Baptized JW - 1957 - 11 yrs old
Pioneer JW - 1964
Bethelite JW - 1969
1974 - JW Mommy
Inactive JW (no field service but going to some meetings, more and more rarely - 1978 - 1983
Ex-JW 1983 (6 scale) - (but anonymous because of my inactive JW husband then)- but actively helping (typing, writing) my brother who was a "public" ex-JW. He and my father were in a full page article about JWs on the religion section in the Arizona Republic then.
Gradually an ex-JW (9 scale) inactive exJW, moving on, raising children in the real world and to be mind free and real, school, sports, emphasis toward college. My work, and finding a wonderful husband (never a JW). During this time I was able to avoid JW "radar" and never was DF'd nor DA'd.
Now I'm a "10" active ex-JW, online (Internet caused a gradual revival for me on this),, not anonymous anymore,,I write on e-news about JW Society every chance I can, I joined an ex-JW support group here in Phoenix. My sister and I (and hopefully our other 3 siblings) are just starting on writing a "booklet" about our lives as JWs and leaving that life. It will take awhile for us as we are not "writers."
