Ladies that my mother would get to baby-sit my sister and me would always take us to the different churches they went to, so I had experience with many kinds of religions growing up, but my mother said she liked the structure of Jehovah's Witness for us kids and I always enjoyed it when she took us to the local Kingdom Hall for service. I remember the little gold books of Bible stories they gave out and I used to read The Watchtower magazine a lot." E.A.R.L.: The Autobiography of DMX, p. 10.
