    Does Beechy Drive have anything to do with Beachy Amish?

    Thank you G. I am honored that you chose my blog.

    John, probably not this specific drive but Beachy/Beechy/Beachey is a common last name among the Amish and was the last name of the bishop associated with the original group.

    Do you know of any opportunities for young English women to like spend a week in an Amish settlement? I’m really interested in the Amish way of life and think I can get a few pointers from them. I don’t agree with alot of the “traditions” of man myself. I also need a cross cultural experience to graduate from my college. Thanks!

    Finding an Amish host family

    That’s great that you would like that experience, Kaile. I would think the best way would be to set it up informally by asking around in a settlement if you’re near one.

    Another way might be to place an ad in a paper such as the Budget out of Sugarcreek, Ohio advertising your interest; the national edition of the paper is widely read by Amish and Mennonites across America and that might be a way to find a family that would be interested. I hope you are able to do it and let me know how it goes if you do.
