Money Secrets of the Amish
By LORILEE CRAKER
Published by Thomas Nelson
Money Secrets of the Amish is the first e-Book I have reviewed for Thomas Nelson. The book is written by author Lorilee Craker from Grand Rapids, Michigan.
This book is full of good wisdom and advice. It is a very quick read and after reading it, I realized that Dave Ramsey is Amish.........he is just in modern clothing. The Amish live the Ramsey way!! They are not bound by finances, they are frugal, resourceful and do not believe in being wasteful or materialistic. Several chapters in the book cover delaying gratification, using products you purchase to their fullest life (and then some), buying items as second hand items to save money...all in an order to only spend money on what you truly need.
As you read Lorilee Craker's book you realize just how wasteful the modern American truly is. But, the book is full of humor and good stories to demonstrate the point of each topic being covered. The book has very sound advice but it is not written in a "preachy" way at all.
I found the book to be informative, very smartly written and very humorous.....a good light quick read and very helpful!
NOTE: I was provided this book for free by Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review and opinion.
