Maybe you'd like to be Amish...but not quite. You want more peace in your life, in your home, in your family, and in your heart. You want to try a new recipe and pick up a needle and thread. You want to learn to simplify and care for God's green earth (and teach your children to do the same).

I’ve been thinking more about misconceptions lately, mine in particular. Mine show my ignorance. Or assumptions I don’t even realize I… Read More

Where Have All the Amish Gone?

Where-Have-All-the-Amish-Gone

When I was in third grade, I started the year off in a Cincinnati area elementary school that has since been leveled. The school lives on in my memory, though, because of the amazing music teacher.
