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 learned more about Emma Miller, author of The Amish Bride.


Martha Bolton shared the places (and musicals!) to see in Arcola, Illinois on Tuesday’s Traveler’s Tips.


A reader asked, “Does the Amish faith allow for members to collect items, for example, dolls or teddy bears?” on Wednesday’s Ask the Amish


In yesterday’s Beyond the BonnetsErik Wesner shared 3 ways the Amish church is (probably) different from yours.

    I always enjoy the Amish Wisdom posts. I didn’t realize the Amish had collections of anything. So that was something new I learned this week. I really enjoyed the post by Martha Bolton for Arcola, IL since that is close to where I leave. A great place to visit and the Green Mill Village Theatre is doing an outstanding job. I look forward seeing Josiah for President in 2016. Blessings.
