Happy Birthday, Dad!


Happy Birthday, Dad! You are such a blessing to our family.

I (Sarah) love this picture. Climbing a 14er is very challenging at times, but getting to the top is worth it. You can look back and see how far you’ve come. The view is breathtaking! You almost forget how hard it was. In the same way, we’re climbing on this spiritual journey. We’ll face spiritual rock fields, things that take more determination to get through (or around!) but we are determined to keep climbing with the Lord’s strength. Heaven will be worth it all!

Dad’s an amazing example of pursuing the Lord Jesus regardless of how “hard” it is!


  • You love the Lord Jesus with all your heart.
  • You are a wonderful husband to Mom for almost 40 years.
  • You are an incredible Dad!
  • You are an awesome Grandpa.
  • You are a great leader.
  • You inspire others around the world to live for Jesus.

We love you!

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate
us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39

  1. Happy Birthday Mr Maxwell!!!

    The picture of you on top of the mountain speaks volumes about you and your blessed outlook. It’s far better to be a ‘top’ guy and to take the lead thus being a dear leader. My Wonderful husband has similar views.

    “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

    I hope you have a lovely birthday fellowshipping with your family.

    Your book arrived today! We were hoping for yesterday (my birthday) but the Lord knew we would not have even had a second to look at it :). It came today! My husband reads your books aloud to us (we love his voices for all the characters :)). So he read the first chapter after we enjoyed a delicious birthday dinner prepared by Hannah.
    We are looking forward to the rest of the book :).
    The girls would like to know if you have started the next one? They all agree that this is the prettiest cover of all :).
    Glad you all liked the cover. The next one is in the outline stage.

  8. Happy birthday to the amazing godly father of the most godly I personally know. In the struggles we are going through I so pray to have your faith and just don’t know what it is I am missing. I so wish you were closer so I could talk with Teri and compare where I am to where I want to be.

    Happy Birthday Steve. God is smiling on you always.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari
