Plain Wisdom by Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud turned out to be a great read. Miriam has grown up as an Old Order Amish woman and Cindy has not. These two women live completely different lives and hold very different responsibilities. Since Cindy is an author of Amish novels, she meets up and befriends Miriam for a closer inside look. Flipping through the short chapters of this book, you get a close insight into the many similarities that one would not realize otherwise. While so much in each of their lives are completely opposite of each other, the love of their families and God are what really prove to be the foundation that holds them together as friends.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.
This is one of my life savers. As a mother of three, with a family of five, saving money on food is a big issue. This book gives so many great dinners for next to nothing prices. This is my got to book for the hectic afternoons.
Wonderful little devotional book. This is definitely one to keep on the book shelf. As the title says its focus is on the simple way of life. A great reminder to slow down and savor the moments. We all get so swept away in the material world that is all around us today. Sometimes, refocusing helps widen our eyes to whats really important.
Great motivational read. I read through this book little by little but I must say it always left me upbeat. If you are lost or looking to recreate your life then grab this book and be swept away.
I just finished And I Shall Have Some Peace There by Margaret Roach. This book was okay. Not a page turner by any means. Its a story of how she picks up and leave the big city for the simple life. Too many words were used to repeatedly describe this situation over and over. It was just okay.
