Amish Proverbs by Suzanne Woods Fisher

My honest, unbaised opinion?  This is one of the best books I own.  And I own WAAAYYYY too many books.  This book is inspiring, offers wisdom, is calming, is comical, and makes you think.  I love it.  When I have a couple of moments of rest, I love to pick it up and browse the pages.  It is well written, beautifully illustrated, and would make a fabulous gift!

About Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life: 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. 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.

I would love to have this book as I can always use "Words of Widom. I have always been interested in how the Amish live and think. They have a much simpler life than most of us. Not a big reader but this is something I think I would enjoy.
