Where The Amish Heart Lies: A Collection of Amish Romance

by Eliza Baker

AN ANTHOLOGY OF AMISH ROMANCES AND HOME LIFE
WHERE THE AMISH HEART LIES
She both loved and hated how genuine his concern was for her and their child. Sometimes, with great effort, Miriam could see her future with Isaac. He was a good man, whom she did care for greatly. Settling herself onto the armchair near the front window, Miriam sighed, and rested her hand on her belly. She was still not far enough along to feel the baby move, but she liked to imagine that she could feel each little kick and squirm.
More often than not, though, when she sat like this she imagined what would have happened if Matthew had settled down after their Rumspringa, gotten baptized, and proposed to her. Would they have a baby now? Or maybe more than one? She could picture how their children would have looked, even as she couldn’t picture what this babyâ??this very real baby that she was having with Isaacâ??would look like.

Miriam and Isaac’s marriage is in trouble but they are making progress in communicating better with her former boyfriend out of the picture. Miriam is with child, and her pregnancy is helping to bring them together. But when tragedy strikes and she flees her Amish community in grief, it’s not her husband who follows her. It’s her former boyfriend, the man she’s loved since childhood.
ENDURING AMISH
Annabelle Graber had her fair share of heartache and pain, and after the untimely death of her husband, she had even less to hope for. With a daughter only three years of age, and a baby growing in her womb, she has very little hope to find her feet again in a hurry. She has to get by baking bread and helping her best friend Helen, but when opportunity presents itself, and a door opens, she has two choices, stay or go.
Owen Yoder, father of five was starting to take strain taking care of five kids and working, and when he finally decides to try something completely different, he orders a bride from one of the other communities. His first encounter with the beautiful Annabelle leaves him hopeful, but he decides to give her time to think it over.
Will two people who had both dealt with the tragedy of death, find comfort and companionship with each other, and finally start the life they both deserve?
A SEASON FOR AMISH ROMANCE
Amos is a young Amish man used to getting what he wants. But when he lays eyes on Esther, he knows he has to be at his best. She is a lot like him, charismatic and full of life…but sometimes full of herself. Still, he cannot help but fall for her charms even though she doesn’t pay any attention to him and her father doesn’t care for him. Can he somehow find a way to win her heart?

Your ability to move all the mountains in your life, is going to be found in you opening your mouth, and speaking of the Word of God, in faith, and in the name of Jesus – to your situation.

But when you incorporate the power of God (the spoken Word of God) into those same impossible, and difficult situations of life, you will clearly see that nothing is impossible with God.

by What God Says Ministries

In this life, you have to gain concept of the fact that it is not up to you, to fight and extinguish the attacks (that the devil tosses at you). It is for you to use the supernatural force of faith, to spiritually fight, and spiritually extinguish all the attacks that the devil has brought your way, is bringing your way, and will bring your way. You don’t fight – use faith to do the fighting, extinguishing, and the winning for you. Don’t rely on your strength – rely on the supernatural force of faith to work successfully, for you.

They are to use faith, to fight, extinguish, and win.

The Life of David

by Gary J. Hall

A Devotional style Bible study of the Life of David



Jesus Quotes

by Explorer

Jesus[e] (c.â??4 BC – c.â??AD 30 / 33), also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus Christ,[f] was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader. He is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christians believe he is the incarnation of God the Son and the awaited Messiah (Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament.

Virtually all modern scholars of antiquity agree that Jesus existed historically,[g] although the quest for the historical Jesus has produced little agreement on the historical reliability of the Gospels and on how closely the Jesus portrayed in the Bible reflects the historical Jesus.[h][i] Jesus was a Galilean Jew who was baptized by John the Baptist and subsequently began his own ministry, preaching his message orally and often being referred to as “rabbi”. Jesus debated with fellow Jews on how to best follow God, engaged in healings, taught in parables and gathered followers. He was arrested and tried by the Jewish authorities, turned over to the Roman government, and was subsequently crucified on the order of Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect. After his death, his followers believed he rose from the dead, and the community they formed eventually became the early Church.



Jonah – The Renegade Prophet

by Gary J. Hall

This book was originally a six part Bible Study given at Living Word Bible Church, therefore it is a devotional rather than an attempt at being historical or highly theological. Though the text of the Book of Jonah is contained this study, you might want to have an open Bible (preferably the KJV) beside you to look up accompanying references.

Critics and liberals have always tried to make out that the story of Jonah is simply an fairy tale, an allegory or parable. How can anyone believe that a whale swallowed a man, and three days later was regurgitated alive on the beach! Well, Jesus did – and that should be enough to prove that the story is a factual narrative. Someone once said, “I’d believe the Bible if it said that Jonah swallowed the whale”.

Mahatma Buddha Quotes

by Explorer

Gautama Buddha was a spiritual leader on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived in eastern India/ Nepal during the 6th to 4th century B.C. Born as a prince, he spent his childhood in the lap of luxury. He lost his mother at an early age and his doting father tried his best to keep his young son away from the miseries of the world. When he was a little boy, some wise scholars predicted that he would become either a great king or a renowned spiritual leader. His father hoped that his son would one day become a great king. The prince was kept away from all forms of religious knowledge and had no idea about the concepts of old age, sickness and death. Once on a trip through the city on a chariot he witnessed an old man, a diseased person, and a corpse. This new knowledge about the sufferings in the world gave rise to several questions within his mind and the prince soon renounced all his worldly affairs in order to embark on a journey of self-discovery. Finally after years of rigorous contemplation and meditation, he found Enlightenment, and became the Buddha, meaning “awakened one” or “the enlightened one”.
