"Amish Proverbs" by Suzanne Woods Fisher - Tour, Book Giveaway, KINDLE Giveaway

Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life
Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
Publisher: Revell
ISBN: 9780800719531
Genre: Inspirational, Amish life

About the Book:

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.

My Thoughts:

This is such a beautiful book and would make not only a lovely treat for oneself, but is perfect for gift giving. "Amish Proverbs" is filled with gorgeous photograph of Amish life, all respectfully done. The pages are full of information about their beliefs and focuses on such topics as: time, money, faith, family and children, work ethic, education, words and deeds, adversity, community, character and just fun. Each section focuses on a specific topic, with a story and and then a deeper look at the beliefs and practices that surrounds that topic, followed by many wonderful Amish proverbs.

This book has made my favorites list - not only for its beauty, but for its inspirational content. I leave this book on the coffee table so that it is available to browse at any time. It has also become a topic of conversation with others when they stop by. I don't think there has been anyone that has been able to resist not only looking at the photos, but reading some of the proverbs and loving it.

Personally, I will be ordering more copies to give away to friends and family. The best part - this beautiful hardbound book runs less than $14, making it quite easy on the budget.
