The One Year Book of Amish Peace & Facebook Party #sponsored #OneYearAmishPeace

I received a copy of The One Year Book of Amish Peace for review purposes.  All opinions are my own.



In our instantly connected world, it’s surprisingly easy to lose our connection to God. This devotional taps Amish wisdom in order to help us draw closer to God and hear his voice. The One Year® Book of Amish Peace, you’ll get a daily taste of Amish values and wisdom. Tricia Goyer shares her fascination with the Amish in a way that will inspire and encourage believers to carve out more time in each day to listen to God and experience his presence. This daily devotional contains interesting facts about the Amish, recipes, and information about the way the Amish handle money, rear their children, and center their lives on faith in God. You’ll be inspired to slow down and find ways to simplify so that you, too, can experience God in the ordinary.

My Thoughts:

Each day of this devotional includes a Scripture reading, a devotion with Amish insights, an Amish proverb and a short prayer.  These are not so long that they take a lot of time to read, but are thought provoking and a great way to start off your morning (or to end a busy day).

I plan on reading it all the way through when the New Year arrives, so I've only read a few of the entries.  But what I have read is a great encouragement to me, especially since this is such a busy time of year and things can feel a bit stressful.  It soothes the soul to shut out all the outside distractions and noises for just a few minutes and focus on what is important.  That is a wonderful take away from the Amish culture:  to slow down, focus on the important things, and tune out the distractions.  

One of the proverbs that spoke to me lately was this one because it applies to a situation I've been trying to be patient about.  It's hard, but sometimes we just have to wait and see what God brings.



Other Amish proverbs are definitely thought provoking and words that I have found to be true in my life at some point. They are definitely relatable.
