    During your journey out of the JWs what were your most difficult moments (if there were any) that you can recall? And how did you see them off?

    I'm trying to think. I definitely made the right decision and never looked back. I remember driving home early from a meeting (just got up in the middle and left), rolling down my window, breathing the fresh air of freedom and knowing I would never go back.

    Now, I did worry what my daughter would think. How would I explain how things were different now? She was 6 at the time. She told me a few months later: "Mommy, we're so much happier now that we're not Jehovah's Witnesses!"

    So, I just took it slowly. Got myself and my daughter into counseling. Took long nature walks together. It's been absolutely wonderful ever since.

    Brigid it's great that an innocent child realised the JWs were depressing your quality of life. Indeed I liked the speedy and cheeky way that you moved out of the cult.
