  • The Amish Cook Aug. 28

    My dream is coming to reality. What I used to consider a stark negative is now not only intriguing but exciting.

    When I was six years old, my parents were among those to establish our parochial school. This is where I attended from grades one through eight. I was the first student to complete all eight grades at our new school, which we named Pilgrim’s Christian School. I only had a skip and a hop across the woods to get there. I loved school, friends, my teachers, and learning.

  • Paying the carbon debt

    Almost every day I try to read news from all over the world to gain some perspective untouched by American media.

    Last Monday, I was reading BBC from the United Kingdom. A story caught my eye: It was about criticism Prince Harry and Duchess Megan had received over using private airplanes to travel the world while also promoting greenhouse gas reduction policy.
