Call for Testimonies

Posted by Hallee on Feb 25, 2014 in Blog Stuff

I’m going to write a book about managing a home with tips, tricks, encouragement, etc., from all of those angles. It’s still brewing. It won’t be until after summer before I can work on it (unless other things go faster than I expect.) But, I’d like to include testimonies from other wives/moms/homemakers out there who manage their home and other aspects of their lives…

Finding Balance

Posted by Hallee on Apr 11, 2012 in Housekeeping, Life, Marriage, Parenting, Writing

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.”

Things I’ve Learned This Week

Posted by Hallee on Mar 10, 2012 in Housekeeping, Life, Writing

This week was my first full week totally focused on this new venture as an “official” novelist. I’m working on my trilogy, focusing this week on the first one (Sapphire Ice) and the third one (Topaz Heat). Sapphire publishes this month. I’ve been working on final edits, getting feedback from a set of beta readers, writing the blurb, and working with the cover artist. Gregg has been researching how to publish it and all of the details and nuances involved within that big giant convoluted world (he sends me technical articles in emails titled, “Stuff I Read So That You Don’t Have To” — and when I skim through them I’m reminded of how much I love and adore my husband), and tweaking this blog.

On Topaz, I’ve been filling in the holes after the first draft, re-writing chapters, and fluffing out thoughts and feelings in scenes. I could do that all day long, really. I love writing.

I’ve also been trying to create a web presence as Hallee Bridgeman, Novelist, as opposed to Hallee the Homemaker. Which requires reading and commenting on author blogs as opposed to homemaker blogs, working the Facebook and Twitter scene as Hallee Bridgeman instead of Hallee the Homemaker, and learning how Google+ operates.

I’ve learned a few things this week:

Today is “Feminist Pride Day”

Posted by Hallee on Mar 8, 2012 in Biblical womanhood

Let me say something here that I’ve probably danced around but never said.

I’m not a feminist.

You Can’t Do Everything

Posted by Hallee on Jan 24, 2012 in Blog Stuff, Housekeeping, Life

I’d been tossing around the idea of quitting blogging for about three months now. I really started thinking about it as soon as it dawned on me just how much less free time I have during the day when I no longer conducted my marriage via long distance means. Since I feel very strongly that the Holy Spirit is who led me to starting the blog, I started praying about it.

Wives & Mommies Need a Day Off, Too

Posted by Hallee on Mar 11, 2011 in Housekeeping, Life

One of the things about being a homemaker – especially a homemaker with small children – ESPECIALLY a homemaker with small children and a husband 8,000 miles away (ahem) – is that there is never a break. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, we’re needed, wanted, touched, hung on to, cooking, cleaning, wiping noses, finding toys or shoes or softball gloves.

Fiery Darts

Posted by Hallee on Feb 20, 2011 in Blog Stuff, Christian Faith, holiness, inspiration, Life

I have a Google thing that patrols the internet looking for the name of my blog or the link to my blog.  I get a comprehensive email every evening giving me links.  (Do you know how many times Halle Barry is associated with the word “homemaker”?  A whole lot more often than you’d think.) As […]
