How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mom began studying when I was about 7, but I was deaf, (lost my hearing around age 3 due to antibiotics) so communication was very limited for me) - the only truth I understood was PS 83:18. My father was an alcoholic, my mother in an orphanage since toddler , adopted later in life in an abusive foster home) so they did not know how to be 'parents`. I was removed from the home because of continued sexual abuse by a family member – not my mother or father - and for being an unruly child. I was placed in a very uncaring foster home, then later a juvenile home until I was almost 18. (had regained most of my hearing by age 13)

    While in the juvenile home I was 'forced' to go to church (was told it was state law while in that facility) though I vehemently resisted going. One day the minister asked if anyone had any questions. I raised my hand and asked him why did he keep calling Jesus - God. Did not PS 83:18 say that God's name was Jehovah? Well funny thing happened. The next Sunday I was told I no longer had to go to church.

    I got pregnant almost as soon as I was released from state custody, married an abusive young man. We studied with a couple from my mom's kingdom hall, quickly got baptized, but unfortunately the truth was not in our hearts. (we were both very troubled young people) I think what I really wanted at that time was a connection with my mom. I was soon disfellowship.

    About 18 years later Jehovah so lovingly helped me to become reinstated. I can not express in words how thankful I am that Jehovah would accept me back. That was about 22 years ago. I am also thankful that even though our home life was very difficult, and communication with me very limited , my mother, with Jehovah's help, was able to inculcate in me a love for God's name.
