At the end of her bestselling memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family roots, though her future felt uncertain. When this overeducated professor starts dating the most unlikely of men-a weight-liftin', church-goin', truck-drivin' rocker named Mitch-she begins a surprising journey to faith and love.

Nothing says, "Let's get to know each other!" like lady problems on an epic scale, but Mitch vows to stay by her side. Convinced that his bedrock character has something to do with his Pentecostal church, Rhoda suits up for a brave new world of sparkler pom-poms and hand-clappin' hallelujahs.

Written with her trademark "uproarious, bawdy sense of humor" (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), MENNONITE MEETS MR. RIGHT is witty and moving, perfect for anyone who has taken an unexpected detour only to find that new roads lead to rich destinations. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Rhoda Janzen is one of the few people I trust to write about faith without using God to clobber me. She writes about the most serious things in the world—life, death, family, love—with such spot-on honesty, spiritual humility, and disarming humor that I would follow her anywhere. The nicest thing I can say about her new book is that it made me want to be a better person.”

    Barbara Brown Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of An Altar in the World

  • [Mennonite Meets Mr. Right] made me laugh out loud, often enough to make my beloved children inquire as to whether I was losing my mind. Too much spiritual writing these days claims that religious practice is about healing or developing the self. But Rhoda Janzen avoids this theme: here she sets out on a path to become more loving, grateful, and helpful to others. This is particularly impressive given that she’s writing about a period in her life when she’s got a scary, life-threatening illness and brand-new family.”

    Kate Braestrup, New York Times bestselling author of Here If You Need Me

  • “Breezy despite the weighty subject matter…Janzen’s wit and love of fashion keep things light.” 


  • “Amazingly light-hearted…[Janzen] is not so much proselytizing for her particular religion as she is pointing toward the value of examining one’s own beliefs, whatever they might be, and finding a way to live with them in joy.” 

    Tampa Bay Times

  • “Janzen continues her quirky tales of finding faith in unlikely places…[A] vibrant, charming narrative.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Janzens recounts the travails and joys encountered while finding love, embracing her new beau’s religion, and surviving breast cancer…A welcome second installment.”
