Welcome to IndoctriNation: A weekly podcast covering cults, manipulators, and protecting yourself from systems of control.


No Match For A Mother's Love w/ Cyndy Rudd - S5E4pt1

Today’s guest is Cyndy Rudd. She works as a receptionist and says she is best described as an “ordinary person with an extraordinary story”. Eleven years ago she found herself in a crisis...needing to get herself and her family away from a severely abusive, controlling church.

Cyndy's children were convinced to stay with the pastor to avoid college and eventually straying away from the church. Though he was skillful in lies and manipulations the pastor came to learn that he was no match for a mother's love! Please listen and be inspired by a mother who was willing to break her own heart to free herself and her children.

Hear the inside story from her daughter, Sarabeth, in part 2:

Stay tuned, Before You Go: You may not always have the option to look around you and find strength, but you have to keep up persistent hope. Rachel recognizes Cyndy and all who have tried to save their children or loved ones from destructive people despite being made into the villain.
