Plain Wisdom: An Invitation into an Amish Home and the Hearts of Two Women
Plain Wisdom: An Invitation into an Amish Home and the Hearts of Two Women by Cindy Woodsmall

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I really loved this book. It's a funny thing how God works His will and direction into our lives without our ever understanding unless He shows us.

Cindy Woodsmall is my favorite author of the Amish genre. Month's ago I bought the book "Plain Wisdom" I had been so excited to purchase it and surprisingly the book made its way to my shelf without being read. I kept going to my shelf of books and pulling out books to read and for some reason I kept putting off reading this book.

I picked up the book this week. I am going through a very trying time right now...one of the lowest points of my entire life. I began to read and then to cry as the realization that God had this all in his plan for me. He didn't want me to read this book months ago. He knew I needed to read it now!

This book has little nuggets of wisdom through the entire book. I was so blessed by the insight that was shared by co-authors, Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud. If you are looking for encouragement or if you're questioning life in general, this is a good book to read. With heartwarming stories, admittance of failures and scriptures to back up the truths that God has shown to them, this book is sure to touch your soul and life your spirits.

"God knows how to heal the brokenhearted and how to give beauty for ashes" -Plain Wisdom p. 143

  1. I went to Amish Country a couple of years ago. I love it there. I have never read any books by Beverly L. But they look interesting! I should get one soon to try it!
