:Life in author Loren Beachy's Amish community brims with old-fashioned box socials, smart-alecky students, and pranks involving pink duct tape and black pepper. Meet the young women who manage to be late for church twice in one day and the man who plans to fight drowsiness by jogging beside his horse and buggy. Cheer for Beachy and his cousins in cut-throat baseball games, and join community members as they surround and support a family in their loss.
With the witty warmth of small-town storytellers like Garrison Keillor and Jan Karon, Beachy invites readers into his life as a creative, wise, and wisecracking Old Order Amish schoolteacher and auctioneer.
Hear straight from Amish people themselves as they write about their daily lives and deeply rooted faith in the Plainspoken series from Herald Press. Each Plainspoken book includes ?A Day in the Life of the Author? and the author's answers to FAQs about the Amish.
Loren Beachy is an Old Order Amish auctioneer, schoolteacher, and newspaper columnist. He lives with his parents and eight siblings in northern Indiana and enjoys fast horses, strong coffee, and hot peppers.
