almost amish.....


My daughter Regina bought me some wonderful books for Mother's day. Right now I am reading the one above "Almost Amish". It is a very good read and shares so much of how to simplify ones life and at the same time become a good steward of God's wonderful creation. It is based on a Christians perspective and teaches many of the virtues  from the Amish way of life. I am enjoying reading this book and recommend it to anyone who has a interest in a more simple way of living while blessing God's beautiful creation all around us at the same time. Some of the principles she shares in this book...I find that I have already began to practice in my own life by the leading of God's Holy Spirit through reading and studying of his word....which is our most perfect guide to all truths and correction in our daily living.

Glad you're back Shelley! I want so much to simplify my life. In some ways it's easy but in other ways it's a struggle. There are so many things I am trying to put in order. I'm working on it, one step at a time. I truly want it less about me and more about Him.

Dear Shelley,

That sounds like my kind of book, since people constantly ask me if I'm Amish! I'll have to add it to my wish list.

Thanks,
