Time To Say Goodbye

on Sep 4, 2014 in Blog Stuff

headshotOn August 6, 2009, I wrote my first blog post, “And So It Begins.” Kaylee was 12, Scott was 3, and Jeb was just over 1.

Over the course of the next two years, I blogged about living life and parenting these three amazing children while my husband was in Afghanistan. In August 2011, he came home for good. He’d been gone almost 3 years.

Ever since he’s been home I’ve struggled with keeping this blog up. I wanted to stop blogging right after he came home, but I kept at it. I wrote about real food, a Biblical diet, parenting, marriage, romance, life. I connected with readers and loved them and poured my life out to them in an effort to have some sort of positive impact on their lives. In the last year, I’ve written about parenting a son on the autism spectrum and living life with a daughter old enough to date.

It’s time to say goodbye.

In March 2012, I started publishing my books. This year, Gregg and I officially launched Olivia Kimbrell Press to the world.  Balancing blogging and book writing/publishing with marriage, children, and life has simply become too much for me to juggle. I can no longer do it, and I’m tired of going weeks between blogging.

hallee gregg booksI have five years worth of content on this blog and I still get close to a thousand visitors a day. Even though my blog is “out of date”, even though I don’t stay active in Pinterest or Instagram, the search engines still constantly point people to me — and because of that, the site will stay up. God truly blessed me by giving me the words, over and over again, to share with you. I’m not going to take them down.

I am still going to be EXTREMELY active in social media and in life in general. I have a newsletter that I send out once a month that brings readers up to date with my life and gives them book release information. And I have my Hallee Bridgeman Author site.

In the coming months, I’ll be part of a 10-book Inspirational Romance e-book collection that is just going to be 99 cents for the month of October called Red Hot Squeaky Clean Romance. You’ll want to follow me on Facebook or Twitter or sign up for my newsletter so that you don’t miss that amazing deal. I’ll also be releasing my 7-part serialized WWII story, Virtues and Valor, starting September 15th.

I would like for this to NOT be “goodbye”. Rather, I’d like for this to be the simple turning the page from one chapter to another. I’d love for you to follow me in my novelist world, sign up for my newsletter, and stay in touch with me on social media.

Thank you for the years of readership.

In Christ,

Hallee Bridgeman

Today’s Word of Promise

on Aug 14, 2014 in holiness, inspiration

I’m focusing today on the verb “IS”. Do you know what “IS” is? Well, sure, it’s a lot of things. But for this specific post, it’s SINGULAR. That’s right, the verses do not say that the fruits of the Spirit are. What they say is that the fruit of the Spirit is. That means that if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then you can count on a well of love, joy, peace, longsuffering (read: patience), goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.

I have to say — that angers me.

To start with, there’s nothing ‘freeing’ about strangling yourself with a belt. In fact, as far as I know, there’s only one true freedom:

Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36

Mother Theresa said this herself:

There is such terrible darkness within me, as if everything was dead… I do not know how deeper will this trial go—how much pain and suffering it will bring to me. This does not worry me any more. I leave this to Him as I leave everything else. Let Him do with me whatever He wants as He wants for as long as He wants if my darkness is light to some soul…

I’m not making light of depression. I’m not disqualifying emotions, chemical imbalances, or anything of that sort. What I’m saying is that Robin Williams was a man who lived his life with a gift that he used to bring joy to others suffered so much that he felt he could no longer live another second in this world, and in that horrible way of social media his death is being glorified and touted as “freedom”.


Celebrate Romance with My Most Romantic Book Yet!

on Aug 11, 2014 in Writing

Looking through all 8 of my published romance novels, I believe that my most romantic is An Aria for Nick. Nick is such a deep character who has suffered so much in life that you just find yourself rooting for Aria and him to be together so that maybe some of his demons will quiet. As a reviewer said, the romance is sigh-worthy. So, to celebrate Romance Awareness Month, I put An Aria for Nick on sale for just $0.99. That’s a $4 savings.


Have Tricare? Check Your Payment Type

Why is that? Why are there no exceptions? Why is the military’s insurance company mandated to harm the military its supposed to serve?


No More Candy for This One?

on Jun 30, 2014 in Autism, Parenting

Dear world: It isn’t misbehaving. It isn’t hyperactivity. It isn’t too much candy. Or too much soda. Or too little discipline.

It’s called coping.

It’s called an autistic brain coping with this incompatible world the best way that it can.

The Power of Marketing

on Jun 24, 2014 in Life

The day we got to Quantico, I took the boys to the commissary. Up one aisle and down the other, I heard a running stream of commercials from Scott.

“Ants are hard to kill. Raid kills bugs dead. It’s a family company.”
