USA only


An Amish girl who longs to travel...Rachel Miller dreams of traveling beyond her Amish existence in Jamesport, Missouri. To satisfy her wanderlust, she sends letters to the people she reads about in the Budget, the Amish newspaper, and asks that they consider mailing her a simple postcard in return. Her collection of correspondence from various Amish communities isn't as exciting as traveling, but it keeps her occupied, especially when one of her communicants routinely responds. His name is David Lapp, of Seymour, Missouri, and she soon feels as if he knows her better than her own beau. Too bad she is already promised to Obadiah. 

An injured young man on the mend...Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, David Lapp moved to Seymour, Missouri, as part of a "man swap." The transition was going fine until a serious buggy accident landed him in the hospital, where he nearly died following surgery on his broken leg. After extensive therapy, he has lingering mobility problems and is still struggling to find his place in the world. When he realizes that his spirited pen pal, Rachel Miller, lives in a community where closed buggies are used, he decides on a whim to move there, hopeful for a fresh start. 

A shared desire to break from rigid tradition...Rachel never expected to meet David Lapp in person. Even less did she anticipate his intentions to court her. As their friendship moves from the written page to in-person encounters, they discover that the chemistry in their correspondence was real. But what will this mean for the future? Following their hearts, and God's leading, will require no small amount of sacrifice and significant life changes.

  3. I can so relate to Matthew 6:34. When I have a tendency to worry about tomorrow, I hear a small voice telling me to, "Be Still and Know that I am God". I also enjoy your Bible Verses very much. Thanks for sending them.

  8. Entering for someone else: We live near Iowa Amish country, and I think the "what do they DO" question goes back a century, when people made a LIVING not by making money, but by providing enough for their family to eat. At least that's my take on it.

    Thanks, great pics…a lot like the houses in our Amish territory near the MN border.
