If you haven’t had a chance to take a stroll around Amish Wisdom lately, here is a recap of what went on this week:


On Monday’s Book Nook, we featured a Q&A with Shelley Shepard Gray, author of A Wedding at the Orange Blossom Inn.


I shared a few of my favorite Amish skies pix on Tuesday’s Traveler’s Tips.


A reader asked, “How does baptism take place in the Amish church?” on Wednesday’s Ask the Amish


In yesterday’s Beyond the Bonnets, I shared about the reason Amish women cover their heads with Kapps.


Stop by today’s Cook’s Corner for a not one, but THREE recipes using canned goods from Simply In Season!

    A huge thank you to all staff at Amish Wisdom. I enjoy the weekly e-mails and blogs. I choose to live a simple life style and happy in Jesus to do this for His glory. Amish genre books are my favorite. I’m enjoying learning about new authors, recipes and more about the Amish culture. Blessings.

    I did not know what Amish baptisms were like. I for some reason thought it was baptism by submersion and now I know that is not correct.
