I took the time to write a letter to her, and as I was doing so, I thought this could be of help to others facing similar situations.
Below are some notes I jotted down for the letter I sent to her.
He is confident his daughter will not leave the faith, and that his son-in-law will convert.
I know of a situation just like this where a Christian husband who married a Jehovah’s Witness ended up giving up on his own church and commitment just to maintain peace in the house.
Hi everyone, I'm pretty new at this and still feel a little cautious. My dad is an Army veteran and he couldn't accept certain teachings so I grew up in a divided household. I got caught up in something I wasn't supposed to be doing and when I went to the elders and told them what was going on I decided that I didn't want to have any part in the religion what so ever.

but I want to stop hiding in the dark with what happened to me, even though i was disfellowship and lost my family and witness friends as well but I've got over it now..i still have days though when its hard though. When I was two my mom started studying and she was baptized five years later. It's a little complicated how I ended up disassociated from Jehovah's Witnesses.
If the family wants you to convert or drags you into a discussion at the wedding, don’t fall for the bait.
Simply say that these matters must be discussed at a later time.Wir verwenden Cookies, um Inhalte zu personalisieren, Werbeanzeigen maßzuschneidern und zu messen sowie die Sicherheit unserer Nutzer zu erhöhen.
