The Heart of the Amish: A Habitual Practice

I’m celebrating the release of The Heart of the Amish by sharing fun facts and bits of wisdom about the Amish and forgiveness.


A Habitual Practice

The Amish practice forgiveness right from the start, modeling it to their children, turning negative thoughts into positive ones, being the first to extend the olive branch to others. Forgiveness is a habitual way of thinking. They believe that life isn’t fair—the toast burns, the milk spills, the car breaks down.

How have you been impacted by forgiveness? Submit your story of forgiveness (250 words of less) to info {at} suzannewoodsfisher {dot} com. I’ll pick a story to share on my blog next week and the winner will receive a copy of The Heart of the Amish! 

Note: To protect the privacy of those in your story, I will change names and other important details if necessary. Once you submit the story, you are giving permission to repost on my blog.
