Freshman author Daniel Chamberlayne's discusses his 16 years experiences growing up as a Jehovah Witness and attending the Kingdom Hall in Hollis, Queens, New York


Background Information

Daniel Chamberlayne was raised in the middle class area of Hollis, Queens, New York by his parents Warren and Louise Chamberlayne. In September of 1974, at the young age of 7, Daniel experienced the tragic loss of his father while vacationing with his parents in Acapulco, Mexico and soon after, Daniel's mother dedicated her life to Jehovah and became a baptized Jehovah Witness. With Daniel's father now gone, Young Daniel was now indoctrinated as an associate of the Jehovah Witness by his mother and started attending the Kingdom Hall.

 Daniel tried constantly to cope with the loss of his father by embracing the teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses.Of the many lessons learned, the one most favored was a prophecy of Armageddon arriving in 1975 and all who had perished would return.Daniel would wait patiently only to realize there would be no 8th birthday cake, no return of his father, and no answers.

Nevertheless, Daniel honored his mother and participated in all the activities of the Kingdom Hall throughout his childhood till his early twenties. Stifled by the organizational rules and a great price to pay for anyone breaking them, Daniel began to live a double life. 

He continued on attending the kingdom Hall as instructed by his mother and on September 4, 1988, by no choice of his, Daniel had gotten baptized as a member of the Jehovah Witnesses.

18 months later in the early months of 1990, while being  confronted by the Elders, Daniel's name was publicly read out at the congregation he had been attending for over 15 years that he was now "disfellowshipped" and no longer recognized as a Jehovah Witness.

18 years later, Daniel has lived in New York, New Mexico and is currently living in Atlanta, Georgia with his beautiful wife Kim and their son, Daniel.
