The Visionary daughters have next lined-up to be praised, feted and dined as they parade themselves in historical costumes. If Elizabeth Botkin wants to follow Anne Boleyn’s footsteps does that mean she’d consent to be the mistress of the same man who consorted with her sister? Do these girls at all know history? And also the assumption that Anne Boleyn and Jeanne D Albert were blue-blooded Christians who would be watching their teensy little play from heaven above…the egoism, the assumptions, the vanity and the ignorance. Anne Boleyn promoted Christians for political ends ….just as surely as Geofry Botkin is using his girls as pin-up stars of the homeschooling community for commercial ends. Do read Overcoming the Botkin Syndrome!
Correct Ans: Because he promised her a closet full of clothes.
Check Fascinating Womanhood for the full-length interview Lydia has given to Helen Andelin.
Excerpts from the interview:
I was also interested to learn from this study that girls have to create interest in marriage for men. The prospect of having a home and family can be just as compelling for a men, if only the picture were drawn for them and made to be an advantage to their lives as well. I had been desperately trying to find a partner for life, but was going about it totally in the wrong way. I know many young women who are perfect in every way, but they do not know how to attract a good man. They fail to understand what it takes to motivate men to marry. I always suggest a serious study of this book to alleviate that predicament!
One of the principles taught in this course was developing the spiritual side by consistent Bible study and church attendance. I began to attend church faithfully, and one day to my surprise the young, handsome, single minister, 8 years old than me, asked me to join him at a church dinner. I wasn’t at all sure that I liked him, as we didn’t really “click”right away, and it certainly wasn’t love at first sight. He later said he had observed me out of the corner of his eye on many occasions and began to ask me to come to various church events and accompany him on hospital visits and visits to shut-ins.
I still find it hard to believe but in six weeks he had made up his mind that I would be his wife, and asked me to marry him. He told me of his many plans and ambitions, and suggested that if I did not marry him he would lose his enthusiasm for these things. Of course I did ask him if he felt quite sure and wouldn’t he rather continue on a friendship basis with me. I remember distinctly that he said, “I’ve already got lots of friends! I want a wife.”
I protested only once more. I said that I was not prepared to be someone’s wife, having only a suitcase with a few clothes, a Bible and a diary, to my name. He told me, “If you will marry me I’ll fill your closet full of beautiful dresses and provide everything else you need.” Thirty-three years later I must tell you, he has kept that promise. I’ve had to clean out those closets many times! He bought me a sewing machine for our wedding and has supplied me with the fabric I needed to sew whatever was necessary for myself and the children, over the years.

Sweeping the cobwebs is a great new site, which dishes out the dirt strong and plenty on Lady Lydia. And mind you these are all Christian ladies, who are finding Lady Lydia un-Christian and nasty.
There is a great post called “Do what I say, God says,” on Lady Lydia’s article “Do What God Says Do and Let Him Take Care of the Rest“. And there is another introductory piece on Lady Lydia, “A Big Welcome to Lady Lydia.”
Insights on Lady Lydia:
Debbie said: “Funny LL should mention the homeless. Our church helps a shelter and a speaker came last Sunday. She said that about 88% percent of the homeless in our county are women and About 90% of those have children.
Kind of hard to be a keeper at home when you don’t have a home to keep.
What a pompous arse she is.”
Sweeping the cobwebs says: “”Lady” Lydia is very, very concerned that people will rip off her articles, but has no conviction against posting entire pages of mainstream magazines on her site.”
“She claimed to not know Candy, when they have a long relationship in the blogging world.”
Clare said: “Additionally the handle “Lady Lydia Speaks” is just too self regarding and twee for my taste.”
Lydia loves to show herself off on the net. But thanks to trolls like us on the net, she dare not post-up full-length blown-up pictures of herself. She also doesn’t want people to see her wrinkles or her unsightly rolls of fat. So here we have her posting more pictures of herself on her blog. But they are very tiny, very tiny – so that people don’t get to see the real Lydia!
She says she wearing the gun for “protection.” What sacrilege! She is snatching away the hard-won caveman rights of her hubby to be her “protector.” She ought to be damned and sent to hell for such unfeminine, feminist conduct!
We all know how pretentious Lydia is! As further proof of how scared she is that the general public will get to see her wrinkles, here she posts some more out-of-focus pictures of herself! The photographs are apparently an illustration of how much she resembles Edmund Blair Leighton’s paintings! My, my! The vanity of that woman!
And she also doesn’t take her own advice. In the article she says: “If you are a large lady, and your face is very round, do not wear a broad collar like this, but keep the v-shape at the neck, perhaps outlined in a sew-in trim in a coordinating color. Elongate the figure with the flat panel in the front. In the back, the gathers that come from tying it, will give slimness also. ”
Since she has rolls of fat everywhere (which she always tries to hide from the camera with long-distance shots), why didn’t she taker her own advice and make the garment accordingly.
Or is she under the illusion that she’s thin?
Here is another delusionary feature on herself! Here again she keeps her wrinkle-laden face out of the camera, while she imitates another painting.
