Conference Report

We were incredibly blessed by our time at SEARCH. There is so much involved to putting on a conference. This one was even more complex, since they run an enormous used book sale. The SEARCH staff ran a well-oiled machine.

Since we had been to CHAP last year (another amazing, extremely well-done conference), we saw quite a few familiar faces. We enjoyed fellowshipping with old friends and meeting new brothers and sisters in Christ.

On Friday, Dad and Mom’s first session started at 11 a.m., and the guys had a session as well. The day passed quickly with more sessions. Hearts were tender and receptive to what was shared. Since there are eight of us, and we all have different roles (speaking, book tables, etc), we interact with many people. Come Saturday night, as we’re in the bus driving, we love to talk about memorable conversations we had. Through the feedback shared, it was obvious hearts had been encouraged and strengthened in the Lord Jesus. It was also a joy for us Maxwell children to be able to speak to the young people. One highlight for Dad was sharing a new session called, Where Are You Headed After High School? We hope to offer it as an audio resource sometime later this year.

We see clearly why the Lord brought us to the conference: to be used of Him to meet specific needs. May fruit be brought forth!

Enjoy the pictures, which will give you a taste of our time there.


Crockpots make easy meals!

The used book sale was a great success.

The snack cart came around every now and then. It was a great idea!

A practical example.


Writing notes!

Break in between sessions.

A young lady, Abigale, who enjoys the Moodys. My heart (Sarah), is filled with joy to the Lord Jesus for using these books in ways I never dreamed of. It is a delight to meet children who love the Moodys.

Pack up time!

desire fruit that may abound to your account.”

–Philippians 4:17

  1. Always fun to see pics of your travels. My daughter is waiting to have her pic made with Sarah too. Lord willing and only in his timing. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Sarah,

    My sister was wondering if there’s any news on a new Moody book. Do you have plans for one? We so enjoy them here! 🙂
    I’m sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Spring Days outline is in process, and Sarah hopes to have the book out by Christmas or early next year.

  3. Sounds like the Lord certainly used you all at the conference! 🙂 Thank you for sharing all these photos–as I view the various members of the Maxwell family, I feel I’m viewing dear friends! (even though we’ve never met in person) ~ Continued prayers for you all as you work for the Lord. Love, Patti M.
    p.s. Oh my! The photo entitled “Precious face” of the little girl with blonde hair made my heart melt—such a sweet little angel. 🙂

  4. Thank you for a great SEARCH conference. Our hearts were encouraged!
    I see a few familiar faces in your pictures; one being my husband and daughter and our sweet friend Abigaile!
    May the Lord bless your family as you continue to share what Jesus has done in your lives!

  5. God’s hand is certainly with you! Thank you for sharing. God bless and keep up the good work.

  6. Our family was so encouraged listening to various of your seminars and talking to Sarah. Hearing The Joy of Young Womanhood was one of my favorite parts of the conference – thank you for sharing, Sarah! My friend and sisters and I had some good conversations afterwards, which was a blessing. We look forward to seeing you all again somewhere down the road!

  7. Hello. I had a question about the picture with the words:

    “John and Anna giving Brothers and Sisters, Best Friends Forever (formerly Dwelling Together in Unity).”

    Do you offer a CD on this session?

    Thank you.
    Hopefully soon, but we haven’t had time yet.

  8. I would love if you would post the recipe for the picture of the crockpot meal.


    It’s nothing complex. Cut up roast, onions, potatoes, carrots and a few mushrooms. Very easy.
