Social Media is Replacing Social Life

Posted by Hallee on Jun 18, 2014 in Life

This morning, I received an invite to an “all day online party”. Basically, instead of getting together, socially, with a bunch of friends and friends of friends, I just have this in my “social media calendar”, and on that day I potentially go and order, and that “host” gets the “hostess” points and gets her free gifts.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 25

Posted by Hallee on Nov 25, 2013 in Life

I now live in Kentucky. Kentucky has the most picture-perfect four seasons for which you can hope. Leaves turn brilliant colors in autumn and fall from the trees as the weather cools and nights become crisp; winter snow and ice cover the landscape during the winter months and the temperatures are take-your-breath-away cold; daffodils and tulips break through the frozen ground, fruit trees bloom in a beautiful array, and days begin to warm in the spring; fireflies light up the evening skies, everything is green, fruit trees bring forth their abundance, and the days are oh-my-goodness-hot in the summer.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 14

Posted by Hallee on Nov 14, 2013 in Life

Out of four children, I’m the second oldest (and at 5’11” the SHORTEST!) My brother, Jim, is 16 months older than me, my brother, Ty, is 3.5 years younger, and my sister, Misty, is 5 years younger.

Our parents encouraged us to follow our dreams, to create, to imagine. We lived in a household where movies were adored and discussed and dissected. A household where books were consumed with equal passion.

Crazy Busy Week Prior to Vacation

Posted by Hallee on Jun 5, 2013 in Blog Stuff, Life, Writing

The day we return is the publication date for A Melody for James (stay tuned for purchase links!), and the garden will need some serious care after a week’s absence. Everything will get crazy busy again. For today, though, while I’m insanely trying to prepare my house for our house sitter, catch up on laundry so that I can pack, and seriously weed my garden so that nothing dies in our absence, I’m just imagining how wonderful it will be to kick back at the pool in our resort or sip coffee at Cafe Dumond.

The next post you get from me will be the announcement of the book sale!

Have a WONDERFUL week — and don’t forget to plan to spoil your husbands and dads for Father’s Day!

In the Right Place at God’s Time

Posted by Hallee on May 16, 2013 in Christian Faith, Life

streetLeaving for church last night, as I started down my street, I saw two little girls and a little toddler boy walking up the sidewalk. Something about them wasn’t right. They looked wrong. So, I stopped the car and rolled the window down. They were right in front of my house at that point and I was two doors down. One of the girls turned toward my car and started toward me. I got out of the car and said, “Are you okay?”

She said, “I can’t wake up my daddy, and we’re looking for Kendall’s house. She lives here somewhere.”

God Has Plans for the PERSON that is Me

Posted by Hallee on May 2, 2013 in Blog Stuff, Life, Writing

I honestly didn’t think this time last week that this blog would still be a going thing today. As a person, a human being, I was really turned off about posting on it and just kind of put off about it in general. In truth, I’ve been avoiding it.

Responsibility & Other ‘R’ Words

Posted by Hallee on Mar 25, 2013 in Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising teens

This guy didn’t fit in there. His hair was too long, his clothes were too wrong, and his attitude didn’t fit. I blew him off, and I guess he didn’t like it. At some point, somehow, he cornered me and dragged me into an empty room.

And he raped me.

I’ll spare you the horrific details. At some point, he choked me. Years later I realized that I passed out for a space of time. When I could breathe again, I thought he’d kill me, but something stopped him. I had bruises on my neck for days and wore every turtle necked sweater I owned in an attempt to hide them.

Author Turned Blogger

Posted by Hallee on Oct 6, 2012 in Life, Parenting, Writing

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.

Tuesday Morning Survey: Making Changes?

Posted by Hallee on Jun 19, 2012 in Blog Stuff, Life

In July, I’m going to bring you an interview I’m doing with a friend who had serious behavior and attitude problems with a preschooler, and through a series of total lifestyle changes, has seen amazing improvements in listening, attitude, and overall countenance. I can’t wait to let you meet her and hear about what she did.

As I’ve been preparing this interview, it occurred to me that YOU might have a story, too. If you do, would you allow me to interview you? You can either comment here and I can email you from the comment, or you can email me directly at hallee@halleethehomemaker.com.
