Product Description

Most of us want a simpler life, and there's no better example of the simple life than found among the Amish. But what is it really like to be Amish?

In this delightful compilation of stories by more than 30 Amish men and women, you'll get the inside story on the daily life of Amish families. With humor, grace, and charm, these "plain" people tell their stories; bringing tears, laughter, and an occasional dose of Amish wisdom to your heart. You'll learn...

  • how the Amish love their animals
  • the joys of a community-wide barn-raising
  • the ways the Amish handle great tragedy
  • how the Amish find happiness in giving more than receiving

This unforgettable book is compiled by two men who know the Amish. Author Jerry S. Eicher was raised as an Amish boy and Nathan Miller is a member of the Old Order Amish.

    Horses and Boys The Pig Chase

    A Priceless Gift Beyond the Stars Special Days in My Life

    Those Lemon Bars

    Wow! This book packs a blockbuster of true stories told by Amish families. Each story begins with a Bible verse and a simple lesson follows.

    But the stories are so much more than I expected!

    Yes, it is true that they are simply memories shared. But oh, the memories are full of love and laughter pain and tears wisdom and insight.

    The Pig Chase this story is exactly what it sounds like just like life.

    Those Lemon Bars this story is funny because so much goes wrong, yet it turns out better than anyone might expect.

    Beyond the Stars spoke of confusion and despondency and hope. This story is well worth reading the story is heart-rending; the message of Gods love is vital!

    As I read these stories, I felt delighted, sad, angry, victorious but most of all, I felt a connection with Jerry, Nathan, Marvin, Joanna, Sarah, Wilbur, Delores, and the many others who were kind enough to share their life stories.

    It must have been difficult

    Thank you Jerry, and Nathan, for sharing these stories, and giving so much to us who read them. You honor us. God bless you.

    I received this book from Jerry Eicher with a request to post a review. The thoughts above are my own. Im not sure I can do the book justice with my review. I can honestly say this book is the first one I will recommend to anyone.

    A collaboration of Amish stories put together by Jerry Eicher and Nathan Miller. Told by the Amish, you will better be able to see how they really live. It took me a while to get through this book simply because I wanted to make it last and only read one story each day. Both authors grew up Amish and had a story or two of their own to tell. If you want to know the real Amish, not the ones portrayed on reality TV, you must read this book! I was given a copy of this book by Mr. Eicher for my honest review.

    Full of beautiful Amish recollections...

    SUMMARY:

    With Amish experience, both authors collect over thirty short stories and reminiscences shared by Amish men and women. Whether it be a barn raising, special events, animal antics, celebrations of life and death, family occurrences or food memories, each story is told with grace, love, heart and sometimes tears. Such a cozy peek at Amish life is sure to enlighten and slow the pace_

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Being raised an Amish boy (Jerry Eicher) and being a member of the Old Order Amish (Nathan Miller), both men are more than qualified to assemble all the recollections told and deliver them in a beautiful book. With each shared story only 2-3 pages in length, snippets can be read, enjoyed, mulled over and appreciated. Each brief chapter begins with a Bible verse relevant to the following story. Pieces of Amish life can be learned and envisioned. This book would be perfect for anyone interested in the Amish way of life.

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5) pennies

    *I received a complimentary copy of A View from the Buggy from Harvest House Publishers for my honest review*

    This book is compiled by two men who know the Amish. Author Jerry S. Eicher was raised as an Amish boy and Nathan Miller is a member of the Old Order Amish. The book has many true stories told from Amish men and women of everyday life from birth to death. The book made me laugh, cry and think about my own life in this fast pace world. It made me realize that the Amish are just like everyone else, they have their fun, problems and struggles. I also like that there is a Bible Scripture on the first page of each chapter. It is a wonderful book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read about Amish life from the Amish themselves.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.
