Step Out In Faith

Written In Love by Kathleen Fuller is the first book in the new Amish Letters Series. I enjoyed getting to know Phoebe and Jalon through their pen-pal letters. Jalon is not proud of is past and has worked hard to put that behind him and rededicate his Amish faith. One day he recieves a note that was included in a piece of mis-directed mail. He starts to look forward each day for a letter from Phoebe and steps out in faith asking that they meet each other.

Phoebe lives with her aunt and also looks forward each day to Jalon’s letters. When he suggests they meet, Phoebe panics. She also steps out in faith and shared some of her heart, but has not been entirely truthful about her past.

When Jalon arrives at her front porch, everything is revealed. For the both of the to move on, they put their faith into God.

I absolutely loved the book and loved how both Jalon and Phoebe’s faith starts to grow knowing God has plans for their lives.

I received Written In Love from The Fiction Guild to read and review for an honest opinion.

The Ebb Tide

The Ebb Tide is a story about a young Amish woman whose dreams took her all over the world. Our lives are like the ebb tide, low at certain times during our seasons of life and needing God’s hand and high at other times.

Sallie Riehl is strugling with having to join her Amish Community and her promise to her mother to be baptized and join the church. How can Sallie be happy? While working as a waitress at a local restaurant she meets an English family when serving them dinner. She travels to Cape May, New Jersey with the family for the summer as a nanny to their daughter Autum.

While in Cape May, Sallie meets Kevin, a Mennonite. For the first time since leaving home for the summer, it dawns on Sallie that Kevin understands her and the desires to travel.

As the summer progresses so does the friendship between the both of them. Sallie starts to see how God has plans for her that are different from what she has and her heart is confused.

Will God lead Sallie to a different place or will it just be a friendship with Kevin?

We all have an ebb tide and rely on Jesus’s love and strength to carry us through.

Learning to let go and let God

img_7690.jpgAn Amish Home is a collection of four short novellas which focused on the everyday struggles of life, love, faith and hope. Home Sweet Home was my favorite. Mia came from a privileged home. She and Chace were down on their luck after being evicted from their apartment. They both reluctantly take his boss up on the offer to rent them the daadihaus. The cabin lacked modern day conveniences and soon they start to blame each other for the situation they are in, their finances and marriage. This is a story of redemption and learning to let go and let God.
