How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    long story but Jane Austen (Diane) from this group was my neighbor, best friend and taught me the truth, even though she was worldly at the time (she had studied before and learned it was the truth but hadn't made it her own yet). She of course progressed from that point and is still one of my very dearest and best friends today.

    Keto, IF and OMAD...

    I started keto about two weeks ago. I started for both reasons, to get healthier and to lose weight. I feel great when I don't fill up on a lot of sugar and flour. But also I want to lose about 30 lbs. I'm not strict, so I haven't really watched how many carbs, I have lost about four lbs. I'm hoping to come off my blood pressure medicine. I also believe that the more medications we take then we have to take another pill to off set those side effects. I have more energy. I plan on making it a lifestyle change.

    2019 Calendar

    May I have a copy? Thank you
  3. We too were in shock. Well I was, Some never paid attention to the announcements of the RC. I’ve always eagerly waited. We’ve decided to ride the bus this year. We’ve tried everything from splitting the three days over two weekends. (Which is not an option anymore). Driving everyday ( an hour and half drive, dealing with downtown limited parking, or parking several miles away and shuttles) staying at motels and getting an Uber/ taxi back and forth each day. Now we’re taking the bus. I’m kinda looking forward to coming home each day.

    Thank you all I had thought I heard this before and was pretty sure it wasn’t new. But I’d love to hear the talk again. After I listen to the hailstone talk again. 😀
  5. I’m looking for the talk where the brother mentioned the FDS feels that Mt 24:14 has been fulfilled. In the talk he mentioned there are only three countries where there aren’t any brothers or sisters. N Korea, Afghanistan, and Somalia. I think he was from Bethel and this might have been an Assembly or Convention. I have a four min part of it but it’s on messenger so I don’t know how to send it here so you can listen.

    Newsweek Cover

    This was an experience I had. This happened about 15 years ago. While I was working at the local police department, one of the officers and I were discussing an ongoing incident. he was re shifting all of his gear, and uniform. I said something to the effect of keep an eye on (a certain house) that's one of my friends. I then went on to describe her house. He said, "oh yea I know that house. Isn't she one of those Bible thumpers?" With a smile on my face I replied, "why yes we are!" He slowly looked up at me, and was beet red. That officer and I still work together today. He works for another town but since I now dispatch for the county, I'm still one of his dispatchers.
  7. is it ok if I have a Paradise To Do List? Not a bucket list since I don’t want to kick the bucket.
  8. Our RC and arrangement announcement was made. Usually this is made the first week of Jan if I'm remembering correctly. I'm here in New England USA area

    Not much into it either. Occasionally I'll like one.

    The Chat Room

    I've been in there a couple of times, have only spoken to someone once.
  11. Thank you all for your comments and advice. Sharon, Heather and Peggy. I too have (as the saying goes) Been there done that !!! Because of having been there more than a few times myself I do know what it feels like. I guess I might feel different if she had been studying for awhile and coming to the meetings. Regardless I wouldn't ever loan her $3,000.00 for her electric bill. She has friended several of my friends and (worldly family) on face book. I think she thought they were witnesses... She has also friended a few dozen of the friends on face book and everyday she's posting a new scripture. Either way our study for today was cancelled. She did say that she'd have it on Monday. So we'll see. John, I agree, Jehovah does provide. He knows better than we do what we need when we need it. When I have the means (I think) I am a very generous person. I also think I'm like everyone else, I don't want to be used. thank you all again for your comments.. Now my next request... I am doing a demo tonight so I will take all the prayers I can get. I get sooo nervous.
  12. Yes thank you Shawn, I have to admit that I DON'T WANT to. She is living with her brother, and her boyfriend and his cousin. They have five dogs, and 7 horses. There really isn't a reason why three of them can't be out working. I work hard, my husband work(ed) hard and I don't feel like giving it away to those who don't want to work.
  13. Thank you both so much. As you probably already guessed yes she is a study. I replied that I was still working because we can't afford for me to quit, my husband is retired and we have five children that need our help from time to time. Then she asked about the Kingdom Hall. I then replied that we do not have funds set up for contributions like this because we spend our monies on going out door to door trying to help people learn about Jehovah. So far we're still on for her study Wed. I'll keep you all posted.
