I feel blessed to have lived on a Hutterite Colony my entire life. We live in Christian community as outlined in Acts chapter 2: "And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common..."
I work in our school as an Educational Assistant. I teach German and English to students in grades K-8. In my spare time few things bring me more joy than writing. I'm grateful to be able to string some words together to create stories and poems in English, German or Hutterisch to share with others.
I've written one German children's book, 'Lindas gluecklicher Tag' and have translated a set of five Bible Story books into our Hutterisch language, with the help of a Wycliffe Bible Translator/Linguist, Dick Mueller. Most recently, I published a book, Hutterite Diaries with Herald Press and a story in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Spirit of Canada. The books are available on Amazon and HB Book Centre
