Thursday on Amish Wisdom: Tricia Goyer

Tune in on Thursday at 4:00 pm Central! To listen in – go here and just click on the player in the top right corner.

I’m so excited to chat with author and fellow Toginet host, Tricia Goyer. Tricia is a prolific author (with over 24 books published, and three more on the way) and the host of Living Inspired (her show is on right before mine!). I had the privilege of being a guest on Living Inspired earlier this year – that interview is here. Tricia, a historical and contemporary fiction author and family life expert, has just began writing Amish fiction. Her new Amish series with B&H Publishers has an unique twist, it is set in Montana. Yep – there is a healthy Amish community in Montana. We’ll hear from her on what it’s been like to research for these books right in her own back yard. Join me on Thursday at 4:00 PM Central.

About Beside Still Waters: Marianna Sommer believes she knows where her life is headed. Nineteen years old and Amish, her plan is to get baptized into the church, marry Aaron Zook, and live in the only community she’s ever known.

When Marianna’s family moves from Indiana to Montana she discovers life and faith will never be the same. As she builds an easy friendship with local guy, Ben Stone, Ben not only draws her heart, he also gets her thinking about what loving God and living in community is all about.

As Marianna struggles to find “home”, she also encounters God in intimate ways. Watch the trailer here.
