“5 Points” Posts Wrap-Up: July-September

Here’s the full list of our “5 Points” posts for the last three months, in case you missed any:

five5 Jobs Done By Amish Women
5 Important Events In Amish History
5 Things Amish Children Learn In School (Not Found In Any Textbook)
5 New States Where Amish May Settle
5 Things Decorating The Walls Of Amish Homes
5 Non-Amish People Who Amish Depend On
5 Ways Amish Women Are Different
5 Tips When Visiting An Amish Community

You can also check out the posts in this series from January-March and April-June. So far we’ve done 32 of them this year.

As always, your ideas for future posts in this series are welcome. We don’t get to all of them, but even then sometimes one idea can lead to another.

And thanks as always for reading and contributing. Due to some offline projects, I have not been quite as active here on the site or in the comments lately as I’d like…though I have certainly been reading them, and expect to be able to devote more time soon. Anyway, it’s been nice as always to hear from you all.

      Thanks, Erik! I needed this! I forgot to send my daughter the post on what Amish children learn in school and I’ll have to get to one or two others later (a sister broke a hip a couple months back and I’ve been helping with laundry & shopping, so I’ve not kept up with Amish America as I usually do).

      I like (and appreciate) this idea (update on what we may have missed in your”5 Things” series). If I were retired, it wouldn’t be as important, but since I’m not (yet), I find it quite useful! Thank you, again!

      Happy Fall, y’all! 🙂

      1. Gladly, Alice Mary. My initial intention was to do one 5 Things post per week, but have slipped a bit lately 🙂 Hopefully will be able to get back on pace.

        I too am glad fall is here. Maybe my favorite season, that or spring.

      5 things post

      Hi Eric,
      Well I see you have done 5 ways Amish women are different.
      How about 5 ways Amish men are different.
      I’d be interested to know about that.
      Greetings from down under. Julie

      1. Julie, thanks for mentioning this, I actually did consider that one right after the Amish women post, I think someone else suggested it as well. It wasn’t as easy for me to come up with obvious differences, though I did come up with a few, and it might be worth re-visiting. Do you have any thoughts?

          5 points posts for men

          Hi Eric,
          Yes, actually I do have a few thoughts.
          Obviously how Amish men dress would be one difference,
          2. perhaps how an Amish mans character differs from other men.
          3. The jobs that Amish men work
          4. an Amish man in a family role of husband and father compared to the general everyday bloke. That kind of thing.

          I’m having trouble thinking of a 5th one. sorry.
          I would be interested to read your thoughts on these points in how an Amish mans life is different from a regular bloke.
          These are just ideas though, if your not keen on them, that’s fine.
          Thank you so much Eric.

            5 ways Amish men.....

            5. What do Amish men read for recreation? Western fiction, farm magazines, sports news, gun catalogs, Bible, stuff they’d rather we didn’t know about?
