    Life with Lily contest

    I enjoyed this interview so much. Will sure be a fan of Mary Ann’s and already love Suzanne’s books. I would love to try to be one of the 3 winner’s of this book. I will read it and have several grands who will love it too! I’m sorry that the movie misrepresented the Amish. Thanks! Maxie ( mac262@me.com )

    Lily book

    From research I’ve done, I believe my great-grandmother was an Anabaptist, who left Switzerland for the U.S. with my German great-grandfather. The more I read, the more of my grandmother I find, so I’m fascinated with all things Amish.
    Plus, I have a granddaughter who would love the Lily books. Guess if I don’t win I’ll have to buy it!

    interview

    I missed the interview, unfortunately, but would so love to read these books. I bought so many recently that my husband is ready to make me work a 2nd job to pay for them (not really – LOL). Would be so awesome to win these!!

    Loved reading about Mary Ann Kinsinger moved from NY to Somerset. Ironically, I was a freshair girl from NYC to Somerset area and stayed with Beachy Amish-Mennonites out of the Mt. View congregation. I had a very dearfriend who made me a beautiful quilt for my 21 birthday, she was Old Order from the Niverton congregation. I know many from Niverton and Summit Mills congregations, were you from any of those? I still return on my own and have brought my nieces and nephews and now I have started bringing my great nieces and nephews. I visit with one of the girls whom I grew up with as a child, I enjoy all my visits and many of the folks always tell me about my nixnutsie ventures.
    I will be getting your books as the girls are all so interested especially since they know people who are Old Order Amish. Thanks for the good work too!

      Sandy, I’m so glad you got to stay in Somerset County for a while. No I didn’t belong to Niverton or Summit Mills. I was part of the Pocahontas district but had a lot of friends in the rest of the Somerset church districts as well. There are seven of them.

        I am acquainted with the Pochantas area, going up from Salisbury is the route I remember. I am looking for your book and I have found it at Christain book club. Can’t wait to have a copy, to read to my nieces and great niece.
        Thanks for replying too.

    Life with Lily

    The book sounds fantastic. With Suzanne the book would be a hit, but probably even better since there is an actual is real “ex” Amish writing with her, so you know even the facts would be correct. I read every thing concerning the Amish I can get my hands on, fictional, factual, or otherwise. I just enjoy reading them, even the kiddie books. I can’t wait to read these books. Keep up the good work both of you, and I look forward to other series you guys come out with!

    I’ve been subscribing to the Family Life and children magazine for my grand daughter for several months. She devours them. She would really love these books.

    I love Suzanne’s books and have two daughters that I tell about Amish fiction books all the time. Mary Ann’s books might just be the ticket to helping them to love Amish fiction as much as I do!! Thanks for the opportunity to win her books!!

    I try to remember… I think the only ‘Amish fiction’ I ever read was a book from Josy Picoult. They even made a film about it : the only truth, or something like that. It was in french, because it’s the only amish fictionnal book available in french :)
    Entering the world of children in Old Order communities could be very interesting to my wife and I…

    Thanks Suzanne, Mary Ann and Eric and for this interview !

    Have a nice week-end !
    Bob.

    Comment on Mary Ann Kinsinger on an Amish upbringing + Life with Lily 3-book giveaway (September 28th, 2012 at 23:05)

    I have two 10 year-old granddaughters who know nothing about the Amish and the Amish way of life. They live in a very modern world, where living plain and simple is a completely foreign concept. Not only would they benefit from reading these books, but I would encourage them to take the books to school to share with their classmates, who also live in a very materialistic world. This is a lifestyle I have long wanted to educate them about. They (the girls) are at a very open and accepting age, and this would be the perfect time to introduce them to the Amish.

    This is my first knowledge of books written about Amish children, in a children’s dialogue. Very exciting!

    Thanks for the info, Erik.

    Comment on I'm thrilled these are out (September 29th, 2012 at 12:52)

    I'm thrilled these are out

    I wasn’t going to enter the contest as so many here have children the right age and grandchildren. But my co-worker is just getting interested in Amish and has her 3 small grandchildren often and I believe these books would be so beneficial to them that I’d like to try as well, could open up a door of learning Godly values.
    I’m very excited that these books came out for children.

    Life With Lily

    I have been a fan of Suzanne’s for a long time. I’m sure I will also be a fan of Mary Ann’s. I can’t wait to start reading her blog. My 8 year old granddaughter is an avid reader and she is also interested in all things “Amish”, so I am sure she would enjoy these books.

  • Please enter me in the giveaway. Would love to read this. I enjoy reading Amish books of all kinds. Thank you

    Comment on Mary Ann Kinsinger on an Amish upbringing

    One comment only: I was so glad to read Mary Ann’s thought on “Breaking Amish”. If anyone is farmilier with the Amish it is easily recognized as a ‘fake’ show.
    I am so disappointed the world is getting such a sorry imitation of Amish life.

  • May I jump on the buggy to be included in the Life with Lily giveaway? Suzanne and Mary Ann and Erik make a great team!

    Comment on I'm intriqued (October 1st, 2012 at 13:54)

    I'm intriqued

    My husband and I have met the founders of a new Colorado Amish community. It has grown in a few years from 2 families to several hundred members.

    They were kind enough to invite us to their beautiful home nestled at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. They seem to have a special, yet simple life.

    What a neat concept these books are! I was wondering recently what Amish families do in the evenings after work and chores are done?

    Thank you so much for sharing with us!
