Growing Up Amish... A Memoir

By Ira Wagler.  

 This is Ira's story of growing up and how he endeavors to fit into the Old Order Amish community.   There is heartache and heartbreak through out as he figures out his way to God.  In the end there is peace in his heart.  

For some reason I did not realize this book is an autobiography when I started reading it.  As I was reading I was drawn to wonder and feel for his momma.  I can not imagine not being able to see my child.  I am glad for Ira that he was able to see in the end that God is loving and merciful and not available thru the laws that man set, but in direct relationship.  This book helps one see that there are all kinds of pain out there and that loving people thru the love that God gives us is crucial.

 I want to thank Tyndale House Publishers for my complimentary e-read of this book for review purposes.
