Book Review: Money Secrets of the Amish

Money Secrets of the Amish: Finding True Abundance in Simplicity, Sharing, and Saving. This book was borrowed digitally from the public library lending program - a wonderful service I feel fortunate to have access to.

Lorilee Craker is having another child and needs a bigger house but can't afford to sell the one she lives in because they are underwater, so she does what any Mennonite might think to do; explore the money secrets of the Amish in an effort to change her own life.

These financial stories are almost always the same, someone's financial life is a mess but then they find inspiration in somewhere and turn things around through thrift, appreciation for what they have, and making more money. And I love them all. It's like when I was 16-25 years old and even though every Will Smith or Tom Cruise movie followed the same predictable lines, I still enjoyed them and Craker's is no different.

Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without.
