Publisher's Summary

Of all the gifts that Jesus left us, his peace is most elusive. We long for it in our homes, in our relationships, in our life situations. One place we can look and see "living peace" is in the lives of the Amish. But you don't have to become Amish to bring these simple, practical ways of living into your own life--and make personal peace a reality. Organized around five central themes in Amish life, each section will include real-life stories, callouts of Amish proverbs, and interesting facts about Amish communities. Each section will also contain questions for reflection and action--things you can do in your own life that "make for peace."

I Learned So Much About A Culture & Tradition

I really enjoyed this audio book and learning so much about a culture, tradition and people right under our noses. There are so many things to learn and appreciate from the Amish. It should show us if nothing else to not judge a book by it's cover.

On my 3rd listen. Great book.

A simple guide to living a simple life. She gives guidelines for a life of less and more. Less hurry, worry and bother, and more love and joy and peace.
