If you’ve left your church and have lost family or friends as a result of shunning or disconnection then you know how painful and emotionally trying it is to understand it and figure a way around it. It’s a process that can take years!
I have a sneak peek preview of Nancy Sage’s new book, Going Undercover to Rescue My Daughter from the Cult of Jehovah Witnesses 2nd edition. She was kind enough to talk to me about her life in the Jehovah Witnesses. Nancy takes the word ”undercover” to a whole new level when she decides to go back “In” Jehovah Witnesses to save her daughter. After ten years of being out of the Watchtower and shunned by her daughter and all members, she prepared herself mentally and emotionally to go back to the mindset of a true believer and convince her church and most importantly her daughter that she was sincere. Without even reading her new book I can tell it’s a story that inspires the true meaning of family and love.
It was horrifying for my husband and I that his oldest daughter, my step-daughter, disconnected from us after we were ex-communicated from the Church of Scientology. It was a very trying time and thankfully it didn’t take years to find a way to get through to her. I believe many people who are “inactive” in these “religious cults / churches” are in some ways very wise for staying “under the radar”. You have to decide what’s right for you. Everyones situation is different and we’ve all made decisions that we now live with, but it’s something to consider if you are one of those who are currently “under the radar” and looking at all your options. Being strategic, educating yourself and formulating a plan before you take the jump takes far less effort than trying to re-connect with a loved one who has shunned you.
We are focusing on Solutions here at Truth Rundown so when I interviewed Nancy I asked her specific questions about her strategy and the tactics she used to help her daughter start “thinking for herself” again. Nancy shares detailed strategies in this interview. Keep a look out for that coming soon – I need to do some editing on the audio file first.
Nancy’s New book – “Going Undercover to Rescue My Daughter from the Cult of Jehovah Witness” 2nd Edition - is due to be released at the end of October. The book is twice the size of her first edition with a lot more detailed information. Nancy’s website is www.nancyjsage.com . I will update you with another blog post when her book has actually been released. I’m excited to read it!
