Just reading your book has helped soothe some of my own lingering stings from life and made me feel more a part of a special fellowship. Your book is a blessing. I guess I will go read it again!

I couldn’t put down a Midwife in Amish Country by Kim Woodard Osterholzer. This book was more than just a book about a wonderful woman and her journey into midwifery. This book was a journey about a godly woman who surrendered her life to her Heavenly Father as she discovered who she was. This book was about a woman who cared more about living life as a godly wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend than having her way. This book taught me about love, marriage, motherhood, working with excellence while forgiving oneself for imperfections, serving in one’s church, serving in one’s community, etc. This book was rich with history, but the overall theme was one of living a life of servanthood to a Heavenly Father who loves unconditionally. This book is one to be read in one sitting; although with my schedule it took a week. The book is battered from being carried everywhere so I could slip moments of reading in throughout my day. This book is one I will ponder for weeks and months to come. It’s a book that will stay with the reader long after the last page is closed. I cannot wait for the next volume. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book, but was not obligated to write a review. All opinions are mine.

In A Midwife in Amish Country: Celebrating God's Gift of Life, author Kim Woodard-Osterholzer invites you into people's homes and bedrooms with grace, humility, and respect for a culture that can be shocking and different to her own. Her story blends an honest truth, a deep faith, and a kind vulnerability that welcomes you into her joys and struggles, first as a human and then as a midwife. Her story is one of inspiration, coming of age and into calling that details the balancing act of womanhood and motherhood and the ways in which community, support, and synchronicity propelled her journey. Kim's deep faith is woven throughout the pages. As much as this novel is a story of midwifery and what it is to serve the Amish, it is a story of her growth and experience as a person. Much of the theme is an illustration of her relationship with God as the winds of change guide her destiny and enable her to fulfill her purpose. As a woman who doesn't share her faith, I do not find her professions of faith to be imposing or directed; Instead, it is her personal testament to the celebration of all that she loves (God, family, women and of course BABIES!!!). Her struggles are vulnerable. Her language is ripe, gentle and welcoming. It does not boast and is not over-complicated. Reading this Advance Reader Copy from the publisher, was like having Kim Woodard-Osterholzer sitting across from me as I drink coffee and marvel at her love of those whom she serves and her effervescent joy in sharing it. For anyone with a curiosity in the Amish, in the love of birth and the pursuit of calling, this novel is exactly the one you need to read.
