I would like to introduce myself belatedly please. I am a middle aged married female. I am an inactive Jehovah's Witness. I was active in the organization for approx. 18 years, not counting pre-baptism. I was baptized in May 1991 (remember being told to remember the date?). I was introduced to the organization via the door to door ministry. Before that first contact, I knew nothing of them. I liked the free bible study and being visited by adult humans as I was home alone with two little girls and unemployed. I was not impressed by the meetings on Sunday nor by the Book Study meeting, but when I finally attended the Theocratic school, that is what decided it for me. I have not sent a request for disassociation to the org because I concluded it is thier rule to do so which I did disassociate myself from the Congregationalist Church, because it was something I was told to do. When I did, I left the pastor a song book, because I believed "Jehovah" was a mystery to most people. Come to find out later, my mom's Bible was an old one which had God's Name spelled out, not in one or two places, but everywhere it was.
I hope to make some friends here. I am enjoying reading the posts. God bless you all. Oh, I am a Christian. I believe Jesus. I trust in no man. I am manic, some of you know already by my posts, but depression does not often hit me. I am here very often, might have something to do with being a little OC. (obsessive). I also have a blog, I am on facebook, and I train my mind on Lumosity. I collect buttons. I am happy to be here and I am happy you all are surviving some terrible ordeals.
