10. They homeschool their children
This gives them good quality time with each other so they can bond and appreciate their family more. They can eliminate the high cost of tuition, travel expenses, and much more. They live like royalty in this case. They will not be otherwise corrupted by the unscrupulous behavior of the outside world. Knowledge is passed on in a calm and comfortable environment. Their children can be much more focused and will learn more in less time. Can this be one of the practical steps to take for any of us who have children?
11. Good hosts
They welcome people from all over the outside world to learn about how they live….. They won’t charge, but they do not bend their rules to accommodate a stranger. So if you should ever visit them be a nice guest. They will give you a nice room, a lot of food, sing songs and play music for you for free. Are the Amish not the best?
12. Have fun working
This is one of the envy of most people as the regular practice of society is to take work with an unpleasant attitude because for the most part, they do not enjoy their work. They have been fed this fad; come to work early, make sure you impress your boss, work for a pay raise, and get a higher education so you can get a promotion. The harsh reality is that this is like an illusion for most people- the more work they put in and the more education they pursue is the less happy they become. The Amish have found a way to eliminate all this. Not to please a boss- they are their own bosses and they have fun putting their best out in their businesses.
13.They live off the grid
This is one of the untold secrets of the Amish people. Most may think that because they live off the grid, they do not use electricity. That is not so…. They are very savvy in the technical area of electrical energy.
They use solar energy, utilize wind energy when the wind is high, and they use generators.
They store up lots of fuel and use it very sparsely. They use kerosene lamps and gas lamps for light at nights.
They stay away from television, phone, and modern technology as a way of keeping themselves away from the corruption of the outside world.
