The One Year Book of Amish Peace

    I love it when I find an author that inspires me not only with their work but with their life.  I remember reading Tricia Goyer's book Night Song long ago.  It was before I had children, before I had even met my husband and before I took my dream of being a writer seriously.  I loved that book.  I passed it to my friends.  I shared it with my mom.  I searched the local bookstore for more of her work.  Years later I was reading another one of her books and I noticed the author bio.  She was a writer, a homeschooling mom and, at that time, lived in Montana.  I was a homeschooling mom and I also lived in Montana.  I was inspired.

   When I had the opportunity to help promote her new devotional book I jumped on board.  I am so glad that I did!  Fiction might be my favorite type of book but life gets stressful, crazy and unbalanced.  Devotions can be hard to fit in.  This book is perfect.  The devotions are short enough that they aren't daunting, even on a busy morning and they are full of simple wisdom, Amish wisdom and scripture.  Tricia Goyer has always caught my attention by how open and relatable she is and this book is no exception.  I love it!

 Her website and blog are also full of information on parenting, Christian living and even writing. Her tips for writers was one of the first places I went when I decided to pursue writing.

It can be purchased at:

My Goodreads review

The One Year Book of Amish Peace: Hearing God's Voice in the Simple ThingsThe One Year Book of Amish Peace: Hearing God's Voice in the Simple Things by Tricia Goyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brief, to the point and written in a very relatable way, this book is becoming one of my favorite devotionals. Each devotion includes an inspirational quote, a prayer and a verse of scripture along with the devotion itself. I love how they tie in with the changing seasons! There are even a few recipes. This is the perfect book for those seeking to fit more scripture and a bit of a slower lifestyle into their day. I love starting my day with this book, my Bible and a cup of coffee. I highly recommend trying it!

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes.
