Hi From Abu Dhabi

Posted by Gregg on Oct 31, 2010 in Blog Stuff

Hallee and I are enjoying being in each others’ company in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This is a fascinating city – a blend of cultures and time like you’ve never seen before. We listen to the Islamic call to prayer that is blasted throughout the city with loud speakers while we watch skyscrapers get built. Mosques are nestled next to glass and steel. Women in full burkas vie for shopkeepers’ attentions with women in tank tops and acid washed bluejeans.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 15 – His Reputation

I read in a marriage book one time to be careful with whom you share your marital problems, because it’s very easy to update friends on the problems, but we tend to forget to update on the progress. If you’re like me, you can sit there and think of friends who seem to constantly trash talk their husbands, but who rarely praise them for anything good they’ve done.

A Clue

Posted by Hallee on Oct 29, 2010 in Parenting, preschool activities, Raising boys

We are not a sports oriented family. Kaylee loves to play softball and is very gifted in it. We love going to her games. I’m looking forward to the boys being in sports. But to watch any other kind of sports or even care about any other kind of sports simply doesn’t happen in my family.

Never Shake a Baby

Posted by Hallee on Oct 28, 2010 in Causes, Parenting

This is an online friend’s son. When he was 3-weeks old, his biological father shook him. Sadly, this “man” is being released from prison this week after only serving a 6-year sentence.

Never shake a baby.

Tip: Saving Money On Yeast

Posted by Hallee on Oct 26, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Stewardship

I make all of my bread homemade. About a month into making this commitment, it occurred to me that yeast, the way I was purchasing it, isn’t cheap. On sale, it seems like I could find the three-envelops of yeast for about $1.10. One loaf of bread, one batch of buns, one patch of pita bread, two pizza doughs — all of those take one envelope of yeast.I make all of my bread homemade.

Pink Ribbon Giveaway Week 4: Maker’s Hands Apron

Posted by Hallee on Oct 24, 2010 in Breast Cancer Awareness, Causes, Giveaways

When I approached my friend Raechel, the talented seamstress of Maker’s Hands, about making something for this giveaway month, she got excited. She had found this amazing fabric and couldn’t wait for the excuse to make it into an apron. I LOVE this fabric. It’s unique and not overly pink.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 14- His Integrity

There was a time in our marriage when there was little trust between me and Gregg. I’d say one thing and he wouldn’t believe it. He’d say another thing and I wouldn’t believe it. It was a very dark time in our lives, and even typing about it and thinking about itelicits a bit of an emotional reaction in my heart.
