Author Turned Blogger

I saw something recently a blogger said about writing a book. “You’re not validated as a blogger until you’re selling some book you wrote in your sidebar.” That gave me pause. Maybe because I’m not really a blog reader, I didn’t really pay attention to a trend in bloggers-turned-author.

Raising a Healthy Family from Scratch

While most of us struggle to conquer our junk food cravings, Hallee Bridgeman and her family seem to be on the other side of the spectrum. The Hallee the Homemaker blogger chooses to feed her family a strict Levitical diet and prepares all meals from scratch. Hallee may be a pro at whipping up nutritious grub, but what is most important to her is making sure her kids understand the “why” to healthy foods. Find out how Hallee’s 4-year-old son became an expert wheat-grinder and why her teen daughter actually prefers the junk-free snack selection at home.

Best Laid Plans…

I feel a little bit like a fraud. “Christian Homeschooling Mom Enrolls Special Needs Child in Public School.” I don’t know how a family so strongly homeschool minded could end up with not one, but two children in public school and a 4-year-old in a preschool. However, despite what WE thought was best, God has intervened and taken us on a different direction.

Little Changes, Big Difference

Trying to get to the bottom of it, Gabrielle and her husband made a few changes around the house: they pulled her out of preschool, removed television and got rid of most of her toys. The result was a night-and-day change in her behavior. Gone was the anxiety, the tantrums, the anger. In its place, Gabrielle had a content 4-year-old who learned how to entertain herself (and her little sister).

Dinner on the Go

Yesterday, I planned to make hamburgers. But, my afternoon got away from me and I didn’t get the buns made in time. While I thought about what to do, it occurred to me that I don’t want to spend the next 8 weeks eating beef hot dogs and hamburgers. I figured, why not just make a meal and serve it on paper plates?

Shifts and Changes

I am excited to get Hallee the Homemaker back up to what it was before I took a (desperately needed) semi-break. The ideas for posts just come and come — I simply haven’t had the time to actually focus and concentrate and put things together. If we can get me through the summer months (where my “free” time will have to continue to be spent focusing on the next book coming out rather than blogging) then we’ll be back up and rolling!

Something Different

Sometimes, my heart feels a little broken. I wish I knew what else to call it. Sometimes, I look at my oldest son, Scott, and struggle with an overwhelming emotion that borders on heartache.

Finding Balance

I started typing the words, “I’m a homemaker…” when I realized that wasn’t right. Well, it IS right, it just isn’t complete. For the first time in my life, I wrote the words, “I’m a full time writer who manages two blogs and writes Christian romance novels.”
