  1. So excited for you! I have so much respect for you Christopher and having ‘watched’ you, through the site, and how you’ve held your heart before the Lord waiting for HIS perfect timing and desiring HIS will above what the world says! 🙂 So, this post made me smile! 🙂 Thank you, Maxwells, for sharing a personal family moment so that we can truly join you in praying for God’s faithful leadership in all this, but also so that us with younger kiddos can ‘learn’, too. We love seeing Godly men walk out things like this, so that we can show our own two boys what it can look like! 🙂 BLESSINGS!!! 🙂

    We have never met you, but our family has been blessed by your family.
    Praising the Lord with you, and praying God’s hand of direction will be clearly seen!

  3. Congratulations Christopher and Anna!! This is exciting news you are sharing with us. We will be keeping you in our daily prayers. We are so happy for you both. Blessings on you.

    Christopher, Who took this beautiful photo of the two of you since you are the photographer? It’s is a beautiful capturing of the two of you.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari
    Anna H’s brother, Michael, is learning photography and, yes, he did a great job with the photo.

  4. We will pray that God provide the confirmation in your heart that has led you both to this courtship. What a beautiful step in faith and thank you for both incuding and encouraging those of us that count you as our family in faith. We trust the Holy Spirit to enlighten your mind and enkindle the flame of His Love.

  5. First of all, what wonderful news! May the Lord bless & guide both of you, as well as your families, as you seek His will for your future. Secondly, I want to comment about your picture. I can’t tell you how much it was a blessing to me & my children to see you not touching…not holding hands…not hugging!! I have been disappointed in the past to see that among some Christians who were courting. I believe that could be a trap for people in a courtship. To me, your picture radiates PURITY 🙂
    We will keep you in our prayers 🙂

  6. Congratulations! May the Lord bless you with wisdom, and His clear leading as you seek Him.

  7. Congratulations to both of you!! Our homeschooling family is so encouraged and blessed by your blog, and we share today in your excitment for the future!!

  8. Halleluja! Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

    I’ve been praying for both of you, and will continue to do so.

    Grace and peace be mulitplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (2 Peter 2a).

  12. Congratulations!!! What a blessing it is to me and my family to see Christians live for Christ in every aspect of their lives…to not give in the ways of the world and what is “acceptable” in today’s culture, even inside the church.

    Blessings to both of you as you continue to be a light and remain unpolluted from this world.

    My thoughts exactly. I just mentioned that hymn on my blog yesterday. 🙂
    CONGRATULATIONS, Christopher and Anna!

  22. My sincere prayers go with Anna and Christopher during this sacred and profoundly life-changing season. Live “with open hands” — the path is the Lord’s and He will direct your steps.

    My husband and I were in our 30s when the Lord brought us together, and we have no regrets about waiting on His purposes and timing. In those days, people used to say to each of us (separately), “When are you EVER going to get married?” or “Why aren’t you married yet?” As if that was something in our hands…

    Your lives are in the Lord’s hands, and I can say from experience that He gives good gifts to His people.

    Be blessed in the Lord.

  23. Congratulations on the new marriage. I was just sitting here on night shift and I realized the wedding has already happened!!! I regret not being able to attend. I hope it was a wonderfully God blessed event. I’m excited for you two and what God is doing in your lives. May your lives and union in Him serve to glorify Him in mighty ways all of your days together. “He makes all things Beautiful in His time” Ecclesiastes 3:11

    May God Bless and keep you two,
