Plain Wisdom

Sometimes the very best kinds of friendships develop over distances. Too often times we fail to be the very friend we are looking to find in others, but we do need to find ways to develop the friendships we have and one of the best ways to do this is to do a kindness when they're not expected.

Remember that when your friends aren't perfect, be grateful - because if they were, you'd be the only one in that relationship who wasn't.

Cindy Woodsmall is a New York Times best-selling author of several novels whose connection with the Amish community has been featured on ABC Nightline and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. She shares her insights as a wife, mother and friend along with Miriam Flaud, who is an Old Order Amish woman who has lived within one of the most structured societies in the United States.

Cindy and Miriam have co-authored the latest novel called Plain Wisdom, in which they share how their differences have brought about a sense of respect and gratitude for one another in the very different lifestyles that have led through their lives and how that sweet blend has transformed their friendship in very delicious ways.

Throughout the book are scripture quotes in which each author gets an opportunity to share their insight or wisdom with us, their captivated audience. Whether it's through short stories shared over coffee and by the fading light of the sun, we are warmed in their love and hope. What a treasure this book was to read today and to have the opportunity to share with you, my readers.

I received this book compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers for my honest review and was so captivated by the stories of these two amazing friends that I felt I was intruding on a private conversation. Yet in the midst of the pages of this book, I found hope, redemption, forgiveness, faith and most importantly love, not only for their friends and family but for the differences that make us all unique and who we are with our own stories to share.

I loved learning more about the Amish community and feel we have so much to learn from them and in respecting their ways of living. This book rates a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. This book is available in paperback, and some eBook formats . I invite you to join in this wonderful book and promise you that it will warm your heart with friendship and love. What a great gift to offer for that special friend or family member in your life!
