Like her grandmother, Lucinda J. Miller wears long dresses and a prayer covering. But she uses a cellphone and posts status updates on Facebook, too. Anything but Simple is the riveting memoir of a young woman’s rich church tradition, lively family life, and longings for a meaningful future within her Mennonite faith. With a roving curiosity and a sometimes saucy tongue, Miller ushers us into her busy life as a young schoolteacher.
Book 5 in the Plainspoken series. Hear straight from Amish and Mennonite people themselves as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith in the Plainspoken series from Herald Press. Each book includes “A Day in the Life of the Author” and the author’s answers to FAQs about the Amish and Mennonites.

What an interesting memoir on growing up a Mennonite. I have always enjoyed reading about people growing in the Mennonite community but there are not many books about it. This one was very good it was not one of those oh the severe abuse that happened just the normal life. It was very interesting and I highly recommend it.
I found myself unable to put the book down. I am avid fan of Amish and Mennonite fiction but have seldom read nonfiction regarding their lives and beliefs.
Without sounding common, they have the same issues as everyone else. What is my belief in God? How do I live my life to the fullest and stay humble?
I learned a lot from reading Lucinda Miller's account of her Mennonite life. I am looking forward to reading her children's book, The Arrowhead.
Thank you to NetGalley and Herald Press for an ARC to read and write an honest review based on my own opinion.
