    My DH, Darrell, and I have a subscription to The Connection and we just love it. It’s often a “fight” to see gets to read it first. What we like the most about it is that it’s robust enough to last the whole month if you take your time reading it! And it makes a great Christmas present.

    I wondered if Canadians are allowed to get the magazine. Would they send it to use and if so would it cost more money.

    Comment on so proud!!! (December 13th, 2011 at 19:58)

    so proud!!!

    I am so proud and honored to know each of the staff here at The Connection! I know that this is an awsome magazine ,maybe even bridging a gap between different cultures, I know the community of Amish has touched me in a way of true loving and caring ways…. their simplicity, their sincerity, there way of helping without every expecting anything in return… truely a blessing…we can all learn alot from them and there ways!!! I know I have!!!

  • I read two issues of Connection this fall and enjoyed many of
    the articles. Some reminded me of the same writing style of
    “scribes” who write weekly letters (news reports) in The Budget.
    I think it is a very interesting publication and one of which I
    would like to read more issues.

    I did wonder about a couple of things. On the front cover of
    the November issue are a couple of pictures of children who are
    dressed in non-plain clothes (girls wearing slacks, no head
    coverings, logo t-shirt, etc). Then on p. 74 there were more
    children dressed very similarly. So I wondered if children
    in some higher order Amish communities no longer dressing plain?

    Also, how is The Connection accepted in the lower order communities? Would lower order Amish be more likely to read
    Family Life and Plain Interests and higher order Amish be more
    likely to read The Connection?

    • Connection readership, and children in November issue

      Hi Al, I’ve got some answers for you too. Mary Alice says that the children you mentioned in the November issue are not Amish, but are at an Amish home daycare and are dressed more plain due to the fact.

      As for readership being more higher order Amish, at first she said she really didn’t think so–that they have a lot of readers from WI, IA, and MN…but that in fact their greatest numbers come from IN, OH and PA, so that might actually be the case.

      • Thanks Erik and Mary Alice for answers to my questions. I didn’t think Amish kids had started dressing just like English kids,
        but was curious, since Amish life seems to be always changing
        in one community or another.

        I think The Connection is a very worthwhile publication and I
        plan to subscribe. In the Sept. and Nov. issues I was as interested in reading the ads from the many Amish businesses
        as well as all of the interesting articles.

    Comment on Connection and the Lower Amish Orders (December 14th, 2011 at 12:42)

    Connection and the Lower Amish Orders

    Erik, Al & Mary Alice ~ I would think that Amish from many levels read the magazine. I know of two Old Order families that subscribe as well as one Andy Weaver Order that subscribes. I would think that if the most conservative of the orders didn’t subscribe it would be based on financial choices as well as content choices. I have talked with a Schwartzentruber lady that I have come to know and she tells me that they don’t subscribe to any periodicals because it’s a frivolous waste of money that they can’t afford.

  • Erik,The Connection is a wonderful magazine and I know Mary Alice and Doretta they are both beautiful people I haven’t met Nancy yet but hoping this summer when we go to visit we will. I had a few days of visit with Mary Alice, Doretta and their families when they came to Tennessee the week after christmas they also had some dear friends with them Dennis and Ruth and there son. we had a wonderful visit.These ladies does a wonderful job on this magazine it is well worth the money for it.

    I noticed this article this morning, in 2013, and re-read the article. I was curious why the Canadian order price is 72.00 USD, does that give those of us interested in getting The Connection north of the boarder a year long (or longer) subscription?
