Millions visit "Amish country" each year to enjoy the relaxed family atmosphere of this unique culture. What can we as "English" (non-Amish) people learn from this lifestyle?

Each reading features a brief story of the Amish, providing a "behind the scenes" insight into their culture; a spiritual lesson, accompanied by scripture, drawn from the story; and a "bonus" of an Amish witticism or recipe. Now readers can enjoy the peace and quiet of Amish country anytime, anywhere.
My Thoughts On The Book: Loved! Loved! Loved it! This book is a wonderful mixture of scripture, quotes, Amish stories, and wonderful Amish recipes. I cannot wait to try the recipes out. No matter what religion you may be this is a refreshing book to uplift your spirit. A must have and it would be a great gift for a dear friend.
Everything about this book, from the layout and design, the background colour of the pages, the decorative touches and photographs, is a delight to the eye.
The devotional content, which is even more important, is based on the Amish way of life and of looking at things, which can certainly help those of us who do not live the Plain Life but are faced with the stresses and burdens of a very different way of living.
Short and sweet, and therefore much more likely to be sustainable as a book of devotional reading, we are treated to anecdotes, sayings, quips, recipes (oh my, the recipes! Yum!) as well as short Biblical quotations for two whole months worth of daily readings to amuse, challenge you and make you think what you need to work on as you progress on your life's pilgrimage to Christ.
A delightful book indeed.
