    Hello....my name is 'Joliette' ...I'm a 2nd generation African American JW's (well, actually 3rd generation) my great aunts are all Jehovah's Witnesses

    my late grandmother was not. I'm from Milwaukee, WI. I'm an aspiring writer/singer, an amatuer artist and wanna be musician. I discovered this site

    when I

    did a google search for Ray Franz and I clicked on to the forums and here I am. Well, the reason why I decided to register for this website is because

    I've been reading a lot of post and everyone on here are very logical thinkers. I only hope that people at the Kingdom Halls will really start to wake up

    and realize some things. I'm not discrediting the bible in general, but just the controling nature of the society, and them saying that there the only

    channel of communication between us and Jesus. It doesnt add up and it doesnt make sense. I read Raymond Franz's book 'Crisis of Conscience'

    I plan on reading 'In search of Christian Freedom.' His books are very insightful, and while I know that its 'his story' we all have our

    own experiences. I plan on sharing some of my experiences with you guys and my questions, and I hope the answers are insightful. We are all in t

    the struggle, and I hope that the struggle comes out in our favor.

    Welcome Joliette!

  • Joliette

    Thank you guys. I'm just getting the right groove. Trying to get comfortable in my 'seat' sort of speak lol.

    My parents got baptized in 1992. My aunties in 1968, 74, and 89. I have cousins that go to the kingdom hall also. For

    reason I'm starting to really wake up and see the organization for what it really is. And talk about hypocritical. My

    parents who are in their 40's havent woke up yet. I pray that they do in 'due time' like they tell me. They think I'm

    the one who is asleep.
