Kassie Meyer is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. She’s mild, meek and humble and is wise beyond her years. She’s been through a lot, living through the harsh demands of the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society while battling clinical depression at the same time. Listen to her story, be encouraged and learn how she is loving life after Watchtower.
Joy Grant talks about her struggles as a Jehovah’s Witness woman and how despite all of her accomplishments, it took her many years to gain self esteem after leaving the organization. She had the opportunity to have an up close view of Watchtower leadership being married to an elder at age 18 and invited to join the Bethel family at 20. Joy shares a wealth of knowledge in observing the Watchtower through her own personal experiences throughout the years and being a victim of their many broken promises. She witnessed her parents and a host of other friends suffering from decisions made based on the Watchtower’s failed predictions.
Although we no longer associate with past Jehovah’s Witnesses, we realize that we really do not miss them. Mainly, because our friendship was built on our acceptance of Watchtower teachings. Most of the “friends” as we used to call them, really did not have any conversation other than what they read in the magazines and publications. And everyone always tried to out talk the other as they ascribed to how spiritual and loyal they were to the organization.
Most of the people we associated with do not know we left because we no longer believe. It provides us with an opportunity to get them to thinking about the organization without them realizing it.
Having this attitude is what actually helped us to get our parents out of the organization. It was very difficult at first to convince my mother and we went through a lot of silent moments and many weeks of not speaking, but eventually we were able to help her to see the light.
