Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life

As I spent time offline today I finally took the time to finish reading through Suzanne Woods Fisher's new book Amish Proverbs - Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life.

I had taken it out on a different occasion but I was in a hurry and I knew this was a book that needed time. It needed me to be able to sit and savor each word and every picture.

I think that I was meant to pick up this book today. I was drawn to Psalm 37:7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Exactly the direction that I feel God is leading me.

This book is full of Words of Wisdom dealing with: Time, Money, Faith, Children & Family, In Word & Deed, Work Ethic, Handling Adversity, Education, Community, Character and Just for Fun.

About Amish Proverbs: 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 Suzanne Woods Fisher: Suzanne Woods Fisher is the CBA bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, Amish Peace, and Amish Proverbs.
