Yesterday, on my main Facebook and on my Hallee the Homemaker Facebook, I posted this:

Ode to the mother of the autistic child who’s had every schedule in his life obliterated by the Christmas holiday and a continuous succession of snow days…

Menu Monday! 27 JAN 14

Posted by Hallee on Jan 27, 2014 in menus & menu planning

It has been an entire year since my last Menu Monday! Wow!

It is CRAZY how much easier life goes when I make a menu for the week. And, honestly, when I’ve not been putting it up on this blog, I’ve not been really creating one at home, either…

Emergency Yogurt Spoon (Functional Origami)

Posted by Hallee on Jan 26, 2014 in Food Art, Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips, Snacks

If you have yogurt with a foil lid but no spoon, you can make your own spoon, no problem. The only requirement I think I have is that the lid to your yogurt needs to be the sturdy foil type lid.

DIY: Toothpaste as Cleaning Agent

Posted by Hallee on Jan 24, 2014 in Homemaking with Hallee, Housekeeping

CAREFULLY apply the toothpaste to the cloudy lens keeping it away from your paint. Use an old toothbrush you are about to throw away anyway and scrub in a circular brushing motion overlapping as you go. There is no need to floss.

Brown Sugar & Walnut Skillet Cake

Posted by Hallee on Jan 23, 2014 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Recipes

When I decided to make this cake, it took less time to make the batter than it took to preheat the oven. You use a whisk to make it, not a mixer, which means you can whip it up in little time and the cleanup is very easy. It’s a delicious, dense cake – almost like a Blondie.

Difficult and Terrifying

Posted by Hallee on Jan 20, 2014 in Christian Faith, fellowship, inspiration

A few weeks ago, my pastor asked me to give my testimony to the church regarding this blog post. I have to tell you, that was probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever done. I wanted to tell him no…

The Hunger Games

Posted by Hallee on Jan 15, 2014 in Christian Faith

I’m not a reader. I used to be. I used to be the kind of reader who read in the car at stop lights and preferred solitary lunches at work so I could get another chapter in. I was a voracious reader. I had a library card and knew the owner of the used book store’s grandchildren’s names.

But, then I started writing. And, out of nowhere…

Snakebook and other Human Distancers

Posted by Gregg on Jan 12, 2014 in biblical manhood, Christian Faith, Family, holiness, Holy matrimony, Life, Marriage

In our fallen world, my duties are pretty clear as the male half of the Biblical ONE that is our holy state of matrimony. I am to follow the “three P’s” principle to act as high Priest of my home, Provide for my home, and Protect my home and loved ones. That is what the Bible requires of husbands and fathers.

If you read the third Chapter of Genesis, you will discover the very often overlooked fact that Adam was standing right next to his wife the entire time the serpent tempted her…
