My neighbor is JW, she is non practicing... she was raised in Montana as one... she married moved to MI and had kids. Now her dh is deployed, her MIL is living with her and what I have been told is treating her MIL (whom is being treated for colon cancer) horribly and then will call her mother in Montana and say that she is still a sworn practicing JW and the children are being raised one... They are not and her dh is Lutheran and so is her MIL... non practicing, but has faith.
Now with that being said... ? is this... why do you think she would lie to her mother about her religious practice? Now I have read (not ALL) that some branches of JW require you to disown a family member(s) if they are not JW or leave the church is this true?
Her dh is coming home in a few weeks for good... he is walking into a big mess that he is going to have to clean up...
Can you plz give some insight on the religion?

I'm not JW so this is purely speculation, some parents are very domineering and perhaps this woman is afraid (maybe subconsciously) of her mother?
And I also wanted to commend you for taking this lady to chemo. (((((hugs)))))) and WAY TO GO!
