The Amish (/ˈɑːmɪʃ/; Pennsylvania Dutch: Amisch, German: Amische) are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships, closely related to but distinct from Mennonite churches, with whom they share Swiss Anabaptist origins. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. The history of the Amish church began with a schism in Switzerland within a group of Swiss and Alsatian Anabaptists in 1693 led by Jakob Ammann. Those who followed Ammann became known as Amish.

There are two things the Lord gave man over the other creatures. He created the ability for man to think. The other is the ability to love. I thank Him daily for these gifts, along with all the other wonderful things He created. And I thank Him for sending you to me.
Sarah Price, Fields of Corn
