A Joyful Chaos former Amish blog

Joyful chaos

A Joyful Chaos is a blog written by a formerly Amish mother of three.  This is her photo above, which she has shared on her blog, along with some other family photos from her time as a part of the Somerset County, Pennsylvania Amish community.

The author discusses the Amish approach to photography and growing up Amish, among other things.  Back in July, she commented on Amish America that “I have met very few Amish that don’t enjoy seeing a picture of themselves in a newspaper or elsewhere. When asked permission most will deny but secretly hope there will be some poached pictures. Communities do vary in this aspect.”

I recommend having a look at this interesting, unusual blog.

      This is such a wonderful photo. I’ll have to sign up to this blog. Another perspective to ponder.
      Thanks Erik 🙂

      “A Joyful Chaos” is a delightful blog. I’ve been reading it for some time now after finding it from one of her posts here. She relates her stories well and they are a pleasure to read.

      HI,

      I found out some states allow licenses without picture and SSN.

      I use the short form of the birth certificate less information.

      Also, Concord police in California allowed me to drive with a notarized statement of who I am. A notary can be done by 2 witnesses.

      Also, I built a living underground bunker with vents in tree stumps, growing mushrooms and algae, with an outlet (covered) to a pond with ducks. It just looked like a piece of land.

      Also, a UCC-13 is a recreational cabin avadavat allowed without inspection? in Pennsylvania.

      120sqft homes are allowed in some places without inspection.

      LOVE YOU ALL

      I DO NOT WATCH TV PICTURES, MOVIES, I DO NOT TAKE AN RFID CHIP IN HAND, I DO NOT HAVE A SSN, I DONT WATCH CARTOONS OR HAVE DOLLS, OR DO 3D IDOLS.

      I EAT CLEAN FOOD, NO PORK.

      I don’t think Amish are very good to women.I grew up in the plain church. https://growingupamishmichigan.blogspot.com/2022/06/are-amish-communities-safe-for-women.html
