With all the modern technology, we often forget that there might be a simple solution. And, look how many were able to have that feeling of helping another in need. I just love the way the Amish help each other. It is not just in their community….some years ago the Amish came and help build a barn on my father-in-laws in Delaware.

BTW, there is a new Quaker saying: Love Thy Neighbor, No Exceptions!

Only Amish women use straight pins to fasten their clothing together. Amish men don’t. I, for one really wish they didn’t, because their pins damage the upholstery in my vehicle, and, the pins frequently fall out. They don’t seem to care much about my personal property. They just care about maintaining a silly tradition. They could use safety pins, but they would say that’s too fancy. I wonder if they use straight pins in a baby’s diaper?

5 Non-Amish People Who Amish Depend Upon

Comment #633007 by Yoder in Ohio on 20.03.19, 05:29

I’m happy to pay whatever a driver charges me. AND tip for good service. The cheapest drivers are not always the good ones!

Yep I rely on the American economy and manufacturing system… just like everyone else in this country. What I can produce myself I do, but I shop in local stores both Amish and not and order from catalogs and eat in non Amish restaurants, use non Amish doctors and the list goes on and on and on — but who is pretending anything else?

15 Ways Amish Schools Differ From Public Schools

Comment #632994 by eran on 19.03.19, 23:40

So, true, with americans watching 11+ hours a day on tv/internet (Nielson), and probably less reading by kids, esp. solid content, the Amish kids are probably far more intelligent in an indirect way today, at least so with language.

Now, for all you public-schoolers: adios.
We now homeschool, and very involved with the community. Later I plan to start mini-home-community homeschools in my town so combine the best of both worlds==sorta like the Amish

I read your article a few weeks ago, and today my husband found Fannie’s farm! I was so excited! She invited me in and we had a wonderful conversation. I bought a rug and a small crib blanket. She and part of her family are moving out of state soon. I’m so glad I found her!

5 Non-Amish People Who Amish Depend Upon

Comment #632916 by Robin on 18.03.19, 22:38

In reality, the Amish rely on the “English” (non-Amish) for almost everything! Think about it. Let’s start with iron and steel. What farm could produce any crop without this vital product? Are there any Amish iron ore mines? Do any Amish produce modern (or any) steel, which requires a blast furnace/smelter, not to mention all the required associated technologies (i.e. liquid oxygen, cobalt, liquid nitrogen, complex electrical control systems, and so much more)? Pots, pans, spoons, knives and forks! Plow blades, nails, screws, bolts & nuts……anything made of metal(s). The list goes on and on….. bricks, cinder blocks, plastics, diesel motors, fuel…..propane, gas, diesel. Fertilizers, seeds, wood….. where should I stop? Everything!!! And, of course……the Amish Express (drivers), which, the Amish only want to pay $0.80-$1.00/mile of driving! But, the driver’s minimal cost is only $0.55-$0.75/mile!!! Frugal or just downright cheap!?!?

Two Runaway Buggies In The Past 3 Days

Comment #632902 by Maureen on 18.03.19, 17:41

The Amish/Mennonites who travel by way of hore and buggy commonly use saddlebred, standardbreds, Morgans, Friesens, Dutch Harness bred horses. Even the very best experienced horse people are misitifed as to why a well trained, sound horse might suddenly, and without warning break away. The horse was obviously spooked by someone, or some thing. A smell. sound, color, or low ground motion can have them immediately breaking away. Things us humans cannot see or hear have a horse reacting. i have known the soundest of horses to suddenly become frightened. Truthfully I don’t know how these accidents are not more common; most well traveled roads are not designed for horse and buggy commute, and riding in one is plain dangerous.

Two Runaway Buggies In The Past 3 Days

Comment #632888 by lisa on 18.03.19, 13:02

I am so disappointed that new drivers are not taught to respect horses while driving. On more than one occasion, while mounted, I have experienced drivers honking their horns or rushing up behind. Spooks even the seasoned horse.
And, while hauling horses with a bumper pull, even the police came up and honked. The weight of the horses while in a trailer as well as their kicking was dangerous. I had to tell the police to shut off their lights and to back off. There are still hoof prints in the trailer door.
Non Amish need to be taught what true horse power really is like before they can obtain a drivers license.

See Yoder-in-Ohio’s comments. In many communities the pins are used only for certain dress items. Asking Amish women how often they get poked by their pins I get a puzzled look and answers ranging from “I don’t,” to “Never.” Apparently if they are put in properly, they don’t “poke.”

Amish Teen Girl Rescued From Buggy During Flood

Comment #632814 by Matthew Ben Joseph on 17.03.19, 14:56

Thank the good Lord that the girl is alright. We must understand there is alot going on in America and God sees the sins of our hearts. let us not judge one another in the flesh. Rather let us pray for one another. Thank God that girl was saved form the flood. Floods, Fires, earthquakes, and Tornadoes will increase in America this year. Yes Floods happen but know that nothing happens with out the Lord God knowing it. Jesus Christ knows all things. We all have doors open in our own lives, we need to go before the Lord and ask Him to forgive us and heal us. We are commanded to Love one another, forgive one another, and pray for one another.
Shalom,
Matthew Ben Joseph
