About the author

Plain Kansas

Rosanna Bauman, age 25, is German Baptist Brethren. She is a writer, farmer, and speaker and lives on a rural Kansas farm she shares with her parents and 4 siblings. The Brethren Church, is often mistaken for Amish or Mennonites, but the Brethren have different historical and theological roots. The Brethren Church is a "Plain" church. Members dress plainly and, like the Amish, are pacifists, but they do use cars and phones.

    Really enjoyed the pictures. Hope great-grandfather is better soon. Is Rosanna Amish? What makes me wonder is that they allow pictures.

      Thanks, Marilyn! No, Rosanna is German Baptist, a branch of the Brethren church. It is a Plain church similar to the Amish, but they allow photos and more technology.

      Susan, I’ll ask Rosanna. Does anyone else know if a child can ride in a closed cab combine?
