Vannetta Chapman Interview Part 4 Graphic

It’s countdown week at! Anna’s Healing (Book 1 in the Plain & Simple Miracles series) releases TODAY, and we’re celebrating with a series of fun little interviews with author Vannetta Chapman. Let’s discover something new about this prolific Amish-fiction author and dive into the major themes of her new book!

Today’s interview gives us a peek at some of Vannetta’s favorite things pertaining to Anna’s Healing

Vannetta’s Favorites

  • Character in Anna’s Healing: I adore Anna’s grandmother. Mammi is old and somewhat infirm, but she is a strong pillar of faith and encouragement. We all need a mammi in our lives, and we all need to be Mammi to someone else.
  • Line in the story: I have several favorite lines from this story. One is, “Her grandmother’s love was both deep and wide. It was a miracle in itself.”
  • Experience on her research trip to Oklahoma Amish country: When I walked into an Amish store and saw an Amish woman behind the counter sewing on a Singer sewing machine. It was allowed because she was at work rather than home. She was a much better seamstress than I am!
  • Miracle Jesus performed, as recorded in the Gospels (besides the best one of all, the Resurrection and forgiveness of sins!): One of the inspirations for this book was Mark 2:1-5. This is the story of the paralyzed man being healed by Christ. The man’s friends bring him to Jesus. Unable to get into the room, they lower the man down through the roof. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” What compassion and grace, and what a testament to true friendship.
  • Verse or chapter from the book of Psalms: I love the Psalms! One of my favorite passages is Psalm 100. These 5 verses are packed with joy.
