Feed My Starving Children Marketplace

We’ve had it on our hearts to share with you about Feed My Starving Children Marketplace.

Note: This post is not an affiliate post. We love FMSC Marketplace, and we wanted to tell you all about it.

Christopher and Anna Marie first introduced us to this by giving Mary headbands from the marketplace. Last fall, Christopher, Joshua, Mary, and Anna volunteered one evening with a team to put together packets of food for children in need. (The parent website is called Feed My Starving Children.)

Feed My Starving Children marketplace not only provides income for artisans in poor countries but also helps to fund FMSC’ ministry to kids.

We love their mugs. I am serious. Love, love, LOVE them! They fit so well in your hand, they feel nice, and they come in gorgeous colors. What more could you want? (Note: we ordered several recently, and they didn’t have the Peace and Joy on them, so the items do vary some.)

Their headbands are versatile and great to pair with outfits. They’ve changed their style from a double band recently to a single, so here’s the closest to what Mary has. View the headband.

Their baskets are amazing. We gave the one above to Mom for Mother’s Day. The quality is extremely good, and I love the sea-green thread accent. They don’t have that exact one at the moment, but they offer a large assortment of baskets here.

With Christmas coming up, keep FMSC Marketplace in mind. It’s a great way to help those in need!


“But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need,
and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth
the love of God in him? My little children, let us not
love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”

1 John 3:17-18

Sarah’s New Book Launches Wednesday, November 14th

Sarah Maxwell

I’m so excited to share that you’ll be able to pre-order my new book, Wednesday, November 14th, at 8 am Central Time! I’ll have a blog post with all the details and a video launching at that time. We estimate books to begin shipping the week of November 26th.

Hint: This is a fiction kids’ book with brand-new characters, Emma, 10, and Ethan, 8, and set in an adorable small town.

Mark your calendars for November 14th.

Here are some comments from my test readers:

“Once again, Sarah captivates the hearts and minds of children while powerfully portraying the importance of Jesus in our everyday lives. This book is one that will be talked about at our house for many years to come.” Kelli, mom

“Another great adventure book by Sarah Maxwell. Every chapter left me hanging!” Ezra, 11


“Let the words of my mouth, and the
meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.”
Psalm 19:14

Happy Birthday, Anna!

Anna Maxwell

Our sweet Anna celebrates another year today! It’s exciting to see the Lord pour out His blessings on her life. Anna thrives with ministry to kids, and the Lord has expanded that. She and Mary are involved in a Bible club twice weekly for kids after school.

Anna loves to serve, and it’s really neat to see the areas she excels in. Whether it’s planning and shopping for Operation Christmas Child boxes (a huge undertaking with the number they do!), babysitting for a relative, planning out Bible club, or spearheading Saturday organizing projects, Anna is one incredible gal! Her energy rarely runs low; she just goes and goes!

Anna is also talented with InDesign (layout software). She’s great with the program and uses it for Titus2 and one of the brother’s businesses.

Anna, we love you and pray God’s richest blessings on you in this coming year!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Sister!


Bible club
Anna makes it a special point to shop with the nieces and nephews for OCC.
These three share a special bond.

I think this beautiful picture sums up Anna’s love for kids!
Here she and Mary are with all twelve nieces and nephews.

“But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice:
let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them:
let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous;
with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.”
Psalm 5:11-12

Autumn Splendor

Autumn has been at its peak here in Kansas the past week. Golden yellows, burnt oranges, brilliant golds, and ruby reds have blended together to create a glorious testimony to God’s creation.

We’ve enjoyed family times, walks and runs, time with littles, and work projects.

This past week has also been finalizing my book before it goes to press. I’m very excited to share more with you soon! I’ll have the exact pre-order date to announce shortly, but it will be about mid-November. God has been very gracious, and all that has gone into pulling this together is incredible!


We girls recently took a great Saturday run
through downtown to the Riverfront Park.

Saturday work projects!

“The heavens declare the glory of God;
and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
Psalm 19:1

Meet Up at The Apologetics Conference?

Anyone going to the EPS Apologetics Conference: Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World in Parker, Colorado, November 15-17th? Jesse and Steve will be there and would love to meet up with you.

If you haven’t heard of the conference, it is Thursday and Friday evenings and Saturday morning. The cost is quite reasonable: $49 per person.

Steve and Jesse have never been to this conference before, but the speakers look good and Steve has read two of the speakers’ books. Steve and Jesse are looking forward to their trip together and the conference.

If you are going and would like to meet up with Steve and Jesse sometime during the conference, you can e-mail Steve (steve@titus2.com) and let him know so you can exchange contact numbers to figure out a meeting time and place.

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope
to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you
at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 1:13


Happy 8th Anniversary, Christopher and Anna Marie!

L-R: Joshua, Ruthanne, Lydia, Daniel, Christopher, Anna Marie, and Elizabeth Maxwell

Happy 8th Anniversary to my brother, Christopher, and his sweet wife, Anna Marie! It’s exciting to see the Lord’s blessing upon their lives over these past 8 years. Their glowing family is proof enough (see above 🙂 ).

I’d love to hear from some of our readers who have been following their journey since their courtship and marriage 8 years ago.

Serving Jesus,

“Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed,
but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
Psalm 127:5
