The One Year Book of Amish Peaceis a daily devotional that inspires us to slow down and find ways to simplify so we can experience God in the ordinary. Each devotion starts with a Bible verse. Tricia Goyer then tells about the way we live and relates it to the Amish and their simple way of approaching life. She then ends with a prayer. Each devotion has an Amish proverb, tip or quote. The daily devotions are short enough to read in a matter a minutes. They are meant to inspire you with a simple reminder to focus on God throughout the day. The publisher's description states that this daily devotional contains interesting facts about the Amish, recipes, and information about the way the Amish handle money, rear their children, and center their lives on faith in God. I received a sample of this book but it was enough that I would like to have the entire book to use for daily devotions. Below is an example of the recipes that are included in this devotional.

You'll want to check out A Christmas Gift for Rose.
Born in the midst of the hardships of The Great Depression, Rose grew up in Berlin, Ohio, in the arms of a loving Amish family. But as she prepares to marry, she’s thrown into confusion when she learns the truth of her birth. She was born Englisch and abandoned when the family moved on in search of work.
Was she meant to be Amish or would she have been better off growing up with her own kind—Englischers? And was her intended’s gift of discovering her birth family given out of love or fear?
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
