Book Description

Well done is better than well said.

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have been kind to you.

Some folks don't exaggerate, they just remember big.

Chances are good that during your life you've run across some good advice. And it's very likely that much of it originated with an Amish proverb. Through firsthand research and personal relationships, Suzanne Woods Fisher has collected more than 400 proverbs that uncover the rich heritage, folklore, faith, values, history, and essence of the Plain People. These proverbs serve as teaching tools and maxims for practical living--but they're not just for the Amish. They're for anyone who seeks God's wisdom and truth for everyday circumstances.

Ranging from the simple to the profound, from the serious to the humorous, these sayings will stick with you through life's joys and sorrows.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling author of Amish Peace, as well as many novels about the Amish, including The Choice, The Waiting, The Search, The Keeper, and The Haven. Suzanne is a Christy Award nominee and is the host of an internet radio show called Amish Wisdom. She lives in California.

5.0 out of 5 stars INSPIRING August 31, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This small book is both inspiring and enlightening. I especially enjoyed the commentary before each topic as it was educational in helping one to understand the ways of the Amish. I found myself reading each page with a highlighter on hand so that I could easily recall specific proverbs. Truly words to live by.

I really wanted a collection of Amish quotes, but this book contains a bit of history as well. I may have been better off just Googling Amish quotes.

More About the Author

In no particular order, Suzanne Woods Fisher is a wife, mother, writer, lifelong student of the Bible, raiser of puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, a gardener and a cook...the latter two with sporadic results.

Suzanne has loved to write since she was a young teen. After college, she started to write for magazines and became a contributing editor for Christian Parenting Today magazine. Her family moved to Hong Kong for four years, just as the internet was developing, and she continued to write articles in a 44-story high-rise apartment, sending manuscripts 7,000 miles away with a click of a key.

After returning from Hong Kong, Suzanne decided to give her first novel a try. For four and a half months, she worked on an antediluvian computer in a cramped laundry room. She didn't even tell her husband what she was up to. When the novel was completed, she told her family at dinner one night that she had written a book. "That's why there's no food in this house!" said her slightly insensitive sons.

Undaunted...Suzanne found a small royalty publisher for that book and wrote three more (all earned multiple awards). With help from an agent, she went on to sign contracts with Revell Books for twenty plus books.

Writing, for Suzanne, is a way to express a love of God and His word. With every book or article, she hopes readers get a sense of what faith really looks like in the daily grind. She hopes they realize that life can be hard, but God is good, and never to confuse the two.

Suzanne can be found on-line at: www.suzannewoodsfisher.com
