Happy Thanksgiving 2020!

The Maxwells, left to right: Mary, Anna, Steve & Teri, Sarah

Our hearts of full of gratefulness to the Lord Jesus “who only doeth wondrous things” (Psalm 72:18).

We are grateful for salvation. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

We are thankful for family, including the addition of four in 2020 (Jesse marrying Anna and babies Simon Peter, Caleb, and Elliot).

We are thankful for you, our Titus2 readers. Thank you for your love and encouragement.

May today be a special day of remembering all the Lord has done for you this past year. Our God is so faithful and good!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love,
The Maxwells

and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalm 107:21)

Announcing Learning Lessons, Book 2 in Hill Top Adventures

Learning Lessons, Book 2 in Hill Top Adventures, is now available and will begin shipping right away!

Watch the video and read more below.

Learning Lessons

Emma’s world takes on a new sparkle now that she’s a Christian and learns to forgive Aunt Shannon for the accident that took her little sister’s life. But trouble is brewing with Landlady over Taffy.

The autumn days fly by with adventures at the coffee shop job, helping with Hunter’s leaf business, Hill Top’s city-wide yard sale, and a day at the library. All the while, tension builds with Landlady, and when Emma is faced with her biggest fear, what will she do?

Learning Lessons will keep you on the edge of your seat! I LOVED it!!!” Angélica, 11

“This book is not just for kids! I was very pleased with the strong messages of choosing to forgive, despite the devastating circumstances that may try to consume us… and also the power of loving people. It all felt very real and was easy to relate to.” Olivia, mom

The book also includes 10 illustrations, with three being double spreads (so 13 full-page illustrations). I’ll give you a peek below at one of my favorites. Learning Lessons is my longest book so far with 243 pages and 23 chapters.

Although I recommend reading Finding Change (Book 1 in Hill Top Adventures) first, it’s not absolutely necessary. I give enough hints of what happened in the last book, one could read this as a standalone.

Wholesome kids’ reading books are hard to find, and what could be better than gifting kids you love this Christmas with these books? Order 4 or more copies of Learning Lessons, and save 10%. Or, order all of my books for only $99. That’s over 2000 pages of quality reading! Also, free shipping for orders of $25* or more in the United States.

Don’t miss our announcement below of the 14th special edition of Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit also releasing today!

I’m so grateful for God’s grace in enabling me to get the book done this year.

Love,
Sarah

“Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel,

We’re also excited to release a special edition of Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit. Teri added a bonus chapter. Watch the video below for more details.

Homeschooling moms have a tough job balancing the home, being helpmeets to their husbands, and homeschooling. Teri was in the homeschooling trenches for 30 years. This book came from the real-life lessons she learned through struggles with anger, depression, and more in the midst of her homeschooling life.

“But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible,
even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit,
which is in the sight of God of great price” (1 Peter 3:4).

We’re excited to share the release of my new book will be Tuesday, November 17th, at 9am, Central. We’ll announce it here on the blog and also on Titus2’s main page. We expect to begin shipping that week. I can’t wait to share the release!

“This book was so interesting that I just wanted to keep reading it!” Jedidiah, 9

“The message of choosing to forgive through devastating circumstances was so powerful and real… and was portrayed beautifully in this book.” Olivia, mom

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).

Anna’s Birthday Party

We had such a wonderful Saturday celebrating Anna’s birthday as a family!

As goes our birthday traditions, Anna chose the meals. She and Mary enjoyed a run first thing (due to my injury in June, I’m not up to running yet), and then we had a family breakfast. In the afternoon, she helped with a Good News club.

It seems it has been a while since we’ve been together for a birthday party, and Nathan and John’s crew joined us. Happy family times.

We’re so blessed by Anna’s life and testimony!

Love,
Sarah

Lunch with Gigi
Then our dessert + evening with the crew. Oreo pie for dessert!
You’ll often find Anna and Mary doing something with kids: whether at home or church!
Mom with Debi and Elliot
Elliot’s smile is adorable!
Bible time as a family. I love seeing how my brothers are training their kids in the Lord too, and their kiddos read Scripture so well!
Benji was so excited about his gift. He gave Anna a precious treasure of his–a mini level!
I think Ellie was a little nervous surrounded by these two.
Abby made the pink hat for Anna (and yes, you can tell we’re now living in COVID times as you can see Anna received a mask as well: polka dots add a nice touch).

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Campaigning in the Neighborhood

Yesterday morning, Nathan and Melanie’s kids decided to campaign from their driveway. They all made signs and then went out front as people in the neighborhood were on their way to work. Folks honked, waved, and some ignored as they drove by. These kids have also spent many hours with their family doing local campaigning for Kansas races. This was such a cute picture, I just had to share!

Love,
Sarah

“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake:
whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them
that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of
them that do well” (1 Peter 2:13-14).
