"After three hours of chores, breakfast, phone calls, and getting mail ready, it was 9:30 by the time I got to sewing. I sewed three blouses before noontime."
As an Amish wife and mother of six, Lena Yoder has plenty of ways to fill her time.
"I helped with the afternoon milking, baked two different kinds of cakes, made two pizzas, and got everybody ready to take supper to school for the teachers."
But amid the endless tasks to complete and challenges to overcome, Lena's simple joy and deep faith are ever present in these brief, first-person accounts.
"I am thoroughly enjoying these days at home...Our family is filled with love...I could never list everything I am thankful for."
These unassuming glimpses of Amish life will touch your heart and inspire you to seek the simple thingsa loving family, a good day's work, and a grateful heart.
Lena Yoder, author of The Tastes of a Farmers Wife (a cookbook), lives on the farm she was raised on in a large Amish community. She and her husband, Wayne, farm their land, raise their six children, and participate in the life of the Old Order Amish church. Their desire is to live for Christ daily and let His light shine through them.
tammycookblogsbooks5 Stars Out Of 5My Life as An Amish WifeDecember 1, 2015tammycookblogsbooksQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Lena Yoder is a member of an Old Order Amish community. She and her family make a living off the land. After reading My Life as An Amish Wife, it is obvious that Lena is very grateful for what God has provided in all aspects of her life. She says her goal is "to live for Christ daily and let our light shine for him."
I looked forward to reading this book. I have enjoyed reading The Amish Cook newspaper column over the years so I hoped this book was like that. It is very similar in the way it chronicles the author's life. This book takes place over a span of seven years. Lena writes with quite a positive and sometimes humorous, view on life.
I think anyone interested in the Amish culture will enjoy this book. Lena wrote something that really stuck out to me. She said the only thing that we can take to heaven is our children. That is so true but I had never thought of it before. They can go to heaven with us, just like anyone else, if we share about the salvation of Jesus and they accept him as their Saviour. I would recommend checking out this quick, easy read. I received a free copy of this book from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
