“There’s an amusing storyline running through The Letters about an oh-so-proper Amish grandmother who allows her granddaughters to keep one book in the house (beside the Holy Bible and the Book of Martyrs, of course). The book is called A Young Woman’s Guide to Virtue and was published in 1948. The granddaughters find the book to be thoroughly old-fashioned and outdated, but surprisingly, they do pull wisdom from it as they navigate their own teenaged pitfalls. This grandmother had a way of getting her message across, loud and clear.

The Amish place great emphasis on the power of example. That’s one of the reasons children are included in all parts of Amish life—so they are constantly steeped in good modeling.

It’s encouraging to realize your example as a parent does go deep into your children’s development. Such awareness is a motivation, too, to be our best self at all times.

What changes for you today, knowing your child is watching and observing everything you do and say?” ~Suzanne~
