“Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet.” Amish Proverb
The lush green pastures along the interstate had Savannah Carmichael in awe as she listened carefully to the directions
Rebecca stood at the sink washing dishes as she watched her sisters Anna and Emma take clothes off the line. All morning she’d listened to them carry on about finishing their chores so they could get back to the project they were working on. They'd been keeping a secret, and it was all she could do to watch them whisper and giggle behind her back.
We typically think of wedding season as being spring and summer but to the Amish fall ushers in the beginning of the marriage season.
With basements filled with bountiful canning jars and silos bursting with winter feed the harvest season comes to an end as the anticipation of wedding season begins.
Tracy Fredrychowski, country girl, author, homesteader and everything simple living shares her love for the written word here on The Amish Lifestyle.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania I spent my childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggies woke me each morning as Amish men drove past my parent's home on their way to the lumber mill to work. As a young teenager, I was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved my family and changed my life forever. (If you want to read about it, please read Crimson Stain by Jim Fisher and take note that Jake, who was an essential part of that true story was my uncle.)
My life has always been intertwined with the Amish culture, and it's only fitting that I have a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered life.
