"Ruth Smith Meyer's Out of the Ordinary is a most apt title for her autobiography. With vivid description, she gives an account of her life in a Mennonite family. Her spiritual experiences from childhood throughout her life are beautifully related. The little girl that was is full of curiosity and wonder at the world around her, but the culture she was born into denied her intellect to fully flourish. The author portrays her extraordinary life with candour, leaving the reader with a deep understanding of her trust in God. All who read this autobiography will rejoice at the remarkable accomplishments of this woman of faith."
