Review by: Erwin Boschmann Nov. 13 2014 :
This is a book written by “A Mennonite Central Committee veteran”, a prolific author with world-wide experience and a vast network of contacts. Finding My Way is a wonderful example of God leading in mysterious ways, and showing that when humans want to go one way, God often shows a better way. What I appreciate is how Edgar Stoesz obeyed God’s leading and put his personal wishes and plans aside for the greater good. He has indeed served “in the name of Christ.”

Edgar does not shy away from describing difficulties and disappointments. But as I read these, I think more about his engaging smile, his many talents, his wonderful talks, and his boundless energy.

Farming as a boy in a Mennonite family in Minnesota developed Edgar's values of discipline, family, tenacity, commitment, faith and hope all evidenced in his life dedicated to helping others through his inspiring leadership working with the Mennonite Central Committee, American Leprosy Mission and Habitat for Humanity. In Finding My Way Edgar takes us on a global tour of his involvement sharing his experience and keen insight, teaching us "how to do good things better".

I much enjoyed the experience of reading this. Stoesz has had a remarkable life and the experiences he's passed on in his memoir are far-ranging, touching on some of the major issues of the second half of the 20th century.

I particularly enjoyed his accounts of making decisions throughout his life. It felt honest to me. And I was inspired by the way he dealt with the disappointment of being squeezed out of MCC at an age when he must have had hopes of resting on his laurels and ending his career there. My, what a lot of good happened after that disappointment!
