It emphasizes the simplicity of the Amish lifestyle as an opportunity to draw closer to God. This devotional acknowledges that we are not all designed to live as the Amish, but we can all learn from their ways and apply these lessons to our lives.
Each day's devotion begins with a Bible verse. This is followed by a short devotion regarding the Amish and applied to our lives. These include such topics as prayer, trust, obedience, praise, and cultural influences. Then one finds a prayer starter, encouraging the reader to draw close to God in prayer.

I enjoyed these devotions. They are presented in a way that makes them easy to complete, even on busy days. Their simple lessons are easily applied to our lives, and they would encourage one to focus upon his/her relationship with Christ. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about the Amish or would like to find the time to focus upon God each day.

RagdogsAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very EncouragingDecember 15, 2013RagdogsAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Synopsis:
Let the simplicity of the Amish draw you closer to God.
In this instantly connected world, it's surprisingly easy to lose our connection to God. What's admirable about the Amish lifestyle is that it intentionally slows the pace of life so there's an opportunity to see the everyday grandeur of our great God.
Not everyone can-or should-adopt an Amish lifestyle. But the Amish can inspire all of us to slow down and simplify our lives. We need to learn to let go of our glittering gadgets in order to grab hold of something of infinitely greater value-the Divine.
The One Year Book of Amish Peace will inspire you to set a sustainable pace so that you, too, can take the time to enjoy God's gifts each and every day."
I have read quite a few books by Tricia Goyer and I have enjoyed all the ones I have read, so I was immediately interested in this devotional. This book is laid out for a year, so I haven't read the entire book, but I have read a few of the different dates and I have liked what I have read. There is a daily verse as well as an Amish proverb that goes with the topic and story for that particular day. There is even a prayer guideline at the very end of the page.
This book is very encouraging and I look forward to the next year of reading it.
