Overview

Growing up within the strictest order of the Amish community, Dena Hershberger struggled with all the rules and secrets. At six years old, she told her mother she was too tired to live anymore. Questions swirled in her young mind about why others had things that she did not and if life truly had a purpose. But her questions didn’t always have answers and her spirit remained unsettled.

In her first book, Dena describes in detail her journey through childhood and what it was like living in an Amish home. She tells about the customs and traditions as well as the rules and restrictions she lived under as she grew into a young woman and managed the heartaches and triumphs of life.

From a young age, Dena recognized that God plays a part in our lives. Little did she know how big a part he would play in hers. Life changed forever the day Dena and her husband decided to follow their hearts, leave behind the only lifestyle they knew, and be shunned by family and friends.

DENA SCHROCK was born into the Swartzentruber Amish community. When she was 23, Dena and her husband Joe left the Amish culture to raise their own family. Joe and Dena have been married for 18 years and have four children. Dena’s passion is to share her journey with the world and inspire others who have chosen to leave everything behind to follow God’s calling.
