What a great thing you have done compiling all those stories on a web page. I only read a couple but they really tugged at my heart and I could relate to them so well. I hope I can share my story sometime soon.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for this site. It's interesting to see posts from Freeminds, CAIC, and other places all together in one list!! This is quite valuable.

That's very useful - I think the personal accounts are very powerful and convincing to a lot of people (often the harsh treatment of others is one of the first things that start people doubting).
Reminds me that I really should do "our story" sometime soon ...
I am not done yet, but I have read the storys of people, I know, and they all matter to me, these include Dan Dystkra, Doug Checkets, Jim Penton, Randall Waters, and all others that choose to share their story.
Cool idea. Personally, I left just because I thought the elders in my hall were a bunch of jerks but still believed most (though not all) of the doctrine. What first helped me realize what a load of crap it all is was reading personal experiences. I think those really speak a lot louder than sites that just list how the JW's interpretation (I know I probably just misspelled that didn't I?) of the bible isn't right.

Its time for them to be scared of us
I've never read Farkel's experience before..wow!!!!
Hugs to everyone on that page...
