Yes, I appeared in and also researched and wrote for Watchtower publications. I'm breaking WT confidentiality rules listing my resume. However, it's time that JWs know that Witness women make many more "spiritual" contributions than they are led to believe. I left Bethel in 1993 and left the organization in 1997.
My husband and I appeared on the covers of the,
October 8, 1986 Awake!
July 22, 1992 Awake!
We also appeared in the following magazine:
May 15, 1989 Watchtower, page 10, smallest picture w/ blue frame
I appeared in costume in the following books:
One picture that is in, REVELATION--ITS GRAND CLIMAX AT HAND
Five pictures that can be found in, THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED
I was assigned to be the major research assistant to senior Watchtower writer, Karl Adams, for the book,
JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES, PROCLAIMERS OF GOD'S KINGDOM
I did all the research and contributed text for the 1992 Sunday afternoon District Assembly public lecture assigned to writer, Harry Peloyan, by Ted Jaracz. The subject was on John 1:1 discussing, Jesus, the "light" of the world. I sat in the audience at a convention in Virginia listening to my husband give the lecture and wondered what the elders in the audience would think if they knew that a woman put together practically the entire lecture.
I did all the research for,
October 22, 1995 Awake! article, "Why Is Life So Short?"
I did most of the research, plus, assisted the senior writer, Eric Beveridge, and was quoted many times in the article,
June 22, 1990 Awake! "Women Deserving of Respect"
I did all of the research for Awake! Editor and senior writer, Harry Peloyan, for the booklet,
"What Is The Purpose Of Life? How Can You Find It?"
I helped Sam Buck write some of the following article,
Apr 22, 1989 Awake!"More Living Space For A Growing Family"
I rewrote the following article submitted by a branch writer in Ireland,
October 8, 1991 Awake! "Heeding the Warning Signs"
Under the title of the following article can be found a statement that the article was contributed by an Awake! correspondent in Africa. However, I wrote the majority of the article and then it was sent to a missionary at an African branch for review. When he sent it back, it could then be said to be contributed by an Awake! correspondent in Africa.
April 8, 1993 Awake! Millions Are Suffering, Can They Be Helped?
I wrote all of the following articles,
December 8, 1991 Awake! "The Bill of Rights, Why Was It Needed"
Dec. 8, 1991 Awake! "Students Participate in National History Day"
Nov. 22, 1994 Awake! Cover Series Articles, "Difficult Children"
I was assigned and did extensive research on the neurological bipolar (manic-depressive) condition and submitted it to Awake! Editor, Harry Peloyan. The material was never used because it was decided by Writing Department Overseer, Lloyd Barry, that an article on this subject could open another "Pandora's Box" such as the October 8, 1991 Awake! cover series articles, which discussed sexual child abuse, did. By the way, I did not write nor do any research for the Oct. 8, 1991 articles.
I continued to research and submit my findings on sexual child abuse to the Writing Department until I slipped away from the organization in 1997.
