The 2500 Blog Post Celebration Giveaway

We’re giving away 5 gift bundles, and each one has these 4 items: Henry and the Great Society, Finding Change, Simple Faith CD, and Just Around the Corner: Volume 1.

Titus2 Blog Giveaway, 5 sets of the above books and CD

Henry and the Great Society – This fictional, short, heart-rending story is a dynamic read illustrating the futility of pursuing a high consumption lifestyle.

Finding Change – We couldn’t resist including my newest book, which I’m still super excited about.

Simple Faith CD – This CD is a perfect listen for families. It’s a beautiful blend of voices and instruments. My favorite song on the CD just might be Daddy on His Knees, but Give Us Rain could be a close second.

Just Around the Corner: Volume 1 – Almost 400 pages of practical little nuggets for dads and moms written when my parents were in the trenches homeschooling their kids. These are bite-size encouragement, for just that few minutes you have free–say when brushing your teeth? 🙂

Rules for entering the 2500 Titus2 Blog Post Giveaway

Leave a comment below with either why you like the Titus2 blog or something you appreciate about a Titus2 resource.

Entry limited to one comment per person (but individuals in a family are all welcome to enter separately).

Giveaway ends Wednesday, February 6th, at midnight, Central Time. Five winners will be selected randomly from the comments, and you’ll be emailed for your name and address.

Entries are not limited to the United States, but out of the 5 gift sets, we’re designating 1 for an international reader, due to the cost of postage. The first international reader to be drawn will be the winner, and if out of the other 4, there are more, we will re-draw for United States winners.

International readers: please leave your country name in some part of your comment, so we know that’s where you are from!

We reserve the right not to post any comment or entry.

Happy 2500 Blog Post Anniversary!

“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life;
that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”

Celebrating 2500 Titus2 Blog Posts!

This post is number 2500!

Through 2500 posts in 12 1/2 years, here are some interesting stats for you. Don’t miss our very special giveaway, which will appear as a separate post here on the blog, at 8am, Central Time.

What Has Happened in 12 Years

This is the family when we started!

Our family almost tripled in size, from 11 people to 27, but really 28, as we count Melanie’s baby due in May (and with Susannah, we’d have 29).

The Maxwell Family Now!

3 got married

5 kids graduated from homeschool high school, and Mom completed 30 years of homeschooling!

14 grandchildren have been born

15 books and 1 short story have been published.

We have had readers in almost every country!

We traveled and gave over 200 conferences. It was like you traveled the country with us through reading reports and seeing pictures!

The longest break ever in our posting was three weeks, after losing Susannah. I honestly wasn’t sure how to just pick up again with “normal” posts. The Lord gave grace, and slowly, we worked back into posting.

You watched Maxwell brothers purchase their homes debt-free!

To cap it off, a stat on you! You’ve left us 27,724 comments, and we’re grateful for them.
