AMISH PROVERBS - Book Review & Contest!

A couple  months ago I reviewed an amazing book, The Choice by Suzannne Woods Fisher. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was THRILLED when LitFuse contacted me to review Suzanne's next book, AMISH PROVERBS!

I live in Amish Country, PA so I am well aware of the wisdom of my "plain" neighbors. Their lives are amazingly simple and their faith is pure and unshaken. I have often thought that a day on the farm with no electricity or phones may just be a blessing compared to my world of cheer practice, iPods, emails and Facebook. Did I say, "may be..." I am sure it WOULD be!

Some of my favorites in this book..
"Don't believe everything you think."
"It is better to give others a piece of your heart than a piece of your mind."
"A child can read a parent's character before he can read the alphabet."
"A truly happy person is one whi can enjoy the scenery of a detour."

Each section of the book has beautiful photographs of Amish lifestyle and a short poignant story followed by short proverbs from the Amish culture. This is a book you could leave around and pick up when you need a "pick me up." With sections such as Work Ethic, Children and Family, Handling Adveristy and many more, there is no stone is a soul's refresher course in living the RIGHT way!

Suzanne's Amish Proverbs just hit the shelves. To celebrate she's giving away a KINDLE and throwing a party! Let the fun begin. See below for info and links.
