INSIDE AN AMISH HOME

The PA Amish lifestyle has remained largely unchanged since they settled in Lancaster County 300 years ago.

On the surface, the PA Amish lifestyle might appear to be staid and inflexible. However, it reflects a way of life that is based on a literal interpretation of the Bible, as well as unwritten rules from the Amish Ordnung that prescribes behavior, appearance and other aspects of the Amish culture. The resulting community of Amish in PA is one of humility, modesty, obedience, equality and simplicity.

  7. Very cool, Francine!

  8. I was expecting their homes to be more austere!

  9. Great pictures. If only we could all follow the rules of humility, modesty, equality and simplicity. I left out obedience since I don’t believe a woman owes obedience to a man nor a man to another man unless it’s the law of the land or an officer in Uniform. The world could be so much nicer.
