Capture the simple peace of the Amish in your own life

You don't have to become Amish to make personal peace a reality. Organized around five central themes in Amish life, Amish Peace shows you how you can cultivate a simple life of love, gratitude, and faith in the midst of a very complicated world. It includes real-life stories and examples of Plain People, Amish proverbs, and fascinating facts about Amish communities. Each section also contains questions for reflection and action, outlining things you can do in your own life that "make for peace."

"Fisher plants the reader inside Amish living rooms, barns, kitchens, and schoolhouses while distilling the best of what Plain life has to offer."--Erik Wesner, author, Success Made Simple: An Inside Look at Why Amish Businesses Thrive and the Amish America blog

"You will not only learn about this unique subculture, but you will also be inspired to live a life of peace."--Joel Kime, pastor, Faith Church, Lancaster, Pennsylvania

"Suzanne offers us a glimpse into a world of peace, serenity, and total commitment to family and God. This book just might change the way you live your life."--Glenda Lehman Ervin, vice president, marketing, Lehman's
