Amish Latter-day Saints: A Journey of Discovery

When three devout Amish families from the same congregation in Knox County, Ohio chose to change faiths and be baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the entire community was stunned. Occasionally individuals will choose to leave the faith but it is rare for an entire Amish family to leave – and almost unheard of for 3 families to leave at the same time. After their baptisms, these three families were shunned by their close-knit community becoming completely isolated from the only life they knew. Despite losing family, friends, and businesses they found peace as they worked to redefine their lives. It was their new-found faith that gave them the courage to endure the painful shunning and face the unknown. Through this journey, they found support and love from new friends. Hear about what they discovered about love, loss, and sacrifice.
