A Different kind of Giveaway---4 Amish Novels by Beth Wiseman



Watch this trailer to learn about the first book in the series...turn off the music on my side bar first!

MY WINNERS!!!: The 4 books: Sherri! The first book: Nicole C!

These books are not new, they have been read and passed on, so I am passing them on to you...(the winner). You can do the same if you want and host a giveaway when you are done reading them.
Beth Wiseman is one of my favorite authors of Amish fiction. If you don't know much about the Amish, you will learn some things very quickly...I've even learned some German.  My father in law knows German(some) and sometimes asks some questions in German.  One day, I actually knew what he said!! HA!  I use some German in my vocabulary just for fun!  My hubby and I get a kick out of using "wonderbaar" for great/wonderful.

So, this giveaway is for the first 4 out of 5 books in a series...one of the best I've read of my Amish books!
So, for your entries:  Leave a comment about what you know of or have heard of the Amish or that you have "no idea about the Amish."
Post on your blog/facebook/twitter/communities for extra entries...but leave me a comment for each one that you have done.  In all of your entries leave your email--encrypted ---such as: jaime at gmail dot com. I will draw the winner by the infamous random number generator Friday evening after 5pm.

Oh, and for the second runner up, I will be giving away the first book in this series(another used copy, but still good!)

I can only ship to a stateside address, so if you are a missionary, then send a stateside address...if you win.

The reason I don't have the fifth book---I read it from my local library! So, maybe you can do the same!!

If your entry is left anonymous and there is no email with it, I will delete it in the end from the entries. Also, any extra comments that are not entries, I will also take out from the drawings. Please leave that email or a way to get in touch if you win:).


FYI--I had to delete a few comments...b/c I couldn't find an email:
Here are a few that I deleted that had names, but no links...please enter again!!
Tricia, Loretta, Kim, Wearyrn,Dorene, Sherry, Sue Hess, Janet. I did delete anon's, if there was no info. Hope you all get a chance...drawing in 30 minutes!

I have heard that the Amish do not have mirrors in their home because they think that it is vane to look at yourself. They also do not want their pictures taken as that is also vanity.

They have the faith that more of us should have. I love reading about their lives as I have Amish communities close to where I live.

Jody said...

What a great giveaway! Beth's books are fabulous.

I have read a lot about the Amish and one of the things I like the most is that they value family so highly. Elderly parents live in a "Dawdi haus" which is normally attached to the "main" house. Children are eagerly anticipated and large families are the norm.

thanks for entering me in the giveaway.

The Amish are so geared to family and earning an honest living... but most of all, depending on God for most things!!!
They have very strong convictions.

Well, this will be quite hard to confess but here it goes....I have put God on a shelf, I have stopped going to church for serious and personal experience with the church. When I read Amish books, it contains God and possibly a message for me. SO, for now, thats how I read anything pertaining to God.

The Amish are a people of faith and peace, a people who value relationships and family, a people who want to be set apart from the things of this world. We could learn a lot from them.

crochetsandi said...

God should never be put on a Shelf. Without God I would never make it. He is my strength an lifeline. The Amish people have a way of life an Love for God that I would Love to have. Take God off the shelf an put Him back into your heart. Crochetsandi@hotmail.com

PastorLinda said...

Thank you for this opportunity to grow through the world of fiction. The Amish are all around us here in Iowa and we have grown to appreciate their loving and simple ways. Oh, that more of us would slow down and just appreciate family and neighbors as much as these precious folks. Linda at eldergaff 3 at hotmail dot com.

Deborah said...

I know that the Amish live in harmony with their faith, and with nature. I know that they want the same thing for their families and communities as we "English" do. In my eyes, that gives us more things in common than things that seperate us. asthenight at gmail dot com

My grandparents lived near the Amish in Pennsylvania. I went to a few Amish animal auctions with my grandpa. The people are very polite and kind.

Jen said...

These sound like great books! I've traveled to Amish country in Indiana and Ohio. Our friend's grandfather was Amish. He didn't get electricity in his house until he was in his 80's and that was only because life became difficult when his wife came down with Alzheimer's.

The Amish are very forgiving people. They believe that it is God's will, they are wonderful people to know and I wish I had their faith and devotion.

i only know a little about them, while i'd like a simplier life i don't think i'd want to go that far - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

I only know a little-They do not use electricity or indoor plumbing. Their entire lives revovle around their church belief. Due to the small gene pool, they often have some genetic problems. I believe the Amish orginially came from Germany.

I got "hooked on Amish" about 4 months ago when my mother-in-law had given me a few books for Christmas...they sat on my shelf collecting dust because I don't like fiction. BOY, was I wrong! I am so enthralled with Amish fiction and everything Amish (even though I am an evangelical Christian). The Amish are devout -- if not to a fault, very faithful, believe fully in the providence of God, and are steadfast and unwavering in their commitment to their community and their families. They are absolutely fascinating. What a blessing it would be to received more reading material. I've already told my family, if they can't find me, I'm in Amish country!! Haha!!

All I know of the Amish is from fiction and I don't have any idea how accurate that is. It's my understanding that they place a high value on faith and family.
