This book opens a window into the lives of two ordinary people
who lived through extraordinary circumstances. Daadi and Mammi Rutt
lived through World Wars, depressions, major Church splits, the death
of three children, and numerous illnesses and plagues. Yet through it
all they remained steady, faithful pillars in the community and a haven
from the storms of life for their family. Mammi Rutt kept a diary from
April 18, 1930 to December 26, 1962. Read along as she covers mundane
chores to significant milestones in the Rutt Family and community.
A commentary on the Weaverland Mennonite Conference, also known as
"The Horning Church" or "Black Bumper Church" is provided, as well as
commentary into the Church's struggle to accept "machines"
(automobiles) and the activities of their young people.
