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 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 26 – His Deliverance

Posted by Hallee on Jul 23, 2011 in Christian Faith, Holy matrimony, Marriage, Praying Wife

There’s a man in our church to gave his testimony Sunday morning. His story is a story of deliverance that most of us have no ability to understand. He was raised in church, knew about Jesus Christ, and turned to God only when he needed help getting out of the worst trouble. A failed marriage with children, drug addiction, drug dealing to support addiction, and finally prison.

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.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 22 – His Emotions

Posted by Hallee on Mar 12, 2011 in Christian Faith, Life, Love, Marriage, Prayer, Praying Wife

I was talking to a retired homicide detective last week. He said that every dead child, every drug induced murder, every senseless death born of greed and anger and malice destroyed him inside. But, as a homicide detective, he couldn’t let those emotions out. Instead of going into some dead child’s bedroom and crying in a corner, he had to buck up and do his job. To compensate, he would go home and drink. His wife didn’t understand what he was struggling with, because he couldn’t open up the floodgate of emotions that would come as a result of acknowledging them, and in the end it nearly destroyed their marriage.

The Power of a Praying Wife: Chapter 21 – His Marriage

Two months into my first marriage, my husband quit his job. I had to withdraw plans to start school three weeks later, and we had to pack up and move back to his hometown. That decision he made started a cycle of unemployment/employment that made our marriage very stressful and very hard. Between the financial problems we faced and the addiction problems he faced during our over nine years of marriage, his adulterous affair and our divorce was a relief for me. I was very much over marriage, had no desire to even date, and never intended to be in a relationship with a man again. Six weeks later, I met Gregg.

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 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.
