One Year Book of Amish Peace Devotional

I was given the privilege of reviewing Tricia Goyers book Amish Peace, a One Year Devotional. I love everything Amish. Why? Well when I was little my mom would take me to Shipshewana, IN on the way to my Grand Parents. There are just some great memories.  I really admire the simplicity of their life.

Below I’ve included an excerpt about the book and Tricia Goyers bio form her website. I have also included a pic of her new book A Christmas Gift for Rose, and some Amish recipes. If you look in my sidebar you will also see a widget for Tricia’s blog Not Quite Amish which I’ve been a follower of for over a year and had no idea they were the same. So I’m really honored to have the privilege to share this all with you.

So I received a digital download of this book and am in love. I have a Christmas gift in mind now. My favorite part is the Whoopie Pie Prayers. The author describes how whoopie pies are a special treat to Amish children and their parents know that they should be reserved for special times. She then goes on to explain how “God generously gives good gifts to His children, yet we also must trust his timing”. At the end of each devotional is also a prayer. So I love what I’ve seen and read so far and am so excited to purchase the physical copy. (my mom and grandma will love this for Christmas, shhhhh!)

In our instantly connected world, it’s surprisingly easy to lose our connection to God. This devotional taps Amish wisdom in order to help us draw closer to God and hear his voice. In The One Year® Book of Amish Peace, you’ll get a daily taste of Amish values and wisdom. Tricia Goyer shares her fascination with the Amish in a way that will inspire and encourage believers to carve out more time in each day to listen to God and experience his presence. 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. You’ll be inspired to slow down and find ways to simplify so that you, too, can experience God in the ordinary.

:About the Book:

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?

Chivalry Review


“To rise from error to truth is rare and beautiful.” -Victor Hugo

I’m not sure what I expected when I received this book. It is an eye opener and full of the honest truth. It’s one of those books that you either agree with or you don’t. The author Zach Hunter brings about the issues of todays world and their lack of chivalry. He brings about issues that we all deal with. Some of these issues are truth, honor, self control and so on. This is what I would call a heart book. It deals with the matters of the heart which we all have struggles with in one area or another. I would recommend this book to any teen or older. I believe this is a great book to introduce them to the truths of this world. This is a great book to prepare the heart and mind for the growing adult for this less than civil world.

About the Author:

Zach Hunter is a college student, an abolitionist, and an activist who fights modern-day slavery and other problems in the world today. Zach has spoken to hundreds of thousands of teens in person ad millions by television, radio and magazines. sharing about God’s heart for the hurting and oppressed.
