    Nine months ago, My whole world was rocked sideways and upside down!! It all started with a search on the internet about JW's and 1975. Little did I know what I was going to see when I came on here-JWN and Freeminds.org. Needless to say, I was totally devastated to learn how that the "Truth" was not really the truth.

    My family came into the Organization when I was 8 years old. I was baptised at a young age, it was all I knew. Where else was I going to go? The world was going to end, the people were evil and would be destroyed. Yeah, right...

    I investigated everything I was ever taught by the JW's. I read Crisis of Conscience. I searched every topic I could on many different sites-the UN affiiliation, the blood issue, the voting changes, college, disfellowshipping,etc... I now realize that they are not "god's earthly organization" as they claim. For a few months, I was obsessed with finding out as much as I could. I was very angry at the Society.

    Now, I am at peace with the whole thing. I'm not angry anymore. I look at my upbringing and choose to pick the good things out of it. I am not upset with my mom because she raised me and my sisters as JW's thinking it was the right way to live. I am ready to move on with my life and will raise my kids to be college educated, sports playing, christmas celebrating, positive, strong men! Can't change my past but I can make adjustments in my future and live my life to the fullest.

    I will still check out the XJWSupport websites. I wish everyone well and hope you all take advantage of what the "World" has to offer!! I am.

    Good for you. What a great attitude. You've made peace with what you were given in life and now your kids will be given a chance at a great life.

    Questioning every thing,

    You are a lover of the truth, and that is what made you research it further and you found the truth. I am just happy you have a good out look and plan to raise your children outside the Wt.

    I get so excited whenever another jw learns the truth, it gives me hope for my family.

    Best Wishes in your new life
