Review (and giveaway): Amish Proverbs

20 Aug

Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life
by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Hardcover: 205 pages
Publisher: Revell (August 1, 2010)
ISBN-10: 0800719530
ISBN-13: 978-0800719531

(5 out of 5 stars)

A delightful book of Amish proverbs with beautiful illustrations. A “must have” for a gift, or coffee table book. I liked some of the quotes:

  • You may as well borrow a person’s money as his time.
  • A heart at peace gives life to the body.
  • Evey moment of worry weakens the soul for its daily combat.
  • To mistreat God’s creation is to offend the Creator.

Beautiful book, while it is small, it is an enchanting, spiritual read. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I give it a solid 5 stars out of 5.

I received a complimentary copy of “Amish Proverbs” by Suzanne Woods Fisher from the litfuse group for review purposes.

    It looks like it is packed full of interesting and sometimes funny but true proverbs. For example, one that I read is … it is what you learn after you know it all that counts.

      While you can read it in one afternoon; I think that it is a book that you will want to return to for inspiration.
