Welcome to my website where I talk about my journey to become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

I started studying with the Jehovah’s Witnesses in June 2013,  following a knock on my door.

About me!

Hi.  I’m JW Student*

I am a 48-year-old guy, born in the UK, who first came into contact with the Jehovah’s Witnesses when I was about five or six as my father was studying with the Witnesses at the time. I remember going along to a Kingdom Hall once and all I recall of that trip was seeing a clean and tidy place that had lots of seats, a stage with a rostrum and speaker, and lots of guys wearing suits. That image stuck with me for the rest of my life.  In 1994 I became a “born again Christian” and stayed with that for about 19 years.  However, there were certain beliefs that this religion had that I struggled with, such as the doctrine of hell and the trinity, which nobody was able to explain to me satisfactorily.  During these 20 years my mind kept coming back to that memory I had of my visit to the Kingdom Hall.

One day in 2011 there was a knock at my door, and an elderly man was there dressed in a suit, holding a copy of Watchtower magazine.  He explained to me that he was one of Jehovah's Witnesses.  He left me with a Watchtower and Awake magazine, which I found to be very interesting.  I continued receiving and reading those magazines every month for the next two years.  During that time I also read a lot of books, literature and websites/forums that were against Jehovah's Witnesses, as I wished to make an informed decision about where to take my interest in this particular religion.

In June 2013, I asked the Witness if I could start a home Bible study. Over the course of the next two years I had regular Bible studies with the Witness completing the two books What Does the Bible Really Teach? and, Keep Yourselves in God’s Love. I also regularly attend Sunday and mid-week meetings at my local Kingdom Hall, as well as various assemblies and conventions.  I have now completed the study period and now need to decide how next to proceed.  Normally one would strive to become an un-baptised Publisher at this stage.  However, I have one problem - I’m in the military.
