We’re Still Around … Well … Not for Long

Life has been full as we prepare for our first of seven, possibly eight, weekend conferences. This weekend we’re just running out and back to Ft. Morgan. We’ll be home for a few days before leaving for six+ weeks. I have more pictures from last week to share, but I’ll leave you with some current ones.

On the conference side of things, Conyers, Georgia, for September 18th came through. Watch for more to be added.

We leave this afternoon for Colorado. Please join us in praying for lasting, eternal fruit in the lives of many.


Dad worked on huge electrical project on the bus Saturday and into this week.

Welcome back to Kansas humidity. I was spoiled by the Colorado dryness, which I love!

Family times, and how the babies are growing.

Yes, that’s spinach, and we weigh it out and freeze it for our breakfast smoothie. Yumm. Really. You can’t taste the spinach.

Another bus project.

A great new addition to the bus, at least soon it will be: air horns!

Last night, the guys brought many boxes of books to our friends’ home. They kindly ship out all the Titus2 orders while we’re on the road. They also made it possible for us to go on our family trip, as leaving shipping for two weeks would not have been good.

The grandgirls showed up while we were loading.

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” 
James 5:7-8

  1. Can you give us your smoothie recipe? Have a good trip.
    I posted it under an earlier post. It was in response to someone’s comment.

  2. Enjoyed these photos (especially the ones featuring the babies and little girls!). Hope conference preparations go smoothly. 🙂 Continued prayers for ALL the Maxwell family. Love, Mrs. Patti

  3. Beautiful scenery! Glad you all are able to have a chance of relaxation together before starting out on the tour; those can be grueling! Praying for you all!

  4. We are a family of 7 and went to your Denver conference two years ago and I have followed your blog ever since. We had originally planed on going to Fort Morgan tomorrow to see y’all but complications arose and we will be unable to make it.- We are in Kremmling so it is a long drive in addition to unexpected out of state company and long term health issues. Hopefully we can go to another conference someday, until then we will enjoy your books. Would you maybe be able to do a conference in Steamboat Springs or the Silverthorne or Eagle areas? We would definitely try to make it to one if you could.
    Sarah, thank you for your wonderful testimony. As a single gal in her 20’s it has been a real encouragement to me.
    We’re sorry too! We go on invitation and very few have we not been able to respond with a “yes” to.

  5. I always enjoy the postings. Some very good photographers in the family! I am presently in North Coarolina on vacation and will be returning home just before you are in Mt. Airy. I do hope one day I will be able to attend one of your conferences and have the chance to meet all of you. Thank you for your encouragement—I have learned so much from you through your blog and books. Praying also for all your trip preparations. AND FINALLY….. I could just gobble up those grandkids…. THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS AND CUTE !!! 🙂
    Hope to meet you too!

  6. Might sound kind of strange … but it’s actually nice to see a photo (in the bus) of everything not *perfectly* in order at the Maxwells’–it gives me hope, as I still am trying to achieve that “perfect orderliness” with two little ones and a very active schedule. 🙂 I truly do appreciate your Managers of Their Homes book, and the ongoing sharing of yourselves through the blog, as it gives me encouragement and ideas–but it is nice too, to see that all is not lost if there is sometimes a bit of disorderliness. (I recently have come to call it “serene chaos” at our place, because the Lord has been teaching me that maintaining a peaceful spirit is of utmost importance, even when it feels chaotic!) 🙂

  7. Why do you weigh the spinach? Are y’all on a weight loss diet? You don’t look like you need it- you look fantastic!
    It’s just part of the recipe. No, it isn’t a weight loss diet.

  8. Call us nuts around here, but we love raw spinach! We eat a lot of it as a salad or lined along a strip of hummus on a tortilla to make a wrap (we put other things in, too, like pickled asparagus and deli turkey, etc.). BUT, I am impressed you put it into smoothies. My kids will not allow anything green into theirs — must all be berry colored. Ha! Those babies are soooooo cute and I agree with a previous poster, I like seeing a little chaos on the bus. Makes me feel a little more normal. Blessings to you as you rest a little and get ready for the long trip!
