How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I was introduced to the Truth by my parents, who started studying with the Witnesses when I was just a little kid. I grew up in the Kingdom Hall. I was baptized when I was 13 and have since enjoyed the opportunity to serve Jehovah in many ways.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My favorite books
    I have always had a thirst for knowledge and aside from reading through my personal theocratic library I enjoy reading books that allow me to learn new skills.

  1. This looks like just what I need. Everywhere you go screens assault your senses. And much like the images in a recent Watchtower I like to ignore the flood of inappropriate images coming at me. I’ll be trying to get ahold of some of these. https://www.wired.com/story/irl-glasses-screen-blocking/?mbid=social_twitter

    Help

    I would recommend contacting your territory servant or COBE. I’m sure your congregation has a system in place for creating territory cards. I’d hate to see you waste effort by going down the wrong path.
  3. I like your profile photo. I have a couple of use lying around.

    Have you ever "House Sat"

    Get to know the local congregation. I know you will be at meeting. Arrange to go out in the ministry with them and perhaps meet some for some encouraging association.
  5. Had a very small iOS update ( iPhone only ) today as well. Still 10.6.2
  6. I have always been a sucker for a well designed typeface.
  7. Acording to inspecting the fonts on the page these are the fonts that you may be seeing. Depending on the available fonts in your system or device. Helvetica Neue,Roboto,Segoe UI
  8. I am type ENFJ-A according to the free test I just took. And I would say type 1 is pretty much 90% me.

    JWLibrary etc on iPad

    The Apple Pencil is definitely a luxury item. But if you have it in your means to pick one up it has really improved the speed and quality of my note-taking and personal study. I have had mine since it launched with zero problems so far. So as something that will last for years I feel it was a good investment.

    Service tote needed

    I get all of mine from this shop run by a Sister. https://www.etsy.com/shop/BelloCovers?ref=l2-shop-header-avatar Not exactly cheap but they will do custom orders and get you exactly what you want. Really high quality.

    JWLibrary etc on iPad

    1. Open an App 2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to show the Dock. 3. On the Dock touch and hold the second app that you want to open, then drag it to the screen. *If the App you want to open is not on your Dock open it separately so that it will show on the right side of the dock. Also JW Library should always be in your Dock.

    JWLibrary etc on iPad

    Not sure which iPad you have, but I have the iPad Pro that I use with an Apple Pencil. This is super effective. I use the App Goodnotes because it it allows you to search your notes. And has really great organization. I also use an anti-glare screen protector for a couple reasons ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G4SA1FG/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) 1. It is way less annoying when using my iPad at meetings, 2. When using the Apple Pencil this one in particular give a nice tactile sensation making it feel like you are writing actual paper instead of just sliding all over the place. https://www.goodnotes.com/
  13. You are totally correct on the phenomenon that causes us to perhaps be jealous of what people are doing on social media. Because in general people only show the positive things they do there. If we were to believe social media people would always be happy in love, buying new cars and going on fancy vacations. It can cause us to idealize others situations and in make us feel we are missing out. Even though we know this isn't true it doesn't do much for our selfesteem. And by putting aside distractions I think you are making the right choice. Part of building a bible trained conscience is deciding what does and does not work for us. Keep up the good work.

    Name the Rover

    Can't we just rename Mars itself? Perhaps something less violent?
