    [email protected], I think it is real progress. We've had rough times with this thing off and on, and recently it finally felt like we're getting through it. I know there will be a whole slew of issues once we have kids, but at least we've been married long enough (going on 6 years) and through this to establish a heavier sense of commitment and shared fortitude. Also, I have secret hopes that she will eventually leave the JWs for being a more true Christian. She sure makes more references to Jesus and the Bible than the "faithful slave" and the organization....

    I just finished reading your story in its entirety. Fascinating......absorbing.....well written....

    Thank you for sharing. Your zeal for God cannot go unnoticed. I also was a JW because I truly-from the heart-wanted to serve God, and thought that was what I was doing.

    excellent story, dp. I didn't read it before now but saw the chapters. it did not disappoint. ... you mentioned your wife asking how she is perceived. I have to say I was skeptical through the story but she showed admirable dedication to you and deep commitment. I hope she continues to love and support you despite any religious differences you may have. -- not feeling it
