Lucinda Kinsinger

Lucinda J Kinsinger has always viewed herself as a shy little Mennonite girl, but refuses to let that stop her from pursuing what she loves—whether that’s writing with honesty and vulnerability or traveling to a remote village in China. In 2019, she married Ivan, the love of her life, and moved from the flat, tree-lined fields of her childhood home to the farmland and rolling hills of Garrett County, Maryland.

Her first book, Anything But Simple: My Life as a Mennonite (Herald Press, 2017), tells of her experiences growing up in a rural Mennonite community and explores the complexities that come with being Mennonite or just with being human. The Arrowhead (Christian Light Publications, 2017), an illustrated children’s book, reimagines the history of a little boy’s answered prayer in a colorful and captivating way that children love. Lucinda is a columnist for Mennonite World Review and The Dock and blogs at lucindajmiller.com.

Some years ago, Lucinda met a fiesty, dark-eyed old woman who jolted her into a deeper understanding of life and of God and nestled into her heart. She is writing that story in a book called Turtle Heart: The Story of a Lonely Old Ojibwa Woman and a Shy Little Mennonite Girl.
