"Entertaining and knowledgeable," "Standing room only," are some remarks about Brenda Nixon, a speaker on the Amish and former Amish with emphasis on the reclusive Swartzentruber Order. Brenda speaks at public and private venues sharing amazing stories and insights based on unique experiences with this American sub-culture.
Her 35th book, BEYOND BUGGIES AND BONNETS: Seven true stories of former Amish, chronicles her experiences "adopting" two Amish runaways, befriending and helping others, and as the mother-in-law to a former-Amish earning her the nickname "Mom to ex-Amish." During the holidays, her home is filled family, fun, and former Amish, which always provides lots of laughs, games, and memories.
