Hello and welcome CTR!
I'm glad you are out of the ratrace known as the WTS, and happy that you have found a religion that you are comfortable with. I raised five children and a grandson as JWs and I regret it every day. It really did a number on their heads and has affected them (and me) adversly. It is a horrid excuse for a religion.
Some words are triggers that snap an ex-JW right back in to his old life, old cages of thought. Jehovah is one of those words. Playing with the word reduces it's power.
This was beautifully expressed! I still don't use the name when praying.....and I can't bring myself to use the "substitutions" we see here either! I simply avoid it altogether.
I'm glad you found this board.....it's a great place!
