 An Amish Gathering Discussion Questions: Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Barbara Cameron


 

*Guide contains spoilers so don't read before completing the novellas.

 

A Change of Heart

1.  Leah's father worries throughout the story that Leah will not master the skills necessary to become a good Amish fraa. At what point does he begin to realize that Leah's stories are much more than just a frivolous waste of time?

 

 

2.  Aaron agrees to read Leah's books as a way to get close to her. What are some of the things Aaron learns about Leah by reading her stories?

 

 

3.  Auntie Ruth nudges Leah and Aaron together by writing notes to each of them. What do you think would have happened if Ruth hadn't done this? Would they eventually have found their way back to each other? If so, who do you think would have initiated a get-together?

 

 

4.    Leah's Englisch friends, Donna and Clare, are not at the same spiritual place in their lives as Leah. Can it be in a person's best interest to avoid people with whom they are unequally yoked, as many Amish believe? Have you ever been friends with someone with whom you were unequally yoked spiritually? How did it affect you?

 


When Winter Comes


1.    Rebecca has felt for years that she isn't as attractive or interesting as her twin. Do you have siblings to whom you feel you come in second in some way? Why?

 

 

2.    As the oldest child in the family, Rebecca feels she has to be the caretaker. What role do you think birth order plays in a person's development?

 

 

3.    How do you personally know when something is God's will for your life? When have you been right about this? When have you been wrong?

 

 

4.    It takes a long time for Rebecca to make peace with her sister's death. What would you say to someone who is having trouble coming to terms with the death of a loved one? What do you feel God wants us to learn from the death of someone we love?

 


A Place of His Own

1.    When Josiah arrives in Paradise, he's determined not to depend on anyone else. Has there ever been a time in your life when people let you down? How did you learn to trust again?

 

 

2.    Amanda is a "fixer" -- she's eager to solve everyone's problems. What lesson did she learn in the story?

 

 

3.    Although it's not stated in the story, do you think Josiah asked for and accepted God's forgiveness? Why or why not?

 

 

4.    Sometimes it seems easier to blame God for our troubles than to ask Him to help us during times of hardship. Why do you think we tend to do this? What should we do instead?
