Review of the book Plain Faith by Ora-Jay and Irene Eash

This book was about an Amish family who had a tragedy in their life when their two daughters died in a buggy accident. The Amish faith believe that when you die, you go to heaven so the family did have their own hope about the future. But the twist in the book was being Amish was too much for them to handle and they end up leaving to find their own faith. I know that at the age of teenagers like 16 or 18 Amish children are told to leave the faith and see if they want to live Amish or not called Rumschpringe. It helps people see if they really want to live Amish or not. They get to experience different things then if they had stayed with the Amish. If they decide to come back after leaving their parents welcome them home because it is a normal part of their culture. I believe learning experiences are great for deciding what you want to do with your life and lets you make your own decisions. Your parents can't always tell you what to do because you have to live life for yourself to see how you make it on your own and see how tough you are. Just like when my husband left the religion he grew up in and lived on his own for a while and then came back because he was more comfortable in the religion he always knew. Which was fine for me because I want to support him anyway I can.

Miley Cyrus Hospitalized For Severe Allergic Reaction

Miley Cyrus is in the hospital ... after a sudden and apparently severe allergic reaction to medicine.

Miley was in Kansas City for a concert Tuesday night on her Bangerz tour. It appears Miley was at the arena -- the Sprint Center -- when she fell ill. We're told she had a bad reaction to antibiotics.

Doctors ordered her on bed rest immediately.

Here's what's interesting ... A TMZ employee happens to be in Kansas City and just texted us an hour ago telling us Miley was out shopping with her mom ... so it seems whatever reaction she had was sudden.

The concert has been cancelled. She also cancelled her concert last Monday in Charlotte due to the flu.

Paradise Exteriors is a great company!

I was looking for new impact windows. I really wanted a well established company that knew about the different types of impact windows. I had several companies come out. Paradise Exteriors was by far the most informative and knowledgable window company that came. My salesman was so patient and explained the process from beginning to end. Within a month I had beautiful brand new Soft Lite windows. Paradise Exteriors’ secretary, Jalin is super nice and helped me get everything I needed for HOA approval. Dan Beckner, the owner came out himself and made sure I was happy with my windows. Eric Beckner installed the job and did a perfect job. I can’t believe that they got it all done in one day. I am proud to say I am part of the Paradise family!!!

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is expecting another little meatball!

The Jersey Shore star is pregnant with her second child with fiance Jionni LaValle and is due some time this fall, Us magazine confirms. "Jionni and I were trying to have our second baby since November, so every month we kept taking tests," the 26-year-old tells the publication.

As for her wedding, Snooki says it too will be held in the autumn months. "I can clarify that our wedding is still on, and we are madly in love with each other. We've waited long enough and cannot wait," she quips, adding that she wants to "look somewhat in shape" for her wedding.

"So along with still being a healthy pregnant woman, I still want to be strong and fit!" she adds.

Snooki's partner in crime Jenni "JWoww" Farley is also pregnant and is expecting her first child with fiance Roger Mathews. "I'm so excited to go through this experience with my best friend!" Snooki tells Us.

Can we expect another reality show from these two pregnant friends?!
