Jacob and Hannah continue their journey in Faith and discovery of each other and what they can truly become as they discover that “Forgiveness” is the key to freedom in so many ways: not just for each other and their small circle of friends, but for themselves. Follow their path to the Light and the Way as these two young seekers of the Truth yield to their hearts and souls that long to belong to something much greater than them. Can Jacob make amends with his teammates? Will Hannah convince Jacob that what she sees is not just the truth but the way? Will these two mismatched young people find the peace and understanding they each crave and desire? What defines “Forgiveness” for you? Luke 6:37 “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. “ Mark 11:25 “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” They have a choice, a decision to make. As they do this "forgiving," they come to discover the command is in place for their own good, and maybe they will receive the reward of their forgiveness—freedom. “Volume 2- Forgiveness” contains a killer potato pancake recipe. Don’t miss this one! Hi! First off my wife Sarah and I wish to thank everyone that has purchased our stories thus far. We are both humbled, happy and amazed at the response. We fully intend to deliver the best stories we possibly can and also have some great recipes for you. To date there are two stories, “Volume 1-TheEpiphany” and “Volume 2- Forgiveness”, in the series we have started called “Amish Paradise”. The name comes from where I lived, a bit of a play on words let us say. I grew up on a farm on Paradise Lane right off of Route 741 in what most people would call Lancaster, Pa. but really for those of us that got mail delivered there it is Ronks. The Strasburg Railroad is right down the street from us and the trains would go by our farm all day filled with kids of all ages wanting to experience the great steam engines and get a glimpse of the Amish life. People that enjoy railroads and train modeling are like that, kids no matter what age. I often wondered while I was doing my chores what it would be like on the other side, what my life would and could be like as an outsider, not in Plain clothes. When I got my chance, I chose to stay out but have held onto many of the ideals and core beliefs my family instilled in me. It is part of who I am and what I choose to do. My wife Sarah is not from an Amish Family but once she met everybody she finally got to understand “me” and really got to see what helped make me tick. Where my thought process came from and where I got my work ethic. The stories in our series are steeped in reality. I got permission from my little but bigger brother to fictionalize his life so he could be an example to others. Hoping that they will not make the mistakes he made, instead hoping they see that living with open eyes, mind and heart they will live a much fuller life and gain the grace and peace they seek with their Maker.
