The Smear Campaign Expands

posted in: Harassment, True Colors | 11

A few of Faiths family members received this message from a fake profile that was immediately disabled after the messages were received.

I want Faith’s family to know along with everyone else, what the reality is, not some internet gossip. Its unfair to Faith, and wrong for anyone to try to sabotage the families relationships.


Not going to run down the family with their opinions, yet that’s exactly what they did. They used false information to try to discredit us and cause false concerns.

Joe was never married to Crystal Brow, Alex’s mother. As sad as it sounds, Crystal was a one night stand where the condom broke. Joe and I had broken up a few weeks prior. He was in NH, I was living in Texas. Alex was never abandoned. In fact, during her pregnancy she wasn’t even sure who the dad was. Alex was born looking just like his father, and a blood test later confirmed it. You can read the story here The Story Of Alex  


Alex did allege in court and on camera in May of 2015 that he was physically and sexually abused by Joe. These are false allegations. While they are impossible to prove or disprove, there is enough to show the intent behind the fabricated story. Alex has numerous mental disorders. We have audio and images that will tell that story soon. There is a lot to it and it will expose Alex in a way that I am not ready to do. My hope is that he will make an open apology before I have to got down that rabbit hole. Remember we have been documenting for years. CPS had no concerns for any of our children living with us. There are no signs of physical or sexual abuse.

Our unconventional method of homeschooling is widely misunderstood. And I’m not going to sit here and debate it. However, with permission from him, this is Jacobs reading test scores. While its just one aspect, it quickly disproves the above accusation. My children have never prepped for testing and these were  done under quite a bit of emotional stress. As I have stated before, my children’s scores were all over the place. Some who did poorly in the beginning were getting great grades in their summer school programs once they were able to settle a bit and focus. My children’s intelligence is observed on a daily basis with our activities, and anyone who interacts with them can verify that. I do not need a piece of paper to give value to my children’s abilities. But for those that desire, this is how one gets a homeschool diploma


Jacob has gainful employment, and has not only kept a steady job, but has already had a raise and promotion and was named employee of the month. His supervisors speak highly of his character, work ethic and his intelligence. He has plans for a career path outside of his current job and I am fully confident in his ability to move forward.


The only aggressive police action has been the Sheriff violating our rights. We do not initiate or encourage such behavior, in fact we do not condone it. To call us a compound is a language control tactic. Its our home, nothing more. We are not isolationists, maybe non interventionists. We do like to keep to ourselves and I don’t see that as a bad thing. To say we do not tolerate outside opinions  is very short sighted. I’m sure many people do not want certain ideas being taught to their children. We certainly aren’t opposed to new ideas, and my children aren’t brainwashed by any means.

The comment about our police interactions speaks volumes. What they mean is that we know our rights, we invoke our rights and we record all police interaction for our safety and for accountability. We are never aggressive. I’ve made many mentions to the fact that I am unapologetically opposed to police corruption and brutality. We support causes that expose these events. If this bothers you that is a reflection upon you and not us.

Our relationship with our families isn’t as simple as that statement. Neither Joe or I talk to our mothers or fathers with the exception of a distant relationship with my father. We have little communication with our siblings, with the exception of casual conversation with our sisters. That has nothing to do with out current family. We do have a relationship with aunts, uncles, cousins etc. We have not isolated our children from my mother. They have the choice. I do not know if my mother authorized the release of her info but I did block it out. My children are in contact with any family members they choose, even if we are not.


This paragraph here really solidifies the goal. These people have been hell bent on tearing my family apart since day 1. They see this child as an opportunity, a tool for them, to try to control our choices because they don’t understand and they don’t approve. You can read the vile tone, the disgust in their voices. Using words like’ indoctrinated” and “sacrifices”. That is not our reality.

Time and time again I have shown that my children are mentally and physically sound. I’m not here to convince you anything. If you don’t get it, you won’t. But I will expose anyone and everyone who tries to destroy my family. And to drag another family into this madness just empowers me more. This needs to stop.

  1. Seriously!

    Wow, it’s hard to believe that someone would be that cruel! At a time when a young couple are trying to figure things out and plan their future, a person decides they need to step in and say these things about Jacob and his family. That whole message reeks of trying to stir up trouble. The comments about Alex should not have been included since no action was taken at the time of his testimony. For others to keep bringing it up is painful to all parties involved. If true, Alex may not want it posted over and over. If not true, it further tarnishes Joe’s reputation and stands as a barrier to him and Alex ever having a relationship. The only ones who know for sure if anything happened is Joe and Alex. Everyone needs to stop interfering in that issue. Alex, may at some point, seek professional help to overcome whatever scars he received in his childhood. Allow him the time to decide what he needs to do. The other 11 children don’t need this blasted all over about their father. If, at some point, there is proof one way or another it should be used by those involved to try to get the best outcome and the closure of all involved. It doesn’t need to be shared or made public, unless those directly affected choose to share it. Those who scream in behalf of Alex are not doing him any favors. Until he is ready to seek help to deal with his past, people just need to leave him out of it. Nicole, I read your blog about Alex before he ever became a part of all this. You seemed honest and sincere in your writing. You talked about the struggle you had over learning about him and the jealousy you felt about Joe and his mother. The heartbreak you felt over miscarrying Joe’s child. The connection you made with Alex and then bearing a son and a few years later another and the live Alex and Jacob had for each other. The loss and helplessness you felt when you were tricked into sending Alex to see his grandmother. The timing of events and hopelessness at being to poor to fight the system. How you tried to contact the authorities through the years to reconnect the family. It all had a ring of truth to it. I pray if Joe is innocent in this, that at some point he and Alex can have a real relationship. It could lead to a healing for many of his firstborn’s wounds. What happened was traumatic for all involved. If Joe is guilty, I pray that Alex can find a way to heal and at some point reconnect with his siblings. No matter what, Alex was given a raw deal at an early age.

    UGH, WHYYYYYY do people have to act like such assholes and intervene where they are not wanted or needed. Your son and his fiance would find a way out if that is what they wanted. It is apparent she feels fine/safe/okay where she is, and it is apparent that Jacob is doing well, especially for a soon to be young father.

    You are doing good Nicole. I am sorry these asses continually harass you and your loved ones. I truly hope they find a life of their own.

    I really hope that Joe’s older child doesn’t bow down to your threats and holds firm to the truth. I am really disappointed that you would exploit his issues for that. You realise kids that are abused physically or sexually have more mental disabilities than children in a safe, stable environment right?

    I’m incredibly sad that your kids won’t be able to show their strengths through higher education. God forbid they want to do something with their life, they are going to have a long road ahead of them. I think about them often.

    Okay. How about starting with the fact that you kept your whole family in a shack through the winter, but as soon as CPS took the kids, you and Joe laid up in a hotel for weeks, leaving your animals to fend for themselves while you soaked up running water, a nice bed, and fast food. Just start there.

    Then go on to justify how it is that you blackmail your stepson, who by your own admission has mental health issues, to “apologize, or else”. How does one do that to a child they are supposed to love, and one with mental health issues no less? A child that was literally abandoned by his father, one he has never received any support from, while his father continues on producing yet another eleven children he still does nothing to keep out of the throws of poverty.

    Maybe elaborate about all of your labeled stalkers that supposedly stalk your home and business, filming your children, and yet those videos and images have never appeared anywhere.

    Just start there.

    If you have evidence to support that feel free to post.

  6. Gayle

    And relatively little of what you post here, Nicole, is the whole truth.

  7. Emmy

    I challenge you to turn off moderation. If you want what you claim is “the truth” out there, then let every comment post, and then one by one rebut them with your side, correct info, whatever you say are the real facts.

    It’s not that hard to score higher than 56% of kids who took the test from that school. Home of the Innocents School says this on its website: “Home of the Innocents operates licensed residential facilities for abandoned, abused, neglected, and homeless children.” So he’s mediocre for a child who fits that.

    I know you want to think that your parenting methods result in a kid trying hard at a fast food job, but have you ever thought that he wants better than you and Joe have been willing to give your kids? My mother was a piece of shit herself, but she at least wanted me and my brother to have better than she had. She didn’t go to nursing school because the dad who beat and raped her and mother who literally didn’t care about the child she tried to abort were such stellar parents. She knew her way out, and that’s what Jacob is doing.

    You had audio posted at one point where you were screaming at a sheriff to shoot you while he remained remarkably calm. How is he the aggressor?

    Like Megan, I also read what you said about Alex as a threat. He either grovels or, at your convenience, you will try to destroy his life. If Joe has not paid child support, then he did abandon Alex.

    Are you threatening your step son into apologising by saying you’ll disclose private information about him if he doesn’t?
