Book Review: Amish Values for Your Family

Amish Values for Your Family: What We Can Learn from the Simple Life

About the Book:  (Back Cover)
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 livings, obedience, and more can be your family legacy - without selling your car or changing your wardrobe.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book, if you enjoy anything Amish you will want a copy of Amish Values for Your Family!  This book happens to be one of those you can read over and over and learn something new each time, it's a book to share with loved one and one to simply help you slow down your day.

There is a lot to take away from this book, each chapter is full of simple Amish wisdom, wisdom that the rest us of could learn from.  We don't have to be Amish to slow down and cherish life, but we can learn from them. 

The Amish work hard, and have a simple way of life, have you thought lately about what you could do to simplify your life?  I think that if I could get rid of some of the clutter in my life and stick to the important tasks, instead of getting side-tracked by things that don't matter it would greatly simply my life.

This is a book that I will leave out and read from time to time as a gentle reminder to myself of what I can do to make my life and the lives of those around me better.  Give the book a try, you'll be glad you did!
