Wanda’s Journal

Keeping True

One of the things I most admire about the Amish way of life is the dedication they have for keeping true to their faith. While the Amish and other Plain groups would be the first to admit they aren’t perfect, their modest way of life and deep faith in God provides us with a model of how we might simplify our own lives in order to live better, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
The Amish way of life offers us ideas on how to live a slower-paced, satisfying life, with less dependence on modern things, and more emphasis on God, family, and friends.
I’ve had many personal experiences with the Amish since I began writing. Our time spent together has not only drawn me closer to the people I’ve come to know and love, but it’s given me a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s amazing love. My Amish friends have inspired me to live my life a little more simple, while keeping true to the things that have eternal value.

  1. Your books give me peace I truly need in trying times. While I read, I feel I have friends and guidance. Thank you for writing these wonderful books that have amazingly coincided with my life and helped me through some struggles.

  2. Wanda thank you for your books and that you put so much research into them to make them as close as your can to Amish traditions, lifestyle, morals and of course yummy Recipes. An chance to escape to a simpler time, a simplier way of life, where people are there to support and life each other up, to help with projects.

    I grew up with Sunday family dinners, any big project family came together. All family both sides and the work was done in a timely manner and while it was work it didn’t always seem that way. We helped friends, neighbors, and others in need. Today’s world seems to move away from this and I’d love to help bring it all back.

    your books are a daily reminder to me not to get caught up in the hub rush of today’s world. Take time daily for others as well as myself. to be silent listen to nature and what it has to say instead of just taking it for granted, to be thankful for all the Lord sends (even th troubles) and to turn my troubles over to Him. I can not do it on my own

    Your books also give me an escape to a simpler time

    Thank you

    Dear Wanda,
    Denki for your books. They have brought me much comfort in reading. I have a brain tumor. The Dutch word for ” milk” is “Millich.” “The milk” is “die Millich.”

After reading them all I gave them to a friend of mine who also is an Amish/Wanda Brunstetter fan?When she completes reading them she will pass them to someone else, and so on.
