But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love, for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. Psalm 59:16
When you can’t face your troubled emotions and your spirit is broken, where can you find comfort? The Amish Heirlooms continues with the Fisher family. It is now the youngest daughter Emily to find the riches of wisdom within her mother’s family locked hope chest. Emily helps her father along with his partner Leroy in the leather shop where they make leather goods for tourists.
Emily’s life changes when Leroy’s nephew Christopher comes to live with him and help in the shop. It is Emily’s nature to make other feel welcome however, Christopher responds rudely to Emily’s gracious welcome and leaves Emily perplexed.
When she finds out Christopher is running from a tragedy of the family, she desires to become his friend. As the friendship develops, they both must face their fears and learn to wait for the heart to heal.
Christopher’s story was a heartbreaker for me as he struggled with self-esteem, grief, and the affirmation of his father. Emily’s encouragement helped him see his worthiness and his need for community. It was a tear jerker for me. I loved it!
