Gloria – An Fifth Generation Jehovah’s Witness Leaves

Gloria's Horse PhotographyGLORIA – A 5th Generation Jehovah’s Witness Leaves the Watchtower

She was a fifth generation Jehovah’s Witness. Her history with the Watchtower goes back over 100 years to the time of her great grandmother. Her family followed the teaching of Russell and became special pioneers, putting in 150 hours a month in door to door ministry, traveling from town to town in the Midwest and showing his photodrama of creation. Gloria did not leave the Watchtower because she found out the organization was wrong. She left because she was looking for the REAL Jesus.

Trish – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

trish.:TRISH V

Born and raised Jehovah’s Witness for 42 years, she experienced first-hand the hypocrisy that exists in the legalistic environment of the Watchtower organization. After suffering years of abuse in her Jehovah’s Witness marriage and failing to live up to every expectation of the Watchtower, Trish divorced her JW husband, telling him that he could have custody of the religion, and she was keeping the kids! Living in limbo with no religious affiliation to claim, God in His mercy and grace opened Trish’s eyes to the Truth of Who Jesus really is! Surrendering all to Him, she found the peace and joy she had been looking for all her life, and He even blessed her with a gentle and loving Christian husband to care for her.

Tammie – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

tammie.: TAMMIE – Former Jehovah’s Witness Pioneer

Raised by Jehovah’s Witness parents (her father an elder), Tammie was confident she was in the only true religion. Pioneering in her 30’s (spending at least 90 hours per month), she reported an average of 10 “Bible studies” and placed 100’s of Watchtower magazines and books monthly. As a skilled debator, Tammie gave frequent “talks” and “demonstrations” at Theocratic Ministry School from age 7. She was considered the model “Witness” by her family and friends, until the conditional love she had embraced failed and everything in her life fell apart. Only in Christ, did Tammie find what she had been looking for. Continue reading “Tammie – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness”

Stephen – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

stephen .:STEPHEN

Born and raised Jehovah’s Witness, Stephen was tired of being “different” from the rest of the kids at school. Acting out at school and rebelling at home, Stephen was kicked out of the house and disfellowshipped from the Kingdom Hall at 18 years of age. Losing his Jehovah’s Witness family, he turned to drugs, sex and alcohol, had 2 children out of wedlock, one dying from SIDS before he was 21 years of age. Divorced and remarried at 25, Stephen was reinstated as a Witness, but continued to engage in sinful behavior behind the “Brothers’” backs. Life was a mess and he knew he needed God in his life, so he turned to Jesus Christ and found unexplainable joy and peace!

Julie – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

.:THE TESTIMONY OF JULIE – Offers Support to Former Jehovah’s Witnesses

As a convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Julie believed she had found “the Truth,” but when she was mocked for reporting a “wolf” in sheep’s clothing in the congregation and told that “those verses” about wolves were “only for first century” Christians, not for Jehovah’s Organization today, she knew something was desperately wrong! At that instance when Julie saw the way elders are trained to cover-up their failures to make the organization look good, her faith in the Society was broken. She was “disfellowshipped” for “apostasy” when she refused to trust the organization over Jesus as her ONLY mediator, and today, Julie is freely serving the REAL Jehovah God in joy and truth!

.:THE TESTIMONY OF JASON – How God Rescued Me and My Family

The Watchtower theology of living forever on earth was most appealing to Jason. He and his wife Jenny were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1994 and proceeded to raise their four children in the strict treadmill of Watchtower activity. Witnessing many injustices meted out by the elders upon congregation members, Jason and Jenny began to see the absolute control the organization has over its members. In the midst of the pressure, Jason pondered Jesus’ words at Matthew 11:28 and asked, “What is wrong with me? I don’t feel this refreshment that Jesus promised.” Seeking answers, they turned to the Bible and the testimonies of Ex-Witnesses. Finding true freedom in Christ, Jason, Jenny and their four children are now free at last!

I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, but I never felt like I fit in at the Kingdom Hall. In 2008, as I was in the process of working to gain acceptance by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, my brother and sister who had left Jehovah’s Witnesses before me, began to reach out to me in love, using the resources on this website. I soon gave my life to Christ and was then able to lead my wife Kaci to Christ as well. Now my walk with Jesus is so great. I love my Savior!

.: ANNE MARIE – Disfellowshipped but Saved by Jehovah!

You might have seen her in the Kingdom Hall. You know that young, pretty sister with “all those kids.” The one who struggled to raise her children “in the truth” alone. The one who was rarely considered as “wife material” because she was “damaged goods.” Disfellowshipped for being raped, Anne Marie finally felt free… How could this be? Had she not been taught since age five that the Watchtower organization was “the Truth”? Finally, she found the real truth behind “the truth” and found joy in Christ that she had longed for all her life.

Serving the Watchtower organization for over 20 years before Christ opened her eyes, she now has a heart to help others on their way out. Continue reading “Carlene – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness”

Betty – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

betty.:THE TESTIMONY OF BETTY – Shunned for asking questions, Betty left the Watchtower for Jesus

Hungry for spiritual answers when the Jehovah’s Witnesses in her extended family convinced her that they had “the Truth,” she studied for four years and was baptized. Once inside the organization, she began to feel unloved and unaccepted. Why? Was it because she found inconsistencies in the Jehovah’s Witness doctrine and had questions the elders couldn’t answer? Why was everyone ignoring and shunning her? Lost, hurt, lonely and confused, she struggled, “Where do I go? There is no other place for me to go!” Serving God alone was NOT an option! Finally, Betty turned to Jehovah and asked Him where He wanted her to go. It was then, with the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the help of loving Christian friends, that Jehovah led her to the real TRUTH – Jesus Himself.

Tressa – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

tressa.:TRESSA – Disfellowshipped for divorcing her abusive Jehovah’s Witness husband

Tressa worked hard to be reinstated but God intervened with His Truth. Growing up in a Catholic home, all Tressa wanted was for someone to teach her the Bible. So, when Jehovah’s Witnesses knocked on her door, she thought it an answer to her prayers and raised her five children in the organization. Disfellowshipped for divorcing her abusive husband, Tressa was working hard to be reinstated when Jesus found her!
