In Their Own Words


A few years ago a great book was published, entitled The Amish In Their Own Words, edited by Brad Igou of Amish Country News.

Brad combed through 25 years of Amish writings in Family Life magazine, putting together a collection of Amish wisdom, history, and explanations of why they do the things they do, all written from an Old Order standpoint.

If you’ve ever wondered how Amish women feel about having so many children, what shunning is really all about, or if the Amish have a sense of humor (they do), it’s a great book to check out.

In Their Own Words reveals the real people behind the image.

      Wondering if we still have Amish people in Ontario and would they allow a mother and 8 year old daughter to visit for a week? Would like my daughter to experience a different way of life as alot of people know life has changed so much. Please contact me through my email. Thank you very much.
