Ach! Kids are no sweat here. Actually, you'd need them to help run the farm. ;) So, when are you coming?

Hey Emma!


You're looking very plain!

What beauty tips can you offer the women of AFF?

Some of 'em really need all the help they can get.

Of course I do! Might I point out that you are very smart to ask. ;)

First of all, stop wasting time with shavers, eyebrow pluckers, eyelash curlers, hair curlers, face cream, perfume and all that nonsense. Get rid of your ribbons, bows, gold buttons, fancy patterns and such. Learn to rely wholly on God for your beauty! Get out in the sun and outdoors!! Pull weeds and plant seeds!! Forget the exercise machines and clubs! Just get up at 5AM and work until late. Who needs to pay for that?? Don't waste your time or your money anymore. Get exercise by work and tan by sun. Don't show anymore beauty than that to anyone but your husband.

There you have it....plain and simple. ;)

The internet is very evil. Forums are okay as long as you only get them in email format. I use my neighbors computer and electricity, so it doesn't count. Are you finding fault with me? It's that old hobgoblin of consistency that you are trying to pigeonhole me with. Well, it won't work for somebody who thinks half naked women on internet is okay but half naked women on TV is wrong!

Oh Emma... this is a slippery slope. :)

Don't worry about her, D4T... she and "her kind" have been sliding down this slope for years and seem no worse for the wear! Their holiness is contrived anyway... I have spoken to some who have walked away and OH the STORIES they told!

[you] walks away shaking their head slowly and sadly!

revrandy 05-31-2007 12:00 PM

If I was going to be going anything it would be "going fancy" or "going English" which I am neither, thank you very much!

I can see from his picture he is not holy at all. I take your warning and thank you for it. :D

Because you signature says your fictitious, and that you really are someone else........say like ILG! Got another question for ya, how can you be Apostolic Amish? Does this mean you were baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost?

My. I missed this most important post. I am not sure how I did that. It must have been providence as you must have not been ready to recieve my answer. However, here it is. Yes, I am an Acts 2:38 Amish woman. We completely believe in the Old Order Ordnung but we also believe Acts 2:38 like the Apostolics. This makes it most convenient for me to be as holy as possible, which is definately holier than you. Otherwise you would blow me off as not being as holy because of the doctrinal difference. As it is, I am much, much holier than you. Thank you for asking. Feel free to ask any other questions that may interest you or make you feel like you are unrighteous.

We most certainly do.

Trouvere 06-15-2007 07:13 PM

What I really want to know Emma is which brand of tight thick cotton
hose are the best for hiding the hair that is bunched up under them?:13loads

Well, what you really need to do is make sure they are black stockings, no matter what else you do. But if you want something seriously thick and hand-knit, I would suggest these in black (NOT silk):

Ok! Now THIS ought to be FUN! Whoo Hoo! Thank you for this thread Sister Emma!

Hey Emma what kind of shoes would we need to buy to wear those thick hose?

Why thank you, Dora. I knew this would be a great thread because I started it. I am glad you have recognized that fact. ;) But I certainly do not intend for it to be FUN!! :praying:preach:grampa

Well, they have to be black. And you have to be careful because sneakers can look too sporty. They have to have laces. Hope that helps. Make sure they are plain.

Emma Bontrager 06-16-2007 11:05 AM

I wrote this most excellent post in another thread yesterday and I wanted it to be preserved in my most holy answers thread. I am so good at writing these things up that I wanted everyone who reads my great answers to have a chance to see it.

Quote:

Well, if they hurt your feelings or you think the ordnung is stupid, you better keep your mouth shut. The bishop has the right to hurt your feelings. For example, if you can't afford the material for a longer skirt for your girls and the hemline is slightly short and he calls you on it, it doesn't matter if you are too poor. It is your own stupid fault. It's your husband's responsibility to make enough money and your responsibility to get it sewn. He could look at you snidely and say "Your skirts are too short. You need to spend some time making new dresses", implying you are lazy and make you feel like a terrible heel and if you told him you had no money for new material, it would simply be no excuse and too awful bad. Even your own preachers here know that. When folks whine about being hurt in church conflicts it's their own stupid fault. They will tell you glowing stories about how THEY were hurt and just went forward and didn't get offended at all. That's because they know what holiness really is. No money is no excuse and nothing is an excuse for saying anything bad about God's anointed even if they falsely accuse you of everything under the sun. There is never excuse for you. That's what true holiness is.

Emma Bontrager 07-09-2007 08:35 AM

Well, ILG told me that people were looking for me on Steve Epley's "I'm Back" thread. I figured that everyone really missed me. It's hard to go too long without some real conservative input that helps you keep balance in your life. As liberal as you all are, you are pretty imbalanced. That is obvious.

It is summer and I am really busy. We live according to the seasons here and the gardening is taking up a great deal of my time. I have been canning green beans and peas and putting up zucchini and summer squash mostly. But there is so much to do. We just got done making so much strawberry jam.

Anyway, I am here to help you out of your liberal mindsets, just write me and let me know. God's work is important work. Jesus stayed behind being about His "Father's Business" and I wouldn't want to let you down. So, here I am, here to balance out your life. :D:drama

Glenda B 07-09-2007 09:04 AM

Emma. did you go outside your community for your education. The language you speak, is most definately different from all other Amish that I have known?

Or did you come into the community after you completed your education and find favor with one of the young Amish Gentlemen and conform to their ways and get married?
