For years I thought it was a bad dream and I was the only anti-dub.Guess not.

    Flowers-tropical-basket Welcome Shannon.

    I am a floral designer and I thought you'd like a basket of tropicals.

    We all can relate to your story. It is a "man's world" in the organization. A lot of the men lord it over their wives. They like that submissive part!!

    What is your major in college? Congratulations w/the 4.0 and being on the Dean's List. Quite an accomplishment.

    Hope you'll continue to benefit and enjoy your time with us on the "Board".

    Juni :)

    Welcome Shannon!

    Another woman who couldn't cope with being supressed by the WTBTS! Such a common story. But you've proved to yourself ultimately that you have something to offer and got out there and done it!

    I know what you mean about being hesitant to post on boards such as this initially as well. But you will find that it is a place of healing...

    P.S. Are you using Mozilla Firefox or a Macintosh by any chance? If so when writing your posts you need to check the Automatic Cr/Lf box so that your paragraph spaces will appear...

    To which I replied, "Well gee honey, you and the other brothers get together a few times a week playing in your 'Witness Band' spending money on musical instruments, and your time could be spent doing the same things.....WTF???" The answer was "I am the head of this household and the foremost authority on its spiritual needs and my answer is NO".... Well... that was my moment. I told my husband....we're done.

    Most excellent. Like a scene from a movie.
