When I set out on this journey and went online, I was afraid I would get laughed at. After all, aren’t Jehovah’s Witnesses those weirdos that knock on your door?
Well, my experience has been entirely contrary.
I have had people write to me anonymously to ask advice on how to leave! I am not an expert on this, of course. It is not an easy thing to do. It will involve losing your family, no doubt. And this guy had a little girl he didn’t want risk losing.
I have other people send me gifts and welcome me, as they too have left the Jehovah’s Witnesses and they have reached out to me to connect.
I have had people try to get them to help them unwitness some Witnesses. That is a very hard task.
I received a beautiful phone call from a friend. He left a message saying he wanted to “talk to me about my writing style.” After some chit-chat, I asked him, what recommendation he had for me. “What should I do to improve?” His response shocked me, “Nothing at all, I am just ringing to tell you your writing style is so innocent, so compelling. I want to read more!”
I have many followers on Twitter and Facebook and Instagram who are happy to share my story. I am so glad.
The book has almost been finished, to send to a publisher. I am putting last minute touches on it.
I want to thank everyone for their kindness. It has been overwhelming.
