How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I got the truth when I was 4 years old. Although my Mother and Father were not Witnesses they sent me to a family to care for me while they worked and this family were JEHOVAH'S Witnesses. They loved me and treated me like I was one of their own I was considered number 8 of their large family. My mother didn't mind them training me in the ways of the truth because my fleshly sister who was already a Witness had introduced the truth too my mom she just didn't want to conform to it then, but my sister who was 16 at the time and me who was 4 loved JEHOVAH . At age 18 my sister went off to pioneer where the need was great and I was so happy I had the witness family to bring me along. At age 14 I was baptized. I wanted to follow in the steps of my sister and pioneer but I couldnt because I depended on my mom and she by that time was more involved in my life whereas she tried to keep me away from the Witneses family. But I'm happy to say she eventually got baptised also. Then it was her and I for the next 8 years. I'm so glad I found the truth when I was young be cause it has spared me from a lot of heart ache I have seen from others who didn't have such a solid foundation.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I love technology. You can call me a device junkie. I am a History buff.
    I Love learning about what happened before me. I guess this is why I also love the Bible so much.
  • My favorite books
    Lol well when I was a wee little girl. It was Paradise Lost To Paradise Gain.
    Now it anyone's biography. I had a strong urge to learn news casting/reporting because I love asking questions and finding answers.
    I like to know the Why's of everything.
  • My favorite music
    love jazz there is this group call Four 80 east. Their cut call Noodle Soup is my favorite.
  • My favorite quotes
    I do not watch TV. I gave that up because I was a TV addict and my brain was literally atrophying. Well maybe not that dramatic. But in these last days I have better things to do than to stare at nonsense. If anything I catch the nightly news just to keep up with what's current in my locale.

  1. My scripture is Psalms 91:1 it’s my 911 emergency number For it says “Anyone dwelling in the secret place of the Most High will lodge under the shadow of the Almighty.” Under Jehovah’s shadow of protection is where I long to be. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  3. I love how you explained the work we do in number terms. For me it enhances the scripture where it says “I planted , Apollos watered but God makes it grow.” A little water from everyone nourishes the mind and hearts of the righteously disposed ones. I see because of a combined effort we make our organization beuatifuly attractive so as to draw these ones to Jehovah. We are like an army. All hands are needed to achieve the objective. Our abjective to search out the sheep letting them know Where they can find Jehovah. I GET IT :))
  4. Thanks Brother for sharing this as we here in New England are preparing for the Boston Marathon Public Witnessing initiative. on April 16 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I was 4 years old when I started studying the Bible from the orange Paradise Lost Paradise Restored book. I was so thrilled at seeing how the the garden of Eden was so beautiful unlike the neighborhood I lived. So the earth was a big focus for me. My first scripture I remembered is the first scripture Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I woke up this morning very tired and in despair. I’ve been praying to Jehovah for strength to keep going for the last to days. This song has expressed beautifully what I have been feeling. I had been feeling like I have been holding my breath for such a long time. Hearing this song made me exhale if you will. There truly is power in Kingdom music & songs to lift our spirits. I must remember to turn on the Kingdom songs now when anxiety strikes me something I had neglected. Thanks Sis for sharing the gift of music and sing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
