    I actually considered what life would be like if I lived in a Bruderhof…I attended a couple children’s celebrations at one in Western PA. Thanks for the opportunity..this looks like a very interesting book!

    I loved the comment that children should be loved, not adored. My husband got scolded by my sisters for not “adoring” his daughters but he sure loved them!

    I’ve always thought it was interesting that they unplug from many things and stick to the basics of life. It would be nice to incorporate some of that into my family!

    There is something to be said for the simple life. I have to say that for me personally though, I love technology and truly rely on it on a daily basis. I wouldn’t mind leaving it behind for a week maybe but that’s probably about as long as I could do it for.

    This looks great and I appreciate the opportunity to win a copy. If families today would adopt just a few of the basics maybe we would not have a many problems with our kids today.

    I just spent the whole weekend in Lancaster PA and my family and I spent 5 hours learning about the Amish. It was a huge eye opener to see how they live and what good comes out of their lifestyle. I feel like we are all consumed with gadgets and not our family.

    Our family has a cottage in Michigan in the middle of a very Amish area. I often say to my husband when we see a buggy going down the road how nice it must be to be Amish. No internet or tv to bother you. Living and interacting with people who share the same values you do. I would love to live with the Amish for a while and just experience a different kind of life. It would be wonderful to win and read this book.

    I have always been attracted to Amish simplicity and curious about their way of life. In 8th grade i wrote a paper about the Amish culture and got an A+. (Wow, that was a long time ago!)
    We are recovering from a house fire. Amish crews are rebuilding our house. As we replace and restore our home, i long to simplify but fear we may not know how to do that. We need to learn new ways.

    Thank you for sharing my book with your readers! So glad you felt it was so worthwhile to moms. I have loved my interactions with the Old Order Amish. I’m always inspired by their focus on the “right stuff.”

    Suzanne is right on in how the Amish values can help enhance your family life. I am former Old Order and Mennonite ( liberal now), and my mother was raised Hutterite, and I just love Suzanne’s books. Her ‘Amish Wisdom’ show is a great treat, too.. Please check her out online!

    I don’t understand how the Amish can live without what we call necessities. I admire them for sticking to their beliefs, but no computer or electricity? Not for me!
