My name is John Miller, and I grew up in an Old Order Amish community in the small town of Cashton, Wisconsin. I loved living close to family and being able to feel connected to nature through my farming. I also loved driving horses!
My relationship with my parents was good, and their relationship as husband and wife was good as well. Unfortunately, though, some of my siblings were not treated as well.
I accepted Christ as my personal Savior in the Amish church when I was fifteen years old, but it wasn’t until my 20’s that I started seeking for answers about God’s instruction on how the church was supposed to be operated. I continued to study and try to gain more truth in order to better teach my children.
Eventually, my family and I decided to leave the Amish, and we received a lot of support from Fountain of Life ministries. We also had good friends, English neighbors, and a church family to support us as we transitioned.
When we decided to leave, we had to face the challenge of not having much family to interact with; this has been very difficult. We have experienced complete shunning and aren’t even allowed to go to family funerals.
Currently, I am the president of the board of Fountain of Life ministries and plan to spend my older years as an evangelist serving in the ministry. I also have a dream of writing a book at some point in hopes that God could use my story to reach others!
