Raised as a JW. Mom became one after reading a book (the one before the Truth book) and was an overnight dub sensation. Dad thought it a good idea to raise the kids with religion, so he let her. Never became one himself. Sure wish now we had been given the option to have followed her OR him.. but we were just told it was the kingdom hall we were to go. Raised in northern Minnesota. Married a another dub in the circuit and was with him for 17 yrs. Divorced him and and 5 yrs later married a brother from Africa who defauded me for a green card.. so I walkd away from him (the elders were not approving) and in turn the WTS... Now I'm out... and living HAPPILY FREE in California
