I hope this book helps clear up the general population’s misconceptions and confusion about the Amish. I have read or heard things that aren’t true, or even near the whole truth. This... More > book is not written to harm anyone, but to provide information so that others might better understand how to help Amish people. There will be things written that don't apply to every community, but it’s very real and true in the communities I lived in.
I was born from generations of Amish and, at age 51, I did the unthinkable. I left everything I had ever known. That would've been impossible to do with all the shunning. If it hadn't been for my precious Jesus, I would have never found the strength to leave all that I’d ever known.
Now it is my heart’s sincere desire that everybody come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and experience the joy of salvation, and that includes my loved ones, the Amish.< Less
