PLEASE WELCOME “Whoopie Pie Pam” Jarrell!
Thanks for inviting me to drop by your blog today.
I have always been an avid reader. When I discovered my first “plain” book, I knew I was hooked. My interactions with the Amish world go back approximately 15 years. Through the introduction of an Amish family that my parents had become friends with, a whole new world opened up to me. A world that has brought me to who I am today … “Whoopie Pie” Pam. Aptly named by a sweet Amish man who told me that if I ate one more whoopie pie, I would turn into one and I would become fat. Well, I didn’t turn into one. As for becoming fat … we will skip that part. I never dreamed, approximately 12 years ago, that when Schmidt John first called me “Whoopie Pie” Pam, that I would later be selling a collection of books, penned by my own hand, under that trademark name: “Whoopie Pie” Pam.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma. This resulted in a 3-year battle for me. Through this medical crisis, God spoke gently to my mind and inspired me to create the Whoopie Pie Book Club.
Whoopie Pie Book Club is my ministry. Not only do I get to share my love for the Amish culture and Amish fiction, I get to share with everyone about my God and what he has done for me. And most of all, what he can do for them! Without him, I would be nothing. I would have nothing. At present day, there are over 2500 members of the WPBC and each one is family.
My very first cookbook, Christmas Cookie Exchange, was released in November 2012. My most recent book, Pray Love Eat, are recipes from my heritage of growing up in a small country community where a little country church is the foundation in which the community flourished. Each and every book I write has some meaning in my life.
I’m happy to give away a free copy of Pray Love Eat, a signed paperback or an eBook, to someone who comments below. Tell me a brief description of how you were first introduced to the Amish Culture. (USA only. Winner has 5 days to respond.)
