Anna and Mary

In order for Mom to be able to spend her summer on the book project, she needed help to free her time. Book writing is intense and requires many hours.

So, Anna and Mary stepped up to the plate. Anna has taken over meal planning, grocery shopping (with Mary), errands, keeping the house tidied, and other items. Mary handles laundry, tidying the house, cleaning, and other projects.

I love you, Anna and Mary!

  1. What darling girls!! I can imagine what a blessing they are to your mother while she writes her book. Much love to you all, and many thanks again to your Dad and brother for advising me not to start work on the front end of my car. Knowing me, I would have tried it were it not for their advise. Then I would have been toast!!!

    In my opinion, far better to be willing to try something and be advised against it than not have the initiative in the first place.

  2. Dear Maxwell Family,
    Since we have the privilege of knowing you personally, I know that Anna and Mary have taken on their extra work and chores with huge smiles and joy in the Lord. We can see them smiling all the way in New Hampshire It is so obvious that for each of the Maxwells, your joy is in the Lord and that you are joyously living lives that are full of sacrifice and service, just like our Lord Jesus.
    Can’t wait to read the new books. We always grow in our walks with HIM from reading your materials!!
    Love and miss you all!!
    The S. Family

  3. Great pictures! A sweet post, Sarah. Praying for your mom in her writing. That extra work is also great practice for if and when Anna and Mary get married and have families and homes of their own someday!

    Thank you, Anna and Mary for being such joyful, willing helpers and may the Lord bless your efforts!

    God bless! Rebecca K.

  4. Anna and Mary,
    Thank you for all you do to facilitate your mom’s writing. I am eagerly anticipating what the Lord will do with the newest book, both in our family and in the hearts of all the families your family’s ministry touches.
    To God be the glory!

  5. What wonderful daughters to help out. I hope my young ones will be like Mary and Anna someday. Keep up the good work.

  6. What an encouragement & joy to read this post. We are training 3 ‘Keepers at home’ at the moment. When a lot of voices cry out against this goal, this is refreshing & motivating for us to see the fruit in your lives & to stay the course & trust & obey the LORD in the roles he has ordained! Praise the LORD for your obedience.

  7. oh how i wished that my mom would of raised me to be a keeper of the home instead of pushing me to have a job. Now with 28 i am on the slow path of learning how to be a keeper of my home, thankfully God blessed me with a understanding husband even though hes not very mature in his Christian walk or leadership. God Bless you Girls for the work you doing in His name everyday
