For readers who long for strong families that know how to truly enjoy life together, there is much to learn from the Amish. Values like community, forgiveness, simple living, obedience, and more can be your family legacy--without selling your car, changing your wardrobe, or moving out to farm country.
In Amish Values for Your Family, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher shows how you can adopt the wisdom of the Amish when it comes to family matters. In this inspiring and practical book readers will find charming true stories interlaced with solid, biblical advice about parenting, marriage, and all aspects of family life. As readers get an intimate glimpse into the everyday lives of real Amish families, they will learn to prioritize what's truly important, simplify decision-making, slow down as a family, safeguard time together, and let go when the time comes.
I enjoy reading about the Amish, and this book was no exception! I loved how it was written as a devotional, but you were also able to read it straight through as a normal book. Each chapter had a story with the lesson for that chapter, a review with some questions so the reader can apply the lesson to their life, and some random quotes from readers. I enjoyed the wide variety of lessons, and the simplicity of them! Most of the lessons were things we should already be applying in our lives, we just don't think about it. Definitely give this book a chance if you want to read something new!
I received this book free for review from Revell blog tours. I was not required to give a positive review, but simply express my true feelings.
