Mennonite Girls in a Modern World Banner.png

We are starting a podcast!

And we are so excited to have you join us on this new adventure where we get to talk about all things Mennonite - the good, the bad, the food, and all the ways our culture has shaped us.

Our hearts’ desire is to connect with Mennonite sisters scattered around the world and to encourage each other in our walk with God - to follow Jesus above all! It is here that you will find episodes and updates.

Our first episode will be released on October 1, 2019!

We are just waiting for Deanna to return from an overseas trip before we get the fun started. Until then, we would love to hear from you - our listener. What would you like to hear us talk about on our podcast?
