Energize | Fort Mill/Charlotte and St. Clairsville/Wheeling

Maxwell Family
A very special thank you to Joseph for doing a photo session for us!

We’re excited to share with you dates for our two upcoming conferences. We want you to come, and we’d love for you to encourage friends to attend as well.

These are free conferences, and one never knows when we’ll be back out east again. Often, families will make it a great-get-away-from-home trip, stay in hotels, and enjoy like-minded fellowship along with good teaching.

Although the conferences are free, it does help us know how many to plan for if you register prior.

Can’t wait to see y’all!

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through
the power of the Holy Ghost.”
Romans 15:13

Do You Want to Be Energized?

We’re excited to bring you the Energize! Conference with all new sessions.

Here is part of the line up:

  • Today Children: Tomorrow Leaders
  • How to Have an Awesome Day (for moms)
  • Supersonic Leadership: Is Everyone Strapped In? (for dads)
  • Dating, Courtship, Betrothal, or Whatever


Our first Energize! Conference is Loveland, Colorado, July 18-19th. Loveland is about an hour from Rocky Mountain National Park if you would like to make the conference weekend into a family vacation.

We’re scheduling a fall Energize! tour beginning with Cookeville, Tennessee, September 11th followed by Greensboro, North Carolina, September 12-13th, and Savannah, Georgia, September 25th. Other cities will likely include Orlando, Atlanta, Savannah, Meridian (MS), and more. If you’ve been thinking about scheduling a conference, now is your opportunity as we work on dates. Just drop us an e-mail.

For a behind-the-scenes-Maxwell-photo-op, here you go. Sunday night we planned to get our Energize! photo (we hadn’t been able to in time for the Loveland flyer). The only complication was that a storm was rolling in as we were preparing to leave. Since it looked like we still had some time, we decided to try for it. When we arrived at the location, the guys worked like crazy to get everything set up. The umbrellas which served as reflectors for the lights promptly blew off as the wind was so strong. We scrapped the umbrellas and had to do without. In addition the cable that controlled the lights was not functioning correctly, so Joseph had to use a work-around for that as well.

As Dave, our friend, quickly snapped pictures, lightning flashed in the background, thunder rumbled, and a stiff breeze blew as a cool front dropped the temperature: it was intense and energizing! By the time we finished, it started to sprinkle. Then, after we were packed up and on our way home, it poured. Wow. What timing! It was certainly our most eventful photo session ever! A special thanks to Dave who helped (we’re enjoying a special visit with his sweet family, Liz and Baby Anna).

Joyfully His,
Sarah for the rest

Notice Joseph isn’t in the picture yet–he was working on getting the lights adjusted.


We wanted some bio photos, so we moved through those fast, as the storm was almost upon us. We moved so quick we were running!
