It’s Christmas in August! This month I’m giving away a copy of An Amish Christmas Wedding and a genuine Amish potholder, made by Amy Clipston’s Amish friend Barbara.
This potholder is so pretty–and so perfectly made!
An Amish Christmas Wedding contains four stories centered around a wedding theme:
Evergreen Love by Amy Clipston
Ryan Lapp had promised to marry Lorene Bontrager as soon as he was able to build them a house, but the day never came. Ryan moved away. Five years later, Lorene has settled in to her old maid role, and she’s shocked when her younger sister announces her quick engagement to Ryan’s younger brother. As they rush to plan the wedding, Lorene is constantly around the family she almost joined. Worse, she’s forced to face Ryan himself, who has returned to town. As both Ryan and Lorene examine their own feelings, they must decide if they can find grace with each other—and the young people they once were—this Christmas season. There just might still be love in their future.
Wreathed in Joy by Kathleen Fuller
Mary Wengerd and Jakob Mullet have been best friends since childhood. Pressured by friends and family, they decided to date—with disastrous results. When they break up, their friendship is ruined. A year later, Mary is baking her Englisch friend’s wedding and groom cakes for a Christmas Eve wedding. Mary loves the Christmas season, and had always dreamed of marrying during that time. Now she wonders if she’ll ever marry. After she and Jakob form a tenuous new friendship, Mary breaks her arm. As he steps in to help her with the cakes, Mary is inexplicably and suddenly falling for him. But they’ve already dated, and that ended so horribly. Could it be better this time?
Holiday of Hope by Kelly Irvin
Henry Lufkin is one of four bachelors who lived in the West Kootenai, Montana, cabins that were destroyed by wildfires. He’s the only one of them who hasn’t since married, but he likes his solitude. Then an old friend asks him to care for his son, and Henry has to share his small cabin and his life with bewildered and rebellious ten-year-old Tommy. When the child encounters trouble at school, Henry reaches out to Tommy’s teacher. Leesa Yoder never expected to find herself single and teaching sixteen young scholars, and she certainly didn’t anticipate an inexperienced bachelor telling her how to do her job. Amid the flying sparks, can Henry and Leesa see that there might be hope and love in this unexpected situation?
A Christmas Prayer by Vannetta Chapman
Widower Micah Miller runs the Amish Tour Company, offering Englischers a glimpse of a simpler life as well as tea at Rachel King’s. Rachel has never married and has recently lost her parents. When Micah comes across an abandoned and injured dog, he gives it to Rachel for company. As Rachel is charmed by the dog and shocked by news of the existence of family she never expected, her heart and mind bend toward the possibilities of change in her life—even toward the possibility of love.
To enter the giveaway answer this question in the comments: What is your favorite Christmas season beverage?

Hot Chocolate with peppermint.
Thank you for this chance to win! My favorite beverage is always hot chocolate.. with a few marshmallows or a little whipped cream…and a sprinkle of cinnamon! ❤
Tom and Jerry warms you up on a cold Wisconsin day or night!!!
mine is homemade eggnog! my dad taught me how to make it
Chai latte with full cream milk, extra vanilla and a floating island of cream.
I make this by using a standard chai latte powder, a drip of Tongan vanilla, full cream milk. Whisk while heating to just below a boil. I use a saucepan. Continue to whisk while a foam develops. Tip into your favourite mugs. After whipping cream to a stiff mix, spoon a tablespoon of it on top. (If you like alcohol please add a tablespoon of white or dark rum during the milk whisk stage. Alternatively add to cream before mixing, with a teaspoon of sugar and another drip of vanilla essence). PLEASE USE ONLY REAL INGREDIENTS NOT CHEAP ALTERNATIVE
Thank you, and stay safe in Jesus’s protection during these unusual times! In His love, Amanda
