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 loved todays post from Rosanna. If I were traveling in their area, it would
    be great to visit their farm. I wish the whole family a blessed Easter.

    Interesting- your write up is on stray animals as a cat showed up today on our 1.89 acre place. I have six male outdoor cats, and can’t tell if this stray is female or male. We have a rule to keep the boys as there is no multiplication this way. If a female cat tries to stay, we ask everyone in our area if they want her. Often a friend/neighbor or friend of a friend will adopt any stray girl kitties.
    For a while we had goats, & true to your findings, when we had baby goats, people came from all over to see them.

    I am crazy about Rosanna”s wonderful stories. It warms my heart
    that there are still family’s who live this perfect life. I hope her family has
    a wonderful Easter.

    Thank you for this wonderful sharing. I stumbled across this quite by accident reading a linked recipe and this just warmed my heart and made me miss springs at my uncles farm. We went to adore all the new babies and of course visit my uncle :-)
    Thanks for sharing.
