The Amish Fascinate Me!
This is a link to the book giveaway on the Amish of New York studies by Karen Johnson Weiner.
The Amish way of life fascinates me because.......
I grew up very simple. We lived a lot like the Amish of today live. It fascinates me that they have so much willpower to continue in such a way, when the rest of the world is going on around them in our modern ways. You have to respect anyone who has that much willpower, and accomplishes as much as they do.I guess they have their family problems the same as everyone else, but the families all work together for a common cause whether it be for work or to help a fellow Amish out in time of sickness. We have heard from some of our Amish friends that when one member of the group has a huge hospital bill to pay, many of them chip in to pay the bill. Now how many families do you know of our regular "English" people,would do that?They have some ways that are definitely different from ours,but over all, you have to admire and respect them.
