Thought I would join the forum after following the posts for a while. I used to post on Tishie's X-JW site but have not participated there for a while. Anyway, I was born into the religion...cult...borg...whatever. My parents are still devout as well as a sister. I have not set foot in a kingdom hall in at least 10 years other then for one funeral, I mean memorial service. I have enjoyed reading the posts here and getting to "know" some of the regulars and I look forward to sharing my thoughts and experiences with you.
