Wanda’s Journal

Offering of Prayers

In my novel, The Robin’s Greeting, many scriptures were included in the story that helped the characters deal with feelings they struggled with. God’s Word also helped the King family deal with several unpleasant things that had been done to them.

In addition to studying God’s Word, praying faithfully and fervently, helped Belinda and other members of her family get through several trials.

Reading passages from the Bible and offering prayers to God can also help us as we are faced with various situations and unexpected trials. Are there any special verses found in the Bible that have helped you recently? Do you have a special prayer request you would like to share? I, and I’m sure others who read this post, would like to pray for you.

“The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much.” James 5:16

    1. I to have lost my job to the pandemic and has given me more time to read your books. I enjoy reading them. I’ve been reading your books for about 5 years when my friend ask if I would enjoy to read them.

  1. Wanda, I absolutely love your books. I lost my job due to the pandemic and I’ve had a lot of time to read. My friend recently got diagnosed with cancer so you’re books have helped me relax.

  2. Your books are such a blessing! I do have a prayer request: I have been suffering from some long-term covid side effects and it has made it difficult to get back to my pre-covid self. Prayers are much appreciated! Blessings to you!

  3. Wanda,
    I love your books. I lost my job due to the pandemic so I’ve had a lot of time to read. My friend recently got diagnosed with cancer and reading your books have keep me relaxed because when I’m not reading I’m constantly worrying and crying over my friend. I definitely not ready to lose my friend.

  4. May G-d bless you, your daughter-in-law and your granddaughter to be able to write forever and ever. Your books are so soothing to read when all around you is so chaotic and hectic.

  5. I just love your books. I am reading The Robin’s greeting now. Since I am in a neck brace I can’t read very long.

  6. I just love your books. I am reading the Robins greeting now. Since I am in a neck brace little harder to read.

    1. I love all of your books! I am reading The Robin’s Greeting, right now. These books are a balm to my heart in a time of chaos.


  7. With the world the way it is nowadays prayers are needed now more than ever. I do scripture study too so I can have the word at the ready. Also, good music is a comfort. God bless. Happy Easter! He has risen!

  8. I believe in prayer in good times and bad times. I think we often have prayer request for help and for things and actions we want, but fail to give God thanks for all his blessings.

  9. You have no idea how many times I have prayed to God and then read one of your books either that day or a little later, and there was a verse that pertained to what I had prayed about. Instant peace came over me. I always thank God for speaking to me through your books. My husband has been severely ill for the past two years, he had another year at most to live. With God amd the power of prayer, I would not have been able to get through this. Please keep adding scriptures to your books!

  10. I love when someone mentions a Scripture Verse, it causes me to look it up so I can learn about the Verses before and After it.. I am still learning… Love Reading your Books about the Amish Families and their Faith. My go to Scriptures are Psalm 23 and Psalm 100.

  11. Scripture and prayer get me through the busy days, couldn’t do it with out God. I love the option to read good christian fiction and learn along the way about the Amish. Thank you for writitng great novels.

  12. My favorite aunt lives 1100+ miles away from me. She recently lost her husband to a combination of Covid and alzheimers. She mentioned she picked up a copy of one of your books and I told her that I love reading your books also. She reads in hard copy while I read on my kindle. We have been reading a multitude of your books over the past month (some I’m re-reading) and it gives us something to look forward to talking about (something brighter than death).

    While I keep you in prayer, would you please keep Mary in your prayers. These books have been very uplifting to my aunt during a time when she can’t get that hug from me that so I desperately want to give to her.

      1. My aunt just texted me asking what I knew of a cookbook from you! Thank you for ministering to my aunt through your simple act of kindness! (Now, hopefully she will share the recipes with me!)

  13. Have loved your books for many years now. Yours were the first Amish type books that I read and got hooked on. I don’t often post here but just wanted you to know what a blessing you are to many many people. Keep up the great work!

  14. Thank you for sharing God’s Word in your books, a great ministry!! Prayers mean so much and such strength comes from praying and believing the Bible. Your books are so interesting to read and shows how God touches our lives.

  15. I have loved reading all your books. I bought “ The Robin’s Greeting “ but have not read it yet. I know I will enjoy. God bless you and your family. ❤️

  16. Thank you so very much for the writing you do! I so enjoy them and passing them along to friends to enjoy also. Can’t wait until the next ones come out!

  17. Life has been overloaded with stress this past year. Many wonderful verses to help us through, but Psalms 23 is the chapter that I constantly go to.

  18. I am so looking forward to reading The Robins Greeting. I love all your books. Thank you so much for all your wonderful books!

  19. I would love the recipe book. I’m a plain gal and Amish cooking fits the bill for my kitchen. No high fallutin cooking for me!?❤️

  20. Prayers and belief that God will be with us thru any hardships has really helped me. I lost my mom this past February, and I know that she is an angel in Heaven. I try to stay positive and to be around those that have the same values as I do.

  21. I’ve shared your books with my Mother and she enjoys reading them. The stories allow her to “travel and meet others” while she lives in assisted living and is unable to venture out and about as she had before. I pray that God continues to speak to her heart through your sharing. Thank you.

  22. I am a big fan of Wanda’s always saying my FIRST Amish books I read were her trilogy of Amish Sisters in Ohio….My prayer request, most pressing, should I put it? is my grand daughter…who my husband and I helped RAISE from literally BIRTH to 18 years….she has been “an adult” since she blew out her Sweet 16 candles….always wanting to Go…Run…well (leave out the LONG story) she was 18 end of Nov last year but got her driv lisc first of March and took off…in a near by town but we dont know exactly where and 44 days left of HS and is not going to graduate….our hearts break for so many reasons, and our daughter too….we fear for her safety and “all”….I usually dont share…dont tell as we were brought up “dont talk/dont tell….” but Prayers are so needed and when God’s people share with others who have a heart for the hurting and need it themselves … well thanks for listening….and Wanda’s book she is offering the cookbook would be a great addition to my bookshelf…Good luck to all entering and God bless you all too…Hugs!

  23. I want to thank you for sharing your gift of story telling with the world! Your words of wisdom came to me at the needed time. Upon starting “ The Robin’s Greeting”, I read the quote on the dedication page which I immediately sent to my son who transferred to another state for his job. He is struggling with the newness of it all along with trying to find a place to call home. The quote gave him the encouragement and reminder of the power of prayer and his beliefs.
    I have always loved visiting Amish country in Ohio- Sugar Creek, Walnut Creek, Berlin, etc. One day I hope to move there fir the peaceful way of life. In the meantime I will continue read your books to feed my soul. Your books have also opened my mind to the beliefs and ways of the Amish and gives an understanding of them that cannot be found elsewhere. You remind us they are people too with struggles like any of us.

    Thank you!

  24. I loved the Amish Quilting Club books, just finished the Prayer Jars, and look forward to reading the Cooking Class (series?). My friends are surprised when I recommend this author and give them a book to read. I enjoy Wanda’s writing style and attention to detail. And I’m impressed she writes with family members. What a wonderful memory to share.

  25. God has seen us through so many trials and much loss and His abundant love and grace astounds me. I feel drawn to read through the Bible and to pray as the Holy Spirit moves. We’ve seen many answers to prayer and we’re so grateful for them all. Prayers requested for my children and their school struggles and for the mind/body/Spirit health of our family.

  26. I love your books, Wanda! Not only are they entertaining but they inspire me to try and lead a simpler life within my Christian faith. Thank you.

  27. I love reading your books. Bring such a blessing to me. I’m praying for all your Amish friends and for our world. May god help us to heal and find peace with his help.

  28. I pray that life goes well for our families and friends and and all of you! We are currently traveling back to Ohio right this minute and pray for our safety on the road! May God protect us and all others here with us.
    I love all your books and think I have them all! The Robbin’s Greeting series. Thinking of maybe reading them all again. Thank you for sharing God’s word with us.

  29. I love your books. So refreshing and clean. I love the prayers and scriptures that show up. Refreshing for my soul. Thank you.

  30. I love all of your books. Back in February when we had an ice storm I fell and fractured my left wrist and had to have surgery on it. Now I am going to physical therapy twice a week please pray that it doesn’t take forever to get back to normal. One of my favorite scriptures is Psalms 23 and also Isaiah 53.

  31. I finished reading the Robbin’s Greeting. My what an unexpected ending. I was guessing up until the end. I sure have enjoyed this series. You are a wonderful author and have so enjoyed reading yours books. I pray for you and your husband and those that you mention in your newsletter. May our Lord continue to bless you and your family.

  32. I love your books!!! I was never big on reading until I picked up your Amish stories. I started reading and look forward to each and every book you write! May you and your family be blessed as you are a blessing to others.

  33. I am keeping you, your beautiful granddaughter and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Your books are such a blessing, so I pray you keep writing for a long time. God bless you and have a wonderful day.

  34. We have been working with MDS for last 3 months in Texas. It was has much of a blessing to us. As it was to them. Maybe more. We have now idea how Blessed we are living in this Country. We were doing new builds. Before we would be remodeling. The flooding was bad but some of these people’s homes burned also. Watching the Joy and the growing belief in Christ was so heart moving.
    I wish everyone could help out to feel Christ working in lives

  35. You, your beautiful granddaughter and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. God has wonderful plans for your granddaughter. Please keep writing your books. They are such a blessing to us who read them. God bless you and keep you safe today.

  36. I haven’t read the Robbin’s Greeting but I’m super excited about getting it and finding out the “who done it”. I love reading your books and sharing them with others. My husband doesn’t read but he enjoys hearing me tell what the books are about. I’m glad you got to spend time with family in Florida. Prayers for continued healing of little Zoie.

  37. I love all of your books. The Robin’s Greeting was great! My mom is 96 years old and she really enjoys reading the books that I pass along to her. Prayers for you and your family.

  38. Before reading the Robin’s Greeting I reread the first two books so that I could refresh myself with all the details. I was very surprised at who was doing the vandalism. Often as I read your books I am helped through situations I am dealing with by identifying with different characters in the story. Proverbs 3:5-6 have always helped me to stay on track or get back on track in my Christian life.
    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

  39. There are a couple of verses that have encouraged my heart during this difficult season for our nation and globally.. One of the many good things that has happened is that I have been challenged to evaluate my life and found out that #1. The gospel of Jesus Christ is of most importance: Mark 16:15-16: And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. #2. I want to be faithful. 2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
    I am praying that each of my grandchildren will know Jesus and desire to serve Him whole heartedly.

  40. I received an answer to prayer this morning. Polyp removed on Tuesday was benign. Thank you Lord.

  41. I have almost every book you’ve written. I’ve moved into my Fifth Wheel full time and had to downsize. But I kept all of your books. My go-to passage is Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” THANK YOU for many years of inspiration and love in your stories. God Bless

  42. Sharon Copley
    Please pray for a dear friend of mine he is facing Colon Cancer
    Thank you so much

  43. I finished The Robin’s Greeting and am anxious to find out what happens next. I love the spirit of the Amish and how they are such hard workers, dedicated to their family and their faith. We can learn so much about faithfulness and forgiveness from the characters in theses books. Thank you Wanda. I enjoy your books so much


  45. With these trying times I have found that I have been praying more than usual. Praying for my son and daughter – in -law who contracted covid while 7 months pregnant. All of our grandbaby’s test have come out that he’s healthy but the doctor’s say that only the future will tell with this crazy virus. I am humbled by all the prayers our family has received. Prayer has gotten me thru many dark times and I feel blessed to have such a great life. My favorite verse is Psalm 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

  46. Prayer pulled me through this past year and reminded me that I was not alone. The Robin’s Greeting was a wonderful conclusion but I was sad to see it end. And what a surprise ending!

  47. Thank you for the books you write.
    They are so uplifting.
    I always look forward to reading new ones

  48. I just finished The Robin’# Greeting last evening. HAD to finish it before I could go to bed! At this time in the Lenten season, I appreciate so much the verse of Is. 53:5: He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Thank you, Jesus!

  49. Thank you for inspiring us through Christian writings of the Amish life that there are trials that are overcome through our relationship with God and the help and support of those that love Him.
    “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  50. Trying times like now are important to pray about. I pray that everyone is safe and healthy. I do my praying at night before bed or when I think I need to talk to God. And I read my passages too. I also read the bible when I can. Thank you for your great work and your books are the best. God bless you and your family. And I will continue to pray for little Zoie. Take care and be safe. Keep up the beautiful work your doing.

  51. May the blessings of God overflow in your life, as you minister to others through your wonderful books, you are always giving the lord all the Glory and Honor. I have been blessed again and again. I dearly love you Be safe and well.

  52. Your books are such a blessing to me. I had the opportunity to spend the weekend in Holmes County at an event with you several years ago. Also attended your book signing in Berlin the same weekend.

  53. It is great to know that we have a Father that we can take everything to. Just a little talk with Jesus makes it all right. Please pray for my church. We are trying to return after being out for a year because of the pandemic, but it’s going to take a lot of money to do all the things needed such as a thorough cleaning, PPE, touchless hand sanitizers, etc. I appreciate the prayers.

  54. I have not been able to get “The Robin’s Greeting” from my local library, yet, but I keep checking. I’m anxious to read this one. I love all of your books..

  55. Blessings in these trying times! I love reading your books over the years. Around 18 years to be exact. Always anxious to read the next! Thank you Wanda for bringing joy to all those who read your books!

  56. I enjoy your books. Friends pass them to me and I pass them on to others. We are spreading sunshine by sharing your books.

  57. I love your books. They bring peace to the rough days we are having in this world. I would rather pick up a book than turn on the tv. Peaceful and tranquillity is what I get from you my dear friend.

  58. Praying is my daily life. I couldn’t get through a single day without praying to The Lord. Knowing He hears me and cares for me is what gives me peace. Knowing that God is there to listen if I’m giving Him praise or if I’m making a request fills me with hope. The Lord is my strength!!

  59. I just started reading the Robin’s Greeting. The other two books in this series were really good. And this one does not disappoint. The beginning of the week I finished Sisters of Holmes County. This was also an excellent book. It had me guessing.

    Praying is a big part of my life. When in doubt Pray!!!

  60. Nothing is impossible with God! John1-37. No matter how stressful my life has become there is always comfort when talking with God!

  61. Right now my favorite verse for my personal life is Proverbs 11:2, “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.”

    I have a friend, Joan, whose 56 year old son is dying. Her entire family needs prayer.

  62. My special prayer request would be for folks to pray for peace in the world. Especially in the U.S., each day there is senseless shootings and innocent lives are lost. This has to stop.
    I so enjoy your writing as well as your daughter-in-law and granddaughter’s writing. Keep cranking out the books and I will continue to buy them. Great prize for this month.

  63. Love your books!
    My prayer request would be that my sister passed away on March 14 unexpectedly. She was an avid reader of your books too. We would read them and then discuss them together. She was not only my sister but also my best friend.
    My verse would be Psalm 147:3 “He healeth the broken heart, and bindeth up their wounds.”

  64. My favorite Scripture verse is Philippians 4:13. It is my life verse. My favorite psalm is Psalm 139.
    I love being reminded that God knot me in my mother’s womb. He knew me and loved me before I was born. What a God!!!!!!! Happy Easter everyone! HE IS RISEN!

    1. I haven’t gotten to read the “Robin’s Greeting” yet… I am excited to be able to soon! I am having some health issues, and have found hope in Jeremiah 28:11-15 For I alone know that plans I have for you… may all of you family and readers have a safe and Blessed Easter! ✝️

  65. I Love this series and I Love The scripture Many Blessings Coming to you and Yours On This wonderful Blessed Day He Has Risen!

  66. I agree that the scripture quoted in your books makes a special note of reality to the stories. Prayer is so important and praising is so good for us.

  67. I recently broke my right wrist and am right-handed. It was a big adjustment having to depend on my husband to help with many of the basic needs. I am able to use it now after having surgery to put in a plate and 6 screws. Working to strengthen the wrist is still a challenge, but God has been helping me. I was able to play the piano a few weeks afterwards but it was painful. One of my favorite verses is Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Another one that goes along with ministry, and when I am feeling discouraged, is I Corinthians 15:58 ” Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”

  68. I have relied on Psalms 46:10 many times in my life.
    Be Still and Know I Am God… I have handmade
    signs with this verse hanging in my home. Pillow that
    say the verse. I surround myself with it. I find it
    very comforting!
    Happy Easter,

  69. Love your books! But many are on my E-reader/Kindle. Would love to have a real book to hold in my hands to read. Blessing to you all out there. Praying for good health for our country.

  70. After reading through the posts we can see how much we all need the Lord daily. I’m thankful for praying people. My dad almost died from Covid in February but praise our God He miraculously healed him! Even the drs said he is a miracle. I know our prayers aren’t always answered in the way we want them to be, but I’m thankful He heard the prayers of people coast to coast and took this horrible virus from my dad. We all need the peace that passeth all understanding in this difficult time in our world. We must all remember God is still with us and He’s still working. Thank you ladies for sharing your hearts and thank you Wanda for giving us a way to share each other’s burdens.

  71. Your books bring me to a better place. It is a place of peace, calmness and comfort. Thank you for sharing your words and talent.

  72. This really spoke to my heart we need to stay in prayer throughout the day every day when we look to the Lord we don’t have to worry about things which we should not do anyway. When we try to figure things out ourselves that’s when we get in trouble. Thank you for your inspiration that you give us

  73. I just Love reading your books! One day I saw an Amish novel on the shelves at my Library and I thought I would try reading them! Now I can’t stop reading them!! Wanda your’s are one of my favourite Authors to request my Library purchase them! I can’t wait to read more of your books! The scriptures are are lovely touch in your books! Forgiveness is something that I admire of the Amish!!

  74. It’s a great reminder that we need to keep focused on the Lord and keep our mind on prayer and surrendering things to the Lord instead of trying to work them out ourselves

  75. Jeremiah 29:11
    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    The Lord gave me that verse during Sunday night prayer time.
    Please pray for the salvation of my husband and that my son will come back to the Lord.

  76. I absolutely love your writing! My friend lives in Sarasota Florida and had her picture taken with you. Her name is Tammy and that was year before last. My favorite verse is Psalm 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” Thank you for sharing your gift of uplifting stories.


  78. Loved the mystery that was solved in Robin’s Greeting. My verse for March was Deut. 32:4 “The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just;”. He is out rock in these uncertain days.

  79. I know first hand that prayer works. I am four years cancer free. I was diagnosed in August 2017 with stage three endometrial cancer. I also had a collapsed lung. My family and friends prayed for me daily. One of My favorite verses is Phillipians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” I love your books.

  80. I am with sorrow as my health keeps declining. I have tried to be optimistic, but sometimes it is difficult. In this season of Our Lord’s suffering, I am reminded that my hardships are trivial. This is what is important when we feel as if health, family and everyday gets to be too much to bear. This is our cross to bear.

  81. I am so happy that you include verses in your book and recipes. I absolutely love your books!

  82. During a preaching tour to the New England States my hubby and I went through Lancaster, PA, we stayed the night in a Mennonite bed and breakfast and ate at an Amish restaurant. I so enjoyed this trip, just wanted to stay longer and do some exploring. Thank you for all the wonderful books you have written.

  83. I love Wanda’s books, they have helped me find grounding during Covid and allowed me to draw closer to God during these troubling times.

  84. I have a dear friend who is traveling from Florida to Washington State with her son and they are bringing her brother who has dementia and a recent stroke and is in a wheelchair. They are concerned about his becoming agitated. She is in her 70’s and not in good health. I pray for their safety. Thank you for your prayers.

  85. Iam asking for prayers for my Stepdad he is 84 and has colan cancer and he had a scan yesterday to see if it has spread. Please keep his family in your prayers. It’s hard to face things that you cannot control, but knowing God will be there makes it easier
    Thank you and God Bless.

  86. I lost my job and I have had bad health for over a year. And no one could tell me what was wrong. I had to figure it out myself. I am going to have surgery next month to hopefully fix what has been going on. If anyone could give me healing thoughts or prayers I would appreciate it. Thank you.

  87. Your greenhouse mystery series was engaging and enlightening with the scriptures you chose to include. I enjoyed it very much! My favorite scripture is the 23rd psalm, I memorized the verse when I was a child and it always brings me comfort. Thank you for your good works in Jesus’s name, your prayers and writing are of great comfort.

  88. Wanda, I am dyslexic,when I found out I was I started reading your books. I have read everyone of them and I can’t tell you the one I like best, I think everyone of them. Thank you for taking me on these journey with you.

  89. Deut. 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. I claimed when I had Covid pnemonia. I survived it thanks be to God.

  90. I love your books and look forward to each one. My husband, son, daughter-in-law, and I are currently traveling North Carolina and Virginia and enjoying the beauty of God’s nature. Amazing how He spoke it all into existence!

  91. Your Books are nourishment to my soul! I love how clean and wholesome your books are! My Prayers are that we can heal and move forward from this co-vid! my favorite verse is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Thank You Wanda for entertaining me through your books and your books give me a great escape that we need from all the crazyiness that being going on! Blessed You Wanda and your family! I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  92. “The Lord says I will fight for you; be patient and wait.” Exodus 14:14 This bible verse has helped me through a terrible situation in my life and I have read it a lot. I do have a prayer request ; please pray for the salvation of my son Logan and my husband Joe.

  93. My husband and I are both avid readers of your books, he grew up Amish and is fascinating for me. I love the heart for God that is entwined in every story, we are churning in your Amish mystery series and I’m loving then, thank you and have a blessed Easter

  94. Wanda I love getting my hands on as many audio books of yours as possible! Thank you for writing such wonderful stories and sharing them. I especially love it when you include prayers and scriptures. Praying to God gives us peace and Helps us to trust him more and more. Being able to talk to God is truly a blessing that we should not take for granted.

    1. Wanda, thank you for including Bible passages and shirt prayers in your books. No only do both help the characters, but all offer comfort to your readers. I have chosen one that you used often in your Prayer Jar series: Philippians 4:11, “I have learned that, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.” I reflect on these words often and approach each day with peace.

  95. A current favorite verse that has been on my mind lately has been Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Please keep my family in your prayers. We just lost my mother-in-law a week ago to pancreatic cancer last week. Even though we are comforted by the thought that she is in Heaven now because she was a believer we are still feeling the grief of our loss. Sitting by her side and watching her slowly die of cancer was a painful experience for us. We could certainly use all the prayers we can get. Have a blessed Easter!

  96. I love your Books as during the stay at home and missing my friends your books have become my friends. I love the Scripture and examples that soothe and keep me calm. It’s a trying time and I love the examples of prayer and happy, calm, feelings your books bring me.
    Thank you for inspiration and wonderful feelings.
    Peggy Cunningham

  97. Your books are always a favorite of mine! One of my favorite scriptures is Psalms 127:1.

  98. I lost my dad in November from post-covid complications. It is very hard during these holidays. I know he is in Heaven with my mom but was not ready to lose him. I pray to God to help me and my siblings to get through the holiday season peacefully. God Bless You and your family during this Easter season and always.

  99. Your books have been a blessing to so many (including myself) and I hope you can continue to write them. One of my favorite verses is Matthew 17:20.

  100. Prov. 3:5-6 have always been favorite verses for me. But I also use a concordance to look up specific words that address a particular need…for instance “peace” or “comfort”.

  101. I have recently started a job working in the shelter at the Salvation Army. I have realized (by dealing with the residents), just how truly blessed I have been. Please pray for the people that are put in my path, that I may in some way be a blessing to them. Thank you!

  102. I am a senior citizen and this past year I have had a lot of time to catch up on my reading. I really do enjoy your books. Through reading your books I have also had a hunger to read my Bible more and really improve my prayer life. Something good has come to my life through this pandemic. Thanks so much!

  103. Romans 8:28 is a wonderful promise. Please pray that the growth in my ear does not increase in size and that it will not reach my brain and pray for victory in my employment case. Thanks.

  104. I really enjoy reading your books, they help to lift my spirits. My prayer request is that the world will be able to heal from all the things that are happening right now and life can be easier for everyone.

  105. I have always found some peace from the 23rd Psalm. I seem to recall my mother telling me it was her grandmother’s favorite, and that’s why I memorized it so many years ago. My prayer request is for my mother, Zenova. She took the antibiotic Levaquin about six years ago and it gave her a bad reaction; she is 83 now and still having some side effects. I know she would appreciate it.

  106. Hi Wanda I love reading your books along with alot of other amish books.and I really liked what you said in your journal entry. And my favorite is Psalm 69 and the security prayer also ,I always say the security prayer when I am going through something and it helps me out alot ,along with psalms 69.And right now I really just ask for prayers to know that God is there and that I realize that he is working in my life alog with everyone else. Thank you and God bless everyone and I will keep everyone in my prayers and God bless again.

    1. I’ll pray for you, Elizabeth, to know that God is there with you, and for you to know with assurance, blessed assurance, that He IS working in your life.
      Romans 8:28
      King James Version
      28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

  107. Not only do your books provide peaceful entertainment, they provide inspiration, sometimes even when I don’t realize I need it at that time. Thank you for your wonderful stories that are truly blessings.

  108. I love your books, they are a great inspiration to me. Reading about the simple life of the Amish is one of my favorite past times. One day I hope to go back to visit the Amish land.

  109. Prayers for Zoie. We must always remember that we must rely on God’s timing and not ours. I do have a prayer request. My daughter graduates in a few weeks in Education. She is hoping to secure an Art Education job in a High School in Akron/Canton Ohio area. This is when i need to take my own advice and wait patiently on God, rather than “trying to help him out”. Prayers she will find something.

  110. Wanda, I will never forget the very first book I read of yours, it was simply amazing and I have been hook, lined, and sinkered on your novels. I love love love them. I met you at a book signing in Lafayette, Tn. I have never forgotten that day and I tell that story all the time. With love, Cynthia blackwell

  111. Prayers for Zoie. We never know when something will happen to a love one. Just hope and pray she will get better. I”M reading The Robins Greeting. Another excellent book. Can;t wait to see what happens next.. Looking forward to next book. Thank you for all your stories,

  112. How is your husband able to photograph and sell greeting cards and pictures, when the Amish do not want anybody to take their picture?

    1. Most Amish we know have no problem with photos being taken of their horses, buggies, homes, farms, and even their children who have not joined the church. They don’t object to photos that are not directly in their face, either, and my husband always respects their wishes if any do object.

  113. my mom and i are raising my son who is 35. he is autistic spectrum,bipolar and has ptsd because of experiences he had in the school system. We are doing the best we can and at times it’s very hard as he has multiple triggers and can be very emotional and angry and hard to calm down. we keep reaching out to god and prayer and hoping for the best. i love your books they are my quiet time and are very uplifting and inspirational and i love the scriptures and the passages that are shared and the life lessons in all your books. god bless and keep writing.

  114. I loved reading “The Robin’s Greeting.” All of your books are so inspiring. I was disappointed that a fellow “Christian” would act the way he did because he was not chosen as her mate.
    I do have a special urgent prayer request. Pastor David Ross from Michigan is very ill with COVID and needs a miracle in his lungs.

  115. Amen, reading the bible daily and praying, is a key to a healthy, sound Christian walk with Jesus Christ, our Lord.
    Please pray for my friend, Kim, her mother Linda has terminal cancer in her intestines and elsewhere. Pray for them both, Kim needs Jesus in her heart, and Linda needs peace of mind. Pray for me, too, that I will know the right thing to do and say when the end comes for her mother. Kim was there for me when my older brother died.

  116. I love my quiet prayer time in the morning.
    Reading passages in the Bible is so so helpful in all areas of our lives.
    I’m so thankful and blessed.
    Please pray for my friend Miriam, she has stage four congestive heart failure.
    Thank you and God bless you and yours?❤️

  117. Good afternoon my friends, I am asking prayer for my family that is loss and far away from God. Many are deep in sin and have no desire to serve the Lord. Many are in the balance of decision so please remember these. My daughter and I both have a very serious physical need in our bodies. Please remember us and my family in prayer. You all have a very blessed day.

    Wanda, I enjoy reading all of your books, they certainly are an inspiration to me.

  118. My life-verse since I was age 33 is Isaiah 26:3
    Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee:because he trusteth in thee.
    It has helped me countless times in many circumstances!
    I have loved your writing for a long time and I appreciate all that you do!

  119. I have several prayer requests please. My mom passed away on Dec. 6 and I am just having a hard time . I am trying my best to do what she wanted done but a few people are making it hard. Please pray for this situation. Prayers for all the sick and our Country. I love your books Wanda and The Robin’s Greeting helped me a lot. Thanks for writing such great books.

  120. Love you books and enjoy reading them,. They are certainly a blessing. My favorite scripture
    is Phil. 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. God bless you Wanda
    and may God keep giving you many more stories to share.

  121. i can’t wait to get a copy of Robin’s Greeting I loved the other two and know I will the last one..

  122. I hope you have a Blessed New Year. I just wanted to say we are starting our New Years with sadness.
    We have to put our 15 1/2 year old Yorkie. It will be hard but I know God has a please for her in Heaven. Isaiah 11:6. She is our comfort Baby. It is not far for her to live on pain meds. That’s no life for her. In Heaven she can Run and play like a puppy. I know you have many prayers to give. If you have time. Can you send one out for my hubby. He has high anxiety. Mayce is his comfort dog.
    Thank you

  123. I love verse from the Bible telling us not to worry about what we eat drink wear!
    God gives us peace that world can’t understand!
    His gift to all believers !
    Happy New Year!
    My favorite books are on Quilt Series maybe because my Mother quilted and taught me how/
    and because you include real issues of families friends lives!

  124. I Love reading all your books. Once I start reading them, I can’t set them down! Also praying that 2022 is a much better year and less stress!

  125. Back on the Road again withMDS. We had a hard time getting started this year. It seems like Satan was throwing things at us right and left. But we know God wins in the end. We just keep praying and pushing on. God is so good.
