Goyer, Tricia. The One Year Book of Amish Peace. Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. 2013.
Part of “The One Year” series of devotionals, The One Year Book of Amish Peace joins that line. Familiar with the Amish lifestyle, the author, Tricia Goyer, sets each devotional to correlate with Amish living. Filled with Bible verses, simpler yet perhaps deeper ways of thinking, along with Amish tidbits and thoughts, The One Year Book of Amish Peace explores God’s world in a different approach.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Though I only received a sample of this devotional book, I found it to be thought-provoking in many ways. It seems to focus on the simpler ways of life (taking time with friends and family, helping others, enjoying the many blessings we do have, as well as the “sweets” in life-specifically Whoopie-Pies). Each devotion pairs with an Amish custom followed by a prayer. I appreciated the brevity of each lesson yet enjoyed the deeper connection it allowed. I was also intrigued that it belonged to “The One Year” series of devotionals which I may now consider.
