This post is a part of the Litfuse blog tour.
I am glad I have had the privilege of reading and reviewing Amish Values for Your Family: What We Can Learn from the Simple Life by Suzanne Woods Fisher. It is truly a wonderful, thought-provoking book about the things we can take from how the Amish live their lives and apply them to ours. It also includes solid, biblical advice about parenting, marriage, and all aspects of family life. It will help you learn to prioritize what's truly important, simplify decision-making, slow down as a family, safeguard time together, and let go when the time comes. (It is not about becoming Amish!) The book is filled with delightful, true stories of Amish families, Amish quotes, and interesting and often funny "blurbs" from Amish Scribes. Each story also includes a Road Map: Getting There from Here section that shows how we can take the lesson from each story and apply it to our own lives.

But, wait there's more! Suzanne is running a Bill Coleman caption contest during the month of August on her blog. Title one of Bill’s gorgeous photos for a chance to win a print from Bill’s Amish Photo site and/or a copy of Amish Values for Your Family.
Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. She has many, many Plain relatives living in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and travels back to Pennsylvania , as well as to Ohio , a couple of times each year for research.
Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don't have to "go Amish" to incorporate many of their principles--simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily-- into your life.
When Suzanne isn't writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind. To Suzanne's way of thinking, you just can't take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone's underwear in its mouth.
