Lydia Plath breaks her silence.

On her Instagram Stories, Lydia shared a post originally shared by a blogger, @M.Is.For.Mama. The blogger was sharing her thoughts on Bill Gothard, the founder of the IBLP. She explained, “I see a push lately for lumping all Bible-believing Christian homeschoolers in with the IBLP way of thought, and that’s simply not the reality I grew up with (or see around me now) at all.”

Lydia Plath gave her a shout-out for saying everything that’s been on her mind. Then, she said that she agrees that everyone cannot be “lumped together.”

In her post, Lydia made it clear that she is not a member of the IBLP. She said, “And for all of those who have messaged or commented and asked me if I was a part of that, no I’m not. I haven’t been and won’t be.”

While she doesn’t want to be a part of the IBLP herself, she doesn’t hold this against anyone who is involved in the religious group.
