This is my first Middlefield visit. WoW. So enjoyed meeting these families and the trials and hardships that came their way covered by caring and faith ~ in each other and in God.

In A Faith of Her Own, Anna Mae discovers it is God she is following beyond a creed taken up. How important this is for each of us; to make Him our own. I am looking forward to the next Middlefield story and hope it continues glimpses of these families.
I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
   --Isaiah 45:3
So important to find the calling and giftings God has treasured each of us with in His own time. In each of their searchings, God revealed Truth. Longings that are filled with trust and dependence shine forth in their day-to-day lives. These are the characters in A Faith of Her Own, those who have read previous Middlefield stories will recognize: Anna Mae Shetler and her parents; David Mullet and sons Jeremiah and Amos; Bekah Yoder; Johnny and Katherine (Katie) Mullet; Caleb Mullet; Doc and Amy Miller; and Judith Hostetler, new next-door neighbor to David and Amos Mullet.

I liked how each family's struggles are revealed and the growth through the difficulties they face from the past is redeemed in their lives. Communication becomes vital after being separate and held back from each other. Choosing to be open and vulnerable brings healing in their relationships as honesty stems forth. Especially, when David Mullet breaks his silence about his feelings and he is able to move forward. So much we hold back causes others to be held captive too. A beautiful story of grace and forgiveness. Very well-written with strong characters available to be touched with love and gratitude.
