Happy Birthday, Dad!

Happy Birthday, Dad!

How grateful we are to the Lord for your life and testimony. Most wouldn’t know that in your teens, your heart was broken when your parents divorced. You didn’t know the Lord at that point either, so it was the hardest thing you’d ever experienced. But on December 5th, 1975, your life made a complete change as you repented of your sin and asked Jesus to be your Savior! I stand amazed at the godly man you are. Even though you didn’t grow up in a Christian home, you determined to learn how to raise a family for Jesus. And you did! You truly have given us a godly heritage, and every single one of us Maxwell young people are grateful for that!

If I were to describe Dad’s character/personality in six words it’d be: gentle, compassionate, dedicated, disciplined, enthusiastic, honest.

We love you, Dad! Happy Birthday!

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to
give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope
that is in you with meekness and fear.”

(1 Peter 3:15)

  1. Happy Birthday, Steve! I cannot begin to state what you and your family have meant to me and mine. If I could simply wrap my arms around you, give you a hug, and say thanks! Thanks for inspiring us. Thanks for praying for us. Thanks for speaking into our lives. Thanks for setting a standard that families can look to. Thanks for being a man, husband, dad and grandpa we can all look up to. Thanks!
    Thank you Brother.

  2. Birthday greetings also from the UK. Thank you for your many years of encouragement. We hope you have a blessed day.
    Thank you.

  3. Happy Birthday, Mr. Maxwell! I had assumed that such a Godly man must have been raised by good Christian parents, so I was surprised to read that your parents were not Christians and got divorced. You overcame so much to become the strong Christian role model you are for your kids and grandkids!
    Thank you. Our God is so very gracious.

  4. Happy Birthday Mr. Maxwell! May the Lord our God continue to bless you and use you for his will!
