    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteI'm back to one of my major 2018 reading goals to read a bunch from Alaska and Canada You can't read the prairies of Canada without reading about the Hutterites I read three books from their own voices two of which I got from a Canadian reading friend who grew up on the prairies too The other two books are Born Hutterite Stories by Samuel Hofer and Hutterite Diaries Wisdom from My Prairie CommunityThis book had the best writing of the three Mary Ann starts with her grandparents' story continues with her parents' love story and her father's family's contentious history with another Hutterite c

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteI'm waffling a bit on the rating I've given this one like a 35 but parts of it had 5 star uality Very interesting reading about the Hutterites who though I've seen them at times shopping and driven by their large farms I knew virtually nothing about As with a number of different European groups who pulled away from Catholicism in the 1500's when Protestantism was rising with the likes of Martin Luther and w

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteThis was a wonderfully rich read with lots of honest gritty details about the author's childhood living in a Hutterite colony replete with descriptions of the food the constant companionship of the fellow Hutterite families most of which were large with 7 kids each the banter and teasing the uniue clothing and the prayer meetings and leadership Kirkby describes a happy childhood where there is always an abundance of food and an abundance of things to do There

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteThis is book is very special to me I love what Mary Ann Kirby says in this book 'for it is only when we embrace our past that we can find true fulfillment in our future' p228 Her statement spells out the reason for my own search for my family's beginningsMary Ann was invited by a friend to write a magazine article about Hutterite gardens But it turned into a journey into past starting with her Hutterite beginnings Her family lived in a Hutterite colony in southern Manitoba Canada Hutterites were one of three groups that sprang from the Anabaptists the Amish Hutterites and Mennonites I enjoyed her journey sometimes troubled sometimes joyful so much She lived the Hutterite life but by reflection she learned so much It is my hope to trace my Mennonites ancestors and learn their way of life so I can better understand my ance

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteInteresting yet somehow lackingI admit I was interested in learning about the Hutterite people and their way of life This book is written by a woman who was raised as a Hutterite until her parents left the community when she was 10 years old Then we learn of her struggles to fit into the English world where even things as simple a

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteSuper interesting memoir especially for people from the prairies who see Hutterites all the time yet know nothing about them This memoir helps to alleviate the general ignorance and mine in particular about the everyday lives and spiritual beliefs of this communal society Although I could never live this way I now understand the appeal for many of those who do My thanks go to the author for her honest portrayal of her family and community

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteI was interested in reading this memoir because I remember seeing Hutterites all the time growing up in Montana In their old fashioned clothes they were very noticable at Target or the supermarket They were viewed as other and we kids heard suspicious and mostly improbable things about the way they lived and what they were like I was hoping this memoir would unravel some of those childhood bigotries and paint a real picture of the Hutterite lifestyle and religionInstead Kirkby writes a series of memories and anecdotes that are sweet but don't seem particularly critical or truthful Certainly as a professional journalist she cannot report on the sheer number of young people abandoning the colonies for the English world but still maintain the idea that most Hutterites are content and happy She doesn't explore the lack of education for the children

    I Am Hutterite Book ´ I Am HutteriteSo first a caveat at first glance this is totally a chick book I started reading it because well it was free see the legal jargon below and I am a fan of book books and freeness The blurb on the back cover and the various promotions given make it seem as if the book is about a young girl's struggle to fit in to English society after leaving a Hutterite colony in CanadaHowever that was not the case at all The book is instead mostly a narrative of life as a Hutterite Of the 235 pages of the book roughly the last hundred deal with life off of the colony and most of those are recollections of Hutterite life So a much accurate wa
