How This Amish Girl Had a Drastically Unexpected Turn in Life
1. Growing Up Amish
Kate Stoltz, born Kate Stoltzfus, graced this world on January, 1991 as the middle child of seven. She was raised in rural Myerstown, Pennsylvania by a strict and devout Amish family and has over 300 cousins and step-cousins residing all over the U.S.
With her father acting as bishop in the local church, Stoltz and her family chose to forego the traditional comforts associated with the modern world and focused more on family and God. This meant that Stoltz’s exposure to cars, electricity, telephones, and clothing was very limited.
2. A Day in the Life
Stoltz would kick start her morning by going out to feed the cows before school. “After school I’d take care of the calves and make dinner for the family and spend about six hours at a time just out in the fields raking hay,” remembers Stoltz.
As pastoral things go, she also spent her time learning how to sew dresses, smocks, and bonnets at the age of nine for family and charity events, which would later prove to serve her well in more ways than she could have ever imagined. To learn more about the drastic change in her life, read on.
