Growing Up Amish


Professional Reviews

Joan Sosalla, Whitehall WI
A captivating story of real life in the Amish Community and how the determination of a young woman who knew that life outside the walls of the Community would be a better life - one she was going to have no matter how hard the struggles would be.

This book is a gripping account of eality too harsh to bare, yet a fascinating look at the culture and an easy read. I couldn’t put the book down until finishing it and am looking forward to her next book.

Penny Paulson, Blair WI
In the time that I have known Anna, one thing has become very clear: her deep commitment to learning, growing, and being the best she can be in all that she does. In this book, Insider Secrets
of Growing up Amish, Anna is inspiring and empowering others to follow her lead to be the best they can be!

Anna came into our (my husband, 3 children and I) lives in 1991, after she left a timid but friendly message on our answering machine, in response to our ad in the classifieds looking for a
baby sitter in our home. We jumped on the opportunity to have someone stay at our house to help care for our children. Anna was a 23 years-old-adult when we went to meet her at her parent’s
place. Still I think she did a lot of growing up after we met.

Her journey before and after leaving the Amish culture has me in awe to this day. Insider Secrets of Growing up Amish provides a detailed depiction of Anna’s early years. You may get the feeling
that parts of her journey was rather simple but don’t let her fool you.
She worked very hard and she had to overcome many obstacles and emotional feelings to move forward. Even though there were many bumps in the road for Anna, her determination was big enough to always find a way to keep moving onward and upward. As you read through various chapters of Anna’s young life; you will see that she shares tools that she was able to believe in, found helpful, and even healing, after years of struggling.

What Anna reveals in Insider Secrets of Growing up Amish is deeply personal and I am touched to have known her for sixteen plus years and to have played a role in her journey. For Anna to share at this level is so opposite from how she was taught so I am amazed at the
growth that she has gone through. Anna was a young adult when we first met and I couldn’t be more proud if she were my own child. She is an incredible adult…with a great family and career
to be proud of.

Now to top it all off, she is willing to share her own experiences and/or mistakes to help others. I enjoyed Insider Secrets of Growing up Amish entirely! When I started reading I couldn’t stop until I got to the end of the book. I am looking forward to her next book for more details about her unbelievable journey. Anna has so much
for you to learn from so I would suggest you get your hands on everything that Anna allows you.
