  1. Listening to you on Amish Wisdom in the winter sunshine at 9.45 am Friday morning in New Zealand. Maybe I am your furtherest away listener today! I still have a teal blue sweatshirt with a black shillouette of an amish buggy from Mother Yoder’s kitchen in Middlefield about 20 years ago. You mentioned your daughter’s graduation – I have a book suggestion. Check out “What I wish For you” by Patti Digh (rhymes with sigh). It is a composite of advice and illustrations her readers of 37days sent in for her daughter Emma when she graduated. I had an illustration on page 108 and wish I had written the post it illustrates. It is full of advice from many different people and backgrounds but it would be great if you and she read it together and shared it. A very special book – but I am biased! many of the contributers are my fb friends too and I visited with patti in Asheville after a weekend at Montreat in May 2011

  2. Ms. Fuller, I just read your “About Me” section and I have to say, that anyone who teaches special ed has a special place in my heart. I have a daughter who is 34 who has Down Syndrome. Her name is Kelly and she just lights up my life. I worked in the medical field for 20 years as a medical assistant, but went off on disability in 2002 due to multiple problems, primarily related to arthritis. Well, because of all my health problems I suffer from chronic pain, and my daughter Kelly just Is the bright spot of my days and helps me get through the pain with her generous spirit and boundless love. She can tell when I am having a bad day, and without me saying a word, she will bring me ice packs for my back (I have chronic back pain). She will tell me, “Mom doctor says ice”. On other occasions, she will come and lay down with me, when I am having an especially bad day, and she will sing to me. She is just so dear, and so sweet, I just can not imagine my life without my precious Kelly. Thanks for the opportunity to share this, I just wanted to share how precious my daughter is to me.

  3. Hi, Kathleen,

    Hi, Kathleen,
    We met in PA at your brother-in-law’s house many years ago. We were Mark and Katina’s neighbors I read Special Assignment and loved it. Just read A Faith of Her Own, loved it. Just wanted to congratulate you on your success and to say I am happy to have met you. Keep on writing and I will keep on reading.
    Blessings to you and your family

  4. I am thoroughly enjoying reading your A Hearts of Middlefield novels. I am on the third one, A Hand to Hold, and have noticed that the name of Moriah’s oldest daughter has been changed from Velda to Verna. I was just wondering if there was a reason for the name change. I am also eager to read other books that you have written. Thank you for sharing your gift of writing with us readers. Judy

  5. Last week I picked up your book, A Man of His Word, in our church library. We live in western New York and I have some very closes Amish friends in a rather large Amish community. My eyes bugged out at the mention of the Middlefield Cheese Factory because we know the Swiss man, Hans Rothenbuhler, who came to Middlefield and started the company with his secret recipe. We had a brief visit to the company when we went to the wedding of their daughter Heidi but we didn’t take the time to visit the town of Middlefield. That was probably over 30 years ago and I’m sure the town was much different then.

    Thank you for the years that you devoted to teaching children with disabilities.


  6. I hope this is the right spot to enter the contest. My favorite candy bar is a PayDay. I never had one until I met my husband. He introduced them to me and now I love them very much!

  7. Is there a book that tells what happened to Bishop Troyer???? I have jus recently found your books and read the Amish of Birch Creek series and feel like a cliff hanger – so much left unsaid???
