    Growing Up Amish...then leaving it behind !

    "Born in Jefferson City Missouri, my parents raised me and my nine brothers and sisters in a very rigorous Amish culture. I didn't really know that I was different until later in life, and was led to believe that this life was meant to be difficult. As time went on, I began to look outside the Amish community for answers and in 1992 I did the unthinkable...I left my Amish heritage behind.

    After 24 years of questioning my self-worth, I made up my mind to seek my future elsewhere. Now, I want to share my personal experiences to show you how you too can live the best of both cultures."

    Anna's quest for answers lead her to realize that people are fascinated with the Amish lifestyle. She came to the realization that the knowledge she had gained by living in both cultures, was what made her life so rich today. She wanted to be able to share the fullness of her life with others, and concluded that the best way to do this was to share her experiences in the hopes that others would learn and be inspired by them.

    Anna's Journey Has Taken Her from the Depths of Despair to the Life She Has Always Dreamed of Living

    "Growing up Amish" was written in order to teach you that your goals are attainable. No matter who you are, or where you are from, the power to transform your life is within you. The only thing you need is the willingness to try, and the motivation to succeed. This story of a young Amish woman, living in constant self-doubt and negativity, who found a way to reconstruct her life, is proof that anything is possible.

    Anna's story of self-discovery and finding the strength within to make positive changes can't help but make you want to take action in your life.  Let this story inspire you like it has so many others, to defeat your fears and achieve your goals.

    A captivating story of real life in the Amish Community and how the determination of a young woman who knew that life outside the walls of the community would be a better life - one she was going to have no matter how hard the struggles would be. This book is a gripping account of reality too harsh to bare, yet a fascinating look at the culture and an easy read. I couldn't put the book down until finishing it and am looking forward to her next book.

    A Message From Anna...


    I don’t share my experiences to get sympathy from anyone. My hope is that as I share my deepest thoughts in regards to my experiences growing up Amish, you too can be inspired to change whatever is stopping you.

    I wake up everyday with the knowledge of where I came from and how I turned all those negative events of my past life to become a better person.  I realize that my past does not define me it just prepared me to be who I am today.

    Growing up Amish has taught me how to live a more fulfilling, less selfish life, full of love and respect.


    With Gratitude,

    Anna Dee olson

    Here is What Others Are Saying About 

    Anna Dee Olson...

    The information Anna Dee presented on the Amish was from personal experience and was both informative and inspiring.

    The question answer time was an important part of her presentation.  It was obvious listeners felt free to ask any question and Anna Dee was forthright in her answers that lead to more questions.

    This topic was of special interest to our community because we have so many Amish families in our community.  However, I believe it is of interest to any community to better understand those who are different from us.  There is also more interest in the Amish people after the school teacher and girls were murdered and their response to this tragic event.

    I thought it was very informative.  It showed how what an amazing life they live.  Unless a person has lived that way of life, you don't know why they live the way they do.  It reminds me of someone being poor and not knowing how the richer people live.

    Yes, we always see the Amish going past our home and in the businesses and you often wonder what their lives are about.  After hearing Ann's story, I can see that they take their culture very serious. 

    I feel since there are so many Amish spread across the country and in so many communities, that it is good for the general public to know how their lives are lived.

    I think that speaking in schools and churches would be a good place to get a mixed group of the general public.  There could also be community meetings set up by town leaders.  In fact if they had a community meeting with coffee furnished and maybe juice and people would come and then maybe shop in the town afterward.  So it would benefit the community as well.

    My husband and I were at a presentation that Anna Dee gave about the life of the Amish people.  Previously all we knew is what we had seen on television and heard about the Amish people in our local area. 

    What we have learned from Anna Dee helps us to understand why they live the way they do.  The questions she encouraged people to ask after her presentation were very interesting and informative.

    I know there is a lot more to know and I am looking forward to reading your book.
