Amish values is a book that should be read by any family that is looking to improve their family dynamics. The one thing I’ve always admired about the Amish is their sense of family and what is truly important. One thing that really stood out is how much family means to them. They love their children, but do not spoil them the way we who are not Amish do. For this reason they don’t grow up feeling like we, the parents owe them everything they desire. They raise their family around their faith. God is the center of the home. The author shows us through examples and stories of Amish families. This is not a book where the author spouts off, “do this or that to get this or that”.
I think one of the reasons I relish their lifestyle so much is because I pretty much grew up that way. We are not and never were Amish. Yet, growing up on a farm with all of our duties were so similar to the Amish lifestyle. I was never raised to expect anything except what God gave us. I worked hard as did all of my family. It carried over to my own children, even though we left the farm behind many years ago. My parents made sure that God was the center of our life. We started our morning with devotions and we ended our evening with devotions. I was well prepared for my day ahead.
This book, with all of its examples and proverbs at the beginning of each chapter, shows that we can go back to a simpler life, yet not as structured as the Amish live, and still come out with some of the same great results.
