You know, I love my family. I love the way my parents have raised us. I love to have brothers and sisters that are my best friends. I love having seven editors who will critique my Moody books and make them the best (logically and sensibly) that we can. I love to share the Lord Jesus across the country alongside my family.
Being a team means we work together. During a book project or a conference, the Maxwell team really shines. I remember the Spokane conference last October, our team was down to six, and that was hard. But, the Lord gave grace, and it made me appreciate even more those team members that weren’t feeling well! Right now, we have multiple writing projects going. Some are shouldering more responsibility than normal, and they’re doing so above and beyond. Maybe I’ll do a blog post on that when I get a few pictures of them in action.
I know there are many young moms out there who only have little children and long for the day that those children are older and can help more. Then, I think about those at our nursing home, who reminisce about the days gone by. Life passes quickly. Moms, don’t be discouraged. Keep loving those little ones, training them, treasuring them, and protecting their hearts. Persevere! May we never take for granted each day the Lord Jesus gives us.
Okay, so where am I going with this one. My incredible brothers offered to make breakfast for us today. They made Chocolate Chip Muffins (FYI: the recipe is in Winter with the Moodys) and bacon. And, guess what else? They cleaned up too!
Teamwork = a wonderful thing.
