A simpler way of life is possible.
In this fast-paced and ever-changing world full of chaos and uncertainty, many seek a place where steadfast truth, godly values, and biblical principles are being lived out. That world exists among the Amish. Inside the Simple Life welcomes readers into a tight-knit community where peace and tranquility abound, where “love thy neighbor” means more than just waving hello, and where all needs are taken care of by each member of the community.
Be inspired by real stories paired with stunning photographs of Amish life as told by an “Englisher” who has been welcomed into the private and fascinating world of the Old Order Amish. Let author Susan Hougelman’s heartwarming stories of their simpler way of life stir you to embrace meaningful change through biblical principles lived out by the Amish people.
