Amish Proverbs GIVEAWAY!!!

by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Revell Publishing

This is such a beautiful book!  My husband even picked it up and look through it and found a fun proverb:

"There is one thing more exasperating than a wife who can cook and won't, and that's the wife who can't cook and will." (page 201)

No, I am not a bad cook, he just thought that was so funny.

My grandma always says, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."  I love this proverb.  If you keep asking, or haggling or looking for whatever you need you will find it.

Price: $13.99

  1. I don't know if it's a proverb, but I like the saying Anger always has unintended consequences. It's from the book "city of ember"

  2. Jaelene Huffman this is not a proverb but I love it
    "There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family. Many are able to be 'full-time moms,' at least during the most formative years of their children's lives, and many others would like to be. Some may have to work part- or full-time; some may work at home; some may divide their lives into periods of home and family and work. What matters is that a mother loves her children deeply and, in keeping with the devotion she has for God and her husband, prioritizes them above all else."
    M. Russell Ballard

  3. I'd love to win this for my daughter. Here's a common saying, "Slow and Steady Wins the Race."
