Happy 23rd Birthday, John!

Happy Birthday, John! We are grateful God gifted you to our family, and we delight in your life.

Facts about John:

  • Before John was born, we studied John the Baptist (see John 1:1-36 as an example). Dad and Mom decided John would be the baby’s name if he was a boy, and he was.
  • He loves the Lord Jesus.
  • He can drink a strong, black cup of coffee, with no sweetener whatsoever (gulp!).
  • He is a practical, very handy, fix-it guy. If John can’t fix it, you’re in trouble.
  • He is a hard worker.
  • He loves to help others.
  • He is a gifted troubleshooter.
  • John is a master at mudding, sanding, and caulking.

  1. Happy Birthday John. What a blessing you must be to your family. May God bless your year abundantly.

    Thank you

  2. Happiest of birthdays to you John! May The Lord bless the years ahead of you. Lol @ if John can’t fix it, you’re in trouble.
    What a blessing to have someone like that in the family! Every family should have a handyman/Mr fix it. And a straight,black coffee with no sweeteners? I would of thought he would look a bit like a Deer staring at headlights. 😉
    Love to you all, God bless the Maxwells.
    Thank you!!!

  7. Happy Birthday John!!! We love coffee here too, but it can’t taste like coffee. 🙂
    Thank you. I understand 🙂

  8. Happy Birthday, John!!

    I hope you are enjoying your day. I never learned to drink coffee any other way but straight black. When I get dressed-up coffee, I get a latte from Starbucks, but that is a huge treat. If you get the chance, their blonde roast coffee is really good.

    In Christ,

    Thank you.

    Maxwell family- just want to let you all know what a blessing your family has been to me! My mom has been following your blog since it began, and has used your family as a roll model many times! (I have,in fact, heard “now what do you think Sarah Maxwell would l do in _ situation” once or twice(or to be truly honest-several times!))
    I know your 2014 itinerary isn’t completed yet, but do you have plans to be in East Tennessee this year? I have never been able to attend one of your conferences and was just wondering what this year may hold as far as that goes.It would be wonderful to meet you all. I will keep checking your schedule listings!
    Thank you.
    Likely KY, but nothing in East TN yet.

  10. Happy Birthday John!! May the Lord always bless you and guide your steps, as you serve Him.
    Hugs from Georgia, Mrs. Patti

    P.S. You share a birthday with one of my sons-in-law, Shaun! (and my other son-in-law is named JOHN!). 🙂
    Thank you. Happy Birthday to Shaun.

  11. Happy Birthday, John. I pray the Lord continues to bless you as you serve Him this year. The comment on the blog about being in trouble made me laugh. In our house it’s not really lost unless Pearl can’t find it. It sounds like at your house it’s not really broken unless John can’t fix it????. God Bless,
    The C Family
    Thank you and well put.

  12. Happy birthday John! We hope you had a wonderful day celebrating!
