The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 20 – His Attitude

Posted by Hallee on Feb 12, 2011 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

My husband Gregg is an incredibly upbeat man. He’ll say he’s very moody; however, that moodiness he feels typically doesn’t manifest until it comes out in his writing and his poetry. His outward attitude is one of confidence and joy. He sings while he works and does chores around the house, he teases and jokes, he laughs, he has fun. He is encouraging and exciting, ready to go on an adventure in a spontaneous moment. Even when I feel myself reacting negatively to something, he’ll crack a joke about it or lighten the mood enough that I’m able to work through the negativity.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 19 – His Past

Posted by Hallee on Jan 29, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

Gregg and I were married when he was 34. In those 34 years leading up to meeting me, he had buried his mother, graduated high school, fought in a war, got out of the military, attended three colleges, obtained 30 professional certifications, started a career, gotten married, gotten divorced, and lived another five years dating and working and existing.

Long story short, he’d lived thirty-four years.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 18 – His Fatherhood

Posted by Hallee on Jan 8, 2011 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, Love, Marriage, Parenting, Praying Wife

Since the beginning of the 20th century, there has been an effort to denigrate men, feminize them, render them incapable of any kind of clear thought outside of Monday night football. Sitcoms and commercials make fathers out to be impotent dimwits, buffoons, idiots, while a take-charge woman cleans up the mess behind them. The more aware of it I have become, the more irritated I get at it, and the less popular culture I’m willing to endure.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 17 – His Relationships

My husband is a very social person. He can chat with strangers over any subject matter for hours and never bat an eye. He can work a room at a party or banquet and enjoy meeting new people, catching up with old acquaintances, and find something in common with just about anyone. But he has very few very close friends.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 16- His Priorities

Posted by Hallee on Nov 13, 2010 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Prayer, Praying Wife

I was very curious about the way Stormie Omartian addressed this chapter. She basically said that if you (the wife) keep your husband a priority, then it will help him keep his priorities straight. Then she spent the chapter explaining how to keep your husband a priority.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 15 – His Reputation

I read in a marriage book one time to be careful with whom you share your marital problems, because it’s very easy to update friends on the problems, but we tend to forget to update on the progress. If you’re like me, you can sit there and think of friends who seem to constantly trash talk their husbands, but who rarely praise them for anything good they’ve done.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 14- His Integrity

There was a time in our marriage when there was little trust between me and Gregg. I’d say one thing and he wouldn’t believe it. He’d say another thing and I wouldn’t believe it. It was a very dark time in our lives, and even typing about it and thinking about itelicits a bit of an emotional reaction in my heart.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 13 – His Trials

Posted by Hallee on Oct 9, 2010 in Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Love, Praying Wife

Gregg and I rarely fight. I’m very passive, and he and I pretty much agree on most things, so there isn’t a lot left to fight about. We’ve had our moments, and our marriage had a really rough year at one point, but for the most part, there has been little fighting.

Observing a ‘Daniel Fast’

Posted by Hallee on Sep 27, 2010 in Christian Faith, Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, holiness

In observing the diet, I will eat only vegetables, fruits, and unleavened bread that does not contain any ingredient that is not made directly from a vegetable or fruit. For instance, I am going to make tortillas out of fresh ground flour and coconut oil (instead of shortening or beef tallow). When I make a salad, I’ll flavor it with olive oil (cold pressed) and lemon juice. I will only drink water. I will allow my kids to eat dairy, but I likely will not be preparing meat for them.
