Dear Friends, We were so touched by your warm welcome and all of your comments to my ballroom dancing post. Thank you so much for your kindness.
I have more to tell you, but I wanted to share this with you. We have a son that has been disfellowshipped for 18 years for smoking. We have not shunned him and have had him to our home yet the damage has been done. The relationship as you know is altered. When we finally figured out this was not the truth my husband called and reinstated him! He helped him understand this is not the truth and we are so sorry we raised him like we did. He had been on a path of destruction and said he felt like he was walking in a dead mans shoes. His life has turned completely around and he now has a reason to live.
Our daughter and son in law left the truth about a year before us. They bought a RV and traveled for a couple of years. Because they were away from the indoctrination they woke up.
Our middle son left years ago and has now woke up. So now we have our family put back together. What a horrible organization that rips the guts out of families. They need to go. Thanks for listening.
Next time I will tell you about the elders wheeling up in our driveway to interrogate us and the warm welcome my husband gave them. I don't think they will be back!
