Jolina Petersheim’s Endorsement!

A Midwife in Amish Country chronicles one woman’s incredible journey as a wife, mother, and midwife so readers can see how life, death, and love are all intertwined. The birthing stories gave me chills and the ending brought tears to my eyes as I contemplated how much sacrifice midwifery requires. Thank you, Kim Woodard Osterholzer for shedding light on such an intimate profession!”

—Jolina Petersheim, bestselling author of The Midwife 

I met Jolina over Twitter almost exactly two years ago after I found her book and introduced myself. I was delighted to find her warm and wonderfully friendly, and I went right off and immersed myself in her charming book.

A year passed and I waxed so bold as to ask if she’d be willing to read and endorse my own smattering of words. She blessed me by saying she would and I sent her my—ARGH—first draft! Oh, Kim! KIM!!! What on earth were you thinking?

And yet, soon after, she sent me a note that thrilled my heart to its roots, “Dear Kim, thank you for sharing your beautiful journey with me today. I meant just to read a little portion, but then found I couldn’t stop until I’d reached the end. Your faith is wondrous and inspiring. Here is my endorsement.”

Thank you, sweet, gracious Jolina, for taking time out of your full schedule to read and endorse A Midwife in Amish Country, and for being the very first person in the profession to believe in me and my book ♥
