Being born as a 3rd generation JW, I was unquestionably loyal to this high-control organization. I was the prototypical small town congregation ‘Golden Child’. Starting at an early age as an Unbaptized Publisher at age 10 and Baptized at 15, I checked all the boxes, progressing from Pioneer to Ministerial Servant, and eventually an Elder at 29 years of age.

Carrying the weight of so many expectations in that life and also trying to be a good husband resulted in tremendous strains and mental stresses. Who would think one music video at a 2015 Regional Convention would result in a nearly 4-year journey of self-discovery, a revelation of the Truth about the Truth, and also with it, unimaginable heartbreak and pain?

“This story is not finished, but if it did right now, It would definitely have a happy ending. I want the same for anyone and everyone who may be on a similar journey of awakening. It is my hope that this discussion will do just that.”

      This was an amazing opportunity that Wendi afforded me the opportunity to share my story. This journey can be tough. I’m here for anyone that needs that support even if it’s just a listening ear. Thank you for listening to my story.
