As an awakened Jehovah's Witness, I've been on a difficult journey for years now trying to back away from that organization and hang on to my own faith while sorting out sound doctrine. I'm hoping this will serve basically as networking for former witnesses, and other perhaps "biblical unitarians," who have held on to their faith an are looking for faith strengthening networking, association, and conversation.

I'm a family man with a wife, kids, job, thoughts, and feelings of my own. 3rd gen JW. Climbed the ranks from childhood to elder. All family had intensive JW life with highlighters bought in bulk @ Costco to accommodate all the studying and meeting prep we did. On the platform weekly right up to stepping down and fading. Feel very fortunate to have my family all fade together. Currently navigating the life of being distanced by most JW 'friends' and shunned by JW family even though none of us have D/A or spread 'apostate' views.
Third Generation JW, Born & Raised in "The Truth" with the name of one of THE biggest shames of the organization. I always wondered what possessed my grandparents and parents to think it was a great name to give their daughter born in 1985, 10 years after the delusion. Walking with Jesus has been an experience, and far from the walk professed by the JW publishers who "Lord it over" every aspect of your JW life. I speak up because so much pain, hurt, depression and downright crappy decision will be influenced heavily by the JW, whole lives changed and your identity stolen if you agree to follow them blindly.
