Suzanne Woods Fisher has collected more than 200 proverbs that cover the rich heritage, folklore, faith, values, history, and essence of the Plain People. The proverbs are used as teaching tools and practical living among the Amish—but they are not just for the Amish. Many of them are relevant to us in our daily lives.

Interwoven with the proverbs are beautiful pictures of Amish people, buggies, quilts, farmland, and more, and a few short stories about different people associated with the Amish and how they used the proverbs to apply to their lives.

My maternal grandmother was Amish, so I was quite familiar with most all of these proverbs as they were passed down from my grandmother to my mom, and from Mom to me, and many of them live on as I pass them on to my children. Some of them I had forgotten, but I laughed when I remembered Mom saying that proverb.

AMISH PROVERBS is a beautifully done hardcover book that will make a beautiful gift for any occasion to someone in your life who is interested in the Amish lifestyle. This is a book to cherish, to keep as a display on your coffee table, or an end table, and let guests thumb through it.

If you or someone you know enjoy Amish fiction—and all things Amish, then you will want to pick up a copy of AMISH PROVERBS. $13.99 hardcover. 203 pages.

the author is sponsoring a contest with a brand new KINDLE as the prize! Check out the details at the Suzanne’s website
