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. 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.

    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/
  6. 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?
  8. A lot of updates this month for iOS. It seems the brothers are dialing in the solutions to the glitches we’ve been having.

    All I know about tags I learned from ripping them off my shirts and mattresses.

    Who is the biggest HAM on the forum?

    What can I say, I took a shot. I know a handful of Brothers whose brains I have already picked. Including this smart Brother WD0JEA ( https://www.isotronantennas.com/ ) . I was just casting a wider net. And seeing how many possible Brothers I would have to chat with.

    I see adding the tags was not enough. Next time I will shoot for a longer title.
  13. I have been thinking more seriously about getting into amateur radio and am looking for some of my Brothers and Sisters who can give me some advice on how to best get started. I know you are all out there so join the conversation and give me some of your wisdom.
  14. Zechariah 8:23 - "This is what Jehovah of armies has said 'It will be in those days that ten men out of all the languages of the nations will take hold, yes, they will actually take hold of the skirt of a man who is a Jew saying:"We will go with you people, for we have heard [that] God is with you people"" This was my first bible reading in the congregation, over 30 years ago. That sentence is burned in my memory and pops into my head at random times, even today.
