Mary grew up in an Old Order Amish community of devotion, peace, and simplicity, only to one day leave it all for a higher calling in Christ.
Mary Schrock was born into an Amish family and grew up in an Old Order Amish community. She joined their church, married an Amish young man, and had two children while living in the Amish culture and religion.
It was not until she was twenty-six years old that Mary and her husband realized some surprising truths about the Amish religion. This realization resulted in them leaving all they had ever known and enter the "English" world with a new Hope and purpose in life.
In Mary's autobiography, The Greater Inheritance, she beautifully tells the story of her childhood, growing up years, courtship and their early married life, and their journey to find the Truth.
Mary and her husband have five adult children (four of whom are married) and fourteen grandchildren. When she is not busy writing, Mary is active in her local church and she loves to read, scrapbook, sew, and bake.
