Book Review~The One Year Book of Amish Peace

If you've ever read any of my book reviews of Amish Fiction, you know Tricia Goyer is one of my favorite authors.  I've had the wonderful opportunity to get to know her better by being on her launch team last year too.  Tricia has written a One Year devotional published by Tyndale, The One Year Book of Amish Peace-Hearing God's Voice in the Simple Things.

The Amish are well-known for their simple, peaceful ways.  As much as I love the Amish and their lifestyle, I am not going to adopt their lifestyle.   But I can-we can-all learn from it.  In The One Year Book of Amish Peace, each calendar day has a topic-from Spring's Abundance to Your Walk, Your Testimony.  Next there is a Bible verse that goes along with the topic, and then there is the 'meat' of the topic, which can be personal stories or information about Amish customs.  At the end of the page is a relevant prayer.  At the beginning of each Season in the book is an Amish recipe-yum!

I'm really enjoying spending time each day reading The One Year book of Amish Peace.  For me it is a great combination-Bible study and Amish study!  Of course when you are done with each day's reading you can take it further and study the scripture verse more in-depth.  This devotional is a great way to remind us to slow down and keep life simple, to enjoy what God has given us.
