Amish Lifestyle- A Preferred Way of Life

The Amish lifestyle and preferred way of life revolves around farming. They feel that it is best for the family in a rural place. This and the absence of TV, radio, electricity or telephone in their homes they believe keeps the modern world out of there lives to an extent therefore not intruding on their lifestyle, culture and beliefs.

There clothing is very plain. Simple blues and blacks are usually used for clothing with no accessories except suspenders.

The amish have a very strong sense of community, are very helpful by nature and often come to lend a hand for those in need. ( ex. barn raising). They are helpful in their own communities but also very helpful outside of their own communities as well.

Amish children usually attend a one room school house. Their schooling ends at eighth grade at which time they work on the farms or in the home. Families usually consist of 6 or 7 children. Chores are divided by sexual role and the father is the head of the household. All are expected to do chores.

The amish people are often known for their woodworking skills, quilting and bakked goods. Shops in Amish communities often consist of places to go to buy or order amish goods and amish built furniture which are always well made and popular amoung modern community members.
