Happy Birthday Sarah!!!

Happy birthday, Sarah. We are greatly blessed as we think about all the ways you serve and bless this family and others. Eleven years ago, when the Managers of Their Homes book came out, you immediately took responsibility for packing and shipping each order. Now you effectively and efficiently manage all of our book titles, including their initial printings and reprints. You process orders, make sure we have the right boxes and other shipping supplies, handle the taxes and filing, answer the phone and e-mails, take photos, keep up the blog, and coordinate our speaking trips. Somehow in the midst of all of that, you find time to write your own books – books that have blessed, encouraged, and mentored thousands of children.

Not only are you the backbone of Titus2, you help with meals and cleaning here at home. You clean for Nathan and Melanie when Melanie is pregnant and unable to do so herself because of her difficult pregnancies. You make lunch for Gigi and Grandad one day a week and eat with them plus help with cleaning their house.

We love your heart for the Lord Jesus, your sweet spirit, and your great desire to fully serve and obey Him. We delight in the time we have had with you as a beautiful young woman who has chosen to continue to live in our home when you could have moved on to live any life that you desired.

While we are prepared to take over all that you do should the Lord bring a man into your life to be your husband, we are grateful for all you have given to our family and invested in so many others around the world. We are blessed to have you as a daughter and sister.

Your Family

  8. Happy Birthday Sarah!
    Thank you so much for your shining example of a young lady striving to live out her passion for Christ in a family setting ๐Ÿ™‚ That has been such an example to me!
    Blessings,

  9. Dear Sarah,
    Happy Birthday! I am that boy you met in St. Louis, MO when your family was on tour. We got our picture with you. The Moody series is awesome! I read one every night before I go to bed. Where did you get the ideas for the book? I am working on a story of my own about a red wolf named James. Your very big reader,
    Tony

    Dear Tony,

    I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying the Moody books! The Lord gives me the
    ideas for each book. Often, they are based on my family or things I’ve
    observed happening to others. In addition, the Lord gives creativity :-).
    Good job on working on your own story. Practice, practice, and more practice
    is important!

    Only for Jesus,
    Sarah

  10. Happy Birthday, Sarah! I am so glad that the author of the post mentioned some of the many ways a daughter can bless her family and serve the Lord with her single years. Your counterculteral example of seeking first His kingdom is an inspiration to many young ladies. We are so grateful for you.
    We pray for God’s continued abundant blessings on your “Sweet Journey”.

  11. Hello Sarah! You seem like such a humble person that you are probably overwhelmed with all of these birthday wishes ๐Ÿ™‚ but I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without letting you know how much our children are enjoying the Moody books! They ask to read a chapter every night and we always have a book along when we go travelling! We are so grateful for you and the ministry that the Lord has entrusted to you. My son (who is 5) hopes you keep writing more books. We are just ready to meet the twins (Spring with the Moody’s) and are enjoying the adventure! Lord willing we will have a chance to meet you someday and express our appreciation- I hope and pray that the Lord blesses you this year!
    God bless, the H family in Canada (Prov. 3:5,6)

  12. Happy birthday, Sarah! I so enjoy seeing what you and your family are up to via the blog. I am praying that God will send along just the right husband for you and that He will grant you the desires of your heart.

    In Christ,
    Kristy

  13. Happy birthday Sarah! My 31st birthday is January 25th ๐Ÿ™‚ God bless you and I pray you have an awesome year full of God’s goodness.

  14. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the huge blessing you have been to us. We have 7 little ones age 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and 3 mo. and we see our family being like yours in so many ways…just a “smaller” version. Right now everyone is “little”, but I know all to well that time flys and that all to soon they will be 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, and 13. You have encouraged us greatly and we are so grateful to the Lord for each of you. Thank you so much!! ~ Stephen and Christina, Martin, Millie, Bella, Elaina, James, Lydia and Gus

  15. Happy, happy birthday, Sarah! I hope you enjoyed your special day! I spent my 20s exploring who I was and what I wanted to do, and my 30s being the person I spent my 20s discovering, so I hope you are looking forward to this new decade! I loved reading the post about all you have accomplished and hope you continue blessing others with your talents. Oh, and what a beautiful photo of you (love that sweater!).

  16. Happy belated birthday, Sarah! To be honest, you don’t look 30! ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, I have read a few of your books, and I like them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Happy Balated Birthday, Miss Sarah!!! I love to hear from you guys, i hope all is well with you and God gave you a wonderful birthday!
    God Bless!!
    Isabel

  18. Happy Birthday Sarah. Thank you for the work you do for the Lord. We love your books and it was such a joy to meet you a couple years ago. I was blessed to see how personal you were with myself and daughters. God Bless.

  19. Long before you were conceived, God’s love for you was born!

    A belated Happy Birthday to you, Sarah!

    We pray for you every time we read a chapter from the Moody’s books!

    Love from NJ

  20. Wow… this is really late… but HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just want you to know how much you have blessed my life! I have your CD when you talk about the young ladies… I have listened to it SO many times I can literally repeat it word for word. It has blessed me and challenged me!
    I also love the Moody Books, and even though I am now 17, I enjoy reading them to my younger siblings, doing voices and stuff like that. It’s so fun to watch their intent faces and listen to them complain when I have to stop! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I hope you don’t mind, but I have written a 20 chapter book, and used your idea that you have in the back of your book on how much really happened and stuff in your family. I enjoy the way you write things! Unfortunately, we were only able to get up to Autumn with the Moody’s… ๐Ÿ™ Maybe one of these days the Lord will allow us to be able to get another one….

    Your Friend in Christ,
    Stepheny

  21. Dear Stepheny,

    I’m glad the Lord has used me in your life to be an encouragement. That is my desire! That’s wonderful you have written a book. Congratulations! Sure, it’s no problem that you used the “Not All Fiction” idea. Families provide many opportunities for book writing.

    Love,
    Sarah

  22. That’s what it’s called!! “Not all fiction”… I couldn’t remember at the time I was writing the comment!! Thanks! and yes family is SUCH a blessing for ideas!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    thansk again
    Steph
