Kyria Abrahams grew up the most devout member of a Jehovah's Witness family, where she was taught that "Satan is very tricky" and that he could hide in old yard-sale furniture. She was married at 18, but eventually left the church, her husband, and all of her friends and family behind. She visited GRITtv to talk about her new book, I'm Perfect, You're Doomed: Tales from a Jehovah's Witness Upbringing, where she explains what it was like growing up convinced that everyone else is going to hell, and how she came to grips with not knowing everything.
