Happy Birthday, Dad!

Our faithful leader.


Happy Birthday!

My heart is overflowing because you’re my daddy. You have faithfully led our family over these many, many years. Through every challenge we face (and before trips is no exception!), you have persevered, trusting in our Savior, and pointing each of us to Him as our All in All.

I’ll love you forever!

  5. Happy Birthday, Mr. Maxwell! It’s my birthday today, too!

    By the way, I was born on my great-grandfather’s 60th birthday. Wouldn’t it be great if you got to share your birthday with your newest grandchild?!?


  6. What a wonderful picture, and what a wonderful ministry you have! Happy Birthday, Steve!

  7. So beautifully stated, Sarah! I’m sure that Mr. Max is as proud of you as you are of him. I lost my dad just a couple of weeks ago and your beautiful honorary brought tears. How lucky are we who first learned of our Heavenly Father’s love through the love and commitment of our fathers on Earth!!

    Happiest Birthday Greetings Mr. Maxwell!!
    So sorry, Missy :-(. Hugs. Sarah

  8. Happy Birthday, Steve. I could tear up with gratitude every time I think of how the Lord has used you to encourage my husband to be a godly husband and father. May the Lord continue to bless the work of your hands and guide you faithfully. Kim C.

  9. Happy Birthday, Mr. Maxwell! My brother’s birthday is in August, too! He’s very excited!

  10. Thank you for sharing this Sarah. It brought me to tears, as godly fathers are too few and far between. I am grateful to the Lord for your family who encourages me from afar. God bless you!
