Amish Proverbs by Suzanne Woods Fisher


Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life
by: Suzanne Woods Fisher


This is a wonderful collection of Amish Proverbs. What I liked best about it was the story at the beginning of each section - something to help you apply to real life what you're reading about. My favorite proverb in the book is "Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see." Another great feature of the book is the beautiful pictures - so vibrant and brilliant. I have always had a fascination with the Amish, having grown up less than 2 hours from Lancaster County, PA. It was great to have another window into their simple lives. Suzanne is an excellent author. If you haven't already, be sure to read my review of her 1st book in the Lancaster County Secrets Series, The Choice.

About the Book:
Simplify your life with Amish wisdom

Through firsthand research and personal relationships, Suzanne Woods Fisher has collected more than 200 proverbs that uncover the rich heritage, folklore, faith, values, history, and essence of the Plain People. These proverbs serve as teaching tools and maxims for practical living--but they're not just for the Amish. They're for anyone who seeks God's wisdom and truth for everyday circumstances.

Ranging from the simple to the profound, from the serious to the humorous, these sayings will stick with you through life's joys and sorrows. With beautiful full-color photos throughout, Amish Proverbs is the perfect gift for any occasion.


About the Author:
Suzanne Woods Fisher is the CBA bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, Amish Peace, and Amish Proverbs. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, W. D. Benedict, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Benedict eventually became publisher of Christianity Today magazine. Suzanne is the host of a radio show called Amish Wisdom and her work has appeared in many magazines. She lives in California. Find out more about Suzanne at www.suzannewoodsfisher.com
