Amish Latter-Day Saints: Blending Two Worlds into One
When three devout Amish families from the same congregation in Knox County, Ohio, chose to change faiths and be baptized members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the entire community was stunned. Occasionally individuals will choose to leave the Amish faith, but it is rare for an entire family to leave—and almost unheard of for three families to leave at the same time. After their baptisms, these three families were shunned by their close-knit community, becoming completely isolated from the only life they knew. Despite losing family, friends, and businesses, they found peace as they work to redefine their lives and blend their two worlds into one. It was their newfound faith that gave them courage to endure the painful shunning and face the unknown. Through this journey they found support and guidance from new friends. Hear what they discovered about love, loss, and sacrifice in this intriguing new documentary.
