Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life, by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Amish Proverbs

Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life, by Suzanne Woods Fisher, is a simple, sweet, and inspiring read.

While I don't share their beliefs, I certainly appreciate the wisdom of the Amish. This collection of lovely proverbs covers topics such as Time, Money, Faith, Children & Family, Work Ethic, and more. While many are serious and faith-based, more are simply steeped in good old fashioned common sense, subtle humor, and fun wordplay.

Regardless of religion, certain virtues shine in all of us. This fun read helps us remember what's important. The lovely photos and chapter intros sharing snippets of Amish life kept it varied and interesting. I enjoyed it a lot.
