“There’s an amusing storyline running through The Letters about an oh-so-proper Amish grandmother who allows her granddaughters to keep one book in the house (beside the Holy Bible and the Book of Martyrs, of course). The book is called A Young Woman’s Guide to Virtue and was published in 1948. The granddaughters find the book to be thoroughly old-fashioned and outdated, but surprisingly, they do pull wisdom from it as they navigate their own teenaged pitfalls. This grandmother had a way of getting her message across, loud and clear.

The Amish place great emphasis on the power of example. That’s one of the reasons children are included in all parts of Amish life—so they are constantly steeped in good modeling.

It’s encouraging to realize your example as a parent does go deep into your children’s development. Such awareness is a motivation, too, to be our best self at all times.

What changes for you today, knowing your child is watching and observing everything you do and say?” ~Suzanne~

GIVEAWAY: Suzanne is graciously giving away a copy of The Letters to one of my blog readers! Enter below & I’ll send the name of the winner to Suzanne. She’ll send out your copy!

  1. The message of the book sounds great. And I love your image…so true. As a grandmother myself I think about this often and I love chats with my granddaughters. It’s so easy natural to talk about the Lord with them.

  2. This looks like a wonderful book. I turned 50 years old this week and started a new blog, reflecting and thinking of how to spend the ‘rest of my life’. Part of it certainly involves being a positive influence on my grandchildren. 🙂

  3. Great review, thanks for sharing. Thanks for linking up at Essential Fridays. Blessings.
