The One Year Book of Amish Peace

Author: Tricia Goyer
Publisher: Tyndale
September 2013
ISBN: 978-1-4143-7980-7
Genre: Devotional

Let the simplicity of the Amish draw you closer to God.

In this instantly connected world, it’s surprisingly easy to lose our connection to God.

What’s admirable about the Amish lifestyle is that it intentionally slows the pace of life so there’s an opportunity to see the everyday grandeur of our great God.

Not everyone can—or should—adopt an Amish lifestyle. But the Amish can inspire all of us to slow down and simplify our lives. We need to learn to let go of our glittering gadgets in order to grab hold of something of infinitely greater value—the Divine.

The One Year Book of Amish Peace will inspire you to set a sustainable pace of life so that you, too, can take the time to enjoy God’s gifts each and every day.

THE ONE YEAR BOOK OF AMISH PEACE is a book full of daily devotions, dated, so you never lose track of what day you are on. They include an Amish proverb, a Bible verse, a devotion, and an short prayer. Each devotion is about a page in length, making it the perfect size for a quick devotion centered around God and the Amish.

This isn’t a deep Bible study type book and isn’t intended to take the place of your Bible study. It is a devotional, taking less than a minute or two of your time.

I love reading devotionals. They are just perfect for one-on-one moments with God when you need a quick pick-me-up, or a moment of God-time. This book fulfilled my expectations, with cute stories, applicable verses and proverbs, and a prayer (though I add my own additional comments there.)  THE ONE YEAR BOOK OF AMISH PEACE would be a perfect devotional for the Amish fiction fans on your Christmas list, or for yourself. $15.99. 400 pages. 5 stars.
