The Amish Cook – Grilling with the Yoders, April 23, 2019

BY GLORIA YODER The house is quiet, yes the children are all tucked into bed, sleep will wait for me. I just had to give you a quick invitation to join us as we enjoy dinner with the Lehman family. Everyone in our church has a special place in our hearts; the Lehmans are no exception. The Nathan Lehman family shares our vision of reaching out to troubled children. In fact, they have a beautiful family of four children by adoption. A couple months ago when Daniel and Nathan had been cutting up meat in our annual hog butchering, they came up with the idea...

The Amish Cook – Playdough at the Yoders – April 16, 2018

BY GLORIA YODER For weeks or even months, we’ve all been waiting for the day that Grandpas would come with plans to stay for a few weeks. The day had actually arrived.

Hastening down the hallway, I quickly scooped him up to keep him from waking the other children. “You precious little fellow,” I mused, feeding him. Soon he was sound asleep. The bed felt oh, so good as I nestled down once more, pulling the covers up close. One thing was sure, I felt incredibly thankful to know that Daniel would be going with me in the morning when we planned to go for vaccinations for the foster children. Now if there is something that I just don’t like, it’s watching a needle being poked right into my little darlings’ plump thigh, yuck; on the reverse side, I’m oh so thankful for vaccinations, a means of controlling so many horrible deceases! The next hour consisted of jumping out of bed  soothing Elijah, and talking to God between drifting off to sleep every now and then. Did he have a burp or was something else bothering him? At last, it was time to tackle my mental morning list. Daniel helped  watch the children while I...
