Ex-Amish member Ira Wagler on his journey of forgiveness with Amish family
May 25, 2020
Ira Wagler says forgiveness has made his relationship with his Amish family better than ever.
In a follow-up to his New York Times bestseller Growing Up Amish, Wagler has a new book out, titled Broken Roads: Returning to My Amish Father, where he recounts his reconciliation with his father, family, and heritage after he walked away from the Amish culture over 30 years ago. The author, from Aylmer, Ontario, explores his difficult reunion, his confrontations, betrayals, and questions with faith and identity.
