Happy 22nd Birthday, Mary!

Mary Maxwell

Happy Birthday to our sweet Mary! She gets to spend yet another birthday in the gorgeous mountains. Yesterday, she and Jesse and Anna went on a 14er adventure, and today, Lord willing, we’re planning to do a 14er as a family.

Awesome facts:

  • She loves to spend time with children.
  • She is diligent to memorize Scripture.
  • She makes crazy-good rolls.
  • She has an incredible servant’s heart.
  • She is the master get-any-stain-out-of-clothes expert.
  • She loves caramel lattes.


Happy, happy birthday, Mary! We love you!



“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Matthew 6:33

  2. Happy Birthday!! Would love to know some of her stain fighting secrets. That is one area that seems to haunt me. 🙂

  3. Happy birthday to both Mary & Teri! I hope you enjoy your “happy place” in Colorado and return home refreshed. September is like another January 1st! So great. May God bless, protect and prosper you!

    1. Both Mary and I had both great, but very different, birthdays. Mary loves hiking a 14er on her birthday. So amazing that she has been able to do that so many of her birthdays when we don’t live in Colorado!

  8. Happy Birthday, Mary!

    To you and the rest of the Maxwell family: it takes a lot of personal fitness, mountaineering knowledge and preparedness to accomplish those 14ers. That speaks volumes about your family’s priorities and planning. You are all an inspiration!

    May the Lord grant you all safety and happy times together as you accomplish your hiking goals. Have a blessed time!

    1. Yes, Christi, and Steve and I stepped up our exercise this summer in anticipation of the difficulty of hiking here in Colorado. Jesse researched and picked our 14er hikes this year – the one Steve and I could do and the ones for the others.

  9. Happy Birthday to Mary!
    You are a precious young lady and I’m praying the year ahead will be filled with the Lord’s blessings.
    Enjoy this special time in Colorado with your family! 🙂
    Love, Mrs. Patti

  10. I hope you had a very, very happy birthday, Mary! May this year be amazing for you as you seek God first and live for Him – may His blessings and joy fill your heart to overflowing! 🙂 Thank you so much for your sweet, beautiful example!
    With love in Christ,

    P.S. Way to go on doing 14ers two days in a row!! That’s amazing. From the pictures it looks *beautiful* there!

    1. Mary has celebrated 8 birthdays in a row in Colorado. The first time we went to Colorado as a family vacation was May the year Mary was born in August! We have had lots of years we couldn’t to back but now quite a few sequentially.
