Homespun: Amish and Mennonite Women in Their Own Words by Lorilee Craker

40701771Homespun: Amish and Mennonite Women in Their Own Words

Ever wish you could visit with a group of Amish or Mennonite women over a cup of coffee? In the pages of Homespun, Amish and Plain Mennonite women swap stories and spin yarns while we listen in. Lorilee Craker, bestselling author of Money Secrets of the Amish, collects these personal writings about hospitality, home, grief, joy, and walks with God. Hear from one woman who struggles with feeling inferior to her sister, from another about her longing for a baby, and from a third who accidentally bought stretchy material to sew her husband’s pants. Each woman’s story is a testament to the grace of God and the blessings of community. Behind Amish romance novels and tourist spots and television shows stand real people, with longings and loves just like the rest of us. Every Amish and Mennonite woman has a story. In Homespun, you get to hear some of them.

My Thoughts:
Homespun is a great collection of essays written of faith, love and family by Amish or Mennonite women. This book is simply lovely. I loved how relatable, funny and even the teary moments that this book welcomed as I read it. Each essay made me feel welcomed and felt like a savory journey as I took one essay at a time.  
Homespun is wonderful read. It will capture your heart and allow you to slow down, open your heart and renew your faith.
