In this podcast, Chef Nelly speaks about her life growing up as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and the difficulty she had fitting in to the congregation. Being home schooled, beginning with the fourth grade meant being isolated from her peers in a public school setting. Also, being that there were not many kids her age at the Kingdom Hall, made it most difficult for her to thrive socially.
Although she realizes that she does not want to return to the Kingdom Hall, she’s still learning the truth about this religion. Because Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught to never place any blame on the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society, it takes time for individuals to learn that the organization has everything to do with most decisions they make which has a lasting effect on their lives.
Nelly, however, hopes that her life experience growing up as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses will touch the lives of others to help them to begin thinking about the choices they are making when it comes to your future.
