We hope you are staying cool in the summer heat and making a dent in your summer reads pile! If you missed any posts this past week, here’s what you need to catch up on: we read an excerpt from Tim Reddish’s The Amish Farmer Who Hated L.A., took a stroll through the Pleasant Hill Shaker Village with Ann H. Gabhart, and got a taste of New England with Melody Carlson‘s recipe for clam chowder. Our Amish Scribe answered if Amish decorate with flowers and Lynette Sowell gave a look at the beloved tools of the Amish—bicycles and buggies.
Next week, we’ll discover the story behind Lyn Cote’s The Blessing, get the scoop on Amish church services with Amy Clipston, and much more!
