    Hi Erik, I enjoy this site…You said we could ask questions. I have a couple…
    I’m now reading “The Best Of The Amish Cook” by Elizabeth Colblentz (Editor:Kevin Williams) Vol. I…and on pg. 165 Elizabeth said clothes were washed by a motorless washing machine….can you explain…..seems like they do a lot of washing….and if they had to wash by hand on a washboard (yes I know what that is…..occasionally I have had to use one)LOL that would take forever and I don’t see how Elizabeth did all that she did in one day and that included washing, baking, house cleaning, working in garden etc……just curious…..
    Also, do they dig their own water wells ? If they do then I have another question re: this….will wait for your answer…..
    Just read all the pages on here re: your book “Success Made Simple” very interesting…..is this your only book out ?
    A lot of us would like to know more about the Amish, perhaps you could write one including all that info…..or if there is already one written, could you give me that info? Thanks Erik………Mona

    Sorry mispelled Coblentz…….it is COBLENTZ, not Colblentz as I previouslly stated…..sorry.

  • Hi Mona, thanks!

    On the first question, you might try this link: http://amishamerica.com/how-do-amish-women-wash-clothes/ (you’ll have to cut and paste it as my comments section doesn’t permit active links).

    And: Amish do dig water wells, in many if not most cases.

    On your last ?, I have a book along those lines planned..more info coming soon 😉 But there are some great books about Amish life in general, including the Riddle of Amish Culture by Donald Kraybill. There are a few shorter ones as well for a more general look at the Amish.

    Also, if you have a specific ? or topic, try the Amish Online Encyclopedia on this site (click link at menu bar at top). Hope that helps!
