Is Ruby Franke Mormon?
Recently, the former family YouTube vlogger, Ruby Franke was arrested on August 30 after being suspected of committing aggravated child abuse and having been a member of the Mormon Church or the LDS Church, which is formerly known as the Church of Jesus Christ. Reportedly, the Franke family had been among the family vloggers on YouTube who were also members of the LDS Church. However, Ruby started her channel named 8 Passengers in 2015 and documented her daily life with her husband and six kids. Furthermore, before closing the channel earlier in 2023, she co-created another channel, named, ConneXions, with Jodi Hilderbrandt, who is a therapist by profession.
