Woman’s new book opens door to Hutterite culture
Published 11/15/2010, The Daily Republic
After hiding her past for more than 30 years, Mary-Ann Kirkby decided to disclose it in a very public manner.
She did so to learn more about her culture — and herself. Kirkby is the author of “I Am Hutterite: The Fascinating True Story of a Young Woman’s Journey to Reclaim Her Heritage.”
“Until we fully embrace our heritage and really value the power it is meant to bring to our lives, we cannot realize our full potential,” Kirkby writes.
