We hope you’ve been enjoying March’s Amish Wisdom posts! As we look towards the Easter holiday, we hope your thoughts are filled with reflections on new life, fresh starts and redemption, themes captured in so many of the Amish fiction books we read. It’s one of the reason we love Amish books so much – they contain messages of hope and affirmations of the values we hold dear.
Here is a look at the posts we have planned for next week:
- Monday’s Book Nook: We’ll read an excerpt from Patricia Davids’ new book, Amish Redemption.
- Tuesday’s Travel Tips: Amy Wallace takes us on a recent family trip to Shipshewana, Indiana.
- Wednesday’s Ask the Amish: Do all Amish people use the term “Englischer?”
- Thursday’s Beyond the Bonnets: We’ll learn something new about the Amish lifestyle.
- Friday’s Cook’s Corner: Stop by for another delicious Amish-inspired recipe.
And make sure you saw all of this week’s past posts….Wanda Brunstetter shared the first chapter of her new book, The Decision, with us. Gayle Roper showed us the sights of Spring in Lancaster County, PA and Kate Lloyd told us why the Amish choose to dress “plain.” In our Cook’s Corner, we shared a classic recipe for Coconut Cake from the beloved Mennonite Community Cookbook and our Amish Scribe let us know whether or not Amish women ever cut their hair.
