Amish Magazines

Did you know the Amish print three magazines? One for families, one for children and one for school teachers. Did you know you can order them and have them arrive in your mail box even if you’re not Amish? It’s so much fun! For about a year now my family and I have been keeping up with the Amish in North America by reading their magazines which include articles written by Amish as well as letters and notes of encouragement. It gives an amazing peak into their unique lives as well as lots of inspiration to the Christian family!

A Productive Child is a Happy Child 


 Children need productive, hard and valuable work to do. In our current society most children spend the ages of two to eighteen just sitting around and killing time waiting to be adults. For most of them when they do hit eighteen they take off like a rocket for good and sometimes for bad trying desperately to fill this aching void inside themselves. Autism doesn’t exist in the Amish community and some say it’s diet, some say it’s a lack of vaccines, and I’m sure those play a role but I think a lot of it is lifestyle. What our society calls mild autism, or sensory issues might just be children not living a valued life full of meaning and close to nature or the symptoms of mild autism might disappear or become lessened when one feels like they are an important member of their community. As our modern society progresses children are not treated or seen as valuable, productive members of their community and hence they act like it. They are restless, they are bored, they are numb. We have life so easy now it seems like there is little we can find for a child to do to keep them busy and productive. We might have them make their bed or empty the dishwasher but these things are small time and petty and the child feels that. We aren’t relying on them, they aren’t needed. We must convince children they are needed in order for their self worth to flourish. Invest in it a bit. Get them work aprons, work gloves, work shoes if you can. So here are some ideas for children to help out around the house.

And my favorite chore for either gender, butter churning! You don’t need a churn either. Buy a mason jar, fill it with heavy whipping cream and you’re ready to shake your way to butter! Burns energy and kids LOOOOOVE making their own butter. It’s often cheaper too and fresh butter is heavenly!


Daily and weekly rhythm is the key to kids who do their chores willingly.
If your children are young (under 10) you are most likely going to have to do these chores with them in order to get them to do them and do them correctly. Don’t shy away from hard work! Your house will be cleaner and more organized and you and your children will save money, sleep better and fight less and most important your children will know they are vital to the function of your family! 🙂 Are Lying, Fake News 

In case you’re wondering, I never said this. This article is a straight up lie. I never issued the white baby challenge to “breed out” anyone. I have never said I wanted to breed out blacks, that’s an absolutely ridiculous lie. If you want to know more about the white baby challenge you can see the full explanation here 

White people exist

White people have the right to exist

White people have the right to exist as white people

They Sacrificed Everything

They sacrificed everything.
They lost their homes, their possessions, often their children and their lives.
They gave it all up to build Zion.

They tamed the wilds of Utah. The did it for their posterity.
Our ancestors sacrificed so YOU would have a better life..
And what have you done with that better life?
Some of you are giving it away, you are giving away your portion and stealing it from those who wish to keep theirs- wish to honor our ancestors and you have no right to do so.
You do it in the name government, in the name of globalism, in the name of many false Gods you follow.
Do you think God does not see? Do you think He is not fully aware how you spit on your ancestor’s memory and the sacrafice they made?
They sacrificed everything and now Zion is a place to flee.

Never Forget

Today is the 102nd year anniversary of the beginning of the Armenian genocide, when 1.5 million Christian men, women and children were systematically slaughtered by the Turks. Their genocide doesn’t get much attention because well…most people think there has only ever been one genocide, that being the Jews in the Holocaust. Unfortunately no, Armenians and Christian Ukrainians lost their lives by the millions last century. Never forget. 
Here are some lovely photos of Armenian culture…
