Author: Suzanne Woods Fisher
This charming, beautifully illustrated book is full of wise words and sayings from the Amish community.
Here is an excerpt:
- Bibles that are coming apart
usually belong to people who are not.
- It may be difficult to wait on the Lord,
but it is worse to wish you had.
- Put the swing where the children want it.
The grass will grow back.
- A father ought to help his son to form
the habit of doing right on his own initiative
rather than out of fear of serious consequences.
- More is caught than taught.
We can learn so much from short little proverbs. The Bible is full of them! In everyday life, we need these kinds of sayings to help us remember how to live. Proverbs are not only instructive, they are also inspiring. One of the sayings from my family is something I still use with my own children: If you cannot say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.
Would you like a chance to win your very own copy of Amish Proverbs? All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me a proverb, or saying, you remember from your childhood.
