonderful wife of 10 years is Ellen. We met online in a chat room and married about a month after we met in chat. We met face to face for the first an hour before our wedding. We have 2 wonderful children ages 3 and 9. My wife came to me years ago about Polygamy said God had called us to it. I rejected that notion quickly but agreed to pray and seek God. I knew in my heart that seeking God I would prove her wrong. Wow was I shocked when I found God had truly called His people to walk in this. We have been rejected by friends and family for our belief in Godly bible based polygamy. MY wife and I have a large age difference but we know God chose us to be man and wife. After all age is just a number. I am 53 and my wife is 29. We would love to find a sisterwife that is Godly but not caught up in religious trappings. WE are open to a woman with children and a woman aged 25-45. But also a woman older or younger if God so desires. We have a ministry that we would like her to be a part of. We are not part of any denomination and mostly shun the church world. We were told we werent welcome at a church because we are an inter racial couple. If you would like to know more about us or our walk with the Lord feel free to ask.

Hi, I’m new!

Hello, I’m new to the board and to Plural marriage. I am Amy and I’m currently in the process of joining a family. My best friend and soon to be hubby.. :D

This is all very new to me and we are taking it one day at a time. We are in Tulsa, OK. It was a long journey getting here and God is working in our family as we move toward the future and a permanent and biblical covenant marriage.

I’m hoping to make friends and find support as I’m striving to be a good sisterwife and learn how others do this! ;)

My SW nikismom aka Gidgit is by best friend and now she can truly be my sister. We grew up together and I am so happy that I am getting to join her family! :)

Polygamist Ancestory/Family History

I’ve been working on my family history and have come across what looks to be polygamist roots – what I’m struggling with is trying to figure out which children belong to which parent/spouse and finding that children are listed under multiple locations. What is the best way to sort this family history out and how can I find living descendants of those roots who may or may not be practicing?

Prayer for a family in need

Hi all,

Just wanted to ask for prayer for a family in need. The mom lost her husband about four months ago and is having a hard time coming up basic things as she is working and all her income is going to pay the bills.She and her husband were in a plural marriage and so everything is limited on the resources that she has. The second wife has actually went back to her family.There are four children and so all prayers are very much needed.

Hanukkah / Chanukah and Christmas

I am curious if BF members observe or celebrate Hanukkah in some manner and if so does your family celebrate Christmas in some manner also, especially if you have children in the home.

We do both in our family. I am not a big Christmas fan while my husband grew up with family traditions surrounding Christmas.
Some years the kids will get presents during Hanukkah only by us and Christmas gifts from extended family, then on other years there are only presents during Christmas. Regardless of how we handle each holiday we always try to emphasize Christ in the holiday.

New in Town

Let’s see where do I start…my head is still a spinnin’

As of about a couple days ago if you had asked me if Polygyny was Biblical, I probably would have told you you were crazy. I was convinced that it was strictly an Old Testament thing (‘er except for those 1 Timothy 3:2, 12 et al. passages that I could never quite digest…).

A couple of days ago the Lord gave me a vision that is emblazoned in my head (more on that later) that I am convicted to mean that I will take headship over a large poly family. Um. Wow. The vision was not at all sexual in nature, in fact it felt more pure than anything I have experienced before, but the vision has persisted as clearly as a high resolution photo in my hand. After some prayerful research, I have confirmed the basis of the vision with scripture. I sort of spilled the beans about the vision to my wife during some intimate time (big mistake) and she was completely clueless to it all. After I peeled her off the ceiling, we talked about it and, while I don’t think she is fully onboard, I can see that she trusts the validity of the vision and obediently honors my headship. Next steps…next steps…

I am a reformed Christian (TULIP, solas, etc.) and my family and I attend a small family-integrated church. I am 40 and a native to, and resident of, Washington state. I am a Navy veteran (7 years). I have a beautiful wife of 17 years (my H.S. sweety) and we have a great marriage. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful boys (+1 on the way). We homeschool and spend a great deal of time as a family playing games, going to organic farms, camping, oh and doing laundry (it never ends).

I am so happy to have found BFO and will support in any way I can. Nice to be here. This is both a new and wonderful place to be. The ways of God are good.

What Is A ‘Biblical’ Family?

. . . This may seem like an silly question, but I would like to get some feedback:

What is a ‘Biblical’ family?

*Is a couple a ‘family’?
*Can a family be a ‘family’ with or without children?
*How is the ‘Biblical’ family different than the world’s definition of family?
