My parents have subscribed to all three of the Pathway Publishing magazines ever since I can remember. As a little girl I used to love the Family Life magazine and would search for their children's section as well as any recipes and puzzles leaving the other family type stories for my mother to enjoy.
But as I grew older my favorite became the Young Companion. It focused much more on courtship, teens, and everything else involved with "rumspringa"*
Today I am giving away a one year subscription to Young Companion. If you would like to have a chance to win leave a comment telling me what one of your favorite summer time activities were as a child.
I will be drawing a winner using the random generator on Tuesday July 3rd.
*Unlike the popular myth, rumspringa is not a time when Amish teens are free to choose whether or not to be Amish. It is a time when youth get to spend more time with each other socializing and also courtship. Parents and other Amish families take turns hosting Sunday evening hymn singings for the youth. There may be weekly volley ball games and working bees for them as well. Rumspringa does not end when you become a member of the church. It ends when you get married.
