Lady Lydia does not practise what she preaches!


Lady Lydia does not believe in following what she says.   

So, when people like Jennie Chancy, Stacy McDonald, Lydia Sherman, and of course, Doug Phillips stand up to lead a church, to write books, to start public blogs, then they ought to expect not only criticism but scrutiny. Not only should we be looking at what they preach but also at how they live it. It is the old adage, “they can talk the talk, but can they walk the walk?” Could we go too far in investigating their private lives? Of course. Everyone deserves privacy. However, when a person preaches a particular way of living, it is only fair that they are held to their own standards. Should we go dig up dirt about these men and women from their past? No. But neither should we let their theology, comments, or actions go by without any accountability.

Here are some little known facts about the family:
Debt & Finance:

The private circumstances of any individual is no concern of others you might say. But when Lady Lydia preaches that women going to work only causes more expenses and the way to frugal living is through housewifery; then we feel bound to shatter some of the myths she has created around herself.
  • Lady Lydia and her husband are in huge debt. They have no savings and they still haven’t cleared their debts (So how dare she talk about frugal living?)
  • Lady Lydia or her family does not own any house or land. The property that they are so fond of photographing and putting up on their blog is a rental, property of the Church of Lancaster (So how dare she writes article after article on how responsible Christian parents must leave an inheritance – house/land/money – for their children?) 
  • Lady Lydia does not have any insurance; not even health insurance. The reason her daughter had all four babies at home was because they didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford to go the hospital and had to have a mid-wife. (So how dare she says the state health care system is bad, when its obivous she can’t afford it?)
  • Lady Lydia’s husband does MLM, but is quite unsuccesful at it. Lady Lydia assists him in his MLM activities, including visiting clients.
Lollybeth & Living on charity:
  • Lady Lydia’s daughter Lollybeth and her husband stay with them, because they couldn’t afford a place of their own after the son-in-law lost his job (So how dare she writes articles criticising other men, whose wives work?)
  • The son-in-law still hasn’t got himself a job. So he does MLM marketing part-time and preaches occasionally. (What right has she to preach her one-income lifestyle is better, when her family affairs are in such shambles? And when her own son-in-law is in college though he can’t afford it, why is it bad and unaffordable for girls to be in college?
  • The Bumpfries cousins on The Unpleasant Times are actually the Merman family themselves. Lollybeth says: “the Bumpfries live below poverty level.” (And yet look at the snobbery and racism….My, My)
  • Lollybeth and her husband are in huge debt and live on the charity of close relatives and friends. (Very manly, isn’t it? The head of the house supported by charity?)
  • Lollybeth’s husband (father of 4)  is studying a full-time course in Architecture, financed by his parents. He does not hold any full-time job. He has also taken student loans, which he has not repaid. (Nice, not only does someone take care of his family, someone also foots his college expenses and takes care of those loans. How manly is that?)
  • Lollybeth lives on the charity of near and dear ones. The expenses to run her family of six is meted out by her parents and in-laws. 
  • Lollybeth and her family of six stay in the garage of her parents’ rented house (for which they don’t pay the rent, but the parish does.)
  • Lady Lydia’s two sons are indepedant and live away from her; contrary to her principles of adult children staying with the family
  • Lady Lydia herself at the age of 18, chose to stay a single women in America when her entire family left for Australia. She chose to attend Bible classes and marry someone, totally unknown to her parents. (So what right does she have to say “women shouldn’t go to college,” “women should stay at home” or “courtship/betrothal is better than dating?”)
Lady Lydia’s business activities:
  • Lady Lydia is a woman of merchandise. Though she does not want other women to engage in the sordid world of commerce, she holds jobs and earns money. She also acts as PA fo her husband’s MLM activities.
  • If you thought all the pretty pictures at LAF and Homeliving are for decoration, you are wrong! Lady Lydia, Lollybeth and Jennie Chancey have consistently promoted Victorian art, because they have signed up with online art dealers. They have posted more than 2,000 pictures all in all…so look at the amount of money they make with each click.
  • Lady Lydia and Lollybeth have had to support their husbands through their sewing business, affiliation through Allposters.com, online shop at CafePress and as speakers for SAHM-patriocentric conferences.
  • Lady Lydia likes to pride herself as an author, but not more than a dozen books have been sold and of the three reviews the book received at Lulu.com, two were planted.
  • Lady Lydia has no savings, only debt, but lives a hedonistic, consumerist lifestyle. There are four cars in their garage, four computers, TVs, even a swimming pool...just about everything – and all of it is still unpaid for. Lady Lydia is a firm believer in installments, so they just keep buying more stuff and pay the lowest installment on it.
  • Lady Lydia has made many racist remarks about black slaves in America, snobbish remarks about the state of undress of the victims of Katrina, on KOOPs – other people’s kids and has labelled the women at White Washed Feminists, TrueWomanhood as “silly women.” When there was controversy about her posts, she immediately deleted them but evidence of them can be found in other sites.

    i’m still trippin’ off of your website. how do you know all these things? are you a scorned friend getting revenge? and again, why don’t you have a life. i don’t understand the point in all this. God help you both.

      I agree, kab! This tacky page violates copyright law and the Sherman family’s privacy. I’m surprised that WordPress allows it.

      Let’s assume for a minute that all you wrote is true–so what? Who better to teach about frugal living that someone working his or her way out of debt? In addition, it’s an unfortunate reality that many ministers of small congregations do have to supplement their incomes. What’s wrong with selling insurance?

      About Mrs. Sherman’s book: I checked today on Lulu.com and her book ranking is 1,517, which means that she has sold a lot more than a dozen books. I know a Lulu author who has sold over fifty copies of her book, and her sales rank is in the 10,000s, so I know that Mrs. Sherman has sold more.

      The posters, etc? The modern equivalent of butter and egg money!

      Get a relationship with Jesus, then get a life!

      • Dear Ceebee2thee,

        his tacky page violates copyright law and the Sherman family’s privacy. I’m surprised that WordPress allows it.

        Can you please tell me how I am violating the copyright law? Lady Lydia has made public statements on her blog and at the Ladies Against Feminism site. This blog is only criticizing the racist, anti-women views she has expressed. If any blog has to be shut down it is http://www.homeliving.blogspot.com for the racist views it holds.

        She has criticized many Christian men for letting their wives work. How can she criticize them for wanting to live debt-free when her husband is unable to provide for her?

        Really? Her book hopefully is only about her childhood (in which we hope she held non-racist views) so its sales should not affect the secular world much

        Aah because she’s a liar? Why would you take advice from someone who lives in a fantasy world?

        If you ask me she’s a scam artist.

  2. Kaye

    Tsk. Tsk. Wow! You all really need to spend more time on something that will help instead of picking on one person. Mrs. Lydia must have really rattled the cage for someone to have so much revenge to get out of their system.

    I find this all very unladylike. Sorry. Not impressed.

    • Mary

      she destroyed MY mother’s life when she was vulnerable and convinced her to disown my brother since he refused to follow what Lydia said and disown our father. i’m sure she has done much damage to many other people, she is an evil woman!

  3. TF

    How incredibly filled with hatred you are. Think of all the positive things you could be doing in the time you’re spending spewing out your hatred.

    What an incredible waste of your precious hours of life. You are truly pitiable.

  4. Sparky

    So how do Lollybeth and her family live in that garage if there are four cars in it? Hmmm, I think something’s not quite right about all these allegations.

  5. rena

    To whom it may concern,

    What is the big deal about Lady Lydia. No one is perfect. So here this, Mind YOUR OWN BUSINESS. Whining about what she does will not get you anywhere nor does anybody care what you have to say. If you want some thing changes do it yourself without bitching about how someone else does.

    • Mary

      it would be nice if “Lady” Lydia minded her own business… instead of breaking up families and turning them against each other.

  6. Annie

    Well, I must say, you don’t seem to get much support for what you say. I love Lady Lydia’s articles. too bad for you!

  7. Have any of you checked out the Christian feminist- forced sterilizations-eugenics connection out of Alberta, Canada?

  8. PS
    Since you like to call Lydia a racist, why not look into Christian feminism’s racist past? Someone should.

  9. suzi q.

    Yea…go to Google Earth and try and find a pool in their yard. You people are dispicable.

  10. suzi q.

    You also should be looking to be sued by someone repsonsible….you slander this family and should be taken to task for it. You must be outta your minds!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. LV

    Hilarious!! I love this site, please keep adding more. Bravo!

  12. isobel

    I’m so, so glad that you’ve taken the time to call these wretched people on their blatant hypocrisy–not to mention their lies, racism, and misogyny. What disgusting people!

  13. Exactly…Google Earth and see no pool. You are a bunch of fools.

  14. smart princess

    Keep exposing these people, they deserve it.

    When you place yourself on a public pedestal, you are inviting us into your “holier than thou” lives.

  15. Mary

    Lydia has been instrumental in destroying families. she has encouraged, nay, DEMANDED children to disown their father, and when they chose to honor both father & mother as the bible instructs, she instructed a mentally unstable woman to disown the children. She uses the woman as a puppet to play manipulative games with members of her congregation, driving members out with harassment and slander. She is an evil woman, a hypocrite, a liar, a manipulator, and a con woman.

  16. Mary

    btw, they did have an above ground pool for a time, i live nearby.

  17. qtrixie

    Well, well, well….Looks like Doug Phillips has been having a longstanding affair and has stepped down from Vision Forums ministry.

    I’m glad somebody made this all clear! I always knew this woman was a hypocrite, but the SCALE of her hypocrisy just blows my mind…at least now I really, REALLY know that all that she says can be taken with a pinch of salt, and she’s not even worth fighting. Probably doesn’t even have the sense to understand my responses to her posts anyway.
