The Heart of the Amish: Life Lessons on Peacemaking and the Power of Forgiveness

by Suzanne Woods Fisher I know that most of you remember the Amish school shooting almost 10 years ago. The horror of such a thing and then seeing their response of forgiveness and support to the family that had hurt them, when they, themselves, were the ones that were needing support. This new release by Suzanne Woods Fisher takes us on an incredible journey of story after story of forgiveness.

You don’t have to love Amish fiction to be a fan of this book. It’s a beautiful reminder that we all need. Society has us running to hold onto what’s ours and then fight for it when we lose it. Revenge and breaking apart of relationships is the more standard go-to for our culture. It would do us some good to meditate on forgiveness and the importance of it.

It’s a great, little, easy read. Each chapter is a picture of forgiveness told only how Suzanne could! I definitely recommend it. (Link is in the pic above).

Thank you, Revell, for this great book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!
