My Amish Story is the story of the last few years of Amish life for the Graber family in the nineteen nineties. It’s about the hurdles of breaking the barriers of centuries; of family circles being broken with no goodbyes; of heartbreak and estrangement; of the transitions and adjustments to a new way of living.

But it’s also, and more so, a story of leaving the old and embracing the new; of walking in the blessing of freedom from bondage; of leaving behind the fear of tomorrow. It’s the story of a family living, loving, and laughing their way along the journey of life.

About the Author

Rebecca Borntrager Graber was born into an Amish family of ten children. She lost her mother at the tender age of ten and later taught school in the Amish Parochial schools. She married Lester Graber, who was ordained as an Amish minister the second year they were married. Rebecca and Lester were shunned by the Amish church thirteen years later, after taking a bold stand against some extra-biblical Amish rules.

Rebecca always enjoyed writing and was a frequently published author in the Family LifeYoung Companion, and Blackboard Bulletin, which were monthly magazines published by the Amish. She has conducted many Women’s Bible Study groups in her home, taught Bible classes at a local jail, and carried on correspondence with prisoners from a variety of jails and prisons.

At present Rebecca and her husband Lester live in Fort Worth, Texas.
