Amish and Mennonites

I believe the title may have been secrets for plain living from the Amish and Mennonites, or something similar. I got to the podcast in a roundabout way, I was researching farmhouse paint colors.
I have to say that it is the only podcast of hers I have listened to, and I was disappointed, but I will try a few more before giving it up. The bubbliness is over the top.
Both the host and the guest speaker giggled so much that I think does the pioneering spirit a disservice.
Not everyone that would come to a self-reliance podcast is unfamiliar. Some of us come for new ideas and support, and we are not just peering in or looking to be amused by the surprise of of how plain and simple living is done.

This podcast is so wonderful and inspiring I find myself re-listening to old episodes because I missed to much information the first time around. Keep up the good work Melissa!
