Plain Wisdom


Best-selling novelist Cindy Woodsmall might seem to have little in common with Miriam Flaud, a woman immersed in the culture of Old Order Amish. But with nine children and almost 60 years of marriage between them, Cindy and Miriam both have found the secrets to facing life with strength and grace. Whether enduring financial setbacks, celebrating new babies and times of prosperity, grieving the crushing losses in the deaths of family and friends, or facing disappointments with their respective communities—through it all they find guidance for each day by looking to God. 

With poignant recollections, unexpected insights, and humorous tales, the two women welcome you into their unique friendship.  You’ll also gain a rare glimpse into the traditions and ways of the Amish as Miriam recalls special occasions and shares family recipes throughout the book.
 
Plain Wisdom is a heartwarming celebration of God, womanhood, and the search for beauty that unites us all. So grab your cup and your quilt and settle in for a soul-comforting read with Plain Wisdom. 

My Thoughts:

Being able to take a peak into the lives of the Amish people is very exciting since they are so protective.  Cindy and Miriam both share many things regarding their lives and families. Yes, there is a difference in the lives of these precious  people. But they are just like everyone else, dealing with ups and downs. There are many Bible verses throughout the book, that relate to the nuggets of wisdom shared by both of these ladies. Included in the book are family recipes from both ladies.  This is a wonderful book, that I would recommend to anyone.

I received an advance copy of this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. All opinions expressed are my own.
