  1. Wow, he actually did some work himself! I don't recall many blogs about him actually "working", only dictating to others what to do. (I think I remember one post about him changing the car oil a long time ago.) Usually he just drives the bus, "preaches" or "writes". Mary sure has a lot of clothes in her closet. I guess the Maxwell's aren't stingy on that end. A couple pictures of Joshie. He sure is a little cutie! I love the little space between his front teeth. I can't make up my mind who he resembles the most, I'm thinking Stevie.
  2. In the latest Dad's Corner, Steve Maxwell outlines his plan to end abortion; "I expect most reading this article are like I am, and you hate abortion. You have voted to get people into office who will stand in the legislatures of our land against abortion. You probably give financially to groups that offer alternatives to abortion and seek to counsel away from abortion those who would consider it. Maybe you have stood on a street corner with other Christians carrying a sign crying out against abortion. There may be other ways you are involved in combatting abortion in our nation. I think those are all wonderful and necessary things for us to be doing to fight abortion. I wonder, though, if we are using the most powerful and yet the simplest tool that we have available to every one of us to stop abortion. Let’s go back to the Old Testament and look at Israel when they were in bondage in Egypt. What did Israel do when they had a great need? They cried out to the Lord!" He goes on to say he has added a plea to end abortion to each of his prayers. This includes his prayers before and after each session on the Maxwell traveling show, and when he prays for another person's needs. I wonder how that will go over when he prays for wait staff in restaurants? I've often wondered, and I'm not even snarking here, why an all powerful God would need prayer upon prayer, plea upon plea, to do something? Especially something he supposedly hates as much as abortion? Is it kind of like when your kids try to wear you down by asking for something over and over? Anyway, the entire Corner is here; titus2.com/corners/dads-corner/will-you-sigh-and-cry.html
  3. I was just reading the Homeschoolers Anonymous blog, and ran across this post: http://homeschoolersanonymous.wordpress ... o-control/ It was horrifying, and sounded exactly like Steve Maxwell's advice.

    Steve wants YOU!! (Maxwell)

    If you've purchased a home debt free, he wants your phone number and email! Guys only! Women don't "count". They are working on a new "resource". Guess that means a book with testimonials...

    Making Great Conversationalists

    Here it is FJ friends - my book review of MGC. The book arrived with a pretty bookmark with a bible verse and a heap of advertising for all the other Maxwell books. The positives first: It is well laid out, simple and easy to read. Each chapter has a lesson and examples and a set of exercises for a parent to do with their child. Ok, now content ... Preface We have trouble talking to others and realised this is because others lack conversation skills. Our children have to be able to talk to non-Christians in order to preach at them. Sarah spent hours proof reading the book. Anna transferred the book from word to publisher. Joseph chose the fonts, did the layout and designed the cover. Aren't they amazing! Chapter 1: Good or Bad Conversations We start with some examples of bad conversationalists: a five year old girl who refuses to speak to an unknown lady in a grocery store, a teenage boy who only gives minimal answers to a doctor, a young man who has trouble asking a girls father for permission to court and a young wife and mother who, when her husband arrives home from work, tells him about her day was instead of listening to him and serving him a nice dinner. THESE PEOPLE ARE BAD. Steve tells us what each of them should have said. The five year old, on being complemented on her hair by a stranger, should have said "Thank you. My mommy likes to sometimes make pigtails for me. My name is Cynthia. What's your name?" The Practical Side Steve gives us lessons at the end of each chapter called "The Practical Side". In this chapter we should (1) read the chapter (2) sit down alone with each of our children and have a conversation (3) evaluate the conversation using the eight questions Steve provides.

    The Maxwell beards continue...

    From the pics of their Belleville conference, Steve, Joseph and John and are still sporting beards, but Jesse is not. Very interesting. I also think it's funny how sparse all the beards are. They all look like they are sporting a few days of stubble, not actual beards.
  7. I'm watching the episode "Letter to Gorbachev" on TV Land and Rose was talking about her upcoming press conference. Rose is nervous and Blanche tells her all journalists are the same, the put on their pants one leg at a time, except for that sportswriter Steve Maxwell, who likes to just jump in both legs at a time.

    Happy Birthday Stevie M

    Nothing much to snark about on Poor Sara's birthday post for the Great Leader. Just the normal bum licking to inflate his already large ego. Seems like they will be in for a treat of TWO animal crackers this evening
  9. Steve must have read some of your evil posts drooling over John not-Marie. And occasionally Joseph ex-of-Elizabeth. The latest post on titus2.com ends off with this color-defrauding picture of the single boys and Steve's warning to you all, straight from the Bible titus2.com/blog/index.php/2013/07/11/today-5/
  10. ...even more hilarious considering my church is pretty liberal and all about LOVE and COMMUNITY. The real Stevie would have a fit.
  11. As most long-time readers at FJ know, Steve and Teri Maxwell – but mostly Steve, since he’s the undisputed God-King of that family – have a very ungenerous attitude toward those who want to learn from Maxwell materials without paying for the information. (These non-payers include, but are not limited to, people who check books out at the local library - those bastards!) Since the Maxwells are introducing a new product they believe every ‘courtship-minded’ family will want, I thought this would be a good time to review how miserly the Maxwells can be in sharing what they believe to be important information – and just how condescending they are to those who can’t afford to pay for grossly overpriced courseware in another way than by instalments. While the below paragraph no longer seems to appear on the Maxwells` product pages, it had been there for a long time: They seem almost haunted by the idea that some undeserving individual – a person who didn’t pay in Caesar’s coin – may read through a Maxwell publication without immediately enriching the author(s). Likely the largest group of people interested in accessing Maxwell products, and who would prefer to do so without having to pay, are parents with limited incomes who borrow books from friends or from the library. (Hopefully most people in those circumstances, frustrated in their effort to find books by any of the Maxwells at a local library, will simply choose a better alternative from among the available books.) Not only do the Maxwells fret that anyone should benefit in any way by their work without having to pay for it, but they’re also unkind to paying (and potential) customers in at least two ways: The first way, of course, is in how much more they charge than other vendors – especially when it comes to courseware at ITonRamp. There are so many places both online and locally that offer these courses at a significantly lower price. And the reason for these high prices can be found in the company vision statement: In other words, the Maxwells reinvented the wheel here and expect customers to pick up all that extra cost for the time invested in Jesusifying computer training resources. (And so it seems that, as with all things wedding for example, the price tag for an otherwise average product can be marked up significantly by invoking The Lawd!) The second way the Maxwells mistreat customers – and this doesn’t even include the ridiculous gender segregation at ITOnRamp – is by condescending to those who can’t afford to pay in a lump sum. From the FAQ: I can understand why the Maxwells wouldn’t want to do all the paperwork required of a company that offers split payments. It would be perfectly acceptable for the site to say no: `Sorry. We do not offer payment plans.` They don't stop there, however, but go on to offer advice so condescending and simplistic that I can't imagine why even the most hard-core fundie would still want to buy material from these guys. I, for one, can hardly wait until the Maxwells' latest product comes out. I'm so sure it won't be a whitewash of all the problems the Maxwells have had with the courtship model, followed by yet more drivel about how Steve has discovered a way to make courtship more likely to succeed.
  12. Sorry if this has been posted before. Kevin Swanson phone interview with Steve Maxwell from 2012. generationswithvision.com/broadcast/preparing-sons-to-provide-for-their-households/ Nothing groundbreaking here but it was interesting to actually hear Steve-o speak. Steve gives an overview of the family business, touches on his love of flying (and why it's bad), and the beauty of having his family praying and crying on New Years Eve.
  13. All you patriarchal homeschoolers who think "government" schools are nothing more than breeding grounds for sin: Take a look at this video http://ble.ac/13S0xmI Two nasty stinky "government" high school basketball teams and their coaches went out of their way to make a developmentally disabled student feel like a hero - and judging by the later parts of the video, so did every fan in the stands. But that doesn't happen in the evil "government" schools, does it? What's that? Oh, it gained fame precisely because it is such a rare thing to happen amongst the great unwashed? Where females and males are encouraged more and more to pursue that which they're good at, instead of what their gender identity says they ought to do? Listen closely to the kid on the opposing team who made it possible for the disabled student to have yet another try at sinking a basket: he says he was "trained" to treat people by the golden rule. Wow. Parents who take their children to churches run by priests and pastors, or maybe don't take their kids to church at all, still can teach the right things and raise children who turn into good adults. Something to think about.
  14. I found this blog in a google search, Raising Servants of Christ. This woman, the married mother of two teens, seems to have become more fundy in the last couple of years. Apparently this came about from watching the Duggar show on TLC. She then read their book, which led her to MOTH, which led her to the Maxwells. My guess is she'll become more and more fundy as she gets deeper and deeper into the Maxwell books and tapes. She has bought several, and is saving her money for more. She seems very easily led. http:// raisingservantsofchrist.wordpress.com/2012/07/10/the-inspring-steve-and-teri-maxwell-and-why-we-love-their-books/ ETA: She had her tubes tied after her second child was born, and of course became "convicted" of not being able to have more children. They decided to become foster parents after realizing a reversal would be too expensive. I'll give them credit for being foster parents. Not an easy decision to make. Edited by SouthCarolinaGirl79 to break link.
  15. Today's post: I get the sensation he is talking to US. I'll also note that NRAnna's holiday frumper & cardigan choices are Highly Unfortunate. On the other hand, she looks genuinely happy in these pictures: titus2.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/DSC_9366.jpg titus2.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/DSC_9491.jpg
  16. I've never been clear on how long they've been in Leavenworth. Were the reversals born in KS or WA? Did they move directly from WA to KS or did they live somewhere else in between? And why Leavenworth of all places? Most places in the southern U.S. are more conservative than Leavenworth. Hell, in Texas they wouldn't have to pay state income tax!
  17. Does anyone else love Carolyn Hax as much as I do? I thought of Steve Maxwell when I was reading her column today. A woman wrote in saying she gets super jealous when her boyfriend gets work communications from female coworkers. Steve (and, god, especially Teri) would've done well to internalize Carolyn's advice: Maxwells in a nutshell, right? Teri was too depressed to ever realize he needed to be told no and to work his shit out himself, until it was too late for everyone.
  18. titus2.com/blog/index.php/2012/08/22/family-times-3/ I challenge them to cite even one example of anything that do that is NOT "family time."

    Steve Maxwell Emailed Me....

    I commented that he should share a Pepsi with Teri and for God's sake find a husband for Sarah.....

    New Corners

    New Corners are up on the Titus 2 blog - This gem from Steve - And from Teri - Poor Teri. No more Pepsi since her commanding officer, er, I mean husband, has forbidden it.

    ANOTHER Maxwell courtship???

    OK, so, I am starting this from the discussion of the Duggar graduation pics. I think it deserves a new thread mainly because I couldn't care less about the Duggars but and kinda Maxwell obsessed. Here is the link to the Duggar graduation album. Of interest to Maxwell freaks are photos #12, #16 and #25. Below I have pasted my observations from the other thread. ncb wrote: I am trying to tell which three kids were with Steve (per his corner posted yesterday). I think I see Mary and maybe Anna in pic #16, maybe Mary in the pink shirt and Anna in the blue? The skirt on the person wearing the blue shirt looks to be Maxwell length. I think we can assume Joseph didn't go and John has been working a lot on Joseph's house, who knows about Jesse. In pic #25 in the back left corner I almost think I see Sarah in the Khaki green shirt she was wearing in their recent post. Could Steve have taken the three girls? This has me very curious...maybe he is actually going places other slightly less crazy fundies go. Of course, that was a big crowd so, it may not have been a Maxwell/Duggar thing but may have been a place they met up with others as well. After going through the pics I am fairly convinced (or in their lingo, convicted) that only the Maxwell girls are there... OK, now I am really straining my eyes on this one BUT again looking at pic #16 but this time behind the kitchen counter in the lower right corner I think I see Sarah Maxwell in the khaki shit and very close to her is a red head...perhaps John-Marie? Then, look back at picture #25 and if that is Sarah in the khaki green shirt, the red head is standing right behind her. Could it be that they are finally getting around to pairing the red headed guy (forget his name) up with one of the girls? I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be Anna but, there is definitely something strange afoot here...

    Hey, Steve gave a CYBER SMILE!

    ... if it's true that he's the only one that answers comments on the blog. Maybe he's extra pleased with the buzz (read: blog hits) over Joseph and Elizabeth's engagement. In another of his replies below this one, there was an actual smiley face like this ... but it doesn't show when copied over here.
  24. Justme

    Weird new corner.....

    First Stevie says any man & woman can live happily in a marriage if they want to..... (I'm not so sure of that, there are many many people I could not be happily married to.) Then he goes on about how he & Teri "love the children so much" (Stevie, I've got news for you, they are NOT children any more) but still make time for "dates". Then he gushes on about how much he "appreaciates" Teri, etc.... I wonder if he got a lot of emails telling him what a tyrant he was making him show his "softer" side. Also, Teri's talks about how ill Granddad is getting. Poor Granddad. It's got to be so hard on Gigi seeing her husband so ill.

    Steve, Steve, Steve! You Have Done it Again!

    Anyone read this yet? titus2.com/blog/index.php/2012/04/13/bunnies-and-baskets/#respond Ugh. Can I say violent thoughts may have crossed my mind upon reading this? It made me really, really angry. His self righteous, holier-than-thou attitude is so blind to the fact that he has just managed to undo any perceived steps towards a "fruitful life" gained through denying chocolate bunnies! Steve Maxwell, you are a tool and a nutcase. And not only that, but you are an ABSOLUTE bastard to your family. Truly, I think a lot of people are going to be very relieved (secretly and not so secretly) when you shuffle off this mortal coil. Steve if you read here, let me say one thing. It is not right to rule your family by fear (particularly fear of the outside world). And in the long run, your kids will hate and resent you openly, or at best (for you), be so afraid that they won't admit it. Your training hasn't worked so well, because you can't even trust your adult kids to have some autonomy in their own lives.
