** Longing for a simpler life? Hoping to slow down and catch a breath in the midst of a busy day? **
This exclusive Amish Wisdom App helps you do just that... and more. It provides you with a daily proverb, drawn from the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition, to bring a moment of peace to your day.
“Proverbs,” said one preacher, “are short sentences drawn from long experience.” They’re small, concentrated packages that let us peek into the window of a peoples’ values and beliefs. Most every culture has proverbs that are unique to it. Often colorfully phrased, at times even musical in pronunciation, proverbs served as teaching tools for illiterate populations that relied on oral tradition—like the Amish.
Proverbs are just as useful in our life today as they are to Old Order Amish families. They’re just as relevant to us as they were to the Israelites in King Solomon’s day. They help point us toward wisdom, toward good judgment, toward God’s teachings.
One thing is certain: Your spirits will lift and your heart will calm when you receive your daily Amish proverb.
** Share your proverb, wherever you are... **
A one-tap option to instantly share your daily Amish Wisdom saying to Twitter, Facebook, and e-mail … to keep your friends and your family inspired to live a simpler life.
Suzanne Woods Fisher is a bestselling author of fiction and non-fiction about the Old Order Amish for Revell Books, the host of a weekly radio program called Amish Wisdom, a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, who was raised Plain in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. She has an underlying theme in her books–you don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles into your life: simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily, trusting in God.
