How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My grandparents learned the truth in the 1920's. My father taught my mother, and she was baptized in the 1960's. I grew up around the truth, although sadly, none of my other sisters ever progressed.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Reading (of course!) Singing, swimming...but most of my time it seems is spent in secular work...or "making bricks for Pharoah" as one CO's wife remarked. How true.

    Goals: to memorize more scriptures
  • My favorite books
    I don't have as much time to read anything but spiritual material these days, but I enjoyed the Foundation series by Asimov...anything science fiction, really. REAL science fiction, not fantasy or magic themes. Also, dystopian plots fascinate me.
  • My favorite music
    Josh Groban, Celine Dion. Hip Hop, soft jazz, Beach Boys, Big Band, Dean Martin!
  • My favorite movies
    "Click" "Pride and Prejudice" Star Trek and Stargate television shows.
  • My favorite quotes
    "Be excellent to each other"

    Rudyard Kipling's Poem: "If"

    Favorite Bible scripture: Proverbs 28:5--those who are seeking Jehovah can understand EVERYTHING......

  1. We had our new CO and his wife last week. I'm not sure where they served last; perhaps someone here had them? Daniel and Brandy Wiggins? Our last CO was Lakes Ismailidis. Does anyone here have him? And I'm still missing our CO from before THAT-- Steve Elambaugh and his wife Lisa. He was AMAZING!!!
  2. There is a note by the author at the bottom of the book description. It says the books are inspired by the beliefs and teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses, but I am not affiliated with the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. But, you ARE a brother, right?
  3. Oh, my! These Timbits look like cinnabons! If so, they are heavenly!
  4. That's what I thought, too! Our brothers and sisters in Suva, Fiji, will have their Memorial at 6:30 Pm. Or, 1:30 AM in our time zone (central U.S). TWO HOURS from now! Does anyone have theirs sooner?
  5. Perhaps some of the local brothers and sisters might know if this was a Witness involved?
  6. I just saw this in the newsfeed. Do we know if it's one of our young brothers or sisters?
  7. I like your profile picture, it's nice to see you..

      Yes, I really need to get that picture updated. I tried to photoshop the dinosaurs out, but it wasn't easy.

  8. Well, one day soon we will lose the remaining ones .....all at the same time!
  9. Well, if the home listeners can't comment, then talking about the meeting might be great for interaction JUST among those who are at home. Great way for at least a little fellowship anyway. As long as they don't get carried away with their commenting and stop listening to the actual Kingdom Hall meeting.
  10. BOARD is an online software developed exclusively for Kingdom Halls of Jehovah's Witneses. It aims to replace a regular information board with an interactive platform. Each brother can upload the scheduled, letters and other announcements at home, and everything will be synchronized and available at a TV on the Kingdom Hall. This software is compatible with most modern operative systems. https://dev.khboard.com/home
  11. I think that's what we use, too. It's around $30 each month, and I think it limits the number of call-ins.
  12. Has anyone here ever tied in for a meeting and then something funny happened? I'd love to hear your experiences. I'll start. A couple of years ago, my daughter and I were on our way back to Oklahoma from Colorado. We were in Kansas when my daughter says, " our meeting is starting in a few minutes, I think I'll tie us in." We'd reached the Watchtower portion when the conducting brother announced that they'd fixed the phones so that the ones listening in could make comments. He then told us that a brother Richard had a comment. We heard Richard make his comment, and then, heard the conducting brother say that they were having audio problems and couldn't hear the brother. They waited a couple of moments, and then called on someone in the audience. We heard Richard say: Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Well, of course, WE could. In frustration, Richard says, well, shoot, they can't hear me. And then he hung up. We later mentioned to him that we heard his comments. We also mentioned to the conducting brother that we could hear it all. It just seemed a little humorous at the time.
  13. What does your congregation use to tie in others for the meetings? A private line? Uber conferencing?
  14. Maybe they are in the witness protection program. No pun intended. I’ve heard it’s happened (but only once that I know of), one of our sisters was related to a mafia family and had to change her name and move away. Not really government related.....so not the REAL wpp
  15. I just read this post. Has anyone heard from the family?
