What would it be like to share all your possessions and live in Christian community?
In Hutterite Diaries, Linda Maendel offers a rare glimpse into the daily routines and communal faith of her people, the Hutterian Brethren. From stories of working together to bring in the fall potato harvest to laugh-out-loud tales of sisterly love laced with revenge, Maendel invites readers into her Bruderhof, or colony, nestled on the prairie of western Canada. Here children and adults work, play, eat, and worship together, crafting a community of goods and living out an alternative to the individualism and consumerism of mainstream society.

REVIEW
How would you feel if you had to live in a Christian community and share all your worldly possessions? The author, Linda Maendel shares a  small glimpse into the everyday work and faith of her people, the Hutterian Brethren.  Everyone worked together for the better of the whole.  The book has stories of coming together to bring in
the fall potato crop, laughing out  loud stories when sisters have a romance. Ms. Maendel takes the readers into her colony, known as her Bruderhof.  It is on a prairie in western Canada.  Everyone works, eats, plays and worships together.  They use their talent to craft goods for a living.  This is an alternative to the everyday mainstream society.  A wonderfully written book that takes you into the life of people who are different to us in some ways and very much like us in others.  I would recommend this book to everyone.  It will being a calming affect to your heart.  The books about the Plainspoken series are:
Book 1 Chasing the Amish Dream: My Life as a Young Amish Bachelor by Loren Beachy
Book 2 Called to Be Amish: My Journey from Head Majorette to the Old Order by Marlene Miller
Book 3 Hutterite Diaries: Wisdom from My Prairie Community by Linda Maendel


I was given a complimentary copy of HUTTERITE DIARIES from the author, Linda Maendel and Litfuse Bloggers for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
