Out of the Ordinary by Ruth Smith Meyer

"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."

With vivid memories of her very early life, Ruth Smith Meyer has spent seven decades processing what has made her feel different or unusual. Whether it was being born into a conservative Mennonite family, the differences in her physical composition, or the events of her life, they all contributed to the struggle and growth she experienced as she faced them one by one.

Each of us is a unique being with our own special personality and genetic make-up. Some of us are more aware of the disparity than others. Smith Meyer's candid recounting of her life from childhood to her senior years will keep you engaged. You will often relate to her struggles, grappling with inner conflicts and growth, and identify with the changes and decisions she needed to make.
