Book Reveiw - Amish Values For Your Family by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Publisher's blurb:
"Amish Values for Your Family is charming! It will lift your spirits and bring you closer to the Amish."--Cindy Woodsmall, New York Times bestselling author of When the Soul Mends
When it comes to strong families that know how to truly enjoy life together, there is much we can learn from the Amish. Just how do they establish such strong family bonds, such deeply held values, and such wonderful family traditions? In Amish Values for Your Family, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher shares the secrets of Amish family life. In this inspiring and practical book, you will meet real Amish families that are a lot like yours. Through their stories you'll discover how to
  • slow down
  • safeguard family time
  • raise children who stand strong in their faith
  • prioritize what's truly important
Amish values like community, forgiveness, simple living, obedience, and more can be your family legacy--without selling your car or changing your wardrobe.

My review: I enjoyed reading this informative and often funny book about the Amish lifestyle and what your family can do to mimic some of their values.

The way this book is organized lends well to reading bits and pieces when you have time or even during commercial breaks - kind of ironic, to read a book on the Amish while watching TV!

The simplicity of Amish life is both fascinating and appealing to me. I think I would really enough the Amish lifestyle for maybe a month or so. A way to get back to basics and enjoy life's simple pleasures and also to appreciate modern conveniences in comparison.

I would recommend this book.
