Elizabeth Grace Maxwell Has Arrived!

Elizabeth Grace was born this morning (February 23rd), at 4:21 a.m.! This precious bundle of 9 lb. 5 oz. has been met with delighted enthusiasm. Anna Marie and Elizabeth are doing great; we were blessed with a smooth labor and delivery.

Elizabeth: Consecrated to God
Grace: God’s unmerited favor

Our prayer is that Elizabeth will be one whose obedience and consecration to God make her a channel of His grace to others.

Elizabeth Grace Maxwell

“And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the
commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”
(Luke 1:6)

Yes, thankful the baby came before the family hit the road for Fort Smith! I (Sarah) am staying back to help with childcare.

Meeting Elizabeth

Sweet Anna Marie and her newest little girl

Rejoicing in God’s goodness,
Christopher & Anna Marie, Joshua, Ruthanne, Lydia, Daniel, and Elizabeth Maxwell

  12. Congratulations!!!! The picture with the whole family is just wonderful. Elizabeth Grace is the name of my oldest sister, who was born too early decades ago and stayed on this earth only a few weeks. It touches my heart to see this precious, healthy little Elizabeth Grace. God bless you all.

  13. Congratulations amd praise God for Elizabeth Grace Maxwell. She is beautiful and is a blessing to add to your lovely family.

  14. Congratulations! I love when people name their fifth child (and it is a girl) Grace as the middle name as that is what we did as well with our fifth as the number five being the number of grace in the Bible. We never knew what the gender was with all seven of our children and we were thrilled to have a girl as our fifth as she was actually born on her great grandmother’s birthday for whom she was named after, Sylvia Grace.

  15. I love babies. What an awesome gift. Anna Marie looks beautiful as always. Elizabeth Grace is just as precious as can be!


  16. I’ve been a perpetuual blog-checker these past few days and am delighted to see this news! Congratulations to all and welcome sweet Elizabeth Grace! Anna Marie, you are beautiful!

  17. Congratulations! What joy! Miss Elizabeth is precious. Isn’t Ruthanne’s middle name Elizabeth? That will be a sweet connection for them as sisters. 🙂

  18. Congratulations on your new little girl! She is beautiful and Anna Marie looks radiant! I love her name, it is beautiful and meaningful. These pictures are wonderful, thanks for sharing them with us.

  19. Oh how sweet! Congratulations to Christopher and Anna Marie and the four kiddos! Mom and baby are glowing in the last picture!

  20. God bless Elizabeth. What verse does Anna have over their bed? You always choose such meaningful scripture so I am curious.

  21. Congratulations! what an adorable little one, Elizabeth Grace. She will fit right in this sweet family. Prayers and much love to you all.

  22. I just found your blog a couple months ago and would love to meet your family someday. Congratulations on the new arrival! Elizabeth happens to be my middle name, and Grace Elisabeth is the name of my three-year-old cousin. And we both have February birthdays too. Babies are so sweet. I was the oldest of 14 children (8 girls and 6 boys) and have a 16 month-old-son and a two-month-old son. I’m glad Anna Marie has had such smooth home births. My first was a planned home birth, but we had to go to the hospital shortly before he was born. And my second arrived safely at home for which we were very thankful. God bless you all.

  23. congratulations anna marie & christopher…. your daughter is soooo cute. please make sure to rest anna marie.

  24. Congratulations! The pictures are heart-warmingly perfect; thanks for sharing! We’re expecting our 7th in May, and at least five of our children share a first or middle name with one of yours. (Not uncommon when using Biblical names, I know!) Blessings as you adjust to being a family of 7!

  25. O she is just soooon sweet, olive the name. Really cute girl. Glad all went well. Will be praying for you all?

  26. Congratulations to Anna-Marie and Christopher. What a wonderful family they have. Cute Elizabeth is so precious.Your photos are lovely as always.
    Praying for you all

  27. Praise the Lord for a safe arrival.
    Lovely name.
    Love all the pictures!
    So precious!
    Congratulations to you all.
    Sarah you are so sweet to stay home and help, bless you.
    Sending our love from the UK.
    God bless,

  28. Praise the Lord for a safe and healthy delivery of Elizabeth Grace! It is so encouraging to see many prayers answered! May God bless you and your family as you seek to teach baby Elizabeth the ways of our Lord. We have an Elizabeth as well,but have always called her Bess.

  29. Congrats! This is so exciting! I think Elissa’s due pretty soon right? I hope she was a safe delivery as well!

  30. Congratulations!!! What a precious bundle! And Anna Marie looks so pretty! I seem to remember that I looked rather haggard in pics with my newborns. 🙂 And there is Anna Marie, looking all fresh and radiant! You have a beautiful family – thanks so much for sharing these pictures!

  31. Oh, isn’t Elizabeth Ruthanne’s middle name? I think I remember that. Does the name Elizabeth have some significance in Anna Marie’s family? My mother’s family has a few names like that and so does my husband’s, but I don’t think we’ve ever used the same name more than once among siblings.

    Also, will you be sharing that cookie pic? I bet it’s cute!

    1. Yes, you’re right! Anna Marie and Christopher love the name Elizabeth, meaning consecrated to God, and they like to name their children after godly men and women from Scripture whose character they would like them to emulate. It also happens to be an extra special name to GiGi as it was her mother’s name! We realized we forgot to post that pic. We’ll be doing that soon!

  32. She is absolutely beautiful and I love the photo of the little ones looking at their new baby sister! Sarah, it’s such a blessing that you are able to stay behind and help out while the rest of the family is gone. Congratulations to the entire family on this precious new addition!

  33. Elizabeth was the mother of John the Baptist. There are beautiful stories about her faithfulness to God.

    She is a beautiful baby. Congratulations to the Maxwell clan!

  34. Congratulations!!! God is good. What a beautiful family and such an adorable baby. We love the pictures. Thank you for sharing your family with us.
