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.

Improvements

Posted by Hallee on Jan 17, 2013 in Parenting

I KNOW he is a miracle among miracles. I KNOW the fact that he can see, hear, comprehend — those are miracles.

After being open about some issues with him and the problems we’ve had with schools, and the process we’ve gone through and such, I get a lot of inquiries from family, friends, and readers about how he’s doing.

Racism in America

Posted by Hallee on Feb 29, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Christian Faith, holiness, Life

We believe, that as Christian parents, it’s our duty to teach our children to understand and defend the dignity and the worth of every human being. It’s core to the Christian culture, even though it isn’t always practiced due to the makeup of our culture by sinful man.

“How do I look?” Part 7 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 3, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

Women who are loving TOWARD men are always lovable BY men, no matter what those women look like over the course of the day to day fray.

“How do I look?” Part 6 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 2, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

The level of personal offense someone takes when presented with a truth claim does nothing whatsoever to invalidate the truth claim.

“How do I look?” Part 5 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Jan 1, 2012 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

The conflated argument Evans puts forward stands on the proposition that it “should make no difference” whether a wife maintains stewardship over her subjective appearance — that such stewardship or lack thereof ought to have absolutely no impact on her husband’s daily battle with sexual temptation.

“How do I look?” Part 4 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Dec 31, 2011 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

While Pastor Challies starts his article by pointing out the red herring Evans cooked up — that if wives slouch off on their appearance, husbands will cheat on them — that isn’t what he chooses to focus on in the main thrust. Challies makes the case that while YES appearance counts in marriage, he dispels the notion that becoming a slob absolves your spouse of any sin. Further, he draws the distinction between naturally growing old and living life with what he calls inward and outward appearance.

“How do I look?” Part 3 of 7

Posted by Gregg on Dec 30, 2011 in biblical manhood, Biblical womanhood, Holy matrimony

When a wife rejects or belittles her husband’s sexual needs, she very obviously HARMS his ability to avoid improper sexual impulses. But that isn’t entirely what either of these cited truth claims state. The truth claim in each of the above cases expands on that accepted fact by stating that when a wife ignores (a) her appearance and (b) her husband’s sexual needs, she is NOT HELPING him to avoid sexual temptation.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not attempting an argument from personal ignorance, nor am I accusing Evans of outright lying. After all, what would be her possible agenda?
