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.

    I see a lamb on the right of the picture, but it looks like they are actually feeding a calf with the bottle.

    My family lives in Topeka, Ks. I was wondering where the Rosanna Bauman family lives. We have a large garden and sell fresh vegetables here at our home. I also cook much like the Plain People. I really enjoyed the book The Amish Cook by Elizabeth Coblentz. I still refer to it often. Thanks for all the tips and ideas. Sue Garner
