With Fear & Trembling

Posted by Hallee on Jan 8, 2013 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, Family, holiness, Life

So here it is. Here is my proclamation for the entire world to see forever and ever and always. HERE is what I have to say to every group in this world who feels it necessary to judge how well we are living our lives, running our home, raising our children, and “doing religion” all within the context of our beliefs:

What Veterans’ Day Means to Me

Posted by Hallee on Nov 11, 2012 in Family, Life

I love this country. It is truly the greatest country on earth, with so much promise and potential. I get annoyed a lot of times at gluttony, greed, laziness, entitlement, etc., and I sometimes forget and let those feelings overshadow the fact that there is so much good here, so much hard work that built this land — that we live in a land that people actually die trying to get to.

I am so proud of the military legacy of my family. I pray that my sons continue it, and continue to fight for and stand for America. Here is my annual “What Veteran’ Day Means to Me” posting of the honor of my family’s service to our country:

Posted by Hallee on May 11, 2012 in Blog Stuff, Family, Giveaways, Life

Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day! During this time of war, being a military spouse is one of the hardest jobs out there. If our spouse isn’t deployed, we live in a constant state of waiting for the next deployment. So, if you’re a military spouse, THANK YOU.

Let Them Into the Kitchen

Posted by Hallee on May 8, 2012 in Family, Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

I recently made eggplant parmesan for dinner. (Recipe forthcoming). I had Scott and Johnathan (Jeb) in the kitchen with me, as is typically the norm. Jeb was on his chair watching me cook.

While I was contending with something on the stove, Scott decided to help.

Posted by Hallee on Mar 30, 2012 in Christian Faith, Critical Thinking, Family, Life, Parenting, Raising teens

Yesterday, on the Focus on the Family blog, the post title was “What Do You Think About The Hunger Games?” It posed the question, “Would you permit your son or daughter to watch if they wanted to? Why – or why not?”

Sunday Viewing

Posted by Hallee on Oct 21, 2011 in Christian Faith, Family, Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

Our rule for Sunday viewing is this: it must be a Bible story, or about God or the Bible in some way. We have a HUGE movie selection, and a big portion of our movies are God focused, so there is no problem finding something to watch. We love it when the kids pick something that is a specific Bible story, but we’re happy with Veggie Tales or similar programming. Kaylee has several Christian themed teen appropriate movies and documentaries, and Gregg and I could watch the documentaries, video studies, and movies we have for a solid month and not put a dent in our choices.

Transitions

Posted by Hallee on Oct 5, 2011 in Christian Faith, Family, Life, Love, Marriage, Prayer

I’ve had so many people ask me how the transition of Gregg being home has gone. This past weekend, while Gregg had drill in Alabama, the kids and I visited my parents in West Virginia. At church Sunday, their pastor asked me how married life was treating me – as if we were newlyweds. It made me laugh. It also made me want to share this.

A Volunteer Force

Posted by Hallee on Sep 11, 2011 in Family, Life

Think about this for a moment: Every single person in today’s military is a volunteer. And every single person there has either joined or extended their contract during war time. We are coming up on the ten year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 9-11, and we have been at war for almost ten years.
