More on the Witnesses

After my post yesterday it occurred to me that there may be some readers who are not familiar with Jehovah’s Witnesses and their teachings. So, if you’re interested in learning more about the craziness I can recommend a book by Kyria Abrahams. I read it about 2 years ago and found that it was pretty on point in describing the experience of growing up in that organization. The author too ended up trapped in a bad marriage needing to find a way out (I was proud of her for getting out sooner than I did) and I found many parts of her story so familiar I had to laugh out loud: “Yeah! I remember that!”.  Here’s the link to the book on Amazon: I’m Perfect,You’re Doomed: Tales from a Jehovah’s Witness Upbringing. The story is at once both humorous and heartbreaking. If you were raised as a JW, or in any other similar restrictive setting,the story will resound with you and even if not, it’s still a pretty good read. It will help you realize why so many of us out here are so jacked up! Hats off to Kyria! She also has a website and a blog at www.kyriaabrahams.com. Check it out.
