About the Author

Marianne Jantzi is an Amish writer and homemaker in Ontario, Canada. Formerly a teacher in an Amish school, Jantzi now educates and inspires through her "Northern Reflections" column for The Connection, a magazine directed mainly to Amish and plain communities across the U.S. and Canada. She and her husband have four young children and run a shoe store among the Milverton Amish settlement of Ontario.


"Simple Pleasures: Stories from My Life as an Amish Mother is a sweet and encouraging book of real life, love, and faith. Jantzi's vignettes are like cherished letters of old from a dear friend who has a deliciously exhiliarting everyday life.

--Cindy Woodsmall "Reviews "

"Reading Simple Pleasures feels like a heart-to-heart talk with a close friend. Marianne Jantzi's gentle wisdom and love for family shines throughout. A lovely read for anyone, but an especially encouraging gift for a new mom or a young mother."

--Serena B. Miller "Reviews "

"Woven with insights, humor, and deeply-seated spiritual wisdom, mother and wife Marianne Jantzi opens her home and heart as she recounts her real-life experiences, offering fresh and honest perceptions of the Amish."

--Kate Lloyd "Reviews "

"This charming story of a mother and her family will have the reader alternately chuckling, reminiscing, and pondering with pleasure the small everyday events that make up the fullness of life in this Amish home. Jantzi is a natural storyteller, and her book is simply fun to read."

--Karen M. Johnson-Weiner "Reviews "

"Simple Pleasures reminds me of a patchwork quilt. Each simple piece is stitched together with faith, family, and friendships, creating a beautiful whole. Jantzi offers a gentle reminder to savor the seemingly insignificant moments in time, for they fill us with love, warmth, and a feeling of wellbeing, just like a quilt."

--Linda Maendel "Reviews "
