I know some don't agree with the Amish and their reported views on women, but that aside, there is something to be said about the simplicity in simple living.
Author and Christian environmentalist Nancy Sleeth wrote in her book, Almost Amish: “To air dry clothes by choice is countercultural. And who, more than any other group in twenty-first-century America, is both countercultural and committed to air drying clothes? Has intact families? Healthy communities? Gardens, home-cooked meals, and uncluttered homes? Restrained use of technology, strong local economies, and almost nonexistent debt? Most of all, what group has kept simplicity, service, and faith at the center of all they say and do? The Amish! All of which led to my epiphany: few of us can become Amish, but all of us can become almost Amish.”
