30 Days of Thankfulness Day 20

Posted by Hallee on Nov 20, 2013 in Christian Faith, Prayer

I posted a Facebook and Twitter status yesterday and asked, “How can I pray for you today?”

It is amazing the responses I got, publicly and privately. I was blessed all day long with the ability and freedom to pray for my friends and their friends. My asking and people responding blessed others as well, and they were open in sharing how much they appreciated it.

Encouraging Prayer

Posted by Hallee on Sep 17, 2012 in Christian Faith, Prayer

Friday, I posted this on my Hallee the Homemaker Facebook page:

My washing machine died, my laptop crashed, my gps went missing, Gregg has National Guard this weekend – which is also my book signing weekend for Topaz Heat, and I have to enroll Scott into public school on Monday.

I’m kinda done. If it wasn’t 10AM, I’d be considering red wine and dark chocolate. But, since it’s 10AM, I’m drinking a strawberry smoothie and prepping to go to the laundromat.

≈sigh≈

I did it moderately tongue-in-cheek, partially mocking myself, partially complaining. I expected some similarly toned replies. Instead, among many wonderful and encouraging comments, I got these:

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 30 – His Future

Posted by Hallee on Sep 25, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Love, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

Last Sunday, a couple in our church celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. I LOVE that there are several couples in our church that have been married for over 50 years. I think that is amazing. Gregg and I were older when we got married, so neither one of us really expect to make it to 65 years, but we’ll take 50 with gladness and joy.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 29 – His Faith

Posted by Hallee on Sep 10, 2011 in Christian Faith, Prayer, Praying Wife

Faith is the foundation of everything we believe. If we don’t have faith, how can we claim a relationship with God? For everything else we have discussed in this book, faith, to me, is the most important.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 28 – His Self Image

Posted by Hallee on Aug 27, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

Our pastor preached a sermon one time on marriage and said, “I can go to work and get beat up by work colleagues all day long. I can get cut off in traffic, I can get talked over in meetings, I can get disrespected by my associates. And I can come come to my wife who is my biggest cheerleader and who tells me I’m wonderful and can do it, and nothing else will matter. The rest of the world just fades away into unimportant.”

The Reversal

Posted by Hallee on Aug 4, 2011 in Christian Faith, Life, Marriage, Parenting, Prayer

I’d never planned to have any children with my first husband. We struggled financially without children, and nothing about his lifestyle really was conducive to having a child or rearing a child. I had to work full time, had no choice but to work full time, and that didn’t sit well with me in having a child. But, God saw things differently than I did.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 27 – His Obedience

Several months ago, Gregg was faced with a tough decision. He had fulfilled two contracts in Afghanistan, had been gone for eighteen months, and needed to decide if he was going to stay there or come home. He fasted and prayed and sought what the right decision would be. Then he called me.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 24 – His Talk

Posted by Hallee on Apr 30, 2011 in Christian Faith, Prayer, Praying Wife

I worked in the construction industry for twelve years. For twelve years, I was surrounded, day in and day out, with men working in a man’s environment. The language that was peppered throughout my place of employment on a daily basis would make a sailor blush. It was such a part of my daily life that I didn’t even hear it. There was one man with whom I worked who could use a curse word five times in a sentence: as the noun, adjective, adverb, pronoun, and verb. It was nearly comical.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 23 – His Walk

Posted by Hallee on Mar 26, 2011 in Christian Faith, Prayer, Praying Wife

There was a time in my life when I would have defined “your walk” specifically in terms of how you walk with God. As in, do you go to church? Do you give a tithe? Do you pray before meals?

I looked up the dictionary definition of “walk” in these terms and this is what I found: 8. to conduct oneself in a particular manner; pursue a particular course of life: to walk humbly with thy god.

What Matters Most

Posted by Hallee on Mar 18, 2011 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, holiness, Life, Prayer

One thing I hear all the time is that people’s lifestyles are so crazy and there isn’t time to spend with God. The thought of just fifteen minutes of devoted prayer time and a five minute “Sound Byte” devotional is overwhelming to many, not to speak of hours of devoted prayer time and hours of devoted Bible study. Yet, the average American adult spends 3-4 hours a day watching television.
